Key Details of the Age of Asgard Slot Game

One of the first things that you will notice about the Age of Asgard slot machine is that it has 2 sets of reels. Each has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. There are slightly different symbols on each set of reels. The upper of the 2 sets have gods used as symbols and its own set of lower value symbols. The minimum bet level is 0.005 coins and the maximum is 5.00 coins. This usually works out as a minimum of 20p and a maximum of £200, though this might vary so always check with your favoured operator.

The maximum win available is 2,444x your bet, though some UK operators may set the limit at £250,000. You can change your bet levels using the tabs underneath the reels. There is also a plus sign close to them that you can click to access the game’s paytable as well as information about how the game’s features work, what the special symbols look like and much more. We were impressed with the level and clarity of the detail provided here.

Age of Asgard Slot RTP

The RTP of the Age of Asgard fruit machine is 96.20%, which makes it fairly typical for a slot of this type. It is certainly in the typical range for a Yggdrasil slot. Other Yggdrasil games with a similar RTP include Bicicleta (96.30%), Easter Island (96.10%) and Valley of Gods (96.20%).

The game has medium volatility. When we tried the game, raising our bet level seemed to increase the regularity at which the free spins feature was triggered. The game uses HTML5 technology so can be played on mobile devices with no effect on the quality of the graphics and sound at all.

Solid Graphics and Decent Sound Effects

As we mentioned above, one thing that is immediately noticeable about this game is the twin reel sets. We’ll look at how they work in the next section of the review, but for now all you need to know is that they are framed by what looks like the entrance to a wooden temple.

A wooden statue of a goddess and one of a skull-headed god stand on either side of the reels. Behind the reels is a snowy scene featuring longhouses and mountains. It lacks detail but it does the job of helping to immerse you in the world of the game.

A suitably dramatic soundtrack plays, with the music full of the kind of drum flourishes and flute signatures that suit TV series like The Last Kingdom or Vikings. While enjoyable enough at first, it does tend to become a little repetitive after a while. Other musical flourishes play when a win spins in and there are some twinkling coin sounds too.

Good versus Bad on the Twin Reel Sets

There is a difference in the symbols that you’ll see on the 2 reel sets. The symbols on the upper set are ‘good’ goddesses while those on the lower are more associated with evil. The good characters are represented by female warriors while the evil characters are much more monstrous in appearance. The lower value symbols on both sets of reels are Viking runes of various shapes and colours.

The wild symbol and the free spins symbol are the game’s 2 most important symbols, if you want to win the big prizes that come from the game’s features.

Bonus Features in Age of Asgard Slot

This game is stocked full of interesting bonus features that can bring you big rewards. There are 5 features of varying complexity in the Age of Asgard slot, with the free spins bonus being the most potentially lucrative of them. We’ll look at all 5 of them here.

Wild Respins

In the Age of Asgard slot there are 2 wild symbols, with 1 for each set of reels. The wild for the upper reels is a goddess with a winged helmet, while the one for the lower reels is what looks like a chained werewolf.

They will substitute for all regular symbols and will appear stacked in the base game, filling 3 spaces on a reel. This means that you can fill an entire reel on 1 of the reel sets with a wild. If this happens, you receive a free respin with that wild locked in place. The wilds are sticky for the duration of the respin. If another reel fills with wilds on the respin, you receive another respin. If you end up with sticky wilds filling all the reel positions then you’ll win a Ragnarok Big Win worth 19,200 coins in the base game and 24,000 coins during the free spins features.

Clash Bonus

This bonus is where having 2 reel sets really come into its own. This bonus is triggered when 2 reels that sit adjacent to each other on the 2 reel sets fill with a stacked wild at the same time, one above and one below. After the Clash is triggered, you will see 2, 3 or 4 more random wilds appear on the reels. They will turn the symbols where they land into wild symbols. They cannot land on other wild symbols.

The Randomiser
This feature is triggered when you spin in 3 free spins symbols on one reel set and 2 free spin symbols on the other. The Randomiser can help you in 1 of 2 ways. It can either upgrade your free spins to Ragnarok Free Spins, or give you a prize worth 1000 coins in addition to the free spins you have received from the 3 free spins symbols.

Free Spins

To trigger the free spins feature, 3 free spins symbols need to spin in on either of the reel sets. You get 10 free spins initially. If the free spins symbols appear on the top reel set, then only symbols from those reels can appear during the free spins. The same is true if the scatter spin in on the lower set of reels.

The free spins themselves take place on a new set of reels that measure 5 reels by 6 rows. There are 50 paylines in operation on these reels during the feature. The wilds during the free spins grow to be 6 symbols tall. The Clash feature can be triggered during the free spins too, boosting your chances of more wins. The wild symbol can also be nudged during the feature, awarding 2 random wilds.

Ragnarok Free Spins

This is a boosted free spins feature that kicks to life if you spin in 6 scatter symbols on the reels in the base game. Your reward is an immediate 20 free spins. Only high-value symbols are used on the special reel set during this feature, there are no lower value symbols on the reels at all. The 6-symbol high wild will always nudge during this feature, meaning that you’ll pick up respins with the sticky wild in place. If the reels fill entirely with wilds, you’ll win the Ragnarok Big Win that is worth 1,200 times your stake.

Slot Verdict: Packed with Viking Entertainment!

We enjoyed playing this game, so this Age of Asgard slot review is going to conclude on a positive note. There are so many bonus features to enjoy in this game that you’re sure to be entertained by it, especially if you enjoy some good luck along the way. The twin reelset is an innovative aspect that we also enjoyed, but there is a lot that you will find well worth your time in this game. We recommend that you give it a go as soon as possible.

If you enjoy slots with a Viking theme then we also recommend that you have a look at Yggdrasil’s Vikings Go Berzerk or possibly Valkyrie from ELK Studios.

Age of Asgard Slot FAQs

🎰Does having 2 sets of reels boost my chances of winning on the Age of Asgard slot machine?
While you are always at the mercy of the Random Number Generator when playing any slot, having 2 sets of reels certainly adds an extra layer of excitement to this game. While it would be wrong to say that the 2 reels actually boosts your overall chances of winning on the game, it certainly helps to generate larger wins when the features kick in. The Clash and the Randomiser are both features that use both reel sets to generate larger wins.
💰What is the difference between Free Spins and Ragnarok Free Spins in Age of Asgard?
The main difference between these features is that the Ragnarok version gives you an initial 20 spins as opposed to 10. Another aspect that is different is that only high value symbols are used during the Ragnarok spins. You also get the chance to claim the Ragnarok Big Win. Basically, the Ragnarok version is a boosted version of the normal free spins and it’s well worth waiting for, if your patience matches your bankroll, of course.
📈Can I change the number of paylines in the Age of Asgard game?
No, the number of paylines in the base game is fixed at 20. If you trigger the Free Spins feature, though, the spins take place on a special set of reels that have 50 paylines, so the number is boosted if you’re lucky enough to spin in the right symbols to trigger the feature.
