Video slots based on Norse mythology have always been popular. Earlier, they mainly featured gods like Thor, Odin and Loki. But of late there have been a number of video slots based on Valkyries. Valkyries are a host of female figures who choose those who may die in battle and those who may live. They are represented as fearsome warriors in battle attire. This makes them perfect for the artwork in video slots. One such video slot is titled Valkyrie. It is from Elk and can be played at online casinos like Golden Palace.
Valkyrie is a 5×4 slot machine with 1024 ways to win. The reels are set in a frosty Scandinavian atmosphere with a Valkyrie standing guard alongside. The high paying symbols are four Valkyries. The next set of symbols depicts the battle regalia of the Valkyries. The low paying symbols are ornately designed playing card icons. Odin is the wild symbol. The symbols may appear as big blocks of 2×2, 2×3 or 3×3. Odin is the king of the Norse gods and controls the Valkyries.
Three or more Free Spins symbols trigger the Valhalla Free Spins. At least one of the free spins will be guaranteed to include a randomly chosen Valkyrie feature. Three symbols award 5 free spins with at least one Valkyrie feature. Four symbols award 7 free spins with at least two Valkyrie features. Five symbols award 10 free spins with at least three Valkyrie features. The free spins can be retriggered. Three or more Bonus Spin symbols award one respin with a randomly selected Valkyrie feature. The potency of the Valkyrie feature depends on the number of bonus symbols in the triggering spin.
There are three Valkyrie features available. In the Arrow of Fortune feature a number of arrows are fired on the reels. Each arrow will create a big symbol that could be 2×2, 2×3 or 3×3 in size. All the arrows will create the same symbol, but the sizes can differ. In the Shield of Chance feature a number of shields fall over the reels. They create randomly placed wild shield symbols. In the Sword of Destiny feature swords will fall over reels 2, 3 or 4. The swords may fall over one or more reels. All these reels will be turned wild. The total bet can be varied from $0.20 to $100. The payout table states the absolute payout based on the chosen bet level.
