Valley of the Gods from Yggdrasil journeys back in time to the age of Ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses and where the treasure is yours for the taking with the help of respins, extra lives, win multipliers and ways to win expansion.
We start with four upper-value symbols that are made up of Egyptian Gods: Horus, Anubis, Isis and Bastet. The lower-value symbols are, rather refreshingly, not made up of poker symbols but of jewelled golden animals: a heron, Eye of Horus, a snake, a cat, an ankh and a symbol of Heka. These jewels are red, teal, orange, green, pink and blue respectively, the significance of which you will understand in a bit.
The five reels start as 1-3-5-3-1 rows, but these rows can expand into up to 5 reels of 5 rows. The reels are guarded by two towering statues to the left and right of the reels: Anubis and Horus representing multipliers and extra lives respectively. An ancient-Egyptian tune, both lonely and powerful plays in the background to round out the effects.
Valley of the Gods Re-spins Feature
The Re-spins Feature is probably the easiest feature to trigger because all you need to do is win to unlock it. After any win a free re-spin is awarded which can continue provided that you continue to win.
We mentioned that the slot starts off as 1-3-5-3-1 rows which can expand into a 5×5 reel. Well, the difference in the number of rows is the result of 12 scarab blockers which cover the respective spaces. Each winning symbol releases a scarab to destroy one of these blockers until all the blockers have disappeared.
At this point, any additionally released scarabs are collected after turning red or blue, representing win multipliers or extra lives. When the re-spin fails to produce another win, then the blockers are restored to their original position.
As we previously mentioned, when all the blockers are destroyed the released scarabs can go towards either lives or win multipliers. If the scarabs escape from red, orange, purple or pink jewelled symbols, then they are collected and converted to lives at a ratio of 1 life for every five scarabs.
If the scarabs escape from blue, teal or green jewelled symbols, then they are collected and converted into win multipliers at a ratio of 1x multiplier for every five blue scarabs.
