Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand Slot Review

Vikings are objectively an over-saturated slot genre but this isn’t necessarily bad as the games can be easily turned into a fully entertaining experience with the addition of a few mechanics. This is exactly what NetEnt did with this one.

The story takes place outside a Viking village where stone slabs lead all the way into a valley and finally into a rolling tower. The reels appear as parts of the tower but this isn’t all as on top of the 3 main reels of the reel set you can also see a couple of symbols (or 1×1 reels) located at the sides of the tower. The logo of the game can be found near the bottom left corner of the screen written on a wooden sign.

For the most part, the game works like any other classic slot. That is, the reels start spinning altogether and come to stop individually in consecutive order. The game offers symbol transformation features which just adds to the overall entertainment factor.

If Vikings sound like something that’s right up your alley then we recommend you check out Microgaming’s Thunderstruck 2. That said, let’s focus on the subject in question.

How to Play Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand

The game has 3 rows and 3 reels but can increase up to a total of 7 rows during the bonus feature. The number of paylines can also increase from 9 to 29. The controls are found below the main reel set allowing the player to increase their bet size, enable the autoplay feature, spin, or access the in-game menu for further customization options.

Bets start at $0.10 and are capped at $200 per spin. Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand has a 96% RTP and a medium/high variance factor meaning that you will be constantly getting wins but most of them won’t be of a large value. Moreover, the most you can win is 435x your stake.

Symbols-wise, the game features 5 low paying and 5 high paying symbols. The first are represented by card values 10-A while the latter come in the form of a ham drumstick, an air horn, a female, and two male Vikings.

The slot’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – The slot’s wild symbol can only appear on the left hot spot reel during the free spins feature. It matches all other symbols on the main reel set.
  • Scatter – Represented by a hammer, getting 3 of these will trigger the free spins feature. 

Game Rules

Riches of Midgard: Land and Expand Features

Due to the game’s main 3 reels, it can take some time before you activate one of the bonus features as the scatter has to appear on the reels. Luckily, free spins aren’t the only feature this game has to offer. Let’s take a closer look at each of them.

Hot Spot Reels

These are the two single symbol reels. They spin together with the regular reels but don’t participate in winning combinations. They can, however, activate re-spins both in the main and bonus game.

Hot Spot Reels
Re-Spin

This feature activates when matching symbols land on both hot spot reels and at least two of the regular reels. All symbols that activated the re-spin expand to cover the entire reel they appeared on and are locked for the duration of the re-spin.

Re-Spin
Free Spins

Getting 3 scatters will activate the feature awarding 8 free spins. During the free spins, if a scatter symbol lands on the reels it will award  2 additional free spins and open up an extra row at the top or the bottom of the reels up to a maximum of 7.

Free spins can also be bought for the price of 80x the selected bet amount. We don’t recommend you do so as we only won 40-70x our bet in 3 test feature buys we did.
