Set upon a bubbling body of water and enclosed between some big rocks, Asgardian Stones is a Norse themed video slot developed by NetEnt. It has five reels and 20 paylines, with bets starting from as little as 20p a spin. You can expect to see avalanche reels, colossal symbols and crushes among other special features in this exciting casino game.
Floating stones and colossal crushes! Yes, you heard that right. There is something magical about this Asgardian Stones slot which keeps us entranced throughout. It is a joy to play, with the potential for some fantastic prizes. Let’s see what all the fuss is about, shall we?
Prepare to Play
All of the 20 paylines will be in play throughout, but you can change how much you wish to bet against these paylines. You can adjust the coin value between 1p and £1 for each of the paylines, meaning the minimum coin bet is 20p.
You can also increase the level of the bet between 1 and 10, which will add some extra weight to your entire bet. The value of the bet level will be multiplied by the coin bet for the paylines to decide your total bet.
The total bet is displayed underneath the funky glowing spin button beneath reel three.
Each of the faces on the stones of the reels has a different value. Match three of the same symbols on a payline to trigger a win.
All symbols in this game fall into position instead of spinning, and when you land a winning line it will start an avalanche!
The highest payout in standard play will be if you can manage to land five of the golden masked stone faces on a payline. You could be awarded 500 times your coin bet!
A feminine green stone with a golden gem on her forehead can pay out up to 300 times your coin value for landing five on a payline. The blue stone with a golden pattern on its forehead and a braided moustache can pay out up to 150 times your coin bet, should you land five-of-a-kind.
The purple figure can pay out up to 120 times your coin bet, and the grey-blue figure can pay out a maximum of 100 times your coin bet, both for matching five of the same symbols on a payline.
As we often see, the lower-value icons are the card values of Ace, King and Queen. Landing a possible full payline of the same card value symbols could pay out 30 times your coin bet.
A golden ‘W’ which looks like it has been frozen inside a glowing cube is the Wild symbol. This pretty stone can substitute for all standard symbols in play, helping to boost those wins!
You will notice that some symbols are more prominent than others on the reels. This is down to the colossal symbols, which can be either 2x2 or 3x3 spaces big. Having a symbol cover more than one area on the reels means you could only have to land one more symbol in the right place to win.
Colossal symbols can be fully or partially visible on the reels, and if even a tiny part of them is in a winning payline, the whole logo will be removed.
All symbols will then fall from the top to fill in the gaps, like an avalanche, creating space for more new symbols to drop down, too.
If from a previous win, there ends up being a space beneath a colossal symbol, the Colossal Crush will be triggered.
The colossal will fall and crush all symbols on the row underneath it, and it can continue until the crushing symbol reaches the bottom of the reels.
Each time the crushing symbol falls down another row, a multiplier is awarded! For each row moved, the multiplier increases by 1, up to a maximum of 4.
Another giant symbol to take over the reels is the Bonus Wheel feature. It is a block of 3x3 symbols and can only land on the three rightmost reels, either wholly or partially.
Once all avalanches and wins are complete, the bonus wheel will stop and can award three prizes; coin wins, free spins, or both, depending on where it lands.
From the Bonus Wheel feature, there is a maximum of 15 free spins on offer.
During the free spins, a Wild symbol could be a Colossal wild. If a Colossal wild is part of a win, instead of disappearing as it would in regular play, the rest of the Wilds will split up and stand alone as Wilds, still in the game. Any Wilds which are part of a win, of course, will explode and disappear.
The bonus wheel may be re-activated during your free spins round, up to a maximum of three times, in which case you could be playing for an extra 25 free spins.
Avalanches of Fun
Asgardian Stones has got such great detail in the design that it is a joy to play. From the cinematic video effect to the mystical floating stones to the side of your game, there is much more to it than just the symbols on the reels.
Expect to hear the crunch of the stones as they avalanche onto each other and look out for the enchanted kingdom behind the reels which you can get a glimpse of with each spin. The backing music gives us a buzz of something greater existing in the game. This, paired with the odd crack of thunder, is indeed enough to keep you on your toes while you play.
Plenty is going on with the bonus features to keep you entertained. Asgardian Stones RTP is a generous 96.31%.
