Raven Rising Review
In Norse mythology, Ragnarök is a series of events including a great battle that happens to foretell the death of many great figures. As this is such a momentous moment, it's one that has been covered in many online slots.
Quickspin decided to focus on the journey toward this even in Raven Rising. Ravens are often known as the messengers of the gods guiding Vikings on their journey towards Ragnarök.
Keeping it simple, this slot plays on 5-reels with 20 paylines and is all about triggering the free spins round. Embark on this journey to see what treasures are out there!
As soon as the slot begins, you know that Quickspin means business. The game takes place with snow surrounding the reels and there are speckles of snow flittering throughout the reels.
On each side of the reels, there are two red-haired warriors covered in battle armour and looking cool. Each of these characters fits with the hardcore theme of the slot which is emphasised by the comic book style of design with the characters.
All the symbols on the reels relate to the Viking theme with runes and different gods on the reels such as Odin. Of course, the raven comes into play throughout the slot and is animated above the reels.
During the game, there is a masterful score played throughout that combines different stringed instruments together to create something ethereal. This is enhanced during the free spins as the music becomes more intense with horn instruments and drums as well as darker visuals.
Whilst there are some exciting moments throughout the base game, everything kicks off with the bonus game. The Ragnarök Spins feature is where multipliers do not reset and it's incredibly easy to retrigger additional spins.
Most of the relevant menus are surrounding the screen with the spin button and bet level button to the far right. Players looking for a bonus buy button will find it on the left side - but this is not available for UK players.
Naturally, as this is such an epic slot, there is a high volatility level leading to larger wins but these will be less often. Unfortunately, the biggest wins that players will receive in this slot are only 6,804x the stake.
Whilst 6,804x the stake is a delightful amount to win, it's considered quite mediocre for a modern online slot and players often expect a little higher. However, it's quite achievable in this slot with the multipliers and the high RTP of 96.07%.
Raven Rising is a quaint little slot that has some masterful moments throughout. It may take a while to get to the bonus round, but it'll definitely be worth it when it happens as this is where the real fun begins.
This combined with the delightful visuals makes Raven Rising a top-quality slot from Quickspin. Of course, we would have loved to have a bigger win potential, but we're not unhappy with what's given to us. This is definitely a slot for players that are happy with wins of this calibre.
