Forbidden Throne Slot – Review

Forbidden Throne is a 5×3 reel slot with 40 paylines, set in a mystical theme of fire and ice with Legendary Guardians Wulthor the Elven Lord of Fire and Sorconass the Queen of Ice as you the player battle your way to rule the Throne.

this slot focuses on wild reels which are present on every single spin in both the base game and the free spins round, and some high paying fire and ice symbols along with regular wilds.

this slot focuses on wild reels which are present on every single spin in both the base game and the free spins round, and some high paying fire and ice symbols along with regular wilds.

During every spin at least 1 reel will turn full wild in the base game, these are overlayed wilds meaning you can also land the scatter symbols on them that trigger the main bonus round.

On random spins the number of wild reels granted maybe be more than just 1, with 2, 3, 4 and 5 wild reels possible in a single spin, the flipside is that the regular pays are fairly low, so for the better wins you are very reliant on several wild reels and the premium symbols.

Forbidden Throne Slot – Free Spins Round

The main free spins round is triggered by landing 3 or more of the special scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, with the additional feature that these can appear over the top of any reels that have turned wild also.

A regular trigger grants 10 Free Spins, with a 5 scatter trigger giving the maximum 30 Free Spins, and of course the ability to re-trigger the bonus round too during the free spins.

During the free spins, the same Guaranteed Wild Reels mechanic is in place, but this will start with a minimum of 2 reels during the bonus round making it slightly easier to score regular wins.

Overall Thoughts

Forbidden Throne is a decent release from Microgaming, with very nice graphics and a much-improved UI for mobile players too along with an interesting theme and mechanic.

The main negatives though are the low pays in the base game, with a very heavy reliance on not only the Guaranteed Wild Reels but also the reels they land on too, you definitely need them on the first 3 reels for the pays to be significant.

The main attraction is going to be the chance of 5 full wild reels which does pay 500x stake so certainly there is some potential, in our playtests, however, our best line hit was 4 wild reels for a 100x stake (see screenshots).
