Delve into Norse mythology for an intense encounter with mighty deities on the slot from iSoftBet. Wild Hammer Megaways is taking you on a volatile voyage across six dynamic reels with cascading symbols, wild substitutions, reactive wins, Wild Hammer Match transformations and a free spins round with four options that can lead to wins of up to 50,000 times your bet.
Update 21st July 2021: Wild Hammer Megaways is live at William Hill and Mr Green. The global release is scheduled for 4th August 2021.
Wild Hammer Megaways is a cascading video slot with six dynamic reels, 2 to 7 rows and 324 to 117,649 ways to win. Pays are awarded for two to six matching symbols landing on adjacent reels from left to right only. You can journey to the Norse lands on desktop, tablet or mobile from 0.20 to 20 credits per spin. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 95.78%. Using the Wild Hammer Bet option to buy a feature will slightly increase the RTP value.
A voyage to the Norse lands awaits when you load the game with the reels flanked by two statues and set in front of serene nature scenery. A longship is moored on the shores of the fjord with rugged mountains in the background. A number of mighty Norse deities populate the reels while Thor’s hammer will take up the role of the lightning wild.
The pay symbols start at the low end with card royals from 10 through to A, held on wooden warrior shields and awarding 0.5x to 2x your bet for a single six of a kind. They are followed by the hound Fenrir, Loki, Freya, Thor and Odin. Hit six across the reels to win 3x to 25x your stake. Thor’s hammer Mjölnir is the wild, performing the usual substitutions duties on reels two to five while a golden shield acts as the scatter.
Wild Hammer Megaways Slot Features
iSoftBet has truly become one of the best Megaways developers, releasing to date some superb games such as Moriarty Megaways or Morgana Megaways, each with their own entertaining features and modifiers. Reason enough to take a closer look at what they have included on this occasion.
Core to the gameplay is still the Megaways game engine that creates for every spin a random number of bet ways from 324 to 117,649. As such, it will tumble at the start of a game round between two and seven pay symbols onto reels 1 & 6 as well as two to six pay symbols onto reels 2 to 5. Additionally, the game has an extra horizontal tracker at the top of the game window with four positions, extending from reel two to five, where more symbols appear on every spin.
Wins are paid for two to six matching symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the left only. The symbols from a winning combination will explode to make room for new ones to drop into the empty spaces, potentially starting a chain reaction that can lead to multiple winners in the same spin. This continues as long as a win occurs after a reaction.
Hitting two or more matching symbols in the horizontal tracker in the base game and free spins will activate the Wild Hammer Match modifier. The triggering symbols and all instances of the same symbol on the reels directly below them will turn into wilds for the current spin. Worth noting is that standard wilds cannot substitute for the feature trigger, you really need minimum two matching pay symbols.
Landing four shield scatters will trigger the Free Spins feature. The game will lead you to a selector screen with four options, each with different volatility. You can pick any on each occasion. The free spins cannot be retriggered as such but any scatter landing during the feature will award +1 spin, no limits.
- Medium to High Volatility: 10 Free Spins with an x1 starting win multiplier
- High Volatility: 8 Free Spins with an x3 starting win multiplier
- Very High Volatility: 5 Free Spins with an x5 starting win multiplier
- Mystery Choice: Will randomly pick a number of 5, 8 or 10 free spins and a starting multiplier of x1, x3 or x5.
Once you made your choice, you will be heading into the bonus round with the number of free spins and starting multiplier. The latter will increase by x1 after every winning reaction, again, no limits. Plus, the Wild Hammer Match modifier can be triggered too. The feature ends when you run out of spins or hit the max win cap of 50,000 times your bet.
Lastly, the feature buy option is making a return in jurisdictions where it is not restricted. Called Wild Hammer Bet, it will allow you to buy a Free Spins feature for a one-time amount of 100x your base bet. The following spin will land a minimum of four scatters which will then lead you to the selector screen. The round is played in the same fashion as the standard bonus feature.
Slots with Norse gods are usually an intense affair, especially when Thor and his mighty hammer Mjölnir are involved. Hence, we did not expect anything less when we started the first spins on Wild Hammer Megaways. In short, it did not disappoint. The theme and animations are very well executed with a fitting epic soundtrack giving it that extra suspenseful edge. The modifiers and features themselves are not new but work well together on this occasion.
