Net Entertainment’s reputation precedes them when it comes to producing some of the best online progressive jackpot slots, and Hall of Gods is certainly no exception to the rule. Simply put, the game is well designed, is packed with great bonus features and the jackpot prize pool sometimes reaches into the multiple millions. So, if you want to feel like you’re in control of the world and you’re after a progressive jackpot game that doesn’t have a poor return to player (in fact, Hall of Gods has an RTP of more than 95%), then NetEnt’s title could be the one for you.
As you may well already know, NetEnt are the largest provider of games in the United Kingdom and beyond, so the likelihood of you finding Hall of Gods at your online casino of choice is fairly high. To locate it, head over to your site’s Jackpot section and browse through the other games until you see Odin and company on the front cover. Firing up the game throws you up into the heavens as the title sequences play out in the clouds above the mere mortals. Once you’re into the base game, take a glance over the bottom third of the screen for all your controls. You’ll notice that you can adjust your Coin Level and overall Bet Level using the left and right arrows, or you can forego all that and hit Bet Max instead. To get the reels in motion, either utilise the Autoplay function or hit the main Spin button. Finally, when you get the chance, you can check the current jackpot totals by looking at the momentary messages at the top of the screen.
With a game based on the old Norse mythology, you can expect the reels to be dominated by the famous gods such as Odin, Thor and Idun – each of them have their own symbols that will animate in a godlike way whenever they are used to make a winning combination across the reels. Other old Scandinavian trinkets (think of the time of the Vikings) festoon the rest of the symbols with axes, hammers and rings, for example. And everything is set in the clouds, giving an awesome feeling of being master of everything you survey. And we must admit there’s nothing more exciting that when the gods are smiling down on your recent big play.
Of course, a game with such a grandiose theme needs suitable music to bring across that triumphant power and prestige. Therefore, throughout the game, you are treated to a celestial soundtrack that is full or soaring string sections, orchestral fanfares and plenty of brass. Whenever you spin the reels, the music changes to reflect the tension of what gods will appear on the reels this time – and it goes even crazier and grander whenever your big wins are being counted out in real time. So, we have to say that NetEnt has done a really fantastic job here.
A game based on the old Norse gods would not be complete without powerful symbols to completely change the game. Thankfully, NetEnt delivers again with Dragon Expanding Wilds that will cover an entire reel all by themselves and stand in for all the other symbols. That is, except for the Scatter and Bonus symbols. However, if you land three or more Crow Scatters across the reels, you will be given up to 20 free spins with a three times multiplier applied throughout. The Hammer Bonus round is activated when three or more of them land on reels three, four and five. You will be taken to a side game where you can use the hammer to turn wooden shields into splinters – matching three of the Mini, Midi or Mega symbols in this game will automatically win you one of the jackpots, so choose your shields very wisely indeed!
We have to admit that we had a hell of a lot of fun playing Hall of Gods, especially because those huge jackpots lurk behind the scenes at all times. It’s a fairly old game but today’s standards, but as you can see the decent RTP (for a progressive jackpot game) and the multiple bonus features makes it a popular draw even in the 2020s. NetEnt created a true classic with Hall of Gods and we highly recommend that you give it go at least once in your lifetime.
