There are 2 versions of this Microgaming slot that is themed on the smash hit HBO TV series of the same name. There’s a 15 payline and a 243 Ways to Win slot machine (which fits into an existing range that includes newer games like the Gung Pow Slot and more established ones such as Immortal Romance).
Which version should you play? We’d say the 15 payline version- you get more options on betting levels, the one line payout is bigger, and the 15 payline version is (alledgedly) more volatile (ie it’s a higher variance slot). What this means, is that you’ll see less frequent wins, but they’ probably be bigger. Ultimately, it’s your choice, and will depend on the kind of bankroll that yuo are betting with. A higher volatility slot requires deeper pockets to ride out any lean periods.
Land 3 or more scatter symbols (the throne symbol) and you will head in to the free spins feature. Here you’ll need to pick your house- choose more free spins with a lower multiplier or lass free spins with a higher win multiplier. Each house banner corresponds to 8 Free spins x5 (Baratheon), 10 Free Spins x4 (Lannister ), 14 free spins x3 (Stark) or 18 Free Spins x2 (Targaryen ). Special symbols may appear stacked during the free spins, and you can retrigger the free spins while you are still in the free spins game (one of our favourite features of a slot as this can really accelerate your wins if you hit a purple patch).
There’s also a gamble feature. Toss an ancient Braavosi coin to see if you win the gamble. If you predict heads or tails correctly, you’ll head along a trail map featuring a host of beasts that roam wild in Westeros and Essos.
In addition, the Game of Thrones Slot Machine can serve up stacked wilds across all reels and if you just miss the free spins round and just get 2 scatter symbolsanywhere on the reels, a dragon’s egg will appear, with a prize. If you like fantasy an sci-fi, you might also want to try the Terminator slot- another 243 Ways slot from Microgaming.
Of the 2 versions, we’d go for the 15 Payline version. We have to admit to being a bit disappointed with the graphics. With this kind of subject matter, Microgaming could have gone to town and come out with some really vibrant graphics. They are OK (especially in the free psins round), but we can’t help but feel that they lost the trick a bit in the base game, where the graphics seem a little static when you compare it to some of their other games like the Jurassic Park slot.
Still, worth a go, and Games of Thrones fans will love it.
