About Pragmatic Play
is a gaming company that designs and develops pokies, casino games, scratchcards and bingo software for some of the world's leading casinos. in around 80 countries worldwide, and it’s continuing to expand its reach into the global casino market. Once you've tried Asgard
for yourself, you'll understand what makes the brand so special.
Pragmatic Play is known for its striking and attractive pokies designs and Asgard does not disappoint on this front. The game, like most titles from this experienced brand, is colourful and eye-catching from the moment you first launch it.
How to play Asgard
As with most pokies, Asgard is simple to play so you can get started almost immediately after launching the game. The first thing you'll want to do - and this goes for any game when you first launch it - is to set your bet. Don't jump right in and hit the spin button when launching a new game for the first time, as many operators set the default bet pretty high and you might get a nasty surprise! To change your bet size, click on the buttons on either side of the spin button. Asgard has 25 paylines in total, and this is a fixed payline game. Some pokies allow you to choose how many lines you bet on, but this one doesn't. Every time you spin the reels, you will be betting on all 25 lines, meaning you will have an impressive 25 chances to hit a winning combo with each spin.

Asgard special symbols
The Wild is the game's logo. This can appear on all reels and substitutes all other game symbols apart from the Scatter. The Scatter is also the game's bonus symbol and is a dramatic looking mask. This can only appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 - the game's three central reels. Land three of these in one spin - in any position on the centre reels - and you will receive 2x your total bet. You will also trigger the special bonus game. Details of the bonus game can be found below.
Asgard special features
This is where things really get exciting, as there are several special features in this game. As with many online pokies free spins
are a great attraction here. But let's start with the bonus game, which you trigger by landing three Scatters on the central three reels in the base game. When you trigger the bonus game, one of four special features will be activated. These are as follows:
Royals turn into Wilds
If this is triggered, all the playing card symbols - 10, J, Q, K and A - turn into Wilds. Can you imagine the wins that are possible when this happens? Huge payouts are possible in this bonus game. You will receive five free spins, and any playing card symbols that land on the reels during these free spins will automatically become Wilds, just leaving the game's higher paying symbols on the screen.
Stacked wild reels
In this, the second of the four bonus game possibilities, you will also be awarded with five free spins. In this feature, the reels randomly become completely wild. This means the only symbol that appears on these reels is the Wild symbol. This can happen on any of the five reels, and can happen to multiple reels at once. As with the other bonus games, this one has huge payout potential if you get lucky!
Mystery stacked symbol
The third bonus game is the mystery symbol game. You'll notice a new symbol appearing on the reels as they spin in this feature. This symbol appears stacked, meaning you have a high chance of landing a lot of matching symbols across the reels during your free spins. Once the reels stop, this mystery symbol changes into one of the game's standard symbols and you'll be paid out accordingly if you've landed winning combos. Again, as this symbol is stacked, there is great potential for multiple wins in a single spin. You'll get five free spins in this game, too.
The final bonus game involves extra Wilds that rain down onto the reels, before they land. Three, four or five Wilds are added to the reels and will remain in place when the reels come to a halt. These Wilds can land anywhere on the reels. Again, you will receive five free spins in this game. The Wilds are removed before the next free spin starts, but then further Wilds will be added for that and all future free spins.
Once you've played for a while and tried out a few of the bonus games, you'll no doubt come to favour one over the others. While all have huge payout potential, the first two are particularly exciting and are capable of especially large payouts.
The game's other special feature is really four special features - the same four as above. While you will need to land three Scatters on the centre reels in order to activate the free spins and enjoy one of the four bonus games described above, you can receive any one of the bonus features during the base game. You'll just get one spin out of the feature, and it won't be free, as it will only be triggered once you've already hit the spin button. This is a great little extra, though, and enables you to experience these great bonus features to see what all the fuss is about.
Asgard on mobile and tablet
This is a great game to play on a smaller screen, as the brightly coloured symbols and striking design makes it much easier to see than some of the other darker and less distinctive pokies out there. You can play on desktop, laptop, mobile, tablet or any other compatible device.
