There’s plenty to get your teeth into as all the heroes and villains, dragons and undead of Westeros are unleashed in the excellent Game of Thrones slot from Microgaming. The game has many different features and you can hit both bonus games and free spins on your way to the Iron Throne. But before you go to war, you first need to choose which house you want to fight for.
You can either be a Lannister, Stark, Baratheon or a Targaryan, and there are different bonuses and freespins depending on which house you’ve chosen. Targaryan is the house that gives you the most free spins if you hit the free spins feature. Here you get 18 spins, while House Stark triggers 14 free spins and Lannister gives you 10 free spins. Baratheon only gives you 8 free spins, but in return, the rewards are 5-fold compared to if you play with Targaryan, so it’s obviously worth taking into consideration. The scatter symbol is the Iron Throne itself, so it definitely pays to get a lot of those on the same spin.
Game of Thrones has magical graphics, an excellent soundtrack and a magical atmosphere that brings to mind the bleak medieval universe that we know all too well after the many hours we’ve spent shaming this excellent HBO TV series. It’s simply well done, and if you’re a true GoT fan and like the thrill of slot machines, then Game of Thrones slot is a must-have.
The Game of Thrones slot machine has 15 paylines and 243 different ways you can win. The payback percentage of the game is 96.04%.
The Narcos slot machine is not for the faint hearted!
The new Narcos slot from NetEnt is as exciting and intense as the TV series you know from Netflix. Here, cars blow up and there are several sequences in the game that involve gun duels, hard-boiled drug gangsters and American police agents from the DEA.
So take a trip back to 1970s Columbia, where Pablo Escobar ruled the drug world with a heavy hand from his headquarters in Medellin. There are guns, drug planes and plenty of money on all the rollers, and of course there’s killer action from start to finish. As I said, this is not for the faint-hearted, and the game is quite successful. If you’re used to binge-watching Narcos on Netflix, it’s a no-brainer to try the slot version.
If we’re going to exercise a little then it has to be over the game symbols, which are drawn and not the real images from Narcos. When it can’t be otherwise, it still works very well. You can easily recognise both Pablo Escobar, Javier Pena and Connie Murphy on the waltzes. The game is set in a dusty street in Columbia, which brings to mind the Wild West, and I think that’s exactly what it was.
The soundtrack to the Narcos slot is, of course, a Mariachi number, which fits very well with the South American backdrop in which the game is set. Hit one of the bonus games and you’re straight into a drive-by shooting, where your prize depends on who you take down. There’s also a free spins feature where you’ll have to shoot again, but this time it’s in front of a bar in the late evening. It’s also pretty well done.
The Narcos slot has 5 reels and 243 different paylines. The payback percentage in Narcos is 96.23%. That’s almost as good as selling drugs in Columbia!
