Odins Riches is an interesting game developed by Just For The Win gaming studio and playable on the Microgaming platform. Players may recall that Just For The Win is a newer studio that was established in 2016, but they’ve proven to be prolific, and they change their game styles regularly. Odins Riches is a grid-style game rather than a traditional slot.
Odins Riches is a toned-down game graphics-wise compared to some of Just For The Win’s earlier releases. However, it feels rich and indulgent, and the colours look elegant rather than dull. The soundtrack is fantastic and is suggestive of classic dramatic movie soundtracks, really immersing players in what’s happening.
Odins Riches has a bonus fill meter to the left of the game grid, and to the right is a golden Viking ship. The colours are muted golds and deep ruby reds. The low pay symbols are runes, and the high pay symbols are wolves, dragons, snakes, and ravens.

The animations for Odins Riches are subtle, but it does feel like runes are being thrown and then read with each round. The cascade effect is subtle but exciting, particularly as players watch the bonus meter fill and the music changes tempo to match.
Odins Riches has a lot of features, and they’re a little complicated, so let’s have a look.
Landing consecutive clusters of matching symbols will fill up Odins Riches’ Bonus Meter. All clusters must come from one sequence as the meter accumulations evaporate with each new round. Each winning cluster drops away and is filled with the symbols above, similar to other grid-style games. In slot, each winning cluster spawns a Wild that can substitute for any symbol. This can lead to cascading and consecutive wins that fill up that bonus meter quickly once some momentum builds.
If players manage to fill the Bonus Meter - which requires 125 symbols, they will win seven free spins. During the free spins round, one random mini-feature - described below - is set in the queue, and a 1x multiplier is added. If players collect 125 symbols in a single spin, they win three more free spins, which are added to whatever is remaining.

Each segment of the Bonus Meter in the base game selects a random Odins Riches mini-feature as it fills:
- Raven’s Flight removes diagonal rows of symbols from corner to corner and replaces them with three to five wilds, in addition to triggering a cascade
- Dragon’s Riches triggers a win with any five of the same symbol no matter where they are on the grid
- Serpent’s Wisdom will upgrade one random low pay symbol
- Wolf’s Hunger removes all low pay symbols on the grid and triggers a cascade.
Odins Riches is deceptively simple in appearance, while the gameplay is anything but. This is a game that will delight serious players as they watch the math model at work. It’s really fantastic as the Bonus Meter fills along with excitement and wins. The mini features are all unique and bring something different to the game as they play out.
Odins Riches has a minimalist backstory and graphics, but it doesn’t matter because it’s so much fun to play. Odins Riches is worth a look and spending some time and money on. Player’s won’t be disappointed and will stay longer than they intended.
