The Lord of the Rings Review

The Lord of the Rings slots game can be found at Microgaming casinos. Microgaming as a standard do not publish the slots house edge information of their games. However they lease their slots games out to casinos using other software, some of which do publish this information. So far we’ve only found one casino – Virgin – that has published this information for The Lord of the Rings and they list the house edge as 3.7%. When playing at any other venue, this information should be used as a guideline only as the game may be configurable.

Based on the massively successful books and movies, the Lord of the Rings slots game sees you helping Frodo and Sam and the journey to Mordor to destroy the One Ring. Along the way you’ll be helped by your friends and allies, but beware; the Eye of Sauron is always watching, searching, probing to find the ring.

This game is a 5 reel game, with 243 paylines (however if you divide the total bet by the number of coins you come up with 30 paylines which suggests that 1 coin is actually bet on a group of paylines) and you can bet up to 20 coins on each payline.

There are two bonus features when playing Lord of the Rings. The first bonus feature is activated when three or more of the ‘Ring’ scatter symbol turn up anywhere on the reels. When this happens you will be awarded 15 complimentary spins with a three times multipliers. During the complimentary spins, one reel will be chosen at random every spin to be wild.

The second bonus feature is activated randomly and when this happens Golum will appear and award you a random prize.

During regular spins, if the ‘Eye of Sauron’ symbol turns up on the third reel, the symbol will expand and make the whole reel wild.

Closing Thoughts

While being one of the most graphically impressive games we’ve ever seen – scenes from the movie actually play in the background while you play – and being based on one of the most beloved stories of all time, Microgaming really have done no service when creating Lord of the Rings. The game – when excluding the graphics – really is a very generic slots game, when it had the potential to be so much more.
