Free Spins feature

Wild Symbol

This symbol can land on all reels, and it helps to create more winning combinations by substituting for other symbols, except for the scatter symbols.

Tumble

When you spin the reels and create a winning combination, the Tumble feature is activated. Then all symbols that were part of the winning combination will disappear from the reels and new symbols will fall down to cover the empty positions. This continues as long as new wins are created.

Roaming Wild

When the Tumble feature is activated and winning symbols are removed, wild symbols will not disappear even though they may have been part of a win. It will remain and be moved to an adjacent location if possible. Each time the wild symbol is included in a win, its multiplier will increase by 1X, where it can get up to 5X. When a wild multiplier has reached 5X and is included in a win, it will disappear from the reels after the win has been given. You can create a win where several wild multipliers are included, in which their multipliers will be compiled and then applied to the win.

Free Spins

If you land 3 or more scatter symbols, the Free Spins feature is activated. Depending on whether you landed 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols, results in you receiving 10, 12 or 15 free spins respectively. If you land 3 or more scatter symbols during the bonus, you will receive 10 extra free spins, with no limit.

You start with a win multiplier of 1X and with each tumble that occurs, this multiplier will increase by 1X. Its multiplier stays during the bonus game and is applied to any wins created.

Bonus Buy

If you want to take advantage of the Free Spins feature right away, you can use the Bonus Buy feature. You pay 100X and then the bonus game is activated.

Gates of Valhalla Slot Conclusion

The gods certainly know what it takes for visitors to have a good time, where within this slot you are greeted by an entertaining set of features. You are playing on a slot that has a 5X5 reel setup, where winning combinations can be created anywhere on the reels as long as they are on a line. This different way of creating wins never rules out a win until all symbols have landed, which makes up for a nice addition to the game. The game's wild symbol helps to create more winning combinations and if included in a win, it will stay during the spins and receive a multiplier of up to 5X with the help of tumbles. These roaming wilds can provide lovely boosts to the wins and are reminiscent of the concept previously seen within Beat the Beasts: Griffin's Gold, among others.

With the help of the game's tumble feature, a spin can become very long-lasting, as it continues to release new symbols as long as new wins are generated. By landing 3 or more scatter symbols, the bonus game is activated, and you receive a number of free spins that vary in number depending on the amount of scatter symbols you had at activation. During these spins, you get to enjoy a win multiplier that increases by 1X each time a tumble occurs, which means that by the end of the spins, you may have managed to scrape together a celebratory total win multiplier that delivers big wins along with the roaming wild multipliers. The game has a good sized RTP, assuming the higher one is used, because if any of the lower ones are used, the player's chances drop off considerably. Something that is greatly appreciated within this slot, is that Pragmatic Play have stepped up towards slightly higher potential max wins, where you now can see a doubling from their usual 5000X. As for the game's features, there's nothing new that we get to experience here, but instead they use a solid setup of lovable features. The setup of these features are intertwined in a very elegant way, much like the Megaways mechanic along with its cascade feature. However, the theme feels a bit well used and something new would have been appreciated for the sake of refreshment.

Gates of Valhalla is a slot where, along with an elegant composition of well-established features, we spin the reels and can manage to scoop up some mighty wins along the way.
