Game of Thrones 15 lines slot REVIEW
Game of Thrones 15 lines ReviewGame of Thrones comes in 2 different versions, one with 15 paylines and the other with 243 paylines. This branded Microgaming slot was first released 10 december 2014, and it’s based on the famous HBO series with the same name.
The free spins feature forces you to choose loyalty to one House, and gives you different combos of free spins, multipliers and stacked symbols per choice. Any fan of the series will probably love this game, and you can read our full review below.
Game of Thrones RTP, variance & technical data
Before we take a closer look at all the fun and exciting features you’ll find on Game of Thrones slot, let’s first reveal the most crucial technical data:
RTP: 96.4 % or 95 % (depending on version)
Paylines: 15 or 243 (depending on version)
Bonus features: Scatter bonus, Free spins, Gamble trail and Wilds
Bets: 0.15 to 3.0 or 0.30 to 6.0 (depending on version)
Max wins (coins): 75 000 (15 paylines) or 121 000 (243 paylines)
96.4% RTP (for the 243 paylines version) is a bit higher than the industry average, which hovers around 96%. Return to Player (RTP) is somewhat important, cause it tells you how much you can expect a given slot to pay out in the long run. The 15 paylines version has an RTP of 95%, which is significantly lower than the average.
Another important thing to note about this game is the medium to high volatility (or variance as it’s also called). This means you can expect some fluctuations on your bankroll while playing this slot, and you need to adjust your bet level to match your budget. It also means you can expect to win some decent payouts once in a while.
Game of Thrones Review
Family and clan feuds with no end, armies of undead closing in on the wall, a winter that’s always getting worse, and let’s not forget the ever-growing dragons. We all know the world famous TV show Microgaming has based this branded slot upon, and the question is: What have they made out of it? Is it worthy to be called the official Game of Thrones slot?
We can say this much for starters, you will not find any spoilers while playing this game, and quite frankly, we did expect more featured video clips and official material. Anyway, there are two versions of this slot, and they are quite different in many ways. One has 15 paylines and the other has 243 paylines, and the max win and RTP is also quite different per version.
We have to say that we are a bit disappointed by the lack of effort from Microgaming. If you’re going to brand Game of Thrones, the result should be the definite Game of Thrones slot that would drop our jaws to the floor. This is just a standard game with some rather boring symbols, and the theme song of the series as background music. Not good enough, and it makes us wonder what NetEnt would have made out of this.
Game of Thrones bonus features
While the free spins feature is the main thing to look out for on this game, there are a couple of other features also worth mentioning.
When you land 2 Game of Thrones scatters, you will activate the scatter bonus feature. It’s nothing out of the ordinary, and it acts kind of like a consolation prize for not triggering the free spins feature (with 3 scatters). You’ll simply win a random cash prize multiplied by your stake.
Gamble Trail feature
After every win you have the opportunity to gamble your winnings. This gambling feature comes with 4 different levels, namely 3-Eyed Raven, The White Walker, The Direwolf and The Dragon. This is the only feature where you get to see authentic clips from the TV series based on which level is activated.
Game of Thrones free spins
The free spins feature is quite extensive, and you’ll have plenty of fun here. You will have to choose which one of the 4 Houses of Westeros you would like to serve. You activate the feature by landing 3 Game of Throne scatters, and each House gives you a unique combination of free spins, stacked symbols and multipliers as follows:
House Baratheon gives you 8 free spins + 5x multiplier + 3 stacked symbols
House Lannister give yous 10 free spins + 4x multiplier + 4 stacked symbols
House Stark gives you 14 free spins + 3x multiplier + 5 stacked symbols
House Targaryen gives you 18 free spins + 2x multiplier + 6 stacked symbols
The good news is that you can re-trigger this feature by landing 3 more scatters during the free spins. It’s theoretically possible to win up to 20 250 times your stake in this feature, but don’t expect that to happen too often. Most likely you will win far less than that most of the times.
Game of Thrones jackpot (max win)
The game has no jackpot, neither progressive nor local jackpot. As mentioned above, you can win quite big in the free spins feature, but it takes quite a bit of luck. Depending on which version you play, the max win is either 75 000 coins or 121 000 coins.
Game of Thrones mobile & tablet
Games of Thrones fits smoothly and seamlessly into handheld devices, and you can play on both your mobile and your tablet. Use any device you wish, cause Android, iPhone, iPad, Windows phones and even BlackBerry’s works fine with this game.
Undoubtedly, the theme music will put you right into the mood of the epic TV-series, and there are some fun bonus features on this game. We just wish they would have used more authentic material and clips, instead of limiting those things to the gambling feature.
How about a bonus game with some epic battle scenes, or at least a few dragons flying across the reels? Well, it is what it is, and I guess fans will love it either way, but we expected a little bit more from the official Game of Thrones slot.
