Forbidden Throne Slot Game
Any slot game featuring the word ‘Throne’ and a fantasy/historical theme will become associated with a certain rather popular TV show. Coincidence?
You be the judge of that! In fact, this game from MahiGaming has no connection with ‘Game of Thrones’, although a couple of that show’s fans may be lured in.
If they do open this online slot to play, they may just enjoy the experience despite the absence of TV show tie-ins.
This five-reel fantasy slot has some good things going for it all by itself.

Set against a gloomy, fantasy landscape, the reels are populated by ten different base symbols. These are a combination of weapons, jewels and mysterious symbols. One fantastic (and fantastical)feature of Forbidden Throne is the Wild Reels.
There are 5 different beautifully rendered full length images, one for each reel. There’s a Princess, a Prince, a magical horse, fiery eagle and a mystical castle. The good news is that at leastone of these Wild Reels will show up on every single spin, making for good winning opportunities, since they cover the entire reel.
Apart from the Wild Reels, there is a separate Forbidden Throne wild symbol which can appear anywhere on the reels randomly. Like the Wild Reels, it replaces any standard symbol. A golden crystalglobe is the scatter symbol. Three of these trigger 10 free spins, four give you 20 and five allow 30 free spins.
These globes shine through any Wild Reels so they can still be used. Free spins can be re-triggered during those bonus rounds. Unfortunately, there is no other bonus when the free spins are inplay, so no multipliers or additional wilds – they are just basic free spins based on the previous bet values.
Animated Expanded Wilds
The animated Wild Reels are probably the most impressive thing about Forbidden Throne. These come to life when they feature in one of the 40 potential winning pay-lines. With a return to playerof 96.01%, this is a fairly average slot in terms of house edge.
The graphics are beautiful and the Wild Reels are awesome, but the overall game-play lacks a little something. The fact that the bonus free spin rounds don’t offer any extra features is adisappointment. Many games are boosted by the thoughts of lucrative free spin rounds, but this game only offers standard returns in that regard.
Big Money Bets
Forbidden Throne allows for large per spin bets, so be careful when you start spinning. This can lead to some major wins if you hit wilds all the way across the reels – hence the high max coinsjackpot – but also some big potential losses too.
MahiGaming is not a big name in the gaming industry, but Forbidden Thrones looks like being its biggest hit to date. They certainly show promise here, so we look forward to future releases.Perhaps a little more invention and innovation will bring their slot games to the next level.
