If you are unfamiliar with Norse mythology, you are likely to be puzzled with the name NetEnt has selected for their recent release. However, a single glance will be sufficient to recognise the influence of the Scandinavian folklore in this 5 reels and 20 paylines video slot.
Using Asgard (one of the nine home worlds of Nordic gods, according to the ancient Scandinavian beliefs) as the slot’s framework, NetEnt delivers a true visual delight, once again making it rather difficult for other developers to compete.
With exceptionally well executed symbols inspired by the highest deities of old Norse religion, NetEnt goes above and beyond to provide a unique interpretation of this often exploited theme, presenting their players with a top quality slot, which has a flawless gameplay and offers no less than 3 different bonus games.
Launched back in 1996, NetEnt has gained a reputation of a serious software developer that has managed to firmly hold their position as one of the most successful and highly innovative gaming companies in the world.
This can be backed up with the fact that they are one of the first developers to re-design their current offer and create Virtual Reality variants of their most successful slots, proving that although they may be one of the oldest developers on the market, they are still more than capable of staying on top with current trends and technological advancements.
How to Play It
To initiate the game, players will first need to select the amount they are willing to bet on a single spin. The betting level is selected manually, using “-” and “+” commands. Alternatively, the player can click on the Max Bet option, automatically wagering the highest number of coins but keeping the pre-selected coin value.
The spins can also be automatised through the Auto Play button, located at the bottom of the screen, right next to the Spin command. The line is paid left to right and in accordance to the paytable for the highest combination only formed on a single line.
Asgardian Stones slot is extremely rich with bonus features and the developer covers pretty much everything when the in-game bonus offer is concerned.
Avalanche feature will be triggered immediately after a payline win, and the symbols that form the winning combo will be blown out and replaced with other icons, falling down in an avalanche-like manner, replacing the disappearing symbols. Avalanche mode will last for as long as the winning combinations land onto the reels.
In addition to the regular symbols, Asgardian Stones also feature Colossal symbol variants, which are actually 2×2 and 3×3 icon blocks and can appear on the reels either fully or partially displayed.
Once the Colossal Crush feature is unlocked (which can happen during the base game or while the Free Spins are in progress), all spaces under the Colossal symbols must be filled, otherwise the Colossal icon will fall down and crush the symbols below, awarding multipliers in the process.
Bonus Wheel is triggered with the corresponding 3×3 Wheel symbol, and each spin of the Wheel can award Free Spins or a cash prize. Free Spins can come in sessions of 5, 10 and 15 and the bet level is the same as in the triggering spin. During the bonus spins, the Wheel can be re-activated up to 3 times.
The lowest bet that you can place on Asgardian Stones slot is $0.20 and the stakes are capped at $200 per spin. Highest payouts are generated with the combinations of 3, 4 or 5 main symbols – Stone Masks – and within the Bonus Wheel feature.
The total payout one can expect from Asgardian Stones is 200,000 coins and the RTP percentage of 96.3% labels the game as a medium volatility slot.
Asgardian Stones slot has a lot going for it – stunning graphics (to say the least), plenty of bonuses and an extremely appealing payout potential. The Avalanche reels have become somewhat of a NetEnt’s signature feature, together with amazing visuals, interesting choice of themes and abundance of Free Spins.
The slot is of course compatible with mobile devices and you can enter the realms of gods using your smartphone or tablet, without missing out on any of the slots visual advantages.
