North Guardians Slot (Pragmatic Play)

North Guardians Slot (Pragmatic Play)Viking warriors never seem to go out of style, at least not in slot machines. North Guardians is the latest to rely on this feature, and the slot was released by Pragmatic Play which means that you can expect some of the best features inside.

Still, the developer opted for a rather crowded category, and I will share my experience playing the slot for real money:

Game Set-Up

North Guardians rely on a 5x5 reels design, with up to 50 active lines.

I loved its features which include wilds, free spins, and Wild Pattern Wheel among others.

Betting and Prizes

I was excited to try out this slot for real money, and $0.50 is the minimum amount that you can use to play North Guardians. This is a little higher compared to what I have seen as the starting prize on other slots, but it seems to cater to all levels of player given that, the MAX bet prize per spin is $250.

When it comes to top payout, North Guardians doesn’t do very badly, and the slot can pay up to 5,000x the stake, from one spin.

I’m also very impressed by its RTP of 96.38% which is above the average given by many modern slots.

North Guardians Slot Features

The Wild is among the major features of the slot, and it comes in the image of Odin (old Viking king). As usual, it is the feature that you will use to substitute other regular symbols.

Another great feature is the Wild Pattern Wheel, and it appears on the right part of the game area. To activate it, you need to match two halves of one of the symbols.

Once the Wheel appears, it will spin and you either get a pattern of wilds (these will be added to the slot’s reels), or a Level Up. It is a feature that comes with five levels, and once you get the Level Up, you gain access to a more powerful feature that will boost the Wild patterns (in the paid spin this is random).

With at least 3 scatters displaying on the reels, North Guardians rewarded me with 5 free spins. Also, with each round, I got access to the Wild Pattern Wheel and this way, you are guaranteed either several random wilds or in other cases, an upgrade to this feature.

Theme & Design

As earlier mentioned, North Guardians is a Viking-themed slot machine, and the action takes place in a tundra, which may not be the most inviting place.

Pragmatic Play has given the slot a fair list of symbols that include low-pay rune stones that come in various colours (red, grey, pink, blue, and green).

Top symbols include an axe, horns, shields, and coins, not to forget the two Viking warriors. The major features are an Odin Wild and the Free Spins scatter.


North Guardian is a great slot thanks to its Nordic theme that is accompanied by unique features and some modern graphics.

I had lots of fun playing the game and I can recommend it to all levels of players.
