Expert's review Trystan Michielsen

Slot tested

Odin’s Gamble brings us to Asgard and the home of Odin. Here, we see his gamble play out as he visits Mimir’s Well and sacrifices an eye to see past, present and future. For the players, the game offers free spins, sticky re-spins and stacked wilds.

While the background for this slot is very interesting, it’s ultimately not really relevant to enjoy the slot. The game explains its features pretty well. Most of the gameplay takes place on the 6-reel, 4-row playing field with 466 paylines. If that number seems odd, it’s because the game counts it a win when the same symbol touches either horizontally or diagonally. If this happens at least 3 times from left to right, players are awarded the win.

Developed by Thunderkick and released in 2022, the game shows off the studio’s proficiency with this Nordic setting. The graphics are sharp and clear, with the use of bright colours contrasting more grounded earth tones in the background. We can see the base of the world tree Yggdrasil as well as the rustic nature surrounding it. Everything looks very appealing and helps place the events of the game.

The music and sound design is another element that helps put the whole experience together. We can hear a rather quiet song playing that would fit the world of Asgard just as well as the Nordic countries. The sound effects can be a bit harsh in contrast but generally don’t take away from the experience too much.

Symbols

Odin’s Gamble combines the usual low-paying card letters with original high-paying symbols. These special symbols draw inspiration from the setting, with Odin obviously being the most important. Other symbols include Mimir’s Well itself, various trinkets as well as a mask. The card letters feel out of place but are designed to somewhat resemble Nordic runes.

The game comes with High Volatility which means players will be hard-pressed to get many wins. Instead, people have to rely on the slow trickle of bigger wins that possibly compensate for the losses up to that point. There are different features in the game that help balance it out, which I will talk about later. The RTP of 96.17% is slightly above average for this type of slot.

Players that want to try this slot can pick a bet they feel most comfortable with. The game offers bets between £0.10 and £100 per spin. To incentivize players to play this game, there is a jackpot of a maximum of 19,333x your bet. Although there are some slots that offer a bigger jackpot those are few and far between.

You will encounter the following symbols in the game:

  • Wild: Wilds substitute the regular symbols in the game. Wilds automatically apply a 2x multiplier.
  • Scatter: Get 3 Scatters on the screen to activate the free spins mode.
  • Odin: Max. 10x your bet with six-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Crows: Max. 3x your bet with six-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Ring: Max. 2.5x your bet with six-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Necklace: Max. 2.2x your bet with six-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Horn: Max. 2x your bet with six-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Ace: Max. 1.5x your bet with six-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • King: Max. 1.2x your bet with six-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Queen: Max. 1x your bet with six-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Jack: Max. 0.8x your bet with six-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • 10: Max. 0.7x your bet with six-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • 9: Max. 0.6x your bet with six-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.

Features

Odin’s Gamble brings a number of features to the table in an attempt to spice up the gameplay. It has moderate success with this, giving the game some more appeal to players that enjoy more than the basic gameplay loop.

The main features in the slot include:

  • Connecting Pay Ways: Wins are counted left to right if the same symbol touches at least 3 times horizontally or diagonally.
  • Multiplier Wilds: Wilds substitute the regular symbols in the game. If they’re part of a win, they apply a 2x multiplier to the total.
  • Charged Wild: During the free spins mode, the Charged Wild appears and stays for as long as there are free spins remaining. Its multiplier increases as more multipliers from other Wilds are added.
  • Sticky Win: The game randomly triggers the Sticky Win feature. This causes winning symbols to become sticky and the other symbols to respin. This continues until no additional winning symbols are locked.
  • Free Spins: Get 3 Scatters on the screen to activate the free spins mode. In this mode, all wins trigger the Sticky Win feature.
  • Roaming Wild Stack: During the bonus game, an entire reel will be covered with wilds. This reel will be moved after every spin.

While the free spins mode is definitely the part of the game where the biggest gains are to be found, the base game can be quite lucrative as well. The downside to the main game is the randomness of the Sticky Win feature. This can trigger frequently or almost never.

In the free spins mode, the Sticky Win triggers any time there is a win. What’s more is the Roaming Wild Stack that adds a reel of wilds to the screen, as well as the Charged Wild that increases its multiplier any time another Wild adds its value. This can quickly become a sizeable bonus to any wins.

In Conclusion

Odin’s Gamble feels like a slot that makes excellent use of its source material. People that are familiar with Mimir’s Well and the story surrounding Odin’s eye will pick up on a number of small details. Those that don’t are still presented with a beautiful and enjoyable game.

The game offers players a wide variety of features that can show up in different combinations. These possibly result in big wins, making it always entertaining to watch the slot play out. I found that my funds tended to trend upwards, although this is obviously no guarantee.

Players can look forward to a nice time with a well-designed slot. The prospect of a big jackpot is obviously something to keep in mind. However, even without triggering the maximum win, I think this game offers enough to keep almost every type of player entertained.

Overall rating:

3.7
