When two worlds collide, fireworks are always likely and that is the basic premise behind Microgaming’s latest offering the Forbidden Throne slot. Witness the battle on the reels between the two Legendary Guardians Wulthor the Elven Lord of Fire and Sorconass the Queen of Ice as they do battle to claim the Forbidden throne. Let’s take a look at what this slot has to offer.
There’s more than a passing resemblance to the Warlords Crystals of Power slot in Forbidden Throne, but to be fair, just having two main characters does help the slot structure considerably. The graphics are beautifully done, with a mountainous grey backdrop behind the reels and a mix of gems and higher value symbols related to the two main Guardians on the reels.
The fact that many of the higher value symbols are stacked does help land multiple paylines, which can help increase the size of the cumulative win beyond that of the jackpot, but for the most part wins are generally smaller in value and this is definitely a more medium to lower variance slot.
The Wild Reel bonus does help you land considerably more wins than you would otherwise get in the game and this is without doubt the best feature of the slot, especially when you land three or more of the reels triggered Wild. Then it is possible to land some of the very big wins although it has to be said that these wins are not triggered particularly frequently.
inally, the Free Spins round is where you can do some real damage to the slot in terms of winning cash. The fact that free spins are not capped and you can retrigger the bonus any number of times does add huge appeal to the bonus and with up to 30 free spins available initially, this does add a great deal of appeal to the slot.
