Take a trip Westeros and enter a world of dragons and warring families in Microgaming's Game of Thrones branded slot.
HBO’s Game of Thrones is into its eighth season, due to hit TV screens in 2019.
But even if you haven’t binge-watched the dramatic tales of murder, intrigue, war, family battles, and lots of blood, you might have come across Microgaming’s branded slot.
Winter is most definitely coming.
Microgaming’s history of big branded slots
Microgaming are no stranger to branded slot tie-ins.
Terminator 2, Jurassic Park, and The Dark Knight have been hugely popular games with players. In many cases, these official tie-ups have featured actual video footage from the source films.
While the Game of Thrones slot retains the iconic theme tune, there is little in the way of the imagery or characters from the show.
Despite the lack of blood and gore – the show featured enough of that – this game is all about gameplay and bonuses.
Game of Thrones slot 15 paylines v 243 ways to win
There are actually two versions of Game of Thrones.
One is a basic 15-payline version, while the second utilises Microgaming’s familiar 243-ways-to-win format. The main difference here is the maximum bets across both games and the adjustment in RTP.
A 243-ways-to-win slot lets the player bank wins simply by landing matching symbols on adjacent reels. With so many possibilities to win, the range of payouts is therefore a little flatter in the 243-ways version.
The player needs at least three matching symbols on adjacent reels to win a cash prize. The royal symbols of J, Q, K, and A are the low-paying icons. These pay up to 2x your total bet, achieved by lining up five aces.
The emblems of the four major families are the high-paying symbols in Game of Thrones. In the 243-ways-to-win form of the slot, the family shields pay from around one-third your total bet up to 8x.
Trigger four free spins rounds
Look out for the Game of Thrones symbol in the game. This acts as the wild symbol and will replace any regular icon on the reels. Wilds can also appear stacked. The Gamble feature – triggered after any winning spin – can also help players double their wins.
What sets Game of Thrones apart is the free spins round. There are actually four possible rounds to pick from, each based on one of the feuding families in Game of Thrones.
Three or more scattered Iron Throne scatters will activate the feature.
Now you have to make a decision on the number of spins you want, plus a win multiplier. Picking Baratheon free spins will earn you eight free spins with a 5x multiplier on every win. Pick Lannister and you will get 10 free spins with a smaller 4x multiplier. You can enjoy 14 free spins and a 3x multiplier with Stark spins, while Targaryen earns you 18 free games and a 2x multiplier.
In addition to free spins and multipliers, the special family shields will appear stacked during the bonus feature.
