A Shield of Swords? Fantastical warriors? A fiery kingdom? you might think this is the intro for the next Game of Thrones season, but it's actually a few tidbits about Nine Realms. As you can see, it's one of the more innovative and story-driven pokies to grace the shores of Fair Go... and we couldn't be happier!

Seriously, Nine Realms is an adventurous pokie with an engaging narrative that will have you on the edge of your seat. But it's not all about the story, Nine Realms also boasts some legendary features, such as Free Games, a Mystical Zone and a magical Gatekeeper Portal.

But we don't want to ruin the surprise. Nine Realms is a game that must be spun to be believed. So suit up, grab your shield and sharpen your pokie playing skills. Nine Realms and its many bonus rounds and base game specials are waiting for you today! Just don't forget to grab your new game bonus before you go.


Lord of the Rings is probably the most famous fantasy action series known to man and woman, but believe us when we say that LOTR ain't got nothing (and we mean NOTHING) on Nine Realms.

This is a game that's all about the journey, with players taking control of one of four fantasy warriors as they attempt to claim the coveted Shield of Swords. Along the way you'll experience a growing gameboard, morphing symbols, stacking symbols, free games, increased paylines and much, much more.

In addition, there's a 2,500-coin top award, very high volatility gameplay that's perfect for those seeking the big win and 243-paylines to play on (at the beginning).

But really, this game is all about the innovative new bonus rounds and base game features, so don't just give it a quick spin. Sit down, get comfy and really immerse yourself in Nine Realms – it'll pay you back with non-stop action and epic fun!


Most online pokies have a few good symbols that players can look forward to matching up, but Nine Realms takes it to the next level with a whopping array of symbols.

There are the usual low-value symbols that'll pop onto the reels with regularity (boooo). But then there's a bunch of symbols that have the potential to seriously increase your winnings (hoorah!). Here's a quick rundown of what you can expect:

    • Scatter - Free Games
    • Wild - No wild or substitute
    • Stacking symbol - Warrior
    • Morphing symbol - Helmet

Bonus rounds

Like everything else in this pokie, Nine Realms doesn't half-bake its bonus rounds.

It delivers them with the full-frontal force of a charging army. Not only is there an epic Free Games bonus round, but there are also a couple of other bonus features that'll keep you on your toes, such as the Mystical Zone and the Gatekeeper Portal. Let's go!

Mystical Zone

One of the best things about this bonus round is that it can be activated during both the base game and the Free Games round.

Called the Mystical Zone, it's a special feature that's played out on reel 3 during the base game whereby reel 3 is transformed into the Mystical Zone. However, during the Free Games round, it expands to include the middle positions of reels 3, 4 and 5.

To activate this feature, you'll need to land a Warrior symbol on the entire Mystical Zone. When you do, all Warrior symbols on the reels will morph into the triggering Warrior symbol and payouts are awarded based on the total number of Warrior symbols on the board.

Gatekeeper Portal

If you thought the Mystical Zone is cooler than a warlock's staff, wait till you get a load of Gatekeeper Portal.

This feature is randomly triggered during the base game and the Free Games round, BUT... it can only be activated on a non-winning spin. The Gatekeeper Portal is made up of Helmet symbols and it appears in random locations on the reels. Once it's been triggered, all Helmets will morph into matching Warrior symbols. All wins are then evaluated and paid out accordingly.

And that's not all! If you manage to land a Warrior symbol on the entire Gatekeeper Portal, the Warriors will morph into the triggering Warrior symbol and award additional payouts.

Better yet, the Gatekeeper Portal changes depending on whether it's triggered during a base game or a free game. For example, during the base game, it can be either 3x2 or 5x2. During the Free Games round though it can be 4x2, 5x2 or 5x3.

There are the usual low-value symbols that'll pop onto the reels with regularity (boooo). But then there's a bunch of symbols that have the potential to seriously increase your winnings (hoorah!). Here's a quick rundown of what you can expect:

Free Games

The fun doesn't stop with these two bonus rounds, because like all legendary pokies... Nine Realms has free spins too! That's right, when the Free Games scatter symbols simultaneously appear on reels 3, 4 and 5, you'll trigger the Free Games feature and score 7 free spins.

And trust us when we say this... it's worth the wait. Not only does the gameboard increase from a standard 5x3 to an epic 7x5, giving you a total of 78,125 possible ways to win, but the Mystical Zone also expands to include the three middle positions of reels 3, 4 and 5.

Free Games are played at the bet amount of the triggering spin, and the bet cannot be changed. The Free Games feature ends once there are no more Free Games remaining or when the maximum payout is achieved, which means this round cannot be retriggered. Sorry!
