Game of Thrones RTP, Variance & Technical Specs

Before we get into all of the fun and exciting elements of the Game of Thrones slot, let’s go through the technical specifications:

  • RTP: 96.4% or 95% (depending on the version).
  • Volatility/Variance: Medium-High
  • Layout: 5×3
  • Pay lines: 15 or 243 (depending on the version)
  • Bonus features: Scatter Bonus, Free Spins, Gamble Trail and Wilds.
  • Stakes: 0.15 to 3.0 or 0.30 to 6.0 (depending on version)
  • Max. Wins (coins): 75 000 (15 pay lines) or 121 000 (243 pay lines).

The 96.4 percent RTP (for the 243 pay line variant) is slightly higher than the 96 percent industry average. Return to Player (RTP) is significant since it indicates how much you may expect from a particular slot over time. The RTP for the 15-pay line variant is 95 percent, which is below average.

Another significant feature of this game is it’s moderate to the high volatility (or variance, as it is also called). This implies that while playing this slot, you should expect some changes in your bankroll and will need to alter your bet level to fit your budget. It also means that you might expect some reasonable payments from time to time.

Game of Thrones Main Features

Family and clan feuds without end, armies of undead pressing against the Wall, a winter that keeps getting worse, and let’s not forget the ever-growing dragons.

We all know the world-famous Microgaming TV show that this branded slot is based on, and the question is: what have they made of it? Is it worthy of being called an official Game of Thrones slot?

This much we can say for starters, you won’t find any spoilers when playing this game and, to be honest we were expecting more featured video clips and official footage. Anyway, there are two versions of this slot that are very different in many ways. One has 15 pay lines and the other has 243 pay lines, and the maximum win and RTP are also very different depending on the version.

Microgaming Slot

We have to say that we are a little disappointed by Microgaming’s lack of effort. If you want to brand Game of Thrones, the result should be the definitive Game of Thrones slot that makes our jaws drop to the floor. This is just a standard game with some rather boring symbols and the series’ theme song as background music. Not good enough and we wonder what NetEnt would have made of it.

Game of Thrones Bonus Features

While the free spins feature is the most significant aspect of this game, there are a few additional aspects to note.

Scatter Bonus

The scatter extra feature is activated when you land two Game of Thrones scatters. It’s nothing out of the norm and serves as a reward for missing out on the free spins feature (with 3 scatters). Simply said, you earn a cash award that is multiplied by your stake.

Gamble Trail Feature

You have the opportunity to wager your winnings after each win. The 3-Eyed Raven, The White Walker, The Direwolf, and The Dragon are the four stages of this gamble feature. This is the only function that displays actual TV series clips based on the level selected.

Game of Thrones Free Spins

The free spins feature is fairly broad, and you’ll have a great time playing it. You must decide which of Westeros’ four houses you will serve. The feature is triggered by landing three Game of Thrones scatter symbols, and each house delivers a different combination of free spins, stacked symbols, and multipliers, as follows:

  • House Baratheon gives you 8 free spins + 5x multiplier + 3 stacked symbols
  • House Lannister gives you 10 free spins + 4x multiplier + 4 stacked symbols
  • House Stark gives you 14 free spins + 3x multiplier + 5 stacked symbols
  • House Targaryen gives you 18 free spins + 2x multiplier + 6 stacked symbols.

The good news is that if you land three additional scatters during the free spins, you can retrigger the feature. It is theoretically possible to win 20-250 times your stake in this feature, but don’t hold your breath. In most circumstances, you will most likely win much less.

Game of Thrones Jackpot

The game has a jackpot, but it is neither progressive nor local. As previously said, the free spins feature can be very lucrative, but it does require some luck. The maximum win is either 75,000 coins or 121,000 coins, depending on the version you play.

Benefits

  • Free spins feature with exciting options
  • Lovely background music
  • In the gamble feature, there are authentic video clips.
