Fans of the Game of Thrones HBO series can also enjoy the Game of Thrones slot game by Microgaming, and we have reviewed it to see does it capture the spirit of the series well and how good is it based purely on slot game standards.
The four Houses of Westerton, Baratheon, Lannister, Stark and Targarten, are all battling for the Iron Throne and you can now fight for your house and get your rightful reward for your struggles. If you happen to win the Iron Throne, it will be worth staggering 605,000 coins!
The game has 5 reels and 243 paylines. Bet size can range from $0.30 to $30, and you don’t get to choose the number of paylines as they’re fixed at 243. Jackpot is huge, 605,000 coins, and if you get two Throne symbols anywhere on the reels, you’ll get a random cash prize: 30, 600 or 6000 coins. Three, four or five Thrones trigger the Free Spins game.
There is actually another version of this slot game with 15 paylines, and it’s identical to this one in terms of RTP. Game of Thrones has return to player (RTP) percentage of 96.00%, and that goes for both the 243-payline and 15-payline versions. You can play both at Videoslots and choose your favorite.
The Microgaming game makers decided to use house crests for decoration, as opposed to bring in the human element by showcasing the most popular characters. As a result, the graphics are lifeless. They only ever come alive when there’s a win, and when the Wild symbol – the Game of Thrones logo – appears on the reels. The animations are good and are bringing the Game of Thrones atmosphere into this slot game. But again – no characters.
The game doesn’t pay often, which isn’t necessarily such a bad thing. It’s not annoying you with those penny wins. When you win something in Game of Thrones slot game, you win enough to justify the animation.
There is a Gamble Feature with a coin flip, and you can double your win or lose it altogether. It’s a progressive and well-animated gamble feature, with four levels: 3-eyed Raven, White Walker, Direwolf and Dragon. If you successfully guess the coin flip four times in a row, you’ll multiply your original win by 16x.
During the Free Spins Selection (shown above), you’ll get to choose one of the four houses, each giving a different number of free spins and a different multiplier. Given the nature of the slot game and the fact that it doesn’t pay often, it might be wiser to choose more free spins and a lesser multiplier.
In general, this is a decent slot game with a incredible jackpot worthy of the Iron Throne, and during normal play we’ve found the game to be quite rewarding. It plays nicely and keeps your balance positive for extended periods of time. There is a good chance you can make some money playing the Game of Thrones slot game, and have some fun while doing it, enjoying your favorite TV show atmosphere and fighting for your house!
