If you are a fan of Norse Mythology, you’ll be right at home with the Arctic Valor slot, produced by Migrogaming and developed by Crazytooth Studios. This is more than just your everyday winter wonderland-themed slot with a feeling of calm and serenity.

In fact, if you can picture the lovechild of the northern lights, 1980s videogame art, traditional Icelandic iconic imagery, and a modern-day graphics engine, you would have a pretty good idea about the theme of this slot.

Game Setup

The setup of the reels on this online slot is just as epic as the theme. While most other options come with 4 or 5 reels, Arctic Valor comes with a whopping six reels. While it may not seem like it makes so much of the difference, it actually takes the paylines from the traditional 243 that Microgaming often offers to a huge 4096 ways.

Needless to say, when you get lucky and Arctic Valor it is awe-inspiring. Another thing about this slot from Microgaming is that it has one of the highest RTP’s we’ve seen in the industry for a long time. With an average return to player percentage of 96.7%, your chances of staying in the game on this online slot are definitely good.

Symbols

When it comes to the symbols, there are four different Valkyries who serve as the highest paying symbols. After that there are symbols depicting items that Valkyries might have with them, and they pay slightly less. The lowest paying symbols in the game are the beautifully crafted snowflakes.

Symbols to watch out for, of course, are the wild symbol and the scatter symbol. As usual, the wild will take the place of all of the other symbols in the game apart from the scatter symbol, but maybe less usual is the fact that the wilds themselves can also create winning combinations.

Icicle Feature

A fun extra bonus feature that is connected to the wild symbol is the Icicle feature. In this mode, which is randomly activated, icicles may fall onto the reels carrying prices with them as they drop. Prizes can be any number of things, including cash prizes, free spins, or wilds.

Bonus Spins Feature

the bonus spins feature is triggered by the scatter symbol when at least three are present on the reels after a spin. There are seven free spins handed out for this feature, and for every new spin more icicles fallen to the reels bringing prizes with them each time. There is a lot of potential with this feature depending on how it plays out and depending on how much you wagered to activate it. The higher the initial bet the higher the multiplied payouts for many winnings will be.

Conclusion

Whether you’re a relative newcomer or a long-time veteran of online slots, you think you will surely enjoy Arctic Valor. It has all the normal features that players love, plus a few extra to keep things exciting. If this is one of the first slots you play, the icicle feature might also spoil you a bit, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
