Knights and Maidens transports you to a mystical realm where you'll be trying to rescue the fair damsel from imprisonment at the hands of the Evil Witch. Visually, it's stunning - credit where credit is due, the team at Cryptologic have built a fabulous looking game here - everything looks more like it was painted in oil on a canvas and then scanned in, rather than drawn on computer.
Looks aside, the game-play is at once engaging and engrossing. Apart from standard slots play, you'll be trying to trigger the Cavalier's Quest, in which you'll be charging in on your white steed to save the day - and potentially win a whopping $50,000!
Set off on your own epic quest today by visiting 888's Casino-On-Net, where you can play Knights and Maidens Slots, and many other excellent games.
To Rescue a Princess, You Need a Plan
Before you go charging into battle, let's cover the basics of how this game works. Like all slot games since the dawn of time, the aim here is to spin the reels and try to get matching symbols to line up with each other.
However, Knights and Maidens will allow you to play more than just the centre line. In fact, there are a total of 25 different lines that criss-cross their way across the five reels, and you can activate as many as you like. Each one does cost a coin, but it also gives you that extra chance to win.
The game allows you to define your own sweet spot between number of lines and size of bet by setting your own coin values anywhere between 5c and $10.
The Medieval Cast of Characters
The lower end of the pay scale is taken up with beautifully embroidered high playing card symbols worth between 75 and 250 coins each. The rest of the standard symbols include, in increasing order of value, the Owl, the Evil Witch, the Fairy, the Dragon, and the Castle.
Special symbols include the Wizard who is the game's Wild symbol, filling in for almost any other symbol in the game. The Knight acts as the game's Scatter, and if at least three of him appear, you'll win a number of free spins.
Magical Bonus Rounds
The Cavalier's Quest is triggered when three or more of the Maiden symbol appear anywhere on one of your active pay lines. There are five quests that you must achieve in order to successfully rescue the Maiden. Each quest completed results in a random amount of bonus coins. Try to make it all the way to the end because if you fail along the way, you get kicked back to the main game and will have to try and retrigger the Quest again.
