In this slot, the developers at Pragmatic Play take on possibly the hardest character in mythology, none other than Thor the mighty deity in their latest game Power of Thor Megaways. Not only was Thor the God of the sky and thunder, but he was also the god of agriculture. The slot is set within the superb Midgardian landscape, containing the majestic mountains and valleys. From the minute the game loads you get a great idea of what Power of Thor Megaways is all about.
This is no nonsense mythology, where you must keep up with the gods or be left right behind on your own. If you are looking for a serious slot with passion, then this could be just the slot you are looking for. Keep reading to find out more.
Theme & Symbols
Once you begin to play you will immediately see that there is a nod to other slots such as Vikings Unleashed Megaways which is probably the biggest competitor but has a lot better humour than Power of Thor Megaways which has a far more business attitude. The ambience comes together beautifully thanks to the dramatic soundtrack which becomes even more pressing during the free spins feature.
When it comes to the symbols you can expect to come across 10 in total and these operate from left to right, starting with the leftmost reel. The lower paying symbols are the usual 9 through to Ace and these will create most of the winning combinations. These are followed by the four Viking warrior symbols, a lady with a horned helm, a pair of craggy gentleman and the highest value symbol which is Thor. If you land a line of six Thor’s, you will be rewarded with 20x your stake whilst landing six of the other three will pay you from 2x to 5x your bet.
Once the game has loaded the first thing you must do is choose the bet level that you are most comfortable playing with and this ranges from 20p per spin up to a maximum of £100, and thanks to this wide bet range the slot will appeal to a wide range of players, and better still the game can be played on all devices.
On every spin of your reels, you will see 2 – 7 symbols land plus an additional 4 symbols which will land on the horizontal reel which sits above the game reels. When the game grid is full there is a massive 117,649 ways to win on offer, but this does change at random on every spin. Amongst the statistics published there is the return to player that has a default setting of 96.55% which is on par with the competitors in this market, when it comes to volatility this is high with the developers giving it a 5/5 rating, and though the 5,000x is rather modest. Whilst there is nothing major with regards to the maximum win for me it lacked a little sparkle that you may expect from this set up.
When it comes to the wild there are two different ways this works within this slot, first you have the regular 1x1 which will appear on the upper horizontal reel. In both scenarios the wild can substitute for any of other symbols to create winning combinations. The other way the wild works is discussed in the features section below.
In the same vein as the majority of Megaways slots when you land a win this is removed by the tumble feature and new or existing symbols drop down to fill the gaps. This can then see you landing extra wins and the tumble mechanic continues until there are no new wins created.
Mjolnir aka Thor’s hammer will only appear on the horizontal reel and it takes up two positions. When you land the hammer fully in view either on a tumble or initial spin all the positions underneath it turns wild and randomly add between 2 – 6 reels per reel. The wilds on the main reels are removed if they are part of a win, but the original hammer symbols stay put meaning that this hammer feature can trigger again and again if the hammer lands up in a different position after a tumble.
To activate the free spins feature you need to land four or more of the scatter symbols in view to spell out “T, H, O, R” and you are then rewarded with 10 free spins, there are a total of nine scatters that can land with each adding +4 free spins to your total.
If you win from 10 – 18 free spins you then get the choice to gamble them on an Extra Chilli wheel to win or collect. If you choose to gamble the wheel will spin and land either a green winning segment or a blank losing one. If you lose, all your free spins are removed, and you are taken back to the base game. On the other hand, if you win you have 4+ up to 22 free spins added and the feature begins. Once in the free spin feature there is a win multiplier that comes into play and this increases by +1 after every tumble. The hammer feature is also in play and the scatter symbols therefore you can land three scatters to reward you with an additional +4 free spins.
The other way you can activate the free spin feature is by using the buy in option that is on offer. This will cost you 100x your bet however you are rewarded with enough scatters to win from 10 – 22 free spins on the following spin and you can gamble the free spins as explained above if you wish.
The developers may have borrowed some ideas however they are so well executed that you will not register this after you have been playing for a while. Before you know it, you have been dragged into the world of Thor and all that it has to offer you.
The slot has a fast pace that stays steady throughout the entire game and the features on offer are good and overall, there is nothing negative about this Norse inspired slot.
There are some excellent features and opportunities to win, and the slot is one of the more exciting Megaways offering in quite a while and in my opinion, it certainly breathes new life into this category of slots.
