The slot is available on all devices and while it's worth noting that it has been optimised for Chrome, you can still play the game easily on any other browser. There's a pretty decent 96.31% return to player and you can play for as little as 10p per bet.
There are two bonus modes, including a bonus wheel feature that can lead to a variety of free spins. There's a 500x jackpot on offer too if you do get lucky, which means you could potentially walk away with a massive win when coupled with the maximum bet of £200. Going in with a full stake is of course extremely risky and generally not advisable – there's no sure thing after all.
You can play the Asgardian Stones online slot on all mobile devices as well as desktops. The slot is a five-reel, 20-payline game, so pretty standard. Even if you've played these types of slots before, it's always a good idea to check the pay table before starting to familiarise yourself with the general symbol value. Thankfully, NetEnt has made finding the pay table easy – you can simply click on the little 'i' icon in the bottom left corner of the screen.
Although it might seem to be a fairly standard slot in terms of game design, there are some interesting features that really help the title stand out, not including the well-executed sound and visuals. In addition to the bonus wheel, there's the avalanche feature (more on this in a moment) and both expanding and mega symbols, which help to keep the game exciting and potentially quite rewarding if you're placing stakes.
The runic versions of standard letters form the lowest value symbols. The various faces of the gods are worth more, with the highest being worth 25x your stake if you can get all five across a payline. The wilds are very easy to spot in this game too, thanks to the fact they're a big 'W'. These can be substituted for any symbol apart from the ones on the bonus wheel. In addition to the bonus wheel mode, there's the colossal crush and avalanche feature.
The avalanche is a feature you might be familiar with if you're a regular slot player, as it does turn up in other titles under a different name. When you win, the winning symbols then vanish. An 'avalanche' of new symbols will fall and if there are any empty spaces below, the corresponding rows will be crushed. Each crushed row gives a 1x multiplier and this can continue up to a maximum of 4x. Once the avalanche hits the bottom or stops, you'll get the full rewards of the initial winning line and any multipliers.
The bonus wheel is activated when you manage to hit a 3x3 bonus wheel on reels three, four and five. The amount of the wheel that gets revealed can vary, but once triggered the segments can give you either multipliers (up to 5x your total bet) or five free spins. The free spins triggered by the wheel can also turn any wilds into colossal symbols. You can also activate the bonus wheel up to three times in total.
Overall, this is another solid title from NetEnt. It's fairly beginner friendly, as you can keep stakes nice and low if you like and there's also a demo mode. Veteran spinners might already have noticed that this game is quite similar to the well-known classic Gonzo's Quest, which makes a good alternative to this title. Asgardian Stones is a bit better to look at these days though.
The fact you can play with very high stakes is certain to appeal to players that like to add a bit more risk to their gaming. The RTP isn't bad either. All in all, it's a great slot with a little bit of something for newbies, fun seekers and risk takers alike.
