The HBO smash hit TV Series Game of Thrones, based on the George R R Martin series of books A Song of Ice and Fire, is coming back but this time in a new form. Microgaming has developed a fabulous new slot based on the popular TV show and as you would expect, this epic new slot ticks all the right boxes.
“We plan on taking all of the features of the small screen fantasy epic to create a masterpiece of a slot,” stated Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever recently, so how does their new offering shape up?
One of the central themes of the book is that of choice. Do you support the Houses of Lannister, Baratheon, Stark or Targaryen? Well in the slot the first choice you have is whether you opt to play 15 paylines (minimum price 0.15 per spin) or the maximum 243 Ways to Win (at 0.30 per spin minimum).
With Stacked Wilds, there’s always a good chance of landing a winning line in the base game, but it is when you hit the Scatter symbols that things get interesting. Two scatter symbols earn you a random cash prize, but land three or more across the reels and you are now faced with a more symbolic choice.
Now you select which house you serve from the four main House’s in the story. Each has an increasing number of free spins, but with a decreasing multiplier, from 8 free spins with a 5x multiplier for the House of Baratheon, to 18 free Spins with a 2x multiplier for the House of Targaryen.
Once you have used your free spins, you can then gamble your winnings using the Trail Map feature, which gives you the chance to flip a coin, correctly predict the outcome and you double your winnings and move further around the map.
