North Guardians Review
There are many Viking inspired slots out there covering the full extent of Norse mythology, but there aren't any others with the same gameplay as North Guardians.
Developed by Pragmatic Play, this slot features a free spins round as well as a unique Wild Pattern Wheel leading to different levels and added wilds to the reels.
Like most Pragmatic Play slots, North Guardians looks fantastic. There is a full world created in the distance with an ice kingdom in distance with falling snow and flames glowing.
On the reels, there are a variety of warriors including a grisly bearded man and a beautiful pink-haired girl each with unique markings on their face. In addition to the characters, there are also swords, runes and other Viking related items.
The music in this slot is something you'd expect in Game of Thrones with an epic orchestra of music creating a dark tone for the slot.
There are 5-reels with 50 paylines in this slot but the fun really starts with the Wild Pattern Wheel that adds wilds to the reels and has different levels. When this is upgraded during free spins, additional spins are added.
At the bottom of the screen, there is the spin button and the bet level here. Further to the left, there is an information button in case you need additional help.
It all starts off strong with an RTP of 96.46% which is over the average level. There is also a high volatility level leading to larger wins but less frequently.
Sadly, the maximum win for this slot is quite standard for Pragmatic Play at 5,000x your stake. However, this is lower than we'd expect for an online slot - but it's not completely terrible.
With Pragmatic Play as the developers, we knew that North Guardians would be a solid game and thankfully we were blown away by the unique Wild Pattern Wheel that completely changed the game for us.
Hopefully, this mechanic will continue on in a few other Pragmatic Play slots as it's thrilling and so satisfying to watch. For an entertaining ride from start to finish, check out North Guardians.
