Online games supplier and content aggregator iSoftBet has kicked off the month of August with a brand new title, Wild Hammer Megaways, a Norse adventure that partners players with Thor, the God of Thunder, on a journey to the realm of Asgard.
Complete with cascading wins, transforming wilds, extra spins bonus rounds, and the popular Megaways mechanic, which iSoftBet licensed from Australian games developer Big Time Gaming (BTG) back in April 2019, the game’s visually imposing grid with 6 main reels and 4 cell horizontal reels is flanked by Valkyrie statues which are set in stone.
Playable on any device, this is a highly volatile video slot with a 95.78 percent RTP, up to 117,649 paylines and a possible max win of 50,000 times the stake.
Game symbols and functions:
The reels with fast-moving stone tiles are filled with well-known characters from Norse Mythology, with low pays consisting of shields with 10-A symbols, and picture tiles with Odin, Loki, Freya, and Fenrir, the monstrous wolf son of Loki, the higher pays. Players are paid when at least three matching symbols land in combination from the farthest left reel.
The one-eyed king of the Norse gods is the most valuable symbol, rewarding players 25 times the stake for a combination of six-of-a-kind while Thor’s hammer Mjolnir serves as the game’s Wild symbol. The hammer of the thunder god replaces any regular paying symbol to complete winning combinations.
Base gameplay is boosted with the addition of iSoftBet’s unique symbol matching mechanic, where if at least two matching symbols land on the top reel, they transform into wilds, as does every matching symbol on the same reels directly below them. Cascades, meanwhile, function by removing winning combinations from the reels with new symbols dropping in to fill the empty space. The process repeats until no new winning combinations form.
Lastly, landing at least four Bonus symbols activates the extra spins bonus round. Prior to the feature kicking off, players are presented with four starting combinations for multipliers and spins. The multipier increases with each winning spins, while additional Bonus icons see more spins added throughout the mode.
Huge win potential:
Commenting on the new hit title, Mark Claxton, Head of Games for iSoftBet, said…
“Wild Hammer Megaways™ takes an engaging theme and adds the power of Megaways™ to it, for heroic win potential. Coupled with our matching mechanic, any spin could turn into one of truly God-like proportions as entire reels turn wild.”
Claxton added that they are always looking to deliver exciting, innovative content to the market for their players and they are delighted to bring the matching mechanic back in a way that is sure to thrill their fans!
The latest release joins the British online and mobile casino software provider’s growing slot offering, which was just recently enhanced by Ancients of Korea. The Far-East-inspired video slot takes players on an exciting journey through the lands of Korea and offers up to 4,096 ways to win, scatters, extra spins and multipliers.
Other recent additions to iSoftBet’s games portfolio include the Egyptian-themed Pyramid Pays and Piggy Bank Megaways, created in partnership with Swedish multi-product online gaming brand Betsson Group.
