In September 2010, Microgaming and Warner Brothers released the result of a unique collaboration.
By combining cutting-edge slot-game technology with HD movie clips they created the most advanced - and in many ways most entertaining - slot game in the history of online gambling.

Rules of Lord of the Rings Slots
Although this is a brand new slot machine you'll recognize the icons from the book and movie trilogy. You win by combining images of Frodo, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Lady Galadriel and Arwen.
In total, Lord of the Rings Slots boasts 243 winning combinations over just five reels.
The biggest payouts, though, are awarded when you fill your reels with rings - surprise, surprise - which trigger the free-spin function and potentially pay 1,900,000 coins!
If you get three to five rings, 15 free spins begin. And during the free spin, one random reel is always wild.
The Lord of the Rings Icon is wild and substitutes for all other symbols (both in base game and during free spins) except The Ring and Eye of Sauron.
The Eye of Sauron expands on the 3rd reel making it wild.
Lord of the Rings Payout
Players who love great slot machines are drawn to this game not because of the payouts but rather the unique story-driven slot machine. But when examining the actual game, payouts are not too shabby at all.
The payout is close to 97%, which makes it a highly competitive slot machine, and with the grand 1.9 million jackpot, very few other online slot games can match Lord of The Rings.
Everybody who looks for something new and unique in online gambling should check out the Lord of the Rings slot machine.
It represents a good collaboration between online gaming and the movie world and is perhaps the best slot machine released in many years.
