Time to explain the set-up of Ring of Odin. With 5 coils, 3 rows and 10 fixed winlines, the screen is simple and clear. The rules of the game follow the same pattern. Winning combinations are formed by three or more matching symbols that land in any row of the 10 winlines. Symbols are all set in the time of Norse Mythology, with dangerous beasts and the god himself having their own.
It’s clear that Odin’s Spear, Gungnir, is the most profitable symbol. However, players should note that the indicated payouts are based on a payline with 5 symbols. For more information, you can press the info button of Ring or Odin.
Odin would certainly be proud of the sinister tone this slot machine emits. As an epic adventure from the point of view of the bad guy, you sneak through the game. An ominous soundtrack takes you on a journey with the sounds of a falling hammer as the background music reel after reel. #
Bets start at €0.10, but you can bet up to €100 if you like. Odin’s ring can be activated at any time and if you hit three Scatters, you immediately go to the free spins feature, where Odin’s ring is always present. For more information, see the special features.
Ring of Odin is all about the special bonus feature: Odin’s Ring. This one of a kind feature can be triggered in different ways.
Odin’s Ring can be activated at any time while playing the basic game. The ring appears in the middle of the screen and the coils start to rotate. The symbol that lands on the middle row of the middle coil is the random symbol. If this random symbol lands on one of the middle 9 squares on the next turn, you will get 1 free Draupnir re-spin, for a maximum of 9 free spins. Free Draupnir re-spins are accompanied by a full card of the original random symbol in the same middle 9 boxes.
To activate this feature, you need to find the Scatter Symbol three times. The Eye of Odin can land on reels 1, 3 and 5. When this happens, you will earn 4 free spins. If you find an extra scatter while playing, you get 1 additional spin. The exciting thing about this feature is that every free spin activates the Draupnir re-spin, so there are lots of chances for even more free spins!
Finally, we’ll discuss the best feature of Ring of Odin. A Scatter Symbol might land in the middle of the screen during Odin’s Ring feature. If this happens, you will not be redirected to the Draupnir re-spin, but to the feature with a multiplier.
Every scatter that lands in the middle here gives you an extra 1x multiplier, rising to a dizzying 9x! Pay close attention to how many times your bet is multiplied, because here you can win really huge prizes.
Even if it’s just about the winnings, Ring of Odin is certainly a satisfying game. A 5,000x potential for an online slot machine is very respectable. And if you have proper money management that allows you to play for a long period and activate the bonus features often, you will certainly walk away with a win. Of course, the RTP is 96%, so in the long run you will lose, but getting out early enough when you hit a nice prize has the potential to see you earning a lot of money.
You get the feeling that Play’n Go can make great slots with both hands tied behind their back. It might be because they produce so many games of excellent quality that it’s harder for a single slot game to really stand out. We’ve got nothing negative to say about Ring of Odin – the statistics are respectable and the game is pleasant to the eyes. But perhaps Play’n Go could have given the game an even better look if they had put in more time. Still, Ring of Odin offers good enough quality, just like we’re used to from these developers. Play Ring of Odin yourself to get your own dose of Norse mythology and maybe a euro or two at the same time!
