The land of ice and snow is a wild place, which this Wild Nords mobile slot shows beautifully thanks to 3 wild symbols.
Red Tiger Gaming have a habit of surprising us in annoying ways.
Mostly because, as any of our regular readers will know, we love free spin bonus slot rounds, and yet Red Tiger keep forcing us to like games which has none of them.
This five reel game is on the lower side of the variance scale; so mostly you’ll happily be spinning along, getting 5x to 10x your bet, hopeful that your casino balance will last you.
But what turns an ok phone slot into an amazing one is it’s ability to surprise you.
Like how you get 3 wild symbols, each with their animal totems. And when they show, turn those totems (the high paying symbols) into wilds and give you a re-spin.
That’s it. That’s the big feature in this Red Tiger Gaming slot, and it’s incredibly effective at converting you into full Viking Warrior.
And whilst the wild re-spin features are fun, and mostly what keeps you hooking, the big wins are the most unprediactable of the lot.
Namely because, out of nowhere, one of the three Wild Nord only slot symbol animals will lock in place, and add a whole bunch. It then get’s extra exciting if it also gives you a re-spin.
These are totally random mind you, so hard to build up the excitement. But we’ve seen win of over 80x our bet, personally.
Granted, it doesn’t have the same visual thrills as something like the Highlander slot by Microgaming, or even all the fun bonus feature animations of Lucky Little Devil by Red Tiger Gaming themselves, but Wild Nords still catches the eye.
With snow softly falling in front of you, and a Viking slot theme that feels true to it’s origins (no horned helmet in sight), this captivates all the way.
Add 20 paylines that pays left and right, as well as right to left, and what you have here is an easy playing, fun, quick action game.

Pay Both Ways: You will get wins on a payline whether the win lands from the left to the right hand side of the screen, to the right going left.
Bjorn Wild Nord of The Bears: When the Bjorn Viking wild shows on screen, he turns all bear symbols wild and gives you on free re-spin. If more bear symbols show up, these lock in place and the re-spins continue until no more bears show.
Rolf Wild Nord of the Wolf: Exactly the same as Bjorn, except with the wolf symbol.
Astrid Wild Nord of the Eagles: Exact same as Bjorn and Rolf, except with the Eagle symbol.
High Paying Sticky Wins: When one of the three animals appear on the side of the reels, the bear, wolf or eagle, you start a special spin of the reels.
Here you'll get more of that specific animal symbol show up, ie. the high paying slot symbols. You can then get a re-spin where any more of that specific high paying symbol will continue to lock on the reels, until no more symbols are found.
This Wild Nords slot machine on mobile has the audacity of just giving us wilds and few simple re-spins and expect us to love it.
Strangely we really did, thanks to quick hitting features and lots of re-spins, making us forget that it has no other bonus feature.
That's the wondrous thing about a pays both ways slot game - the quick wins, and the rush of seeing big symbols litter your screen, makes you too excited to care about anything else.
However, if you prefer your vikings with a little more blood and guts, we'd recommend you check out the higher variance Vikings Go Berzerk phone slot instead.
