The concept of a knight coming in shining armor and saving the day hasn’t gone out of style even though we are in the 21st century. Ruby Play is one of the smaller gaming developers who yesterday brought us a journey to the Savannas in “Savage Lion“ and now has decided to bring back the knight in shining armor theme in its latest slot called ‘Gallantry’.
This game uses the design and graphics that were popular in the 90s in classic adventure games. Gallantry is slightly cartoonish in nature but does provide players with an interesting theme and good gameplay.
When players start this game up, they will immediately recognise the theme. For people who love nostalgia, this game has it in spades. Besides the graphics, players will be pleasant surprised with the music and the sound effects. While the music might sound a bit dated, it is pretty appropriate for the setting.
The game has five reels and three rows. Players will have 30 paylines to play with. That is a bit more than the usual 20 paylines for games like these but it does give players more chances of winning. As for symbols, there are the usual playing card symbols for the low-value symbols. The more valuable symbols are the thematic ones. The most valuable of them will offer 90 times the player’s stake if there are five of them on a payline.
The basic game is not very exciting! Fortunately, the bonuses are nice enough that they spice the game up. Players will be able to activate these features thanks to some of the special symbols in the game.
For one, there are scatter symbols. These scatter symbols allow players to get free spins. Players have to score them and the more scatters they score, the more free spins they can get. Besides that bonus, players will be able to score 100 times their normal bet. The maximum amount of spins players can get is 25 spins.
Players can also win even more spins if they are lucky during their free spins. The free spins also upgrade one of the reels. This turns the entire reel into shields, which are the wilds for this game.
Players who score six shields will trigger the Winner’s Fortune feature, players will be granted three spins. During these spins, shields will stay in place. At the end of three spins, the prizes on the shields will be rewarded. Included among them are four jackpots: mini, minor, major and grand. All of them will give players big prizes. But the biggest will give 5000 times their stake.
Overall, this is a fun little game that has a 96.29 RTP!
