Jörmungandr & The End of Days
In Norse mythology, Jörmungandr, also known as Midgard (World) Serpent was the child of Loki and a giantess. Odin would throw Jörmungandr into the ocean surrounding Midgard where it would grow to such an extent that it could wrap around the earth. It was said that releasing its tail would bring about Ragnarök (end of days) – bringing death to both the gods and man!
Inspired by the story, the 5-reels and up to 3,125 ways to win slot features symbols of Thor and Jörmungandr – the two highest-paying. These are unique as they may appear as a single-space symbol or partially/fully expanded and reward a payout with just 2 symbols on a payline. Thor’s chariot pullers Tanngrisnir & Tanngnjóstr, the monstrous wolf Fenrir, and ravens Huginn & Muninn are the other highest-paying. Five (5) runes are found at the lower end of the paytable.
Acting as a wild symbol is Thor’s Hammer, which appears on any reel and substitutes for all symbols except the bonus.
The reels consist of a series of 5 unlockable levels which can be unlocked a level at a time, by 2 scatter symbols or consecutive wins, up to level 6. The level resets back to 1 when one of these scenarios does not occur. Each level corresponds to an increase in ways to win:
- Level 1: 45 Ways
- Level 2: 135 Ways
- Level 3: 405 Ways
- Level 4: 675 Ways
- Level 5: 1,125 Ways
- Level 6: 3,125 Ways
Thor’s Free Games
The bonus symbol is illustrated by a tree inside of a golden circle. In groups of 3, 4 or 5 it will unlock the power of 3, 8 or 25 Thor’s Free Games. Re-trigger 2 extra free games with just 2 bonus symbols.
During free games, each win causes it to level up as with the Lightning Feature, but the level does not reset on a losing spin but instead only at the end of the feature.
Age of the Gods™ Norse Jackpot
Finally, the Age of the Gods™ Norse Jackpot is a pooled progressive jackpot from Playtech. It shares its prizes with the original Age of the Gods™ Jackpot. The randomly-triggered multi-level jackpot is divided into the Ultimate Power, Daily and Instant where your chances of winning increase with your stake.
