Epic Norse adventure is the theme on offer in Legend of Loki, a 5 reel, 20 payline slot from iSoftBet. Spicing up the base game are 3 modifier extras that award extra wilds, symbol transformations and streak respins. There’s also a free spins feature. Play on all devices from between 20p and £20 per spin.
Set against a simple rural backdrop and the enveloping night sky, the reels are made up of A to 10 playing cards and 4 Norse gods. The best of these is the grinning Loki who’ll get you 2.5, 5 or 25 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. The hammer is the game’s wild, replacing everything apart from the scatter. Legend of Loki comes with 3 special modifier extras.
- Wild Strike feature – before a spin begins, Loki can summon up his sceptre and add a selection of sticky wilds to the reels for the spin that follows.
- Storm Shower feature – losing spins can turn into winners thanks to the Storm Shower. Lightning will strike the reels and turn symbols into the same matching one. A new payout consideration then follows.
- Stacked Respins feature – these are triggered by landing a full stack of the same symbol on reel 1. These symbols are locked and a respin follows. These continue as long as a new matching symbol or wild lands and joins the cluster. A final payout follows after a spin where no new symbols land.
Landing 3, 4 or 5 of the scatter symbol will get you a payout of 3, 5 or 10 times your total stake as well as triggering the Free Spins feature – on offer here are 10 free spins. Before the feature starts, 1 standard symbol is chosen at random – whenever this lands, it will become sticky and stay in place for the remainder of the feature.
As you’d hope for a slot with an epic theme, there plenty of action on offer in Legend of Loki. All 3 of the modifiers can deliver some timely boosts. The best chances to land a biggie come via the Free Spins feature, especially if you manage to land a high value Norse figure as the sticky symbol.
As far as variance goes, Legend of Loki sits in the medium to high range with maximum payouts of 2,083 times your stake on each spin!
The Norse theme is becoming increasing popular with players and developers alike. We won’t be disappointed if we see more Scandinavian sagas offering a similar combination of classy design and good of extras as we found on Legend of Loki.
