A galactic adventure on a slightly ominous planet somewhere deep in space? Yes, please. Avatars: Gateway Guardians is the latest addition to Yggdrasil’s extensive library. And it is unlike anything you have seen before. It is an action-packed cocktail spread on 3 orbital reels that spin like 3 separate rings. Instead of standard reels, you hope to match three symbols on three rings in one simple spin. If you are not dizzy yet, let us see what else is stored in the new Yggdrasil title.
Avatars: Gateway Guardians boast only a couple of special features. The symbols rotate in the three circles to produce either wins or Free Spins. If you manage to land a winning line within the highlighted area on the grid, you will get a Multiplier as well. In a way, there is no need for more features. We guess that Yggdrasil thought the setup would be too baffling, so more features would be over the top.
What we do not like that much is the payout. As Yggdrasil announced, the max payout is €580,000 (or 2,525x the stake), which is generally a decent payout. However, given that the game boasts extra high volatility and a 96.3% RTP, it could have been better. Avatars: Gateway Guardians is built exclusively for the LeoVegas online casino as part of its LeoVegas Originals Series. You can play the game on multiple devices with bets from €0.20 to €200.SHOW MORESHOW MORESHOW LESS
This is an Yggdrasil title through and through. The choice of the theme that the game represents is uniquely representative of Yggdrasil Gaming, as is the design. The backdrop depicts a desolate, mysterious, and ominous place somewhere deep in space. Before we started playing, we thought this might be a play on one of Marvel’s movies, but no. The game revolves around fictional guardians of the gateway on a far-away planet. Details are excellent, especially when it comes to the icons. Speaking of symbols, you will stumble upon 8 different icons in the game. Four low-value icons are only dots with light. The high-value items are a group of four guardians – a purple, green, blue, and reddish one. The red one is worth the most – it can yield 40x your stake – but is the most elusive one.
The reel setup is not the standard one found in other slots. Yggdrasil, wanting to showcase something unique, devised a circular grid that functions as three separate rings. Each ring is divided into six parts, and your primary goal is to land a winning line of matching symbols on all three rings. The three rings represent three reels, while the six segments represent rows. In the base game, you play with 3×6 setup, while Free Spins bring more fun with the 3×8 setup.
To play the game, you will need to visit LeoVegas casino and locate it in the lobby. It is a part of the LeoVegas Originals Series, an exclusive line of top-notch video slots. The minimum bet that you can play with is €0.20. Of course, in true Yggdrasil fashion, the game is built for diverse audiences. High rollers will love the fact that they can enter and play with up to €200 per spin.
As we mentioned above, the game is not exactly teeming with various features. To lessen the confusion over the reels and spins, Yggdrasil incorporated only two special features. Here is what awaits you in Avatars: Gateway Guardians.
Yggdrasil put a lot of effort into creating this game. From the design to the technicalities behind the game, it is a great title. If you like fantasy games that are set in the future, Avatars: Gateway Guardians is a must-play.
Of course, one needs to pay attention to the volatility. It is high, and although the RTP is decent (96.3%), you will have to be very patient if you want to win. Payouts happen very rarely, so long dry spells are not infrequent.
Nevertheless, as soon as the free spins start rolling, all will be forgotten. The game is very engaging, especially in the beginning when you first encounter the unusual reel setup. Avatars: Gateway Guardians is located exclusively in the LeoVegas slot lobby. You can start spinning your galactic spins with just €0.20 per spin, on all devices.
