Travel to the end of the earth to view the spectacular lights and see whether the local trolls will stack up to bring good fortune. These persistent little creatures will try their hardest to come together to create your jackpot.

Don’t think this is all there is to this chilly, illuminated landscape. Sometimes you can’t see good fortune - you can just feel it in the air. Perhaps the aurora winds will swoop in to save the day if things don’t go your way the first time around.

Northern Lights Gaming slots are free to play in demo mode here at Slots Temple. We recommend this to familiarise yourself with the game before deciding whether to play for real at an online casino.

Theme, graphics & soundtrack

The colour palette for this game is fairly neutral, with some dashes of green, gold and purple thrown in to illuminate the backdrop.

The masks serving as game icons are a little sinister, but nothing too disturbing. They are very detailed and quite unique.

The soundtrack is atmospheric and whimsical, with some nice windy swooshes thrown in to further demonstrate that you are right at the earth’s extremities.

Bonus features

- Vertical trolls

The troll is a vertical wild symbol that lands only on the middle reel. If the full troll lands on the middle reel, the free spins bonus is triggered. If only part of the troll is present, you are still in with a chance of the full troll revealing itself as the reels move upwards. This handy character can also substitute for all the other symbols in the game to create winning combinations.

When the reels spin again, the troll will either move left or right or even split in two with one piece going each way. It is possible that another full troll could land on the middle reel. The troll pieces will continue working their way outwards until there are none left on the reels, which is when the bonus round ends.

- Wild symbols

If you land three stacked wilds, you can also activate the free spins bonus this way.

- Second chance wind

After a losing spin, all hope is not lost, as the aurora wind may travel across the reels, sweeping in from the left. This will send the reels into individual rotation. On the flip side of each piece is a wild symbol that could land at the end of the random bonus.

Once all the pieces have stopped rotating, any wins will be collected. These wilds can substitute for any other symbol.

Our verdict

In a world in which the best you can hope for in an online slot is a standard wild and maybe a scatter, Aurora and its expanding wilds bonus is a breath of fresh air. This great feature is executed elegantly and brings this coolly neutral game to life.

Similarly, the game’s other main feature, the aurora wind, is tastefully played out. Its random application gives the gameplay a suspenseful anticipation rarely present in online slots.

These two features alone make Aurora a must-play slot, even for hardened players.
