The first thing you’ll notice about Wild Valkyrie is the thumping soundtrack – its epic in nature and will make you want to line up for battle. Set against a snowy woodland, symbols include Norse style A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 card suits. You’ll also see horns, goblets, black crows, wolves, white horses and shields.

The latter 2 are the most rewarding symbol giving you 10 times your stake for 5 across a payline. The Valkyrie is the wild symbol and appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 (all bar reel 1) – as well as substituting for all symbols, it’s grouped wild meaning it can appear in bigger sizes. Being an all ways slot, winning combinations are formed by getting matching symbols on adjacent reels (i.e. reels 1, 2 and 3) starting from the leftmost reel (reel 1).

Wild Valkyrie comes with a Morphing Symbols feature – when you get a winning combination, the winning symbols are morphed after a payout has been awarded. Basically, new symbols appear in morphed positions to give you new wins. The morphing continues after each win until no more winning combinations are formed. From the second morph onwards, a 2x multiplier is applied.

Then there’s the Valkyrie feature – you will notice a Wild tally to the left of the reel set. When you accumulate 6 or more Valkyrie wilds, you will enter the feature. The number of free spins you get depends on how many wilds you collect – 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 or 16 or more wilds would result in 8, 10, 12, 15, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, 80 or 100 free spins respectively.

Furthermore, all new morphing symbols will pay double meaning a 2x multiplier is applied. During the feature, 6 or more wilds accumulated on a free spin will result in 5 additional free spins (with no limits). The Wild Tally obviously resets to 0 after free spin.

Wild Valkyrie is quite a simple slot in reality – basically, winning symbols are morphed to give you bigger wins and a doubling multiplier from the second morph. The big wins will come from the Valkyrie feature as all morphs are doubled and there’s scope to win unlimited free spins.

Saying that, Wild Valkyrie is a medium variance slot that can pay out a maximum of 500 times your stake on each spin or free spin – this can be achieved if you fill the reels with the high value white horse or shield and with a 2x multiplier applying. If you like the theme, NetEnt’s Vikings is recommended is it’s the official slot of the popular television series and can give you wins of 10,000 times your stake on every free spin.
