Packed with Norse symbols and Wilds in the shape of an angry Odin, the North Guardians slot by Pragmatic Play boasts a Wild Patterns wheel round that will have you wishing to match the Norse symbol lurking on the reels, thus adding more Wilds or even levelling up to award patters with more Wilds!
The Norse lands fall under the jurisdiction of the North Guardians, which are kind of what Heimdall is for Asgard, if you may. Nothing escapes the immortal Vikings’ eye, ready to risk their lives for the safety of all Pragmatic Play slots with a Norse touch, such as the Asgard slot, the Power of Thor Megaways slot, and the Book of Vikings slot.
How to Play
The North Guardians slot is far from being your average Norse slot. With an unusual 5×5 reel layout and a Norse symbol moving randomly on the reels, behind the rest of the symbols, trying to find its better half, this online slot gives you a sneak peek of what being a guardian for the Norse gods is like.
Symbols in this online slot include two guardians, a coin, a shield, an axe, and a Gjallarhorn (Viking horn), along with other frozen stones with Norse engraving.

How to Win
WILD PATTERN WHEEL – this type of feature is new in Pragmatic Play’s slots portfolio, although a similar version can be played in the Eye of Cleopatra slot. In the North Guardians slot, this bonus round is all about matching the two halves of the same symbol that are moving to random positions on the reels on each spin. If they stop on the same cell and merge to become a whole, a wheel showing patterns with Wild symbols will appear on the right of the reels. The wheel starts spinning, with two options to land on:
- Slices displaying a Wild pattern
- Level up Slices
If the wheel stops on a Wild pattern, Wild Symbols will start moving on the screen, arranging themselves in the exact shape shown by the pattern, in a random place on the grid.
However, things can get particularly spicy if the wheel stops at a Level up slice. The game has five levels, each with its own Wild patterns. A level is randomly selected every time you level up, thus unlocking new patterns.
Level 1 comes with Wild patterns of up to 3 symbols, while Level 2 works with up to 6 Wild Symbols. At Level 3, you’ll have Wild patterns consisting of up to 10 instances, whereas the 4th Level brings up to 15 Wilds in a pattern. The last and most desired level unlocks patterns with up to 25 Wilds, which means a screen full of Wilds!
FREE SPINS FEATURE – you can activate this round with three Free Spins symbols on the grid. During the five awarded Free Games, the wheel starts at Level 1 and spins on each Free Game, stopping at either a Wild pattern or a Level up one. The levels are activated consecutively, from Level 1 to Level 5, and not randomly, like in the base game.
A new level also comes with more Free Spins as follows:
- When going from Level 1 to Level 2, you are awarded 3 Free Spins
- When going from Level 2 to Level 3, you are awarded 2 Free Spins
- When going from Level 3 to Level 4, you are awarded 3 Free Spins
- When going from Level 4 to Level 5, you are awarded 1 Free Spin
BUY FREE SPINS OPTION – you can purchase the Free Spins for 100x the total bet.
The reels are set on a wintery backdrop, with frozen flames burning on both sides of the screen. A cold, dry wind blows forcefully, matching the action-packed soundtrack that’s bound to keep you on the edge of your seat.
Join the Norse guardians in their quest to protect the northern border, behind which unimaginable dangers lurk in the shadows. Suit up for an epic adventure loaded with Wild Patterns, Free Spins, and winnings of up to 5,000x the bet that only a thrilling title like the North Guardians slot can offer.
