An Action Filled Sequel with Progressive Jackpots, Features and 5,400 Ways to Win on Every Spin
When the original ‘Game of Thrones’ pokie first hit the casino floor it made quite an impact. Based on the award-winning HBO series, the original game was based around the opening season. However, as any watcher of the show will know, Game of Thrones moves on at quite a pace, where no character is ever safe. With the success of the original, there was little doubt that a sequel would be forthcoming and here it is, in ‘Game of Thrones Fire and Blood’, this new pokie based around seasons 4, 5 and 6.
Reasons to Try Your Sword Arm at Game of Thrones Fire and Blood
This new version of the game is completely different from the original in all areas, with the following features:
The first two features are played out in the base game and involve dragons. Any dragons on the reels are wild, while dragons on reels 1 and 2 will give you added extras. A dragon appearing on reel one will now pass over the reels between 1 and 3 times, adding further wilds to the reels with each pass. A dragon symbol appearing on reel 2 will see a top paying ‘Daenerys’ symbol added to the top of 2 to 4 randomly chosen columns, boosting the chances of those big wins.
This feature is activated by hitting the bonus symbol on reel 3, alongside the Watchers of the Wall symbol on reels 1 and 5. At the start of the feature you’ll choose whether to defend or attack the wall and you’ll choose a weapon. The game now changes to a series of six 3×3 mini pokies, with a new pay table. During these spins weapons can add multipliers or wilds to the reels, ensuring some impressive pays.
This feature is activated by hitting the bonus symbol on reel 3, alongside the Forge of Honor symbols on reels 1 and 5. You’ll now encounter a 6×5 reel set up and enjoy 5 free spins. Many of the symbols are simply flames, which give you no award, however you’ll also find leading characters and multipliers on these reels. The beauty of this feature is that the symbols can move horizontally to ‘forge’ the best possible win – wins are paid vertically, which is not something you see every day!
In this game you’ll win progressive jackpots with the right combinations on the reels. For the three smaller jackpot pays, you’ll need to hit two matching jackpot symbols in the bottom left and bottom right slots on the reels. For the life changing ‘Grand’ jackpot you’ll need to land matching jackpot symbols as well as the bonus symbol on reel three.
The set up of this Aristocrat designed pokie could be described as ‘throne like’, the reels having a distinctive throne-shaped 4-5-6-5-4 set up. With ‘Reel Power’ (Aristocrat’s take on the all-ways winning system) in play, this gives the opportunity for an incredible 5,400 ways to win for every single spin. As well as the wild dragons, the title symbol also acts as a wild, while Daenerys is the highest paying standard symbol in the game. She is joined by a host of characters and symbols relating to Game of Thrones.
Aristocrat have raised the bar in the design of this pokie, delivered in their ‘Flame’ cabinet with surround sound and a 55-inch double monitor with 4k display. Photo images of familiar characters appear throughout play, while big wins and features will see video imagery from the show appear. The atmospheric soundtrack completes the multi-media experience – a must play for any fans of Game of Thrones.
Game of Thrones Fire and Blood is an exciting and absorbing pokie from Aristocrat. With the unusual reel set up, those dragon wilds and the ‘Reel Power’ format, wins come thick and fast. Enter either of the two main bonus features and you’ll feel part of the show itself, while also winning big. With a life changing progressive jackpot too, get yourself fit for a long campaign.
