Return of The Green Knight: Slot Overview

Even the most gracious of hosts would probably have second thoughts about a return visit from the entity known as The Green Knight - one of the central characters in a 14th-century romantic chivalric poem with connections to King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, Sir Gawain in particular. The Arthurian legends feature large in a lot of Play'n GO's work, and today's slot, Return of The Green Knight, keeps the range ticking along. It follows in the footsteps of previous slots such as The Sword & the Grail and, even more closely, The Green Knight, released in early 2021. Return of The Green Knight ups the ante, though, by adding a new sticky element to its Shield Spins phase, dramatically boosting winning potential in the process.

Return of The Green Knight might not look exactly like The Green Knight, but it's obvious the two are related. The same dreamy, romantic, chivalric atmosphere returns and the base game is played on the edge of a twisty wood beside a bridge leading into a fortified structure, let's call Camelot for now, while free spins occur in a spot steeped in some sort of dark green magic. As before, the graphical standard is high, and it doesn't take much effort to ease your imagination off to pretend you're back in Ye Olde England battling the forces of darkness with Arthur, Merlin, and the gang.

Another one of Return of The Green Knight's components which has been tuned is volatility, now rated 10 out of 10, meaning it doesn't get much more volatile than this. The RTP is ever so slightly higher; the default value is now 96.27%, though four lower configurations are available as well. The setup remains the same, though, so the gaming takes place on a 5x3 grid with 20 paylines, and bets of 10 p/c to $/€100 may be selected.

As before, T though A symbols make up Return of The Green Knight's low pays, while its highs are four character symbols. Hitting a winning line of 5 low pays awards players 2 to 4 times the bet, rising to 7.5 to 25 times the bet for a 5-of-a-kind winning low. Wilds appear on all reels as well, possessing base values of 100x the bet for a 5 wild win, or wilds can be used to replace any regular pay symbols to help complete a win.

Wild symbols in Return of The Green Knight also receive a significant kick in the pants from the multiplier element, which is available in the base game, free spins, and the free spins within free spins section Shield Spins.

Wild Multiplier

The Wild Multiplier can apply to all wilds that hit on any spin. The values displayed above the reels for the Wild Multiplier are x2, x5, x10, x25, or x100. If the wild substitutes for another symbol with an active Wild Multiplier, the win is multiplied by the value displayed on the wild and the Wild Multiplier. Wild wins with multipliers are not cumulative on the same payline.

Free Spins

Landing 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols in the base game awards 2x, 5x, or 100x the bet, respectively, as well as 5 free spins. All wilds that land in free spins have the Wild Multiplier applied to them. Also, the Wild Multiplier increases on each spin – starting from x2, then moving through x5, x10, x25, and x100.

Shield Spins

When 2 or more scatters land in free spins, the respective scatter payout is made, plus 5 Shield Spins are awarded. In Shield Spins, the Wild Multiplier value is locked in from the triggering free spin for the duration of the Shield Spins. In addition, all wilds that land during Shield Spins are held in place for the duration of the Shield Spins feature, with the Wild Multiplier attached. Scatters do not land in Shield Spins. When Shield Spins end, free spins continue if there are any left to do so.

Return of The Green Knight: Slot Verdict

When looking back over Return of The Green Knight's family tree, a rather neat evolutionary path has been laid out, which has led us to this point. First, there was the 300 Shields-like gaming found in The Sword & the Grail, where collecting scatter symbols in free spins could level them up and lead to ever higher multipliers. Then came The Green Knight, which simplified the process so that the multipliers would increase on each free spin – with Shield Spins thrown in for good measure, and now we've got Return of the Green Knight. Return of The Green Knight makes Shield Spins even more special for the simple reason that wilds, when they hit, are sticky, so they remain in place attending to their wild/multiplying duties till the Shield Spins are complete.

The sticky element is both a small and colossal change at the same time. One thing it's done is make Shield Spins more desirable than ever. Where before, they were handy for drawing out a free spins session and possibly dishing out a few extra wins, now they have the ability to go completely nuts. No guarantees, of course, and Return of The Green Knight is maxed out in terms of volatility, after all. However, winning potential has significantly increased as well, now boasting a figure of 40,000x the bet, which is way higher than before. Max win odds have been juggled around as well as a result, now coming in with a 1 in 333,333,333.3 probability.

Why all those threes? Perhaps it's got something to do with the magic of mathematics, and for lucky players, there is the potential of hitting some pretty magical moments on the reels as well. Not for every wannabe keyboard Knight of the Round Table, but strike Return of The Green Knight on a good day, and it's got the ability to shock and entertain up there with the best of them in Play'n GO's Arthurian Legend-related slot range.

Good

Though the additions and adjustments to the standard Green Knight experience aren’t game changing, the thrill of the progressive multiplier action still holds up.
