Playing card symbol, hams, and a curved horn appear alongside the 3 cartoon gods, Thor’s hammer, and a golden wild symbol. They sit against a wood-effect structure that’s held up by chains and cogs. Play starts out on a 3x3 grid, but you’ll notice blank symbol positions above and below, plus a single Hot Spot symbol to the left and one to the right of the main reels.
It’s an unusual setup, and linked to the unique bonus features of the Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand slot machine. Matched symbols in the Hot Spot symbol positions to the sides will trigger the Land and Expand respin and during a free spins round, the blank rows start to fill, giving you more chances to claim wins by matching symbols across the 3 reels.
You can play on PCs, iOS, Android, or Windows smartphones and tablet computers, with all of the looks, features, and potential rewards of up to 87,000.00 carried across intact on all platforms at the best mobile casinos, also available when you use a no deposit bonus.
The exceptionally wide wager range gives you the option to play the Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand slot with just 0.10 per spin, while high rollers can wager a maximum of 200.00. You’ll need to see 3 examples of the same symbol across any of the 9 paylines to win, with the lowest value card icon worth 0.4x your wager, and Odin worth the most, at 15x.
It’s easy to set up, which will suit inexperienced players, but comes with enough wager options, plus features such as Autoplay and Turbo modes to satisfy those who have played online slots for years. Take a look at the paytable before playing NetEnt’s Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand slots game, to see how the unusual reel layout works. You’ll find it under the small ‘I’ button to the left of the control panel.
The Hot Spots are key to the respins feature. If you see the same symbol in both left and right Hot Spots, any 2 or more examples of it on the main reels will expand to 3 rows high and lock in place as the other reels respin. This can lead to a big win from the Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand slot machine.
Look out for the hammer symbol in any 3 or more places. This awards 8 free spins, and if the hammer turns up at any point, it activates a row above or below the main set. It also extends the free spins by 2 extra games, giving you more time to expand the reels to the maximum of 7 rows, crossed by 29 ways to win.
A gold wild symbol also makes an appearance during the free games, landing on the left Hot Spot to make it much easier to trigger the expanding symbols and respins feature.
The maximum win multiplier of this low to medium variance game is 435x. At the highest wager level, it adds up to a win of 87,000.00 which is relatively low, but consequently, easier to reach. The average return to players percentage of 96.03% is about what we like to see from low to medium variance games.
Perhaps it’s due to the Marvel movies, but it seems that Norse gods have never been so popular. The Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand slots game will keep them in the public eye, with a pleasing cartoonish style and some ingenious features. The expanding symbols in respins are almost certain to lead to wins, and during the free games, the addition of the wild symbol will trigger the Land and Expand feature more often.
