Yggdrasil has launched its latest YG Masters hit, Valhalla Saga: Thunder of Thor, developed in partnership with independent software studio Jelly. The hot new online slot release, which sees players battle for wins up to 10,000x the stake, is the first in a new three-game Valhalla Saga compilation from the London-based studio, with a pair of follow-up games to feature two other famous Vikings: Loki and Odin!
Game one in the exciting Viking trilogy incorporates Jelly’s exclusive new PowerLinks™ game mechanic and the Thunder of Thor modifier, which can award players wild multipliers of up to 100x for potentially huge wins!
Playable on any device, this high volatility spinner has 20 paylines, a 95.90 percent RTP and a €400,000 max win.
There are nine symbols in this 5×3 video slot, which payout for landing at least three matching symbols, starting from the leftmost reel. The game’s low pays comprise 10 – A card icons while premiums include a golden chalice, an axe, longboats and the thunder god himself. Wins range from X0.2 to X25 the triggering bet, with the basic payout range on a minimum €0.20 bet being €0.04 to €5 and for the €40 maximum bet, €8 to €1,000.
Mjölnir, Thor’s mighty hammer is on the game’s wild symbol and can land in any position to replace all symbols with the exception of the scatter.
In the PowerLinks “Free Spins” round, players can win up to 10,000x. Triggering the feature happens when at least five scatters land on the reels. By activating the bonus round, players are awarded 5 extra spins, with special reel zones created by the triggering scatter symbols. Any additional scatters that land in the reel zones means bigger prizes when the bonus round wraps up.
Meanwhile, the Thunder of Thor modifier can be randomly triggered on any spin and when active creates wild symbols with attached win multipliers of x2, x5, x10, x25, x50, or x100. It is also possible to trigger a bonus respin if the player lands four scatter symbols. The will cause the remaining reels to respin, giving players a second chance to land the fifth scatter, which will get them into the “Free Spins” bonus.
