While the fantasy theme category seems to be oversaturated, Volsunga Slot is a worthy addition that punters wouldn’t like to miss.
This slot takes you into a dark mystical forest based on an Icelandic Saga. Volsunga Slot comes from Electric Elephant, one of the few lesser-known software developers making headway recently. You can tell that they put in a lot of work into developing the game considering its gorgeous visuals and a nice set of features.
The slot is set against a mystical forest illuminated by a full moon. The game plays on 5 reels and 5 rows with 40 win lines. The win lines can be adjusted to about 3,125 ways of forming winning combinations. Players could trigger a max win of 4,687x the stake using the bonus features.
How to play
Stakes on the reels start from 0.20 to 300 per spin. Once you’ve made your wager, you can press the spin button or set the autoplay function to take a spin in your stead.
On the reels, you will find symbols of 9-A playing cards which offer low payouts for winning combinations. You will also find symbols of a blue flower, a toadstool, eagle warrior, bear warrior, and wolf maiden. The wolf maiden is the best paying symbol in the game with up to 4.5x your stake for five of a kind on the reels.
Volsunga Slot is played on shape-shifting reels with shape-shifting symbols. Triggering different coloured moons will expand the reels and introduce new features into the game.
- White Moon: When triggered the reels will extend to a 5, 3, 3, 3, 5 grid with 675 ways to win
- Blue Moon: When activated the reels will extend to a 5, 5, 3, 5, 5 grid with 1,875 ways to win and will pay both ways
- Red Moon: When the Red Moon is triggered, all characters symbols will transform into their animal form and share wins. The reels will also be transformed to a 5, 5, 5, 5, 5 grid with 3,125 Ways to Win.
Volsunga Slot Special Features
There is no wild symbol, however, its absence won’t be missed thanks to the extra bonus features of the game. The bonus scatter symbol will trigger the free spins feature. The scatter is the best-paying symbol of the entire game with 30x your stake for five of a kind on the reels.
Landing 3 of the bonus scatter symbols will trigger 6 free spins. During the free spins round, the reels expand into a 5, 5, 5, 5, 5 configuration with all the available 3,125.
There is no jackpot on this slot but with lots of luck and a bit of skill, you can spin your way to a max payout of 4,687x your stake.
Return to Player
For a game with meagre payout in the base game area, Volsunga Slot is a high volatile slot that allows you to land quick wins with a few spins. This slot has a Return to Player (RTP) of 97.16%.
A Return to Player (RTP) of 97.16% is not easy to come by in a video slot and for players, it usually means the best win with a few spins.
However, Volsunga Slot won’t offer the best payouts in the base game area. Your best hope is landing the free spins feature and triggering the max payout.
