Each symbol in this game compliments the theme (as it should be) with most of them being ammunitions used on the battleground. Symbols that yields low values when you match them up include a horse, a gun, a soldier and letters A, Q, K, J with the number 10. All the letters and numbers are in ivory calligraphic symbols. The wild is the Poltava logo which replaces all symbols except the scatter, which is a golden lion head. In the base game, the horse symbol pays the most by multiplying your bet 200x when you manage to combine 5 of it. All the other symbols pay range is 75x to 150x your bet.
- Flames of War Feature: This is a free spin feature that can be activated by matching 3 golden lion heads in either one of the 3 middle reels. 3 free spins will be awarded as the lion heads stick to the reels and become sticky wilds. This feature can only be triggered once but you can get another free spin when you match another lion heads.
