Microgaming’s Game of Thrones online slots games is one of the most highly anticipated titles of the year. The game was announced months ago, and players have been left waiting for details ever since.
Now, Microgaming has quietly released a teaser trailer of the upcoming slots game, and we’re here to give you a sneak peek.
If we’re honest, we’re not particularly blown away by the graphics. The only symbols are the crests for each house and the iron throne. You could argue that the design is understated or that it suits the theme of the show – but, we were pretty underwhelmed.
Since the show is quite popular, we imagine that there was some legal reason that they could not use pictures of the characters or locations. Still, we’re not too thrilled with the look.
As soon as the game loads, the first thing you do is pick your format. You can choose to play with a 15 payline format or a 243 Ways format. In the 15 payline game, you have to wager on each payline and there are only 15 ways to win. It seems to be the more affordable but less volatile version.
In the 243 Ways format, you get 243 ways to win without having to wager on each payline individually – but it could get expensive. This is something that we’ve never seen in a slots game before, and it is a great way to include all players regardless of their budget.
To trigger the bonus game, three iron thrones must appear on the reels. The player can then choose from the following options:
- Baratheon: 8 free spins with a 5x multiplier and a 3-symbol stack
- Lannister: 10 free spins with a 4x multiplier and a 4-symbol stack
- Stark: 14 free spins with a 3x multiplier and a 5-symbol stack
- Targaryen: 18 free spins with a 2x multiplier and a 6-symbol stack
The stacked symbols are exactly what they sound like. They appear one after another on a single reel. The more symbols that are stacked, the better your chances of hitting a winning combination.
For all of the hype that has surrounded this game, we’re a little bit disappointed in the look of it. We were expecting something a lot grander and more interesting. However, we are pleased with the innovative gameplay that the new Game of Thrones slots game brings to the table.
