Return to Westeros with Game of Thrones Power Stacks
tue 24 aug 2021
The eighth and final season of the hugely popular Game of Thrones television series might have concluded a couple of years ago, but the world of Westeros is still very much alive in the imagination of its fans. It is likely to remain that way for some time, too, because the series of best-selling George R. R. Martin novels on which the TV series was based is still a couple of volumes short of completion and HBO already filming the prequel, House of the Dragon. Fortunately, fans of the epic fantasy can now return to Westeros thanks to a new licensed slot called Game of Thrones Power Stacks
Format and Presentation
Developed by Slingshot Studios for Microgaming
, Game of Thrones Power Stacks is a five-reel video slot with four rows. Every spin of the reels will give you 40 ways to win, and the top prize on offer is worth a hefty 25,000 times your bet.
The game takes place against a variety of backgrounds that portray different settings for different stages. Some backgrounds are quite abstract but still manage to provide a very good sense of atmosphere, as you'll see when you play. The higher-value symbols on the reels are the characters of Tormund Giantsbane, the Night King, Sansa Stark, Daenerys Targaryen, and Jon Snow, all of whom appear as played in the television series. A Game of Thrones Power Stacks logo is a paying wild, and the iron throne is a paying scatter.
This isn't the first online slot to be based on the Game of Thrones television show, but it is certainly one of the best. It features plenty of animated sequences and audio from the show, including the main soundtrack during the special features. In short, if you enjoyed (or still enjoy) watching Game of Thrones on TV, you'll love playing Game of Throne Power Stacks.
Power Stacks Feature
This game is named after the fact that it features the trademarked Power Stacks mechanic. The Power Stacks mechanic will randomly select one symbol to be stacked on all five reels for the coming spin. Wild and scatter symbols can't be stacked via this mechanism, but any other symbol can, which means you could have plenty of high-value symbols stacked on any given spin.
Coin symbols can also land on any spin, and when they do, they will bear cash values. Get six coins on the reels at the same time, and you will trigger a Link&Win feature. The coins that triggered the feature will stick in place, and all other symbols will be removed from the reels for three respins. Any additional coin that land will also be held in place, and the number of remaining respins will reset to three.
Special coins relating to a Bronze, Silver, and Gold jackpot can appear in this part of the game. When you run out of respins, you'll earn the value of the coins collected, including any of those jackpots. If you manage to fill the screen with coins, you'll win a Valyrian jackpot worth 2,500 times your stake.
Free Spins Feature
Land three or more scatter symbols on the reels, and you'll trigger a Free Spins feature. This will give you 15 free spins, and all wins achieved during this part of the game will be doubled in value. You'll also get to enjoy the main soundtrack as you play, as we mentioned earlier.
The Link&Win feature can also be triggered from within the Free Spins feature, which makes things even more exciting. Any Link&Win prizes you win will also be doubled in value, so there's plenty to get excited about when you see three or more iron thrones land on the screen.
Pledge Your Allegiance!
'We're thrilled to add another Game of Thrones slot to our legendary offering with the inclusion of the new Power Stacks,' said Andrew Booth, who is Director of Games at Microgaming. 'Combine that with the Link&Win feature and atmospheric sounds, players are sure to pledge their allegiance to House Stark, House Targaryen, House Lannister or House Greyjoy.'
Richard Vermaak, who is Head of Studio at Slingshot Studios, is equally enthusiastic about this game. 'As a fan of this iconic brand, I'm very excited for players to experience Game of Thrones Power Stacks,' he said. 'I hope this slot fills a hole for those missing each nail-biting episode to see what happens to their favourite characters, with Drogon making an appearance when a big win occurs!'
