Age of the Gods Norse: Book of Dwarves Features

There's no doubt Age of the Gods Norse: Book of Dwarves is all about the free spins feature. The game is played across multiple levels, players always start off with 10 free spins and one low-value expanding symbol, from there on out players can work their way through the levels by collecting scatter symbols.

  • Level 1 - Players initially start the bonus feature with 10 free spins, one lower value symbol will be randomly chosen to become an expanding symbol at the start. 
  • Level 2 - If players collect 4 book scatter symbols during the bonus they'll receive an additional 5 free spins with a second (low or high value) expanding symbol thrown into play.
  • Level 3 - If players collect 9 book scatter symbols during the bonus they'll receive an additional 4 free spins with a third (high value) expanding symbol thrown into play.
  • Level 4 - If players collect 15 book scatter symbols during the bonus they'll receive an additional 3 free spins that see wild symbols expand to create 3x3 mega wilds.

The fun doesn't stop at the free spins bonus round though folks! Players can also trigger one of three lucrative Age of the Gods jackpots. Bear in mind that these aren't actually the same jackpots as the Age of the Gods Progressive Jackpot, but that doesn't mean they're still not worth winning! The jackpots are as follows

  • Daily Jackpot - The Daily Jackpot is a jackpot that must be won once per day.
  • Instant Jackpot - The Instant Jackpot is one that must be won before it reaches a certain value. 
  • Ultimate Jackpot - The Ultimate Jackpot is a large, highly-lucrative progressive jackpot.

Expanding Symbols

During the free spin bonus round, symbols are chosen to become expanding symbols, thus making them even more lucrative than they were before. As players progress through the bonus levels even more symbols (including high-value ones) come into play.

Free Spins

The Free Spins bonus round is triggered when players land 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. A random low-value symbol is chosen to become an expanding one. Players can work their way through levels by collecting scatters to earn more free spins and unlock additional expanding symbols.

Of course, this wouldn't be a good Age of the Gods slot without a progressive jackpot. Players can win one of three jackpots, a Daily Jackpot, an Instant Jackpot and the big one... The Ultimate Jackpot!

Age of the Gods Norse: Book of Dwarves

Age of the Gods Norse: Book of Dwarves is amongst the latest in a set of brand new Scandinavian-themed Age of the Gods slots that take a step away from the original games, providing players with some unique graphics and very exciting bonus features and mechanics that have really helped breathe new life into the old but gold slot series from Playtech.

Design

Age of the Gods Norse: Book of Dwarves is visually stunning. It's clear to us that a LOT of effort has gone into designing this slot. If you ever needed an indication of the direction Playtech is going in with regards to the overall look and feel of their slots post-2020, then this is a good place to start.

Behind the reels sits a beautifully drawn mountain range with an intricate stone tower dramatically protruding from a cliff edge. The reels themselves are covered in hand-drawn symbols that portray Dwarven characters including warriors, a female dwarf, a wizard and a huntsman.  Low paying symbols are a variety of Norse letters, following the same format as sister-title Age of the Gods Norse: Gods and Giants.

In terms of sound, Playtech have followed the tried-and-tested format of placing a dramatic orchestral score on top of gameplay, it's everything you'd expect from a game like this and if we're being completely it works just fine.

Gameplay

We were particularly impressed with the inclusion of a button that allows players to set their autoplay to continue until a feature is triggered, it can be pretty frustrating when you set autoplay to the maximum limit, only for them to run out before any bonus is triggered.

Win Potential

Age of the Gods Norse: Book of Dwarves lets itself down a little bit with regards to win potential. The RTP is slightly below average at a meagre 94.11%, whilst the maximum win players can possibly enjoy is 10,000x their initial stake, which isn't at all terrible, but it certainly isn't as big as other modern online slot releases.

Our Verdict

Age of the Gods Norse: Book of Dwarves is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best additions of the Age of the Gods series in years. This atmospheric mythical-themed slot might be pretty average when it comes to win potential (if you discount the progressive jackpots), but it makes up for it in every other area. If you're looking for a well-designed, modern slot that offers some excellent bonus features then we highly recommend you give this game a spin or two!
