Thor and Mjolnir, as well as Nordic god and trusty magic hammer always make a great combo for slot developers.
Wild Hammer Megaways is the latest to join this industry, and I really love the legends Viking deities that iSoftBet has used in the title.
Join me as we explore this Megaways-inspired game:
Wild Hammer Megaways uses a 6 reels design and this looks like the main design for slots offering a Megaways concept. There are between 2 and 7 symbols on each reel, and that is how you end up with a maximum of 200,704 Megaways.
The features, iSoftBet has used things like Free spins bonus, Wild Match, Cascading Reels, Extra Spins, Increasing Multiplier, Extra Wilds, and Switching Symbols.
As a real money gamer, I decided to start from the lowest that the slot allows which is $0.20 per spin.
Bearing in mind that this is a Megaways slot, its potential still remains high despite it offering a maximum of $20 on a single spin. This game is capable of paying up to $50,000 from a single spin.
However, despite this slot being high in volatility, iSoftBet has not given it a very good RTP, and the highest it can get is 95.78%.
Combinations form with the help of a Cascading Reels mechanic, and as usual, it removes the winnings symbols replacing them with new ones.
What I love most about the cascades is the potential that they drive into a slot. This is because the feature goes on and on until there are no more wins happening.
I love free spins because of the potential that they have, and landing 4 scatters anywhere on the reels triggers the Bonus Round. I noticed that iSoftBet offers up to 4 options that you can pick from before the feature begins. This is how it looks like:
10 free spins that come with an increasing win multiplier starting at 1x.
8 free spins that come with an increasing win multiplier starting at x3.
5 free spins that come with an increasing win multiplier starting at x5.
Mystery option – this is a randomized combo containing all the above.
The Vikings Legend is one of the most common themes, and many developers will go with it to this day.
It is what we are seeing on this title, and it looks like iSoftBet has used Thor as the star in the game, alongside others like Mjolnir and his hammer.
The images that I came across include Loki, and a Freya, and several icons of Royals that act as low-value symbols.
I’ve seen some experimental Megaways that were earlier released by iSoftBet before, and I must give credit where it's due. Wild Hammer Megaways plays is way better than what I have previously seen from this developer, and especially with the theme and features.
I love the Norse mythology visuals that come epically, and the 50,000x potential puts the slot in the top-tier of recent Megaways releases.
However, due to its low RTP and high volatility, I find it more suitable for casual players.
