The launch of the seventh season of Game of Thrones has once again brought fantasy themed online pokies to the limelight. Microgaming online casinos offer two versions of the Game of Thrones branded pokie. Unfortunately they use minimal content from the TV serial and are not visually enthralling. A much better choice is the recently released Forbidden Throne pokie. The art work in this online pokie is truly fantastic. You can play this game at online casinos like Casino Mate, Spin Palace and Royal Vegas.
The Forbidden Throne logo is the wild symbol. It also awards the highest line payouts. Five symbols on an active payline pay 500 times the line bet. The other thematic symbols are crystals, masks and ancient book. The low paying symbols are brightly coloured gem stones. The golden orb is the scatter symbol. In a departure from the norm, the golden orb does not award any scatter payouts. Three scatters award 10 free spins, four scatters award 20 free spins and five scatters award 30 free spins. The feature can be re-triggered.
The fantasy element in Forbidden Throne comes alive in the Wild Reels feature. In any spin at least one randomly selected reel will become wild. Each wild reel has its own symbol related to the fantasy theme. The contenders for the throne are the Queen of Ice who appears on reel 2 and the Lord of Fire who appears on reel 4. On reel 1 is the white steed of the queen. On reel 5 is the fiery eagle of the lord. On reel 3 is the mystical kingdom of Wulthor, where the forbidden throne lies. The wild reels will eclipse all the hidden symbols, except the scatter symbols. These are available to trigger the free spins.
Forbidden Throne is a fixed 40 paylines video pokie. You can wager up to 10 coins per payline with a maximum coin size if AU$2. The maximum total bet per spin is AU$800. This is more than any high roller player at Australian online casinos can hope for. Your first reaction could be that the payouts are on the lower side for a 40 paylines online pokie. But once you factor in the Wild Reels feature you will appreciate that the offering is fair. You have all the usual Microgaming functionalities in Forbidden Throne online pokie. You can put the game on auto play for up to 100 spins without manual intervention. There are a number of customisation options as well.
