Game of Thrones Pokie Game
With many of the world’s leading game developers being on something of a spree when it comes to branded content, it is no surprise to see an official game based on smash hit TV show Game of Thrones hitting our screens. Just as every major movie release usually receives an official video game to go along with it, big shows and movies can generally rely on getting their own branded Pokie. The main difference between the two is that the Pokies are generally passable at worst rather than cheap cash-ins! Game of Thrones actually received two different games which are functionally identical but are presented separately in both fifteen line and 243 ways versions. No matter what you choose, the full review below has you covered with all the important parts!
Game Type: Video Pokie
Win Lines: 243 ways to win or 15 win lines
Special Features: A choice of free spins plus wilds and scatters
Top Prize: 60,000 coins
Whether you opt for fifteen lines or the full 243 ways to win, betting on Game of Thrones remains largely consistent. As any Microgaming fan will know, choosing a number of coins and then attributing a value to them is the name of the game and your decisions will reflect in what each of the prizes are worth. Both games also offer the conventional choice between auto play and manual spins so you can get as involved as you like, safe in the knowledge that even automatic spins will pause if you hit a feature round.
In addition to true feature rounds, Game of Thrones also offers one of the best wild cards around. The fact that the Game of Thrones logo is not only wild but also comes in stacks makes us favour the 243 ways version of the game, although we wouldn’t want to influence your own choice on this basis!
More important than the wild, even in its stacked form, is the Throne. Two or more of them in view will award a random cash prize based on your stake, while three or more will trigger cash and the bonus round. Here, you get a choice of which round to play based on which of the four houses you wish to align yourself with. Supporters of Baratheon will receive eight spins with a four times multiplier, plus all of the house’s symbols stacked on the reels. Lannister fans will grab ten spins with a four times multiplier and, once again, the relevant house logos come in stacks.
More stacked symbols are offered when it comes to Stark and Targaryen, with players also receiving either fourteen spins with a three times multiplier or eighteen spins with a two times multiplier respectively.
Game Culture’s Opinion
The official Game of Thrones video pokie perhaps doesn’t go as far as some players would expect when it comes to incorporating the subject matter, with video clips at a premium outside the gamble round. Nevertheless, a choice between two different formats and even more options when it comes to bonus features make it a top notch game and, like the books, it leaves plenty of room for a sequel.
