Epic Norse adventure is the theme proposed in Spell of Odin, a 5-reel, 25-payline slot machine powered by 2BY2 Gaming. It comes with double stacked wilds and a bonus feature that awards up to 24 free spins with a trio of modifier supplements. Join the battle between £ 25p and £ 100 per spin.

With a moving soundtrack resounding in the background, the action has an epic meaning, given the theme. The symbols on the reels include lower-value playing cards from A to 10, an angry horse, a gold ring, a Viking longboat and a trio of warrior women, each occupying two spaces of symbols. You only have to land 2 of the women to create a winner. Get 5 of the blonde woman for a 800-fold gain from your online bet.

Appearing on reel 3 only, the mighty Odin is the wildest game. When it appears completely stacked on this middle reel, the stacked symbol will duplicate and turn another reel completely into wild.

The sword and the shield are the symbol of the bonus. Tap 3 of these anywhere on the reels to activate the Spell Free Spin bonus. You will get here a dozen bonus rounds with one of the 3 modifier supplements. They are:

Multiplier – All gains are boosted by a 3x multiplier and tripled.
Easy re-triggering and joker – Free spins are played on a new set of reels where the odds of hitting the Odin wild and re-triggering the free spins are much better.
2x / 4x Wild – A stacked stacked Wild wins by 2x. Two jokers and Odin wins are quadrupled (4x multiplier).

Whatever your choice, there is a good chance that the free spins will be reactivated if you win the scatter again. This means you can get up to 24 free spins if you are lucky.

Visually, Spell of Odin is quite useful – the images are pretty roughly drawn, but they work pretty well when they land in stacked formations. The wide soundtrack certainly agrees with the theme and certainly enhances the action.

Features are limited but offer potential – stacked duplication helps move things around the game. If we had to opt for one of the modifiers, we would opt for easy re-triggering. However, there is little choice between the three.

Spell of Odin is not the most sophisticated slot machine you’ve ever seen, but given the theme of the storm, it’s probably not a bad thing. There is a lot of entertainment here and if Odin’s spell weaves a bit of magic, there are opportunities to earn decent in this Nordic epic. If you like the theme, Thunderstruck II from Microgaming or Viking Vanguard from WMS are solid choices.
