- Another Viking-themed game but with a twist
- Separate wheel can lead to lots of wilds
- Free spins bonus helps to achieve the big wins
If you like Nordic-themed games, North Guardians slot from Pragmatic Play may be for you. It has a nice theme and a good design, though I have to admit it could easily be confused with many others out there as it’s becoming quite overused. What does stand out is the reel on the side, and this has a special purpose as we’ll soon see. For now though, let’s talk basics. Simply spin the reels and try to get a winning combination along one of the 50 pay lines on the 5×5 grid. The symbols to look out for are:
- Dark Green, Purple or Blue Rune
- Green or Red Rune
There is a wild symbol too, shown as Odin, that substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the free spin symbol. It’s also more valuable than any other symbols in the game.

North Guardians Slot Bonuses and Features
Wild Patterns Wheel. You’ll notice when you spin the reels that two halves of a rectangle move around to random positions. Eventually, they will land on the same position and merge. Then, the wheel on the right will show a wild pattern, stopping on a slice or a level up. Wilds are added in the pattern shown on a random position on the screen. There are 5 levels in total, and the higher the level the more wilds are added to the screen.
Free Spins Bonus. This is triggered by landing 3 or more scatter symbols anywhere on the screen at the same time. The number of spins you receive is always the same, but 3 scatters gives you a 2x rewards, 4 scatters a 10x reward and 5 scatters and 100x reward. You’ll then receive 5 free spins, and on each of these the extra wheel will spin. It starts at level 1, and a level up will increase this by 1, up to a maximum of 5. Each level up awards more free spins, with the 1st one giving you 3 more spins, the 2nd 2 more spins, the 3rd another 2 spins and the 4th a single spin.
North Guardians slot from Pragmatic Play is another Nordic-themed game, this one with a bit of a twist thanks to the special will pattern reel on the side of the regular set of reels. When activated, it can add quite a lot of wilds to the screen and it’s a nice touch to make the patterns in the shape of old runes. In the free spins bonus, it triggers on every spin and you can level up to trigger better patterns. This makes it much easier to achieve the 5,000x win potential, though personally I think it would have been nice to make this is a bit higher. All in all, it’s not a bad slot though some additional features would have made it more interesting.
