A trip north is the theme of this stunning online slot from Quickspin Gaming themed on the animals of the Arctic and the Aurora Borealis, more commonly known as the Northern Lights; it’s called Northern Sky and it has a soundtrack to the match the quality of the graphics.
Northern Sky is a five reel slot with three rows and nine paylines; shimmering colours form the backdrop to the spinning reels and there’s a huge conical mountain rising from a landscape dotted with trees.
All the symbols are in a crystallised form and the four higher value symbols include a deer, a bear, a wolf and an owl; red, green and blue diamonds represent the lower values. There are no wild symbols in Northern Sky but the snow-capped mountain is the bonus icon.
This is triggered every time you land a winning combo and those symbols involved will be frozen in place; there’ll be a payout for those matches and then the reels will spin again. If any more matching symbols land there’s another payout and another respin and this process continues until no more matching symbols land.
This is triggered by collecting three of the mountain bonus symbols anywhere in view and we say ‘collecting’ because they can be acquired gradually during the respin feature and you will notice the three mountain-shaped spaces on the left hand side fill up.
You will be awarded ten free spins which can’t be retriggered, nor are there any extra features or multipliers available, however only the four high value animal symbols are in play.
Northern Sky looks great, it sounds great and it offers some compelling gameplay; the Respin feature is triggered regularly to counteract the low variance of this slot. It’s highly recommended and comes with an RTP of 96.57%.
