Game of Thrones™ 243 Ways Hot New Game Review
With an insanely unpredictable ending, the Game of Thrones season 5 finale most likely shocked nations worldwide. The same thing can be said about Microgaming take on the story with the video slot game of the same name. With Jon Snow now presumed dead who will help players chase down the 243 ways of winning the game?
The game, just as the show, display a rather elegant style when it comes to design and animations. The four houses in direct competition for the throne are also boasting their colors on the reel, reaching for the jackpot.
We have the Targaryens, considered the rightful successors to the throne due to the blood lineage tied in with the Iron Throne, the coveting Lannisters always ready to stab someone in the back, the Baratheon, now with little more than one heir still alive, and of course, everyone’s favorite, the Starks, just and sincere, looking to only serve the rightful king.
The Game of Thrones seal is also the Wild which will activate quite like the intro to the TV show. This five reel, three rows, and 15 paylines that stay consistent, balances the dark and the light and rewards players that know their history. The Iron Throne is the scatter symbol which triggers the main feature of this game.
The Free Spins feature, obviously involves the four-way rivalry. While two scatters will still award a prize, the player needs three or more to activate this crazy bonus round. Once three symbols are set on the reels, the Free Spins Bonus round is triggered and you can choose your alliance out of the following:
– 8 free spins with 5X the multiplier, and 3 seals
– 14 free spins with 3X the multiplier, and 5 seals
– with 18 free spins, 2X the multiplier, and 6 seals
– 10 free spins, 4X the multiplier and 4 seals
The good part is that this feature can be re-triggered while playing it.
On the flip-side the Gamble Feature introduces a new concept of how a gamble should go. Yes, players will still have as a main goal the doubling of their wins, but this will revolve around a story. All-in-all a fun game, this Game of Thrones slot game will remind you of the story behind the game and most likely motivate you to reach for that Iron Throne prize.
