An exciting collaboration between Crazy Tooth Studio and Microgaming has given us the Arctic Valor slot, and just like a good book, you won't be able to put it down.


The vast playing area gives you six reels and 4,096 ways in which you can create wins, and the betting range should suit everyone as it offers a minimum and maximum stake of 15p and £150 respectively.

Our Verdict:

The Arctic Valor slot game features exquisite graphics and animations that bring the legendary Valkyries to life.


As the servants of the Norse god, Odin, it was the Valkyries task to protect brave soldiers in battle, and accompany those who died to the great feasting hall at Valhalla.


Plummeting icicles can fall down onto the reels as you play the Arctic Valor slot, triggering the Falling Icicle Feature where you're rewarded with instant wins and wild symbols. There's also a Free Spins Bonus where the Falling Icicle Feature is used on every spin.


As well as giving you more winning potential than you can shake a stick at (N.B., 4,096 ways to win), Arctic Valor offers an impressively high RTP of 96.7%.

Design:

In Microgaming's Arctic Valor, you have the protection of three powerful Valkyries who can all land fully or partially stacked on the reel set.


Behind the reels, there's a wintry landscape which makes you want to reach for a warm coat, and as you continue to play, you'll see snowflakes drifting across the screen and icicles forming at the top of the reels.


Underneath the Arctic Valor game logo at the top of the screen, there's an icicle forming above Reels 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. But they're not just there to look pretty; instead, they can prove potentially lucrative in the Falling Icicle Feature.


On the reels, you'll encounter the three Valkyries, coloured snowflakes, shields, bows and arrows, winged headdresses, and armour, all of which can bring you cash rewards.


As well as offering you 4,096 ways to win, the game uses six reels to make it possible to create six-of-a-kind winning combinations.


At the bottom-right, there's a vertical list of buttons that let you spin the reels, look at the pay awards, change your bet size, turn on Auto-Play, and toggle the sounds on and off.

Wild Symbol:

The red, orange and blue "WILD" represents the wild symbol in the Arctic Valor slot game, and it can make it easier to win prizes by replacing any symbol except the scatter.

Bonus Features:

One of our favourite special features in Arctic Valor is the Falling Icicle Feature. You'll see the icicles forming above Reels 1 to 5, and when they plunge to the bottom of the reels, they will reveal special rewards such as wild symbols and instant cash wins.


The Free Games Bonus in the Arctic Valor slot is triggered with three or more scatter symbols. Every free spin triggers the Falling Icicle Bonus, which means that you're likely to gain extra wilds or instant wins on each free spin.
