Microgaming have been doing what they are known for as of late, and that is quietly releasing slot after slot of excellent quality.
Often released without the fanfare that can come with releases from the likes of NetEnt and Playtech, Microgaming slots are, almost without exception, able to compete with the very best from their competitors.
One of the newest offerings from the popular software provider is Forbidden Throne, a fantasy themed slot that looks to capitalise on the immense popularity of the Game of Thrones franchise.
About the slot
The fantasy theme is strong with this one, with various suitable symbols including characters and gemstones on the reels. The graphics and animations here are reminiscent of fantasy computer games, which is something that is likely to appeal to fans of the genre.
A five-reel slot with forty fixed paylines, Forbidden Throne combines imagery and soundtrack to create an excellent slot, from an aesthetic perspective.
The quality doesn’t drop when you get to the features here either.
Wild reels are a nice touch, with every spin, at least one reel will go completely wild, which can lead to some nice wins, scatter symbols can also overlay these symbols, so the free spins round can still be triggered.
If you do trigger that feature, you will receive 10, 20, or 30 free spins for three, four, and five scatter symbols (glowing orbs) respectively.
You won’t find additional multipliers or anything here, which is a shame, but the fact that you can trigger more free spins by landing scatter symbols during the feature does a lot to counteract this.
This is an exceptional looking slot, which some exciting features, and is a clear sign that Microgaming is returning to form after some slots did not receive the usual heights of acclaim a while back.
