With phenomenal graphics and smooth gameplay, the Northern Sky slot by Quickspin (a subsidiary of Playtech) is a definite winner.

This video slot is hot off the presses, published on February 13th, 2018 and has an arctic theme as evidenced by the tundra backdrop and assorted fauna found in northern climes, such a wolf, a bear, a reindeer, and an owl. These critters, along with different coloured diamonds, constitute the symbols that you are trying to get runs of.

Gameplay and bonus features

You have nine different possible paylines that you can win on. The RTP for Northern Sky is 96.57%, which is not bad for a video slot, and you can wager anywhere from ten pence to a hundred pounds per spin.

Respins feature

One interesting aspect of this game is the respin feature. Basically, whenever you hit a winning combination, the other symbols are all erased and the slot automatically respins, and because the winning combination that triggered the respin remains you automatically get paid on it again, as well as having the chance to hit other lines at the same time.

So long as new combinations are hit the game continues to respin, meaning you have the opportunity to really run up the score.

Free spins bonus

Another fun part of the game is the bonus rounds that are triggered by three scatter symbols. Not only do you get ten free spins where you can just sit back and let the money roll in, you also get to play with only the higher paying animal symbols.

For example, five reindeer (the highest paying symbol) is worth 40 times your bet amount, whereas five blue diamonds (the lowest paying symbol) only pay out whatever you bet. In terms of animal rankings and how much they pay out, the bear comes next, then the wolf, and lastly the owl. As for diamonds red is worth more than green and they are both worth more than the blue.

Our verdict

The background music is low key and quite enjoyable to listen to, and the graphics are really nicely designed. Overall I found this to be a very decent slot, definitely a lot of fun to play, and there are some great opportunities to hit big scores. The only thing about it is that there isn’t a wild symbol, but this is made up for with the respin feature which I thought was quite neat as it is something most slots do not have.

So, considering everything, this low variance slot by Quickspin is really quite nice and you will definitely enjoy it.
