St George’s Day Slots
Each and every kingdom have their own historical national hero, very much known as the ‘Patron Saint’, this courageous being has written the course of history through their willfulness to defeat the enemy and bring victory to their humble country. For England, this zealous being is none other than St George, hence why annually on 23rd April the celebration of St George’s Day is observed as a tribute and dedicated day to the patriotic hero. Here at Castle Jackpot, we do not like to shy away from any celebrations, most definitely not those that are celebrated in honour of such a courageous being and for our contribution to the day, we decided to dedicate a post to the patriotic day with online slots we find fitting.
Though there is very little known facts about St George’s life, there is plenty of evidence that tells us that he was one of the highest ranking officers in the Roman army and is thought to have been killed around 303 AD. The most ironic fact of them all is that St George is hailed as a ‘Patron Saint’ in England, however, he was not even English and it is believed that he may have never even stepped foot in England as he was born over 2000 miles away in Cappadocia, now known as modern day Turkey and thought to have died in Lydda known as modern day Israel in the Roman territory of Palestine.
Fun Fact: legend has it St George is known to be a knight who slayed the dragon and saved the princess and that is why his legacy is so widely celebrated.
On that note, we decided to begin our slay of the slots with Angel Princess. An online slot brought the jousters of Castle Jackpot by Blueprint Gaming and is composed of a fairy tale garden theme, with symbols of fairies, dragonflies, butterflies and doves adding to mystical illusion. Made up of 5 reels and 40 fixed paylines, knights and maidens have the chance to spark the numerous bonus features on offer, from free spins to stacked wilds and the chance to land the colossal wins from the progressive jackpot.
Sword of Destiny
As mentioned St George slayed the dragon in order to save the princess, and we can assume this duel was commenced with a powerful sword and here at Castle Jackpot we thought what better way to commend the sword than finding one of the online slots dedicated to swords. Sword of Destiny is the perfect slot to pay tribute to the sword! Composed of 5 reels with paylines ranging from 25 to 50, this slot brought to Castle Jackpot by Bally is joustable from 50p! Set in an epic fantasy realm, jousters have the chance to activate 4 random features in the base game awarding thou clumped, random and group wilds alongside the symbol upgrades.
Our personal favourite bonus feature of the Sword of Destiny online slot is the Temple Tower Jackpot that Castle Jackpot jousters can duel in when the Bonus symbol is shown on reels 1, 3 and 5 all at the same time. Then jousters will stumble upon a ladder with 16 steps and on the ladder, thou are in with the chance to win cash prizes alongside winning one of the 3 fixed jackpots. The higher thou climb up the ladder the bigger prize on offer to thou.
This post would not be complete without mentioning of one of the online slots that are dedicated to a dragon theme. If there were no dragon, the legend of St George would not exist and that is why Dragon Kingdom has made it to the list. Brought to the ardent jousters of Castle Jackpot by Pragmatic Play, this is a 5 reel and 25 payline slot, which comes with free spins, a various amount of super stacked symbols and multiplier amalgamations. Jousters are able to commence their duel from 25p to £125 per spin and be awarded 100 coins for 5 of the most colossal symbol, the warrior, on a payline.
St George embarked on his journey to becoming a Patriotic Saint initially as a knight; it is only right for an online slot that has a knight as the main character to make it onto the list. That is why Wild Knight is next in the line of slots we are discussing.
Wild Knight slot is a medieval extravaganza. Brought to Castle Jackpot jousters by Barcrest, this is one of the mobile slots that is made up of 5 reels and 10 fixed paylines with the chance to grapple for the unlimited free spins. Aside from the free spins bonus feature, jousters have the chance to trigger 3 of the base game features, these being:
Jousting Reels - 2 reels will respin and this will guarantee a win.
Expanding Wilds - Wild symbols may surprise jousters by expanding when they are part of a losing spin. Knight Times - thou get to spin the Wheel of Fortune during which thou may be awarded a multiplier of thou win or one of the free spin options.
We can admit that the graphics of the Wild Knight slot are quite simplistic however, we cannot deny that the colossal potential of landing hefty wins helps us overlook the simplicity of the slot and honesty we enjoy jousting on the simple slot format. This is due to the fact rather than focusing on the graphics of the slot, we can focus on the possibility of landing either bonus features or the wins on offer.
Celestial King is another online slot brought to Castle Jackpot by Bally and features a magical theme with 5 reels and 25 paylines. Knights and maidens are in with the chance to land the Celestial King Respin feature that has the potential to produce wins of up to 50 times the stake for each scatter symbol, and if thou cover the 3 middle reels with scatters, thou will be awarded 1 of the 4 jackpots. Aside from those features, Castle Jackpot jousters have the possibility to trigger the Free Games Bonus feature where thou will be given up to a maximum of 16 free spins!
The jackpots on offer in this slot are similar to those online slots that offer the Mini, Minor or Major jackpots that jousters are able to win for stakes under £4 per spin! Hold thou horses jousters, because if thou set the wager over £4 thou could be in the chance to land the Grand jackpot that is a monstrous 5000 times thou stake!
Kingdom of Wealth
The final slot that we will be discussing in this post is Kingdom of Wealth. As in the name, this online slot is a kingdom of colossal bonus rounds! Brought to the reels of Castle Jackpot by Blueprint Gaming, Kingdom of Wealth is made up of 5 reels and 30 fixed paylines with a battlefield theme set against blue skies. Now to get into the hefty bonus features of this slot:
