BGaming, the developer of award-winning Online Casino slots, has announced a thrilling trip back to Ancient Greece to meet the hammer-wielding god, Thor, in the Gemhalla slot machine. You’ll see the “god of lightning and thunder” standing on the right side of the game board, below Thor’s magic tree of vitality.
Gemhalla transports gamers through the adventurous kingdom of Asgard, where they can match at least eight symbols on the 6×5 game board to receive a payout. The game has up to 8 bet lines, where players can match the coloured magic rune stones to receive a payout of up to 10x the stake.
You can also find high-value icons, including the axe, binoculars, beer cup, and Thor’s helmet. These symbols can reward you with up to 20x the stake. Remember, the game has the cascading reels feature to give you further victories after forming a winning combination.
Interestingly, Gemhalla doesn’t have the traditional wild symbol. So, to compensate for the lack of this crucial icon, BGaming introduced the multiplier symbols represented by wooden shields. These symbols can be part of a winning combination, rewarding you with anything between 2x to 100x the stake. Note that the symbol can drop during the base and bonus rounds, increasing your odds of hitting a 5,000x payout.
As that continues, players can sight the ship scatters anywhere to launch the free spins feature. In this imaginative gameplay, you only need to land at least four scatters to bag your 15 bonus spins, with guaranteed respins whenever you land 3+ scatters. Even better, landing 6, 5, or 4 scatter symbols will reward you with 100x, 5x, or 3x, respectively.
BGaming knows that some of you may not be patient to land enough ship scatters and begin the bonus rounds. Therefore, the game developer allows players to purchase a second chance to hit the scatter symbol for an enhanced experience, raising their bet by 25%.
You can also consider the Buy Bonus feature, allowing players to purchase additional spins for 100x the original stake. But note that these features may not be available to you in the United Kingdom.
The developer says players and streamers from the Scatters Club community gave their input on this new release while in development. The slot was released on June 15 to the general public after an exclusive 7-day period at Just Casino, LetsLucky, and Lucky Dreams.
Speaking while launching the game, Yulia Aliakseeva, co-CPO at BGaming, commented: “Players are at the center of everything we do here at BGaming so we were thrilled to invite the Scatters Club community to give feedback on Gemhalla during its development stage. The game is made even more special by their input and we know players will enjoy uncovering the many wonders of Thor and his kingdom.”
