Journey to Asgard in search of heavenly wins in the Wild Hammer Megaways slot!

Videoslots and their sister casino Mr Vegas have recently added the Norse mythology-themed Wild Hammer Megaways slot to the ever-expanding range of slots.

A complete iSoftbet portfolio of games is live and playable at their casinos, including fantastic recent releases such as Royale with Cheese Megaways Slot and the very popular Euphoria Slot.

In Wild Hammer Megaways, players must travel to Asgard with Thor, the God of Thunder, searching for “heavenly wins” in this latest Megaways game with the usual 117,649 ways to win, officially released on the 4th of August 2021.

Wild Hammer Megaways Slot - Intro Screen

The visual design is stunning, with the reels jam-packed with Nordic lore, characters such as Odin, Loki, Freya, the wolf Fenrir, and Thor’s Hammer Mjolnir (Hammer of the Thunder God) slamming down across the screen, signalling the start of a Bonus round.

The additional feature used on this Megaways slot is a form of Wild Replication that initially debuted in the Dragon Match Megaways slot.

The Wild Hammer Match feature works in the same way, with two matching symbols across the horizontal top reel set being converted into wilds and converting any matching symbols of the same kind in the main reels directly below them.

With maximum wins of up to  50,000 x stake,  thanks to a mix of Rising Multipliers and these Added Wilds, it is fair to say that this is a very high variance and volatile Megaways slot.

Wild Hammer Megaways – Base Gameplay

Wild Hammer Megaways Slot - Base Game

In Wild Hammer Megaways, you have an almost vanilla “mechanics-wise” Megaways slot machine with the regular up to 117,649 ways to win.

The usual cascading wins for winning combinations and wild symbols are only added to the reels via the Wild Hammer Match feature, which activates on the upper horizontal reel set above the main reels.

There is a Bonus Buy feature in countries where it is still allowed, which costs a premium of 75 x the current bet to activate.

4 different free Spins options are on offer with varying numbers of starting spins and starting multipliers along with a Mystery Choice option that acts as a gamble where you could get an even more potent starting bonus round i,e the combination of the Maximum number of starting free spins and the Highest starting Multiplier.

More on this later, as we gave this gamble feature a good playtesting to see how it worked and the results from all 4 options!

Free Spins and Bonus Features

Wild Hammer Megaways Slot - Bonus Info

Free Spins feature

Laning 4 of the Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger Free Spins, there is no additional scatters here, 4 is the maximum and requirement for triggering the bonus feature.

At the start of the Free Spins, you get to choose between:

  • 10 Free Spins with x1 starting multiplier
  • 8 Free Spins with x3 starting multiplier
  • 5 Free Spins with x5 starting multiplier
  • Mystery Choice can award either 5, 8 or 10 Free Spins with an x1, x3 or x5 Multiplier.

Any Bonus symbol landing on the main reels will add an extra Free Spin during the bonus round.

Wild Hammer Bet (Bonus Buy Option)

  • The Wild Hammer Bet costs 75 x Total Bet ( 1,500 coins) and acts as a Bonus Buy feature.
  • A Wild Hammer Bet spin is guaranteed to trigger the Wild Hammer Free Spins.

The Bonus Buy option is not available for players in the UK due to regulations of the Gambling Commission. For players where it is still an allowed feature, it will cost 75 x your current stake total to immediately trigger the free spins feature.

Unlimited Multiplier

An unlimited win multiplier is active during Free Spins with every cascading win during Free Spins, the multiplier will increase by 1x each time and this value is persistent during the bonus round.

Wild Hammer Match

This wild match feature triggers when two or more matching symbols have landed on the upper reel line.

The lightning bolts hitting the reels turn all these identical symbols and any instances of the same symbol type directly under them into wild symbols.

If any symbols that have been converted into wild symbols do not form part of any winning combination (generally on the reels to the right-hand side) then they will remain on the reels until all cascading wins have been completed.

Paytable

The paytable displayed below shows the premium win symbol payouts based on a €4 stake size, factor is that there are no multipliers being applied to these amounts in the paytable and you can quickly see how multipliers that reach well over 20x can produce some huge wins on this slot.

Wild Hammer Megaways – The Bonus Buy Playtest

We playtested the Wild Hammer Megaways slot using the bonus buy feature exclusively to full test the variety of free spins options available on this machine and to see how effective the Mystery Choice free spins option could be, given that you can win the highest number of starting free spins and highest multiplier combined when selecting this option.

Whilst it standard play the RTP is stated as 95.78% when using the Wild Hammer Bet exclusively then the RTP is listed at 96.71%.

Whilst 20 bonus buys are nowhere near enough bonus rounds to give you a full indication of the slots true potential, it is hopefully a fair reflection of the highs and lows you might encounter in a slot session.

If the aim were to test the validity of the stated RTP, then we would be looking at millions of bonus rounds to test it fully!

5 bonuses were played at each of the 4 different free spins options.
