Players are adventuring into a frozen wasteland where Vikings battle during a blizzard in Pragmatic Play’s daring title, North Guardians.


Out now




North Guardians is a 5×5, 50-payline video slot that incorporates a maximum win potential of up to x5,000 the bet.






Symbols in the game include five runic slates offering x0.48 to x0.8 the bet for combinations of five-of-a-kind. These are followed by mid-pays represented by axes, horseshoes, horns and coins, paying out x1.2 to x3.6 the bet for five-of-a-kind. 

Lastly, the two premium symbols appear in the form of a female and male viking, worth x6 to x10 the bet for five-of-a-kind. 

Moving onto special symbols, wilds are represented by Odin, landing anywhere on the reels and substituting for all regular-pays. These payout x15 the bet for five on a line.

Lastly, free spins symbols are used to activate the free spins bonus.


The title incorporates a free spins bonus, a wild pattern wheel and a bonus buy option.


Starting with the free spins bonus, this starts with five spins. During the bonus, the wheel spins and stops at every spin. When the round starts, the wheel is at level one. Any level up for the wheel that happens during the round will increase the level until the end of the round, up to level five. Every time a level up happens, more free spins are awarded. 

In the base game, two halves of a marking rectangle appear as an underlay on the screen. At every spin, the two halves move to random positions and if they stop on the same position and merge into a full rectangle, after the spin, a wheel showing wild patterns starts spinning and will stop on a slice or a level up.

When the wheel stops on a pattern, wild symbols are put on the screen according to the shape and number of the wilds in the pattern, in a random position on the grid. The wheel has five levels, each with different possible wild patterns. In the base game, every time the feature occurs, one of the levels is selected randomly.

As a final incentive, the free spins bonus can be instantly triggered from the base game at the cost of x100 the bet.


Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play, remarked: “Players enjoyed the addition of wild patterns in recent release Eye of Cleopatra, so including this feature in North Guardians while also adding additional mechanics and an upgradable pattern system within a popular Viking theme has created a standout hit. 

“North Guardians has the ability to award players huge wins up to x5,000 and this along with the innovative wild wheel system is sure to be an instant draw for players.”
