Game of Thrones Slot Review
Winter Is Coming!
And you’ll never be far from the action with Microgaming’s slot game dedicated to the hottest show on television right now, Game of Thrones. So will you become the king of all Westeros? King of the North? Or take over the Iron Islands? Either way, you’ll be presented with a game that features reels filled with several of the house sigils. The red dragon of House Targaryen, the golden banner of House Baratheon featuring its rearing stag, the silvered direwolf of House Stark and the ferocious lion of House Lannister. All of them grace the reels, while the show’s theme music accompanies your game play.
There’s a total of five reels included in the layout, as well as three rows. Instead of having an alterable amount of lines, Microgaming have incorporated 243 different ways to win. However, players can customise the amount of the bet that they place each spin, which starts from its minimum of £0.30 and can be raised up to its maximum value of £3. Autoplay is also included to allow for a maximum of 100 subsequent spins to take place at the same level.
Naturally, the iron throne has to have some sort of position on the reels, and should two of these icons appear in any position on the reels, the player will be awarded with a random cash prize. Three or more of these will trigger the in-game freespins round. The four Houses are displayed, requiring you to choose one, which will award a specific number of freespins, a multiplier value, and an additional stacked icon.
House Baratheon allows eight freespins and a multiplier of times five, House Lannister gives 10 freespins and a multiplier of times four, House Stark offers up 14 freespins and a multiplier of times three, and House Targaryen provides 18 freespins and a double multiplier.
The game logo appears as a stacked wild in the base game and in freespins, and this substitutes for any other icon on the reels, except for the scattered iron throne, to create a win.
It stands to reason that a developer was going to make a slot game based on Game of Thrones, and Microgaming has provided it some justice in their release. It’s entertaining. It’s intriguing. And who can resist that theme song?
