Is it possible to get a 1 million ways to win slot machine? It’s certainly possible in this Pillars of Asgard slot, but you may want to read the review before you jump in.
When you load up this Pillars of Asgard mobile slot it will boast that you’ll be able to get more ways to win than even Megaways slots.
And that’s true. But not for long, or maybe not even in one play session. What you’ve got, really, is 6 reels with 4096 ways to win full of Mythological Viking symbols – from Runes, Odin and jewels crowns, to the Norse morphing of Ace to 9.
But what makes this a little different from the likes of the North Storm slot, for example, is that you have the beautiful Rainbow Bridge, welcoming you to the ancient cosmic city of Asgard. In fact, it reminds us of Asgard from comic books more than old Norse mythology.
You’ll notice that at the top of the reels you’ll get a multiplier reel. This is triggered when one or more wilds show up on the screen – one wild means you’ll probably get x2 or x3 multiplier, or you could get 6 wild and get a x8 or x10 multiplier.
But what you’ll be looking to find is 3 or more scatters. The more the merrier, because whilst you’ll always trigger 20 free games, how many extra rows you get depends on how many scatters you find.
Mostly you’ll get 3 scatters, with one extra row of symbols with 15,635 Ways to Win. Or you can get as many as 6 scatters get 4 extra rows and 262,144 Ways to win.
So how do you get to 1 million ways? You get a scatter on the reels, and that expands that one reel by one row. Reach the maximum of 5 extra rows (or 10 rows in total), and you’ll get an additional 5 free spins.
Getting to that top 10 rows of symbols on any one reel is tough. Almost impossible, if we are honest. But that’s not to say that there aren’t some fantastic wins even if you don’t manage to get all 6 reels with 10 rows.
We played for 2 hours and didn’t trigger it. We would probably come back and try again. If you do manage to do it, you’ll apparently get a wild reel on every single spin left – which would certainly be worth watching.
And it does have a nice generous paytable, especially if you can open up those reels. A good addition to the Viking slots genre, bringing a little bit of magic to a well-known theme.
Word of warning though: some version of this game allows you to buy the free spin bonus for 80x your bet, some don’t. We generally prefer not to have that available (too tempting to overspend – a personal opinion), but we understand that it can be fun, especially if you’re a high limit slot player.

Wild Multiplier: All wins with a wild will give you a multiplier. How big a multiplier depends on how many wilds are on the screen. A wild symbol can be used to replace any other symbol in order to create a win.
Scatters and Free Spins: 3 or more scatter symbols will trigger 20 Free Games. You get an extra row depending on the triggering scatters:
During the free game, each scatter than lands on a reel will increase the reel upwards by one position, up to a maximum amount of 10 rows of symbols.
Odin's Blessing Bonus: If any one reels reach the 10-row position, you get Odin's Blessing. You'll re-trigger 5 free games and all scatters on that reel will now be a wild.
Rise of Odin Bonus: If you manage to get all 6 reels 10 rows high, you get 1 million ways to win. Odin wakes up and gives you a wild stack covering one reel for the remainder of the reel rise feature. It moves on each spin, from reel to reel, but always remains in view.
Buy Pass (if applicable): On some version of the game, you can buy the bonus feature for 80x your bet. Or you can take a chance and play a win or lose game for a percentage of your bet multiplied. The RTP of the game increases from 96.104% to 96.552%.
Gamble Feature: After any win, you can gamble your win in a double or nothing card game. You can either guess the colour of the next card in a deck, and double your win. Or you can guess the next suit in the deck of cards, and quadruple your bet. If you guess wrong, you lose your initial win.
We like this Pillars of Asgard slot on mobile, though we can easily understand why some won't.
It's big, you'll need a lot of expanded reels to get the big wins, and it's a very volatile slot machine.
But if you like Megaways games like the Bonanza slot, then this should be a natural progression, as you keep trying to catch wilds and scatter symbols in order to get big multipliers and bigger ways to win.
Just watch for whichever version you play - you can get a better RTP when you find a machine with the Buy Pass, but the temptation to throw big bucks at this game can be too much for some.
Don't forget, getting a million ways to win is the equivalent of winning a jackpot in the Mega Fortune Dreams slot review.
It's there, there's win even without it, but it's fun to dream that you might just catch it.
