Good news for Game of Thrones fans: Microgaming has just purchased the rights to make their own Game of Thrones slot! Before the end of the year, you’ll be able to enter the world of Westeros and Essos and plunder your way to riches amidst the show’s characters in what’s sure to be one of the year’s best slots. The game is still under development, but we do have a few remarks from the Microgaming CEO about what to expect.
What to Expect from the Game of Thrones Slot
At this point, there’s no telling what Microgaming is going to do to give HBO’s Game of Thrones the slot treatment.

In the same press release, he said, “Game of Thrones has a huge global presence online, and our partnership with Microgaming will extend the show's reach into a completely new realm. We're thrilled to be working with Microgaming, a giant in its field, and we have every confidence that the show's active fan base will be very excited to find another new way to engage with the show.”
