Time to head north to a frozen unforgiving land full of avalanches, but who knows? You might just find hidden treasure under this North Storm slot game.
It’s a little more subtle than it’s past casino games, with a nordic wasteland making you feel like you’ve just stumbled upon ancient ruins covered in snow and ice.
The colours may not pop, but with subtle stone greys, greens and golds, you are drawn into this ancient Viking temple as each stone falls onto the reels with a satisfying sound and animations that bring this video slot to life.
At first glance, you might think this is just a pretty copy of the Gonzo’s Quest slot from NetEnt. You have avalanching reels, where every win explodes and more symbols will tumble down from above. It’s like a mini spin on every win, and every consecutive win increases the multiplier.
The only thing fans of Gonzo may sneer at is the fact the multiplier amounts don’t seem to be as high. But you know what? That’s actually the strength of this North Storm video slot.
Because it’s a gentler machine than Gonzo, hitting both the multiplier and the free spins a little more often and allowing you to feel like their a faster, quicker beat to this machine.
During the free spin bonus game of North Storm slot, the multipliers are doubled.
We calculated that if you get the same symbol on all 5 reels and 25 paylines on the fourth consecutive win you could win as much as 20,000 times your bet.
The likelihood of this happening is low, of course, but that just goes to show that what they’ve sacrificed in the multipliers, they’ve more than made up with the paytable wins.
If the top win is that high, getting something closer to 1,000x your bet doesn’t feel so impossible.
This North Storm slot machine strikes a nice balance between giving you the wins that make you feel like those multipliers are doing their job, whilst still giving you hope of getting the kind of wins that gets you on the big win casino lists.
Our favourite Rabcat game so far.

Avalanching Reels and Multipliers: After any win, the symbols will burst and more symbols will drop (or avalanche) down from above. With each cascading win the multipliers increase:
Wild: The wolf is wild and can replace any other symbol to create a winning combination. It will not replace the bonus symbol.
Free Spins: The god with a helmet is the bonus symbol. You need 3 free spin symbols next to each other on a payline to trigger 8 starting free spins. Any additional bonus symbol on a payline adds an additional 2 free spins, up to a maximum of 20 bonus spins.
We were going to give this North Storm slot review 4 stars because we don't tend to like to give 5 stars easily.
But as we were writing this review, we genuinely couldn't think of anything we could put down as a negative.
So we figured, why be picky when we can be positive and enjoy a slot with familiar mechanics that just adds enough tweaks to make this interesting: a better paytable, more frequent free spins and a whole load more avalanches.
It might be one of our favourite avalanching reel slot next to Gonzo Quest and Pixies of the Forest 2 slot by IGT.
