Needless to say, the Spirits of the Valkyrie is inspired by the Norse mythology, and Odin’s fearless maids, in particular. It is a standard 5-reel, 25-payline title, playable across desktop and mobile devices, and accepting bets as low as 0.20 and as high as £100 per spin. What makes the slot stand out from the rest is the presence of four features, randomly triggered during the base game.
Symbol-wise, the Spirits of the Valkyrie is no different from its similar-themed counterparts. You will land the standard low-paying A to 10 Royals and better-paying shields, swords, axes, and Thor’s hammer. Right off the reel set, you will see a Valkyrie who can randomly trigger one of the 4 bonus features.
The wild symbol is represented by a book. It pays 25x your stake for five of a kind and it also substitutes all the other symbols, except for the scatter, to help you form winning combos. The emerald is the scatter that triggers the free spins.
Base Game Bonus Features
- Colossal Magic Feature – large symbols fully cover up to 3 reels
- Blade of Fury feature – adds 1 or more wilds
- Ice Blade feature – the Valkyrie slides a symbol from reel 5 across all other reels thus helping you secure a better win
- Shockwave Slash feature – the Valkyrie boosts your win by adding matching symbols to an existing winning combination.
If you land wilds on reels 1 and 3, you get the following:
- Win Stack feature – left off the reel set, you will see a meter that determines the amount of your win. When you trigger the Win Stack feature, the total amount you win will be the value of the 10 most recent wins you scored
- Free Spins – you get 10 free spins that pay both ways. The total amount of winnings is added to the win stack
- Free Spins and Win Stack – you get 10 free spins + the value of the win stack meter when you use up the free spins
