Follow on the shoulder of Frodo as he traverses middle earth as you go in search of riches represented by various hobbits, wizards, weapons and of course the mystical ring. In September 2011 the revamped version of the popular The Lord of the Rings (LOTR) Slot Game was released by online gaming software experts, Microgaming. Unlike the first version, this version came with a progressive jackpot which is randomly triggered by a bonus wheel spin.

What makes this game truly amazing is the use of original footage from the blockbuster film, giving players a unique visceral experience which makes you feel as if though you’re a character in the film yourself. From Gandalf’s mysterious musings to Aragorn’s gripping monologues, each time you hit one of the 243 Pay lines on this 5 reel slot, striking visuals and sounds appear to announce your win. The game has many bonus features and Gollum is a character who should be prized – he every so often appears form the abyss to dish out random prizes or features which can see you enjoy multiple free spins and bonus rounds.

Other key symbols to look out for, which will hand you some sort of benefit:

  • The Lord of the Rings Wild Symbol
  • Eye of Sauron Symbol
  • Ring Scatter Symbol

 
Microgaming have also given an indication that they’re likely to release 2 more versions of The Lord of the Rings, to tie in with the rest of the trilogy. For now you’ll be able to play The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the ring at Go Wild Casino, Platinum Play Casino and All Slots Casino, along with others in the Microgaming portfolio.

With online casinos becoming evermore innovative with incorporating striking themes and superior quality visuals, your gaming experience will continue to take on new proportions. It’s no longer just a matter of standard reels spinning, but realizing that online gambling is a huge form of home entertainment, there are now several options on the market which draw on blockbuster films and comics to deliver the highest of quality to the market.

Over the coming weeks we’ll be looking at other games worth taking a closer look at. Goodbye for now, and happy gaming!
