Aurora Slot Review

Here comes Aurora, a majestic collaboration between Northern Lights Gaming and Relax Gaming. The mystical game features elaborate visuals, exciting gameplay, and modern mechanics, all combined in order to create an unforgettable experience!

The story takes place in a forest opening, a lowered area between two hills full of trees. The otherwise dull landscape is illuminated by the moon and the aurora lights as well as dozens of fireflies passing by. The logo of the game can be found at the center top part of the screen. Adding to the whole atmosphere, a subtle serene tune plays in the background.

Moving on to the mechanics, all the reels start spinning simultaneously and come to rest individually in consecutive fashion.

If you’re looking for something similar then we’d probably go with “Aurora Wilds”, a slot by Microgaming that shares many core elements with the game in question. Now, without further ado, let’s take a look at how Aurora works!

How to Play Aurora

The game consists of 3 rows and 5 reels with 30 fixed paylines. The controls are found at the sides of the reels allowing the player to adjust the bet size, enable the autoplay function, spin or enter the in-game menu to tweak the sound settings, or check the paytable.

Regarding the stakes, bets start at $0.30 and go up to $42. That said, based on the casino you play at, you may be able to bet up to $3,000 per spin. Aurora is a medium volatility game meaning that small and large wins are equally likely to occur. The maximum exposure is 736x your stake with winnings capped at $250,000 while the RTP is fairly high at 96.09%.

Aurora features 4 low paying and 5 high paying symbols. The first come in the form of card values J-A followed by different animal totems and the logo of the game.

The game’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – The wild will substitute for all regular symbols.
  • Troll Wild – A special wild that works in the same way as the regular wild.

Game Rules

Aurora Features

The game might look fairly dull at first glance but trust us when we say that it has a lot going on for itself once you take a look under the hood. So let’s not spend any more time and start checking out all the special features.

The Troll

The troll is a 3-position high wild symbol and only lands on the middle reel. When the troll fully lands, the free spins bonus is triggered. If part of it is visible, then there is a chance that it moves up to be fully in view.

Random Bonus

At the end of a losing spin, there is a chance that the Aurora wind will travel across the reels from left to right, causing all symbols to rotate individually. On the flip side of every symbol, there is a wild symbol that could land at the end of the bonus. The wins are processed after all the symbols have stopped rotating.

Random Bonus
Free Spins Bonus

If 3 stacked wild symbols (via the random bonus) or a full troll lands on the middle reels, the feature is activated. The troll is awakened and the free spins start. In the beginning, the troll will either move a reel left or right or it will split, creating two instances of itself, one moving to the left and the other to the right.

When the reels stop, another full troll can land on the middle reel. Any time a full troll appears, the previous process is repeated. The trolls remain on the reels until they reach the edge of the screen, after which they disappear. The bonus ends when there aren’t any more trolls present on the reels.
