Midgard, one of the nine realms in Norse mythology, home to man and hopefully plentiful riches for all to enjoy!
While ancient Egyptian and Greeky mythology is intriguing and mysterious, ancient Norse mythology feels somewhat special and a little more unique.
Make your way to Yggdrasil, the world tree and may it show you the path to some incredible wins and endless entertainment with this title from Net Entertainment.
Let’s take a look and see just how NetEnt has taken the theme and setting of this online video slot and made it their own and how it stands out above the rest.
Theme & Symbols
The theme of this title is old Norse mythology and as such it takes inspiration from Viking tales and folklore.
The grid is fairly simple, being set up on wooden planks interlinked with machinery and chains all decorated with old Norse runes. The background is also simple. The play grid is set in the centre of rolling hills, covered in green grass with blue skies above.
The music in the game sounds like you’re going on some epic voyage of discovery, it sounds a bit too serious for the games overall rather cartoonish art style but it isn’t anything too bad. Sound effects are sharp without being too invasive, they’ll draw your attention as they should.
The quality of the animation is as you’d expect from NetEnt. Everything is smooth, the reels spin effortlessly and when winning symbols animate they look great.
Starting off with the low-paying icons we have playing card values. Expect to see 10, J, Q, K and A make a frequent appearance.
Next up are the higher-paying symbols. These ones are represented by figures and icons in the Norse mythos. Expect to see a delicious looking cooked ham, a Golden Horn, Freya, Thor and of course the allfather himself, Odin.
The Wild icon in the game is represented by a symbol with a golden border and a purple background with a big, golden ‘WILD’ written across it. This symbol can substitute for any other common symbol in the game.
There is a Scatter Symbol present in the game that is represented by Thor’s Hammer. Land three of these during a single spin and you’ll be awarded with 8 bonus spins.
Betting Options & Features
Riches Of Midgard: Land And Expand starts off as a 3×3 video slot game with 9 paylines but can expand to a 3-reel, 7-row game with 29 paylines during bonus spins. The RTP of this title is 96.03%.
There are quite a few bonus features to take advantage of in this title.
Hot Spot Reels are reels that spin with the main ones but don’t contribute towards any winning combination, instead if a matching symbol lands in both hot spot reels and two more land on the main reels a re-spin is triggered. The symbols that landed on the main reels expand to take up the whole reel and lock in place during the re-spin.
During bonus spins triggered by landing 3 of Thor’s Hammers, should you land another Scatter on reel 3 awards an additional 2 bonus spins and opens up additional rows on either the top or the bottom of the existing reels up to a maximum of 7 rows.
You don’t have to wait to land these symbols to trigger the bonus spins. The game possesses a buy feature where you can activate the bonus spins at any time for 80 times the bet.
