If the huge jackpot payouts over the past month were anything to go by, it would appear that the old Norse gods have relocated Valhalla, lock, stock, and barrels of mead, to a NetEnt online pokie.
Mythology-themed Hall of Gods, a 5-reel pokies game with 20 paylines, paid out not one, but two, fantastic jackpots in June. This brings the total amount of money paid out by the pokie to a whopping €57 million.
Anonymous Player Wins Multi-million Jackpot
15 June was the day an anonymous 47-year-old player from Norway made the life-changing decision to play Hall of Gods. Spinning the reels of the pokies meant that player was soon able to realise at least some of their dreams.
The video online pokies paid out a jackpot of €7.5 million.
Lazy Sunday Afternoon Jackpot
A player known only as Stephen from Birmingham, UK, reportedly opted to play the Hall of Gods mobile pokies with the intention of betting the same amount, as he would spend on drinks at the pub.
A social gambler, Stephen had no great intentions of winning a big payout, let alone a midi-jackpot of £76 160. He won the jackpot on a £1 bet, less than 10 minutes after he had started playing the game.
According to the young winner, he intends to spend his jackpot on a new car and on a holiday for himself, his mother, and her partner. He also plans to put down a deposit on a house.
Stephen said that he never thought he would win a jackpot, and that he had spent 5 minutes staring at his smartphone screen in sheer amazement.
A Look at Hall of Gods
Featuring characters such as Odin, Thor, Freya, and Loki, Hall of Gods has a number of bonus features. The imagery of the reel symbols is drawn from ancient epics, while the reels themselves are set against a typical Northern European scene.
The online pokies bonus features include the Thor’s Hammer bonus symbol, 3 of which activate the mini-game in which players could win one of the three jackpots on offer.
Odin’s 2 ravens, Thought and Memory, are the Scatter symbol. The symbol is able to trigger up to 20 free spins with tripled winnings.
The World Serpent is Wild, and can substitute for other reel symbols. It springs to life in animation when it helps form a winning combination on 1 of the 3 central reels.
With two big wins under its belt in quick succession, players who are looking for big wins will do well to give Hall of Gods a try, as you know what they say about 3rd time lucky!
