Asgardian Stones, which is a promising new release from NetEnt, is slotted to be a thoroughly enjoyable game from this popular developer. The story goes that at some point in the past warriors could live among gods, but first they had to find a way through the gates which are guarded by giant stones that mimic the look of old Gods. It’s a nice story, and one that will get you playing, especially since the graphics are enjoyable.
5x3 reels were added to this game, while the number of lines will be fixed at 20. The game allows the player to take advantage of Bonus Wheels, wild symbols, free spins, the Avalanche feature and several Colossal symbols.
Betting and Prizes
The betting in any NetEnt game tends to follow the same lines, with minor differences. Typically, you get fixed lines, particularly in newer slots like this one. 20 are used in this case, so the bet has to use 20 coins when it’s at level 1. The bet level can increase up to 10, so at its highest the bet will have 200 coins in it. The thing that changes from one slot to another is usually the coin value, starting at $0.01, but with its maximum denomination being anywhere between $0.50 and $2. For a game like this, the maximum bet could end up being anywhere between $100 and $400.
The rewards are typically excellent in slot machines from NetEnt, but that’s mostly about the average RTP which is used. The actual amounts that you get from single combinations tends to be quite low, which is a result of the wealth of features that are implemented and which make the slot exciting to play.
Asgardian Stones Slot Features
Out of the features that the game uses, the Avalanche is among the ones that you will see most often. It triggers when winning combinations are formed, and it will remove the symbols which are involved from the screen, leaving room for others to come in and take over the positions that are available. New combinations may be formed this way. Multiple wins, coming over the course of consecutive avalanches, will also benefit from increased multipliers. You start off at 1x, but avalanches will bring you 2x, 3x and 4x wins eventually, if they continue for long enough.
The Colossal Symbols are also noteworthy in this game. They are big, but they appear to be offered in two different variants, with 2x2 and 3x3 sizes. Obviously, they tend to be part of multiple winning combinations more often than not, since they occupy several lines.
There is also a Bonus Wheel colossal symbol that can appear on the reels. If any part of it is visible, it will spin right there, and it will give you a cash reward or access to 5 free spins.
Wild substitutions may occur, and these symbols are usable both in regular and colossal sized variants. Their image is that of a W logo.
Theme & Design
As I mentioned previously, the theme and story of Asgardian Stones appears to involve an attempt on the part of the player, to gain entrance into the land of the gods. The Asgardian Stones act as guardians to this land of power and huge riches, and so your motives for trying to get in are quite clear.
The symbols are designed as blocks of stone, most of them occupying a single position, but with colossal sized versions available as well. They show us images of the playing cards or with the god representations, made out of stone.
Asgardian Stones is an exciting release from NetEnt, with a beautiful design in place and with features that should make it fun to play.
