OCV's Original LOTR review

Microgaming's now retired LOTR slot game was based on the same model that drives the excellent Thunderstruck II slot and uses the same 243-payline layout (Multiway). It has a free spins bonus which as normal is triggered by 3 scatters in view and, the most exciting part for me - it features stacked wilds! In fact it goes one better than that and has an "Eye of Sauron" smbol on Reel 3 that also acts as an exanding wild. Joy! It's described as a medium variance slot with an expected payout (RTP) in the 96-97% payout range. It joins the excellent Gladiator slot in that it is themed on a feature film and contains video footage interspersed with the game play. LOTR has been a while in the making: I first saw a teaser video of the prototype back in January, but the deal with Warner Bros Digital Distribution (who act as go-between with New Line Media, the rights holders) meant the LOTR slot was always going to mean a protracted process of authorisation and licensing. The slot features film footage, sounds and graphic portrayals of the main characters along with stacked wilds and a free spins bonus. You can see more information on The Lord Of The Rings Slots dedicated microsite.

It's not the first LOTR-themed slot machine in fact. Check out the video of the Lord Of The Rings slot from WMS (below), a land-based slot machine that launched in late 2009 and bears similarities to their very cool Star Trek slot machines I've seen in Las Vegas. This version has "unlockable" bonuses - coincidentally, Microgaming's Thunderstruck 2 slot also uses this concept - and PowerSpin™ bonuses. For the record the bonus rounds are: Gandalf’s Fireworks, Garden Heist, The Prancing Pony, Arwen’s Rescue, Isildur’s Sword, The Balrog™, Galadriel's Stairway and the Uruk-hai Battle Bonus!

Like the Star Trek slot game, WMS's Lord Of The Rings has it's own chair you sit in with speakers in the headrests, but don't expect that in Microgamng's version though - being an online-only slot game, that would be quite a feat of engineering to say the least! As it happens WMS have announced that their Lord Of The Rings slots won't ever appear online as the licence was granted exclusively to Microgaming so, even though many WMS slots can now be played online at Jackpot Party casino, LOTR won't be one of them.

Anyway, below is a list of safe and popular online casinos that use Microgaming software and will have the Lord Of The Rings slot as soon as it comes out. Check out the homepage of Online Casinos Vegas for more Vegas games.
