Norse mythology is one of the more popular mythologies in the world. The Norse god Thor for example is featured in the blockbuster movie The Avengers as well as in numerous comic books and video games. So it is no surprise to see it as part of a slot game.
NextGen Gaming has taken a few liberties in its new “Pillars of Asgard” slot game. The theme is loosely designed around Norse mythology as well as a few traits from Greek mythology.
The developers got creative and put together some great graphics that will keep players glued to their screens.
The game itself is set on the rainbow bridge Bifrost. The pillars might represent the fact that Asgard is one of the nine realms in the universe. The look of the game is pretty great and it brings to life quite a bit of the Norse myth. The game features six reels and over 4,096 ways to win.
As always, the game uses a bunch of symbols that players need to match. The lowest-value ones are the A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9 royals. Players who want bigger rewards should aim for the Nordic-themed symbols. There are runic stones that represent various parts of the Norse myth like Yggdrasil, the tree of life, and the gods themselves. The most valuable of these symbols is Odin, which also acts as the wild symbol. Players who get five of this symbol get 200 times their stake.
Besides giving players a big prize, the Odin symbol is part of the many bonuses that the game offers. Depending on the number of Odin symbols scored, players will also get a random multiplier. The more Odin symbols scored, the random choice narrows down. For example, with one Odin, players have a chance to score a multiplier from 2x to 10x. With five Odins, then the choice is either an 8x multiplier or a 10x multiplier.
The game also has a scatter symbol. Players who score three or more of these symbols will get 20 free spins. The difference is that in this game, the more scatters that a player scores, the more rows are added. At most, a player can get an additional four rows to play with. This can potentially give players one million ways to win.
Overall, the Pillars of Asgard offers players many ways to win and make it fun along the way. Do give it a spin or two when it arrives at your favourite online casino.
