The Wombat says: Norse legend is the theme of the day in Ring of Odin slot from Swedish slot providers Play’n GO. Egyptian games and Greek games like their Rise of Olympus slot and their epic Book of Dead slot are more up their street. So it’s nice to see them step into Valhalla for a change.
So, what can we expect for yet another Norse-inspired slot? Aside from the usual epic soundtrack and chunky-armed gods for reel icons? Well, you’ll be pleased to hear that cool release comes with re-spins, colossal symbols, Free Spins and up to x9 Multipliers, setting it apart from it’s theme rivals.
Let’s fire up Odin’s Ring Wombat Fans and see exactly what have the Gods have got in store for us in one of the most enjoyable Play ´n GO slots that we have played for a while.
Look and Feel
The backdrop to your game play is some mean and moody mountains while the reels themselves are flanked by a couple of fierce-looking guards carved out of stone. They are also chiselled from Asgardian rock and the icons make a satisfying clank as they land.
So where is the King of Asgard then? That’s Odin by the way… His golden ring is certainly in play, but what about the man himself? If you’re very lucky you might catch sight of him on the reels, too. As for the music to accompany your spins? This Wombat was on the money; a full orchestra serves up a rousing soundtrack to up the ante as you play in the halls of Valhalla!
Ring of Odin Slot Game Play
Ring of Odin slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 pay-lines. We´d say the average is around 25 (like you will see on the Arena of Gold slot from All41 Studios), so that should give you an idea of how this game plays. We´d put this game down as mid to high variance, so make sure you have enough budget to get through any dry patches: set your bet size accordingly and only bet what you can afford.
You can spin on this Play ‘n GO game from 0.10 to 100 in pounds, dollars or euros per go, so there is a decent wager range for all types of players. This might just be our new favourite Play ‘n GO game after The Sword and the Grail slot with King Arthur, Merlin and co.
And now to those all-important symbols… Purple, blue, green and red engraved runes make up your low-value icons, meanwhile some ravens, an eight-legged horse called Sleipnir (?), Odin’s spear that is called Gungnir, a couple of wolves and the big daddy Odin (with a nugget of gold for an eyepatch) who will represent the Wild symbol in this game. He can land on all 5 reels and stand in for all other icons to create extra winning combinations.
But that’s not all; when 5x of the mighty Odin Wilds land on the reels you’ll boost your bankroll by 30x your original bet. Now that’s a win fit for the gods!
The Scatter symbol here is Odin’s eye. Is it just this Wombat or does that icon creep you out? An all-seeing eyeball on the reels? It had better trigger off a bonus or two, that’s for sure…
Free Spins and Bonuses
Odin’s Ring feature
At random on any base game spin Odin’s gold ring can land on the middle position on reel 3. If this happens the next icon that lands on top of the ring on that spin turns into the chosen symbol, and you will be given a cheeky Re-spin. See below!
Drupnir Re-spins Feature
Next, all nine symbols in the middle of the reels will become surrounded by the gold rings. The reels will re-spin one more time and the number of chosen symbols that land within the nine positions will determine the number of re-spins you get.
For the rest of the re-spins, only the first and fifth reels will actually spin with the other reels remaining sticky. Plus, the chosen symbols can morph into a giant 3×3 Mega icons ensuring bigger and better pay-outs!
If you get lucky enough to fill a Ring of Odin with a Wild symbol, you’ll be laughing all the way to the bank!
Multiplier Free Spins Feature
If Odin’s eye Scatter icon is the chosen symbol during the re-spin, you’ll set off the Multiplier Free Spins feature – and 4 Free Spins will be yours.
Each subsequent scatter that lands in the gold rings during the re-spins increases the multiplier during the bonus going up to 9x. Each scatter will also add another Free Spin to your round.
It sounds confusing but once you play it will all make sense!
Foresight Free Spins feature
Wombat Fans, you can set off the Foresight Free Spins feature by landing the Scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5. Now you’ll get 4 Free Spins with lucrative Odin’s Ring bonus active on each one of them! Plus an extra Free Spin is added to your total every time a new scatter symbol lands during play.
Ring of Odin slot has some good graphics and more bonus features than you can shake a stick at.
While this is exciting and keeps you entertained throughout your spin journey, the extras are little bit complicated, Wombat Fans. There is a lot of stuff going on on the reels – and it doesn’t always lead to a win. Our advice? Start small and see where the game takes you, but once you get the hang of things you’ll really enjoy this release.
