Nordic Heroes Slot Highlights

Nordic Heroes slot comes with 5 reels, standard game-play symbols such as Nora the Nordic Archer, berries, mushrooms, coins, an eagle and arrowheads, and the requisite wild and scatter symbols. The game’s “Wild” symbol holds the key to free spins while the “Battle” scatter symbol leads the way to an exciting battle round.

Once a player gets three or more battle scatters on the same spin, they have earned their way into the battle round. In the battle round, they will get the chance to keep spinning the reels in hopes of defeating three boar monsters. If they complete their task before the boar kills them, they will “level-up” (Explorer, Adventurer, etc.) and unlock another Nordic hero along with more weapons to be used in later battles. Each level comes with bigger jackpots and more exciting battle action.

Players will also enjoy the “mystery multiplier” feature. When three or more of the same stacked Nordic heroes appear on the reels, the mystery multiplier is ignited. With any luck, the player can score up to a 30x multiplier to be applied against the win amount on the reels. In the right situation, the player could earn thousands of coins on a single spin.

Overall, the game is attractive and exciting. The graphics are solid while the video and audio features really help to bring the game to life. In the final analysis, Nordic Heroes is a good representation of IGT at its best.
