Burned at the stake in 1431 for allegedly being a heretic and later canonised by the Roman Catholic Church, Joan of Arc is considered by many to be a heroine of France for her role in the Hundred Years’ War. This superb part of French history has become the inspiration for Gameart who has created the slot Joan of Arc – offering up to 50x total bet on a ways-to-win line!
Siege of Orleans
It was a French teenage peasant who broke the English siege in the city of Orleans, France. The slot reminds us of the battle with a deserted field littered with spears, shields, swords and a thick, ghostly mist carpeting the green grass and tattered flags. The upper-value symbols include Joan of Arc on her white steed, French soldier, castle, coat of arms and metal helmet.
There are also the common, lower–value K, Q, J, 10 and nine poker symbols. Suitable for the period, instrumental music plays when the reels spin.
White Flag Wild
Bearing the Fleurs-de-Lys, the white flag wild symbol appears on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th reels to substitute for all other symbols outside of the Joan of Arc with sword drawn scatter. Unlike the wilds in some other games, this wild symbol does not form its own, exclusive winning payline.
Bonus 10 Free Spins
With sword drawn, the Joan of Arc scatter symbol can award prizes of up to x2, x10 or x50 total bet with a collection of 3, 4 or 5 randomly placed on the spaces. We found that the feature was not next to impossible to trigger. Also, note that it is possible to re-trigger free spins.
Expand & Split Feature
Some symbols may appear with an arrow border. When such symbols are part of a winning combination then, when triggered by a scatter, they will fully expand on the reel and split to share the space with the original symbol. In free spins mode the same symbols expand on the reel and split, again sharing the space with the original symbol, if they form part of a win but without the need for a scatter.
In both scenarios, the individual symbols sharing a space are evaluated separately when calculating payline win. This feature was triggered frequently during our tests.
Red/Black Gamble Feature
For an opportunity to double the winnings for a round, players are given the opportunity to predict the colour of a presented upside down card, for a chance to double their winnings. This is an optional feature, and one can choose to bypass it by taking the round winnings.
