Recently I covered Microgaming homage to “The Vikings” with their Thunderstruck 2 slots game and the Norse mythology that the game revolves around.
Today I'm bringing you “Hall Of Gods” which is Net Entertainments take on the same theme and if after reading this review you are not impressed then maybe you should play the tried and tested Starburst Slots, maybe that's more your thing.
Hall Of Gods is a progressive jackpot slot that has not one but three possible jackpot payouts and therein lies its huge appeal. The graphics may not have the “wow” factor usually associated with Net Entertainment games but the rest of the gameplay more than makes up for it and this a great slots game.
This game belongs to the NetEnt progressive jackpot network which means that every spin from every player contributes a small amount to the overall jackpot.
Hall Of Gods has 5 reels and 20 pay lines and you can play from 20p per spin to £50 per spin (when you play all pay lines) and it has 3 bonus features “Thor's Hammer” which I'll explain in a moment. You can win one of three impressive jackpots and the scatter and wild symbols also give you a chance to score a big win.
The mythological characters that play out the game are are Odin, Thor and Idun who appear on the reels whilst a suspenseful drumming sound plays in the background until it breaks out into a tuneful solo when you score a win.
There are ten symbols that appear on the reels and the expanding wild feature is the Serpent that appears on reels 2,3 and 4. get three Serpents on a pay line and you'll score a big win as well as awake the beast rising out of the water and wailing to full effect.
The symbols are split into high and low values with the Gods themselves making up the high value ones. Idun. Loki, Freya, Thor and Odin are the high ranked symbols.
The scatter symbol is two of Odin's Ravens sitting on a grave set against a full moon and they trigger the free spins bonus round when they appear. Three scatter symbols = ten 10 free spins, four=15 and five scatter symbols will give you a very generous 20 free spins.
All of the wins generated during the free spins bonus round are trebled as they come with a 3x multiplier and if you happen to uncover more of Odin's ravens you'll trigger more free spins.
The Pick Win feature is triggered when you hit three or more mighty Thor icons and with the help of his hammer you smash your way through the protecting shields. The three jackpot levels are displayed across the top of the screen and if you manage to break all three shields you'll win one of the jackpots.
Match three shields and you'll win the mega jackpot of which there have been 11 wins recorded with one lucky winner walking away with 7.8 million Euros.
