Are you ready for a journey into myth and legend? Lovers of fantasy and Viking games will be pleased to hear that NetEnt, the leading developer of slots like Starburst and Finn and the Swirly Spin, have released an epic Norse mythology slot called Asgardian Stones with industry first features!
The game is a 5-reel slot with 3 rows and 20 bet lines, deceptively simple, with a magical atmosphere and aesthetic. Only the bravest warriors can live amongst the Gods in Asgard, the heaven of Viking mythology, joining heroes of legend for all eternity. The slot is cascading, with new symbols falling in like blocks of stone. They depict the faces of gods like Odin (watch out for his one eye), Freya and Thor, each with runes on their foreheads. Between these and the glittering city in the background, the artwork is very impressive!
The big feature for this game is Colossal Crush, an industry first, another innovation by NetEnt. Huge stone symbols crush those underneath, releasing their energy to bump up your win multiplier. There’s also a free spin wheel that crushes symbols and rows. Players must overcome these giant stones to gain entry to the enchanted world of Asgard, all to the sound of an atmospheric soundtrack.
You’ll find Asgardian Stones at most casino sites that stock NetEnt titles, such as Casumo which also has the similar new Gem Rocks slot game by Yggdrasil. It’s kind of ironic since you’d expect Yggdrasil to make the Asgard-based game- for anyone who has wondered what the name means, Yggdrasil is the World Tree in Norse myth, around which the whole universe is built.
Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said: “Our team has worked tirelessly during the process of designing and creating Asgardian Stones™ and really look forward to see the game finally out with players all over the world. The Colossal Crush feature is an industry first and only adds to the excitement this game offers, so we can’t wait to see the reaction from the gaming world as we continue our positive start to 2018.”
