September this year will see the release of new online slot or pokie games, which will feature very advanced technology.
Microgaming, which develops software for online casinos, has announced that the new slots will be based on The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
The first to be released will the Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Rings, slot game where players will be able to follow Frodo Baggins and his companions on their journey to Middle Earth.
Players willl be able to activate cinematic clips during bonus rounds. There will be a 5 reel slot with 243 ways to win. The maximum payout will be 90,000 credits.
Due to strict online gaming legislation in many countries, including Australia, the game will only be available to adults in countries where online gaming is permitted. However, there is nothing to stop players in any country where online gambling is not allowed, from accessing overseas online casinos through the internet.
The games should prove very popular with fans of both The Lord of the Rings books and films, especially since they are using such exciting new technology.
