You have 2 wild symbols to help you form winning groups in this game. Regular wilds are used for all symbols, with the exception of lightning wilds, which we will discuss in more detail below. Winning clusters are removed from the grid using the cascading reels feature and replaced with new winning chances that drop down from the top. This continues as long as you keep winning. Lightning Wilds are at the heart of this game and there are 4 of them displayed on the right side of the bar. One Lightning Wild will fly out of the meter and land at a random spot on the grid for each winning cascade, starting with green at the bottom. Wilds remain in place during the cascade but are removed with new paid spins. This game also has 3 random modifiers that can appear both in the main game and during free spins. However, only 1 will fire in one cascading sequence and they will play like this:
- Runic Shuffle – Triggered on random non-winning spins and shuffles all symbols for a guaranteed winning cluster.
- Ancestor Spell – Can be triggered at the end of the cascade and transform all low-value symbols into the same valuable low-paying runestone.
- Viking Sorcery – Can add 3 to 9 characters at random to the grid at the end of the cascade sequence.
To trigger the bonus round, you need at least 5 cascading wins in a row, which gives you 6 free spins. You will benefit from all 4 Lightning Wilds at the same time on every free spin, and they move to new random positions after each cascading win. Every time Lightning Wild is part of a winning combo, its multiplier is increased by +1 with no upper limit. There are no extra spins or re-starts here, so long cascades are your best hope.
