Game of Thrones Slots
The Game of Thrones slot is based on the HBO series Game of Thrones which game is based on the best-selling book series by George R.R. Martin. The series has won numerous awards and nominations which has made Game of Thrones one of the most popular TV series of all time.
Visually, you’ll see the Iron Throne in the background. The graphics have a rich colour palette as it uses high definition graphics despite being released in December 2014. You’ll also hear the Game of Thrones theme song playing as you spin the reels which adds to the intensity and atmosphere.
In terms of symbols, there are A, K, Q and J royals. Then you have the banners for each of the four main Houses of Westeros. You have House Targaryen, House Stark, House Lannister and House Baratheon. The House Baratheon banner symbol is the highest paying as it pays 1, 2.66 or 8.33 x your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.
The Game of Thrones logo is the wild card which substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter. The wild symbol can appear stacked on all 5 reels. It’s worth 1.66, 3.33 or 16.66 x your stake for 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.
The only negative is that you won’t see any characters or clips from the Game of Thrones show itself. This must be down to image rights and would prove too expensive as it’s 1 of the most popular TV series ever.
Slots Details & Wager Limits
Essentially there are 2 versions of Game of Thrones Slots. A 5 reel, 15 payline version and a 5 reel, 243 payline version. In either version, you form a win by getting 3 or more matching symbols, either across 1 of the 15 paylines or on adjacent reels, both beginning from reel 1.
When it comes to stakes, the 2 versions offer varying amounts to play:
With a Quick Spin mode available, there is an Autoplay function where you can choose between 10 and 100 autospins. There are no loss or session limits. This isn’t available in the UK from late October 2021 though.
When it comes to variance, both versions are medium variance. This means wins are distributed evenly throughout the base game and bonus features. The bigger wins will come from the free spins features naturally due to the modifiers in play.
When it comes to hit frequency rates, the 243 ways to win version has a 27.07% hit rate meaning you’ll get a win in over a quarter of spins. For the 15 payline version, the hit rate is 21.71% meaning just over a fifth of spins will result in a winning outcome.
As for the max payout, this various by version and by free spins feature. The max win per spin is 20,250 x stake which can be achieved in the Baratheon Free Spins feature. Here’s a table summarising what is the max win per spin:
As you can clearly see, the 243 ways to win version is much more rewarding potentially in the base game and each of the free spins features.
Game of Thrones RTP
RTP: 95.03 or 95.07%
The Game of Thrones RTP varies for each version. For the Game of Thrones 15 payline version, it’s a 95.03% RTP. The Game of Thrones 243 ways slot has a slightly higher RTP of 95.07%. The RTP is a little low on both but this is quite standard for a branded slot.
Game of Thrones Bonus Features
Game of Thrones comes with 5 bonus features. There’s a Scatter Bonus feature where you can win a random cash prize. The other 4 are free spins features which are based on the 4 main Houses of Westeros.
Scatter Bonus feature
Firstly, there is the Scatter Bonus feature which is played when you get 2 Game of Thrones scatter symbols. It’s a good consolation for missing out on the free spins features. Anyway, this feature is simple as you win a cash prize which is a multiple of your stake.
Free Spins features
The main attraction are the 4 free spins features where you are given the opportunity to serve one of the 4 great Houses of Westeros (each house has their own free spins feature). This is triggered by landing 3+ Iron Throne scatter symbols. 3, 4 or 5 scatters will reward with 1, 20 or 200 times your total stake.
Each House offers a unique number of free spins, a unique multiplier and unique number of stacked symbols.Baratheon Free Spins feature:
Choose house Baratheon and you’ll be awarded eight Free Spins with a 5x multiplier on every winning combination. Free Spins can be retriggered.
Lannister Free Spins Feature:
Select house Lannister and you’ll get 10 Free Spins with a 4x multiplier on all winning combinations. Free Spins can be retriggered.
Stark Free Spins Feature:
Represent house Stark and you’ll play with 14 Free Spins and a 3x multiplier on winning combinations. Free Spins can be retriggered.Targaryen Free Spins Feature:
And if you serve under the house Targaryen banner, you’ll get 18 Free Spins and a 2x multiplier on winning combinations. Free Spins can be retriggered.
To be honest, you should first choose the 243 ways to win version as opposed to the less rewarding 15 payline version. The 243 ways to win has much bigger potential payouts (20,250 x stake vs 5,000 x stake).
If you’re a fan of the television series, you will absolutely love the Game of Thrones slot version. Microgaming has since released Game of Thrones Power Stacks which is graphically a lot better with characters Wildling, Tormund Giantsbane, the Night King, Sansa Stark, Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow as symbols on the reels.
- 4 free spins features
- Win up to 20,250 x stake on each Baratheon free spin
- Superb soundtrack
- No character symbols from iconic TV series
