Microgaming Lord of the Rings 2 slot

LOTR thumbUPDATE: Microgaming are going to remove all Lord of the Rings slot from the end of May 2012. No word yet why this is happening but it must be something to do with licences, perhaps the game hasn’t been as succesful for the licensee as promised, whatever the reason it’s going away, and I won’t be shedding any tears.

Rumours have reached us of a Microgaming Battlestar Galactica slot in the offing – now that will be something! More news or rumours as we get them…


Well, not quite but it has received a long overdue fix. I get the impression that the original game was rushed – that explains the fact that hardly anyone wins and the paytable is bad. Well now they have introduced new levels, new jackpot features and a new character: Gollum which triggers random wins.

Here’s what the casinos are saying:

From the award winning movie saga from New Line Cinema, Microgaming presents an online slot game based on The Lord of the Rings™ – now updated!
Featuring Cinematic Spins™ – this game immerses you in the vivid imagery of Middle-earth as you pursue your quest to claim its riches. Activating the Random Progressive guarantees you to win one of four jackpots – Mithril™, Gold, Silver or Bronze. The game also now offers you an abundance of onscreen and free spin feature.

Might (finally) be worth playing for something other than the amazing graphics.

You can check it out at All Slots casino.



Having spent quite some time playing this new version of lord of the rings I have to say Microganming have done something really impressive – they’ve managed to make a bad slot immeasurably worse! Whoever designed this just doesn’t play slot machiones. They might spend their time watching movies but they definitely don’t understand slot players. AVOID it’s a boring badly made money pit.
