The first four seasons of The Game of Thrones have been nothing short of breathtaking. This awesome show which debuted in 2011 took America by storm and continues to be hugely popular. For millions of fans, their weekly dose of Game of Thrones on HBO is one more reason to live. And as if the commissioning of a fifth and sixth season is not enough good news, a Game of Thrones slot game is in the works. This online slot that is being designed by Microgaming is expected to be a big hit with Games of Thrones fans and online casino fans alike. It is highly likely to be one of the most advanced slots ever designed. The lethal combination of one of the most successful franchises on TV and a highly reputed slots company promises to deliver a pretty kick ass slot game. Microgaming have kept the details of the Game of Thrones slot under wraps. However, based on some of their previous slot machine releases, it is possible to make fairly accurate predictions on what this slot is going to look like. Prediction of featuresReel symbols are expected to include several of the main characters, so popular characters such as Tyrion Lannister, Jaime Lannister, Tywin Lannister, queen Cersei Lannister, dragon lady Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow and Petyr Baelish will feature. The symbol with the highest reward is hard to guess but in all likelihood it is going to be that of Tyrion. The logo could also be featured as the wild symbol. Bonus and Scatter symbols may include the coat of arms or one of the characters but Microgaming could surprise us with totally strange Scatter and Bonus symbols as they have done with previous versions. Other than the visuals, it is almost a given that the slot is going to include a sound track of the George R. Martin’s song “A Song of Ice and Fire” which is also the theme song of the TV franchise. Cool voice-overs from cast members and legendary quotes from the series could be thrown into the mix to add some appeal to avid Game of Thrones fans.
Game structure prediction
The greatest likelihood is that Microgaming will design the new Game of Thrones slot as one of their All Ways slots including exciting Pick and Win, Free Spins and Random Features. This could be a 243 ways to win on which you will have to play a given number of coins per spin for each of the 243 ways to win. If this is the case, your stake levels even for maximum coin value and spins will be low value. If it comes with a moderately staked approach, there will always be a high possibility of winning a huge payout if the random Wild Reel is triggered. The Dark Night Slots style progressive jackpot is not likely to be included as it proved less popular than the random Wild Reel bonus. Bonus games are a popular trend with Microgaming. Apart from the Wild Reel bonus, other bonus game features include Free Spins which will use a set of Scatter symbols to deliver free spins to players. Pick and Win bonus games are likely to be multileveled where you progress through different stages once you uncover certain symbols. The use of random features would see a character symbol appear on the screen at random to award cash payouts or multiply winning combinations as was the case with the retired Lord of the Rings slot.
Possibility of mobile compatibility
While Microgaming aren’t very fond of releasing mobile slot games, they did mention that one of their 2014 New Year resolutions was to release more slot games for handheld devices. So hold your breath, if you feel that leaving your house and your slot game behind will be too hard, then there is a possibility that you could be able to Play Game of Thrones on the go. Let us just hope Microgaming honor their New Year resolutions unlike most of us.
Microgaming have not given an official release date but a realistic period would be towards the end of August and early September. Given that the northern hemisphere will just be leaving summer and its still going to be autumn in the Southern hemisphere, everyone will be keen for some indoor entertainment. If this proves to be the case, then it is not long before Game of Thrones lovers are able to play Game of Thrones on a platform of their choosing.
