This 2018 NetEnt release is one of the developer’s best creations to date. Based on the Norse Mythology, the Asgardian inspired slot is packed with amazing features, some of which are specific to NetEnt like the Avalanche feature first introduced in the popular Gonzo’s Quest. The fanbase for the Norse theme has grown substantially since its portrayal in the movie blockbuster series Thor. Players looking for more hammer-swinging action have an amazing choice in Asgardian Stones.
The game is a 5-reel, 20 payline slot, paying from left to right, with multipliers, scatter symbols, wilds and a bonus wheel. But it stands out for featuring Colossal symbols and loads of free spins that take your winning potential up to 2000x your stake.
How To Play Asgardian Stones
Set in a mystical world surrounded by stones and runes, your mission is to make your way through the Bifrost, break the giant Asgardian stones, and win riches beyond your imagination.
Coin values range from 20p to £200 per spin, and the game is playable across all devices. Using the Max Bet button, players can set their bet to the maximum on each spin, and with Autoplay, you can set the reels to spin automatically for a specified number of times.
To get a payout, land 3 or more combos of any symbol on the reels. The highest paying symbol offers up to 25 times your wager with 5 across a payline.
With every winning combo, the symbols explode and disappear while new ones fall to replace it in an avalanche motion. If another winning combo is formed, the process repeats itself, allowing you to win over and over. The avalanche reels allow for multiple wins on a single spin and the Wild symbol substitutes for all others except the Bonus wheel.
Asgardian Stones - Visuals And Sounds
Runes with ancient carvings backdrop the reels with an epic soundtrack that is reminiscent of the Greek gods of Olympus. There are eight game symbols in total. High-value symbols include the faces of five deities, including Odin, Thor, Loki, and two goddesses, while the lower value symbols are letters Q, K, and A all carved in stone. You will also find 2x2 and 3x3 colossal symbols that land on the screen and trigger a random Colossal Crush feature.
Asgardian Stones has quite a few special features to keep players hooked and take winnings to the max jackpot.
Except for the Wild in the main game, all symbols have a colossal version that appears on 2x2 or 3x3 reels. When the Colossal Crush feature begins, it crushes rows of regular symbols and can boost multipliers up to 4x. The multiplier increases if you land consecutive wins this way and the meter is shown on the left side of the reels. Once a colossal symbol explodes, it causes an avalanche of new symbols falling onto the reels. Only one colossal symbol can be present on the reels at a time.
The bonus wheel offers cash prizes and free spins and appears as a 3x3 colossal symbol. It can only land on the last three reels, fully or partially. When the wheel lands on the reels, it activates the bonus game and begins spinning. Where the wheel stops it reveals the prize that the player gets. The cash prizes from the bonus wheel are 1, 2, or 5x your stake and can go as high 36x your bet.
You get 5 free spins if the wheel stops on the free spins segment. There are three fields with free spins so you can win as many as 15 free spins during the bonus game. This is also the only time during the game when the Wild symbol can appear as a colossal symbol. The wild is then divided into individual 1x1 symbols, and if they take part in a winning combination, they explode and disappear. Otherwise, they simply remain on the reels. The avalanche feature cannot be activated during free spins, but players can retrigger the bonus wheel three times for a total of 25 free spins.
From stunning visuals to an immersive soundtrack and fantastically rewarding features, Asgardian Stones is a slot that can keep you engrossed for hours on end. The 96.31% RTP makes for decent returns, and medium volatility strikes a balance for both variance extremes. Plus, a high max bet makes the slot quite attractive for the riskier bunch of bettors. Not everyone likes Norse Mythology, but if you are one of the many die-hard fans of Thor and the Asgardian kingdom, you will get a real kick out of playing this slot.
