Fortunes of Asgard Slot Review
Micorgaming welcomes you to the celestial kingdom of Asgard, the home of Nordic ancient Gods, where you will witness the epic battle between mighty Thor and Hellia. You will be asked to pick sides in the very beginning, and in this way you will activate one of two base game features that include expanding Wilds and sticky Wilds. Don’t worry, you will have a chance to switch sides as you spin the reels. Fortunes of Asgard is a five-reel slot with 20 fixed paylines that offers four different special features. We already mentioned two, and the other two are Free Spins and Pick Bonus.
The two leading symbols of the 2018 release are Thor and Hellia, the ancient Nordic deities, which is probably why Microgaming decided to make these two gods the highest-paying icons among regular symbols. Thor always comes with his Mjolnir Hammer, while Hellia carries her Book of Spells. A traditional Viking Shield is the last of the high-value symbols used in the slot. Playing cards represent low-value ones. Aesir Fortress represents the Bonus symbol that triggers the Bick Bonus, while the Rainbow that leads to Aesir is the Scatter that triggers free spins. The Wild will substitute for all regular symbols.
The reels are set in front of the Aesir Fortress and you will start the game by picking sides, Thor or Hellia. Depending on the side you have chosen, one of two available base game features will be activated. If you select Thor and if you land Thor and the Mjolnir Hammer horizontally adjacent, the whole reel strip will turn into Wild. If Hellia is activated and if you land Hellia and her Book horizontally adjacent, you will get a sticky Wild that will remain locked on its position for one more spin. The slot features a standard 5×3 layout and offers 20 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts. Bet as low as £0.20 and as high as £10 per spin.
The Free Spins feature can be triggered when 3 or more Scatters are landed on the reels. Three, four or five Scatters will get you 10, 15 or 25 freebies. Unlike in base game, during the Free Spins feature both Thor and Hellia features are active, so you can expect both expanding Wilds and sticky Wilds. The bad part of the story is that freebies cannot be retriggered.
Bonus Scatters appear on reels 1, 3 and 5 and all three of them are needed in order for the Pick Bonus to be triggered. Gamers will be offered a selection of galaxies and they are required to pick some of them to win instant cash prizes. There is also a Gamble feature available after every winning spin. Pick Red or Black cards and if you are correct, the winnings will be doubled. It is possible to play up to 4 consecutive gambles in one gamble event.
The Wild is the symbol that pays the most in the Microgaming product. Land five Wilds on a payline and collect 1,000 coins. Fill all the cells with Wilds to get the maximum payout of 20,000 coins, or £10,000. Thor and Hellia are next in line, offering 500 coins for five of a kind. The biggest wins can be expected in the Free Spins mode, since there will be lots of Wilds on the offer. Fortunes of Asgard’s RTP is 96.1%.

Being action junkies ourselves, we always like when we test a slot packed with action. Even though this is not one of Microgaming’s best work, it’s good enough, because it offers action, drama and, of course, lots of possibilities for rewarding payouts. The visuals are simply excellent, while the soundtrack fits the theme completely. Pick a god to worship and the selected deity will start delivering special features from the very beginning. Trigger free spins and activate both deity features, with sticky wilds and expanding Wilds. If you want instant cash prizes, Fortunes of Asgard will provide, while if you are a bit of a gambler who wants to double the winnings, use the Gamble feature. There is a little bit of everything to suit even the pickiest among spinners.
