Northern Sky – Intro
Whilst some slots come with plenty of bells and whistles to maximise excitement, Northern Sky by Quickspin has taken a more laid-back approach, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive. The slot takes players on a journey to the serene northern regions of Scandinavia, where mountains are snow capped and the sky lights up in vivid colours. We are, of course, talking about the amazing phenomenon of the Northern Lights, and if you’re lucky enough to experience seeing it once in your lifetime then you’re probably lucky enough to win big in this new slot too!
About The Slot
Northern Sky is a 5 reel slot, 3 row slot with just 9 paylines, however it does also benefit from some great bonus features and a beautiful design. It’s brought to us by Quickspin and and it’s playable from as little as 10p a spin, up to £100 per spin, which makes it suitable for all different types of gaming budgets. Furthermore, as we’d classify the game as a high volatility title, it offers players the chance to win huge amounts although wins may be a bit more sporadic than usual. This means players need to be savvy about their bankroll, but manage your money wisely and you could walk with a significant windfall as there’s 3,111x your wager up for grabs on every single spin.
How Does This Mobile Slot Perform?
Northern Sky may be one of the most aesthetically pleasing slots we’ve ever encountered. Set on top of the Scandinavian mountains, the reels float against a rose-tinted sky allowing the slot to boast a minimal, clean design. What are perhaps the most beautiful aspects of the game, however, are the higher paying symbols which are all represented by alpine animals such as deer, bears and wolves. Don’t expect anything cute and cuddly though, as these animals are all sculpted out of coloured crystal, which gives them the ability to light up the sky. This paired back yet spectacular design gives the slot a mesmerizing feel and this is reflected in the soundtrack of the game too.
In addition to looking fantastic, Northern Sky also performs flawlessly across all devices, including mobile desktop and tablet. We wouldn’t expect anything less from Quickspin, a software developer brand who have always been committed to catering to mobile players, yet it’s still a nice treat to play a game which is both quick to load and perfectly responsive.

Game Features: Win Multiple Time On A Single Spin!
Whilst the graphics make Northern Sky’s base game very enjoyable, the slot really comes into it’s own once you’ve created a winning combination. The game’s re-spin feature is triggered each and every time you achieve a winning combination in the base game, and it works a little like the avalanche features made popular by slots such as Gonzo’s Quest. All symbols which have contributed to the winning combination lock into place, whilst all non-winning symbols explode. Then, new symbols fall in to replace them, giving players the chance to win again. This continues happening for as long as the symbols can be added to the exisiting combination. This feature is great because as well as giving you more opportunities to win without spending more money, it can also leave you with a full screen of the same symbol – a sure way to achieve some big wins!
Ten Extra Spins!
In addition to the Re-spin feature, Northern Sky also benefits from an extra spins round which is triggered when you collect three or more Bonus mountain symbols on a base game round. The mountain bonus symbols will collect to the right of the reels, and this means that instead of needing the three symbols to appear at once, you can sort of ‘bank’ them and find more if you’re granted any re-spins.
Once the extra spins round is triggered, you’ll be rewarded with 10 extra spins. During these spins, all lower paying crystal symbols are removed from the game, which means there’s only high paying symbols in play. This gives players an opportunity to win much larger amounts and so, whilst the extra spins round isn’t triggered very frequently, it makes it definitely worth the wait!
