Viking Gods: Thor & Loki is coming from Playson and it is a release that was programmed for October 2017. The game’s theme is obviously borrowing from the mythology of the Scandinavian region and both Thor and Loki have been figuring among the major characters of several superhero films released in the past decade.
This game will only have 15 active lines for each round, spinning 5 reels with them active. There are certain cool features and achievements present inside, which can influence the average RTP quite a bit. The regular payouts will reach maximum values of $1,500. Among the slot’s features, I would mention multiple wilds, stacked symbols which trigger two types of free spins and a scatter that can trigger a Viking Gods bonus game.
Betting and Prizes
The full range of the bets which are possible in Viking Gods is $0.15 to $90. As usual, this Playson slot machine only allows you to decide what the total bet is worth, not how much the individual lines are receiving. Those will be 15 fixed lines, so automatically the line bet is decided when you choose the total amount. It will vary between $0.01 and $6 for each line.
The best rewards of the game can reach $900 if you’re using the regular spins, or $1,500 if you’re on the paytable of the free spins. The average RTP can vary as well, depending on whether you get the achievements or not. The regular gameplay RTP is at 95.30%, while the RTP that includes the achievements will be at 96.88%.
Viking Gods: Thor & Loki Features
A couple of different wild symbols are going to be shown on the reels, including here the W logo, the Ice Wolf and the Ice Wraith. Such symbols are used as substitutes in combination with any other symbols, helping them create new winning combinations whenever it is possible. The wilds can even pay directly, if they’re forming combinations, offering rewards of up to $900.
The two gods that the title mentions are Thor and Loki. These are both stacked symbols where the gods are shown. Triggering their unique free spins modes is a matter of getting such a stacked symbol to appear on the full 3rd reel. The outcome from this appearance will depend on the number of positions which it occupies. Getting a single position occupied will result in 2 wilds being placed on the leftmost reels. With two bonus symbol positions visible, you get 4 wilds on the reels. Finally, if you have a full stack visible you are going to get the free spins.
Thor has 10 free spins to give you. You have guaranteed World Serpent Wilds that will show up each round. These will grow in time, from the 1x1 size, all the way up to 3x3. Each time that you get a Blue Crystal, one step will be added to the progress bar. This is the way to increase the size of the wild, all the way to the Colossal Wild version.
As for Loki, he also has 10 free spins, but his extra feature consists of sticky wilds that show up and remain on the reels until the lock is broken. The lock breaks when a wild contributes to a winning combination. The progress bar increases the power of the sticky wild, allowing it to work for up to three locks.
Theme & Design
Playson has always done a great job when creating slot machines and you can see it in Viking Gods: Thor & Loki as well. There are runes among the symbols, plus images of wolves, wraiths, the two gods, wraith bracelets, wolf necklaces and pendants.
I really enjoyed the game, especially because it looks so good, but the features have done a lot to help make it fun as well.
