Great news everyone – IGT’s new Nordic Heroes slot is coming out on the 28th of January and starting the New Year off with a bang. Although some might be disappointed with yet another Viking themed slot, the gameplay of this mobile slot is innovative: levelling up, unlocking characters and new backgrounds sounds very much like a video game, just with real money winning potential. Plus, the game is a real looker and has got a plethora of exciting features, so if you have it in your heart to overlook the overly-familiar theme and give this IGT title a shot, you could be onto discovering your new favourite mobile slot!
You've still got to sit tight and patiently wait for the release of Nordic Heroes by IGT on the 28th of January, but until then, we've got plenty of scoop on the game to tempt you. In a nutshell, this is a five reel and thirty payline slot that looks like any other, but seeing as it was developed by IGT, there are multiple catches.
More Than A ‘Spin And Win' Game
Don't get us wrong, there is nothing bad with ‘spin and win' slots. In fact, those comprise 99% of the slots that we play. But every once in a while, a mobile slot comes by that blows the rest out of the water with innovations in gameplay and Nordic Heroes definitely does that.
Let's begin by saying that purported Nordic theme is not like the other Viking-heavy slots: it's more of a fantasy and adventure than horned helmet and wooden shield type of game. Then consider the Level Up Plus feature, that will take you through a journey of seven levels and four achievements, all of which can increase your winning potential tremendously.
Each level that you achieve, there will be new weapons to choose, new realms to conquer, unique reel symbols, new game backgrounds and more extra spins, in addition to improved RTP and better mystery multipliers too!
Wait, what mystery multipliers? Well, when three or more Nordic heroes become stacked on your reels, you'll be awarded a mystery multiplier bonus round, with multipliers anywhere from 2x to 30x can be applied to the win on your reels. How awesome is that? And don't worry about leaving the game for a break, as all of your progress will be saved, so you can pick up where you left and continue gaining more achievements and winning more cash.
More Features Than You Can Handle
And that's not all! There are more features big and small that IGT included in Nordic Heroes:
- Five reels and 30 paylines
- Level Up Feature to unlock new realms, levels, weapons and special bonuses
- Mystery Multipliers up to 30x that increase with each level up
- Battle Bonus Feature is when you battle a beast in extra spins rounds; if the beast is defeated and you still are alive, extra extra spins are awarded
- Two realms to choose from – Forest of Fortune (benefit from Roaming Wild symbol) or Sea of Glory (benefit from random Wild Reel)
- Minimum 30p and maximum £600 bet
And while there is still some time to wait for Nordic Heroes, why not check out many of the classic IGT slots, such as Da Vinci Diamonds, Pixies of the Forest or Golden Goddess, or their absolute newest release Family Guy? You can find all of these titles at great mobile casinos such as Mr Green and Casumo, so hang around there to wait for the launch of Nordic Heroes real soon!
