How To Play Riches of Midgard
Riches of Midgard can be relatively easy to play. You only need to land two or three matching symbols on connected reels across a payline. However, the symbols must align from left to right of the reels to count as a win.
Once you load the game, the first thing to do is to select your preferred stake from the available options. You can press the coin stack on the control panel below the grid to do this.
Other buttons that you'll find on the control panel include the speaker button for muting or unmuting the sound and the menu. Pressing the menu will lead you to the paytable, game settings, game rules, and previous game history.
After ensuring you are okay with all the settings, you can click the spin button to start playing!
As expected, the symbols on all the reels aim to take you to Midgard, plus you can notice a bit of humour in the design. However, the low-paying characters are plain old A to 10 card faces. Also, you can only get a payout of less than 1x your bet for a three-of-a-kind combination with these symbols. For example,
- A can earn you 0.80x your bet;
- K is worth 0.70x your stake;
- Q has a 0.60x your stake value;
- J can award 0.50x your wager; while
- 10 pays out 0.4x your bet.
Meanwhile, with the premiums, you can get a payout for both three-of-a-kind and two-of-a-kind combinations. The following are the Premium symbols and the worth of each set if you land them across a payline.
- Beef chunks; can earn you 0.5x or 1x your bet.
- Horn Trumpets; can award you 1x or 2x your stake.
- Lady characters; have a value of 1.5x or 3x.
- The male character with a blue background is worth 2x or 7x your wager, while
- The male character with a red background can payout 5x or 15x your bet.
Hotspots Respins Feature
You may notice two individual 1x1 reel grids bolted to the sides of the playing grid; one on the left, and the other on the right. These reels are the hotspots and spin along with the central reels.
However, they give no contribution to the regular wins and combinations. Instead, their job is to trigger respins. And this is only possible if the two individual reels carry matching symbols at the same time as at least two regular reels. If this happens, the land and expand feature triggers, and you get a respin.
During this, the triggering symbols will expand to cover the entire reel on which it sits and remain locked for the respin. And if you land more matching symbols during the respin, they also expand accordingly.
You get an expanded reward at any point at which three reels contain matching symbols. Perhaps this happens in the first instance. Then, there won't be a need for a respin.
The good thing is that only premiums (or blanks) can land on hotspots during the base game.
Free Spins Feature
This feature triggers when three scatter symbols - thor hammers, appear on the reels after a spin, earning you eight free spins. In addition, you get two additional free spins anytime you land a scatter in this round.
There are no limits to how many more free spins you can earn during the feature. Besides, a new row is added to the top and bottom of the reels after every scatters appearance. And the reels can attain a height of up to 7 rows, automatically activating 29 paylines!
You might land wild symbols in the free spins bonus round, although they do not appear in the base game. However, you can only see them on the left hotspot, where it'll substitute as any symbol that lands on the opposite hotspot.
