Viking Gods: Thor & Loki is a superbly designed, Norse-themed slot from Playson. Played using a 5 reel, 15 payline game engine, look out when Thor or Loki land on the middle reel as they can bring extra wilds into play or trigger one of the 2 bonus features. They offer free spins with expanding or sticky wilds. Play, on all devices, from between 30p and £105 per spin.

The design on show in Viking Gods: Thor & Loki is fantastic – a wintry Viking settlement forms the backdrop to the reels. There you’ll see lower value rune stones, Viking jewellery and pink and blue crystal symbols. The crystals each award up to 16.66 times your total stake per payline in the base game and even more in the bonus feature.

There’s also a wild that replaces everything bar the Thor and Loki Bonus symbols. Thor and Loki and key to triggering the game’s extras:

Viking Gods feature – this is triggered whenever a Thor or Loki Bonus lands on the middle reel. Land 1 Bonus symbol and 2 extra wilds are added to reel 1. Land 2 Bonus symbols and 4 extra wilds can be added anywhere on the reels. Land a fully stacked, 3 high Loki or Thor and you’ll trigger the Thor Free Spins feature.

Thor Free Spins feature – here you’ll be awarded 10 free spins. Look out for the special serpent wild which appears on each free spin. Collect blue crystal symbols to open new levels and add more free spins. The wild expands in each new level and can reach massive 3×3 proportions.

Loki Free Spins feature – again 10 free spins are awarded. Wolf wilds remain locked in place until they form part of a winning payline. Collect pink crystals to unlock levels – on level 2, the wolf wilds are sticky for 2 locks and on level 3 you’ll see 2 sticky wilds for 2 locks. Get through to level 4 and you’ll get 2 sticky wilds with 3 locks. An extra 1, 2 or 3 free spins are added as you unlock each new level.

You can also trigger the Free Spins feature by completing 1 of the following achievements:

  • Landing a 5x winning combination 30 times.
  • Landing part of a bonus symbol on reel 3 30 times.
  • Winning 30x your stake on a single spin 5 times.
  • Triggering any Free Spins feature 15 times.

The Achievements meter resets once you’ve played the Free Spins feature.

We enjoyed Viking Gods: Thor & Loki – the imagery is terrific and there’s a thumping soundtrack to accompany your spins. It gives the game a suitably epic feel. The features stack up well too – I really like Wold Serpent Wild in the Thor Free Spins feature where can grow to become a 3×3 Colossal Wild.

Playson has created an impressive game here. With its high spec design and nice array of features, this is certainly a slot you’ll want to conquer. If you like the theme, Microgaming’s Thunderstruck II and Yggdrasil Gaming’s Vikings Go Berzerk are recommended.
