Will the Norse Gods be able to match the conquistador on Gonzo’s Quest? Fans of the latter might not be that easily impressed, although the colossal symbols add another element of suspense to the gameplay. The win potential is medium at best but overall a well-designed game that should give you ample entertainment for your buck.
Crush mystical stones to reach the gateway to an otherworldly world on the slot from NetEnt. Deeply rooted in Norse mythology, Asgardian Stones comes with an Avalanche reel mechanic, colossal symbols, a bonus wheel and a free spins round that can lead to wins of up to 2,000 times your stake.
Asgardian Stones is a video slot with 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 fixed pay lines. Wins are awarded for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. You can delve into Norse mythology on desktop or mobile from 0.20 to 200 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility with an RTP of 96.31%.
Nordic mythology is prevalent in the visuals on this NetEnt creation. Featuring typical characters and items from the universe of the Norse Gods, the game window is set in front of Asgard, the mighty realm of the gods. Intricate Nordic graphics that extend to the pay symbols, elaborate animations and a stone falling soundtrack round off what could be a serious contender to Netent’s super popular Gonzo’s Quest slot.
All pay symbols can appear in single or mega block form, starting with stone-carved card royals from Q to A, awarding 1.5x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by five differently coloured Nordic Gods with the God of Fire being the top symbol. Hit five on a line to win 5x to 25x your stake.
The wild symbol is an intricate stone tile marked with ‘W’, performing the usual substitution duties. No scatters on this slot as the bonus feature is triggered by a giant 3×3 Bonus Wheel that appears on reel three to five only.
Asgardian Stones Slot Feature
Similar to NetEnt’s epic Gonzo’s Quest slot, the gameplay is evolving around the Avalanche reel mechanic. At the start of a spin sequence, 15 symbols drop onto the reels. All in a winning combo will shatter and new symbols drop into place for potentially more wins. The process continues until no more wins occur after an avalanche.
Colossal Symbols can land in partial or full view on any spin in the base game and bonus feature. Possible sizes are 2×2 or 3×3 blocks. The wild symbol will appear as Colossal Symbol in Free Spins only. When they land on an avalanche they will crush the symbols below them and in turn increase the multiplier on the left of the game window, which will be applied to the win in the following avalanche. Depending on how many rows the mega symbol crushes, the multiplier can increase up to x4. The multiplier will reset once a round concludes.
A giant 3×3 Bonus Wheel can appear on any spin in partial or full view, awarding up to three spins on the wheel based on how many rows are visible. The wheel will spin at the end of a spin sequence and comes with eight sections, three marked with 5 Free Spins or and five awarding coin wins between 1x – 5x bet.
The maximum initial number of free spins is 15, which can be retriggered up to a total of 40 free spins. During the feature, the wild symbol appears as a 2×2 or 3×3 Colossal Symbol, providing more potential for big wins. Once it lands, the wild block will be divided into 1×1 symbols and only those that are part of a winning combination will shatter, leaving the remainder for the next avalanche.
