Nordic Spirit is another video slot that came out in brick and mortar casinos in the mid 2000’s. Developed by Williams Interactive Software, this slot has a quite a large following among casino players. Due to this popularity the slot is now being remade for online and possibly even mobile play.
This five-reel, forty payline slot has a few special features but not nearly as many as some of the newer video slots with their animated cut screens and second screen bonus rounds. What Nordic Spirit slot does offer however is free spins, win multipliers and wild symbols. The brick and mortar version of the game has two screens, the top one displaying the games title as well as the progressive jackpots that are tied to the game. The bottom screen is where all the action takes place, hosting the games five reels and animated graphics. The game also quite innovatively has a touch screen, which is not seen often in video slot machines.
Nordic Spirit Theme and Feel
The theme to Nordic Spirit is quite clearly one of Scandinavian countries, set hundreds of years ago, when Vikings still roamed the land. Like many WMS games, the graphics are very good, and are almost art works in themselves. This is no cartoony slot, and lives up to its name graphically. The background to the reels is a dark purple, which offsets the gold highlights found throughout the game. All of the symbols are beautiful, and you find yourself looking forward to the next one just because they are so nicely drawn. All player information is laid out at the bottom of the screen in a simple format that everyone will understand.
Nordic Spirit Symbols
Of course all of the symbols in Nordic Spirit slot live up to the theme. The base symbols are the usual ones found in WMS slots, which are the suites from a deck of cards. These are done in bright primary colours. The rest of the symbols include horses, falcons, jewels, drinking horns, raptor talons, waterfalls, volcanoes, mountain lions and of course our Norse Goddess herself. These symbols are beautifully animated, and when they form part of a winning set the reels just seem to flow like water.
Nordic Spirit Special Features
Nordic Spirit slot does have a few special features up its sleeve to keep the player interested. The first one is the games expanding wilds, of which there are two. Both the volcano and the Norse Goddess will expand across the reels to take the place of other symbols, except of course scatters or other wilds. These to can expand to take up an entire reel, which could net you pretty good wins.
The second feature is the games Free Spins round. This has three ways of being triggered. The first is by finding three scatter bonus symbols on the reels like in many machines at top casinos online, which will set off ten free spins. The second way is to uncover four scatters, which will result in twenty-five free spins, whilst five scatters will result in a pretty neat 100 free spins.
