Medieval legends are good material for online slots. The most popular by far is Robin Hood, but there are a few slots based on the tale of Lady Godiva. Of these the best is Lady Godiva from Pragmatic Play. It is live at online casinos like InterCasino.

Lady Godiva was married to the Count of Mercia. The Count was a tyrant and levied oppressive taxes on his subjects. In a year of particularly low crop yield, Lady Godiva appealed repeatedly to her husband to free the people from the taxes. In a bid to put an end to the entreaties, he said he would grant her request if she would ride naked on a horse through the streets of the town. The gutsy lady took him on and rode unclad through the streets of Coventry. In deference to her, all the people remained indoors and shut their windows. However, the town tailor Thomas was unable to observed restraint and peeped through the windows as Godiva rode by. He was ostracised by the community and voyeurs since then have been named as Peeping Toms.

The Pragmatic Play slot game is set in the standard 5x3 reels structure with 20 fixed paylines. The reels cover the entire screen leaving no room for the customary background. The advantage is that the ornately designed symbols, that appear stacked on the reels, are bigger and more visually appealing. The game logo is the wild symbol and awards the highest line payouts. The high paying symbols are taken from the story and include the compassionate Lady Godiva, the cruel Count, Peeping Tom looking remorseful and the pure white steed that Lady Godiva rode. When these symbols appear in winning combinations they expand to full-length figures. The low paying symbols are the royal playing card icons in bright colours and intricate patterns.

The Fleur de Lis emblem is the scatter symbol. When three or more of these symbols appear anywhere on the reels, the free spins feature is triggered. You get to pick one out of four options given. The first option is 30 free spins with a 1x payout multiplier. Then the number of free spins decreases and the payout multiplier increases. The subsequent options are 15 free spins with 2x multiplier, 10 free spins with 3x multiplier and 5 free spins with 6x multiplier. If the free spins are retriggered you get to play the chosen option again.
