The Arctic Valor is the first game created by Crazy Tooth Studio for the software giant Microgaming. A quick search shows that the Crazy Tooth is a studio based in Nevada and founded in 2011. In February 2019 it inked an agreement with Microgaming to develop games on Microgaming’s behalf. Let’s see how well the Crazy Tooth did with the Arctic Valor. Is the slot a hit or miss? Or it is somewhere in the middle?

Arctic Valor - Slot Review
The Arctic Valor is a 6 reel, 4096 ways to win slot accepting bets between 0.15 and £15. Crazy Tooth has adopted the adjacent pays mechanics meaning that you score a win every time you land at least three identical symbols on adjacent reels.
Design-wise, the game intro is nearly brilliant. However, the Crazy Tooth has not rocked the boat with the design of the base game. In our humble opinion, it looks a bit outdated. Other than that, the Arctic Valor is inspired by the Norse Mythology and the Valkyries, in particular. The low-value symbols you will come across include pink, blue and snow crystals. The medium paying symbols are represented by a sword, helmet, shields, and crossbows.
The Valkyries are the premium symbols. They all pay the same. The wild symbol substitutes for all the other symbols except for the scatter, to help you form a winning combo.

Arctic Valor Bonus Round
If you land at least 3 scatter symbols on the reels the Arctic Valor Bonus feature is triggered and you are awarded 7 free spins. The scatter will not appear during the free spins feature, but the Icicle feature will be activated. After every free spin, the Icicle feature will either reveal cash prizes or turn random symbols into wilds. If you land Valkyrie symbols, the Icicle feature will turn them into wilds.
All the time we have been testing the Arctic Valor for you, we felt that it is somehow missing in terms of design. There are not many features to keep players entertained and guarantee big wins. Still, the max bet size is low enough to give it a shot. If you are more concerned about the volatility rather than the design, you might like it.
