Game of Thrones from Microgaming: Slot Review - the excellent slot based on the hit TV series

When you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die! Are you ready to claim the throne?

This game is based on the hugely successful TV series and book called Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. Being a fan of both, I was very eager to dive in and see if this game does it justice.

It does not disappoint let me tell you, it recreates it wonderfully and fans of the show and even newcomers will find themselves immersed in this game in no time.

It is a 5 reel slot game and with up to 243 paylines, there is the potential to win really big here!

Special Features

The first feature that I noticed while playing this game was the iconic Game of Thrones logo.
This acts as a wild symbol and substitute for all other symbols, which increases your chance of winning paylines. They can also be stacked meaning that they can cover all the spaces on a reel to further your chances of a big win!

The infamous “Iron Throne” which all the houses are vying for in this game is the Scatter Symbol. If 2 of these symbols land across the reels then you will be awarded a random bonus amount.

Believe it or not but there is also a Four Free Spins bonus feature in this game. It is triggered when you land 3 or more Iron Throne symbols on the reels. You then get to choose one House of Westeros and there is ample opportunity for landing some big wins. For instance, House Stark will give you 14 free spins with a nice 3X multiplier whereas House Lannister will give you 10 free spins with an even better multiplier of 4X. Additional free spins landed in this game are added to the remaining free spins you have, so lots of replay value here!

The last feature I picked up on was “Gamble”. Here you can decide to increase your wins by clicking on “Gamble” after a recent win. There are 4 stages in this feature and it is a heads or tails scenario. If you select the correct symbol then your winnings are doubled and you will go forward to the next stage but if you lose then the feature ends abruptly.

Theme and Graphics

The first thing that impressed me about this game was the original HBO score playing in the background. It is haunting and beautiful and puts you into the Game of Thrones zone right away.

The graphics are superb and the House symbols of each family are faithfully recreated with extraordinary detail. You can tell just from playing this game that a lot of work went into it to make it as close to the TV show and book as possible.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has a staggering 243 paylines, a reasonable RTP of 95% and a jackpot of 1,500 coins.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.
