Microgaming’s Game of Thrones is a five reel slot game that comes with 15 paylines and 243 ways to win. While the music and graphic themes are closely based from the series, fans will be disappointed with the lack of characters. I was eager to see my favorite characters such as Tyrion Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen, but as I spun and spun, all I saw was the usual K, Q, J, and A symbols, the Iron Throne, the logo, and the family crest of each house.
The game tries to redeem itself through game play but fails to meet the mark. There’s a feature called the Gamble Trail, which comes out if you get to line-up a certain combination, you can choose to gamble a specific amount and go on a journey to win bonuses. For each successful journey, you’ll get to see a few animations of creatures from the TV series. However, that’s about it in terms of trying to wow you with effects.
This game is a letdown if you’re a fan of the series, and based on my experience playing, it doesn’t even provide much of a payout.
