Riches of Midgard Slot
Here's a quick lesson in Norse mythology for anyone who didn't study it at school and hasn't seen any of the recent Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. "Midgard" is the name that the Norse gods gave to Earth, our home planet. That means this slot is really called Riches of Earth, and that's reflected by the rolling Scandinavian hillside in the slot's background. That's the only familiar-looking thing in this entire slot. You'll immediately notice how unconventional the reel set looks. Seemingly mounted on a wheeled rack of some kind, it offers a 3*3 reel set with black spaces to the top and bottom and a pair of additional symbols on either side. Don't get attached to that layout. It's likely to change significantly as you spin. Let's deal with the basics first. 10 to A are the least valuable symbols on Norse-themed reels, followed by a joint of ham on the bone, a Viking horn, a female goddess, a brown-bearded Viking, and a white-bearded Viking. We have a special golden wild symbol to help out with wins and Thor's hammer as a scatter.
Riches of Midgard Bonus Features
Here's where things get a little complicated. This feature's full title is "hot spot reels and land and expand respins," which doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. The "hot spots" it refers to are those additional symbols that jut out from the right and left of the standard reels. They mean nothing in the context of paylines, but if they match at least two symbols on the standard reels, they trigger a series of re-spins. During re-spins, the matching symbols that triggered the feature are locked into place. All seven rows (including those blank ones above and below the standard reels) will now re-spin in an attempt to land more matching symbols. The feature ends when no more matching symbols can be found.
Land three Thor's hammer scatter symbols to trigger free spins. You'll have eight of them when the feature starts, but if the hammer lands in the third reel during the bonus, you'll receive a further two spins. You also get an extra row opened up each time the hammer lands. That's subject to a maximum of seven rows, which also boosts the number of paylines to 29. The respins feature can be triggered from inside the free spins feature.
If anyone has an automatic right to make Viking-themed online slots, it’s NetEnt. They are, after all, based in Sweden. This isn’t their only contribution to the immensely popular Viking theme of online slots, but it is perhaps their most original. The bonus features are extremely innovative and complement each other well. That being said, originality is pretty much what we’ve come to expect from NetEnt. While Finn & the Swirly Spin and Reel Rush 2 are prime examples of what we mean when we say NetEnt are an original online slots developer, they also deserve credit for their less outlandish features. The official Guns n Roses slot is one of the best licensed slots you’ll ever find, and Starburst is still one of the most popular slots in the world despite closing in on being a decade old. NetEnt doesn’t really make online slots - it makes classics.
