Spin that reel – Valley of the Gods slot review
Valley of the Gods is an Yggdrasil slot with up to 3,125 ways to win. The slot can be played on all devices from only 25 cents per spin and all the way up to €125 per spin. The game has an ancient Egypt theme that we also know from popular games like Book of Dead. The key in this game is to get consecutive wins which increase the number of ways to win. If you manage to clear the whole area from scarabs, you will benefit from a 2x multiplier and extra lives. The scarabs are either blue or red where blue scarabs will increase the multiplier whilst red ones give you extra lives to use in free re-spins.
Valley of the Gods has 5 reels, 5 rows and 45 to 3,125 ways to win. This ancient Egyptian themed slot game features the great Gods Horus and Anubis that will offer you re-spins and multipliers.
Valley of the Gods looks a bit mysteriously as you can expect from an acient Egyptian setting. Symbols on the reels include a number of hieroglyphs, Tutankhamon, Bastet, Anubis and Horus. Both Anubis and Horus are the symbols you want to land because they will pay you 20 times your stake for 5 symbols across a pay line. The music and sound effects are well made and match the game well.
The game benefits from a Re-spins feature which is triggered when you get a winning combination. As a result, the number of ways to win increases as positions with scarabs on them are destroyed. Consecutive wins will eventually lead to 3,125 ways to win with no scarabs left! If you manage to clear the whole area, you will invoke ancient incantations and activate both Scarab Collections.
All the winning golden scarabs transform into red or blue scarabs -depending on the color on the winning combinations – and are collected on the right and left side of the game. You will also get a 2x multiplier and 1 extra life. This is used in the Extra Lives feature as you are granted 1 extra life for every 5 red scarabs collected. If you don’t get a winning spin, you will lose a life. The re-spins continue as long as you have lives remaining.
There’s also a Win Multiplier feature which starts at 2x. For each 5 blue scarabs collected the multiplier will increase by 1 to a maximum of 6.
Although the design is nice and the intro looks promising, the game is not on our short list of most spectacular games. It is definitely worth a try and you can get lucky if you manage to keep the respins going once you are in the bonus mode. This will go hand in hand with an increasing multiplier if you are lucky, which can result in some pretty nice wins.
Overall this medium variance game which is well made and if you are into the Egyptian theme, you can have a nice time playing this slot.
