Appearance and Sound Effects
Fortunes of Asgard is a well-designed and creative slot game. Before you start, you will select your character either Thor or Hellia. No matter which character you choose you will be taken to the same screen where the reels sit on the mythological kingdom of Asgard. On the reels themselves, you have lower value and higher value symbols.
The low-value symbols are the playing card symbols of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. The higher value is theme related symbols and include magical books, shields, and hammers. You also have our two characters Thor and Hellia appearing in symbol form. The lightning bolt is the wild symbol.
The wild symbol on Fortunes of Asgard is the lightning bolt symbol. This is our first special symbol as it can substitute for all other symbols on the game in order to help complete winning combinations on active paylines.
Before you start the game, you will choose your character Thor or Hellia. This selection is not fixed and you can change at any given time by clicking the alternative character at the side of the reels. The character you are playing with at the time of the spin will determine the base game bonus which is active. When playing with Hellia if you land her next to a book, she will become wild and freeze in place for the next spin. When playing with Thor landing him next to his hammer turns the reel with Thor completely wild.
There are a further two bonus features. The first is the free spins where up to twenty-five free spins can be awarded. Landing three, four or five of the scatter symbol will award the player with between fifteen and twenty free spins. Both the Thor and Hellia features are active during this bonus feature.
