NetEnt has just released a pair of slots titled Berryburst and Berryburst MAX. Both slot machines are identically structured except for the pay table. One pay table gives low volatility, while the other one gives high volatility. Microgaming has issued a similar pair of Game of Thrones branded slots. In that case the two slot machines had different payline structures. One has 243 ways to win and the other has 15 paylines. The second one caters to aggressive players who like higher variances and the first one to conservative players who like lower variances. Both versions are available on desktops and mobile devices at online casinos like 32Red, All Slots and Royal Vegas.

Both versions of Game of Thrones have the same set of symbols on the reels. The high paying symbols are the emblems of four of the families embroiled in the struggle for the Iron Throne, namely Baratheon, Lannister, Stark and Targarten. The Game of Thrones logo is a stacked wild symbol. The Iron Throne is the scatter symbol. It awards payouts multiplied by the total bet and triggers the free games feature. Each House offers a set of free games and you can pick the one that suits you best. At one end the number of free spins is the maximum and the multiplier is lowest. At the other end you have the least number of free spins with the highest multiplier. The emblem of each House appears stacked in its own free games. None of the characters from the television serial appear as symbols in these slot games. The characters keep changing in the long run of the serial and may be this was the reason for their absence.

In the 15 paylines version the coin size ranges from $0.01 to $0.10 with a maximum of 10 coins per payline. The total bet is the 15 times the line bet as is usual. The maximum line payout is 1000 coins for five game logo symbols in an active payline. This version has the higher variance. In the 243 ways to win video slot, the coin size and number of coins options are similar, but the total bet is 30 times the line bet. The top payout is again awarded by five Game of Thrones logo symbols but it is only 500 coins. In the 243 ways to win format the win combinations occur more frequently and therefore the payouts have to be lower lower. This version has lower variance.
