Pragmatic Play is a bit late to this particular party, as they decide to release a slot machine with a theme that’s based on the gods of the Nords, with the famous Odin, Thor, Freyja and Loki all present. Asgard is the home of the Viking gods, hence the name of this slot machine.
5x3 reels get to spin in Asgard, adding symbols for the game’s 25 lines. The slot might not pay huge, only up to $2,500 per line, but the RTP is still one that’s attractive at 96.48%. Other elements that should get the attention of players include things like wilds, bonus symbols and bonus games, with random spin features also capable of triggering from time to time.
Betting and Prizes
Games that are coming from Pragmatic Play tend to offer a certain type of betting system, which uses all lines available and lets you select a bet of $0.01 to $5 for each one. Using up to 10 coins of $0.50, these line bets allow you to use between $0.25 and $125 each round, at least for this slot with 25 lines.
If you’re looking at the biggest rewards that the game promises to pay, those would come via wilds that form their own combinations, with up to $2,500 awarded for each one. Based on the 96.48% RTP that has been announced for Asgard, we can say that long-term it’s a slot with a reasonable payout percentage.
Asgard Slot Features
The list of features should begin with the symbol that pays the most, the wild. That’s what happens when up to five wilds line-up on one of the lines, paying at most $2,500, or 500x the line bet. It’s a simple substitute otherwise, which you will use in any type of regular combo if it lands on a line next to the right symbols.
Second, you have a Bonus symbol as well, one with a crystal helmet with tiny wings on the sides. Available on the reels 2, 3 and 4, when it lands on all three it triggers a bonus game. It involves free spins, four types that are each based on a different type of feature. The features in question are based on the randomly triggered features mentioned below. They involve stacked wilds, mystery symbols, playing cards that get transformed into wilds and random wilds. 5 free spins are available from each one.
As you play through this game, four different random features may trigger. One is called Royals Transform to Wild, and it’s self-explanatory. Another involves Stacked Wild Reels, which takes random reels and turns them into wilds. Mystery Stacked Symbol is the third one, and if the symbol appears it is transformed into one of the regular or wild symbols, in all its positions. Finally, there is Raining Wilds, where up to 5 wilds get placed on the reels, at random.
Theme & Design
Asgard, the home of the Viking gods, is the one that inspired this slot machine. The gods are also present in the game, and so you see images of Odin, Freyja, Thor or Loki as symbols, right alongside those of Mjolnir or of Asgard. There was enough room in the game to allow for five Royal cards to be used as well. I’m not a big fan of the Pragmatic Play style of doing design, and it’s true of this slot as well.
Asgard sports a common type of theme, but people seem to enjoy it. It certainly can’t hurt that it offers a long list of features, or that its RTP is at 96.48%. Expect for the game to be of Medium Volatility.
