Forbidden Throne slot - Free Play - Game Review
Forbidden Throne is a popular new video slot from Microgaming, one of the world’s leading software providers (known for titles including Immortal Romance, DragonZ, Jungle Jim: El Dorado, and Thunderstruck 2), and this game uses 5reels, and 40 pay-lines, a slight deviant in the 243-ways-to-win structure we’ve seen in many of Microgaming's latest titles.
Forbidden Throne offer a high-variance gaming experience, so – be warned; while you will win BIG, when the bonus is triggered, it can take a while to land the bonus, so it’s best advised for players who have at least a 100X + stake budget available.
The main feature is the Wild Reels bonus, which is triggered randomly on any spin during the base game.
In terms of technology, this works much like the Wild Desires feature in Immortal Romance (in fact, it’s identical, aside from the name difference), and you can enjoy anywhere from one, to five reels turning completely wild! Of course, if you manage to turn all five reels wild, you’re in for a HUGE payday – one that’s likely going to range into the thousands, or even tens of thousands of pounds!
There’s also a free-spins bonus, which is triggered when you land three, four, or five of the “Orb” scatter symbols anywhere in view. Land three of the scatter symbols and you’ll be awarded with 10 free-spins, while landing 4, or 5, awards you with 20, and 30 free-spins respectively.
During the free-spins, you’ll enjoy the Wild Reels bonus on EVERY spin, ensuring at least ONE reel is turned fully wild!
While it’s not possible to re-trigger the feature, it’s nice to see that it’s possible to win up to 30 free-spins initially, and if you’re lucky enough to catch the machine in a “paying-out mood”, you can easily see wins of 5,000X + during the free-spins bonus!
Forbidden Throne is, as with all Microgaming games, still not built for HTML5 web standards, although despite this, it can be played on mobile devices without downloading any additional software, and you’ll be able to enjoy the action from your Windows, Blackberry, iOS, and Android device, simply by loading the game up through your chosen online casino, and spinning away!
Pros: Fun, exciting, and offering a HUGE bonus-round feature, Forbidden Throne offers some of the highest win-potential we’ve ever see in a Microgaming slot.
Cons: It's very high-variance, so do be prepared for this.
