Stormforged Slot review

Stormforged offers an epic Norse clash between the primal forces of fire and ice. Open realm tears through the powers of the legendary world tree Yggdrasil and enter mythological realms of Muspelheim and Midgard. Collect Stacked Wilds and upgrade them with multipliers as you tear through the realms. 

Betting Options and Bonus Features

In Stormforged, there are several types of Wild symbols that can substitute for pay symbols to help complete or improve wins. The Hand of Surtur symbol triggers the Portals of Muspelheim, which creates Stacked Wilds. When a portal opens, it rips through pre-existing Wilds and multipliers ranging from x2 to x200. This multiplier will boost any line win that passes through it.

The Treasure Chest symbol unveils a cash prize when a portal cuts it open. Between 5x and 2,500x your stake. However, if the Hand of Surtur tears through both a Wild and a Treasure Chest, the multiplier from the Wild will be applied to the instant cash prize the chest reveals!

In total, Stormforged by Hacksaw Gaming features 3 bonus games that you are able to trigger; Surtur's Vengeance, Surtur's Fury, and Warriors Of The Storm.

The Surtur's Vengeance Bonus Round is triggered when you land Surtur symbols. You’ll need 3, 4, or 5 to receive 10, 12, or 14 free spins, respectively. The first Wild landing on any reel during the feature becomes sticky for the rest of the feature, with base game Wilds on the triggering spin also becoming sticky. Each reel is limited to only one Sticky Wild symbol.

The Ice Brand Scatter operates similarly to the Portal to Muspelheim. When it appears it establishes a Portal back to Midgard, while also cutting across Wilds and Treasure Chests as it descends to the grid's base. Gaining 2, 3, 4, or 5 Surtur symbols rewards players with 2, 4, 6, or 8 extra spins, respectively.

In order to trigger The Warriors of The Storm bonus feature, you’ll need to collect special Viking symbols. Collecting 3, 4, or 5 will trigger the bonus round and award 10, 12, or 14 free spins, respectively. During this round, the Hammer of Thor symbol transforms the reel it appears on into a Storm Reel for the remainder of the bonus round. Storm Reels are full wild reels that reveal either a Viking Warrior or a Storm per spin. 

If a Storm is revealed, the Wild reel nudges to the left, pushing other Storm Reels one step to the left as well. On the other hand, if a Viking Warrior is revealed, the Wild reel is upgraded with multiplier values between x2 and x200. Furthermore, landing 2, 3, 4, or 5 Viking symbols awards 2, 4, 6, or 8 extra spins, respectively.

Stormforged also offers a rich Buy Bonus Menu, with six options that allow you to increase your chances of winning by paying a certain amount.

  • BonusHunt FeatureSpins - Toggle to increase your likelihood of triggering a bonus game for 3x the stake per spin.
  • 2 Hands of Surtur FeatureSpins - Toggle to guarantee at least 2 Hand of Surtur symbols to land 20x your stake.
  • 3 Hands of Surtur FeatureSpins - Toggle to guarantee at least 3 Hand of Surtur symbols to land for 50x your stake.
  • Surtur’s Vengeance - Unlock this bonus game for 100x your stake.
  • Surtur’s Fury - Unlock this bonus game for 200x your stake.
  • Warrior of the Storm - Unlock this bonus game for 200x your stake.

The Surtur’s Fury bonus round is only available through the Buy Bonus option. It functions essentially the same as Surtur’s Vengeance but the difference is that you’ll have one Sticky Wild at your disposal from the start. You’ll also start with 12 free spins instead of 10.

Roshtein’s Take

Stormforged is a super intense game with countless features and so much action! It might look a little complicated at first but after a few spins, you’ll see that the game is quite simple. The portal feature is very well done and fits quite nicely with the theme. It's as if God of War Ragnarök had a slot version. Hand of Surtur FeatureSpins are a bit underwhelming though. Can’t say it’s a mode worth paying extra for.
