Hall of Gods Slot
Hall of Gods is a 5-reel, fixed 20-pay line progressive jackpot online slot created by NetEnt and released in July 2012. It features all the Norse gods you're probably familiar with if you watch 'The Avengers' or 'Thor' or any of the Marvel Universe series of films (although this slot is not an official tie-in). It also features three progressive jackpots, the Mega, the Midi and the Mini. The details of these three jackpots are as follows:
- Mega: Seeds at €500k; Biggest win: €7.8M; Average win: €5.6M; Average time: 28.66 weeks.
- Midi: Seeds (depends on casino); Biggest win: €180k; Average win: (depends on casino); Average time: (depends on casino).
- Mini: Seeds (depends on casino); Biggest win €2.3k; Average win: (depends on casino); Average time: (depends on casino).
The Mega Jackpot is the only jackpot that is shared across multiple casinos, so ALL players across ALL casinos contribute towards the Mega Jackpot, and they all of course have a chance of winning it. The record jackpot win was (at the time of writing) a stonking €7,820,888 as achieved by a lucky Norweigan player at Betsson Casino in the spring of 2015.
As well as the trio of jackpots, the game plays like a normal slot with jackpots and features. The symbols in the game are either gods – Odin, Thor, Freya, Loki and Idun – or godly symbols such as rings, hammers, aces and … a box of apples … ? You start each spin off by selecting your coin value from 0.01 to 0.50, and your 'bet level' from one to five. There are twenty pay lines in total, so your final spin is always your bet level multiplied by your coin value multiplied by twenty. When you're ready to incur 'the wrath of the gods' hit that spin button!
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts commence at 3x your bet-per-line for three of those delicious-looking boxes of apples we mentioned earlier, to 4,000x in normal play for five of the king of the Norse gods, Odin.
A toothy dragon serves as the wild symbol in this game. it substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter and bonus symbols. if you land the wild symbol on any of the three central reels and it completes a win, then the symbol will expand to cover all three rows. Any new wins that are triggered are re-calculated.
A pair of crows acts as the scatter symbol. If you land three scatters on the reels anywhere you earn yourself ten free spins, plus an additional five free spins for every extra scatter symbol you land up to a maximum of twenty freebies. All wins – aside from the jackpots – are multiplied by three during free spins.
Thor's hammer triggers the bonus game. You need to land three bonus symbols anywhere to land the bonus feature.
In this game, you are presented with fifteen shields. You go around with Thor's hammer, smashing the symbols to reveal cash amounts, including the three jackpots – mini, midi and mega. As soon as you uncover three jackpot symbols or cash amounts the same, then that is what you win.
The main attraction of 'Hall of Gods' is of course that tasty 'Mega Jackpot' that will almost certainly make you a millionaire should you be fortunate enough to win it. The rest of the slot is pretty standard fare, it has to be said. If you desire to earn your place in the 'Hall of the Progressive Jackpot Gods' then you at least have chance to achieve that here!
