The slot is unique in each of its aspects and the first you notice is the double reel set. This is the so-called Dual Machine feature with double 5×3 reel sets. On the upper one, you will land the good female warriors and the corresponding low-value symbols. On the lower grid are of course the baddies – high-value monsters and low-value symbols. Good and evil fight and the result of this clash will benefit you. When they collide you will get re-spins and wilds.
The player can choose a bet from 0.20 up to £200 per spin and use compatible desktop and mobile devices. Age of Asgard is a game with mid-level volatility which offers 2,444 times your stake per free spin for a top cash prize. The RTP is 96.2% and there are 20 pay-lines on each of the reel sets which makes a total of 40 pay-lines you can win from. Free spins you will play with 50 pay-lines on a merged 5×6 reel grid. In the game, there is a bunch of extra features. Here are the Respin, the Clash, the Free Spins, the Ragnarok Free Spins, and the Randomiser.
The grid is framed in a wooden hut and warriors stand on each of the sides. On the background behind you will see statues and huts in freezing weather. On the left and right sides of the reels below, there are bowls with bluish and fiery lights coming from them. The backdrop around the sets changes from blue winter one to fiery weather in certain stages of the game. On the reels, you will see the 4 card suits styled differently on the upper and lower set. They are designed as nice runic letters.
The reel set is double separated in 2 sides – upper and lower. On the upper set, you can land female warriors of the good. They will fight with the monsters and dragons landing on the lower one. As usually, Yggdrasil has created a stunning game with graphics that stand out. The theme is entirely familiar to the studio which is Swedish. As such, it is well aware of the Nordic mythology used as the topic here.
The symbols present on the reels include 8 card suits (4 up and 4 below). They are styled in runic letters’ fashion and have the lowest value. They pay from 0.2 to 2 times your stake. From the high-value ones, there are 6 symbols – 3 heroes (female warriors) above and 3 monsters below. These appear in a 1×3 size. Among them, the top players that return the most are the female warrior and the dragon monster. They both give you 0.8, 2 or 6 x stake for 3, 4 or 5 on a pay-line.
The big advantage that this game holds is the plenty of features taking part. Combined they give you an unforgettable experience. During the main stage, you can land wild symbols on both of the grid sets. On the upper set, this is the good golden warrior and on the lower one – an evil golden beast plays the wild. As normally wilds substitute for missing symbols and here they appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 only. These symbols are 1 reel and 3 rows high (1×3) just like the premium ones.
When a wild symbol lands, if it doesn’t cover the whole reel, it will nudge upwards or downwards to do so. Moreover, after covering a reel, the wild will lock in place and activate a re-spin. This is the Respin feature. If after the re-spin you land another full wild, you get another extra re-spin. If you manage to land a full screen of sticky wilds, there won’t be any re-spins. But you will receive a Ragnarok Big Win. This is 960 times your stake if you are playing in the main game or 1,200x stake in the Free Spins.
The Clash feature activates when you land rival wilds meeting on the opposite sides of the same reel at a time. As a result, there will be 2, 3 or 4 smaller wilds (1×1) coming into play. If these wilds land on any of the premium symbols, the stacked symbol will get covered with random wilds ensuring massive payouts.
You can enter the Free Spins game by landing 3 scatters on the top or bottom reel in a single round. As a result, you will receive 10 free spins. According to the position on which you got the scatters – on the top or bottom set, only symbols corresponding to it will be landing in the free rounds. Also, the reel grid will merge into a giant 5 reels on 6 rows layout with a total of 50 pay-lines.
The wilds during free spins appear stacked 6 symbols high and can nudge. They can trigger the Clash feature if they fill the entire reel and then 4 random wilds can appear on the reels. If the latter nudge, you will receive 2 more random wild symbols. Either way, you will get a re-spin with sticky expanded wilds.
If you land 3 scatters on one of the grids and 2 on the other one in a spin, you will launch the Randomiser feature. The wheel will spin to give you a prize. This can be 10 free spins, upgrade to the Ragnarok Free Spins or a consolidation reward of 50 times your wager.
If you land 6 scatters – 3 on the upper and 3 on the lower set simultaneously, you will win the Ragnarok Free Spins feature. Now, you get 20 free spins and you will play them with both high-value symbol types only landing from both sets. So, there will be no low-paying card suits taking part in the rounds. The 6 wild symbols will always nudge when they land and you will receive a re-spin with sticky wilds. Succeeding to land sticky wilds only on all reels on the merged grid gives you the Ragnarok Big Win – 1,200 times your bet.
Age of Asgard is action-packed and lets you win a lot from each stage of the free spins and base game. This is possible thanks to the re-spins and clashes. The highest potential you have during the Ragnarok Free Spins feature. You play it with premium symbols only. You can also score big from the Ragnarok Big Win during the main game and free rounds. Although its variance is in the middle, it offers you a nice payout of up to 2,444 times your stake per free spin. Enter this fiery battle of Ragnarok if you are brave enough and you will be rewarded richly.
