Raven Rising Slot Review 2022
Join a group of Vikings as they make the journey from Midgard to Ragnarok in Quickspin’s latest release, Raven Rising!
A messenger of the Gods, a magical Raven is guiding a group of Vikings to their next desitnation, Ragnarok. Follow these seafaring pirates on their quest to release mystical energy from mythical stones along their path.
This energy holds a fraction of Thor’s power, the hammer-wielding God of Thunder. As long as you keep to the Raven’s trail you will triumph, but if you don’t chaos will ensue.
Raven Rising is a 5 reel slot that plays out over 20 paylines. Here you will play with proven features with a kick, including a progressive Multiplier in the base game, a thrilling Free Spins round and a cheeky Bonus Buy for those outside the UK.
Raven Rising starts off tame in the base game and becomes as volatile as Thor’s hammer in the Free Spins round. Are you brave enough to take on Raven Rising?
Let’s play on and find out!
Raven Rising Base Game and Features
Raven Rising is a 5 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbol type lands from left to right, starting from the left-most reel.
The minumum bet available here is £/€0.20 per spin and the maximum bet available is £/€100 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. Raven Rising has a theoretical RTP of 96.07% and a maximum win capacity of 6,804x.
Raven Rising features Cascading Reels. Each time a winning combination is formed, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels and new symbols will drop down from above. Once a Cascade occurs, there is a chance that more winning combinations will form.
In terms of symbols, the highest paying regular symbol in Raven Rising is Odin, followed by Freyja, Thor’s Hammer and an Axe. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen and Jack. There is also a Wild symbol present which substitutes for all other symbols except Raven Scatters.
During the Midgard base game, a Progressive Multiplier will come into play which increases by +1 after a winning combination is formed and a Cascade occurs. Once there are no more winning combinations present, the Progresisve Multiplier will reset back to x1.
In Ragnarok Free Spins, the Progressive Multiplier is increased by +1 for every winning symbol that is removed from the reels and does not reset between spins.
Raven Rising Free Spins
Landing 3, 4 or 5 Raven Scatters across the reel set triggers the Ragnarok Free Spins, awarding 7, 10 and 15 Free Spins respectively.
Before you can begin your journey through Ragnarok, you will be met with a Ragnarok Gamble feature. Here you will be able to Gamble your current amount of Free Spins for more, up to an extra 7.
The Ragnarok Gamble wheel features a series of Skulls and Ravens. Landing the cursor on a Raven means you have won the Gamble and your current Free Spins amount is increased. Landing the cursor on a Skull symbol means that the Gamble has been lost and you walk away with no Free Spins.
During Ragnarok Free Spins, the Progressive Multiplier will increase by +1 for every winning symbol that is removed from the reel set. Landing 3, 4 or 5 Raven Scatters during Free Spins, awards an additional +3, +5 and +7 Free Spins.
Raven Rising Bonus Buy
For those outside the UK, you may benefit from a Bonus Buy option.
Quickspin has granted players access to the Ragnarok Free Spins round for 100x your current bet, triggering this round with 3+ Raven Scatters. The RTP when purchasing Free Spins increases slightly from 96.07% to 96.57%.
Raven Rising: Our Verdict
Raven Rising is one of those slots that just catches your eye when you’re scrolling through the list wondering what to play. Its prominent logo sticks out as an inviting temptation for those looking for something action-packed, but does gameplay compliment its alluring aesthetic?
In Norse mythology, Ragnarok is said to be a series of events that tell of great battles and the destruction of the world, yet the Base Game seems a little calm. Could it be the calm before the storm? or is Raven Rising just not the end of gods and men as it was fortold?
Don’t worry, Ragnarok and all of the stunning and explosive visuals that you’d expect kicks in when it comes to Free Spins, and so does the explosive gameplay.
While Raven Rising does well to keep the player entertained in the Base Game with progressive multipliers, the ante is well and truly upped in Free Spins where a multiplier of +1 is added per winning symbol, rather than winning combination. For this reason, you’ll be on the edge of your seat as you sit in awe of multipliers unlike anything you’ve seen elsewhere, but the wins for lower paying symbols won’t be as huge as you’d expect them to be.
However, If you’re lucky enough to grow the multiplier exponential values of 100x+, then even the smallest of wins can glow up the balance quite nicely. When you’re playing at these levels, it truly does feel like you’re one big hit away from greatness, and one big connection of high paying symbols is surely enough to secure yourself a place in Valhalla.
At it’s maximum, Raven Rising is capable of 6,804x. It’s a formidable figure indeed, but given how big the multipliers can grow, we’d have expected a little more.
Overall, Raven Rising is a decent offering from Quickspin with some nail-biting moments, but a higher maximum win cap would have made it even greater.
