Nordic Heroes is an IGT-powered slot game which has 5 reels and 30 paylines. Playable from 30p to £600 a spin, it can be played on desktop, mobile and tablet devices. This game takes you on an amazing adventure of fortune where you can play as Thora who is a skilled elf archer.

Firstly, on to the base game – on any spin that doesn’t trigger the bonus feature, a multiplier reel appears and spins to reveal a multiplier ranging from 2x to 30x! The more levels you unlock (see below), the higher the multipliers on offer. This is known as the Mystery Multiplier feature.

It’s a Level Up Plus game, like the retired Monopoly Plus, which offers you unlockable content and payback-enhancing features – there are 7 levels and 4 achievements to master. You have the Level Up Plus feature where you can choose from 2 characters: Thora or Ragnar. Ragnar unlocks at level 3 with unique weapons for each character.

There is also a choice of 2 realms: Forest of Fortune or Sea of Glory. There are unique monsters, reel symbols, backgrounds and free spins features for each realm. You can also defeat monsters in the Battle Bonus feature to level up and get points – this unlocks a new character, new realm, new weapons and higher Mystery Multipliers. The good thing is that your progress is saved.

The Battle Bonus feature is triggered when you get the Battle bonus symbol simultaneously on reels 1, 3 and 5 – free spins will then play out as long as your character has health. After each free spin, the battle reels spin for the character and current monster – if you manage to defeat all 3 monsters, you will earn 1, 2, 5 or 10 Victory Spin.

If the Forest of Fortune realm is chosen, you can benefit from a Roaming Wild symbol where there’s a 2x Roaming Wild on the second monster battle and 4x Roaming Wild on the third monster battle. If you the Sea of Glory realm is chosen, a random Wild Reel is award on each spin – reel 1, 2 or 3 are wild in the second monster battle and reel 1, 2, 3 or 4 and 5 are wild in the 3rd.

Nordic Heroes has some similarities to Dungeons & Dragons Treasure of Icewind Dale in terms of imagery/theme but is a low to medium variance title. Saying that, there’s still over 416 times your stake to be won on every single spin. Nordic Heroes is definitely a game that will prove popular due to being different with unlockable content – it’s not as good as Pharaoh’s Fortune or Lucky Larry’s Lobster Mania 2 though.
