Three or more *different types* of charges in the same charge group.
That is, you played the slot machine and you lost.

primary group: bend
a tertiary group: three roses
No group has more than one type of charge, so it's well clear.

Bless you for an English description. "To sinister" means facing the
viewer's RIGHT. Most people use "facing left" to mean facing the
viewer's LEFT. Which is it?
primary group: chevron
a secondary group: three boar's heads (note apostrophe, by the way)
another secondary group: a bordure
Again, no group has more than one type of charge, so it's well clear.
