Renowned casino software developer Microgaming announced the release of the official Game of Thrones slot today. The Gamingslots team wasted no time in reviewing this exciting new release – read our Game of Thrones slot review here.
Game of Thrones is a 5 reel slot that can be played with 15 paylines or 243 ways-to-win and is based on the hit HBO television series that portrays the epic series of Song of Ice and Fire books written by George R.R. Martin.
Players will be presented with reels that include the emblems of House Stark, House Lannister, House Targaryen, and House Baratheon as they try to trigger winning combinations and bonus features.
The main attraction on this slot is the free spins bonus round that is triggered when players hit three or more Scatters across the reels. In this free spins bonus round, players must choose one of the four houses to determine how many free spins, multipliers, and stacked symbols they proceed into the free spins bonus round with.
This slot includes some stunning footage from the television series such as sweeping shots of Winterfell and King’s Landing. Players will also catch a glimpse of the Iron Throne, Daenerys’s dragons, the frightening white walkers, the three-eyed raven and even a dire wolf.
Microgaming are no strangers to releasing epic official slots with this year alone seeing the developer release its astonishing Terminator 2 slot and the movie-inspired Jurassic Park slot to positive receptions in the slots industry. The developer announced back at the ICE gaming conference in January 2014 that it had agreed a deal to develop the official slot for Game of Thrones.
Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever said “We revealed our licensing agreement for the Game of Thrones series in February, and anticipation for the game’s launch has been building ever since. Such is the power of the Game of Thrones brand!”
Raatgever added “With the game going live today to both Microgaming and Quickfire operators, online and on mobile, players can now enter the fantastical world of Game of Thrones with our new online slot! It’s an exciting day for us all!”
