Fortunes Of Asgard Slots - Microgaming
ABOUT FORTUNES OF ASGARD SLOTS
Fortunes of Asgard is a Norse-themed video slot that takes us to the golden gates where gods themselves reside! The game was created by Microgaming and released in April of 2018. It’s not the most visually impressive release we have seen, but it gets the job done. The slot has 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines. Music is appropriately epic, but the reel spinning sound is obnoxiously bad.
The theme of the game centres around the conflict between Thor and Hellia. This aspect is reflected in multiple areas. The two most notable ones were the background image changing depending on your patron deity and the various special features. Bonuses include Wild Reels, sticky Wilds, free spins and a point-and-click special feature. If you plan to win the 6,262.5x your bet jackpot, you’ll need to hit all of them.
HOW TO PLAY
This Microgaming release is played on a 5-reel, 3-row board with 20 fixed paylines. All wins must follow one of the 20 paylines, or else the winning combination will not grant a cash prize. Players can set their wagers between $0.20 and $10 per spin. Fortunes of Asgard is a medium variance slot, so gamblers aren’t likely to bankrupt themselves wagering too high. To win, collect three or more identical symbols in adjacent positions, going from left to right. Players can choose to spin the reels manually, or can use the Autoplay function to skip needless tapping or clicking.
As you’d expect from a game about gods, there’s definitely three distinct ‘castes’ of icons. The low-value playing card royals, the medium-value tools of the gods and the high paying gods and Wilds. Playing card royals include 10, J, Q, K and A, done in an elegant, golden style. Meanwhile, the tools include a wooden shield, Thor’s hammer and Hellia’s book. The smallest prize you can win is 0,25x, while the highest is only 25x your total stake.
It should be clear to you that you cannot win your jackpot with the available bonuses. The most valuable of these are the free spins, as they allow you to have both Thor and Hellia’s special feature.
This symbol appears regularly in the slot and is the highest paying icon. It can also substitute for all other symbols, except for Bonus icons and Scatters. On top of the traditional Wilds that can appear, Thor and Hellia’s bonuses can create new Wilds. We will talk more about them in the Special Features section below.
Scatters are a diamond road leading to Asgard itself. The symbol has only one purpose: to activate free spins. It does not have any cash prize of its own to contribute – not that it really needs to. The extra turns are just that powerful by themselves.
When the game starts, gamblers are asked to pick between Thor and Hellia. This will alter which Wild special feature you will have access to.
• If Thor and his hammer appear horizontally adjacent to each other, the whole reel turns Wild.
• If Hellia lands next to her book, the goddess becomes Wild and is frozen in place for a single spin.
Collect three or more Scatters to win up to 25 free spins. During these extra turns, both Thor and Hellia’s Wild bonuses are active.
Finding three Bonus symbols allows you to choose between various galaxies for cash prizes.
