Freya, the Norse goddess of beauty and love as well as queen of the valkyries. Vikings and ancient Norse mythology is a theme and time period often covered by video slot game developers and for good reason, like ancient Egypt, it’s full of mystery and story rich tales of adventure.
This video slot from developer Play’n GO focuses on one particular goddess rather than the whole pantheon. Freya definitely has enough stories around her that she’ll be able to hold a video slot title down by herself but how will that translate into gameplay?
Join us as we find out what makes this game unique and fun.
Theme & Symbols
As we mentioned above, this title focuses solely around Freya. There aren’t any cameo appearances from Odin, Thor, Loki or any other of the Scandenavian bigwigs.
The game grid is situated in a quiet, green valley. There are hills to the left and to the right and where they meet there is a waterfall supplying water to the lake directly underneath it. The lake’s shore is a green pasture with a tree off to the left. There are old stone carvings that poke their heads out of the ground to greet the shining sun. It gives off a feeling of tranquility and calmness.
The art work is pretty good, you’ll be able to identify each and every symbol as it appears. The designs of the high-paying icons are really well done, you can pick any of the symbols, look closely and find some hidden details.
This is another visually stunning piece from Play’n GO. This level of quality has become their standard. While we’ve come to expect this from them it’s still great to see anyway.
Starting off with the low-paying icons we have playing card suits given an old norse runic style overhaul. You’ll be seeing Diamonds, Spades, Hearts and Clubs appear quite often as you make your spins in Freya’s garden.
Next up are the high-paying symbols. These are all represented by things you’d expect to see when thinking about the Vikings. An Axe and Shield, a Boar, Large Cats and an Arm Ring are the icons you’ll want to keep an eye out for.
The Wild symbol in this game is represented by Freya herself. She can substitute for any other common icon in the game and help you to build winning combos.
There is a Scatter in this title represented by a multicoloured ornament. Should enough of these land during a single spin you’ll be awarded with bonus spins. A special feature will also trigger, we’ll cover that in just a bit.
