Age of Asgard Slots
Featuring 40 paylines spread across five reels, Age of Asgard slots is a Nordic-inspired title from developer Yggdrasil Gaming. It is based on the Viking myths of legend and features a fitting visual design. The game is played on two separate reel sets, one for Viking heroes, and one for the monsters they battle. There are six high-value icons, made up of three female Vikings and three monsters, all of which stand three-reel-positions high and can land fully stacked. There are two wilds in the game, both of which are also three positions tall. This game contains a re-spins mode, as well as two free spins rounds.
When it comes to Viking slots, no one else does it quite like Yggdrasil Gaming, which makes perfect sense considering the brand is named after a tree in Norse mythology. The developers have given us loads of thrilling Nordic titles over the years and Yggdrasil is back with Age of Asgard slots. It’s certainly an innovative title, played over two-reel sets, each with their unique symbols. It seems like the developer wanted to craft something that really stands out from the rest and they might just have achieved that goal. There’s a plethora of bonuses to discover here, plus some truly epic visuals, so let have a look at the user interface first.
Visuals and Layout
Yggdrasil has done an excellent job of making this slot look the best it possibly can, with an array of visual effects that only add to Age of Asgard’s thematic qualities. With two distinct reel sets, you get a lot of aesthetic variety and it’s a delight to see so many well-illustrated symbols with different traits. The Vikings look heroic, clad in heavy armour and brandishing huge weapons, whilst the monsters are equally ferocious. It’s nice to see a developer try to add a narrative angle to proceedings. On top of that, there is a wealth of animations, with things like lightning strikes and whole new reels sets falling in from the sky. You can tell Yggdrasil has put a lot of effort into the game’s graphics and that surely won’t go unnoticed by prospective players.
You’ll find two separate wilds in this game, both of which stand at three-reel-positions tall, represented by a monster and female Viking. They will do the usual job of substituting for all base game symbols to form a win, but will only land on the three centre reels. They can also randomly ‘nudge’ themselves to cover an entire reel. If this happens, a re-spin will be awarded, with the wild stuck in place. Landing another fully stacked wild here will yield another free spin and – if you manage to fill the whole board with stacked wilds – the re-spins will finish and a payout, known as the Ragnarok Big Win, worth 960x your stake will be awarded. If you do this during the free spins round, this figure will be increased to 1,200x.
This bonus also relates to the wilds, as it will trigger when you get a Viking and monster wild on either side of a reel. Two, three, or four smaller wild symbols will then appear and, if they land in combination with one of the high-value symbols, it will turn wild and award a better payout.
To trigger this feature, you’ll have to land three of the free spin scatter symbols on either the top or bottom reels, for you which you will be given ten spins. You will be taken to a new reel set, but only symbols from the one you triggered the bonus on will appear on it. Both the Clash and Re-Spin features will remain in effect in this round, though their rewards will be enhanced. It’s a pretty basic round, but with the boosted bonuses, it can pay out some juicy totals if you’re lucky.
Ragnarok Free Spins
This is the second free spins feature in Age of Asgard and will require six free spin scatters, before it is activated. You will receive 20 free spins on a reel set exclusively made up of high-value icons from both of the base game reels. Any wilds you land will be automatically nudged too, which means the re-spin bonus will trigger and, as previously mentioned, fill the board with wilds, granting a sum worth 1,200x your stake.
The last bonus is triggered by landing three free spin scatters on either the top or bottom set, plus two more on the opposite. A wheel minigame will ensue, which will decide whether you enter the Ragnarok Free Spins round or a prize payout worth 50x your stake.
