Are you a fan of the Lord of the Rings? Have you seen every movie in the series – twice? If so, WMS Gaming has the slot machine for you. In July 2010, they released LoTR slots to select casinos. While this game started out in popular gaming cities, such as Las Vegas and Atlantic City, it can now be found in establishments across the country.
WMS categorizes these slots as “Adaptive Gaming.” If you have ever played Star Trek slots you will find that this game is similar in many ways. Equipped with a padded chair and surround-sound speakers, you will feel like you are in the movie.
How to Play
According to WMS Gaming, LoTR Slots is the first game that offers: eight unlockable bonus rounds, use of “Power Spin” to better your chance of winning big, and the ability to save your progress.
What is the Power Spin feature? There are five Power Spin awards including: Bonus Booster, Scatter Spin, Win Multiplier, Random Reels Wild, and Frodo Wilds. You can collect these awards and use them at anytime to enhance your chance of winning.
This machine is a five reel, 20 payline slot game. The minimum bet per payline is $.01 and the maximum is $.05. With a 1,900,000 coin maximum jackpot you are always chasing after big money.
The eight unlockable bonus rounds include: Uruk-hai Battle Bonus, Galadriel’s Stairway, The Balrog, Isildur’s Sword, The Prancing Pony, Arwen’s Rescue, Garden Heist, and Gandalf’s Fireworks.
Bonus rounds are determined by the amount of miles earned during base game play.
Slot Machines Symbols
Reel symbols include: sword, gold ring, “The Lord of the Rings”, and of course, famous characters from the movie.
As a huge Lord of the Rings fan, I spent some time playing this game the last time I visited Harrah’s Las Vegas. The game has become so popular that I had to wait a couple of hours for a machine to open up. Don’t worry though, I spent my time playing (and winning) at Star Trek slots.
To get my feet wet and learn more about the game I opted to stick with the one cent minimum bet. Despite playing for 30 minutes I didn’t have any success in base game play. Fortunately, I did have the chance to play the Uruk-hai Battle Bonus Game and was lucky enough to win $20.
This is a game in which you need to stay at for a while to increase your winnings. Plan on spending a bit more than usual at one machine in order to rack up miles. Also, if you find this game as enjoyable as I do, save your progress. This way you can continue where you left off next time you play.
If you want to turn your wins into gold, this is the game for you!
