Northern Sky Lights Up Casino Mate Online

February 7, 2018


The Northern Lights occur on the other side of the globe from Australia. Casino Mate will soon allow you to see them from your home. It will play host to the latest new online pokie from Quickspin titled Northern Sky. It will go live on February 13 and will be available on both the desktop and mobile gaming platforms of Casino Mate.

Northern Sky is a visually stunning online pokie for two reasons. The reels are transparent so you get a clear view of the evening sky in the background with layered Northern Lights. It is almost beautiful as the real thing. The crafting of the symbols is awesome. The high paying symbols are local creatures like elk, bear, wolf and owl. They are fashioned in bright colours and given a crystalline form. The imposing antlered elk awards the highest payouts. The low paying symbols are three coloured crystals. There is no wild symbol, but with only seven symbols the winning combinations will be more frequent. There are no scatter payouts either.

But you have two exciting bonus features. The first one is the Respin feature which is triggered when you get any winning combination in the base game. You would have come across online pokies in which the winning symbols disappear and are replaced by new ones. In Northern Sky, Quickspin works the Respin feature in exactly the converse manner. All symbols contributing to the win lock in place and the remaining symbols are removed from the reels. New symbols then replace them. If you land a completely new winning combination or add to a winning one then you get another respin with the additional symbols locked in place. The respins continue as long as you get a win. Each respin is part of the same spin. You do not pay anything for them.

The second bonus feature is a set of 10 free spins. The bonus symbol is a snow capped mountain peak that can be seen in the background to the reels as well. You have to collect three bonus symbols in the same spin, including respins. The number of bonus symbols collected is displayed in a bonus meter on the screen. There is no payout multiplier, but the free spins are played with all the lower value crystal symbols removed from the reels. Since you have only four high value animal symbols you should win more often and bigger amounts.

Northern Sky is a fixed 9 paylines online pokie with high volatility. Casino Mate is offering free spins on this online pokie from February 13 to February 15. You have to deposit at least AU$20 and will be awarded 20 free spins.
