Drawing primarily on the mythology of Norse Gods and their thrilling hammer-wielding powers, this slot both excites and invigorates players with stone smashing graphics and big prizes. Having been released in 2010 by Microgaming, this game has had time to build a popular following, and one that is still excited to play it to this day. This electrically charged game takes place on a five-reel board with 243 pay lines. To generate wins, symbols need to land in matching configurations from left to right, starting at reel 1. The big bonus feature in this game is The Great Hall of Spins bonus; however, there is also the Wild Storm feature which also amplifies gameplay. The betting range for this slot is between 30p and £15 per spin. The maximum pay-out is a massive 8,100 times your stake, available from the Wild Storm feature or the Valkyrie free spins. Both manual and automatic spin options are available.
Graphics and Theme
Although this game is ten years old, the graphics and illustrations still hold up as engaging, even if they aren’t the crispest. From the runic board to the well-drawn symbols of the various Norse gods such as Loki and Thor, the theme hangs together well and is probably a central reason for the game’s continued popularity. The best graphic sequence is when Thor lands heavily on the base of the reel case and then shoots back up into the clouds in an electrical storm to create a wild reel. Free spin choices are also well illustrated with the four main Norse characters, each representing a different bonus spin feature. The music is an exciting combination of high tempo percussion with inspiring melodies played over the top. This is then liberally infused with the cracks of lightning and the rumble of thunder, to give the impression that the game is taking place within a storm cloud.
There is quite a variety of bonus features in this game. The first is the Wild Storm bonus. This feature is triggered at random at any time during the base game. It turns up to five of the reels completely Wild, giving you potentially 1,000x your stake.
The second feature, The Great Hall of Spins bonus, is the gateway to activating the rest of the features. It is triggered when you get 3, 4 or 5 of the bonus symbols. These correlate to 2, 20 or 200 times your stake. Next, you advance through the rest of the bonus games.
In the first game represented by the fierce Valkyrie door, you are granted ten free spins with an x5 multiplier, which can be retriggered again and again.
After you have completed the Valkyrie level four times, the Loki feature becomes available to you. In the Loki game, you get 15 free spins and the Wild Magic feature. These magic symbols land on the third reel and transform other symbols into extra Wilds. In this game, you also have the chance to win additional free spins or bonus magic symbols.
After you have triggered the bonus round ten times, it comes the turn, Odin. Within this game, you are given 20 free spins and access to the Wild Raven feature. The Raven symbols on the board can turn into multipliers. Two Ravens gives you an x6 multiplier.
The final hammer blow bonus game is hosted by the God of Thunder himself, Thor. This game is only available to you once the bonus round feature has been triggered 15 times. In Thor’s game, you are granted 25 free spins with Rolling Reels. Consecutive wins increase the multiplier, which can reach up to a 5x multiplier. Although you have to play quite some time to trigger this round, it isn’t the most rewarding.
Game How to Play
To begin playing, you must set your betting options using the tools at the bottom of the screen. These allow you to toggle the value of each coin, the amount of coins per spin, as well as the losing and winning limits for each play. Once you have established how much you are willing to bet per spin, you can then either spin the reels yourself or set up automatic spins. Matching symbols across pay lines will trigger wins.
