GIBRALTAR, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- 32Red Casino today announced it has launched the eagerly awaited five reel cinematic online slot game, The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring™, to its online casino.  The game, which promises to be the biggest launch this year, offers players, over 243 ways to win, the famous The Lord of the Rings™ characters and is one of the most graphically rich, innovative and exciting online slot game to date. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring™ online slot is only available to adults in countries where online gaming is permitted.

In the online slot game, players follow the Hobbit "Frodo Baggins" as he sets out to ensure the destruction of the Dark Lord Sauron.  The five reel online slot has unrivalled game graphics and includes beloved characters from the film, such as Frodo, Aragorn, Saruman and the deadly Black Riders; along with some of the film's iconic footage, featuring Ringwraiths during the attack at Weathertop, Balrog in the Mines of Moria, and Uruk-hai in the woods of Middle-earth.

The online slot game has been created by Microgaming, the world's largest provider of online gaming software.  The Lord of the Rings™ game will be powered by Cinematic Spins™ - a software program that allows movie clips to act as moving backgrounds behind the reels during spins. This offers players an unprecedented level of excitement and immersion. Win sequences and expanding wilds also make use of cinematic clips, instead of traditional animated graphics.
