Home » Age of the Gods™ Norse — Gods and Giants Review (Playtech Origins)

An important announcement for the big win chasers: Playtech-owned Origins adds one more slot to the award-winning Age of the Gods™ series. After that glorious faceoff with the Griffin, they decide it’s time to turn to the ancient rivalry between the Norse pantheon & jötnar to jazz up what’s usually offered side by side with the coveted jackpot trio pooled between a collection of 10+ games in the line-up.

Playable with 0.5 to 300 units of any currency on any internet-supported device, Age of the Gods Norse- Gods and Giants is a high variance slot that offers a default Return to Player percentage of 94.38% with or without the progressives. A bit lower than we have seen with any of the other games, but the game compensates well with a well-thought-out giant symbol feature that collaborates with an unusually high hit rate to make unlocking decent base paytable payouts beyond easy. Sounds intriguing? Read on for more details.

Basic Rules & Game Overview

If you have played any Age of the Gods™ installment, you will know what to expect once the game finishes loading. The slots in this series have remained similar layout-wise, though completely different thematically each time.

Like the acclaimed video game franchise, God of War, Age of the Gods Norse- Gods and Giants is about the rivalry between Norse gods (Odin & Thor) and several jötnar/giants, including jörmungandr (the Midgard Serpent), Surtr (the Fire Giant), and Ymir (the Frost Giant). Expect to see them representing the paytable in that order alongside low-paying ancient nordic writings, which are done away with during the bonus round. 

As with all high volatility jackpot games, Age of the Gods Norse- Gods and Giants gives off the impression that there is plenty on offer other than the prizes flaunted at the side of the grid. There’s even a statement on the game’s menu that promises non-jackpot prizes of up to 50000 times your bet, which is unachievable here, to be honest. When it comes to base payouts, the best this slot can do is 1000 times your bet with an entire grid of wilds, but that is even highly improbable as wilds are not in the collection of symbols featured in the Giant Symbols Feature (more on that later). What’s more probable is having Odin’s symbols occupy all the reels for a much smaller payout of one hundred times your bet.

Wild Substitutions

Appearing alongside the giants and the gods on the reels are wild symbols marked (W), which can substitute for any of the regular payers to complete winning combinations. As already mentioned, they are the premiums, but it was quite disconcerting to see that they are not among the symbols utilized in the expanded symbols feature discussed below.

Expanded Symbols

Gods, jötnar, as well as scatters can show up as 3X3 symbols that have the potential to nudge to either occupy a bigger section of the grid or just for a position change. While 3X3 gods and giants award re-spins where more of their type could be landed for bigger payouts, the scatters award a couple of rounds on the house, where reels two to four and reels one & five land giant and stacked symbols respectively.

Jackpots

Using whatever you garner during normal-play to gain entry into the jackpot screen is all it will be about here. The premier jackpot is usually won when the value hits about €500000, the other two, €50000 & €1000 for the instant and daily jackpots respectively. Good figures but not as epic as those of other progressive jackpots such as Microgaming’s Mega Moolah.

Our Verdict

Age of the Gods Norse- Gods and Giants is your typical jackpot slot. Expect bouts of unostentatious good moments that are interrupted by high variance-characteristic moments of dead spins.

All up, this will be more of a contest between the jackpot chasers as they to walk away with one of the jackpots at their prime. Instead of caring about the games side show, it will be about hitting it big like that guy who walked away with over $1M with $1 per spin in play on Age of the Gods: King Of Olympus or nothing at all.
