Hammer Gods slot REVIEW
Hammer Gods ReviewA big highlight in the surprisingly popular Norwegian Netflix show, Ragnarok, was when they finally managed to forge Thor’s hammer in the “eternal flame”. While we’ve seen plenty of slots based around Thor and his infamous hammer, Mjolnir, Hammer Gods is the first release we’ve seen that’s based around the two siblings who’re perhaps most famous for forging that powerful tool/weapon.
The two roughneck brothers, Sindri and Brokkr, are found on opposite sides of the 5x4 grid, and they are standing by to forge winning combos for you via their respective Hammer features. Turning low-pay symbols into matching premiums, or premiums into wilds, is what these crafty, heavy-bearded lads are capable of, and their abilities can combine when you get a guaranteed Hammer feature per spin in the bonus round.

Hammer Gods Slot Features
The Wild symbol steps in for all regular pay symbols, and this can help complete winning combinations. The wild is also the most valuable symbol in the game, awarding 10x your stake for 5 on a payline. The regular premium symbols pay between 2 and 8 x your stake for the same in comparison.
The 2 blacksmith brothers you see on either side of the reels both come with a unique feature. These features trigger when you land a corresponding 1x2 size non-paying Hammer symbol. The reddish Brokkr Hammer can appear on reel 2 only, while the blue-tinge Sindri Hammer can only land on reel 4.
The Brokkr Hammer can trigger the Brokkr feature up to 3 times, before it turns into a 1x2 wild symbol. All low-value symbols are transformed into a single matching premium symbol type for starters. If the feature triggers repeated times, also lower value premium symbols are upgraded to higher value types.
The Sindri Hammer can also trigger the Sindri feature up to 3 times, and this hammer will also turn wild in the end. This feature turns all instances of a premium symbol type into wilds, and you can thus get up to 3 premium symbol types upgraded to wilds in the best case scenario.
You trigger the Bonus Round with 10 free spins when both Hammers land on the same spin. You cannot land new Hammers to retrigger the feature or get extra spins though, but one or both Hammer features are guaranteed to trigger up to 3 times per free spin.
The 200 Spins Hammer Gods Slot Experience
The two crafty siblings are patiently holding their hammers lifted, ready to strike at a moment's notice, and you get to see some base game grinding before we trigger the bonus round at the 1-minute mark. The feature plays out for the remainder of the 3:24-minute highlights video, and simply hit the play button below to check it all out for yourself.
It’s hard to grasp what Red Tiger has been thinking when they conjured up the math model for Hammer of Gods. The hard-hitting, ultra-masculine exterior is all but ruined by the wimpy 600x potential, not least when you factor in that this is a highly volatile game. In this day and age, when most players want high risk/reward heavy hitters, why not simply give people what they want?
Audiovisually, Hammer of Gods is excellent, although you might feel some phantom pains in your arm from watching the two roughneck brothers holding their hammers high for so long. The Hammer features tops you up here and there in the base game, and it’s fun when you get up to 3 of them per free spin. Sparks can certainly fly if the features combine, but it’s hard to shake the fact that 600x is the most you can hope for.
