You could hardly find 2 more opposite slot themes than Viking warriors and gum but both feature in new slot release this week, namely Fortunes of Asgard and Big Prize Bubblegum.
Fortunes of Asgard – Bla Bla Bla Studios/Microgaming
Fortunes of Asgard is a 5 reel, 20 payline, epic Norse-themed slot from Bla Bla Bla Studios and Microgaming that comes with superb design and 2 classic bonus features. The setting here is Asgard, 1 of the 9 realms of Norse legend.
Your first choice is whether to play in Thor or Hellia mode. The wild extra differs depending on which mode you choose. In Thor mode, hope to see the hammer land next to Thor which transforms the whole of that row wild.
In Hellia mode, it’s the book that has the magical properties. When it lands next to Hellia, the goddess becomes wild and will remain in position for the next spin. There are 2 feature rounds on offer regardless of which mode you choose.
Landing 3 bonus symbols triggers the Pick Bonus feature – it’s a classic pick me round where choosing realms reveals cash prizes. 3 or more scatters triggers the Free Spins feature where you can look forward to 10, 15 or 25 free spins. Here, both Thor and Hellia features come into play!
There’s been a glut of Norse themed games in recent months. With its superb sound and visuals and range of extras, this is among the better ones and well worth considering. Read the Fortunes of Asgard slot review for more details.
Big Prize Bubblegum – Incredible Technologies/NextGen Gaming
The second new arrival is about as far from Norse myth and legend as you can get. Big Prize Bubblegum is a 5 reel, 1,024 ways to win slot from Incredible Technologies and NextGen Gaming. The simple visuals are far removed from Fortunes of Asgard but the features are more familiar.
Land 1 of the bronze, silver or gold coins and you’ll receive 1, 5 or 10 free spins. There’s various retriggers available meaning you can play with up to 100 free spins in total. You’ll also get the Pick Until You Pop Bonus feature – this offers awards of up to 15 times your stake as well as multipliers and mystery prizes.
This sweet-themed slot will likely be something of an acquired test and the colourful, extremely sugary design certainly won’t be for everyone. If you can survive the sensory overload then the features can in Big Prize Bubblegum can live up to their name and deliver some very decent action.
