Norse Mythology On The Big Screen And In Gaming
Online casino games come in all different shapes, sizes, and themes – from 3-reel classics to the latest 6-reel Megaways release, up to 117,649 ways to win to more than 1 million ways to win per spin, each of these games tells a different story and one of the most popular stories is that of Norse Mythology.
The mighty rulers of Asgard dominate the casino sector with slots depicting battles between Odin and the dark elves to the mischievous antics of Loki, and naturally, some are more popular than others.
Odin was a mighty fearful God and was associated with many different aspects – healing, death, wisdom, royalty, the gallows, knowledge, war, battle, victory, sorcery, poetry, frenzy, and the runic alphabet while Freyja his wife, was known as the Goddess of love, beauty, fertility, sex, war, and gold.
How they influenced the mythical world they once resided over can be found installed into many different reel engines, each with accompanying bonus features.
Age of Asgard is an Yggdrasil Gaming powered release, available at casino and new online bingo sites alike, with a predominant focus on the powerful Goddess Freyja and her quest to overthrow evil.
An eternal feud is never-ending on the reels and whether you are backing the Queen of Asgard or the evil clan, there is a max win of £488K hiding within the high volatility reel engine.
Wilds and high paying symbols are 1×3 in size for maximum thrills and win potential and when wilds land in view, a re-spin commences with that wild held in place.
Rival wilds falling on opposing reels will launch players into battle mode, but the biggest adventure awaits within the free spins bonus.
And There’s More!
Ring of Odin launched in April of 2020 and invites players to explore the deepest reaches of Asgard in the search for epic riches.
Scatter icons are the lost ring of Odin and when three fall into view, 4 free spins commence.
Graphics are rich, audio is crisp, and features are entertaining, but not as entertaining as the maximum win potential of £500K!
However, this was not the only Norse Mythology themed title to come from Play’n GO.
Some two years earlier in October of 2018, the award-winning Swedish software provider released Viking Runecraft – a cluster pays slot with mighty features.
Players are welcome to stand side by side with the king of Gods, Odin, Freya, Thor and the ever-guarding Heimdall in search for life-changing rewards.
NetEnt are renowned for their creativity and not just with elaborate reel engines, Reel Rush 2, and Fruit Shop Megaways to be precise, they are also famed for their branded slots.
From Jumanji to Ozzy Osbourne, we thought we had seen it all until Vikings emerged – a slot machine based on the smash-hit television series of the same name.
Taking players into the heart of the action with snippets from the series, Vikings is as popular today as it was the day it launched.
Are Norse Mythology slots better than any other themed slot?
The answer to that lies with the individual playing.
