Hall of Gods is a 5-reel, 20 payline video slot that was released in 2012 by Net Entertainment. The game is based on Norse mythology using various theme-related symbols during the gameplay. Using a Norse mythology theme in slots is not a new thing. We have seen plenty of games that used this very same theme. Games like Thunderstruck and Thunderstruck II, Viking Mania, Thor’s Thunder, and Dragon Ship come to mind, but many more slots have used the same concept to grab the attention of their players.

Hall of Gods has 5 reels and 20 paying lines with a minimum denomination limit ranging from 0.01 to 0.50 credits. The players can open a new payline for every coin they are willing to risk. The game comes with a progressive jackpot which grows every time someone, somewhere, plays the real money game. Once somebody wins that constantly accumulating prize, every Hall of Gods player around the world will be notified. If the player wins the jackpot in another currency, the amount of money they have won will be converted before it is added to the winning account.
Expanding Wild Symbols
The game uses some of the usual special symbols. The expanding wilds are one of those. This particular wild is represented by the Sea Dragon symbol in the game. Expanding wilds are different from the regulars. These symbols can substitute for other symbols too, but won’t appear on all five reels. The Sea Dragon can only appear on reel 2, 3 and 4. Once it does however, it will substitute and expand if it can create a winning combination. If it cannot, it will not expand at all. The Sea Dragon will replace any other symbols with the exception of the Hammer. It won’t trigger any bonus games, this will be solely the task of the scatter.
There are two scatters in Hall of Gods. One of them is represented by the Ravens symbols with the world “Scatter” on it. The other one is represented by the Hammer symbol, with the text “bonus” on it. As a scatter, the Ravens will not have to appear in line or even on an enabled paying line. They can, however, be part of winning combinations even from the opposite sides of the reel. It may not matter where it appears, but how many times it appears. The player need three or more of those symbols to trigger the game’s free spin bonus round. Just like the game’s wild symbol, the Hammer bonus scatter won’t appear anywhere. It will only appear on reels 3, 4 and 5. Just like with the Ravens and the free spin bonus, three or more Hammers appearing will trigger the bonus round.
Hall of Gods Free Spin Bonus
When three or more of the Ravens scatter symbols appear, the game will trigger its free spin round. The player will have a chance to win up to 20 free spins. That however, will already be determined by the time the round is started. If the player has spun three Ravens, they will get 10 free spins. If they managed to spin four, they get 15 free spins. Lastly, if they were lucky enough to spin five of those symbols, they get 20 free spins. The players can earn additional free spins during the round as well. This means that theoretically, they can earn an infinite number of additional free spins. Once the free spin round is over, the player is returned to the regular game. Their free spin winnings are then added to their totals.
Hall of Gods Bonus Feature
This bonus round is triggered when three (or more) Hammer symbols appears. This symbol can only appear on reel 3, 4 and 5. When three or more do appear simultaneously, the game will trigger the bonus round. The round itself takes place on a second screen. This is also where the players can win the game’s progressive jackpot. On the screen, the players will see various shields. By clicking them they can reveal what is hidden behind them. If the match specific symbols, prizes will be awarded. When they match three Bonus prize coins, they win the maximum amount of the bonus which is not equivalent to the above mentioned progressive jackpot.
The game’s progressive jackpot can only be won during the Hall of Gods Bonus round. The other criteria is that the player has to match three symbols. If both of those conditions are met, the players can win the jackpot. There are three different jackpots. If the players match three “Mini Jackpot” symbols, they win the least amount. If they match three “Mini Jackpot” symbols, they win the medium jackpot. Logically, if the player matches three of the “Mega Jackpot” symbols, they will be eligible for the full amount of the game’s progressive jackpot.
