Who better to take on the adaptation of the world’s hottest fantasy series than Microgaming? With several big name online slot versions of popular films under its belt, the Isle of Man-based slots developer has got the know-how to deliver HBO’s award-winning series into epic slots action. It does so with serious aplomb – including the excellent Game of Thrones soundtrack rumbling on alongside our gameplay, two separate bonus features and the opportunity to choose which of the major houses we wish to fight for in the quest for the Iron Throne.
Our high-paying game symbols are designed neatly as the banners of the four main houses – Stark, Baratheon, Lannister and Targaryen. Our lower-paying symbols, Jacks through Aces, still manage to appear striking, designed in Valyrian Steel.
The Game of Thrones slot’s 243 Ways pay structure clears up any doubts about winning paylines or otherwise, requiring three matching symbols on any reel position in order to find a winner. The classic Game of Thrones soundtrack thunders our spins along superbly. Landing three Iron Throne Scatters launches the bonus game, while landing any two Scatters awards a delightful yet mysterious random cash prize.
In the bonus feature, we must choose one house to fight for. Each of the four houses grants between 8-18 free spins and between x2-x5 multipliers. Our strategy to winning the Iron Throne must be our own. But with any win we have the option to gamble it in the Gamble Trail feature. There, we are treated to clips from the series as we make our way across Westeros in search of the Iron Throne.
Microgaming pulls out all the stops with this 243 Ways online slot. With production values as high as HBO’s, it’s little wonder that this title remains one of Microgaming’s most popular releases. The various Free Spins features offer plenty of variety. When we choose to fight under the Baratheon banner and go all-out with 8 free spins and a x5 multiplier, our wins will no doubt influence our next decision when we land three Iron Throne Scatters. Perhaps the longer game played by House Targaryen – 18 free spins with x2 multiplier – will be better suited to your slots strategy.
This freshness in bonus gameplay is not only welcome, but also well-executed. Overall, Microgaming’s Game of Thrones slot hits all the right notes and is sure to last among mobile slots games fans as long as the legendary series does with fantasy lovers. If not longer.
