HALL OF GODS
Hall of Gods is an online video slot game created by well-known developer NetEnt in 2012. This extremely popular slot features 5 reels, 20 fixed paylines, an expanding wild, a free spin round and, above all, three different progressive jackpots.
The theme of the game is based on Norse mythology, which has become even more popular to worldwide audiences lately thanks to all the films based on Marvel comics. Players will recognise familiar characters such as the gods Thor, Loki and Odin, which represent high-paying symbols in the base game alongside other characters Freya and Idun, and other theme based icons.
The graphics are sharp, the symbols are depicted with attention to detail but obviously they don’t look as cool here as they do in the comic strips or on the big screen! Background sounds vary from that of the sea when the reels are not spinning to a suspenseful one-note sound when they are, which builds up to a more exciting jingle when winning combos are completed.
Players of all levels will relish the opportunity to win one of three impressive jackpots, in a game that can boasts several top 10 progressive slot jackpot wins of all time.
All of the icons are based on the Norse mythology theme. Apart from the various Gods, the biggest excitement comes from the additional special symbols.
The Wild is represented by Jormungand, the Midgard Serpent. This symbol can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 and will spread out to cover the entire reel when a winning combination is obtained.
The Scatter, represented by Odin’s Ravens, will award instant payouts when two or more appear on the reels. However the scatter also activates the free spin round when landing at least 3 of these.
Thor’s Hammer is the bonus symbol, which will trigger the second-screen Bonus round when 3 of these symbols appear on the reels.
The highest paying base game symbols is Odin, which will award 4,000 coins when 5 of them appear on a payline. Second best is Thor, at 2,000 coins per bet level. The highest possible coin win which can be claimed in the Bonus Game amounts to 7,500 coins.
The three jackpot amounts, which can be claimed during the Bonus round, are displayed at the top of the screen and are constantly changing to reflect the latest values. The 3 jackpots are ‘pooled’ progressive jackpots, in other words they rise with every single spin logged in any NetEnt casinos which participates in this.
The jackpots are, from smallest to largest, the Mini, the Midi (with prizes which easily reach high six-figure amount) and the Mega, which awards an average in the region of 5 and half million EUROS and is won on average twice a year. So far the biggest win has been of almost 8 million EUROS.
One of the two bonus features is represented by the Free Spin round. This is triggered when three or more scatters appear on the reels, with different amounts of free spins awarded depending on the number of scatters: 10 with three symbols, 15 with 4 symbols and 20 spins with five scatters.
This feature can be re-triggered during the free spin round. All free spins come with a cool 3x multiplier which will apply to all winning combinations thus trebling all cash prizes!
The other bonus feature of this game, which is undoubtedly the key and most appealing element of this slot, is the Bonus Game, where players will have the chance to win one of the three progressive jackpots.
This is triggered when players land three bonus symbols anywhere on reels 3, 4 and 5. A second-screen Pick Win feature opens up, where players use Thor’s Hammer to break the shields to reveal the prizes hiding beneath them. The objective is to find 3 matching cash prizes or, hopefully, 3 corresponding jackpot jewel symbols to score big.
