Asgardian Stones by NetEntMythology is one of the most traditional and popular slot machine themes in existence, thanks to it’s rich and imaginative nature. We often encounter slots based around Egyptian gods or Grecian deities yet NetEnt have hit a little closer to home in their newest release, Asgardian Stones.

Asgard is the dwelling of the God’s according to Norse mythology, which hails from Scandinavia. This makes it the perfect place for the Swedish software developers over at NetEnt to explore and it certainly seems like they’ve done their heritage justice. The new slot not only looks beautiful but it’s packed with interesting features including colossal symbols, bonus rounds and more.

Gameplay

Asgardian Stones is a five reel, twenty payline slot from NetEnt. Although this means that it sports a quite conventional configuration, the base game comes with plenty of different gameplay features including colossal symbols, wilds and scatters. Asgardian Stones can be played from as little as 20p a spin, up to £200 a spin, and is available across all devices, including mobile, tablet and desktop.

As we mentioned in the introduction, Asgardian Stones is based around Norse mythology. Asgard was the home of the gods and sat upon a mountain top. In the slot, we can see the God’s palace in the background and the reels hang against stormy landscape. Symbols on the reels include stone carvings of Norse gods and traditional playing card values. Visually, the game is similar to one of NetEnt’s most popular titles, Gonzo’s Quest, so we’re sure that players will love it.

Graphics aren’t the only thing Asgardian Stones shares with Gonzo’s Quest however, as NetEnt have also brought back their successful avalanche feature. This means that when you create a winning combination in Asgardian Stones, the contributing symbols will explode, allowing new symbols to fall in from the top of the reels. This gives players the chance to win over and over again from a single spin, which makes for a thrilling and dynamic base game.

Asgardian Stones Paytable

Overall, Asgardian Stones offers players an exciting base game with interesting gameplay features and great illustrations and animation. Furthermore, the game boasts a healthy RTP of 96.31% and a maximum win of 2,000x your wager on any spin. This means that we’d classify it as a medium volatility title, so expect fairly regular payouts of decent sizes.

 

Special Features

Asgardian Stones comes complete with two bonus symbols, both of which are triggered by collecting colossal symbols in the base game. The colossal symbols can appear at any point, and any symbol aside from the wild can appear supersized. On their own these 2×2 or 3×3 sized symbols help players achieve winning combinations, but it’s when they activate a bonus round that things really get exciting.

Asgardian Stones Colossal Symbols

The Colossal Crush feature in Asgardian Stones is triggered when a colossal symbol spins onto the reels, but doesn’t have the space to appear fully. In these instances, the rows of symbols under the colossal symbol may explode to give way to the colossal symbol, and for every row that explodes you’ll receive an extra 1x multipler.

Asgardian Stones Bonus Wheel

Players can also activate the game’s bonus wheel when a colossal symbol appears on the right-most three reels. Once triggers, players are allowed to spin the wheel, which can reward you with cash prizes, extra multipliers or up to 15 extra spins. During the extra spins, players will also benefit from colossal wild symbols. These really help to increase your chances of creating huge wins and therefore the extra spins round is particularly lucrative.

 

Performance

As is to be expected from a brand new NetEnt game, Asgardian Stones performs flawlessly across all devices. This is in part, thanks to the HTML 5 technology NetEnt use, as this allows the game to be both quick to load and responsive on both mobile and desktop. Furthermore, it also means that the graphics are crisp and the slot benefits from enhanced sound effects, which is great as there’s plenty you won’t want to miss in this title.
