I am happy that RTG released a decent slot even if it is hard as balls to win on.

However! Some people have already been screwed by an interesting bug... The Loki feature is broken in most cases.

I made a test video of the feature and as you can see in it, I got the "special wild" 6 times and each time I got it... NOTHING HAPPENED!

I saw a few streamers who played on this slot with real money get screwed by this bug. I dunno how RTG managed to miss this issue. The good news is that one of the streamers reported it and now RTG is taking a look at it, but the game is still playable at the casinos when it should have been taken down IMO.

I've had the Loki feature 2 or 3 times - and every time it DID give me extra wilds (This was a few days ago).
So yeah - it looks like it broke! :eek:

Haha its nuts isnt it, cant deny its a good game though...well for the short amount of time I played, I had fun.
The 'loki" thing is interesting, wonder how long it will take RTG to fix the broken?

Hi Sonict,

I can confirm that RTG was informed about the concerns some players have and they looking into it.

I just watched your video and from the game rules I cannot see a winning combination. The WILD is not a winning combination with other symbols. Also WILD randomly replaces symbols on up to 5 reels when it appears. So it is not guaranteed.

Loki's Magic
  • This feature is unlocked from the 5th trigger onwards.
  • 20 free games are awarded, with "WILD" added to reel 3.
  • "Wild" counts for all symbols except scatters and Golden Wild.
  • "Wild" randomly replaces symbols on up to 5 reels when it appears.
  • "Wild" does not replace any Golden Wild appearing.
  • 2, 3, 4 or 5 Bonus appearing during these free games will add 1, 2, 3 or 4 extra free games, respectively.
  • Scatters are counted before any extra "Wild" are added to the reels.
When I will receive any info from RTG I will update the thread.

Kind Regards,
Karolina

"Wild" randomly replaces symbols on up to 5 reels when it appears.
This is the rule which the slot is NOT performing.
It says "Wild randomly replaces" - meaning it always does this.
Otherwise they would have written "Wild CAN randomly replace..."

I tried it again (on mobile this time) and the first time the wild appeared it did give extra wilds - but when it appeared again (2 or 3 times) nothing happened.

99.9% sure it's a bug. On the MG version you always get at least 1 extra wild.

I think the bug is that it gives the animation ONLY when it would provide the wilds in a combination that would produce a win, unlike MG's which does the pointless animations when firing dead wilds onto reels 4 and/or 5. The RTG version I believe skips the graphics when no win will occur.

Sort of like Book Of Dead was the best slot Novomatic Play'n Go had come out with in a long time?? :D

Hi All,

I can confirm that RTG checked the game and the Asgard slot works as expected, there is no bug. More likely misunderstanding of the rules.

I took 2 screenshot from the video presented in this thread and pay outs are correct. Please see the attachment:

Asgard Ticket 121085.png

Pic 1:
There are 2 varhalla in Reel 2 Column 1 and Reel 1 Column 2, then there is a silver WILD in Reel 1 Column 3.

This triggers the pay for 3 Valhalla (because of the substitute). According to the game rule: 3 Valhalla = 15X Bet Per Line.

The Bet Per Line = $0.60 / 30 = $0.02

And $0.02 * 15 = $0.30 The payout of that specific game.

Pic 2:
The same thing happens in the second screenshot, instead of Valhalla, the payout is formed with Jacks or J's. Those do not appear because of the animation, but the payout is correct. 3 Jacks = 7X BPL = 7*$0.02 = $0.14.

RTG also confirmed that they will provide more specific description for this game so player can use self service facility in game rules and check the game specifics.

Kind Regards,
Karolina

With respect - you are COMPLETELY missing the point.

No-one has said the game doesn't PAY correctly - but that it doesn't PLAY correctly.
Please scroll back up and re-read my last post, and dunover's right after mine.

Yeah there is no way this game is playing correctly from what I have seen of it. This is a very obvious bug. Karolina you are looking into it paying correctly and not playing it.

Sit down and play it for awhile and you will see what everyone is talking about. Now sure how the designer is disagreeing here. Have they even bothered to try it?

I'm not sure how MG's works, but from what I have read, if the game is working correctly what this means is it's very hard to get wilds to appear in a winning combination? Also if that is the case is MG's also very hard to get a duplicating wild on a payline?

yes, only 1 in 3 or 4 appearances in the MG version of the Wild Vine will result in wins, unless the first 2 reels have a match when it appears. If often appears with no 1/2 match and fires useless Wilds only to the right on reels 4 and 5. The RTG version seems to have this animation missing.

I just reached the Loki stage and on the very first spin got an extra wild got another 2 spins with extra wilds, one of the spins put an extra wild on a line that was a no pay spin.

Yes, I tried it again last night and got extra wilds twice which produced no wins.
Maybe they have fixed it but not actually admitted it was ever wrong...?

As with the first time I played it - I got on a pretty good run and was a few $100's up on $2.40 spins, so threw in some $7.50 ones... and luckily caught the Loki feature twice.
The first paid bet x80.7 ($605.50), the second one just crept over the x100 mark...
