The two latest slot machines from Microgaming are both called Game of Thrones and they are both based on the popular HBO TV series of the same name. “We are incredibly excited to have signed a licensing agreement for Game of Thrones, a highly relevant and extremely popular show,” said Microgaming’s CEO Roger Raatgever back in February when this slot was originally previewed at the 2014 ICE Totally Gaming event in London’s ExCel Centre.
After such an extremely long wait, these new slots were both launched simultaneously on December 1st and they can now be found in several top rated Microgaming casinos. They should also both continue to arrive in more casinos over the next few days. One of these Game of Thrones slot machines has 5 reels and 15 winning paylines and the other one has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin. Apart from the obvious difference in the payline structure, the two slots are basically identical.
The Wild Symbols are the Game of Thrones Logos and these can appear stacked on any of the reels. Stacked Wild Symbols can stretch from the top of the reel right the way down to the bottom of the reel and when multiple Stacked Wild Symbols appear in consecutive order from the leftmost reel, the payouts can be phenomenal. Scatter Wins will also be awarded when two or more Scatter Symbols show up in any position across the reels.
If three or more Scatter Symbols show up, the main Free Spins Bonus Round will automatically trigger, but before the Free Spins can play out you get to choose one of the four different Free Spins Modes. You can choose Baratheon, Lannister, Stark or Targaryen and you can basically opt for more Free Spins with a smaller prize multiplier or you can opt for less Free Spins with a larger Multiplier.
The options include 18 Free Spins with a 2X Multiplier, 14 Free Spins with a 3X Multiplier, 10 Free Spins with a 4X Multiplier or 8 Free Spins with a 5X Multiplier. As soon as you make your pick, the Free Spins can begin. Three or more Scatter Symbols reappearing after any Free Spin will retrigger this rewarding Bonus Round.
At the end of this bonus round (and also after any line win occurs during normal play), you can try to gamble your winnings simply by clicking on the ‘Gamble’ button which should appear just above the Spin button. All you need to do is choose your side (either heads or tails) and you will receive double your money if you make a correct guess. The aim is to try and journey your way through four map locations with a gamble option at each stage.
