Nordic Queens: Thyra’s Treasure
Join the army of the heroic Queen of Denmark and follow her into the battle on the reels of Nordic Queens -Thyra’s Treasure from Aurify Gaming. The fabled Queen reigned Denmark in the 10th century and had the guts to take her army into battle against the Germans. History records are inconsistent whether she came out victorious, but her courage alone is reason enough to make her a heroic Nordic Queen on a set of slot reels. Just like the queen, the game is highly volatile with top wins well in excess of 8,000 times your stake.
The battle on this high-variance slot will go down on a 5×4 reel layout with 1,024 ways. Pays are awarded for adjacent matching symbols from left to right. Bet sizes from 0.30 to 60 coins will allow all types of reel warriors to join in on the action. It features stacked symbols, wild substitutions and a free spins round. The game is in HTML5 format, making it available on desktop and mobile devices. The RTP is set at an industry-average 96 %. We commend Aurify for providing a fast-forward button that will skip the win count for added convenience.
Those brave enough for a clash on the reels will be greeted by the pigtailed Queen Thyra, holding her Viking sword ready to lead the army into battle. A cold, wintery scene with snow-laden trees and distant mountains are the background of a Norse-themed game window with intricate ornaments. A heroic-sounding Nordic soundtrack is only interrupted by the usual win count and teaser spin noises.
Nordic Queens -Thyra’s Treasure has 9 regular pay symbols and two stacked premium symbols. At the low end, they are 9s to As and continue in ascending order with a Viking longship, a wooden log cabin, and a jewel box. Top-paying symbols are a Nordic warrior and Thyra herself, both can appear in stacks of up to four reel positions. Pays for a single five of a kind range from 3.33x to 8.33x bet. Initially, not much to shout about but that can change instantly with multi-line wins and wild multipliers.
The greatest stone monument of Scandinavia was selected for the Wild symbol, appearing on reels two, three and four only. Scatters are a Viking amulet with the word “Bonus” across them.
The Treasure Bonus Game
No doubt, the big money on Nordic Queens – Thyra’s Treasure is clearly in the bonus round. Any wild symbol landing on the reels in a free spin will reveal a win multiplier of x2 or x3. This can lead to a maximum win multiplier of x27.
Three, four or five bonus scatters will award a coin win of 5x to 50x your stake and 10, 15, or 20 free spins. The feature can be re-triggered indefinitely. Two scatters on a free spin will also add two free spins. Hitting a full stack of Thyra on reels one and five, as well as three x3 wild multipliers on the middle reels, will award a mega win of 3,585 times your stake. But even the lower paying symbols in combination with wild multipliers could already result in a big win.
Up in arms to join Thyra in battle or better stay warm at home? The win potential certainly warrants a clash on the reels of Nordic Queens – Thyra’s Treasure as 8,530 times the stake is something anyone would proudly take any time of the day. Plus, the graphics and animations are well executed while the soundtrack provides for pleasant tones in our ears. We do though recommend some caution on the bet size due to the high volatility of the game as it can be equally the reason for big win celebrations but also for quick defeats.
