Review and recommendations from the testing team
- Northern Sky slot is not very popular among players, even with the fact that it has a higher payout potential than some of the more popular slots.
- This is most likely happening because, the slot doesn’t have very interesting gameplay, an only re-spin feature and free spins are here and do not have wild symbols at all.
- In the usual spins, any payment combination triggers the re-spin feature, they will be paid and lock in place. The non-winning symbols will be removed and new symbols will fall in their places. New symbols that are part of or make a new payment combination will pay and it will be re-spin again.
- Re-triggered spins with the replacement of symbols will continue until a new payment combination appears on the reels. A big plus here is that the symbols are not just gathered and paid at the end of the re-spins, but the combinations are paid at each re-spin, which can bring huge total wins. Most of the spins winnings are close to the bet size and sometimes reaching only several bets (while making some series of no-win spins) because of the small number of pay lines (there are only 9). Sometimes the slot still gives out bigger wins in the range of 20x-60x bets. While playing usual spins Northern Sky, have a good potential for triggering bigger wins, and during testing, it was possible to get 150x-230x total bets.
- Northern sky is very good when we talk about the triggering of the free spins, in this slot, there is no need to get 3 scatter in the same spin since in this slot they are collected during all re-spins. So, Northern sky can first give out only 1 or 2 scatter symbols and add the rest (to make 3) in re-spins. There is another very good thing inside free spins - only the most expensive symbols are part of them (animal symbols). Other than this the gameplay during free spins is no different from the usual spins of the slot.
- Even with the fact that in most free spins features the winnings are within 30x-70x bets, and less often within 15x-25x, Northern Sky slot very often gives out huge winnings of 100x-180x total bets, and the maximum payout was more than 300x bets (the maximum recorded by the provider was more than 400x).
Northern sky is still not recommended playing with bonus money, because the small number of pay lines, sometimes making a long series of spins without payment combinations and its bad balance keeping. While playing for real money, it is very effective to use a progressive betting strategy, while playing not only short but also a longer gaming session, waiting for the slot until it gives you a huge win.
Personal testers opinion
According to statistics, which I managed to collect during my testing, this slot machine can give the big winning, but most often they occur in the bonus game. My average payment was 86 coins in free spins. It is a good figure. Moreover, every 167th spin gives out the combination of 3 bonus symbols. Despite a lot of benefits, the only disadvantage of the online slot is a low rating to complete the bonus requirements. That's why, I give only neutral recommendations about the game for the real money; wagering - 4.79 out of 10.
