Branded slots are always a promising idea on paper. You take a popular tv show, hit movie, rock band, or any other icon that people love, and build a slot game around it. However, we tend to find that these branded games can be hit and miss, with some becoming all-time classics and others… well, not so much. Where does the Knight Rider slot from software developer NetEnt fit into this scale?
If you’re not old enough to remember Knight Rider, it was a popular mid-80s TV show starring David Hasselhoff as a vigilante and his super AI talking car. Think Tesla, but more advanced, 10-times cooler, and looking like a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. The folks at NetEnt have built an online slot around this fun TV show.
Now, there is plenty of nostalgia bait going on here, but NetEnt also knows a thing or two about building slots. So, with Knight Rider, you get the awesome theme and NetEnt’s usual slick visuals, immersive audio, and innovative features.
Starting with the visuals, the slot has a desert background with the car K.I.T.T sitting there. On the reels, you can see characters like Michael Knight (the Knight Rider himself), the trailer truck, and several components from K.I.T.T. Overall, the slot has NetEnt’s usual glossy visual flair and outstanding attention to detail.
This online slot is charting a course directly for the everyday slot player, skipping the high rollers and budget players. With 0.20 cent to $40 coins best spread, most players will get something from this, apart from those on the tightest budgets or those looking to spend big.
Branded slots don’t usually have big jackpots, and that is the case here with the 7,000x your stake top prize. Still, the Knight Rider RTP of 96.07% is just above average and the high variance provides a solid hit rate. Certainly, we were able to pick up consistent winning combos on the game, without ever collecting a big prize.
There are interesting bonuses, including the Knight Rider free spins round, walking multiplier wilds in the base game, and turbo boost (not available in the UK). So whether you are a kid of the 80s that knows what’s cool, a David Hasselhoff fan, or just a slot player looking for fun, take a few spins on the reels of the Knight Rider slot, it can give your bankroll a turbo boost!
