A Look at the Game of Thrones Pokies from Microgaming

Publishing: December 3, 2014

Microgaming has developed an exciting range of branded pokies which are based on famous movies and television shows such as Hitman, Tomb Raider, Hellboy, Battlestar Galactica, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Tomb Raider (1 and 2), Jurassic Park and Terminator 2. On December 1st 2014, Microgaming launched two more branded pokies which are both called Game of Thrones.

One of the Game of Thrones online pokies has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin, while the other version has 5 reels and 15 winning paylines. The special symbols are the same on both versions. For example, the Wild Symbol is the Game of Thrones Logo and this can fill an entire reel (also known as a Stacked Wild Symbol). The other special symbol is the Throne Scatter Symbol. The only symbol that the Wild Symbol will not substitute is the Scatter Symbol.

Players have the option of being able to launch the Game of Thrones pokies either instantly over Microgaming’s Flash casino platform, or from Microgaming’s other non-downloadable platform which is known as Quickfire. This game can also be found in the Video Pokie section at any downloadable Microgaming casino. This download client takes just a few minutes to install onto your computer and it contains ALL of Microgaming’s pokies. The two non-downloadable platforms only contain around half as many pokies.

The main bonus feature on the Game of Thrones pokies is a Free Spins Bonus Round and this will trigger when three or more of the Scatter Symbols land in any position across any of the reels. These Scatter Symbols DO NOT have to land along any of the active paylines. Once triggered, you will be given four options to choose from.

You can select 18 Free Spins with a 2X prize Multiplier (Targaryen), 14 Free Spins with a 3X prize multiplier (Stark), 10 Free Spins with a 4X prize Multiplier (Lannister) or 8 Free Spins with a 5X prize multiplier (Baratheon). Free Spins can also retrigger when a further 3 or more Scatter Symbols show up during this Bonus Round.

Players also have the option of being able to boost their wins even further by selecting the Gamble Feature. You can journey through four Map Locations simply by calling Heads or Tails and with each correct coin flip you will double your win. A guaranteed coin prize will also be awarded each time a minimum of two Scatter Symbols land in any position across the reels.
