Game of Thrones is a branded pokie from Microgaming that is based on the hot television show from HBO, which is popular in Australia. The television serial is set in the fictional Westeros where noble families vie for control of the Iron Throne. The awesome introductory clip takes you through the map of the area. Microgaming has released this video pokie in two formats – one with 15 paylines and the other with 243 ways to win. The 15 paylines version has higher variance.
Four of the noble houses are represented in the Game of Thrones online pokie through their emblems as high paying symbols. These show some win animations but there are no clips from the television series. The low paying symbols are the playing card icons. The overall visual appeal is ornate and dignified in keeping with the royal theme. The Game of Thrones logo is the wild symbol. It appears stacked on the reels in the base game and in the free spins. The Iron Throne, as depicted in the television serial, is the scatter symbol.
The main bonus feature in Game of Thrones online pokie is the set of free spins. Three or more Iron Throne symbols scattered on the reels trigger this feature. Each of the four houses offers a set of free spins with the emblem of the house appearing stacked. You have to choose one from them. It is essentially a choice between more free spins and a larger multiplier. Baratheon offers 8 free spins with a 5x multiplier and a three symbols stack. Lannister offers 10 free spins with a 4x multiplier and a four symbols stack. Stark offers 14 free spins with a 3x multiplier and a five symbols stack. Targaryen offers 18 free spins with a 2x multiplier and a six symbols stack. The free spins can be retriggered. The Microgaming gamble game modified as a Gamble Trail is available after each win. You have only the option to double your win through a heads or tails coin toss game. There are four locations on the map, each represented by a mythic character. You can keep staking your wins as you traverse the map and play the game up to four times or you can collect your payout at any stage. Each win releases a clip form the serial featuring the character.
