Time to head to Asgard where the god of Thunder awaits, ready to slam Mjolnir onto your screen with every spin of this 5×3 reel slot machine.
Look, there no way around it, there are now tons of games around the casino theme of Vikings and the Norse Gods. This Asgards Thunder slot game doesn’t do anything differently, in as much as you’re in the middle of a battlefield and Thor is clearly heading deep into battle.
It’s a shame they couldn’t be more inventive with the low paying symbols, sticking to the original 9 to Ace high card symbols, but at least you know which symbols are worth more than others immediately.
Meanwhile, you have to love the animations. From the burning fires in the background to the way that golden hammer slams onto the reels, dropping one or three wilds on any spin, it’s certainly got that dramatic flair we appreciate as mobile slot reviewers and players.
And that’s not a bad thing. Whilst video slots with bonus games can get a little crazy these days, with reels that expand to crazy multiway of madness, to 10 mini-games, to 5 types of wilds, Asgard Thunder sticks to the basics.
You have a wild and a scatter in the base game. One replaces other symbols in a win, the other triggers 8 free spins.
What makes the free spins bonus games special is that Thor, The Golden Chest, the Horn of Jewels and The Emerald Vase will be turned into wild symbols on every single spin of those 8 spins.
Pretty neat right? That’s a guaranteed 3 or more wilds on every spin!
Well, those symbols we’ve mentioned are the higher paid symbols on the paytable. So what you are left with during the free spins is the low paying 9 to Ace and lots of wilds.
This should make this Asgards Thunder online slot unplayable, but Novomatic has made a clever compromise. Yes, you generally get lots of smaller wins in the free spins because of it.
But the Wild is technically the highest paid symbol of the whole paytable. So catch 5 on a line and you get an automatic 50x your bet. Get it on all 20 paylines and you walk away with 1,000 times your bet.
We can’t quite recommend this Asgards Thunder phone slot for more than a few quick action-packed spins, but we had fun enough between playing more volatile games like the Vikings Go Wild slot or the Viking Runecraft slot by Play’n GO, to want to come back.

Wild: The golden hammer is the wild symbol and can be used to replace any other symbol to create a win this 20 payline slot machine.
Free Spins: 3 or more hands of god holding a lightning bolt triggers 8 free games. During the free spins all four of the highest paid symbols are turned into golden hammer wild symbols.
Gamble: You can gamble any win by betting on the outcome of a simple game of cards. Guess the colour of the next card in the deck and you double your win. Guess wrong and you lose your original win.
If only the symbol transformation during the free spin bonus would have been a little more random (just pick one symbol for example).
All we ask is for the chance to get bigger wins with the higher paytable; it would have added a little extra pizzazz to this Asgards Thunder slot on mobile.
As it is, it's not a bad payoff because, technically, the wild symbols are the highest paid symbol of the lot, so the more wilds the better - that's true of any slot machine.
With action-packed animations, and every slam of the hammer sending shivers down your spin, this is a pretty good low to mid variance machine by Novomatic game studios.
