The slot is overloaded with levels and promises a lot of fun. Read the rules and tips below and play it in your favorite online casino.
Gameplay: Unlock levels, heroes and realms
The game is a true combination of a slot and full-fledged PC game. It is always played on 30 paylines, the minimum bet is $1 per line while the maximum is fully dependable on your battle mood and gambling preferences.
Having adjusted your bet, you become Thora, an elf archer, departing for a dangerous journey across realms to gain glory and treasures. Until a Battle Bonus activates the gameplay runs as usual, with symbols making up winning combinations. Every spin may bring wins or battles and each victory leads you up the path to the top achievements in terms of payouts. Your capabilities and sophistication of the gameplay also increase, and you change yourself – Thora turns into Ragnar, forest turns into the ocean and vice versa, as you may wish.
In a base game there are nine non-feature symbols. They pay when you land 3, 4 or 5 icons of a kind on any line. The payouts are between x5 and x1500 a line bet. A Wild icon substitutes for all symbols except for Battle Bonus icons. Multiple line wins won in a spin are paid in full. Non-feature symbols representing all sorts of elven artifacts and two main characters themselves, Thora and Ragnar, change appearances between realms, while payouts are the same for the Forest of Fortune and the Sea of Glory. The change of characters and realms depends on your achievements as a warrior.
The chance to show your courage in a battle is given by a Battle icon. A Battle icon appears on reel 1, 3 and 5. Landing 3 Battle icons on the reels activates a Battle round in which you have to defeat three different enemies using available weapon. Each victory endows your with Experience Points (XPs), increases your payback, gives access to new weapon and advances your profile from a Wanderer to a Champion and up to the level where you can switch between characters and realms as easily as true elves do. You may switch characters at Level 3 by clicking on a character icon and switch between realms at level 5 by clicking on a compass icon. A new character and a new realm means new adventures, new challenges, new wins and bonus prizes.
A base game is made up of as many as four separate modes which differ in main characters (Thora or Ragnar) and realms (forest or sea). A Battle Bonus is main entertainment in a base mode. Any spin in a base game which does not activate a Battle bonus but earns a line win may activate a Mystery Multiplier feature. It is an extra reel generating a random multiplier applied to your total win in a triggering spin. A multiplier depends on your prowess as a warrior: the higher your achievements the bigger the multiplier you may win. Your achievements are shown on a meter on the left.
When you play at level 1 to 5, a Mystery Multiplier feature multiplies your wins in a triggering spin by x2 to x20. At level 6 the feature grants a multiplier from x2 up to x25. Levels 7 and 8 are for the best and they award multipliers between x2 and x30 your win in a triggering spin. This is a good reason to play for real money and show up for each battle and be as fearsome as a true berserk.
As such, achievements in a Battle Bonus do not pay, they are for fun, yet climbing up a higher level does pay. Advancing to levels 6, 7 or 8 means a permanent boost to your wins: a Slayer, a Hero or a Champion enjoys the top Mystery Multiplier of x25 or x30. Imagine landing 5 Thoras (pay x1000 a line bet) and winning a Mystery multiplier of x30! At a $1 bet it means a $30,000 win!
A Battle Bonus in essence is a free spin mode. The primary task in a Battle Bonus is to defeat three monsters. Depending on the number of monsters you defeat and the number of spins it takes to defeat the third monster, you are awarded 1, 2, 5 or 10 Victory Spins (i.e. extra free spins). As soon as all battles and fights take place by means of spins, you have good chances for earning while your character takes care of monsters. To make things better there are roaming Wild symbols. When you fight in the Forest of Fortune, Roaming Wilds appear on reel 1, 2, 3 or 4.
When you defeat the first monster and proceed to the second, there is a roaming x2 Wild. In the third round and during Victory spins there is a roaming x4 Wild. A roaming Wild icon substitutes for all symbols including Scatters. Scatters are those monsters that your character has to fight. Scatters pay in a Battle Bonus mode: landing 3, 4 or 5 Scatters on the reels pays x2 to x10 your total bet when you fight in the Forest of Fortune. In the Sea of Glory you need to land 2 or 3 Scatters on the reels and they pay x2 to x5 a total bet.
Changing realms you change rules of a Battle Bonus as well. In the Sea of Glory Battle Bonus, you may rely on one random Wild Reel on each spin. When your character fights a Crab monster, any reel may turn Wild. In the Squid battle, a Wild Reel appears on reels 1, 2 and 3. During a Sea Serpent battle and during Victory Spins, reels 1 to 5 may turn Wild. In this Battle mode, a Wild Reel substitutes for all symbols except for Scatters.
You cannot change bet settings when a feature or a bonus mode activates. At the same time bonus modes and features offer some increased payouts. Therefore it is advisable to place higher bets in a base game to take advantage of a bonus mode and features.
The slot is equipped with an autospin mode and you may choose 10 to 50 automatic spins which run until they are over, a bonus activate or you stop a mode manually. It is doubtful though that you need an autospin mode when the gameplay is as exciting, captivating and interactive as in this slot.
This 5-reel 30-payline slot by IGT features diverse and dynamic adventures for everyone who is ready to bet any amount above $1 per line and $30 per spin.
