The All-Father Odin is a common sight among slot players, but the Mmir’s Well reference is a bit more obscure. In case you were wondering what it may be, I did some research and here’s a brief summary. Some believe that Odin sacrificed an eye to the waters of Mmir’s Well at the base of Yggdrasil, the tree of life, so that he may see into the past, present, and future. Thunderkick’s slot Odin’s Gamble is based on an exciting story from the Poetic and Prose Eddas.
Thunderkick’s vast experience in this field is evident in Odin’s Gamble. The game’s visuals are stunning, evoking the mysterious atmosphere of the Norse Sagas with its settings, reel iconography, and smooth animations. The main game is set in an outside area with mountains and a moose, while the bonus round appears to be taking place in Odin’s own lounge. Both places are beautiful to look at, and the polished presentation makes you hungry for more.
Thunderkick also has extensive experience with the standard 6-reel, 4-row reel layout. This version, however, does not have the standard 4,096 accompanying methods. Instead, you can win one of 466 different ways by getting matching symbols on neighboring reels, either horizontally or diagonally, from left to right. The default RTP of 96.17% is quite high, and so is the maximum possible win of 19,333x. Choose a wager between 10 percent and £/€100 and get ready to go legendary on any gadget.
For a payment to occur in the connector ways system, there must be at least three matching symbols in view. The low-paying 9-A card symbols are rendered in Thunderkick’s signature stone cut style, while the high-paying horns, necklaces, rings, ravens, and Odin round out the set. Six low payouts will return 0.6–1.5x your wager, whereas six premiums will return 2–10x. Odin’s Gamble has a number of wilds, any of which can be used in place of a standard pay symbol. As of right now, standard wilds in the main game also have an x2 multiplier; we’ll get to the rest later.
Odin’s Bet: Slot Machine Options
Wild symbols serve several purposes, and you should keep an eye out for sticky respins and free spins with Charged Wilds and Roaming Wilds Stacks.
Permanent Victory Feature
The Sticky Win feature can be randomly activated in the base game after any win. When this feature is engaged, reels with winning symbols remain stationary while remaining reels are respun. Another respin is given if the victory is increased. This procedure is repeated until there are no more unlocked winning symbols.
Extra Spins Bonus Round
Three of the hexagonal face symbols anywhere in view trigger 10 free games. When a winning combination appears during the bonus round, the Sticky Win feature always activates. Additionally, a Roaming Wild Stack appears on the grid to supplement the other wild symbols. Between rounds of free games, the reel that has been covered by the Roaming Wild Stack will shift to a different reel at random. The Wild Stack also becomes immobile when the Sticky Win function is triggered.
Charged Wilds are also employed in the free game’s bonus rounds. These wilds have an initial Wild Stack multiplier of 2. This multiplier stays in effect until the end of the round and can rise by a maximum of x22 if additional Charged Wilds enter play. Finally, if you get three scatters during the bonus game, you’ll get an extra five free spins.
The Result of Odin’s Bet at the Slots
Thunderkick has created an outstanding slot that differentiates itself from the majority of its Norse-themed rivals in a number of important ways. The stunning visuals make an immediate impression, and when it comes to depicting a beautiful mythical scene, Thunderkick is among the finest. The group has put its skills to use at Odin’s Gamble, making it a gleaming place to feel mystical. Little things like illuminating effects or animations really help to flesh out the game, and the overall vibe is pure Thunderkick.
Better still, the team has combined the likeable visuals with several useful additions. Odin’s Gamble improves upon previously entertaining ideas by consolidating them into a single package. Firstly, there is the Sticky Win feature, seen in games like Jack Hammer (among others), which spruces up the main game on occasion but really shines during the free spins bonus round. Not only does it activate after every successful bet, but the Roaming Wild Stack makes it much more likely to do so. When you add in the progressive multiplier factor of the 466 ways, you have everything you need to do some serious harm. To put it another way, the maximum win from Odin’s Gambit is 19,333 times the initial wager. A number that is remarkably exact.
Odin’s Gamble doesn’t feel like a game that will make a huge impression, but it has all the makings of a bomb if given the opportunity. Both mythology buffs and casual gamblers should find much to enjoy, as the game has a progressive multiplier, Sticky Wins, and Roaming Wild Stacks.
