Don’t let the looks of this Avatars Gateway Guardians slot fool you: this has impressive wins, and is definitely a slot, even if it’s… a little different.
You may look at the game images and wonder… how do you win? This circular slot has 6 sections in the base game. You need to align 3 parts of the symbol on any section to win. Don’t be scared, it’s simpler than it seems.
The Avatars Gateway Guardians slot may not look like a traditional fruit machine, but it has a lot more in common with classic slots than you might think, with only 6 paylines and 7 symbols that you need to line up.
Unlike grid slot games which require a little bit of knowledge to learn how to play, this Avatars Gateway Guardians slot game is actually quite intuitive, once you get used to the idea that the slot spins around, rather than the symbols spinning from top to bottom.
Once you get your head around that, it’s kinda fun to watch as you see the images on the reels line up to create a whole symbol. And Yggdrasil Gaming could have been lazy and left it at that – just used the gimmicks of the new ways to win to draw you in.
But that’s not their way. Instead, you get a hot spot at the top of the reel. If you get a win in that Hot Spot, you then play a multiplier reel game where you spin a reel to get as many multipliers as possible until you hit a ‘collect’ symbol. This can be as little as 2x your bet, or as much as 101x your bet.
During the free spins, you get 8 segments rather than 6, giving you a total of 8 paylines and increasing your odds of getting a win. You are also always guaranteed to play with at least 2 Hot Spots.
If you trigger the free spins by getting the scatter in the Hot Spot in the base game, you may get yourself even more hot spots during the bonus games.
That said, remember that in many ways this shares a lot with a classic volatile 3 reeler – the wins can take their time to come and it’s not always easy to catch. But with a little patience, you’ll fall in love with this Fantasy beautiful game.

Hot Spot: During the base game the top section of the wheel is highlighted and is called the 'hot spot'.
If you get a win in this section, you trigger the multiplier wheel. Here you get to spin a wheel and catch multipliers. You keep spinning until you hit a collect symbol. So you may get a 2x multiplier all the way up to the maximum 101x multiplier.
Scatter and Free spins: Land 3 free spin scatter symbols anywhere to trigger 10 free spins. You are then guaranteed to play these spins with two hot spot zones and 8 sections, or 8 paylines instead of 6 paylines.
However, if you land any scatter symbol in the base game Hot Spot zone, you win yourself additional hots spots during the free spins.
One of the more peculiar Yggdrasil slots with peculiar paylines, this is wonderfully different and just strange enough to stand out.
It doesn't have reels or paylines in the way you expect, and it takes a while to get your head around how it pays.
It won't be for everyone, but we found that once we gave it a chance, we got used to the easy rhythm of watching those turning reels.
It's a little frustrating at times. The Hot Spot is clever, but the wins here are comparable to a classic slot machine - not all that easy to find, and even less on that particular Hot Spot.
Thank-god those Avatars Gateway Guardians slot free spin multiplier makes the feature shine bright and remind you why you keep coming back for more.
