Based on the massively popular HBO TV Series (which itself is based on George R R Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series of books), Microgaming’s brand new Game of Thrones slot promises to be the must-play slot of the winter.
This 5-reel slot offers the player a choice of paylines, from the cheapest option of 15 paylines, or 243 ways to win.
Once you have selected how you want to play, it is very easy to become quickly immersed in this slot. It’s design, ample use of video taken from the TV show and music transport you to the fictional realm of Westeros and a place at the heart of the battle between four warring Houses.
Stacked Wilds in the base game allow you the chance to earn more winning paylines and the base game does rattle along at a good pace, however the game really comes to life when you land the scatter symbols across the reels.
Two of the scatters earns you a random cash prize, born from the fiery remains of a dragons egg, however three or more transports you to the free spins section.
Here, you can join any of the four main Houses, Lannister, Baratheon, Targaryen or Stark and when you do you’ll receive free spins and a multiplier bonus. The more free spins you opt for, the smaller the multiplier bonus and vice versa. The choice is yours.
In addition to your multiplier winnings from free spins, you can then gamble your winnings still further in the Trail Map section, where correctly predicting the toss of a coin will allow you to double your winnings, or lose them. If you are successful, you’ll uncover more of the Trail Map too.
