Launch of The Lord of the Rings Online Slot Machine Imminent
This entry was posted on Wednesday, September 1st, 2010
We’re all very excited here about the imminent release of The Lord of the Rings slot machine, set to be out Tomorrow (2nd September). Why I hear you ask? Well, as well as being based on one of the best film trilogies from the past decade (17 Oscars, including Best Picture & 30 Nominations), it is also going to be the first online slot to use Microgaming’s new feature – Cinematic Spins.
The Cinematic Spins feature means that clips from the movies can be used as the background. According to the press release from Microgaming “Win sequences and expanding wilds also use cinematic clips, instead of traditional animated graphics. The slots feature famous scenes from the film including Ringwraiths during the attack at Weathertop, Balrog in the Mines of Moria, and Uruk-hai in the woods of Middle-earth.” So there.
What this means, is that the graphics on this slot should be pretty cool (we’ve got some screenshots on this page), and as you can see, you can also expect to see the actual characters from the film on the reels, rather than just a caricature or graphic.
From what we can tell so far, The Lord of the Rings online slot is going to be similar to Thunderstruck II in that there are no traditional paylines, rather it has the same “243 ways to win” which effectively means that all possible paylines are active when you play. LOTR will also have an expanding wild, which looks set to be the “Eye of Sauron”.
Well, we can’t wait, and there’s not long to go now 🙂
