Call of the Valkyries is one of the latest slot machines that Playtech has released, and as it’s obvious from its title, it’s a game that is inspired by the popular female warriors/deities that are mentioned in the legends of the Vikings.
There are several features in the game that are inspired by these female warriors, including the Touch of the Valkyries, March of the Valkyries or Call of the Valkyries, plus the usual wild symbols or scatters. Other than that, you get a 5 reels slot and 25 lines. Individual combinations will pay as much as $20,000, and a screen filled with the right symbols could deliver $500,000.
Betting and Prizes
In order to spin the reels, you need to place a bet, and it can be extremely low, or quite high in value, it’s all up to you. The game has as its only requirement that you use all 25 lines that it puts at your disposal, so there are 25 coins in the bet. It’s you that decides the value of the coins though, and with denominations of $0.01 to $20, the bets vary between $0.25 and $500.
Though usually wins on individual lines will go as high as 500x, or $10,000, for certain features the game will improve them with multipliers, and you can end up with $20,000 payouts per combo, and up to $500,000 in a single round.
Even RTP wise, Call of the Valkyries is above the average, being set to a respectable 96.53%. It might not predict the outcome of your game session, but at least it tells you its long-term potential, and it’s a good idea to max out your chances whenever you can.
Call of the Valkyries Slot Features
The Wild Logo is one of the symbols that you will see appear in the game. It’s available only as the substitute, a standard one that’s only usable when combined with regular symbols, but not with scatters.
Moving on to scatters, that’s where we see the image of a Valkyrie. The Bonus symbol will be visible on the 1st, 3rd and 5th columns. Together, they will trigger a bonus game called Call of the Valkyries. It’s a pick feature, where you have to choose items that were dropped by fallen warriors.
Touch of the Valkyries is a random feature, which you can trigger after losing spins. The Valkyries come in and transform warrior icons into wild symbols.
Should you have a stacked wild Valkyrie cover reels 1 or 5, or even both, then the March of the Valkyries feature will trigger. You get free re-spins of the reels, during which wild Valkyries are going to walk to the other end of the reels, moving one reel for each re-spin. Warrior symbols found in front of the wild Valkyrie will be turned to frozen wilds, which gain a 2x multiplier. A multiplier is also applied when two Wild Valkyries meet on the 3rd reel.
Theme & Design
The Norse mythology theme already gives the game an advantage over others, and once you see the design quality as well, I’m sure you will appreciate what is being offered here. In terms of symbols, there is the Valkyrie, Wild Logos, Hammers and Drinking Horns, along with warrior symbols which pay more, including here Helmets, Shields and Axes. The low paying icons have a rune-like quality to their design, and they’re the usual ones, from 10 to A.
Call of the Valkyries can be an exciting game, and the Viking female warrior theme is only partly responsible for that. The features contribute to it in a big way as well.
