Ring of Odin
Play Ring of Odin on
Released on 16th April 2020, Ring of Odin is Play’n GO’s first Norse mythology-themed slot since 2017’s Viking Runecraft starring the Big Daddy of all the Norse gods, the father of the mighty Thor, Odin himself.
As well as siring the mighty Thor, Odin attained a level of wisdom and knowledge unrivalled throughout Norse mythology. Through sheer force of will, this guy not only hung himself from the great Yggdrasil tree and pierced himself with his own spear, but he also refused food or water for 9 days as he stared down into the Well of Urd looking for the secrets of the Runes.
Once the Runes revealed themselves to him, Odin could, among other things; heal the wounded, bind his enemies, put out fires, wake the dead and win over lovers. Still not satisfied he later gouged out an eye in exchange for even more wisdom and knowledge. The titular Ring of Odin was made for Odin by the Norse dwarves, the master craftsmen of the Norse cosmos.
Ring of Odin is a highly volatile slot which plays on a 5x3 reel set with 10 fixed paylines. You can win up to 5,000x your stake on this mythological monster which comes with a standard RTP of 96.2%. The biggest of those wins are possible through a variety of free spins and re-spins triggered either randomly or via the game’s scatter symbol.
You can play Ring of Odin from as little as €0.10 all the way up to €100 a spin.

Design & Symbols
Ring of Odin is yet another superbly crafted slot from Play’n GO with fantastic artwork, detailed symbols and superb animated segues between the base game and its various features. The opening sequence reveals an approximation of the Palace of Asgard, Odin’s seat of power set in a rocky, desolate, desert-like clearing.
The gameboard obstructs the palace during gameplay with only the rocky escarpments visible either side, leading up toward the dark, brooding skies above. A solid wood and stone structure frames the reel set with the game’s logo in gold above the centre. During regular play the reels float on a translucent background which turned to stone during the features.
Low value symbols are green, purple, blue, and red runestones. High value symbols are Odin’s wolves Geri and Freki, his ravens Huginn and Muninn, his 8-legged horse Sleipnir, and his spear Gungnir. Odin himself acts as the wild and he and his spear are the highest paying symbols, each awarding 30x the bet size for 5 on a payline. The scatter is Odin’s sacrificial eye which only appears on reels 1, 3, and 5.

Odin’s Ring & Draupnir Respins
Odin’s Ring can randomly activate on any spin. The golden ring hovers above reels before locking into the centre of the board while the reels are spinning. The ring awards one Draupnir Respin (Draupnir is the name of Odin’s ring). Furthermore, whichever symbol lands in the centre of Odin’s ring acts as the ‘chosen symbol’ for the respin. Odin’s ring expands to cover all 9 symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4 during the respin. An additional Draupnir Respin is added for every ‘chosen symbol’ landing on those reels. Up to 9 respins can be activated and throughout the remainder of the spins reels 2, 3, and 4 are filled with the chosen symbol, making big wins more likely.
Foresight Free Spins
3 scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 triggers 4 Foresight Free Spins. Odin’s Ring appears on every spin, activating Draupnir’s Respins, so 4 spins can end up amounting to considerably more.
Multiplier Free Spins
The eye scatters landing in Odin’s ring activates 4 Multiplier Free Spins. During the subsequent Draupnir Respin scatters can land on reels 2, 3, and 4. For each scatter, a win multiplier of +1x is added up to a maximum of 9x which is then applied to every win throughout the round. As with Foresight Free Spins Odin’s Ring activates on every Multiplier Free Spin.
If both Foresight and Multiplier Free Spins are activated on the same spin, only the Multiplier Free Spins are awarded. However, if Foresight Free Spins and Odin’s Ring are activated on the same spin then free spins will begin once all re-spins including Draupnir Respins have concluded.
Our Thoughts on Ring of Odin
Play’n GO have produced yet another high-quality slot in Ring of Odin. As visually appealing as ever, this slot has plenty of oomph both in terms of appearance as well as potential. It is also a very playable slot in that Odin’s Ring triggers often enough that you also get a decent bang for your buck, something which can’t be said for some of the volatile slots out there.
It is advisable, however, to still exercise some caution as Ring of Odin will rip through your bankroll pretty quickly if you get carried away.
As you’d expect, the free spins are not quite so easily triggered, especially the Multiplier Free Spins, where the big money plays. This can be an arduous process but for wins up to 5,000x, some might consider it worth the wait.
Play’n GO are on something of a roll of late with solid, enjoyable slots coming thick and fast in 2020.
