Game of Thrones — New Slot Machine by Microgaming

New Slot MachineMicrogaming has recently released its long-awaited game announced at the beginning of this year, the video slot machine based on the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. Most players are excited about the new – quite lucrative – video slot machine, others consider it a failed attempt to create a truly epic video slot, as Microgaming has promised when the announcement was made. Whichever the case, here is a short review of the Game of Thrones video slot machines by Microgaming. 

I say «machines» because Microgaming has released two Game of Thrones slot machines (you can play also in nytt casino —, which are basically the same, yet completely different. Both have five reels and three rows, but one of them has 15 pay lines, while the other one has 243 ways to win. The 15 pay line version is more expensive to play: with a coin value of $0. 01 to $1 and the possibility to play up to 10 coins per line the maximum bet you can place on it is $150, and it can eat through your money in no time, while the 243 lines version has a maximum bet of $30, offering you longer playtime for the same amount, but also more possible winning combinations on the screen. 

Other than their cost and win lines, the two slot machines are the same – in their design, in theirvideo slot soundtrack, and in all other aspects. The symbols on the reels are the usual poker-inspired ones, plus the highest paying ones that are the crests of the great Houses of Westeros – Baratheon, Lannister, Stark and Targaryen. The Iron Throne acts as a scatter symbol in the game – when three of them land on the screen the free spins will be triggered (a different one to choose for supporters of every House). Each Scatter landing on the screen will offer the players a bonus amount – two Scatters will reward a random amount, while three or more will pay up to $300. The Game of Thrones logo acts as the wild symbol in the game, stacked on all reels. Players have a chance to multiply their winnings after each successful spin through the game’s «Gamble» feature – oddly this is the one with the most cutscenes from the series. Players can choose Heads or Tails in multiple levels, each one with a different creature from the series. 

The Game of Thrones video slot might not have delivered on all the promises made by Microgaming at the beginning of the year, but it has surely become a great game to play (especially for Game of Thrones fans). It can be very profitable in free spins, even if it’s not that munificent in normal gameplay. It can be tried for free at the Europalace Casino Germany, or played for real money at any Microgaming-powered best online casino out there.
