Yggdrasil: The Tree Of Life is a five reel, All PaysTM video slot from Microgaming based on a theme of Norse mythology. According to the ancient Norse chronicles all of creation existed upon the bow and branches of Yggdrasil – the World Tree. In the upper branches, the heavenly realms, towards the middle, the world of mortals, and with its base, the underworld where the evil serpent Nidhogg would constantly gnaw at its roots in a bid to bring about the end of the world.
This game captures the epic nature of this legend through superior sound and graphics as well as some thoroughly satisfying gameplay. The game itself takes place inside a wooden-style frame, representing the wood of the tree, while stirring orchestral music plays in the background. The game also features some highly accomplished graphical representations of other sacred creatures including squirrels, hawks, reindeer and the wicked serpent Nidhogg, along with card symbols.
The three areas of Yggdrasil are integral to the game, the Roots, Trunk and Branches. One begins at Root level and progress along and the higher you ascend, the higher your rewards.
