Many slot games on the market are based around gods. But is there any god more fitting for a slot game than the god of mischief, Loki? We don’t think so. With some gods, you know they’re good. With others, you know they’re bad. However, Loki, he’s unpredictable, which makes this slot even more exciting.
It’s probable that the reason Lucksome, the sister studio of Blueprint Gaming, created this slot in line with the release of the Loki-inspired Marvel TV series, which shows they’re a development team tracking the latest trends. And, with Loki very much the star of the show here, you can expect to see him appear from time to time.
According to all things Marvel, Loki resides in Jotenheim, known as the icy home of the giants, and it’s what’s depicted in this slot’s backdrop. And, when you consider that Loki is thought to be the son of Farbauti, a giant, it makes even more sense that a lot of work has gone into the background design mentioned above.
Lucksome go with the standard setup in what is the third release from them – five reels and twenty paylines – and there are five rows, but proceedings begin with the top two iced over and not in use.
As always, and in typical Lucksome fashion, the betting starts at 20c with a max stake of €200 available. And they don’t scrimp on the bonus features either, as we will come onto in the next section.
As you will expect, Loki is the mystery symbol in this game, and it can convert into a money icon, which can trigger Lux Reels features. A symbol on the reels will also convert to a money icon if Loki and Thor’s Hammer symbols appear simultaneously.
Six money icons are needed to start the Lux Reels features, with three spins awarded to play on a grid that only displays money icons. The three respins are playable until they run out, but finding more scatters resets the counter. Loki landing will mean big money scatters, and unlocking the locked rows in this round is possible.
We have seen in other Lucksome titles that there are usually several options for a free spins feature, and when players have three or more tree of life symbols in view on the central three reels, this is precisely what they will get. But, instead of free spins, it’s the Super Lux Reels feature, where scatter values and multipliers will differ depending on the volatility package selected.
As well as the Lux Reels Features in Loki Lord of Mischief, there are several optional extras to keep things interesting and allow players to play the game in the most rewarding way. For example, it’s possible to pay to upgrade from Lux Reels to Super Lux Reels.
Lucksome Locks makes a return when punters have two of the three required tree of life bonus icons in view. For a fee, players can pay to spin the reels again to land the elusive third bonus icon. It’s also possible to pay to go direct to the feature and, when a win is landed, to gamble the prize.
