Nordic Heroes Online Slot
The Nordic Heroes slot uses a lot of RPG (Role Playing Games) elements that are used in many of today’s PC games, central to the slot is a Level Up Plus system, as you play the slot and wager money you will earn XP (experience points) these are permanently saved to this slot at the casino you are playing at.
As you progress and earn XP (Experience Points) you will unlock various abilities for the Heroes which can be used in the Battle Bonus, as well as unlock new lands (which can be toggled) as well as unlock new characters in the game too, not forgetting levelling up your character too.
The most relevant part of the Level up system is that it will increase the slots RTP (Permanently) as you progress, features such as the Mystery Multiplier feature initially starts with a maximum multiplier value of 20x, as you level up this multiplier value can rise to a maximum of 30x.
There is a total of 8 levels to progress through as well as the character unlocks, skill unlocks and plenty more going on, check out the promotional video below for a quick demonstration of most of the slots features.
Nordic Heroes Slot Bonus Features
The slot uses a regular 5×3 reel layout and comes with 30 fixed paylines, there are a number of bonus features to be looking out for during the base game as well as the main bonus round too.
Mystery Multiplier Reel
The Mystery Multiplier feature can occur on the base game on any spin which doesn’t trigger the Battle Bonus, this adds a multiplier award for wins which initially can range from 2x up to 20x, of course as you level up by playing the slot the value increases up to a maximum of 30x.
Battle Bonus Feature
Landing 3 of the scatter symbols on the reel triggers the main Battle Bonus Feature, this is a free spins bonus round where after each spin you play your character will fight various opponents, using the skills you have currently unlocked in a random spin.
After each free spin in this bonus round the characters do battle, the bonus round continues until you have defeated 3 of the enemies or you lose all of your health, after which you awarded with XP as well as your winnings from the bonus.
Obviously the more you have played this slot the better skills you will have unlocked, character progression unlocks, skills progression and even the Battle Bonus features gets better as you level up, with later rounds (Sea of Glory) including wild reels.
The stated RTP (Return To Player) for this slot is in the range of 93.02%-96.34%.
Nordic Heroes Slot Overall Opinions
Definitely do not get overwhelmed with the amount of instructions for this slot, at the end of the day its a simple slot with bonus rounds and unlocks, one thing to note is it’s definitely a good idea to choose one casino to play this at, the XP and level up system is saved for your player account, so you should definitely focus on doing all these unlocks at your favourite casino that runs IGT slots as it will take some time to unlock the bigger and better features on this Nordic Heroes.
Overall an interesting slot from IGT, and something a little bit different on offer especially if you are a fan of RPG elements and game/level up progression.
