After months of fevered anticipation, UK online slots players are finally experiencing the cinematic excellence of the new Lord of the Rings video slot; live in Microgaming-powered casinos since September. Clients of Microgaming venues would expect "The Fellowship of the Ring" to incorporate nothing less than avant garde gaming technology, but this hasn't lessened the impact of the slot's Cinematic Spins feature.
Microgaming's Latest Brain Child
This is the first time that Microgaming has integrated its freshly developed Cinematic Spins software into a new game release, and judging by the quality of the product and the positive response from players, it certainly won't be the last. The software plays official clips from the first of the LOTR films with every spin on the game's 5 reels. As a result, players are as immersed in the game as they were in the film itself.
Film Scenes for Every Win
Win sequences and expanding wilds also trigger cinema clips, rather than conventional animated graphics. The clips include:
- The deadly Ringwraiths on Weathertop
- The terrifying Balrog in the Mines of Moria
- The Uruk-hai (the super Orcs) in the forests of Middle Earth
The reels themselves contain images of the most influential LOTR characters. There are 243 ways to win and a free spins bonus round. Other features include:
- an Eye of Sauron wild symbol
- a Ring scatter symbol
- an LOTR logo wild symbol
Where to Play
The slot can be played at numerous Microgaming casinos, some of which are running LOTR-special promotions. Crazy Vegas Casino has a Quest promotion: for 4 weeks only players collect magic coins on their journey from the Shire to Mordor.
