Wild Nords Slot Review
Red Tiger Gaming’s Wild Nords is a Norse mythology themed slot and one which has been designed using sublime and crisp 3D graphics. The graphics in this mobile-friendly game are so good that it can actually run rather slow on older devices. Expect to find twenty paylines spread over this game’s five reels, but impressively, players can win in both directions – so winning combos run from right to left, as well as left to right. Wagers are a doddle in this game, with players unable to alter the lines, a simple “total stake” option gives players the chance to bet between $0.20 per spin and $500 a game. A respectable non-progressive jackpot of 1,000x their total bet will be appealing to any player who gives this slot a run for its money.
Theme and Symbols
There are three main characters which appear in this cartoony slot, and each of these is loosely based on a Norse god. Bjorn (Thor), Rolf (Odin) and Astrid (Valkyrie) all appear as wilds and have special bonuses attributed to them, while animal symbols also play a part in landing decent wins.
Aside from the thematic symbols, this slot also offers up shield symbols based on those animals, whilst the generic high-playing card symbols make up the rest of the offerings, with wins from these standard paying icons ranging from 2x up to 200x your total bet.
There are three wild symbols in Wild Nords. These show up as the three main characters, and each can deliver wins worth between 30x and 300x your total bet, as well as substituting for all other symbols in the game.
Animals (a wolf, a bear and an eagle) can randomly appear on the reels. When they do, they will summon animals of their own kind onto the reels. These symbols will then lock into place, and a re-spin can be issued, boosting your chances of success.
Re-spin Wild Bonuses
As for the main wild symbols, they can also deliver re-spins. Astrid: Nord of the Eagles can turn any eagle symbols into wilds when she appears on the reels. The wild symbols then lock into place, and a re-spin is triggered. Rolf: Nord of the Wolves can do the same thing to wolf symbols, while Bjorn: Nord of the Bears can offer the same bonus feature as the other two characters, but with bear symbols.
Our Take on Wild Nords
Wild Nords is certainly a slot machine you’re going to want to look at if you love your wild symbols. With three wild symbols, each capable of triggering re-spin bonuses, and a randomly triggered symbol feature and the ability to win in both directions, there is lots to like about this game. Could it do with a free spins bonus to boot? Yes, but then again, it’s not as though players won’t find something exciting about the features that this game does carry.
