    Question What's with The Lord of The Rings online slot game?

    Hello

    I was wondering if there is The Lord of The Rings themed slot game to play online, so I looked for it on Google and actually found it on a couple of affiliate sites, with full reviews (features, characters etc.)

    But the thing that confused me is that wherever I found it for the free play, it didn't work - it was not available.

    Seems that there is a slot machine in land-based casinos, but also an online version. Somewhere it says it's IGT slot, somewhere WMS, somewhere even Microgaming's.

    Sources:

    http://www.slotozilla.com/free-slots/lord-rings-2 - unavailable, report this game
    http://www.thelordoftheringsslots.com/ - here even the youtube video doesn't work
    http://www.vegasslotsonline.com/igt/lotr/ - temporary unavailable
    http://casinogamesonnet.com/?game=lo...jackpot&id=198 - not available at this time

    Is it due to some copyrights or what happened?
    Does this game still exist and which software is it?

    I guess affiliates will know the answer?
    Just very curious

    Hey Jelena, I'm pretty sure that it got pulled after Tolkien's estate pitched a fit about the brand being associated with gambling. I'm not 1000% sure, but I seem to remember that being the case a few years ago.

    Thank you very much
    Does it mean that this game is now forbidden and out of use?
    Does it also apply for land-based slot machines?

    Microgaming had a LOTR slot. I believe the license for using the name ran out or something a couple of years back.

    I found some information about what happened here: http://calvinayre.com/2012/12/04/bus...randed-gamble/

    TL;DR: Warner Bros didn't have the digital rights to license the game to Microgaming in the first place.

    I'm not really sure to be honest.

    The stuff about MGS is correct. If anyone still has a review up about it for MGS they are just late to remove it. It has been gone a few years now.

    I think the license for using the name ran our, or something like that.

    All online gaming formats were pulled back in 2012, I did see 1 or 2 machines in Vegas in 2014, but these themed slot machines are like fashion.

    WMS only have the offline version now (it's listed on their site if you look).
