Aurora is a pretty straightforward 5×3 slot with a few different bonus features to keep things interesting. You can play from between €0.20 and €100 per spin, giving you plenty of options as you try and land a big win.
Symbols range from four different masks, carved from the magical wood of the forest. These masks are the higher paying symbols, although the highest paying in the game is the Aurora symbol. Finally, there are the low paying symbols, the often-seen card royals from A-J. Thirty different paylines in the game mean you can win in a variety of ways.
Symbols in the game are stacked, which often means that although wins are rarer, they tend to be a lot bigger. On top of the standard paying symbols, you’ll also find wilds in the game. These are shown as big glowing Ws and substitute for any other symbol.
At the end of each losing spin, there’s a chance a gust of wind blows across the grid. This welcome breeze can rotate symbols, turning them into wilds. The final Aurora bonus feature is the legendary mountain troll.
This unfortunate looking creature occupies the middle reel, and while he may look pretty terrifying, his appearance can only be a good thing. He’s three rows high, meaning he takes up the entire reel. If he’s only partially visible, he’ll nudge into view.
Having the mountain troll in full view triggers the Aurora free spins mode. During this bonus round, the troll acts as a wild and can move left or right on the grid, even potentially splitting in two. The bonus spins will only end when the troll has left the grid completely.
Aurora has stacked reels, wilds and free spins. The free spins mode can retrigger and also features expanded wilds.

Overall, Aurora may not be the most complicated video slot out there, but that’s certainly not a bad thing. We loved the charming design and feel of the game. The backdrop of the forest complete with fireflies and northern lights looks fantastic.
The gameplay itself is pretty simple and easy to get into. We especially liked the concept of the troll showing up to award free spins. It certainly makes a welcome change from the usual scatter symbols. Aurora is a great game that has a lot of potential to keep you entertained for hours. The only downside is the relatively small maximum jackpot.
