Asgardian Stones – Game of the Week
The Avalanche Feature with a win multiplier up to x4, Colossal symbols that crush smaller ones, a Bonus Wheel with coin wins or Free Spins, are there any doubts as to why Asgardian Stones by NetEnt is this week’s featured game.
Ancient Gods of wisdom, strength and beauty are said to roam the halls of Asgard, except for when some of them team up with superheroes and try to save the Earth. This is not one of those times. This is the time to feel the brute force of epic wins.
So let’s get into why Asgardian Stones, a 5-reel-3-row-20-payline slot by NetEnt, isn’t just fun to play on any device, but should be added to your favourite games.
The Avalanche Feature
All you fans of Gonzo’s Quest will know exactly what this is. Instead of spinning the reels you have symbols fall into position and when you hit a winning payline the avalanche starts. Symbols in winning combinations explode and disappear, leaving space for a second Avalanche of symbols.
This process continues until there are no more wins. In Gonzo’s Quest you would get an increase win multiplier for every win, but in Asgardian Stones the win multiplier is added when Colossal symbols crush smaller ones. Yeah. It’s just as awesome as it sounds.
Every symbol in the main game and in Free Spins can also appear as a Colossal version of itself, except for the wild symbol in the main game. A Colossal symbol is a block of symbols of 2×2 or 3×3 regular symbols. They can be either fully or partially displayed depending on how the reel lands.
After the first Avalanche, the Colossal Crush feature can be activated in both the main game and in Free Spins. A Colossal symbol must always have symbols in all the positions directly underneath it.
If there still are empty position underneath the Colossal symbols, as a result of a previous win, the Colossal symbol falls, crushing all symbols on the row underneath it. Groovy!
For each row a symbol is crushed, the win multiplier increases by 1 with a maximum multiplier of x4. The multiplier is applied to the next set of symbols and is then reset to 1, which means that each multiplier may only be used once.
The Bonus Wheel is a symbol block of 3×3 symbols that can land on the last 3 reels only, in both the main game and in Free Spins. It may land fully or partially visible in the play area. Once all avalanches and win calculations are over, the Bonus Wheel stops. Coin wins, Free Spins, or both, may be won on the Bonus Wheel, at the same time. Not too shabby.
The number of coin wins and Free Spins won in the active fields of the Bonus Wheel will be equal to the number of rows the 3×3 symbol covers. So if the wheel covers all three rows you will get three rewards! The cool thing is that if you had the Colossal Crush feature going on before the Bonus Wheel hit, the increase win multiplier is applied to the coin wins on the wheel.
But unlike the win multiplier is not reset if there is a following Avalanche, instead the multiplier increase again, the multiplier on the coin wins is increased further. This means that there is a chance for a coin win on the Bonus Wheel to reach a maximum of 36 times the total bet!
There are 3 fields in the Bonus Wheel awarding 5 Free Spins each. So if the wheel covers all three rows you can get up to a total of 15 Free Spins. But that’s not all. The Bonus Wheel can still fall during Free Spins to grant even more, but it’s limited to 3 times. Obviously the Avalanche and the Colossal Crush features are still available during Free Spins.
