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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
