Sweden – NetEnt launches Knight Rider video slotBy Phil - 25 February 2022
NetEnt, in collaboration with Universal Games and Digital Platforms, today announced the launch of the thrilling new Knight Rider Video Slot. Starring David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a crime fighter intent on justice, NBCUniversal’s popular Knight Rider TV series aired four captivating seasons from 1982-1986. Branded games have been a pillar of NetEnt’s slots portfolio for years, and this latest addition aims to introduce the series to a new generation of Knight Rider fans.
Bringing to life the most-loved facets of the show, this high-energy 5-reel, 4-row slot features Turbo Boosts, Free Spins with Laser Wilds, and an innovative wait-cutting Buy Feature. With a max win of 7000x, this high volatility game features original clips and sound effects from the show, and will have players hanging on to the edge of their seats.
Immersed in the classic Knight Rider universe and surrounded by familiar characters, such as Michael Knight and K.I.T.T., players can experience the thrill of Walking Multiplier Wilds, powering the video slot by appearing anywhere on the reels in both the main game and Free Spins. When these Wilds form part of a win, players won’t lose them on the next spin, they stick and jump to the reel on the right with multipliers matching the reel they stick to, providing players more chances at bigger wins.
For those players that are looking for more Free Spins thrills to appear, they have the option of the Buy Feature, a button that can be activated for 140x the bet. Once this has been triggered, Free Spins begin immediately without a main game spin.
“This game brings back the ‘80s with style,” said Todd Haushalter, Chief Product Officer, Evolution. “Knight Rider is a beloved classic and the team has done a great job at incorporating this world into the video slot. Knight Rider fans, both existing and new, are going to love being immersed in this iconic show, and we can’t wait for players to take to the streets of LA and sink their teeth into all the fun the game has to offer.”
