Adding a new member to their much-beloved series, Playtech released Age of the Gods Norse: Gods and Giants, a mythical game full of surprises. It has 5 reels, 3 rows, and 50 ways to land a winning combination. The game will not only impress with its appearance, but it also has an amazing set of features that also includes progressive jackpots. The payouts here are guaranteed to satisfy.
The provider's Age of the Gods Norse series has done really well so far and everyone must have been excited about this release. You will get to accompany the two mythical gods Thor and Odin on their quest for gold. The Norse mythology is very interesting and the provider made sure that this game was an exciting experience just like the ones before.
The setting might not be that interesting, but you still get the idea when you see the snowy mountains in the background. The soundtrack contributes to the theme a lot more. It consists of very mysterious music and sound effects of chains rattling which make your playtime a lot tenser.
When it comes to this game’s looks, the symbols are probably the most interesting part. There are only two lower value letter symbols present on the reels. The higher value symbols appear as ice giants, fire giants, snakes, and, of course, the two gods Odin and Thor as the highest paying ones. The wild symbol appears as its interestingly designed 'W' logo and the scatter as the 'Giants and Gods' logo.
As you could imagine with an energetic battle theme like this one, the volatility is set at high as well. The surprises never seem to stop and the payouts will deliver for sure. The maximum a player can win is 1,000 times the stake in a single spin. The betting range has something to offer to everyone with the minimum bet set at 0,20 and the maximum at 300 coins per spin. The game also has a 96,49% RTP which is a very good offer.
The game has a great set of features to offer, both entertaining and unique. As already mentioned, the game offers a wild symbol that replaces all other symbols, bar the scatter symbol. You will also notice that giant 3x3 symbols appear on the three middle reels. If the symbol manages to land fully on the reels and does not contribute to a winning combination the Giant Re-Spin feature is triggered. Every time the matching symbol to the giant one lands on the reels it gets locked in for another re-spin. This will definitely ensure some amazing prizes.
If a giant symbol lands partially on the three middle reels and there is a stacked symbol filling the first reel, the Power Nudge feature will be activated. The giant symbol will be nudged to possibly allow you to trigger the Giant Re-Spin feature.
Last but not least, the game offers us a Free Games Feature that is triggered once you manage to land a full giant scatter symbol on the three middle reels. You will then be awarded 8 free spins with very high chances of walking out of there as rich. During the round, the three middle reels will always be occupied with a giant symbol while the two outer ones hold only stacked symbols. The lower value letter symbols are not in play for the duration of the feature. The great thing is that you can re-trigger the feature an unlimited number of times and it is very likely that you will do so.
The game has definitely proven itself as one of the better releases from the series and in the game industry in general. It has an interesting backstory living up just enough for our imagination. The features are both creative and exciting. The unpredictability can be scary but even if you had a few non-winning spins, that will surely change in seconds.
