Game of Thrones Slot from MicroGaming
‘Game of Thrones’ started out as a very popular book series by George R. R. Martin, but it was the TV series that really led to the explosion of the franchise, possibly the most popular series to hit our screens this century. The Game of Thrones slot from MicroGaming is the latest newcomer to the franchise, so popular already that this is the game that casino sites are advertising on their home pages – so let’s take a look!
In this review I start by looking at the basic structure of the ‘Game of Thrones’ slot, focusing on how you’ll win and the options you’ll find when playing. I move onto examine the bonus features and the extras within the game. Next up I look at the mobile devices where you’ll be able to play the game and how. I finish with a summary of the game and recommend a casino where you’ll be able to enjoy the game.
The Game of Thrones – Game Basics
When you start this slot you’ll have a choice to make – do you play on the 15 win line or the 243 ways to win version of the game. The obvious difference between the two being that in the first version you’ll have to land the symbols on the actual win lines from left to right, whereas the 243 ways to win version means that as long as the symbols land anywhere on consecutive reels from left to right you are guaranteed a win.
When you start the game you’ll notice immediately that it has a very polished and professional feel and fans of the series will immediately connect with it. You’ll be able to choose the amount you’ll play for in both versions of the game, although the number of win lines is set. You’ll also be able to choose to auto play – this being customizable. On the reels the game features a number of standard symbols including the badges relating to the Baratheon, Lannister, Stark and Targaryen houses, as well as delightfully gilded J, Q, K and A symbols. Each of these symbols will pay by landing three consecutively on the reels from left to right.
Additionally, you’ll also find a ‘wild’ symbol – the Game of Thrones symbol. This is stacked which will lead to extra wins – this is also the most profitable symbol in the game if landing 3, 4 or 5 on consecutive reels.
Game of Thrones – Bonus Features
The main bonus feature is activated when landing the scatter symbol across 3 or more of the reels. You’ll be taken to a superb animation sequence before choosing one of the following 4 options:
Baratheon – You’ll have 8 free spins with a 5x Multiplier. The Baratheon symbol will be stacked x3.
Lannister – You’ll have 10 free spins with a 4x Multiplier, the Lannister symbol will be stacked x4.
Stark – You’ll have 14 free spins with a 3x Multiplier, the Stark symbol will be stacked x5.
Targaryen – You’ll have 18 free spins with a 2x Multiplier, the Targaryen symbol will be stacked x6.
During the free spins round they can be retriggered.
After every win you’ll also have the ‘gamble’ option where you can double your winning amount. This is based around the toss of an ancient coin – choose correctly and you’ll progress through 4 locations on a map, for a maximum of 4 gambles.
Game of Thrones Device Compatibility
You’ll be able to play the Game of Thrones slot (both versions) via the MicroGaming responsive software known as 'Viper'. This automatically adjusts to your device's screen size and controls (touch or mouse). This slot is also available on the traditional download and will work in your browser on a PC or Laptop too. MicroGaming are leading the field when it comes to mobile slot games, I recommend you check out their games.
The Game of Thrones Slot – Summary
This is a fantastic looking game, made even more so by the impressive animations when a number of symbols line up to give a win. The bonus features are both original and enjoyable – the fact that you are given a choice is a particularly good idea. In some ways I feel they could have gone a little further with the slot, with a ‘game’ style feature away from the main slot (the gamble feature does this to a point) maybe based around one of the characters(if they are not killed off!). However, this is a small criticism of a very impressive slot.
