How Odin: Protector of Realms works
Far from the Nordic lands, Odin takes you literally into space this time, to Asgard to help him collect runes and divine weapons to charge his magical rings and defend his divine city. After a short and well done introduction, the Norse God himself explains the situation and steps forward as the saviour of his people.
Odin: Protector of Realms is a slot game developed and published by the online gaming provider Play'n GO. It has been available at most online casinos since 29 July 2021.
For those who are used to online casinos, this slot machine will probably look familiar to you. Indeed, it is based on a slot from the same provider, called Honey Rush.
Its payout ratio (RTP) is quite common at 96.4%, but the volatility has been lowered to a medium volatility compared to its big sister Honey Rush and its winning potential has been halved to a maximum of 5,000 times the starting bet.
The grid of this slot machine is therefore quite particular with a hexagon shape composed of 37 symbols. The symbols appear as they fall on the grid and the objective is to obtain clusters to validate connections. These clusters of identical symbols in adjacent positions allow for wins, but that's not all. Used symbols will be removed to get a tumble and possibly chain other connections.
Odin is by your side in this game to make your job easier. Indeed, although there are no free spins bonuses in this slot, at particular times, 3 different features can be triggered by the Norse God himself:
Wisdom: If a Forged Ring is obtained, this feature can randomly trigger before the Forged Ring is activated. The symbol placed in the middle of the grid is then changed to a premium or wild symbol. If that symbol is already a premium, it will be upgraded to a rarer symbol or simply a wild;
Power: If you are close to getting a Forged Ring (5 symbols missing or less) and no connection is available in this round, this feature can randomly trigger. 2 randomly chosen symbol types will then be removed from the grid to facilitate new connections;
Glory: If there are no paying connections in the current pay round, this feature can be triggered. Between 2 and 8 symbols from the grid are randomly selected to be turned into wilds.
The different symbols in Odin: Protector of Realms
In addition to the Wilds, there are 8 different symbols available in Odin: Protector of Realms which has no Scatter symbols.
They are divided into two categories:
High value symbols, also called premium symbols, are represented by Odin's hammer, his sword, a shield and a war horn. They appear more rarely, but pay a lot;
Low value symbols, also called common symbols, are represented by red, blue, purple and green runes. They appear more often, but pay much less than the above category.
Above are the potential payouts for each symbol based on the number of symbols and a €1 bet.
The different connections in Odin: Protector of Realms
There are many different ways to connect in Odin: Protector of Realms. Indeed, there are no predefined paylines in this slot. In order to get paying connections with the symbols that fall on the grid, at least 5 identical symbols must be placed on adjacent squares. This kind of group is called a cluster. The symbols used in a payout connection are removed from the grid to allow new symbols to fall from above and potentially create new connections.
The infographic below will allow you to understand more simply this system of connections with an example of a paying connection and an example where no connection is validated.
How the Odin: Protector of Realms bonus works
As previously stated, you won't find a free spins bonus as such on this slot. Like Honey Rush, Odin: Protector of Realms features a progressive upgrade system by collecting symbols.
Each symbol used in a payline is collected and fills the Forge Ring meter. At the end of each game round, the counter is reset to 0, so you'll need to make a series of connections during the same round to hope to discover the slot's potential.
These improvements are offered in 3 levels:
The bronze ring is obtained when 30 symbols are collected during the same game turn and it is triggered as soon as no connection is available on the grid. A cluster of 7 to 12 identical symbols is then created on the grid starting from the symbol in the middle;
The money ring is obtained when a total of 70 symbols are collected in one round and is triggered if there is no connection on the grid. A cluster of 12 to 19 identical symbols is then created on the grid starting from the symbol in the middle;
The golden ring is obtained when a total of 120 symbols are collected in one round and is triggered if there is no connection on the grid. A cluster of 20 to 37 identical symbols is then created on the grid starting from the symbol in the middle.
As you can see, the bronze and silver rings allow you to collect new symbols to potentially reach the famous golden ring. The latter has the possibility to fill the whole grid with the same symbol for an incredible potential of winnings!
Our review of Odin: Protector of Realms
Odin: Protector of Realms takes us into a mystical atmosphere that is very well done. The universe is excellent and makes it stand out from the majority of slots on the theme of Nordic mythology. The graphics are of high quality and Odin's animations are excellent.
On the feature side, everything seems to be reminiscent of Honey Rush, which is still a great success, but with average volatility and a reduced winning potential.
The more accessible volatility and the enchanting universe of Odin: Protector of Realms are likely to appeal to a very large number of players!
