September 2 has arrived and with it one of the biggest days in the history of online video slots - the launch of Lord of the Rings and Microgaming's Cinematic Spins technology.
Based on the popular cinematic trilogy, all the major characters from the movies feature on the reels, including Frodo, Aragorn, Saruman and the Black Riders.
And using the Cinematic Spins technology, the slot includes background footage from the three films - The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King.
The clips even continue to be played while the reels are spinning, during win sequences and when wilds are hit. This gives the game a much more modern feel than the animated graphics that users of video slots are more used to.
And in more good news for those wanting to try out the new slot, Gaming Club Casino - one of the first sites to host the game - is offering 45 Free Spins to all players who want to play the game. The casino is also continuing with its regular $100 bonus promotion for new customers.
To claim the bonus, simply download Gaming Club's online casino software, set up an account and deposit $100 to claim your 100 percent match offer. It's that easy!
