Slot tester's review: Trystan Michielsen

Slot tested

Age of Asgard is set in the frozen lands of Nordic mythology and the realm of the Gods that lived there. The game is packed with Stacked Wilds, non-standard reels, Wilds and even Free Spins making it a worthy adventure for heroes and players alike.

This slot was developed and released in 2019 by veteran game studio Yggdrasil, bringing to bear their usual knack for amazing graphics with some innovative gameplay decisions. As I’ve come to expect from them the game looks amazing with a semi-realistic cartoon style that feels grounded enough but doesn’t shy away from exaggerated shapes either.

The game is filled with symbols that are in some way reminiscent of Norse culture, from the runes to the different characters. The background meanwhile shows us in some snow-covered village with a variety of statues flanking the double 5-reel, 3-row playing fields. That’s right, in this slot, there are 2 playing fields displayed at the same time.

The music is fittingly epic and dour, with heavy drums that play in the background as the reels spin. There are plenty of sound-effects to enjoy when things happen, from lightning crackling when there is a Stacked Wild on one of the 40 paylines to chains rattling when one of the underworld symbols score a win.

Symbols

There are a number of unique symbols in the game, with the low-paying symbols based on classic card suits but designed to resemble runes more than their original shape. I thought this was a great way of including something familiar into the game but making it fit the theme. The different characters are all Stacked Wilds, giving them plenty of room to show off the creative talent that went into designing them.

The animations are mostly based around the special effects and not so much within the symbols themselves. Triggering a win will send a bolt of lightning across the affected payline as well as have the symbols move slightly but nothing major.

These symbols include:

  • Free Spins: Get 3 Free Spins symbols on the screen to activate the Free Spins mode.
  • Wilds: Wilds substitute all other symbols except the Free Spins.
  • Red Queen: Max. 6x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Serpent: Max. 6x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Green Rogue: Max. 5x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Skeleton: Max. 5x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Blue Warrior: Max. 4.5x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Frost Giant: Max. 4.5x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Spade: Max. 2x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Club: Max. 2x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Diamond: Max. 1x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Heart: Max. 1x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Reversed Club: Max. 2x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Reversed Diamond: Max. 2x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Reversed Heart: Max. 2x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.
  • Reversed Spade: Max. 1x your bet with five-of-a-kind on a winning bet line.

Even though the payouts are low, the game expects you to get something out of the Stacked Symbols and Stacked Wilds that populate the screen. The fact that there are technically 2 playing fields also adds to the likelihood of getting a win. In my time playing, I found that you will often get multiple wins on paylines at the same time.

Still, the game has a Medium Volatility as you’re not being showered with wins. Players can mitigate the risk somewhat by changing their bets to between $0.20 and $200 per spin. I would suggest to start off low and then increase it over time after you get a feel for the game.

Features

The features in Age of Asgard are quite involved. They aren’t especially difficult to understand in my opinion, but they do change up some of the things we’ve come to expect. The main and most obvious change is the double playing fields. These 2 hardly interact except for some special features and can be largely considered to be separate. You’re simply getting 2 spins for the price of 1.

Each playing field is 5x3 and has its own set of symbols. High-paying symbols are all stacked while the other ones are simple 1x1 tiles. The other features include:

  • Stacked Wilds: Wilds substitute all other symbols in the game except the Free Spins. Wilds are automatically nudged to fill the reel they’re on.
  • Stacked Symbols: High-paying symbols are all stacked and can fill the entire reel they are on, but they are never nudged.
  • Re-Spins: When a Wild symbol appears on the same reel in both the top and bottom playing field a Re-Spin is activated. This Re-Spin will add up to 4 random single tile Wilds to the playing field.
  • Free Spins: With 3 or more Free Spins symbols the Free Spins mode starts. The more symbols, the better the Free Spins mode gets.

The main focus of the game is the Free Spins mode, even if it didn’t activate too often for me. Depending on the number of symbols this mode gets more extravagant.

  • 3 Free Spins Symbols: With 3 symbols, the Free Spins mode starts and turns the 2 playing fields into one 5-reel, 6-row playing field with 50 paylines. The player receives 10 free spins to play with.
  • 5 Free Spins Symbols: With 5 free spin symbols you get the same as above but you will also activate the Randomizer which can upgrade Free Spins into Ragnarok Free Spins or award you a 25x bet win.
  • 6 Free Spins Symbols: The same thing happens as with 3 Free Spins symbols, but this time awards 20 free spins to the player. It also only uses high-paying symbols with every spin. This is called the Ragnarok Free Spins.

At the end of the day, I found the Free Spins mode to be a small but important part of the game. It doesn’t trigger as often as I would like and I never got more than 3 symbols on the screen at the same time. Still, the coin wins were quite substantial and I enjoyed the way it was visualised.

I thought the overall experience was pretty satisfactory but it requires the player to invest some time into the gameplay to figure out what is going on. Not all of the features are explained properly at the start, but I did like that certain elements had an information screen pop up when they activated.

In Conclusion

Age of Asgard is another beautiful Yggdrasil game that offers plenty for everyone. The graphics are sure to stay top-tier for quite a while, coupled with the originality and detail put into the symbols. The soundtrack was a good addition without being too attention-grabbing or distracting.

Players that enjoy a simple, classic experience won’t find that here. Even though the double playing fields pretty much operate as normal, the way they interact with each other will probably deter some classic players.

If you want to play something original without being too different from the video slots most of us know and love, you can’t really go wrong with Age of Asgard. A max. win of 2,444x your bet should also be an interesting prize.

3.5

    I've been playing videoslots for almost 10 years and been a professional reviewer for over 5. I look at slots not just as a writer but also as a player, hoping to help others find their perfect slot.

    I also enjoy movies, books and travel so any slots with those topics usually have my preference. But in general I'll play everything!
