The wombat says: What’s all this Ragnarok business I hear you ask? Well, it’s a legend in Norse mythology that details the destruction of the whole world, which is said to follow on from a bloodthirsty and epic battle between a bunch of nasty monsters and Loki, Odin and Thor. Phew! All in all a pretty serious business, wouldn’t you say? We already have some classic Nordic games on the site- Thunderstruck2 and the original Thunderstruck game, for example. Will the Gods be on your side to guide you to epic wins on the Ragnarok slot? Let’s find out.
Look and Feel
A misty forest makes up the backdrop to these Scandinavian reels and we’ll be honest, the atmosphere is bit on the gloomy side- it’s no Dino Might slot! Still, what do you expect? The end of the world is nigh! The background music is a rousing choral requiem befitting for a spot of Armageddon, while the 3D graphics are sharp and slick and the monsters in the bonus rounds are genuinely scary. The drawings are pretty impressive- they are up there with the Dolphin Quest slot machine, but a whole lot darker!
Ragnarok Game Play
Ragnarok is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 25 pay-lines. 3 bearded Viking blokes (probably the Gods) plus what looks like Valhalla floating mid air represent the high value symbols while standard playing cards; 9, 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values – all done up in a fancy Norse-inspired font.
The Yggdrasil (the Tree Of Life in Norse mythology) is the game’s Scatter symbol which will trigger 3 (yes 3!) different bonuses, and the Wild symbol in Ragnarok slot is what looks like a gold gravestone. Either way, it will substitute for all other symbols on the reels to give you more winning combinations.
Bonus Features and Runes
The mysterious red runes are the key to the multilevel bonus features and the more you collect, the bigger and better the payouts! Basically, they will unlock the bonus battles for you.
You earn the runes randomly after base game spins plus an additional 1 is earned each time a bonus is triggered.
All of the extra rounds are triggered by landing 3x or more of the Yggdrasil Scatter symbols and depending on how many runes you have collected you’ll enter into battle with a scary badass bad guy:
Level 1 (Thor vs Jor) Thor Feature – This is the most basic feature and you can trigger it with just 15 runes. You’ll receive 10 free spins with all wins multiplied by 2x. Nice.
Level 2 (Freya vs Surtr)
With between 15 and 30 runes you’ll be given the choice between playing either:
-Thor Feature – 15 free spins with all wins multiplied by 3x.
-Freyr Feature – 3 picks from 5 targets. Each reveals a cash prize or a 5x multiplier.
Level 3 (Odin vs Fenrir) Hey big spender! With 30 or more runes you can choose to play:
-Thor Feature – 8 free spins with all wins multiplied by 3x and up to 15 extra wilds added to the reel set on each spin. Yeeeeehaaaa!
-Freyr Feature – 3 picks from 5 targets each revealing a hidden prize or a multiplier between 5x and 10x.
-Odin Feature – 8 free spins with ‘Rune’ symbols added to the reels. When a rune lands you will be prompted to pick it, revealing either a prize or a standard symbol.
By Thor’s Hammer! We are very big fans of Ragnarok slot. It’s mega entertaining and the multi-level bonus rounds are both highly enjoyable AND lucrative.
Great graphics and decent payouts with the sophisticated play of a video game? What’s not to like?!
