The reels are set on a mountaintop and as you spin the reels, the Knight will be walking and opening Chests of Fortune. The 2018 release features 6 reels and offers the Megaways game engine, where up to 7 symbols can appear on a single reel and from 117,649 up to 586,971 ways to win can be on the offer, depending on your current game level. The BTG title pays left to right, starting from the leftmost reel, with three of a kind being the minimum for landing wins, except when it comes to the Amethyst and the Ruby, which pay even for two of a kind. Betting starts at $0.10 and the biggest bet cannot go over $20 per spin. Autoplay offers up to 100 automatic spins, with the option to set the loss limit and the single win limit.
All the high-value symbols on the reels are Gemstones, including the already mentioned Amethyst and Ruby, as well as the Sapphire and the Emerald. Wild will not appear on the reels, it will come from the Chests of Fortune. They can be simple Wilds or stacked Sword Wilds, which can cover entire reels and add a win multiplier. Simple playing cards are used for low-paying symbols. There are no Scatters on the offer, because you need to fill the Shield of Fortune to trigger free spins or move up one level.
As you spin the reels, the Knight will move forward and open Chests of Fortune and each time this happens, one of four features are triggered. If you get Standard Symbol Bonus, all playing card symbols on the reels will be transformed into Wilds. The Sword Bonus will add up to 3 Sword Wilds that cover entire reels and can award a win multiplier up to 7x. The Fireball feature will add up to 4 Wilds on the reels. The Gem Symbol Bonus will turn one or two Gemstones on the reels into Wilds, which will come a 1x, 2x, or 3x multiplier, depending on your current level.
Collect Gemstones from the Chest of Fortune and add them to the Shield of Fortune. Once you collect all 4 Gemstones, you will move one level up or play the Free Spins feature. If you decide to play freebies, 10 of them will be waiting for you. If you have reached the third level already, free spins will start automatically. All Gems that land on the reels 2 to 5 will be turned into Wilds with 1x, 2x or 3x multipliers, depending on your current level. The Knight is also active during freebies and he will continue collecting Gemstones, to get you extra free spins.
