Theme, Design and Layout
The theme in North Strom slot is a mixture of Asgardian and Game of Thrones details. You will see that the background resembles the landmark place in the Game of Thrones’ wilderness beyond the Wall, where the Army of the Dead and the Night’s Watch fought. The Wild, featuring a werewolf, resembles House Stark’s emblem. The Scatter, though, looks like a combination of Thor and the Night King. It is a symbol where a man is presented with ice-blue eyes, wearing a helmet.
Moreover, the developer has managed to depict the feel, look and sound of the history/mythology/fantasy genre perfectly. The visceral appeal dominates the screen, and it’s snowing even, preparing you for the real North storm. The symbols on the reels are all made of stone, with golden, silver and bronze details, complementing the theme.
In terms of layout, if you know how to play online slots, you will be able to handle the game. Below the reels, you get the display showing you that 25 fixed paylines are in play, the stake configuration field and the autospin button. Then, you have the spin button in the middle, and on the right of the screen, you have the settings, the paytable included.
Special Symbols, Bonus Features and Gameplay
The Wild can replace any other symbol to complete a winning combo, but it cannot replace the Scatter. 5-of-a-kind combo with Wilds is one of the two highest-paying combos you can get, giving you 100x the stake. The other symbol that can deliver this payout is the symbol with the golden Celtic pattern. The playing card royals from 10 through K can ultimately pay 4x the stake. Considering the slot can be played for a stake that goes anywhere from 0.25 to 50 credits per spin, these symbols will give you some decent prizes. Although not confirmed, the slot can pay 1,000x the stake or even more, meaning around 50,000 credits can be yours per spin. Want to learn how to get to that payout?
Any winning combo on the reels triggers the Bonus Falls Feature. You will get paid for the win and the symbols that participated in the combo will disappear. The remaining symbols on the reels will fall down to close the symbol gaps, and new symbols will appear to complete the reels. As long as you form winning combos on the reels, the Bonus Falls will be repeated.
North Storm Slot Free Spins Bonus Games
During the Free Spins and the base game, the Increasing Multiplier Feature can be triggered. The default Multiplier value is 1x, but during the Free Spins 2x. Upon the 1st cascade, it increases to 2x and 4x, and upon the 2nd cascade, to 3x and 6x. If you manage to land further combos, and a 3rd cascade happens, the Multiplier will go up to 4x in the base and 8x in the Free Spins bonus games! The Scatter is the Free Spins symbol. If 3 appear next to each other on a payline you get 8 Free Spins. If more appear on additional paylines, you get 2 extra Free Spins, to a maximum of 20. The Free Spins cannot be retriggered, but huge rewards can be won thanks to the Increasing Multipliers and the up to 20 Free Spins. If you fancy taking a trip to land more big wins, Yggdrasil Gaming’s 9k Yeti is a good slot to play.
