There are lots of Nordic Gods-based out there, and aside from Thunderstruck II (which is almost certainly the most famous) they’re all vying for your attention, with very little to set one apart from the next. Unfortunately, Legend of Loki is unlikely to ever break that mould and become the Norse God game; quite simply, it’s as plain as the colour beige.
Set against a basic, cartoonish backdrop, the slot offers little when it comes to graphic quality. iSoftBet’s latest creation offers players 20 paylines across a standard 5×3 reel setup, and the chance to access a range of bonus features.
What Can I Expect from the Slot?
While the Loki featured in this game isn’t quite as handsome and charming as Tom Hiddleston’s portrayal in the Marvel universe, he’s probably a bit more accurate: strong, brutal, and clever, and he doesn’t make it easy to generate a big payout.
Realistically, the game’s biggest downfall is that its graphic design does nothing to set it apart from the reams of other, very similarly-themed slots. It looks okay, but extremely basic by 2018’s standards. We’d prefer to see some active background animation, or perhaps some movement from the characters on the reels – anything to add a little punch!
Legend of Loki is claimed to be a medium-high variance slot, with a pitiful maximum bet of $20. However, when we played, payouts were extremely rare without the benefit of being high value. Look out for Thor’s hammer and the game’s scatter, which offer the only real opportunities to make a serious profit!
What Special Tricks Does Loki Have Up His Sleeve?
Land 3 or more scatters in a single spin and you’ll receive 10 free spins as a reward. Before the spins begin, one symbol is randomly chosen to act as a sticky symbol throughout the free spins.
A random number of sticky wild symbols can appear during any spin, summoned by the power of Loki’s sceptre. This feature is completely random!
When you manage to land three identical symbols on reel 1, you will trigger stacked respins. The first reel will become sticky, with all matching symbols on the other reels locking in place. This bonus ends when no symbols matching reel 1 appear during a spin.
Overall, the game is not quite up to the modern standard. Sure, the bonus rounds are okay (if difficult to trigger) but the base game leaves a lot to be desired. We’ve got our fingers crossed that iSoftBet are working on some bigger, better projects, and released Legend of Loki as a filler until they’re up and running.
