New Slot Review Northern Sky
Today we review Northern Sky, an online slot machine from Quickspin. After their latest slot release Mighty Arthur, the provider will start the new year with a brand new casino game. Northern Sky is set in front of a gorgeous mountainous landscape with numerous forest animals filling the screen. This video slot has a release date on the 13th of February 2017 after which player will be able to play it, for real money, on Highroller or any other online casino.
Northern Sky Slot - Description
To review Northern Sky we start with its 5 reels and 9 paylines. Moreover, the min and max bet range from 0.10 to 100 per spin. The casino game has medium volatility and an RTP of 96.57%. When it comes to symbols, those all relate to the theme. Thus they feature animals such as bears, deer, owls and foxes. Different color crystals make up the low value symbols. Furthermore, the scatter symbol is a mountain top which you collect on the bar meter at the left hand side of the screen. Finally the max win on any spin can go up to 3111x the total stake.
The Northern Sky online slot has a unique re-spin feature which triggers every time you land a winning combination. Here all symbols that contribute to the win will lock in place, while the rest of the symbols will be removed. Next, new symbols will fall in their place, and if any of them can contribute to the winning combination, then they also stick in place and a new respin is granted. In addition, the winning combo will pay after each re-spin. This can continue until no more contributing symbols land. Therefore, thanks to this feature can fill the entire screen with only one symbol.
Free Spins Bonus
To trigger the free spins on the Northern Sky video slot, you need to get 3 scatter symbols. Every scatter you land will get collected on the bar meter, and if you land more scatters during the re-spin feature they will also be added to the meter. Get all three and the bonus round will start. When the re-spin feature is over, the number of scatters on the meter will go back to zero. During the bonus you will get 10 free spins will low value symbols removed from play. Thus you will play only with the animal symbols, while the re-spin feature will also be active during these spins.
Northern Sky looks like yet another fun slot machine from Quickspin. We predict the game will be very popular with slot streamers due to the great winning potential it has. This is obvious especially on the bonus round which, thanks to the re-spin feature, can result in the entire screen getting filled with one high value symbol. Moreover the northern theme along with the soothing soundtrack make for an excellent winter slot. Finally, even though the provider claims that this slot is very volatile, from what we have seen, we are a bit skeptical. Therefore, until it’s release on Highroller casino, we will put the Northern Sky slot on the medium specter of volatility.
