Game of Thrones – Microgaming
Game of Thrones was one of the most successful TV shows of all time, perhaps even the greatest. Adapted from George R.R. Martin’s best-selling novels, the series follows the power struggles of four great houses, namely, Stark, Lannister, Targaryen, and Baratheon. As the official TV series slot, Game of Thrones by Microgaming pay homage to these four great houses by featuring them as the main symbols, and by creating special features attached to each one. The graphics faithfully represent the show’s iconic imagery, and the gameplay is magnetic. If you’re a fan of the show, you’re going to love being transported back to Westeros while you try your luck at becoming as rich as the Lannister’s.
Game of Thrones slot features a 5 reel/3 row grid with 243 ways to win. There is also a 5×3/15 payline version of the game, but we’re going to concentrate on the 243 ways to win version because the potential rewards are more lucrative. On the reels, you’ll find the low-paying symbols represented by the J, Q, K, and A playing cards, and the higher paying symbols represented by the banners of the four houses, as well as the Game of Thrones logo for the Wild, and the Iron Throne for the Scatter.
The Game of Thrones slot games is a medium volatility slot with an RTP rate of 95.07%. As far as RTP rates go, anything over and above 95% is worth your while. A medium volatility game is said to be a game that pays out at a steady rate, which means the wins should come quite regularly, but you’ll have to commit to some solid gameplay if you want to be in with a chance of hitting a serious jackpot.
Microgaming have chosen to keep the special features to a minimum with this game. That’s not to say that the features aren’t worth playing for, it just means that the setup is not complicated. You’ll find a useful Stacked Wild feature, along with four potentially lucrative free spins bonus rounds as well as a separate Scatter bonus.
The Stacked Wild feature allows Wilds (Game of Thrones logo) to land in stacks on any of the reels. When this happens, all of the Wilds will transform to match other symbols on the reels to help you make a winning combination of symbols. Stacked Wilds can land during the base game and during the free spins bonus rounds.
The Scatter Bonus is a consolation prize. If you miss out on triggering the free spins round by only landing two Scatters, you’ll a prize. This prize will take the form of a cash prize equal to your bet + a multiplier. The multiplier can be as large as x50, which, let’s face it, is not too shabby for a consolation prize.
Free Spins Bonus Rounds
The big wins come during the free spins bonus rounds. There are four different bonus rounds, each represented by one of the four Houses of Westeros. Each of the Houses offer a specific number of free spins, a multiplier, and stacked symbols, and you can pick whichever House suits your mood. There are pros and cons associated with each House, but they all offer winning opportunities.
- House Baratheon (Represented by a Stag): 8 free spins. x5 multiplier. 3 stacked symbols.
- House Lannister (Represented by a Lion): 10 free spins. x4 multiplier. 4 stacked symbols.
- House Stark (Represented by a Wolf): 14 free spins. X3 multiplier. 5stacked symbols.
- House Targaryen (Represented by a Dragon): 18 free spins. x2 multiplier. 6 stacked symbols.
Although the game is simple in its premise, it’s undeniably grand. The graphics depict the banners of each House of Westeros and adorned on each is the symbol of the house. Are you a stag, a lion, a wolf, or a dragon? Do you wish to forget about season eight and reminisce about the glory days of season one to five? Or perhaps you feel that Daenerys got her just desserts? However you feel about the ending of Game of Thrones, this game will bring back memories of all of those epic moments that made this show so mesmerising. And if you’re lucky, you could win yourself a hefty jackpot to spend on GoT memorabilia. The only negative about this game is the fact that the characters themselves are not featured on the reels. We would have liked to see a brooding Jon Snow, a devilish Cersei Lannister, and a regal Daenerys Targaryen leading the bonus rounds. That being said, we give this game a score of 5/5.
