A progressive video slot coming from IGT, with a low to medium variance and an RTP value of 96.34%. Play as Thora or Ragnar and battle your way across the Sea of Glory or the Forest of Fortune.
Nordic Heroes is a multilevel video slot coming from IGT. It is designed as a progressive slot where you take on the role of Ragnar or Thora and battle your way across the 8 levels of the game.
Choose your hero and slay every monster which stands in your way in order to unlock new achievements and realms. The higher your level is the higher the rewards are.
As you can already see the game has a fantasy theme with a small dose of Nordic mythology. But when it comes to the visual details the game is not on the top level like in most other modern video slots.
The symbols are well designed, but the animations are on a mediocre level and don’t seem too appealing to the eye.
The gameplay in this slot is quite fast and offers a dose of excitement. All of the regular game symbols can land stacked across the reels, so you can score some nice payouts in a single spin.
Since this is a multi level game you are tempted to play it for longer spin sessions. This allows you to unlock more levels and achievements, along with extra features.
When you open the game for the first time you start playing in the role of Thora. Once you reach level 3 you unlock Ragnar and you can choose to continue playing with him or continue as Thora.
Once you reach level 5 you can enter the Realm Picker and change your current realm with the Sea of Glory. But you need to be aware that both your character and realm picks don’t really affect the game payouts.
Both characters and both realms have the same long term promoted payout. These features are purely for fun as they add diversity to the gameplay and bonus features.
In order to increase your chances of winning in this game you will need to unlock levels by collecting XP points.
These points are collected by defeating monsters in the Battle Bonus. In order to trigger this bonus you need to land a Scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 during base play. In this bonus you fight monsters until your character is defeated or until you defeat all three monsters.
Once you defeat them you will be rewarded with 1, 2, 5 or 10 Victory spins. During the Victory Spins and the Battle Bonus you can get a Roaming Wild which can come with a multiplier from x2 to x4 if you are playing in the Forest of Fortune realm. If you are playing in the Sea of Glory realm you will get one Random Wild Reel on each spin.
On any given spin you can also trigger the Mystery Multiplier Feature. If you are on levels 1 to 5 you can get a win multiplier up to x20. If you are on level 6 the win multiplier can go up to x25 and for levels 7 and 8 the win multiplier can go up to x30.
Nordic Heroes is a 30 payline slot with a fixed number of paylines where the bet size can range from $0.30 to $150 per spin.
This is a low to medium variance slot with an RTP value of 96.34%.
Nordic Heroes in an overall interesting video slot thanks to its progressive design. The IGT designers did a good job with the bonus features in the game and more or less with the visual details.
The slot tempts you to keep on playing it with the end goal being to unlock the last level. This is when you can get the biggest payouts in the game since the Mystery Multiplier can climb up to the top value of x30.
