Diving into the rich seam of Nordic mythology, Ring of Odin is an exhilarating adventure through the magical world of runic tablets and reality-bending gods.

Graphics and Theme
Drawing expertly from the folklore of the Nordic people, Ring of Odin is a fun and detailed interpretation of this genre. Symbols include ravenous black wolves, golden swords and ravens. These are added to by various rune number tablets which make up the regular symbols. The background looks to be some craggy wasteland filled with cliffs and dunes. The board is a solid metal affair with inlaid gold to highlight the light refracting from the sun. Standing stoically at the peripheries of the board, are two stone statues of Odin leaning on a great axe. The music is a rallying cry of trumpets, drumbeats and stirring string instruments that put one in mind of a war movie. This track is occasionally interrupted by the various metallic sound effects of the rings landing on the board or the reels slamming into position.
Bonuses in Ring of Odin are various, with each one aimed at ramping up the intensity of the gameplay to a feverish level.
The first thing players should take note of are the Wilds. The main wild symbol appropriately is Odin himself, illustrated in the game as a long-haired, one-eyed man wearing a horned helmet. When the wildlands, it can substitute for all regular symbols bar the scatter. This helps players build wins across the board.
The scatter symbol is also important to keep an eye on. You will be keeping an eye on an eye, as Odin’s eye represents the scatter. The scatter triggers two different free spins rounds. These are the regular and multiplier free spins rounds.
In the base, game players can benefit from something called Odin’s Ring feature. This randomly appears on the reel at any time. Any symbol which falls within the ring’s limits is transformed into a chosen symbol followed by a re-spin. After this has occurred, you’ll see Odin’s ring multiply into nine rings across reels 2,3 and 4. If any of the selected symbols land in any of the nine rings, a subsequent special feature called the Draupnir Re-spin feature will be triggered. This feature can award you as many as nine re-spins. Also, the chosen symbols remain sticky until the Draupnir Re-spin feature ends.
When players land three or more scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5, this will activate the normal Ring of Odin free spins round. Initially, this feature comes with four free spins. Any additional scatter landing on the reels during the feature will grant players one extra spin.
The Odin’s Ring feature is especially good at activating the Multiplier Free Spins. If it randomly appears on the reels and catches a scatter, you will be awarded 4 Multiplier Free spins. Each time you manage to land a scatter on reels 2,3 or 4, you will benefit from a 1x multiplier. These can increase up to 9x. Any additional scatters that land during the feature will also give you an extra multiplier free spin.
