You might need a bit more than a base game to get you through this tiresome event. Fortunately, Novomatic has made sure to add some to this slot, starting with a wild icon. This comes in the form of the coat of arms with the word ‘WILD’ written across it. As a wild, it will stand in for all other icons on the reels in order to form a winning combination. The only exception to this rule is present in the game’s scatter symbol
. Furthermore, if this icon lands in the centre of the third reel, it will turn into Magic Swords. Any symbol that the swords point to after rotation will turn into wild icons!
And as far as the scatter icon goes, this comes in the form of the image of one of the royal towers. Scatter icons have the great advantage of providing a pay out wherever they show up on the reels. If three or more of these come into view in any location, you will initiate the Shield Bonus. This requires you to select six shields, one by one. Doing so will provide you with one of two different reveals. The burning sun symbol opens a random shield. The gold gemstone will activate an inactive sector on the wheel and make it gold. The sector remains gold until the next jewel is won. Gold sectors contain bigger prizes. Then, after you’ve chosen your six shields, you can spin the wheel. This gives you the chance to win additional prizes, while a gold sector gives you an extra spin.
Finally, the game also contains a gamble round. This becomes active after every winning spin in the base game. Should you decide to play it, you will see a new screen come into view with a pinball machine on it. Pressing the ‘Gamble’ button will drop a ball into play and it will fire off into the machine. If one of the ‘X3’ or ‘X5’ sections is hit five times, it will increase the value of the multiplier to that amount. Then, the ball needs to land in a multiplier section at the bottom of the screen in order to provide such. If it lands in the ‘Lose’ section, your winnings from the triggering round are entirely lost.
