It’s been a while since we last had a Megaways slot. Ever since Big Time Gaming released this engine the demand for such slots has skyrocketed. For more than four years now, many different Megaways slots have graced our screens, some not so well made, some absolutely legendary. Pragmatic Play is a provider that loves to release the occasional Megaways title, so once more we must pass our judgement on a new slot – Power of Thor Megaways.
Old Norse mythology is one of the most beloved themes in slot gaming. No surprise, as some of the best iGaming providers come from the Scandinavian region. We’ve seen serious interpretations such as NetEnt’s Vikings or much more light-hearted games like Tiki Vikings. The power of Thor Megaways falls somewhere in the middle between the both, as we do get the cartoony Pragmatic style, but also the intensity of Vikings. Paying the respects to the mighty god of thunder, who else can bring the same vigour as the son of Odin? Sharpen your axe and grab your shield, we are off on a grand adventure.

Power of Thor Slot Review
Gameplay and Payouts
Just like any Megaways slot, the first thing you spot is the massive game layout, which is filled with many symbols. For Power of Thor, the layout can extend up to 6 reels and 7 rows. Straight away, Power of Thor Megaways brings a proper intensity, which the music reflects well. We seem to be located somewhere in Scandinavia, as the biome suggests. You can also spot a rune stone on the left side, which should leave no doubts about where we are. Power of Thor Megaways come with up to 117,469 paylines.
The symbols of the Power of Thor Megaways slot don’t provide the most authentic Viking look. To be fair, It looks more like a fantasy setting with dwarves and elves. Low symbols are simple 9 – A, but you can see rune writing inside these symbols, which is a nice little touch. Including Thor, we have 4 game characters. A shield maiden and two fellow warriors, which again, look more like dwarves then Viking warriors. From the graphical standpoint, symbols are well made and the quality is great. Power of Thor Megways also has a Wild symbol which appears on reel 2, 3, 4 and 5, on the top row.
On each spin, the amount of symbols you get on screen is different, hence also the number of Megaways. Like almost any Megways slot, Power of Thor comes with a maxed out volatility or as we like to call it, big risk big potential. Although if we compare the 5,000x max payout with some other Megways titles, it is not a staggering amount, still, more than decent. Other than that, we got a very acceptable RTP of 96.55% and a bet range of 0.01 – 20, which is perfect for smaller bets. Power of Thor Megaways is a perfect choice of mobile gaming as it is optimized well on both platforms.
We didn’t include Tumble Feature as a separate bonus, because all Megaways slot comes with this mechanism, where winning symbols disappear and then are replaced by new symbols within a single bet. Tumbling continues until there are no new wins. A more distinctive feature of Power of Thor is the Hammer Feature. For this, you need to look out for the Hammer Symbol. This symbol always takes two horizontal positions and it doesn’t carry any value by itself. When this symbol lands fully, all the symbols below it turn into Wild as Thor furiously beats his anvil.
The Vikings are the greatest plunderers, so Free Spins is the place, where you will want to make your fortune. You need to land at least 4 scatters, which will then spell the name THOR. For the base version, you get 10 Free Spins but every additional scatter grants +4 spins, so it’s possible to start the bonus with 30 Free Spins. If initially, you get 10 to 18 Free Spins, then Power of Thor allows players to gamble, for a chance to increase this number. Remember that a loss on a gamble will strip away all your Free Spins. During Free Spins every win/tumble increases the total multiplier by 1x. All other game mechanisms stay as they were. Free Spins feature can also be bought for a sum of 100x.
We are pleasantly surprised with the Power of Thor Megaways. Combining Norse culture with Megaways is not a first, but still Pragmatic pulled it off. The visuals perhaps don’t provide the most authentic Viking feel, but most likely that was not the focus. Otherwise, the slot looks and sounds great. For a Megaways slot, the 5,000x max payout may seem on the low side, but good wins come fairly frequent and the Hammer Feature allows for some big base game hits. All in all, Power of Thor Megaways is a great slot, with no significant drawbacks.
