With a new quarter comes a new NetEnt roadmap! Q1 2018 is looking to be an excellent couple of months as NetEnt launches some great titles. Today we’re talking about Asgardian Stones, a new slot that sure to appeal to your inner Norse deity.
At this point, all we really have to go is the name. But what a name! Asgard, for the uninitiated, is one of nine mythical worlds of the Norse gods. Connected by the immense tree Yggdrasil, these worlds are home to different tribes of gods, one of which is the human-occupied Midgard.
Asgard is special in that it is where Odin, the god of war, death, poetry and wisdom, rules over the realm of Valhalla, an enormous hall that becomes home to those who die in combat. Along with his sons Thor and Loki, Odin has long been a mainstay of literature, film and even music!
So, what does this tell us about Asgardian Stones? The first thing that came to mind were runes, the Germanic alphabet used in to depict many Anglo-Saxon languages since about 150 AD. These symbols are synonymous with Norse myth as many records of these legends were written in runes.
Thor and Loki, in part thanks to their recent movie screen presence, are also possible protagonists on this slot. It is worth noting that this is not NetEnt’s first foray into Norse legend and indeed, these deities have featured on the incredibly popular jackpot game Hall of Gods.
It’s also not NetEnt’s first foray into the nuanced world of mythical stones. The Secret of the Stones slot also has a similar theme although that title focuses on Celtic mythology and symbols.
All in all, we’re very interested to see what NetEnt comes up with but no one is worried – if there’s something we can count on, it’s NetEnt’s creative approach to themes and ideas! We eagerly await the 22nd February to find out.
The NetEnt roadmap for the first months of 2018 makes for compelling reading for slots fans. Aside from Asgardian Stones, NetEnt has lined up several slot releases. These are:
