Old Norse gang together in new Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand™ slot
The end is near! I mean the end of what many experienced as a horrible year! But not before NetEnt launched one more unique game! For the Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand™ slot NetEnt got the old Norse gang together in a cartoon kind of way! Enter the mythical world of Midgard to enjoy Hot Spot Reels and a rewarding Free Spins feature. It’s also NetEnt’s first slot game to offer a Buy feature.
Vikings or Norse Gods?
It doesn’t really matter as the Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand™ slot is all about its gameplay. The game doesn’t bring innovative animations, but it does bring an exciting gameplay. Even though, you wouldn’t think it does when you look at the 3×3 layout. Looking a bit further, you notice a single symbol on each of the reels. These must be brought to your attention as they make up for most of the slot excitement in this new NetEnt slot.
What is it exactly what these two single symbols do? They bring you slot excitement! No extra winnings, though. Simply because they don’t count towards a winning combination.
These two single symbols are the Hot Spot Reels. An innovative slot feature that is responsible for the activation of the Re-spins feature! The Hot Spot Reel feature is available in both the main game and during the Free Spins feature.
During each spin, the 3 reels spin, as well as the two Hot Spot reels. When two symbols on the reels are the same as the two Hot Spot Reels, it activates a Re-spin in both the main game and during Free Spins.
All symbols on the 3 reels involved in the activation of the Re-Spin expand to cover the entire reel to stay there during the Re-spin. During the Free Spins feature, they get locked even.
What more in Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand™
I find the Free Spins feature attractive as it’s not just a Free Spins feature. It does activate as usual, with 3 Scatters, but that’s everything that’s usual about this Free Spins feature.
Just like in the main game, it starts with a 3×3 layout with a Hot Spot Reel on each side. This Hot Spot Reels feature works exactly the same as during the main game, but this time there’s the opportunity to expand the reels from 3 rows to 7 rows.
Reaching the Free Spins feature in Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand™ means you’ll enter a world of slots fun. You receive 8 Free Spins to start with, but each Scatter appearing on the reels award an extra 2 Free Spins. But that’s not all, as the same Scatter also awards an extra row with up to 7 rows available in total.
If not enough fun yet, you also have a Wild available. On the first Hot Spot reel only, but it will definitely help you activate more opportunities as it matches all other symbols!
The Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand™ also promises the Buy feature which means you can activate the Free Spins feature directly. You pay 80 times your bet for it, but in return you skip the main game and waiting for 3 Scatters.
