Hi-tech cars are pretty common these days, but back in the 1980s the only smart car anyone knew or cared about was K.I.T.T. This was the artificially intelligent car that starred alongside David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight in the hit television show Knight Rider. The show was first aired in 1982 and ran for just four seasons, but by the time it ended in 1986, Knight Rider had become a legend. And now, thanks to the hi-tech wizards at NetEnt, the legend has returned as a superb retro slot game.
Where to Play Knight Rider
A Fantastic Tribute to a Cult Classic
The Knight Rider slot will have fans grinning from the moment the game is launched. It opens with the exact same intro sequence as the TV show, complete with the original theme music, and that sets the scene perfectly for the game itself. The slot has five reels, four rows and employs an impressive "retro hi-tech" visual style that pulls you right back to the eighties in a single rev of the engine.
Higher-value symbols on the reels include Michael's communicator watch, K.I.T.T.'s gullwing steering wheel, a truck, red lights and Michael Knight himself. The Knight Rider logo serves as a scatter symbol and appears on the second, third and fourth reels.
The reels are also packed with Walking Multiplier Wild symbols. These act as wilds and multiply the value of any win that they help you to achieve, but instead of disappearing when you spin the reels, they simply shift one reel to the right and increase in value. This means they can help you to land bigger wins until they shift off the game grid.
This game has plenty of features that can be triggered, and that makes every spin as exciting as the last. Some of the main features are:
- Turbo Boost - This feature will be triggered at random, and add three or four Walking Multiplier Wild symbols to the reels. Each wild can have a multiplier of anything from x1 to x5.
- Free Spins - Land three scatter symbols on the reels and you'll win 10 free spins. You can also choose to buy the Free Spins feature by hitting the Buy Feature button to the left of the reels and paying the price shown.
- Laser Wilds - This feature is only active in the Free Spins round. It fires a laser to give you up to three Walking Multiplier Wild symbols at the start of each free spin.
Knight Rider is a game that any fan of the original TV show will love. As well as the familiar theme music, this slot is loaded with dialogue snippets from both Michael and K.I.T.T. Throw in the multiple features that can be triggered, not to mention the ability to win a top prize of 7,000 times your stake, and you'll want to be driving this slot for quite some time.
