Chart your path onto a wild adventure with the Nordic Heroes mobile slot. Just be prepared for a long journey.
This is a little bit different from your usual IGT mobile slots. It might not feel like at it at first, but you’ll notice subtle differences.
How you have a level at the bottom of your screen. How you can open up your character on the top left hand corner, read her story, and notice that you’ve only unlocked a couple of her weapons.
So what do you have to do in order to unlock the full Nordic Heroes slot game?
This is the major drawback of this casino game. When you first start playing, you kinda feel like you’re playing half a game.
Reason being, the return to player rate is lower at level 1 (where you start) than it is at level 8 (when you’ve unlocked everything).
So how long can it take to unlock all levels, characters, and features? Well, let’s just say… a while.
In a one hour session, we got to level 3, and then things slowed down. To unlock all the features will require time, cash, or a whole load of luck.
The thing is, even at the very beginning the Nordic Heroes mobile slot still feels like a beautiful IGT game, with stunning graphics and epic music.
The fact that you get a random multiplier in the base game, giving you up to 15x your win at any point during your game play.
And that’s just to begin with; at level 6 you get up to 25 multipliers and at level 7 up to 30x.
You need to be in for the long haul. There’s not doubt about that. The longer you play, the better your returns on this video slot.
Every new level you unlock brings new surprises, giving you the kind of choice and variety rarely found in slot machines.
It really does feel like a journey when you play this Nordic Heroes video slot, even if it takes several gaming sessions to get to the end.
At each turn you’re not quite sure what you’ll encounter, each level feels like a new step, and only those with the resilience, and patience, will conquer this epic adventure.

Wild Symbol: The symbol with 'wild' on it will replace all other symbols on the reels.
Mystery Multiplier: After any base game win you can trigger a multiplier. How much depends on the level of your character.
How to Level Up: This is the important part, and not immediately obvious when you first load up the slot.
Basically, every time you enter the free spins bonus, regardless of how much you win, you win 750XP. On your first entry, you'll immediately level up to level 2.
Then you'll need 2 entries to get to level 3, 3 more entries to get to level 4 etc...
Not easily done, as the free spins take a while to get.
Free Spins Battle Bonus: When you get the battle bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5, you trigger the free spins.
These are unlimited. How long you last depends on how quickly you defeat the 3 opponents on the reels.
How does it work? Basically after every spin, you attack a creature, and it attacks you. Destroy 3 creatures, the round ends, or die before you destroy the creatures, and the round ends.
It's all done at random, though theres not doubt that as you unlock the second character (the male) and unlock more weapons (by leveling up) your attacks get stronger and you tend to last longer.
At first, expect to play about 10 free spins, we've hit 20 or 30 spins further along the game though.
Bright side you do get extra features within the free spins themselves.
First you play in the forest of fortune, then on level 6, you can choose to play on the sea of glory.
Which should you pick?
If you defeat all three bosses, in whichever scenery, you win extra bonus spins.
Thora or Ragnar? Technically not a feature, but you do unlock Ragnar (the second character) very early on, when you only get to level 3. So which should you pick?
We've had better luck with the guy, but mostly because he tends to have bigger hits, so defeats the bosses a little faster, making it easier to trigger
That said, the elven princess does block characters attacks better, so the spins can last longer, but you rarely defeat all three characters.
Still, once you unlock them all, why not mix and match and see who brings you better luck?
We wanted to give this Nordic Heroes mobile slot 4 stars as the more we played the more we enjoyed.
That said, we did wonder, looking back, how many of us would stick to it to unlock the features, considering it's no easy feat. We had to in order to write this casino slot review, but many might soon fall short on this journey.
Still, this is not an aggressive IGT game, so you will be able to play for quite a while to get to the end of this journey.
And you'll be richly rewarded for your patience. The slot that awaits you at the end of your journey is as good as any IGT game we've played - maybe better.
Still, you've got to wonder if it's not simply easier (and faster, and better for the wallet) to play on something like their brilliant Sherlock Holmes slot.
