Another Egyptian-themed slot game has been released and one could say that it does have a few things that make it stand out from the crowd. The 5 reel slot with 5 rows is called Valley of the Gods and is released by Yggdrasil Gaming with an amazing 45 to 3,125 winning ways. The possibilities really are endless here and the payouts are satisfying as well. If you are a fan of the never-ending story of Egypt this game should be added to your list.
Egypt might have one of the most interesting cultures and histories in the world. The way their people lived, what they could achieve at that time and the traditions are something that can never really get boring. There is always something greater that is going to amaze all over again. That is why the theme is so popular amongst slot games. It has something for every player's liking.
The design of the game is on the simpler side but does look very good. The background looks like pyramid walls. There are also two statues on each side of the reels since it is known how much the Egyptians valued them. The soundtrack consists of majestic and also mysterious music. It contributes to the adventurous feeling of the game. There are also more cheerful sound effects present as the reels are spun.
The symbols are what contribute to the theme the most since they are all classic symbols of the Egyptian culture. Some of them include different hieroglyphs instead of the regular royals players are used to. Then there are Tutankhamen, Horus, Bastet, and Anubis. The symbols are nothing we have not seen before, but in the end, it comes down to the way they are designed and these are definitely one of the better-looking ones out there.
The gameplay is quite interesting as well. The game starts with 3 symbols in each corner replaced by scarabs that are not active. With the help of some of a feature that area can easily become an active part of the play area resulting in a high number of ways to form a winning combination. The player can bet a minimum of 0,25 and a maximum of 125 coins per spin. Players have the possibility to win up to 1,500x the stake in a singles spin. This is a medium volatility game with a 96,2% RTP that is quite a good offer.
The features of the game give it an adventurous vibe since there is always something interesting going on. They are all linked which makes it a bit harder for the player, but also a lot more fun. First is the Re-spins feature that is triggered after a winning combination has occurred. It is the reason the player has the chance to get 3,125 winning ways active.
When all the scarab blocks get removed from the grid, they turn into red and blue scarabs collected by the two statues on each side of the reels. That brings us to the Lives feature that is represented by the right statue collecting the red scarab symbols. When activated the player gets 1 additional life which increases by 1 every 5 collected scarabs. When no winning combination has happened and the player is out of lives the feature ends and the player returns to the base game.
There is also the left statue that collects blue scarab symbols that activate the Win Multipliers feature. The feature awards the player with a x2 multiplier that increases by 1 for every 5 blue scarab symbols collected. The feature ends in the same way when the player runs out of lives without a win occurring.
The game has definitely impressed and will be liked by many players surely. The design may be simple but overall it works well. Not to mention, the features are to die for making this a trip worth taking.
