Call of the Valkyries is powered by Playtech and has 5 reels and 25 paylines. Playable from 25p to £500 a spin on all devices, head to the battlefield in this Norse mythology themed game where you can benefit from 3 bonus features. In the base game, Valkyries can randomly transform all warrior symbols into wilds to give you a win. There are also free respins with stacked wild Valkyrie symbols that shift on each respin – warrior symbols also transform into frozen wilds where can combine to give you a 2x multiplier. Lastly, you pick items in the Call of the Valkyries feature to win cash prizes.
Visually, Call of the Valkyries looks amazing – set against a snow-capped mountain range, you have Norse style A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as warrior symbols such as the shield, axes and helmets. You also have horns and Thor’s hammer. The horn is the most rewarding symbol giving you 20 times your stake for 5 across a payline. There’s also a wild which replaces all symbols bar the scatter symbols to give you the best possible winning combination.
In the base game, a losing spin can result in the Touch of the Valkyries feature being randomly triggered – the Valkyries can transform all warrior symbols (the shield, axe and/or helmet) into wilds to give you a guaranteed winning combination.
Then you have the March of the Valkyries feature which is played when you fill reels 1, 5 or both 1 and 5 with stacked wild Valkyrie symbols. The reels then respin with any wild Valkyrie present marching to the opposite end of the reels as it shifts 1 reel with each respin.
Furthermore, a wild Valkyrie transforms warrior symbols in front of her into frozen wilds – a frozen wild created by 2 wild Valkyries simultaneously will apply a 2x multiplier to your winnings! Also, when 2 wild Valkyries meet on reel 3, they double all wins they’re involved in. The feature only ends when ever wild Valkyrie has reached the opposite end of the reels.
Lastly, you have the Call of the Valkyries feature which is played when you get the Bonus symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 simultaneously – you then need to pick items dropped by fallen warriors to reward you with cash prizes. If you reveal a hidden demon, a life is lost – if you lose all your lives, the feature ends. However, if you reach the gate of Valhalla, each remaining life you have will apply a 2x multiplier to your total win!
Overall, Call of the Valkyries is a fine-looking slot with some good bonus features – it’s a pity there are not free spins but the bigger wins will come in the March of the Valkyries feature where stacked Valkyrie wilds shift with each respin.
With warrior symbols transforming into frozen wilds, the 2x multipliers can also be very lucrative in their own right – this medium variance game can pay out up to 1,000 times your stake on each spin. If you like Norse mythology themed slots, there’s plenty to choose from with NetEnt’s Asgardian Stones and iSoftBet’s Legend of Loki recommended.
