Game of Thrones takes after the hit television show on HBO of the same name. The show is based on novels written by George R.R. Martin that have a fantasy theme set in medieval times. Anyone who loves this TV show will certainly find much to their liking when playing this game, especially if they love fighting. And there are plenty of eager participants intent on going the distance to win, but the biggest win for players is with Lady Luck who can bring a very generous windfall if she takes a shine to you.
This game comes to us from Microgaming, who has done a really good job of recreating the whole look and feel of the TV show in terms of the medieval setting and times. This is in large part due to Microgaming getting HBO to cooperate during the game’s development. The logo of the TV show is featured on the symbols in the game so fans will certainly recognise this, along with the Iron Throne and other symbols that feature the typical images of medieval times. There are the banners depicting the four Houses featured in the show, which are Targareyan, Stark, Lannistar and Baratheon.
The soundtrack plays majestic sounding music, to the extent that it’s possible with this theme, so you’ll hear drums pounding and horns playing. Visually, the game falls somewhat short with uninspiring graphics and somewhat dull theming. We feel they could have made this slot a lot more appealing if they had put just a little more love and time into it.
Game of Thrones is a 5-reel, 15-payline game that also offers the option of 243 ways to win for players willing to bet more and have a little more excitement. The least you can bet is £0.15 on the 15 line version game and £0.30 on the 243 multi-pay line version. Of course, larger stakes are also possible, up to £6 per spin.
Symbols are stacked and that includes the wild “Game of Thrones” symbol, which sometimes covers the entire reel.
Features of the Game of Thrones slots
There are some surprises in store for players of Game of Thrones, which include stacked wilds, scatters and a chance to win free spins. In the Free Spins round, which is triggered by three or more scattered Iron Throne symbols, you can choose which of the four houses you want to be loyal to prior to making a move. Each offers a certain amount of free spins with a multiplier, which lets players have more control over the way this bonus round plays out. When you win you can double your money with the virtual flip of a coin if you want to take the risk.
When two Iron Throne symbols appear on the screen, you win a credit prize.
Game of Thrones Slot Review
For those who like to play slots and love the HBO show Game of Throne, there is every reason to think they will have a great time playing this game. And even players who may not be familiar with the hit show will appreciate the 243 pay lines, the high variance and the stacked wilds – lots of chances to win big! We did find Game of Thrones a bit lacking in the visual department. It is not that it looks bad, we just feel that Microgaming could have done a lot better if they had put just a little more effort into the production values of this slot.
