Lannister, Baratheon, Targaryen or Stark? Which house do you serve? Noble fans of the hugely popular HBO TV series Game of Thrones have mulled that question over for some time, but in Microgaming’s popular new slot, you’ll get to state your allegiance.
This brand new 5×3 reel slot offers players a choice of 15 paylines, or 243 ways to win. Once you’ve selected how you want to play, then the game kicks off in earnest.
The base game vividly brings to life Westeros, with its earthy, rural hues, fantastic soundtrack and clever use of video throughout the slot, Microgaming have captured the essence of the mystical lands superbly well in their new creation.
Stacked Wilds in the base game help you achieve winning paylines. However for the really big wins, you need to land the scatter symbols across the reels.
Two scatters unlocks a random cash prize, but land three or more and you’ll earn yourself a chance at some big money in the Free Spins section.
Here you get to state your allegiance to any of the four Houses of the epic. Each offers its own rewards in a mixture of free spins and multipliers. The more free spins you opt for, the smaller the bonus, or you can opt for a bigger multiplier bonus but fewer free spins. The choice is yours.
Once you have accrued your rewards in the free spins section, you then head to the Trail Map. Here you can elect to gamble any winnings you have accrued on the toss of a coin. If you win, then you double your winnings at a stroke and you also uncover more of the Trail Map.
This beautifully realised slot captures the essence of George R R Martin’s epic tale and transports the player into the heart of the battle.
