Valhalla is another game that takes us to Norse Mythology, names after the heaven in these ancient stories. It offers 5-reels to play on and a total of 10 paylines from which to get winning combinations with the various symbols of this slot. These symbols include the standard low value 9 – A of card suits animated with a Nordic twist along with high value axes, helmets, shields, horns and longships that offer the highest payout of all symbols. The Wild symbol in Valhalla is represented by Valkyrie, a maiden of Odin that can be found on the 3rd reel and substitutes for any other symbols.
Valhalla has a RTP (Return to Player) rating of 94%, this is very much in the lower end of the industry standard however with a low-medium variance Valhalla will payout not huge sums of money on a regular basis.
The 1 feature available in the Valhalla slot, the ‘Valhalla spins’ button beneath the reels allows players to increase their bet size and score even bigger payouts. There are also extra features available from this bonus feature.
If the bet is placed at level 0 (the lowest stake) then Valkyrie Wild will act as normal. If you bet at level 1 (double the stake) the rewards include an expanding wild on the 3rd reel. Level 2 (4x the stake) provides and expanding Wild on the 3rd reel and a free spin. Level 3 (6x the stake) offers the same but with 2 respins. Betting at level 4 (8x the stake) will give players an expanding wild on the 3rd reel and 3 respins.
The highest bet level of 5 requires 10x the stake and is the best return you can get in the bonus feature. An expanding wild on reel 3, 4 respins to play with and a win multiplier with a maximum of 4x the stake returned.
The Valhalla slot has its good and its bad, whilst the game is simple and straightforward with good looking graphics and animations the RTP and bonus features up to the highest level will not excite most players of slot games. The low betting range might not be to everyone’s taste but for those than enjoy it this game might be ideal.
