It’s time to mix slot games with a fantasy world with ‘Forbidden Throne’ from Microgaming. Travel back to a time when unicorns were jumping here, there and everywhere but there was also some fiery Phoenix out to ruin everyone’s day. Hopefully your day won’t be ruined because the big wins can come along in this slot with two separate bonus features.
‘Forbidden Throne’ has a great look to it and in the background, we can see a mountainous kingdom where one minute it seems to be freezing cold and the next rather warm. A bit like Clacton in the summer, well partly anyway. This is a five-reel game and on its three rows of symbols there are a total of 40 pay-lines. Those 40 pay-lines are a fixed amount so no need to be spending any time working out how many lines to activate on each spin of the reels. You do need to decide just how much you are going to be staking when those reels start spinning. The minimum cost of playing this slot is just 0.40 and the maximum a total of 200. A wide range and there shouldn’t be too many problems finding a level that you can play at without having any financial worries.
Symbols in the game include some rather legendary characters in this fantasy world. There’s the guardians, Wulthor the Elven Lord of Fire and Sorconass who is the Queen of Ice. Also, there’s also a winged helmet, a ruby, amulets, crowns, a snowflake design, an ancient spell book and a sorceress (that sounds so much posher than a witch, doesn’t it?). The lower value symbols are five coloured gems in yellow, blue, green, orange and red.
The wild symbol in ‘Forbidden Throne’ is the game’s logo and it’s one you will want to see plenty of. That’s because of its wonderful ability to substitute for other symbols in the game. If you’re one short of a win or one off that top win, the wild can help you here. It’s not able to substitute for the glowing orb which is the scatter symbol and helps get you into the bonus rounds.
The Wild Reels feature can prove to be profitable as it greatly increases your chances of getting some winning combinations. This pops up randomly and between one and five wild reels can appear. Just one reel turning completely wild is enough to increase your chances of getting winning combinations. If all five come along then you win 500x your stake. It’s also possible to see this in the Free Spins feature so keep an eye out for this.
You do have to be a bit patient to get the big wins in this game. Triggering the free spins round is the key here as that’s where the lucrative opportunities are if your luck is in. If you can get three or more of the scatter symbols, that triggers the free spins round. How many free spins you receive depends on how many scatter symbols trigger the round. Three will see you playing with ten free spins, four takes that up to 20 and if it’s five, then you end up having 30 free spins to try and do some damage with. It’s also possible to re-trigger the free spins an unlimited number of times and remember there’s the chance of those Wild Reels coming along again.
With two bonus features in this slot, it’s important that you find out as much about the game as you can before playing it for real. That’s achieved in two easy ways, you can have some free games and see for nothing exactly what the Wild Reels feature and free spins are all about. Also make sure you look through the paytable as that has all the information you need regarding how much you can win and the rules of the game.
This is a great game to play and the good news is that there are other slots out there that have a similar kind of gameplay. For example, you could play ‘Royal Frog’ from Quickspin which also has a total of 40 pay-lines. It has a free spins round and it also includes some stacked wild symbols. Also try your luck on the Konami slot ‘Full Moon Diamond’, another 40 pay-line game. That slot includes a wild that can be seen on all the reels but unlike ‘Forbidden Throne’ there’s no wild reels available in the free spins game.
If you love a certain popular HBO series, then this will be right up your street. It has a great look to it and that adds to the enjoyment of playing the game. You will find that the big wins come along in the free spins round. If you can keep re-triggering the free spins (and get a large amount to play with in the first place) then you will have plenty of reasons to celebrate. This is definitely worth giving a spin but you will need to be patient.
