Realtime Gaming’s Coat of Arms Video Slot Review
October 11, 2013
Medieval games seem to come out on a regular basis in the online casino world, but the Coat of Arms video slot by Realtime Gaming really sets the standard on what software companies will have to do if they want to be competitive with a game that uses this theme. Based on a classic matchup between a black knight and a white knight, Coat of Arms combines several bonus features and a large jackpot with a balanced paytable that gives you a chance to win a wide range of sizable payouts. This is a great game for video slot fans.
With Coat of Arms, you're dealing with a 25-payline video slot. There are five reels in this game, and each reel shows three symbols at a time. The coins start out at a super-low $0.01 each, so you should have no problem fitting the $0.25-per-spin minimum prize per spin into your bankroll. The coins go all the way up to $5.00 each, so the maximum amount you can bet on each spin is $125. This means that there will be a bet size that fits your bankroll nicely no matter how big or small it is.
The black knight is the wild symbol in this game, and if you're familiar with the mythology that surrounds the classic stories of different knights, then you'll realize how fitting this is. This knight will show up on the second, third and fourth reels only, but he helps out a great deal by giving you wins that you wouldn't have gotten other wise and by hitting your winning combinations with a nice 2x muiltiplier. The top jackpot in this game is when you get five of the castle symbols with one of the black knights symbols for a 10,000x payout. Without a wild, it pays out 5,000x instead.
The white knight is the scatter in Coat of Arms. Two or more of them trigger a re-spin feature where you get up to 10 re-spins to trigger scatter payouts. All of your scatters stay on the reels during the free spins, and you can get paid in a major way with this feature. You can also get a free spins bonus round. Pick up three or more shields, and you'll get a set of 15 free spins. The first five have a 2x multiplier, the second five have a 3x multiplier, and the last five have a 4x multiplier.
