How To Play
Playing on this slot machine requires you to land at least 3 matching symbols across paylines to form a winning combination. The paylines are fixed, so all 20 are active whilst you spin the reels.
The stakes button lies to the right of the grid, along with the spin button. If you tap the stacked coins button, it'll open up the + and - buttons, which you can use to select your preferred wager. Stakes range from £0.20 to £5 per spin on Wizard Slots online casino.
The settings icon to the left of the reels leads to other necessary settings like sound or viewing the paytable and game rules.
When you are ready, you can click the spin button anytime you want to start playing a new game round.
You get a set of runes as the low-paying symbols in this slot, while the Premiums consist of a helmet and Viking characters.
The M and F-shaped runes carry a value between 0.5x and 2x your bet, while the rest are worth 1x your stake or less. The amount you get depends on whether it's a 3-of-a-kind, 4-of-a-kind, or 5-of-a-kind combination.
Below are the worth of the premium symbols if you land 3, 4, or 5 matching ones across a payline.
- The horned helmet can pay out 1x, 2x, or 4x your stake.
- The male Viking with a sword is worth 1x, 3x, or 6x your wager.
- The female Viking can award you 2x, 4x, or 10x your bet.
- The giant male Viking wearing a horned helmet gives the highest payout of 2x, 5x, or 20x your stake.
In addition to the regular paying symbols, you may also land wilds or Kraken bonus symbols.
Wilds can only appear in the base game or the Respins feature, and they can substitute for any paying symbol to complete a potential win. However, they cannot substitute for the Kraken bonus symbol.
On the other hand, the Kraken bonus symbols are responsible for unlocking the bonus game if you land 3, 4, or 5 of them in a single spin.
This feature may trigger randomly after a spin during the base game. If this happens, between 2 and 4 walking wilds will appear on the reels. These wilds will move one step to the right or one step to the left while the reels respin each time. The walking wilds maintain whichever direction they pick for each respin.
If perhaps you land a walking wild over a regular wild during the process, it'll earn you a +1 multiplier which will remain until the end of the feature.
The feature ends when no more walking wilds are on the playing grid.
Into The Storm Bonus Round
You can trigger this feature by landing at least 3 Kraken bonus symbols.
Landing 3 Kraken bonus symbols will earn you one Kraken Hotzones, 4 will award you 2 hot zones, while 5 bonus symbols will result in 3 Kraken Hot Zones.
The feature plays out on a 9x5 grid, and you get 3 spins for a start. During this, you may get blanks, sticky multipliers with a value between x1 and x3, or modifier symbols on each position after a spin.
Landing any of the above characters apart from blanks will reset the spin counter to 3.
Meanwhile, there are four different modifiers you can land:
- Hammer: causes a flash of lightning, doubling the values of random multiplier symbols it strikes.
- Treasure Chest: adds the value of all available multiplier symbols together and reflects this itself, adding this amount to the total.
- Viking Coin: increases the peak of your spins from 3 to 4.
- Kraken Hot Zone: activates the corresponding feature.
Once the number of spins reaches zero, the feature ends, and the total of all visible multipliers is awarded. If you manage to fill the grid with symbols, then you will receive a payout of 10,000x your stake, and the feature will end.
Kraken Hot Zone Feature
Once triggered, you may land new Kraken symbols in addition to the ones you already have on the grid. After which, a Hot Zone forms around them, exhibiting multipliers of 2x to 5x in all adjacent spaces.
These multipliers are, however, different from the usual multiplier symbols. So you may still land regular multiplier symbols on top of the Hot Zones multipliers. If this happens, the latter will boost the value of the former, creating a higher multiplier.
It is also possible for the Hot Zones multipliers to overlap each other, thereby multiplying their values!
Into The Storm RTP
Return To Player (RTP): 96%.
The RTP is a theoretical value and is shown as a percentage. It’s used to describe the percentage of money wagered a particular casino game may pay back to players over a certain period of time.
For example, if a game had a RTP of 92%, in theory, this would mean that for every £100 wagered, the game could return £92 back to players in potential winnings. However, it is important to note that winnings are completely random, and players are not guaranteed to receive this.
