Microgaming, a leading software provider teamed up with Warner Bros.  in 2010 to make a slot game based on the hit movie. The company was sure of the games success and announced it to have animations and effects similar to the ones in the movie.

As soon as the word was out that the game was in the making, online casino players couldn’t wait to get their hands on it. The game went live in September 2010 with the first version called the Fellowship of the Rings. The introductory clip was added in the game with some of the most memorable moments from the film. Cinematic Spins were added as a bonus for players to watch their favorite clips while the reels were spinning.

The second part was introduced one year. Gollum the Hobbit was added to the game who had the ability to appear anywhere in the game to award the players. Bonuses and other features added to the second version made the game even better.  A bonus game came up randomly allowing the players to spin and get a chance to win one out of four available jackpots.

The online slot game of the lord of the rings was removed from all Microgaming casinos. Some claimed that the removal was due to expired license agreement between the two companies. But the real reason was that the movie originally did not belong to Warner Bros. the original owners were Harper Collins and J.R.R Tolkien who had given merchandise rights to the company. A lawsuit was filed against Warner Bros. and the games have since been removed from all online casinos.
