Forbidden Throne is a new game from Microgaming, which has a fantasy theme apparently, and a number of characters and creatures that you’re not going to see in real life. The game delivers 5x3 reels, has a total of 40 lines for the player, and it can deliver huge payouts in certain situations. As features, it offers scatter symbols, free spins and expanding wilds.
Betting and Prizes
You get 40 lines to play on, and you can set the wager directly to a value that you want to use. The right side of the Spin button, which is in the middle, will have the Bet button for you, which you can open up and choose a bet value. You can use a minimum bet of $0.40, or you can go to a considerably higher value.
The game can deliver fairly large prizes, but to get them you need five different expanding symbols covering the five reels of the game at the same time. The return is at least a couple of hundred times the amount you used for your bet.
Forbidden Throne Slot Features
The Mystical Wild Reels are a big part of the features offered in Forbidden Throne. You apparently can get up to five reels occupied by these, each round, and with 40 lines that get them at the same time, you’re going to get decent odds of forming combinations this way. As always, a combination of symbols will form by using both regular and wild symbols, as long as they appear from left to right. If you happen to land all five at the same time, you’re going to get a huge win from them, the biggest one possible in this game. One thing to note here is that the five characters that are used as expanding wilds are all different, so you get different images of warriors or creatures on the five columns.
Forbidden Throne has its own free spins to give you, at least 10 rounds being available if you land three or more symbols with scatter abilities. These symbols get images that resemble energy balls. A wild symbol counts as a single scatter. Once you meet the requirements for the free spins, the game lets you know that you’ve claimed the throne.
Theme & Design
The theme of Forbidden Throne has a certain fantasy inspiration to it, combined with medieval warriors. The symbols get you started with a couple of gemstones of different colors, then you have things like snowflakes or spell books, and then you get the image o the Phoenix, of a Unicorn and of warriors with swords in their hands, of beautiful women in skimpy outfits and of castles.
The design is good enough for a modern title, even with the gemstone symbols which were used in a couple of places. Its two main characters, the warrior male and the semi-naked female, are the two symbols that look best in my opinion.
It looks like an OK title from Microgaming, with some unusual features and decent graphics, definitely better than the usual video slots that they put out.
