The medieval Coat of Arms has been used since the 11th Century, most commonly to indicate the military unit that the bearer of the shield belonged to. As time progressed, upper class European families adopted the idea into the form of a family emblem. These familial Coats of Arms were passed down from one generation to the next, and served the purpose of heritage and pride. It was exacted into a social science, and modern-day England still governs the granting of arms by a governing body known as the College of Arms.
The Coat of Arms has always been considered a symbol of pride and heritage, distinguishing one military unit from the next; one noble family from another.
RTG has developed an online video slot based on the Coat of Arms theme, named, unsurprisingly, Coat Of Arms.
The online video slot features 5 reels and 25 paylines, a Free Spins Round as well as a Special Bonus Round.
Coat Of Arms Symbols
Symbols are representative of medieval times, and include a sword, a golden crown, a decanter of wine draped with the fruit of the vine, a white as well as a dark knight, and playing card symbols 10 to Ace, being the lower paying symbols.
The Dark Knight is the Coat Of Arms wild symbol, and will substitute for all other symbols, with the exception of the scatter symbol. The Dark Knight only appears on reels 2, 3 and 4.
The scatter symbol is represented by the White Knight.
Coat Of Arms also features a second scatter symbol, or bonus symbol, represented by a golden shield.
Free Spins Round
The Coat Of Arms free spins round is activated by landing a combination of three or more of the White Knight scatter symbols, anywhere on the reels. 10 Free Spins are awarded. The White Knight scatter symbols remain in place for the duration of the 10 free spins, increasing the chance of making up a winning combination of symbols.
Coat Of Arms Special Bonus Round
Landing three golden shield symbols anywhere on reels 1 to 3 triggers the special bonus round. The reward is 15 free spins, with multipliers being applied after every 5 spins.
Coat Of Arms features two random progressive jackpots. The progressive jackpots can be awarded at the end of any spin, and are awarded randomly.
Coat Of Arms Standard Jackpot Payout
Besides the two progressive jackpots, Coat Of Arms also features a standard jackpot payout. The standard jackpot is won by landing a combination of 5 of the castle symbols on any active payline. The jackpot pays out at a whopping 5 000 credits.
Flexible Betting Options
Like wagering in games at online pokies sites in Australia, betting options in this slot are also flexible, starting at a minimum bet of 0.01 credits per active payline. The maximum bet is 5 credits per payline.
The interface is very easy to navigate. This makes playing Coat Of Arms a highly enjoyable experience and ensures the game is suitable for new and experienced players alike.
