There’s only one week left until another Avalanche™ video slot will become at the NetEnt Casinos, bringing another exciting game. This time not inspired by a Spanish conquistador, the four elements, or Pyramids, but by Asgard, one of the Nine Realms and the home of the Asgardians in the Norse Mythology. Besides the Avalanche™ mechanics, the Asgardian Stones™ video slot will also bring Colossal symbols, a Bonus Wheel, Free Spins, and Wild substitutions.
The Avalanche™ feature
Once again, the Avalanche™ feature will become available in one of the NetEnt slots being the sixth game that has been enriched with the NetEnt creation. It was in 2010, with the launch of the Gonzo’s Quest™ video slot, that the Avalanche™ feature became available for the very first time.
Gonzo’s Quest™ was as innovative as can be and if someone would tell you the game was launched recently, you would believe it. That’s how far ahead of time the Gonzo’s Quest™ video slot was when launched in March 2010. This was all due to an incredibly original theme, cutting-edge 3D animations and the video slot features involved including the Avalanche™ feature.
The Avalanche™ feature replaces the traditional spinning of the reels whereby symbols fall into place instead of rolling. Symbols that make up a winning bet line disappears in a 3D explosion and the gaps they leave are filled with more falling symbols. As long as there are winning bet lines, there will be Avalanches.
So far, five NetEnt slots have been enriched with the Avalanche™ feature but it’s still the Gonzo’s Quest™ slot that’s appreciated most by the players at the NetEnt Casinos. No matter how cool the new NetEnt slot is going to look like, I don’t think that the Asgardian Stones™ video slot has it in it to beat Gonzo’s popularity. Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™, Elements: The Awakening™, Emojiplanet™, and Cosmic Fortune™ didn’t manage to beat the Gonzo’s Quest™ video slot either.
Each of the Avalanche™ video slots are worth playing anyway and the same goes for the Asgardian Stones™ video slot which will be available at the NetEnt Casinos from next week Thursday, the 22nd of February. From that moment on, you’ll be able to enjoy another Avalanche™ video slot in which the Avalanche™ feature will be combined with Wild substitutions, Colossal symbols, a Bonus Wheel, and Free Spins.
The Asgardian Stones™ video slot
Being inspired by Asgard, you’ll enter a truly mesmerising world, offering you an escape to one of the most mysterious places the galaxy has ever known. The Asgardian Stones™ video slot will be all about Asgard and the powerful race living on it, recognized as honourable and brave peacekeepers. Asgard is actually one of the nine realms within the Norse Mythology and home to the Æsir tribe of gods. While Asgard was destroyed during Ragnarök, it will be from the 22nd of February that NetEnt is giving you a chance to access this inspiring world anyway.
In a distant past, only the bravest warriors could pass through the gates and live among the Gods, but as we know there is always a way through if you believe… Follow your heart and find the way to the realm of the Gods in the Asgardian Stones™ video slot. To enter this world of untold riches and power, you need to beat the colossal giant stones carved in the likeness of the old Gods. Will you gain entrance or be denied?
The slot features in the Asgardian Stones™ video slot
Besides the next NetEnt video slot being inspired by the mysterious world Asgard, bringing another original themed slot to the NetEnt Casinos, you can also look forward to a great combination of video slot features. As mentioned earlier, there’s no doubt you’ll enjoy the Avalanche™ feature. This video slot feature will make every video slot worth playing, especially when combined with Colossal symbols, a Wild, a Bonus Wheel and a Free Spins feature.
It’s for the first time that the Avalanche™ feature and Colossal symbols have been brought together in a NetEnt slot. The Colossal symbols were seen for the first time in the Spiñata Grande™ video slot and now these impressive symbols have been used again in the Asgardian Stones™ video slot in combination with the Avalanche™ feature.
Coloassal symbols consist of either 2×2 or 3×3 symbols and it seems that all regular symbols can appear as a Colossal symbol in both the main game and during Free Spins. As far as I can predict after seeing the above preview video, the Colossal symbols will be responsible for the big wins and any big win will bring euphoria to the reels.
A Colossal symbol that won’t appear as a single symbol, is the Bonus Wheel. I assume it can appear anytime on the last three reels where it can award a bonus win or Free Spins.
In both the main game and during Free Spins, a pile of stones can be found on the left side of the reels which will be part of the Avalanche™ feature. The more consecutive wins, the higher the Multiplier with x4 as the highest Multiplier available.
I do believe that the Asgardian Stones™ video slot is going to be responsible for a lot of fun on the reels. An original theme, high-quality graphics and animations, as well as an exciting combination of video slot features is all a player is looking for so stay tuned!
