The God of Thunder is upon us and he’s making it rain! Well, not literally, because his hammer only brings thunder, hence the name. But in Microgaming’s video slot Fortunes of Asgard, Thor brings the coins raining down on you.
This 5 reel slot with 20 fixed paylines comes with an RTP of 96.10% and whisks you away into the middle of ancient Norse mythology. Having a medium volatility, you can be sure to come across some decent wins and you don’t even have to wait for ages.
We, for one, loved diving into the mythical world of Thor and his underworld-ruling sister Hellia and we can’t wait to tell you all about it. Choose your allegiance between those two read on if you want to know, what’s in it for you!
Everybody knows by now that Thor is the God of Thunder and that he resides in Asgard with his father Odin. The younger generation might know him in the form of buff Australian actor Chris Hemsworth from the Marvel movies, but the Thor from this slot has been around much longer than the thunder from down under (no, wait….that’s still a different thing).
Fortunes of Asgard is based in the ancient Norse mythology and stars Thor and the ruler of the underworld Hellia as his antagonist. The graphics are beautiful, as you’re playing against the backdrop of the mythical land of Asgard with it’s magically floating islands and the golden palace of Odin.
You can follow the struggles of Thor, as he takes on his arch nemesis with the blue hair and the magnificent antlers. Watch them go head to head in a battle of wits against brute strength, with Thor wielding his mighty hammer Mjölnir and Hellia striking back with…a book (that reading material better be magical!).
We already explained briefly that Fortunes of Asgard is a 5 reel video slot with 20 fixed paylines. And after we got over our amazement and awe about the brilliant design, we couldn’t help but also fall in love with the cool and numerous bonus features.
The Wild symbol comes in the form of a thunderstorm with lots of lightning and substitutes for all other symbols, except the Scatter and the Bonus symbols to create winning combinations – as wild symbols are wont to do.
The high paying symbols are represented by our protagonist and antagonist, as well as their weapons and shield, while the low paying symbols, as usual, come in the form of golden 10, J, Q, K and A.

Explore Fortunes of Asgard Symbols
Before every spin you can choose your allegiance to the God of Thunder and select the Thor Feature.
If this feature is activated and a Mjölnir hammer lands horizontally adjacent to Thor, all the currently visible symbols on that reel will turn into wild symbols.
This will boost your chances of winning immensely and light some fire under those reels.
If the dark side is more your thing, you should activate the Hellia feature before your spin. This means pretty much, that you’re selling your soul to the devil, but this gorgeous lady from the underworld packs quite the punch, so we don’t blame you there.
If the magical book lands horizontally adjacent to Hellia herself, the Hellia symbol will turn into a wild symbol and will stay sticky for a respin.
This can create some lovely winning combinations, or you might even be able to trigger one of the other bonus features on your additional free spin.
After every winning spin, you can go full-on Vegas on Thor’s butt and gamble your win in an effort to multiply your coins. You might also lose everything, so choose wisely.
The gamble feature is a simple double or nothing picking game. You have to choose red or black and if the card is being turned over and the color matches, you’ll double your win. If it doesn’t match, your winning spin was for naught.
You can gamble a maximum of four times after each winning spin, then it’s back to the game.
If three or more Scatters, in the form of a rainbow road to the palace appear on your reels, you’ll be awarded free spins, depending on how many of the symbols you landed.
3 Scatters will award you 10 free spins
4 Scatters will award you 15 free spins
5 Scatters will award you 25 free spins
During the free spin mode, both the Thor and the Hellia features are activated, so you can expect decent wins during this mode.
Three Bonus symbols, represented by the palace and the word BONUS, are required to trigger the pick bonus game.
Once you’re in the bonus round, you’ll be able to pick galaxies and win cash prices. You can pick until you select the galaxy saying “Collect”. This will tally up your wins and it’s back to the main game. When you end the bonus game with the collect pick, you’ll be rewarded with a default 1.25x multiplier.
Payouts and Wagering Limits
The reels in Fortunes of Asgard will bend to your will for as little as $0.20 (those cheap little so-and-so’s). If you’re up for a little more you can hike up the stakes, but only as far as to $10, which isn’t exactly something to write home about.
If you think about the jackpot in this game being 1.000x your stake and the possibility to bag yourself up to 6262.5x your stake in the free spin round, that looks a little better already, though.
The RTP is only 96.10%, which is the average, but you would think that the God of Thunder himself might be a little more generous. With the medium variance of the slot, you’ll have a decent chance to trigger one of the various bonus features though and that’ll secure you some decent wins in the end.
While Fortunes of Asgard might not be the number one slot for the high rollers among you, all the other players should happily spin away and enjoy the ride in this video slot with the most compelling back story.
Fortunes of Asgard
If you’re as much of a fan of ancient Norse mythology as we are, then this is the slot for you. You’ll get lost in the gorgeous graphics and the exciting story of a clash of the gods. But even, if you’re indifferent to this particular branch of ancient lore, you’ll have a blast with Fortunes of Asgard.
The story and the design of the slot are good enough to impress just about everyone and the bonus features will keep you on the edge of your seat for hours on end.
So, grab your magic hammer and make those coins rain, as you step into the shoes of the God of Thunder (or the ruler of the underworld, whatever floats your boat. We don’t judge).
