With a Norse mythology theme, the Gates of Valhalla slot is set in the hall found in Asgard which is ruled by Odin. With fallen warriors going to Valhalla, you will see snow-capped mountains in the backdrop. The soundtrack is stirring which adds to the grandness of the visuals.

The reels appear in a 5×5 block. With 7 main symbols, you’ll see diamonds, clubs, hearts and spades as well as gods Thor, Freya and Odin. Odin is the highest paying symbol giving you 1, 5 or 75 x your total stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

Created, as with all Pragmatic Play games, with HTML5 technology, the Gates of Valhalla slot is playable on all devices. This includes mobiles, tablets, laptops and PCs.

Gates of Valhalla Bonus Features

The Gates of Valhalla slot has 4 main bonus features. There are tumbles, roaming wilds with increasing multipliers and free spins. In the latter, tumbles increase the win multiplier with no limits.

Tumble feature

Landing a winning combination of any kind will trigger the Tumble feature. With wins paid, all winning symbols disappear to be replaced by new ones. This allows for successive wins to be formed. The tumbles continue as long as you keep winning. This feature can be found in many online slots such as Gonzo’s Quest (NetEnt) and most Megaways slots.

Roaming Wild feature

During tumbles, the wild symbol will not explode. When a wild is part of a win, it moves to a random position (in any direction). Known as the Roaming Wild feature, this increases your chances of landing a winning combination which then gives you further tumbles.

On top of that, a multiplier increases by 1 for every subsequent winning combination when a wild is involved. The multiplier can rise up to 5x. If you get a win with a 5x multiplier, that wild explodes and is removed from the grid. If you get a win with multiple wilds, the multipliers of all wilds are added together.

Free Spins feature

The Free Spins feature is activated when you land 3 or more free spins scatters anywhere on the reels. 3, 4 or 5 scatters will give you 10, 12 or 15 free spins respectively.

For the whole feature, a multiplier applies to the total win of all tumbles. Beginning at 1x, the multiplier increases by 1 with every tumble. You can also land 3+ scatters to win 10 more free spins, with no limits.

Outside the UK, there’s a Buy Free Spins feature. Costing 100 x your total stake, you will get access to the Free Spins feature. The RTP rate also increases slightly up to 96.6%.

Originality








The Gates of Valhalla slot offers a lot of promise due to the popular Norse mythology theme. Visually, it’s not as good as Power of Thor Megaways for example.

With tumbles and free spins, this only thing that makes this game stand out is the Roaming Wild with increasing multiplier. Gates of Valhalla doesn’t offer anything new in terms of gameplay but it does offer good win potential of up to 10,000 x stake. The 96.46% RTP is also good.

All in all, Gates of Valhalla is a decent game. In a crowded genre, it doesn’t really stand out unfortunately. It’s by no means a poor slot though but there are more appealing options out there. If you want more Norse action, there are better slots available.

I personally like Yggdrasil Gaming’s Vikings Go Berzerk Reloaded. With superb graphics, it has lots of bonus features and 25,000 x stake max wins. Another option is NetEnt’s Vikings which is the official slot for the TV series. It comes with 10,000 x stake top payouts.

Pros
  • 10,000 x stake max wins
  • Unlimited free spins & win multipliers
  • Playable on all devices including mobile
Cons
  • Not the best design
  • Bonus features seen many times before
