Without a doubt, one of the most highly anticipated online slot games to be released in recent times, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring™ is already climbing up the ladder of the most popular online slot games that can be found at online bingo giant Virgin Bingo even though it was only released this past week.

Credit goes to the people at Microgaming who managed to come into a multi-year licensing agreement with Warner Bros Digital Distribution back in 2009 to develop a series of slot machines based on the trilogy of movies directed so majestically by Peter Jackson. So two more online slot games will be released in the future based on the other two movies, The Two Towers and The Return of the King.

The Lord of the Rings is a five reel slot machine and offers slot enthusiasts 243 ways to win while spinning the reels that feature iconic symbols such as Aragon, Frodo, Saruman and the Black Riders, the LOTR logo and of course the Ring symbol. The LOTR logo is the wild symbol, the eye of Sauron is the expanding wild symbol and the Ring is the scatter symbol. When a player hits three or more Ring symbols anywhere on the five reels it immediately activates the free spins bonus game.

Also a first here, The Fellowship of the Ring utilizes Microgaming’s Cinematic Spins gaming technology that allows players to watch movie clips from the movie as a background behind the reels while spinning the reels giving an extraordinary level of exhilaration and immersion. Cinematic clips are also used when a player triggers a winning sequence or expanding wilds instead of the regular animated graphics that can be found on most slot games.

This is one online slot machine, that words do not justice to the game and pictures speak louder than words. We suggest you open up a Virgin Bingo account today and experience this fantastic online slot machine. The fable begins now.
