Norse Mythology Inspires This New Slot
Online slot developers can be inspired by many things, but myths and legends are always a rich source of ideas, and it was Norse mythology that inspired one of the latest releases from Play’n GO
. The game we are referring to is Ring of Odin
, which stars the Norse god of the same name. Odin was traditionally described as being the god in charge of Valhalla, which is an afterlife location for those who die in battle. He was usually portrayed as having one eye, with his trusty spear, Gungnir, at his side. He also had a special ring called Draupnir, which brings us back to the game at hand…
Ring of Odin Slot Format
The Ring of Odin slot has five reels, three rows and ten pay lines
. The setting is Valhalla, which is a massive and impressive hall to which those who have fallen in battle are led. The hall stands in the middle of what appears to be a barren and dusty landscape, and if you weren’t familiar with the story of Odin you might well think of it as being a rather post-apocalyptic one.
There are four minor-value symbols used in this game, and those take the form of four different runic letters which have been etched into pieces of coloured stone. Higher-value symbols include Odin’s wolves, his two black ravens, his eight-legged horse, Sleipnir, and the spear, Gungnir. The most valuable symbol of all is Odin himself, who serves as a wild as well as a paying symbol in his own right. The eye of Odin serves as a scatter.
Visually, this title is superb. Many of the symbols are brought to life with nice animated touches, especially when they help you to win a prize, but animation plays its largest role in the special features, and in those parts of the game the formidable talent of the artists involved is impossible to miss.
As far as audio is concerned, Ring of Odin has a classical soundtrack with a marching rhythm that perfectly captures the idea of the recently slain soldiers being led to Valhalla.
Odin’s Ring and Draupnir Respins
Odin’s Ring plays a central role in this game, and can appear randomly at any time when playing the main game
. When it appears, it will land on the middle row of the middle reel, and the symbol which subsequently spins into it will be selected as the chosen symbol. You will then receive one Draupnir respin.
The nine middle cells of the game will show a ring of their own, and if the chosen symbol appears in any of those rings, each occurrence will award you another respin. The nine rings will then show the chosen symbol and will stick for the respins to take place, guaranteeing you a win if you also land one or more of the same symbols (or a wild) on the first reel.
You can enjoy up to nine Draupnir respins during this part of the game
, and that would be achieved by spinning nine of the chosen symbols into the empty rings on the very first establishing respin.
Free Spins Feature
There are two Free Spins features to be enjoyed in this game, and the first is triggered by getting a scatter symbol on the first, third and fifth reels
. That will give you four free spins, but the special thing here is that Odin’s Ring will be active on all of them. Should you get more scatters on the reels, each one will award you an additional free spin.
Multiplier Free Spins Feature
The second Free Spins feature is triggered by getting a scatter symbol in Odin’s Ring. This will give you four Multiplier Free Spins. Again, you will receive four free spins, and Odin’s Ring will be active for each of them, but a multiplier will also be active throughout, and that can help to multiply your wins by up to x9.
