The Valhalla slot game is another machine that was brought to us by the team at NextGen Gaming. The game was released in April 2017 so it is a relatively recent addition to the market, which you can tell when you open up the machine.
The Valhalla slot has cartoon graphics and a very likeable, simple feel to it. There is a dark background to the game which really makes the reels stand out. You can play the Valhalla slot on all desktop, mobile and tablet devices.
Valhalla is another game that takes us into Norse mythology. Valhalla is one of the gods of that ancient world and that is the story behind this Viking themed slot. There are five reels in the Valhalla game and 10 paylines in total.
There are a number of different icons in play in the Valhalla slot game. They begin with the regular playing cards – 10, J, Q, K and A but there are also axes, shields, helmets, horns and longships. It is the latter that pays the most of the regular icons.
There is also a wild symbol, which in this game is Valkyrie, who is one of the maidens of Odin. She only appears on reel three but replaces any other icon.
There is just one feature in the Valhalla slot game and you do not need to dig too deep into the game to find it. Underneath the reels, there is a ‘Valhalla Spins’ button. This offers the chance to increase your bet size where you can purchase bigger payouts as well as extra features.
If you bet at Level 0, which is your standard stake, the Valkyrie icon acts as a normal wild. If you choose to bet at Level 1, where your initial stake is doubled, the reward is an expanding wild on reel three. A Level 2 bet, four times your stage, provides an expanding wild on reel three plus a free respin. Level 3 requires your standard stake x6 but returns an expanding wild on reel three as well as two respins. A Level 4 bet is eight times your normal stake and comes with an expanding wild on reel three and three respins.
The highest bet is Level 5, 10 times your usual stake, and rewards you with an expanding wild on reel three, four respins and an increasing win multiplier that goes up to a 4x maximum.
The Valhalla slot game has an RTP rating of 94%, which is way below the average for a slot game and more on the side of the house rather than the player.
There is a simplicity to the Valhalla slot game which can actually be one of the defining traits of the game. The action all plays out around the Valhalla Spins feature, where even on modest stakes you have the chance to win some decent amounts. If you like a game that is easy to understand and play but with an enjoyable feature then Valhalla is one for you.
