The success of television shows such as Game of Thrones and Vikings has made it clear that this is the era of fantasy and mythology, and the slot world has been quick to react.
Gods and legends have always been a well-used theme in the slot world, but slots like Playtech’s Age of Gods series have lit a fire, and similar games are coming in drovers now.
One of the newest additions to this list (released in early August 2017) is God of Lightning, a slot from the often underappreciated software developer, Inspired Gaming.
About the slot
This 5x3 slot game has an RTP of 95.5%, which is pretty nice for an online slot title. A medium variance slot, the maximum win you can take from God of Lightning is 100,000.
The artwork here is exactly as epic as you assume it’s going to be, with the Norse God of Lightning standing proudly amongst other gods and godly images on the reels.
A suitably rambunctious soundtrack adds another level of epic to proceedings, ensuring that this game feels exactly like a game based on the God of Lightning should.
There’s an interesting Free Spins feature here. Land three or more of the God of Lightning scatter symbols and you will trigger the Free Spins round.
During this round, the God of Lightning can appear and transform any symbol into a wild symbol, as well as adding a free re-spin, which means that any symbol that appears on the reels can be turned into a wild symbol, which can lead to some truly huge wins.
This is not the best Norse Gods themed slot you are ever going to come across, it feels a little derivative, but it’s good fun, and the Free Spins feature is excellent.
