Wild Hammer Megaways Review
If you're a fan of Viking mythology then you're in the right place! Wild Hammer Megaways is a fantastic 6-reel, 117,649 ways to win Viking-themed slot developed by iSoftBet that boasts beautiful graphics, an atmospheric soundtrack and most importantly lucrative bonus features that can see players win up to 50,000x their stake when the stars align.
This atmospheric slot is beautifully designed by the talented team at iSoftBet. Either side of the game's reels sits two winged figures carved from stone watching on as players stake their fortune, behind those are dramatic mountains and deep dark forests.
The game reels are just as dramatic, low paying symbols are your standard 10, J, Q, K, A painted onto wooden Viking shields. Higher paying symbols are the famous faces you'll normally come across in these slots... Fenrir, Loki, Freya, Thor and Odin. Special symbols include Thor's hammer as the wild and a golden shield as the scatter symbol.
The soundtrack features slow drums and a classic Viking lyre... It made us feel like we were building up to something dramatic and whilst it wasn't exactly high-octane it still had us on the edge of our seats.
This slot plays like most new iSoftBet slots in the sense that there are three key buttons on the right-hand side of the game screen, autospin, spin and stake selection. On the left-hand side of the game reels, there's an information button and the sound settings.
In addition to the 6 main game reels, there's an additional reel featuring four symbols that spin horizontally, this essentially adds an extra symbol to reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 meaning even more paylines.
Frustratingly, high volatility slot Wild Hammer Megaways has a slightly below average win potential of 95.78%, however, this is somewhat outweighed by the huge maximum win potential, sitting at 50,000x the player's stake.
Wild Hammer Megaways doesn't exactly offer anything new or reinvent the wheel, but that being said it's an incredibly strong game that has all the makings of a top Megaways slot.
If anything, this slot is solid proof that a game doesn't need to throw fancy new features and mechanics at players to win them over, it just needs to be well designed with lots of time, love and effort put into its production.
