Sköll and Hati are famous figures in the story of Ragnarok, Hati, and others. The story of Ragnarok says that these two giant wolves will one day eat the Sun and Moon before sending the world into scary darkness. Yggdrasil Gaming has decided to investigate these claims further in its brand-new slot machine, Ragnawolves WildEnergy.
As expected, the storyline of this online casino slot machine revolves around the young puppies, Sköll and Hati, in their relentless pursuit of the chariots of Sól and Máni. In this Norse mythology-themed game, Odin holds the pups captive in Asgard because the gods fear them and their strong father, Fenrir. Odin then curses the young wolves before forcing them to follow the sun and moon eternally.
This thrilling slot action happens on 5 reels and 3 rows where players have 243 winning ways. The colored rune script characters are the low-value icons, rewarding gamers with 0.1x to 0.5x payout for matching at least three of them. The charioteers and the puppy wolves are the high-paying symbols in this game, with the Sun charioteer paying out the most at 2x the stake for five of a kind.
Interestingly, the game has two separate multipliers; multiplier wild and countdown wild. While each has unique qualities, they all contribute to creating additional winning combinations by substituting all other pay symbols apart from the scatter symbols.
Players can land the WildEnergy symbols, which house up to four lives. Players will then win a respin if the en symbol appears on a winning payline that has won. Note that this symbol’s life count, which drops after each respin, remains sticky the entire time. Also, the respins won’t stop until the player runs out of lives.
As that continues, players can land the Countdown Wilds on reel 2 or 4. These wild symbols remain sticky for 2 to 4 subsequent spins. Remember that when multiplier wilds appear on the center reel, all winning combos receive an ever-increasing win multiplier.
Players can also win 10 free spins if they find 3+ scatter symbols on the reels. The game’s wild symbols can appear during the bonus rounds, rewarding players with the same respins and features as the base game.
In some jurisdictions, players can use the Golden Bet option to pay an additional 10x their wager to ensure that a wild symbol appears on every spin. They can also purchase 10 or 13 free spins for 100x or 500x, respectively. However, the Multiplier Wilds do not reset after losing free spins with the Bonus Buy feature.
Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product & Programs at Yggdrasil, commented: “We are delighted to debut another fantastic GEM with the release of Ragnawolves WildEnergy. As always, we’re confident this mechanic will be well received by our player base and will help this new title onto sustained success in the coming months.”
