Northern Sky is a Quickspin slot with 5 reels, 3 rows and just 9 paylines. Playable from 10p to £100 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, you get to gaze upon the stunning Northern Lights as you’ll benefit from a respin feature and free spins bonus feature where you’ll play with 10 free spins and only high value symbols on the reels.
Visually, Northern Sky is stunning – set in the heart of rural, snowy Scandinavia, you will see the Northern Lights in the backdrop. Symbols on the reels include different coloured crystals. There’s also animal shaped symbols that are also made from crystals – they light up the sky. The animals include bears, deer, owls and foxes.
When it comes to bonus features, Northern Sky has a couple – you have the Respin feature which is triggered when you get any winning combination in the base game. All contributing symbols lock in place with the non-winning symbols being removed – new symbols then replace them. If you manage to complete or add to a winning combination, those symbols then lock in place – the respins continue as long as you get a win.
Then you have the Free Spins Bonus feature which is played when 3 mountain Bonus scatters appear simultaneously during a base game spin – you are then rewarded with 10 free spins. The free spins then play out with all the lower value crystal symbols removed from the reels – this means the animal symbols are the only ones in play. They are of higher value meaning you should win more.
All in all, Northern Sky is a beautifully designed slot – it has 2 good bonus features and is a high variance offering. In fact, you can win up to 3,111 times your total stake on every spin – the bigger wins will undoubtedly come in the Free Spins Bonus feature due to the removal of the low value crystals. If you like the theme, Play ‘N Go’s Wild North and NextGen Gaming’s Great Wild Elk are recommended.
