Knights in white armour and damsels in distress are popular icons from medieval romances. The popularity of these is also reflected in some fantastic online pokies. Two of the pokies that can be played at Ignition Casino and Joe Fortune are reviewed and recommended.
Coat of Arms is a video pokie from Realtime Gaming. The Black Knight is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property. But it appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4. The White Knight is the scatter symbol and awards payouts multiplied by the total bet. The other thematic symbols include castle, sword and shield, chalice and bag of gold. The low payout symbols are ornately designed playing card icons. The Re-Spin feature is triggered when two or more White Knight symbols appear from left to right. After the payouts are made the reels with the White Knight are held and the other reels are spun again up to 10 times. Only scatter payouts are in the re-spins. The online pokie also has a regular free spins feature triggered by the golden shield symbol. 15 free spins are awarded. Payouts are doubled during the first five free spins; tripled during the next five free spins and quadrupled during the final five. During the free spins if you can collect five crown symbols then 5 extra free spins will be awarded. Coat of Arms also includes the Minor and Major randomly triggered progressive jackpots.
Heroes’ Realm from Rival Gaming is different in some material ways. It is a three reels online pokie with a single payline. The lady in the pokie is not a damsel in distress but fights alongside the knight. The graphics and animations are as good as in any video pokie. The symbols on the reels include weapons like sword, battle axe, daggers, shield, flail and war hammer and a magic vial and a treasure chest. Most of the symbols have to appear on all three reels for a payout. The battle axe also pays when two are aligned from left to right. The treasure chest pays when one or more appear anywhere on the reels. Crossed knives symbols award 10 free spins or 50 free spins depending on the number of symbols. In the bonus game on the second screen you first choose either the male or the female hero. The chosen hero then fights five enemies in the castle courtyard. Players will be awarded random credits for each enemy killed.
