Free Valkyrie slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Valkyrie slot from Elk Studios is a great looking addition to the Hall of Gods, or should I say the hall of Norse Mythology themed games. You have some pretty good graphics and animations here, far more detailed than older ones such as Microgaming's Thunderstruck 2 - this slot rivals Play'n Go's classic Viking Runecraft in appearance. Valkyrie, as you may have guessed, is far more feminine for a change and focuses on the female goddesses and warriors and they certainly look very imposing! I hope they don't do battle with our bankroll, as if so it can only end badly.
On The Reels...
We have 1024-ways to win over 5 reels of 4 rows apiece and icons appear stacked, and this means there are no paying lines as such, you need consecutive symbols on 3 reels or more from the left. You can play for as little as 20-coins and for that stake we'll see what the 5-of-a-kind pays are like. The Crowned Goddess is 80 coins, Redhead 70, Blue Warrior 60 and Ginger Warrior 50, Glove 40, Wolf 35, Serpent 30, Hammer 25 with 4 card values at either 10 or 5 coins for a full way. That's a lot of symbols and some may appear randomly during spins in blocks of either 2x2, 2x3 or 3x3. Wilds can appear on the centre 3 reels stacked and scatter on all singly and you will have noticed Valkyrie by the left of the reels, poised for action.....
On some spins the reels will darken and 3 bright white bonus symbols will rain down. This means a respin with one of three Valkyrie bonuses guaranteed.
Arrow of Fortune - she fires 1 or more arrows onto the grid and each one will produce a block symbol as described above, of the same icon. The reels then stop with hopefully more of the same lining up for a decent win.
Shield of Chance - Shields rain down on the reels and any remaining turn into Wild tiles.
Sword of Destiny - fiery Swords appear over the 3 spinning reels in the centre and any landing will result in that reel turning Wild.
Valkyrie Free Games
You can only get 3 scatters on reels 2,3 and 4 and may then ask why I said above there are scatters on all 5 reels! This is because when you get 3 Freya may appear to add another to either reel 1 or 5 or both. This can be important as with just 3 as the trigger you simply get 5 spins with one guaranteed to have a Valkyrie feature. Then 4 will award 7 spins with 2 guaranteed features and all 5 is 10 spins with 3 features guaranteed. You can retrigger this very spectacular free games round too.
There are few developers who make graphics and animations like Elk Studios and Valkyrie slot is a prime example. Sure enough with 1024-ways you'll see quite a few micro-wins during your play but the random Valkyrie features will negate the effect of those. You also have some big-win potential as Elk Studios claim you can win up to 500k and as the maximum bet is 100 then that means 5000x bet is possible. Free spins are good and usually productive and we get a decent 96.30% RTP as is usual with most Elk games.
