Winning combinations payout when you match enough examples of the same symbol across reels from the left, without a gap in the sequence. Reels one and six can have between two and seven symbols on them. The inner four hold anything from two to six each, with the horizontally spinning reel above them. With the maximum number of symbols on every reel, this Megaways system gives you 117,649 ways to win.
There’s plenty going on in this Norse epic, starting with the tumbling reels game engine. There’s a total of 3 bonus features. Thor’s Hammer can deliver some wild action and there’s also a free spin feature-complete with expanding multiplier.
Tumble feature: Land a winning combination and the payout is made as normal. The Tumble feature is then triggered and a tumble then follows. The successful symbols are removed from the reels and new symbols tumble down and replace them. If this creates a new winning combination, another payout is made followed by another tumble. The tumbles keep on coming until no new winning combination is formed.
Hammer feature: The Thor’s Hammer symbol appears 2-wide and doesn’t offer any payouts. It can land at the top of reels 2, 3, 4, and 5. When the hammer does appear fully formed, the Hammer feature is activated. The symbols directly below Thor’s Hammer turn into wilds to give you wild reels. A payout consideration then follows with the new stack of wilds.
If the Thor’s Hammer symbol changes to a new position on the top row as a result of the tumble, all symbols on the reels below also transform into wilds. Finally, the Hammer feature is not triggered if the Hammer symbol is not fully visible on the top row or doesn’t change position after a tumble.
Free Spins Feature
The main offering is the Free Spins feature. It’s triggered by landing scatter symbols that spell out the name THOR. This will get you the minimum allocation of 10 free spins. Each extra +4 scatter that lands on that triggering spins adds another 4 free spins to that total. The maximum number of free spins you can begin with is 30.
If you trigger between 10 and 18 free spins, you’ll have the opportunity to spin a wheel and gamble to try and increase that haul. If the gamble is successful, you’ll receive 4 more free spins. Lose the gamble and you’ll lose all your free spins. You can gamble your way to up to 22 free spins here.
The feature begins with a standard 1x multiplier. Each tumbling reel win increases that multiplier by 1. There’s no limit to how high the multiplier can go. It also doesn’t reset to 1x on a losing free spin/tumble. Land 3 scatters and you’ll add 4 more free spins to your total. You can trigger the Hammer feature from within the free spins for wild reels.
