Where to play?
Age Of Asgard is one of Yggdrasil’s many new online slots for 2019. Themed after Norse mythology, the slot has high-quality, immersive graphics that, along with the great attention to detail and rich characterisation, do an excellent job of immersing you in the world of the Norse gods. The slot’s played on a grid with three rows and five reels. The RTP is 96.3% and the variance is medium, so as you play you can expect a mix of smaller and larger wins to be paid out fairly often.
Symbols and Payouts
The slot’s grid is set within a wooden shrine with statues of gods either side of it. You’ll notice that there are actually two reel sets: both the upper and the lower sets have three rows and five reels; they spin independently of each other. Each reel set has its own symbols (female warriors for the upper one and beasts for the lower one), as well as 20 paylines – therefore, the slot’s played with 40 paylines per spin. The warrior and god symbols are high-paying and appear three positions high. The slot’s low-paying symbols are wooden rune carvings in different colours. The highest-paying warrior and beast symbols both reward you with payouts of 6x your stake for five on a payline.
Each reel set has its own stacked wild. If one of these lands fully on its reel, you get a respin with the wild locked in place. If one of these lands partially, it may nudge one position up or down so as to trigger the respin feature. Should stacked wilds fill entire opposing reels (e.g. if stacked wilds completely fill reel on both reel sets), a Clash takes place. Up to four wilds are randomly added to the reels. If a wild lands on a high-paying symbol, it expands to cover the entire symbol.
Should you land three free spins symbols on one reel set, it will expand to have six rows instead of three. You’ll get 10 free spins and only symbols from that particular reel set appear for the free spins round. During this feature, the stacked wilds are six positions high and if they land partially, they can nudge. Should a stacked wild cover an entire reel, you’ll get a respin and a Clash.
If you happen to land three free spins symbols on both reel sets, you’ll get to play the Ragnarok Free Spins feature. For this, you’re given 20 free spins that are played on a six-row, five-reel grid that only features high-paying warrior and beast symbols and no low-paying rune symbols at all. Look out for stacked wilds: they appear six position high and the top half is the warrior wild; the bottom half is the beast wild. If the stacked wild appears partially, it nudges to trigger the respin feature; it also triggers the Clash feature.
Finally, there’s the Randomizer feature. This launches whenever a total of five free spins symbols land across the two reel sets – three on one reel set and two on the other. A wheel will be spun and you’ll either get to play the Ragnarok Free Spins feature or you’ll get a 1,000 coin win.
Age of Asgard is a fantastic addition to Yggdrasil’s portfolio of slots. Not only does it look brilliant with its detailed Norse theming, it’s also a very exciting slot to play thanks to its many special features. For starters, you won’t find many slots that are played on two separate reel sets that merge. Have a spin of this superb new slot and behold the wonders of the Norse world. Try to trigger the Ragnarok Free Spins, which can be very rewarding thanks to its lack of low-paying symbols.
