Fans of the Thor films and Norse mythology will love Yggdrasil’s new slot, Age of Asgard, which is visually stunning and packed with special features, including 2 free spins features, respins, and expanding sticky wilds. As if that wasn’t enough, the slot comes with two reel sets that spin simultaneously, and there’s a max win of 2,444x a player’s stake during either of the free spins features.
Age of Asgard has 5 reels, 40 paylines, and can be played on desktop, mobile, and tablet. Bets range from $.20 to $200 and the RTP is 96.2%.
The reels are encased in a hut with carved wooden gods on both sides. It’s a double slot mechanic, which means that there’s a 5x3 reel on top and another one on the bottom. The top reel set contains gods and runes while the bottom reel set contains their enemies and similar runes. The high-value symbols in both reel sets are 3 symbols tall. The highest-paying female warrior on the top reel set and the dragon on the bottom set reward .8, 2, or 6x a player’s stake when 3, 4, or 5 land in combination. There are two wild symbols that are also 3 symbols high, and they only land on the 3 middle reels.
The Clash feature is triggered when both wilds meet on opposing sides of the same reel. This creates 2, 3, or 4 smaller wilds. When they land on a high-value symbol, the whole stacked symbol gets covered by wilds for potentially bigger payouts.
When either wild occupies an entire reel, a respin is awarded and the wild reel stays locked in position. If a full wild reel lands on the respin, another respin is rewarded. If all positions get filled with sticky wilds, the feature ends and the take is 960x the player's stake in the base game.
When 3 Free Spins symbols land on the top or bottom reel set, 10 free spins are awarded. The free spins take place on a single 5x6 reel set with 50 paylines. The wilds combine to become 6 symbols high and the Clash feature and Respins feature can be triggered.
Ragnarok Free Spins
When 6 Free Spins symbols land on the reels in the base game, the Ragnarok Free Spins feature is triggered. Players immediately get 20 free spins and only high-value symbols appear on the reels. During this feature, if all positions get filled with sticky wilds, players win 1200x their stake!
When 3 Free Spins symbols land on either reel set and 2 Free Spins symbols land on the opposite set, the Randomizer feature is activated. When this happens, the wheel spins and upgrades the regular Free Spins to the Ragnarok Free Spins feature. If that doesn’t happen, players get a consolation prize of 50x their stake.
Age of Asgard from Yggdrasil has virtually everything players look for in a slot: Intriguing theme, great visuals and soundtrack, plenty of features, and potentially frequent wins. While Norse mythology isn’t exactly a new theme, Yggdrasil Gaming did a great job of making its slot unique and exciting.
