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 as a wolf, a bear, a reindeer, and an owl.
Along with different coloured diamonds, these critters 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.
One interesting aspect of this game is the respin feature. The other symbols are erased whenever you hit a winning combination, and the slot automatically respins. Because the winning combination that triggered the respin remains, you automatically get paid on it again and have the chance to hit other lines simultaneously.
So long as new combinations are hit, the game continues to respin, meaning you have the opportunity to run up the score.
Free spins bonus
Another fun part of the game is the bonus rounds triggered by three scatter symbols. Not only do you get ten free spins where you can sit back and let the money roll in, but 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.
Regarding animal rankings and how much they pay out, the bear comes next, the wolf, and the owl. As for diamonds, red is worth more than green, and they are both worth more than blue.
The background music is low key and quite enjoyable to listen to, and the graphics are 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 most slots do not have.
So, considering everything, this low variance slot by Quickspin is quite lovely, and you will enjoy it.
