Pragmatic Play slot: Gates of Valhalla

Google the words Gates of Valhalla, and some pretty impressive imagery comes up. Imagine standing there, having lived the life of a warrior about to step through to hang with Odin and the lads in an Asgardian hall, before gearing up for Ragnarök. Not a bad sounding afterlife, and one that has a continuing hold over the imaginations of slot providers. One studio that has been down this route before, rather well too it should be added, is developer Pragmatic Play. This time, they’ve set up an unusually run slot next to the almighty gates and peppered it with roaming wild multipliers as one of its main features. They’ve also increased their usual potential to provide extra incentive to give Gates of Valhalla a whirl.

Enter the mythical realm of Valhalla and reveal the hidden treasure in Gates of Valhalla™. Roaming Wilds move to random positions on the reels after every tumble, awarding multipliers of up to 5x for the winning combinations the Wild is part of. Trigger the Free Games with 3x Free Spins symbols and play up to 10 Free Spins with an increasing multiplier that applies to the total win of all tumbles.

RTP & Volatility: 96.46%

Tumble Feature

Also occurring in all phases of the game is the Tumble feature, which removes winning symbols from the reels to allow for new ones to replace them by falling into the gaps. Tumbling only ceases when no new wins appear.

Roaming Wild

The wild symbol does not explode during the tumbling feature. Instead, when a wild is used in a win, it moves to another position on the board after the other symbols have exploded. After moving, the wild increases its win multiplier by +1 for each subsequent winning combination during the same tumble. It does this up to a maximum of x5. After the multiplier reaches x5 and is used in another win, it explodes from the board. If more than one wild is involved in a win, the multiplier values are added together before being used.

Free Spins

Hitting 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols triggers 10, 12, or 15 free spins, respectively. For the full duration of free spins, a general win multiplier comes into play. This multiplier is applied to the total win value of a tumble sequence. It starts at x1 and increases by +1 following every tumble, not resetting between spins. Free spins can be retriggered in the same way they are initially triggered with no limit.

Buy Free Spins

Free spins frequency is pretty high, though the base game wait is broken up by the roaming wild. However, if you can’t bear the thought of sitting around, players can buy free spins for the cost of 100 times their stake.
