Coat of Arms Slots

coat-of-armsCoat of Arms is one of the better looking RTG slot machines that you will see these days, focusing on medieval Europe and offering inside a decent variety of objects and characters from those times. The Medieval period is interesting to a lot of people, a large part of it being the fascination with knights and sword fighting, with huge unconquerable castles and the legends of those times. Coat of Arms is a charming game and it manages to put all that in front of you, in a design that is highly embellished and manages to look great because of it.

The game’s claim to fame is not based solely on its nice design though. Its 5 reels are host to a total of 25 bet lines, with top payouts giving the player as much as $10,000. You will notice that RTG didn’t skimp on the features in this title, so you get a few knights that act either as scatter or wild symbols, while being responsible for free spins and multipliers. The usual Minor and Major progressive jackpots from RTG are available here as well, both randomly awarded prizes.

Features of Coat of Arms

The two coolest symbols in Coat of Arms were selected to be the main features as well, so it’s double the pleasure when you see them show up on the reels. The two characters are the Black Knight and the White Knight.

Black Knight is the substitute symbol, a wild feature that can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4. Its substitution doesn’t work when it comes to the White Knight, perfectly normal since that’s his archenemy. The power of the Black Knight is visible whenever you get a combo going with its help, as it also doubles the prize offered (2x multiplier).

White Knight is the second feature symbol, acting as a scatter, meaning that it will give out prizes based on the total number of symbols present anywhere on the reels. With just two White Knights, the payout is rather low at 2x what the bet was. It keeps going higher with each extra White Knight, with five of them giving out 200 times the bet value.

Re-Spin Feature – One of the great things about this game is that it has both re-spins and free spins. The re-spin option appears whenever you have 2+ scatter symbols appearing on consecutive reels, starting from the left. You can get up to 10 re-spins this way.


Free Games Feature

The bonus round with free spins is not triggered by the White Knight scatter in this game. Instead, there is a second scatter symbol that can appear, a Golden Shield which is limited to the first three game reels. Get all three shields to appear, and the game gives you 15 games for free. It’s an interesting feature, one that adds a lot of value with multipliers and with bonus crowns, but which removes the White Knight scatter for its duration.

The multipliers go up for every 5 games you go through. They start with 2x multipliers for the initial 5 games, after which they go to 3x for the next 5 and to 4x for the last 5 games.

The Crown is a part of the free spins that is only available in this part of the game. You will notice that a Crown symbol will sometimes appear on the 3rd reel, as a wild symbol. Whenever you get these Crowns, they are collected and once you get 5 of them you receive an extra 5 free spins (up to 10 extra free spins possible).

Betting options and jackpots

The game’s betting range is between $0.01 and $25. The maximum amount used here covers 25 lines with $1 coins, though you can reduce the lines or the coin value if the budget is too low.

The normal top payout in Coat of Arms is offered for five Castle symbols and it’s worth 5,000 coins. It can be worth double that amount though, but only if the Black Knight wild is part of that combination with at least one symbol. $10,000 is the actual amount you can take out, in the best case scenario.

The Minor and Major Jackpots are progressive prizes, so they grow up in time, until someone wins them. Then, they start over from a fixed base amount. In this case, the prizes are given randomly, at the end of the turn.

Design and symbols

The design in Coat of Arms is definitely one of its strong suits. It’s full of colorful details, every little symbol has seen extensive work put into it, there are Medieval weapons and silver goblets. Best of all, there are knights acting as the feature symbols, plus a fortress waiting to be conquered at the top of the screen. Even the reels have plenty of small decorations on them, plus they are encased with golden borders that have gems in them.

Symbols: Black Knight (wild), White Knight (scatter, 200x the bet value), Golden Shield (scatter), Castle (5,000x), Sword and Shield (1,000x), Silver Goblet (500x), Bag of Gold (500x), Ace & King (250x), Queen & Jack (200x), Ten & Nine (150x).


Is It Worth Playing?

Absolutely! If you’re a fan of the Middle Ages, at least the part that is about nobility, about knights and sword fighting, Coat of Arms is the perfect slot to play. It has the right kind of payout as well, at least for the kind of money it requires you to invest.

You will find Coat of Arms at any online casino which chooses to use software from RTG, playable either for free or for real money.
