Update 21/01/2016: Out now for you to play online or on mobile at Leo Vegas casino »
Mobile slot machines, at heart, are all rather simple; spin and find out if you've won. But what if we told you that IGT's upcoming Nordic Heroes slot tries to do things a little differently?
Due to come out on the 28th of January 2016 at both online and mobile casinos, we had to do quite a bit of research when we found out about all the features available.
And there’s quite a few of them; including one that allows you to level up, open up new characters, new landscapes, and more importantly, bigger wins.
It’s not a unique concept by any means, but it is one that’s been lacking from the IGT slots portfolio.
IGT slot games, on the other hand, are all about giving players value and ensuring that any machine they create is always more slot than game app; which is good news for us.
Quite a bit actually, thanks in part to the kind folks over at IGT who are always more than happy to give us as much information as possible regarding their casino games.
To give you a brief overview of this Nordic Heroes game:
Those are the main selling points. But what does it mean, and will it make for a great game?

Because that we can judge to our hearts content, seeing as it’s the one thing we know for sure.
It’s basically IGT doing their own version of Dungeons and Dragons, with a Viking Twist. The graphics looks as pretty and realistic as you can get, for a fantasy game about elves and far away lands.
Honestly, we don’t know a huge amount about it; which is shame on us as technically this is not the first time IGT have used it in their slot games.
Once upon a time, when IGT owned the Monopoly brand license, they created the Monopoly Plus online slot.
However, the license ran out, and Williams Interactive got the brand in their portfolio, which meant that IGT had to shut down all their Monopoly slot games.
And guess who never played the Monopoly Plus game?
Look, you can’t blame us. Do you know how many slot machines come out each day, online and on mobile? This one was old, so no, we never got round to trying it.

The thing is, from what we can tell, Monopoly Plus was a hit. Which is why, no doubt, the Nordic Heroes slot game was born; one is down, a new one pops up to use the same great mechanics to replace it.
The king is dead, long live the king!
Needless to say, this time around we will be paying much closer attention.
But, if this game is as good as we think it’s going to be, it should still be very playable even when you haven’t unlocked all the levels.
Because, you still get great features as you play, simply that the more you play, the more features you unlock; much like how the Thunderstruck II slot is still very playable, with lots of decent wins, but just gets your heart racing that little bit faster the more you play.
It will require some of your time, but on the other hand, a good mobile IGT game can pay out big at any point, which means it won’t rely on levels to pay out more.
The good news is that it will remember you when you come to log in again, meaning you don’t have to try and unlock everything in one night.
Look, we know everyone will be dazzled by the background, being able to collect different weapons, which will allow you to kill more monsters in the bonus etc…
That’s part of the fun sure.
But the most interesting part of the Level Up Plus is the mystery multiplier.
Much like in their recent, and brilliant, release, Sherlock Holmes slot, during any spin you can get a random multiplier added to your wins.
The Level Up Plus feature increases that multiplier; the range is somewhere between 2x to 30x, but in order to get that really big multiplier, we suspect you’ll have to climb a few levels.
There’s plenty of good ones around, so choice shouldn’t be a problem – you can have a look at all of our IGT mobile casinos if you follow the link and scroll down.
But the one that’s usually pretty good at making sure they get the latest release on the day, in this case the 28th of January, will be Casumo Casino.
They also give you a huge welcome bonus of £€1,200 over 5 deposits + 200 free spins; keeping you well entertained till then.
If you fancy experiencing some great IGT games, we’d recommend you start with last month’s awesome release, the Family Guy slot, which comes jam packed with bonus games.Start Playing at Casumo »
