Asgardian Stones: Slot Overview

We're just going to kick off by pointing out the obvious fact first. Visually, NetEnt has produced one of the most stunning video slots we've seen in quite a while. Booting up the game will undoubtedly cause one or two jaws to drop. But there are many amazing looking games out there that perform horribly and you can't build a long lasting love on looks alone so how does Asgardian Stones hold up?

As the title and theme suggests, the story of the game centers around Nordic mythology. Asgardian Stones is slot that utilises 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 fixed paylines. Similar to Gonzo's Quest, it features a reaction wins game mechanic instead of spinning reels. Symbols in winning combinations explode (are removed) and become replaced by a set of new symbols which then hopefully result in further wins. Wins are payed out if three or more symbols of the same kind, in consecutive columns starting from left, appear on a payline.

 

There are 9 symbols included - 5 of these are premium symbols made up of stone faces of various colors, with the red (orange?) one being the top payer. The low value symbols, meanwhile, are made out of A, K and Q royals. There is also a Wild symbol that substitute for all regular symbols.

 

Asgardian Stones: Slot Features

 

Colossal Symbols


All the symbols can also randomly appear as a Colossal version, both in the main game and the bonus. The Wild symbol however, can only appear as Colossal in the bonus. Colossal symbols are made out of 2x2 or 3x3 blocks and may or many not be displayed in full, depending on how they land on the reels. Sadly, it is not possible to have 2 or more Colossal symbols at the same time.

 

Colossal Crush


These are basically colossal symbols that have the power to crush the symbols beneath them, something that happens randomly. For every row crushed (if there is a previous win with the Colossal Crush), a multiplier is added going from x2 to x4. This has potential to result in some decent wins in the main game.

Bonus Wheel Feature

The Bonus Wheel is a symbol block of 3x3 symbols that can land on the last 3 reels only, in both the main game and bonus. It may land fully or partially visable in the play area which means only a few of the 8 sections on the wheel may be visable. To better explain how the wheel works we need to show a picture of the Bonus Wheel.

 

As can be seen, there are 3 sections with 5 free spins and the rest of the sections are made out of coin wins. The sections landing in the active fields (within the yellow area) are the prizes that will be awarded to the player. This means, for example, that a player can start the bonus with a maximum of 15 free spins, but can also miss the bonus to be awarded with coin wins instead.

Free Spins


The great thing with the bonus is that the Wild symbol appears as a colossal symbol. If a colossal wild is part of a win, it will be split up into 1x1 wild symbols. The bonus wheel can be reactivated a maximum of 3 times in the free spins, and activate a maximum of 25 additional spins in total.

Asgardian Stones: Slot Verdict
As already mentioned, the visual designers have done a phenomenal job. The production really is spectacular and stands out from its competitors. Moreover, the game is smooth to play and we could not find any annoyances that could potentially ruin the experience. With that having been said, there are some flaws as well. For example, the base game just doesn't seem to give good enough returns which can be very frustrating and the bonus is over before it starts whenever you're awarded only 5 spins. Low to medium variance, don't expect any massive payouts either.

 

You could say that Asgardian Stones is a less volatile version of Gonzo’s Quest, but the game is unique enough to stand firmly on its own 5 reels. There are similarities yes, but here you also find colossal symbols and wilds, and the innovative colossal crush feature. If you only get 5 free spins, the bonus round can seem a bit short, but many times you will get more. The potential is good for this medium level volatility, and it’s no wonder this game has hit home with a lot of players.

 

Pros

  • Colossal symbols up to 3x3
  • Innovative colossal crush feature
  • Bonus wheel symbol
  • Free spins with colossal wilds
  • Win up to 2,000x your stake

 

Cons

  • No bonus game
