Launched on the 22nd February, the Asgardian Stones™ slot was the fourth new NetEnt slot in 2018. That’s two new games every single month which is leading to a fast-growing portfolio. The Asgardian Stones™ slot is definitely bringing an original-themed slot to the NetEnt Casinos, inspired by Asgard, one of the Nine Realms and the home of the Asgardians in the Norse Mythology. The game itself brings players the popular Avalanche™ mechanics, Colossal symbols, a Bonus Wheel, Free Spins, and Wild substitutions.Thanks to its theme, you’ll enter a truly mesmerising world, offering you an escape to one of the most mysterious places the galaxy has ever known. In the background of the Asgardian Stones™ slot, you’ll find Asgard, one of the nine realms within the Norse Mythology.Located in the sky and connected to Midgard, the world of humanity, by the rainbow bridge Bifrost, Asgard is a truly magical place. Asgard is nothing like the earth and does not rotate about its axis, nor does it revolve around a sun. Instead, you rather think of a flat landmass suspended in space.
Asgard is the home and fortress of the Aesir, a powerful pantheon of gods including Odin, Frigg, Thor, Baldr and Týr. The powerful race living on Asgard is recognized by the galaxy as honourable and brave peacekeepers.
However, Asgard was destroyed during Ragnarök, a series of events, including a great battle, but thanks to NetEnt, we can still enjoy this inspiring place in the Asgardian Stones™ slot.
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 return of the Avalanche™ feature
While the Asgardian Stones™ slot brings you to the inspiring world of Asgard, the game has much more to offer than just an original theme. The gameplay is pretty interesting thanks to the return of the Avalanche™ feature which was introduced in 2010 with the launch of the Gonzo’s Quest™ slot.
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.
By 2018, NetEnt implemented this innovative slot feature in six games including Gonzo’s Quest™, Pyramid: Quest for Immortality™, Elements: The Awakening™, Emojiplanet™, Cosmic Fortune™, and the Asgardian Stones™ slot.
When it comes to the betting options, the Asgardian Stones™ slot is rather standard. The careful players will be comfortable with a minimum bet of 0.20 while the high rollers will probably appreciate the maximum bet of 200.00. In between, there are numerous possibilities available and the 10 different bet levels and seven coin values will be there to help you find your perfect bet.
Asgardian Stones™ slot features
Bringing the Avalanche™ feature, you can be sure of an exciting gameplay when opening the Asgardian Stones™ slot at one of the many NetEnt Casinos, but there’s much more to look forward to.
For the first time, NetEnt has combined the popular Avalanche™ feature with Colossal symbols as seen for the first time in the Spiñata Grande™ slot while a Wild, a Bonus Wheel and a Free Spins feature are available as well.
Colossal symbols are symbols much larger than the traditional symbols and can be either 2×2 or 3×3. All regular symbols can appear as a Colossal symbol in both the main game and during Free Spins. These Colossal symbols bring a lot of euphoria to the reels when dropping down, crushing the symbols underneath.
A Colossal symbol that deserves some extra attention, is the Bonus Wheel which in total consist of 3×3 symbols but can also appear partly. The Bonus Wheel can appear randomly on the last three reels where it will award either a bonus win or Free Spins.
In both the main game and during Free Spins, the Avalanche™ feature replaces the traditional spinning of the reels whereby symbols will fall down instead of rolling. Symbols part of a winning combination will disappear in a 3D explosion and the gaps they leave are filled with new symbols. As long as there are winning bet lines, there will be Avalanches.
Linked to the Avalanche™ feature, you’ll find a pile of stones on the left side of the reels. The more consecutive wins (Avalanches), the higher the Multiplier with x4 as the highest Multiplier available.
