Asgardian Stones Slot Review:

Asgardian stones is a Norse Mythology themed slot that was launched in 2018. Maybe you wonder what the meaning of Asgard is? Asgard is located in the sky according to Norse mythology. In other words, the meaning of Asgardian stones is; stones from the sky!

Asgard is also connected to Midgard, which is one of the Nine Worlds of Norse mythology. However, what characterizes this slot, is the avalanche mechanism. It’s the same feature, which is used in Gonzo’s Quest. To find out more about the slot and whether the avalanche feature is successfull or not in this slot, read our full review.

Gamefield, symbols & more:

Asgardian Stones is a 5 reel, 3 row and 20 payline slot. The gamefield consists out of blocks, some of them are huge. In other word colossal.
On the blocks are the faces of Norce gods, this creates excitement. In the background, you can see mountain walls and runestones.

When the falling blocks disappear or explode you can spot a mighty looking Norse city far away in the background. The blocks, sometimes explode because of the avalanche feature.

This feature is used instead of classic spinning reals. When you receive a win or a winning combination occurs, “the symbols in that win will explode”. It means that another symbols will take the empty place. The process repeats until no more winning symbols appear. In other words, when winning combinations appear reels are free for fresh symbols.

Anyways, the lower valued symbols are, Q, K and A.
The more valuable symbols are the faces of norse gods. There is also a Wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus Wheel.

Colossal Symbols:

“All symbols in the base game and in Free Spins also appear as a Colossal version. (except wild in the main game)” A colossal symbol has the size of 2×2 or 3×3 symbols.

” During an avalanche, a Colossal symbol may fall in”. Once the huge symbol has been placed, any remaining empty spaces are filled with regular symbols. It’s not possible to have 2 or more of these symbols vivible at the same time.

Features:

Colossal Crush Feature:

After the first avalanche, this feature can be activated in in both main game and in Free pins.

These colossal symbols are either 2×2 or 3×3 and when they are a part of a winning combination, they explode and make room for new winning combinations.

The feature can crush extra rows of symbols underneath to show for bigger wins. For each row that is crushesd, the multiplier increases by 1.

 

Bonus Wheel Feature:

The wheel is a block of 3×3 symbols that, only can land on the last 3 reels only in both main game and Free Spins.

“Once all avalanches and win evaluations are over, the wheel stops. You can win coin wins, Free spins or both.

” The amount of coins and Free spins won in the active field of the Bonus
Wheel will be equal to the number of rows that 3×3 symbol covers, that is, +1 prize for each row.

The Bonus Wheel is not removed after the win, it means that there will be no avalanche after the win.

In addition to the Colossal Crush feature multiplier, the coin wins from the Bonus Wheel are also multiplied. The multiplier is not reset if there is a following avalanche. If the multiplier increases, the multiplier on the coin wins is increased further. When the avalanche stops, the Bonus wheel
coin win is evaluated.

” A coin win from the Bonus Wheel is 1,2 or 5x the total bet, with max coin win on 36x total bet.

 

Free spins:

There are 3 Fields in Bonus Wheel awarding 5 Free spins each. Therefore you can win either 5, 10 or 15 free spins.

In Free spins mode the Wild symbol can be a Colossal Wild symbol.

Tf you are lucky and a Colossal Wild take part of a win, it’s split up to 1×1 symbols.

If a wild symbol take part of a win, it will explode. Contrariwise, if a wild symbol is not part of a win it will stay on the reels and take part of the next avalanches until there are no more wins.

Verdict:

NetEnt is a Nordic company. Maybe it’s why Asgardian Stones, which is based on norse mythology is such a well-made slot. The graphics are stunning and  it’s a wonderful feeling to enter a world of norse mythology. The sound effects are crisp and of high quality, it’s enjoyable to hear the blocks both explode and fall.

The dark and uncanny background music is also very pleasant. Since the sound is, so appealing you should play this slot with loud sound! The slot feels mighty and the avalanche mechanicm is certainly a successful feature. However, it’s not as entertaining as in Gonzo’s Quest. The best with this slot, is of course to reach the Free spins mode. It’s not just the Freespins that are awaited, also the mighty special music played during the free spins mode is highly appreciated!

An awesome thing is that you can activate up to 25 additional Freespins in freespins mode. Maybe there could have been more than just free spins in this slot, another bonus feature would have been awesome. It should also be possible to win more than 25 additional Free spins.

The game was sligthly monotonous and boring the first times we played it. However, over time this mysterious slot has become better and more desirable! Asgardian Stones slot has actually become so entertaining that we almost give it a 4.5/5 star rating. However the final verdict is a strong four!
