Do battle with a band of villainous sky pirates in Agent Valkyrie, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from 2 by 2 Gaming. Collecting coins in the base game triggers respins with added wild extras. There’s also a bonus round that awards up to 15 free spins (initially) with more wild goodies. Play from 25p to £25 per spin on all devices. Trying to catch a gang of pirate aviators is the aim in Agent Valkyrie. There are plenty of chances to do so and land some decent payouts too.

The design in this sky-faring adventure is nicely done. Set against a cloud-filled backdrop, you’ll see A to 10 playing cards, an aviator’s scarf, a map and the trio of grizzly looking pirate criminals. There’s also a wild that awards 40 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline.

Look out for the coin symbols that can land on reels 2, 3 and 4 in the base game. When they hit, they’re collected in a meter above each reel in the Base Game feature. Collect 3 coins in a meter and you’ll trigger a respin with 1 of the following extras:

  • Reel 2: Wilds Reels – 1 or 2 reels will be totally wild on this respin.
  • Reel 3: Flying Wilds – a plane flies across the reels, depositing wilds at random as it goes.
  • Reel 4: Capture Criminals – land any of the 3 criminal symbols are dubbed as ‘captured’ and turn into wilds for the respin that follows.

Agent Valkyrie also comes with a Free Spin Mission feature which is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 of the scatter. As well as a payout of 1, 3 or 10 times your stake, you’ll also receive 7, 11 or 15 free spins. These free spins come with wild reels, flying wilds or capture criminals wilds in play.

If you wish, you can distribute the free spin extras yourself. For example, if you triggered 7 free spins you could have 1 free spin with the wild reels, 4 with the flying wilds and 1 with the capture criminals wilds or any other combination you fancy. Every time a scatter lands during the feature, 1 extra free spin is added to your total.

The pirate theme is a popular one and it’s good to see 2 by 2 Gaming take to the air rather than the usual ocean waves. The design is solid without being spectacular but it does the job perfectly well. The range of extras impresses too with the respin extras certainly livening up the base game.

The free spins round delivers some decent winning opportunities too and I love the fact you can choose which feature to use on the free spins – I would opt for the wild reels personally. If you enjoy the pirate theme but want something that delivers a twist or 2 then you’ll probably enjoy taking to the skies with Agent Valkyrie. I also recommend you try Playson’s Space Corsairs which has a similar theme.
