The wait is finally over. The Lord of the Rings slot game has finally gone live at all Microgaming online casinos. The expectations have been at fever pitch since the end of July 2010. They were heightened when Microgaming did not launch any new games in August but released an advisory of the imminent release of The Lord of the Rings slot game. In fact it was the first month in ages that there was no new Microgaming release.

When a product is hyped up to such an extent the apprehension of it falling below the mark is palpable. But The Lord of the Rings lives up to its expectations. This slot game is based on the first movie of the trilogy called The Fellowship of the Ring (FOTR). Do not bypass the introductory video clip. It will take you back to your favorite characters and favorite moments in the film. When the game loads it announces a new feature called Cinematic Spins. In this feature the reels fade out while they are spinning to reveal a clip from the movie across the full playing area. Play the game with the full screen enabled because it is worth it.

FOTR is an all pays online slot game or in the terminology used in the game it has 243 ways to win. There are three options for the coin size, which are $0.01, $0.02 and $0.05. Player can wager up to 20 coins per payline. The coins per spin have a multiplier of 30x. The Lord of the Rings Logo is the wild symbol and appears stacked on the reels. It does not offer payouts. The Ring is the scatter symbol. It offers scatter payouts and triggers free spins in which a random reel is turned wild. The Fire is the bonus symbol. It can appear anywhere on reel 3 and can expand to make the entire reel wild. The characters from the movie portrayed photographically are symbols on the reels. Frodo, Sauron, Galadriel and a host of others are all there. High value card icons crafted appropriately are also symbols. The maximum that can be won in FOTR is 1.9 million coins.

Audio visually FOTR is an excellent slot game. The cinematic clips have been chosen for their breathtaking beauty. The background music makes its presence felt without being overbearing. The characters are portrayed with an intensity that reflects the dramatic value of the movie. But the best are the animations when the character symbols make up the winning combinations.

Players who have seen the film or have read Tolkien's novel will find unending delight in this slot game. Those who have not will remedy that shortcoming as soon as possible. And soon players will be waiting for the release of the slot game based on the second film of the trilogy, The Two Towers. FOTR can be played at all Microgaming online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends All Slots, Platinum Play, Spin Palace, River Belle and Roxy Palace.

Fantastic game I really love it so far and can't wait for the rest of the games in this series of Lord of the Rings online casino slots games that I've been hearing about. There's no doubt that this will have a big impact on the industry. Companies like Playtech and other big competitors will really have to start stepping up their game.
