Direct from the fertile imaginations at Microgaming and Crazy Tooth Studios is this online slot machine themed on fantasy battles in the frozen wastes; it’s be called Arctic Valor and it comes with chilly free spins and helpful Valkyries in the bonus feature.
Arctic Valor is a six reel slot with four rows and 4096 ways to win and the action all takes place in the mouth of a snowy cave in which glittering icicles hang down from the roof, ready to transform into wild symbols to help you out.
Four valkyries represent the higher value symbols along with swords, bows and arrows, winged helmets and shields; snowflakes in red, blue and purple make up the lower values. Payouts for single wins are low but the stacked symbols and multiple paylines make up for this – in addition wins can be formed anywhere as long as there are at least three matching symbols on adjacent reels.
The wild is a big ‘Wild’ which will substitute for all others to help form winning combinations except for the more complex, multicolour snowflake scatter symbol.
This is where those icicles hanging above the reels come in handy and on any spin they may fall onto the reels, covering up to three positions before turning into wild symbols or prize values.
Arctic Valor Free Spins
This is triggered by landing at least three of the snowflake scatter symbols anywhere in view for which you will receive seven free spins.
The Icicle Feature is active on each spin during this round and if a stacked valkyrie lands on the same reel it can increase the size of the icicle above the normal three positions for more wild symbols or prizes.
Arctic Valor may contain some dodgy spelling but as a slot machine it’s action packed and plenty of fun; intricate, highly detailed graphics complement the bonus features very effectively and there are some big wins available in the free spins round.
