The wombat says: Valhalla the sacred resting place for bloodthirsty Vikings who have died in battle. Norse mythology bangs on about the Golden Kingdom that’s full of riches all the time, making it an appropriate theme for NextGen’s latest slot release. Well they’ve done Romans with the Call of the Colosseum slot– it was time to head north!
There are 2 things this wombat noticed after playing Valhalla slot for a few minutes. Firstly that the Flight of The Valkyries soundtrack blasts at you to get in the mood for a spot of pillaging on the reels, and then there’s the fact that there are no bonus rounds or features.
Instead this game is all about the Valhalla Spins, but more on those later…
Valhalla Slot Game Play
Valhalla is from NextGen Gaming (they’ve come a long way from the Emperor’s Garden slot) with 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 paylines. Your symbols on the reels include high playing cards as your low value symbols; 10, J,Q, K & A as well as Viking helmets, ornate horns, shields and battleaxes, and Norse longships. The latter are the most lucrative symbols on your screen, and will pay out a rather tidy sum of 2500 coins for 5x of them. Nice.
The Wild symbol
We have plenty of jackpot heroines here at Wombat Casino including a Mayan Princess, some Irish ladies and the lass off the Robyn slot, and a hot Norse chick is the Wild symbol in the Valhalla slot (although she does look a bit moody)- she will substitute for all other symbols on the reels to make up your winning combos. She shows up on reel 3 only, and comes in very handy during the Valhalla Spins game. Here she’ll expand and also give you extra re-spins.
The Spins Feature
If you’re feeling flash Wombat Fans, then it’s time to play Valhalla Spins. Basically, by increasing your stake per spin you’ll get much bigger rewards.
You’ll find the Valhalla Spins button underneath the reels; choose from the 5 levels on offer – all of which will include expanding Wilds that will lock in position on that middle reel and dole out other goodies. They include:
2x your bet = Expanding Wild on reel 3
4x your bet = Expanding Wild on reel 3 plus 1 respin
6x your bet = Expanding Wild on reel 3 plus 2 respin
8x your bet = Expanding Wild on reel 3 plus 3 respins
10x your bet = Expanding wild on reel 3 plus 4 respins and a win multiplier
Oh, and one more thing: on Level 5, the win multiplier is active during respins. By Thor’s Hammer!
Play Valhalla Slot on mobile
If you want some slot action on the hop, NextGen have ensured that this game works perfectly on mobile and tablet. In fact you can even change where you’ll find the spin and bet level buttons depending on whether you prefer to play on portrait or landscape.
Interesting, verrry interesting… A base game with no bonuses or extras? In principle that would suck harder than this wombat’s grandad at his dentures, BUT the game-play in the Valhalla Spins option makes up for it, so they get away with it.
The only problem is you have to pay for it… High rollers will love the Valhalla slot, as it can lead to some seriously ‘MEGA WINS’, but for the rest of us, we could have done with a bit more base game action.
