We know that the year has just started, so it might just be a little early to say that any game could be the best slot of 2018.

But this Asgardian Stones by NetEnt has the right elements to make things interesting come the 22nd of February.

And whilst we know that many would say that Twin Spin Deluxe looks like the more exciting game, we’d disagree.

Let us show you exactly why with a quick video.

As usual, we’ve got a video of what you can expect from this upcoming new phone slot. If you don’t have time to see it all, we will discuss it at length afterwards.

Now, we know that we stretched the meaning of the word ‘quick’, as this video is almost 4 minutes long.

But you know what? They have a lot to show for a game that doesn’t actually have as many features as it might imply.

And that’s not a bad thing.

First: let’s talk the Viking Norse theme

With a name like the Asgardian Stones video slot, you knew straight away that the old Norse gods were involved in the theme.

However, don’t make the mistake to think that this has anything to do with the Asgardians from the Marvel cinematic universe.

NetEntertainment may have offices all over the world, but their heart lies in Sweden, home of the Vikings.

And whilst they are no doubt playing on the popularity of the Thor movies, this is far more traditional in look and theme.

This is the game studio whose one of the most popular jackpot slots of 2017 was Hall of Gods. They are staying true to their heritage.

Gonzo’s quest but in a fantastical northern Valhalla?

It’s impossible not to compare this new NetEnt phone game with it’s most iconic slot of its collection; the brilliant Gonzo’s Quest.

The stones fall and look similar. Granted, one is ancient Aztec Runes, whilst the other is ancient Norse runes from the other side of the world… but… Come on, tell us you didn’t see it.

The fact that the avalanche feature make the stones tumble down onto the screen with similar sounds helps make that connection, as does the increasing multipliers on the side of the reel.

But, honestly, after that, the similarities seem to end.

What will make Asgardian Stones special

Even if you saw the video, you might be wondering why another Viking type slot, with cascading symbols and multipliers, excited us so much.

We’ve come a long way since Gonzo’s Quest, and we’ve seen so many copies and re-iterations of this mobile and tablet game, so how can they make another stand out?

By giving it a special NetEnt twist.

The colossal symbols crush the competition

At any one point, a 2×2 or 3×3 symbol can appear on the screen.

Anyone who’s played on games like Spinata Grande or Top O The Money by Novomatic know how effective these can be.

However, in this Asgardian slot game, you only ever get one on screen; which makes sense because a block of symbols like that will generally help create a win and increase the multiplier.

What makes this truly interesting, however, is that it doesn’t always show fully – some of it can be hidden above the reel.

We mean that literally… it will CRUSH the wins

There’s that word again: the Colossal Crush. Namely, because the symbol can fall down and literally crush extra symbols underneath it; especially after a win.

And anyone who has ever played in avalanche reels will tell you, the more symbols disappear from view, the higher your chance of getting further wins along the way.

And bigger multipliers; let’s not forget those.

You can win up to 2,000 times your bet in one paying spin

Here’s the big draw of any casino game on mobile we’ve ever played. It’s ability to give you a big win on any one spin.

With most you have to wait for the bonus games or the free spins, but not with this Asgardian Stones NetEnt slot. Any spin, at any point, can lead to a culmination of big wins of up to 2,000 times your bet.

Not the highest out there, but generous enough to make this a highly anticipated release.

That’s because, unlike games like Gonzo’s Quest or Cool Wolf by Microgaming, the multipliers don’t increase during the bonus games.

But it will be easier to win big in the Asgardian Stones free spins

Of course, that’s not to say that the free spins will all be for nothing, as they do hold an extra ace up their sleeve.

Remember those colossal stones we were talking about, during the free spin bonus games, these can now be a wild symbol. A huge mega big 3×3 wild stone symbol.

Do the maths and you’ll see that hitting that 4x multiplier after 4 wins just gets easier if you have more wilds on screen.

Keeping you on the edge of your seat with the Bonus wheel

It seems like this Asgardian slot is all about building anticipation.

From the colourful reels full of stone symbols to those huge colossal stones that drop and crush symbols, and those rising multipliers, it’s was hard to keep our eyes off the screen during the video.

We suspect it will be harder whilst you hold this game on your Android phone or iPhone, eagerly anticipating the next avalanche of wins.

Because did we mention that the way to win instant cash prizes and free spins was via a huge colossal bonus wheel that can land in full view, or partially on screen?

No? Guess we’ll all have to wait until the 22nd of January 2018 to get the full glory and see if we are right as to whether it will be one of the best games of 2018.

Till then, there’s always 20 free spins on Starburst to enjoy when you signup to Casumo casino.
