The long wait for Microgaming’s “Game of Thrones™” online slot is finally over for avid Canadian online slot gamers and fans of the HBO hit TV series, as the Isle of Man-based gaming software giant has rolled out the much-awaited title in all Microgaming powered online gaming sites. The new 243 ways-to-win, 15-payline online slot release is also available for mobile gaming in online casinos running on Microgaming’s Quickfire platform. One fan site has the game available for free play.
Microgaming CEO Roger Raatgever is quite enthusiastic about their latest release since they announced the licensing agreement for the “Game of Thrones” HBO series as early as February, and they are well aware that anticipation for the launching of the game has been growing ever since.
The 5-reel real-money betting game has a Wild substitution feature via the “Game of Thrones” logo. A Wild tile can increase one’s chances of reaping greater rewards, more so if the tiles emerge as stacked on a single reel, as those are capable of transforming regular icons into the symbols needed to complete more than one, of the ways-to-win combinations.
The outcomes of the “Game of Thrones” spinning actions promise to produce results as exciting and as astonishing as the episodes of the HBO series, since the “Iron Throne” scatter symbol unlocks the gateway to the four revered houses in the world of Westeros. Even two “Iron Throne” icons could make an outcome thrilling, once one of the two scatter symbols appearing on any reel, randomly turns into a reward-laden blazing dragon egg that pays out an additional cash prize.
Yet the best episodes are yet to come because three or more of the “Iron Thrones” can activate the Free Spin selection round. A player’s free spin adventure is all about entering the four epic noble houses of the Seven Kingdom; each of the four selections have varying quantities of free spins and multipliers that increase winnings in folds.
A “Game of Thrones™ ” slot player can choose the House of Baratheon that offers the highest win value multiplier of 5x, which a player could possibly optimize with eight (8) free spins. The House of Lannister has ten (10) free spins to offer, and a prize multiplier of 4x. Checkout the House of Stark, as it has 14 free spins in store, and awards triple (3x) the value of prizes won. The last, but definitely not the least is the House of Targaryen, offering the most number of bonus games with 18 bet-free spins and double (2x) the value of the rewards won.
The free spin round could still take an unexpected turn, but not necessarily fatal to the game of a slot player. On the contrary, it could even increase one’s chances of winning, because the “Iron Throne” scatter symbols could retrigger respins in each house. Microgaming added the Gamble Feature for those who want to make their “Game of Thrones” playing episode a cliffhanger, as this gives them a chance to double their win with a classic coin flipping “heads or tails” betting game.
