North Guardians Overview
Only two weeks ago Pragmatic Play released a game called Eye of Cleopatra. That game used wild patterns that could appear during base game and free spins feature which were placed on the reels.
Now Pragmatic Play released North Guardians which also uses wild patterns, but in a different way and even with several levels.
The game uses a Nordic warrior theme. Very viking or Norse mythology. A theme we’ve seen several times before. Even from Pragmatic Play. You’ll find different warriors, weapons and runes.
North Guardians uses 5 reels that are each 5 symbols high and comes with 50 lines. Normal symbols may appear stacked on all reels. And you will also find wild symbols and bonus symbols on all reels.
The maximum win for North Guardians is 5.000 times your bet, which is a bit of standard for Pragmatic Play.
North Guardians Features
Wild Patterns Wheel
The main focus of North Guardians is the Wild Patterns Wheel on the right of the reels.
During the base game two small, half symbols, move around the reels, behind the regular symbols. When these symbols meet on the same spot, completing the symbol, the wheel on the right will spin. This wheel will show different wild patterns or a level up. When it lands on level up, it will instantly spin again on the next level. If it lands on a pattern, that wild pattern will be added onto the reels, after which you are paid.
The wheel has 5 levels and each level will have better wild patterns. The final level, level 5 even has a fully wild pattern.
Free Spins Feature
3 or more bonus symbols will award 5 free spins.
During free spins the Wild Patterns Wheel is active during each spin. And will also not reset between levels.
Each time the wheel lands on a new level you are awarded with 2 more free spins and 1 more free spin for the final, 5th, level.
Some casinos will offer the option to buy the free spins feature for 100 times your bet.
Although this game came pretty quickly after Eye of Cleopatra, which also uses a wild patterns feature. It think this one does it better.
I really like the wheel that has 5 different levels and will give better and better patterns with each new level. This especially is a lot of fun during free spins where the levels don’t reset. And level 5 is amazing, since you can even get a full screen of wilds.
The theme is ok, it’s a bit overdone, but it looks nice. And I know a lot of players like the Nordic theme.
