Honoring Themes From the Iconic Series, Players Can Raise Their Own Dragon to Aid in Their Quest for the Iron Throne
SAN FRANCISCO – June 16, 2020 – Zynga Inc. (Nasdaq: ZNGA), a global leader in interactive entertainment, announced the initial release of a new feature, Dragons of Westeros, for the hit mobile game Game of Thrones Slots Casino, inspired by the acclaimed Game of Thrones television series from HBO®.This new feature begins rolling out today on the heels of the game’s one year anniversary, putting the most powerful beast from the realm into players’ hands.
In this new feature, players that have reached level 20 will receive an egg that incubates an infant dragon. Once born, players will name and feed their hatchling, growing it from hungry newborn to powerful creature, bringing fire and strength to their efforts to rule all of Westeros.
Through daily grants and by participating in quests and events, players will earn Dragon Actions. These can be used to light a fire under the egg to hatch it faster and to feed the dragon after it has emerged. Once fed, the dragon provides players with perks that increase in impact as it grows, from the Dragon Respin to an Hourly Bonus Multiplier. Players can speed their creature’s maturity by earning Dragon XP by completing quests, completing card collections and feeding their dragon. As the dragon levels up in size and strength, the rewards and benefits to the player will be more profound, and the creature will visibly change from hatchling, to juvenile, and in time, to mythic beast.
“The visual, dramatic and devastating impact of dragons to the world of Westeros was one of the most exciting, talked about, and beloved aspects of the series,” said Bernard Kim, President of Publishing at Zynga. “With the introduction of dragons, players will now be able to experience the strength, loyalty and fire of these legendary beasts, and we’re proud to continue to bring iconic touchpoints of the series to our players.”
