Play‘n GO’s new Norse-mythology-infused slot, Tales of Asgard Loki’s Fortune, revolves around the mischievous deity who seeks to block his brother Thor’s ascension to the throne.
Loki’s persona is conveyed vividly as he sits on his throne to the right of the reels, occasionally lending you his divine powers to increase your winning potential. Play’n GO stated that the envious ‘god of mischief makes his presence known’ in its latest five-row video slot.’ as you quest for the game’s top prize.
Thor and Odin make an appearance as high-value symbols while Loki is aptly cast as the wild. The scatter symbol that triggers a lucrative bonus game is represented by a gleaming green emerald and the balance of the paytable is made up of intricate carvings of ravens, wolves, horses, and serpents.
This new 5x5 reel, 20 payline, highly volatile pokie features the intriguing Dynamic Payways mechanic that can take the game’s initial 3125 payline count up to a maximum of 100 000 paylines, a massive enhancement to your winning potential.
Mystery symbols appear on the reels, remaining dormant and valueless until they make contact with wilds. When activated, they will all transform into the same matching symbol for potentially huge payouts. These symbols can also appear split in two, increasing your ways to win as they land.
Loki’s deific touch is a welcome intervention when he uses his godly powers of illusion to gift you extra wilds, award you bonus scatters or split all the mystery symbols in view.
Getting into the free spins bonus round requires that you land at least 3 scatters on the reels with a maximum of 20 free spins up for grabs if 5 scatters appear. This bonus feature inches you even closer to the game’s top potential of 20 000x your stake as wilds and mystery symbols appear with increased frequency.
Charlotte Miliziano, the Head of Games for Play‘n GO spoke out about the new title in an official press release, saying that the game’s theme may resemble that of its other Nordic mythology-fuelled titles such as Odin: Protector of the Realms, Viking Runecraft, and Ring of Odin, but that this is “the first time that players will get to see Loki as the main character with his mischievous nature revealing ‘mystery symbols that create multiple ways to win.”
Miliziano continued her comments in the statement, saying,
“Our Norse mythology series is a favourite amongst players and we’ve already explored narratives with Odin and Thor that are renowned, so we really wanted to delve into the relationship between Thor and Loki. We also thought this was a great game to utilise Dynamic Payways as it mirrors the theme of Loki’s magic in splitting payways and adding even more pace to this epic game.”
