Microgaming to Launch Game of Thrones Online Slot Machine

game-of-thrones-slotWord has it that Microgaming have secured the rights to produce their very own Game of Thrones slot machine, and their in-house designers are busy working behind the scenes and are planning on making this soon to be released online slot one of the most technically advanced slots that they have ever designed and released.

The Game of Thrones have proven to be one of the most watched television shows in the US and beyond and it is a Fantasy Drama which is currently in its fourth season and both a fifth and sixth season have also just been commissioned, so fans of the show are going to be gripped by the ongoing storyline for several years to come at the very least.

Microgaming are, as is to be expected, keeping the finer details of their Game of Thrones slot machine top secret at the moment, however looking at their previous big name slot machine releases over recent months we can make a few predictions on just what this slot is going to offer, we may be right or slightly off the mark, however as soon as more details of this new slot are released we will of course keep you updated, so make sure you keep on checking back.

Game of Thrones Slot Game Structure Predications

We think that it is a safe bet to predict that the new Game of Thrones slot is going to be designed as one of Microgaming’s All Ways slots, this could possibly be a 243 ways to win slot on which you are going to be forced to play a certain number of coins per spin to cover each of those 243 ways to win.

If Microgaming does choose to make the structure of this slot a 243 ways to win slot then one aspect of this type of slot game is that the stake levels at which you can play the slot for, even when playing maximum coin values and the maximum number of coins per spin will probably be low in value.

Having a modestly staked slot but with features such as Expanding Wild symbols or possibly a new Wild Reel based bonus game similar to the Wild Desire feature on the Immortal Romance Slot or the Wild Storm feature attached to the Thunderstruck II Slot game means that a huge winning payout is always a very real possibility when the randomly awarded Wild Reel based bonus feature is triggered.

We doubt that the Game of Thrones slot game from Microgaming is going to have any type of progressive jackpot attached to it, for this has been done before on their Dark Knight Slot game and it has been found players much prefer the randomly awarded Wild Reel Features.

Reel Symbols on the Game of Thrones Slot Games

It would be a surprise if Microgaming did not include several of the main characters from the Game of Thrones show on the slot game as reel symbols, and based on the current importance of the cast of characters we would expect to see reel symbols designed around, Tyrion Lannister, Jaime Lannister, Cersei Lannister, Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Petyr Baelish and possibly Tywin Lannister.

Which symbol is going to award the highest winning payouts could be anyone’s guess however our money is that the Tyrion Lannister will be either the jackpot paying symbol or a high valued one, maybe there will be a Game of Thrones logo symbol which will be the Wild symbol?

As for Scatter symbols and Bonus symbols on the Game of Thrones slot game maybe Microgaming will opt to use the Coat of Arms as one of these symbols or maybe one of the character symbols, we can never be too sure for Microgaming do tend to design some bizarre Scatter and Bonus symbols, but we can be more than confident that there will be Scatter symbols and Bonus symbols in play on the reels of this Game of Thrones slot game.

Game of Thrones Bonus Slot Games

As mentioned above we are expecting the Game of Thrones slot to come with plenty of base and bonus game features and one of them could be the Wild Reel based bonus game described above, however let us now make a few predictions in regards to what other bonus game features we are expecting to find attached to this new slot when it finally is released.

Free Spins

We have yet to see one of Microgaming’s major slot game releases that does not award players with a set of free spins by one method or another, and we would hope Microgaming do keep this tradition up with this new slot game, if so it will be the Scatter symbols that will be used to deliver a set of free spins to players.

It would be a great idea if they gave players the option of choosing one or more ways of playing off their awarded free spins, possible like the un-lockable free spins rounds found on the Avalon II slot or the Thunderstruck II slot.

Pick and Win

If Microgaming do opt to add one or more pick and win or even a pick and match type of bonus game onto their Game of Thrones slot let us hope it is a multi level game, whereby a player can progress though a series of different stages once they uncover certain symbols for these types of bonus games have much more winning potential than the standard pick to win or pick and match type of bonus game which just have one level to be completed.

Random Features

You will find randomly awarded base game features on several of Microgaming’s newer slot games, and if you can remember their Lord of the Rings slot game before it was retired that slot had a character symbol that would appear at random on the screen to award multipliers on base game winning combinations or randomly awarded cash payouts, and this is possibly another feature this new Game of Thrones slot game may have attached to it.
