August 2014 is going to be a big month in the world of online pokies when Microgaming releases the very much anticipated Game of Thrones Online Pokies, based on the immensely popular HBO television series which is based on the fantasy series of books by George R.R. Martin, known as A Song of Ice and Fire. This is one online pokies game that will not only attract new players, but it’s sure to expand the reach of one of television’s most watched series. So popular is the Game of Thrones series that a 2012 survey report concluded that it was the most downloaded show to date.
The show itself deals essentially with themes of power around a set of morally ambiguous characters. Microgaming has been incredibly secretive about its production of Game of Thrones Pokies, and practically no news has been leaked except for the month of its release which will be August 2014. What can be banked on is an epic game done in the style and scope of Avalon. Further assumptions can be the inclusion of multiple features like Scatters, Free Spins, Stacked Wilds, and most likely an array of casino bonus rounds that will require a Scatter symbol to allow entry and will work in a systematic manner where progression requires multiple entries.
The game will either rely on a fixed payline structure consisting of anywhere between 25 and 50 paylines or it will use Microgaming’s redefining Ways-to Win system which will either be 243 or 1024 ways to win.
List of Possible Pokies Characters
Game of Thrones will likely merge original footage from the TV series with new Microgaming content to lend it a strong air of authenticity while also giving fans of the series and players alike something new. While it’s hard to assume which characters will feature, based on what is already known of the series, characters from each house are bound to be in the game. Thus pokies players can expect characters from houses Stark, Arynn, Targaryen, Lannister and Baratheon.
Actual characters in the online pokies game will most likely be Eddard Stark, Tayrion Lannister, Khal Drogo, Queen Cersei Baratheon, Princess Daenerys Targaryen, Lisa Arryn and a host of others. For now, all remains to be seen and will be unveiled soon enough.
