The past couple of slots from Hacksaw Gaming have been quite lighthearted in terms of the design with Keep 'Em Cool and Magic Piggy. Players looking for darker slots will be happy to know that the next slot from Hacksaw Gaming is Stormforged.
This slot is inspired by Norse mythology focusing on the jötunn Surtur and Muspelheim (which is described as a hot and glowing land of fire and home to the fire giants). Thankfully, Hacksaw Gaming does not compromise with the gameplay delivering multiple bonus rounds and even big wins of up to 12,500x the stake.
Stormforged is both beautiful and bland in design. There are some aspects that look fantastic such as the reels and everything on them. However, the background image is a static image that looks like something straight from a cheap Christmas card.
The reels contain intricate designs of the symbols and there are even rune symbols behind the reels. Everything on the reels just pops out in the right way. Sadly, the same cannot be said for the background.
Thankfully, it comes back around with the audio as there is ambient music throughout that fits the visuals. Occasionally, there are growls from the warriors and giants which add more suspense to the slot.
In true Hacksaw Gaming fashion, there are two main bonus rounds throughout the slot. These are different enough to stand out with the Surtur's Vengeance adding in sticky wilds and Warriors of the Storm adding in multipliers.
During the base game, there is the chance to land Hand of Surtur to add multipliers as well. There's enough throughout this slot to keep the gameplay fresh and entertaining. Of course, non-UK players will be able to buy these bonus rounds with the bonus buy option.
The hit rate of this slot is 24% whilst the RTP is 96.41% which is quite high for a Hacksaw Gaming slot. However, it's worth pointing out that certain slot sites will have a lower RTP of 94.28%.
Naturally, an epic slot like this contains a high volatility level leading to bigger wins but less frequently. Following this, there's a mighty win of up to 12,500x the stake that is certainly fit for a Viking.
Stormforged offers an epic experience to slot enthusiasts. The gameplay is extremely volatile and there are two bonus rounds to trigger throughout. It's nothing we haven't seen before but we are always happy to see it.
Alongside the gameplay, there are wins that can reach up to 12,500x the stake with some pretty good statistics. See if you can brace the raging snowstorm in Midgard to win some massive prizes!
