Hammerfall - Excellent medieval themed grid slot with a stunning large prize box wow! Where shall we start? It was Play’n GO that brought top class cluster pays slots like Wild Frames, Honey Rush, Rise of Olympus and of course the mother of kick ass cluster pays slots, Reactoonz.
The moment Play’n GO comes out with a new cluster pays slot, we always make a little dance of joy. We know that there is a good chance something beautiful has been made again.
Hammerfall is a tough, beautifully designed slot in which a number of knights with super powers claim the leading role. They can invoke their magical powers to activate all kinds of boosters and these can lead to beautiful payouts: the maximum win is no less than 30,000x the total bet.

Hammerfall's soundtrack is equally impressive: several original rock songs have been written especially for Hammerfall and that provides an extra layer of atmosphere. You feel that this is not just a lock. This is the real deal.
Hammerfall is played on a 7x7 matrix, which equates to 49 positions. You can bet from a dime per spin and that goes up to 100 CAD. The variance is high, but not extremely high.
The theoretical payout percentage is 96.20% as standard, but unfortunately there are also versions in circulation with significantly lower RTPs. Like all grid slots, Hammerfall works with the cluster pays principle and further with the avalanche (cascading) mechanism where after a win you get a free re-spin. It goes in circles like that over and over again.
The Purple Knight Mask is the most lucrative symbol. If you manage to spin a cluster of at least 15 symbols, you will get a 500x win. The other premium symbols are the yellow Shield, a pair of Hammers as well as a green Shield.
The Hammerfall logos (or letters) are the Wilds. We distinguish the purple colored (with multipliers) and the red colored.
In Hammerfall, you can take advantage of the many boosters that can considerably multiply your initial stake. The treasure chest shows itself at regular intervals, with or without the help of a nudge feature. The red chest feature is activated if the entire first reel consists of red treasure chests. All card symbols J, Q, K and A turn into treasure chests. The more the better.
The purple chest feature works the same, but is now activated with a full stack of purple treasure chests on reel 5. Now all high symbols turn into treasure chests. All the treasure chests on the screen then change to the same symbol, which in turn can lead to different beautiful outcomes. 3 scattered bonus symbols activate the free spins bonus.
However, it is possible to save a larger playing field and thus more ways to win. You do this by collecting crowns. Every time the crown meter is full, you will be rewarded with extra ways to win and 2 extra free spins.

Have you collected all the crowns? Then you have activated a total of 3,087 ways to win. After that you can collect even more crowns, but they can only collect extra free spins for you.
We think Hammerfall is one hell of an online slot. It has been produced to perfection, with beautiful design, a unique soundtrack and a wonderfully dark atmosphere.
The bonus features are also very clever: you can make a big hit during both the base game and the final feature. If you want to win the 30,000x the bet, you will have to experience a “perfect storm” during the final feature.
