Norse myth and legend is the theme on offer in Fortunes of Asgard, a superbly designed 5 reel, 20 payline video slot from Bla Bla Bla Gaming and Microgaming. Look out for the Gods Thor and Hellia who can trigger stacked and sticky wilds. Also on offer are a pick me round and a free spins feature. Play on all devices from between 20p and £10 per spin.
We haven’t seen many video slots from Bla Bla Bla Gaming but the ones we have are well designed – that’s also true of Fortunes of Asgard. The setting here is Asgard, 1 of the 9 realms of Norse legend. You’ll see gold A to 10 playing cards spinning around the reels alongside magic books, shields and hammers. Next come Hellia and Thor who each award 500 coins if you land 5 on a line. The lightning wild replaces everything bar the bonus and scatter and awards up to 1,000 coins.
You have a choice of playing in 2 different modes in Fortunes of Asgard. This determines what wild extra is in play. In Thor mode, hope to see the hammer land next to Thor. When this happens, Thor will transform and turn the whole of that row wild. In Hellia mode, it’s the book that has the magical properties – when it lands next to Hellia, the goddess becomes wild and will remain in position for the next spin.
Regardless of whether you’re playing in Thor or Hellia mode, there are 2 bonus features on offer in Fortunes of Asgard:
World Tree feature – land the bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 to trigger this pick me round. You’ll be taken to a new screen where Yggdrasil, the tree of life has 9 different realms perching on its branches. Cash prizes lurk behind these realms. Keep on choosing until you uncover a collect.
Free Spins feature – 10, 15 or 25 free spins are awarded if you land 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the same spin. You can’t trigger the World Tree feature or more free spins here but both the Thor and Hellia wild extras are in play. This means you can get wild reels and sticky wilds on every free spin.
There’s plenty to like about Fortunes of Asgard – visually, it’s very well done delivering a suitably epic feel. We’ve seen the free spins, picks round and wild extras before and they deliver plenty of action here. The overall variance is in the medium range.
This Norse legend-themed video slot is an enjoyable one. If you enjoy the fantasy genre then you’ll want to join Thor and Hellia on this epic quest. I also suggest you try WMS’ Viking Vanguard and Yggdrasil Gaming’s Vikings Go Wild which have a similar theme.
