We Explore the Trickery and Manipulation of Loki in the Tales of Asgard: Loki's Fortune Slot!
The Tales of Asgard: Loki's Fortune Slot is a forthcoming release from game developer Play'n GO and is due for official release on the 28th of October 2021.
Mr Green Casino will be adding this slot to their casino on the official launch date, with a whole host of new exciting slots from Play'n GO still scheduled to be released this year, including Legend of the Ice Dragon (04/11/2021), Rich Wilde and the Wandering City (18/11/2021) and what should be a very popular release Moon Princess: Christmas Kingdom (02/12/2021).
The backstory for Loki's Fortune sets the scene as follow,
Thor is about to be crowned King of Asgard – Loki has other ideas. Living in his brother’s shadow has left Loki filled with jealousy. In a bid to halt Thor’s crowning, Loki will use every trick up his shape-shifting sleeve - even if that means posing as his own father. This epic grid slot features Dynamic Payways which splits symbols on the grid multiplying the active payways. Will Loki get his way?
In Loki's fortune, you can expect trickery in terms of reel manipulation (increasing payways), along with added wilds and added scatters to make bonus triggers easier, with Loki standing at the side of the reels making sure to announce these when these unique features are occurring and how wonderful he is!
Tales of Asgard: Loki's Fortune - Base Gameplay
The Tales of Asgard: Loki's Fortune is a 5x5-reel grid video slot game, it uses a pay any way style payline structure, which means by default there are 3125 ways to win that, but this can increase up to huge 100,000 ways thanks to the special Split Mystery Symbols that Loki can manipulate on the reels.
Before you get too excited at the staggering potential, the symbol pays are very low, with the highest paying symbols paying just 2x stake for a 5 of a kind win, so these winning ways are pretty much essential for any big wins, or even the max win of 20,000x stake.
Loki is central to this slot, as you would expect from the title, sitting in his throne with the powers to manipulate the reels with three unique features triggered from Loki's Mischief, with added wilds, added scatter symbols and splitting ways the base game plays quite nicely with the chance of big wins, and frequent bonus triggers as a result.
Don't rush to mute this slot either, as the accompanying music adds to the immersion of this machine. However, the repetitive voice of Loki announcing the features can begin to grate a little after extended play. An option to mute specific parts of the game would have been an ideal compromise!
A key symbol on Loki's Fortune is the Mystery symbols present on all reels and can land on any spin.
These symbols act as blockers on the reels but land them in addition with a Wild Symbol or from an added Wild thanks to Loki, and they get converted into one symbol type of kind, in a reveal type nature.
The Split mystery symbols reveal two symbols instead of 1 and, as a result, increase the number of winning combinations drastically when multiple reels contain these mystery symbols.
The one caveat to the Mystery Symbols acting as blockers is that if a full screen of mystery symbols lands, a reveal will occur without the requirement of a wild.
Factor in that this will be an infrequent occurrence as the win potential from a full screen or mix of split symbols will be an instantly huge win regardless of symbol type reveal.
