Join us as we experience all that Valhalla has to offer in this Norse mythology themed video slot game. We’ll let you know about every single feature that this game has on offer so you can be best prepared.
Theme & Symbols
If you’ve seen or experienced Valhalla in any modern pop culture piece of media or even through stories from books or television then you’ll already have a pretty solid idea as to what this video slot game looks and sounds like.
Drumming and chanting is probably going to be the first thing that you notice when you load up this title. The deep voices of the viking warriors that have taken up Valhalla will echo in your ears as the drum beats pump you up to start spinning the reels.
The background of the game is kind of dark and moody. Auroras light up some of the night sky while red leaves blow around in the breeze. The sun has set on Valhalla and that means that the feasting and the revelry can begin!
The grid has been constructed out of dark, sturdy wood and reinforced by cold hard steel. Runes have been engraved in the steel to give it that extra Nordic flare. You’ll notice that you can see extra symbols floating above the reels, that isn’t a visual bug or anything like that. The reels can extend and in doing so adds extra paylines.
Overall, Relax Gaming has done a great job creating this video slot game. You’ll feel the cold Norse air on your skin immediately heat up when you start landing wins.
To begin there are four basic, low-paying symbols. These symbols are represented by playing card suits so expect to see Clubs, Diamonds, Spades and Hearts appear on your reels quite often.
Next up are the high-paying symbols. These are represented by gorgeous looking Viking carvings. A Snake, Eagles, A Horse, A Ram, A Wolf and a Viking Warrior are all the icons you’ll want to land on your reels as you play the game.
The Horns of Odin represent this game’s Wild symbol. The Wild can substitute for any other common icon in the game, helping you build incredible combos.
Golden towers of either The Valkyrie, Loki, Thor or Odin can appear on specific reels as the game progresses. These towers will all reveal the same random symbol when all the reels stop spinning.
Online Betting Options & Features
Towering Pays Valhalla starts off as a 5 reel, 3 row video slot game but can eventually grow to become a 5×8 grid. You’ll only have access to 15 paylines right in the beginning of the game but should you manage to max out the grid you’ll be playing with 65 paylines. The RTP for this title sits at around 95.75%.
Mega Tower Magic is the feature that drops Golden Towers on specific reels. During standard play, Valkyrie and Loki features the towers will only land on reels 1, 2 and 3. During the Thor or Odin feature they land on reels 1, 2, 3 or 4 and during the Odin feature on a full 5×8 grid they land on reels 1 – 5.
Should a tower appear in the active area you’ll advance a stage. By advancing a stage you’ll gain access to 1 additional row and 10 additional paylines. A prize multiplier has the potential to appear on any winning spin.
To activate a feature, a tower needs to land on reels 1, 2 and 3 with a maxed out 5×8 grid. Features can either be accepted and played or rejected in an attempt to land a better feature. When the Odin feature appears it has to be played. All features will start with 7 bonus spins and a specific added bonus depending on which tower landed:
- Valkyrie Bonus Spins: A prize multiplier might occur on a winning spin.
- Loki Bonus Spins: A prize multiplier is guaranteed to occur on a winning spin.
- Thor Bonus Spins: A prize multiplier might occur on a winning spin and towers can appear on reel 4.
- Odin Bonus Spins: A Prize multiplier might occur on a winning spin, towers can appear on reel 4 and during a maxed out 5×8 grid towers can appear on every reel.
Features can be retriggered by landing a tower in the active area.
If you don’t feel like waiting for the features to activate naturally you can always use the buy feature. Spin the wheel and see which feature you’ll activate!
