Hall of Gods is one of the most famous jackpot slots, which the amazing game provider NetEnt is the creator of. Even though the game has high standards, it’s relatively simply designed for being a NetEnt game. With that being said, you will in fact come across expanding wild symbols, a free spin feature with an added multiplier and a bonus game that could win you one of three progressive jackpots. The highest one of these three could pay out incredibly high amounts, which is what has made the slot famous and a popular choice among casino players. The highest jackpot that has ever been paid out is an outstanding amount of €7,8 million, which for most people is a win that would change their lives forever.
Hall of Gods is based on the old vikings’ belief in the nordic mythology where you in the slot will be taken to Valhalla, which is the place where all of the almighty gods reside and where no mortals are allowed. The background of the slot is made up of a wooden panel with the bottom section of it being covered with clouds. As the reels are located on top of this, it creates the impression that the reels are floating on the clouds. Behind the symbols that cover about half the reels, a blue/grey image of a viking ship and a huge ocean creature that’s arisen from the waters can be seen. The sound of ocean waves and a rumbling thunder is constantly being heard, even though it’s somewhat drowned by the reels’ spinning sound.
The five highest paying symbols in the game are represented by differents gods from the nordic mythology, such as Odin, Thor and Freya. There are also five low paying symbols which are represented by a chest filled with apples, Thor’s mighty hammer, a ring, an amulet and a pickaxe. In addition to this you’ll find a scatter symbol in the form of Odin’s two ravens Mumin and Hugin, a bonus symbol represented by Thor’s hammer being hit against a shield and a wild symbol in form of a dragon. The wild symbol will expand to cover all of the reel whenever it can be a part of a winning line and substitutes for all symbols, except for the scatter and bonus symbol.
Hall of Gods consists of 20 fixed paylines situated over five reels and three rows. The stake is easily adjusted by a coin value between 1 and 50 cents as well as a bet level between 1 and 5. This makes for a lowest and highest possible stake of €0,2 and €50.
If three or more of the scatter symbols represented by the ravens Hugin and Mumin appear anywhere on the reels, an exciting free spin feature is triggered. Three symbols will trigger 10 free spins, whereas four and five symbols will trigger 15 and 20. The free spin feature is played as usual, but with the added benefit of all winnings being multiplied by x3, except for winnings made from a bonus game being triggered during the free spins. The free spin feature can be retriggered by three or more new scatter symbols appearing.

The bonus game is the home of the jackpot that could forever change your life. To reach this bonus, three or more bonus symbols have to appear anywhere on the reels. In the bonus game, you’re given Thor’s almighty hammer and have to crush shields, which will then reveal certain symbols hidden behind them. Most of the symbols are coins with different values, but you may also find symbols representing the three different jackpots. Unfortunately, all jackpots won’t be available to win in the bonus game, but there’s always one of them that can be won. Shields are being crushed until you reveal three matching coin values or three matching jackpot symbols. When this happens the bonus game ends and the win of the three matching symbols is paid out.
The three different jackpots that could be won in Hall of Gods are all progressive ones. This means that a part of each bet that is being placed on every spin will be added to the jackpots. 1% of the stake will be added to the smallest one, another percent to the middle one and 5% to the highest.
As the jackpots are progressive the amounts that can be won are constantly changing. The highest jackpot is however on average paying €5.5 million and is on average won twice a year. The smallest amount the highest jackpot has paid out is €600,000, whereas the highest is an amazing €7,8 million. The middle sized and smallest jackpots are paid out a lot more frequently than the highest one, where the amounts paid out are usually somewhere around €10,000 – €100,000 for the middle sized one and €300 – €3000 for the smallest one.
The theoretical return to player (RTP) in Hall of Gods is 95,3 – 95,7%.
