Valhall Gold Features
Let's get things underway with the win ways mechanic. You don't need matching symbols to land along a fixed line; instead, they just have to drop on adjacent reels. 3+ matching symbols will get you a win with 4 stone blocks being the lowest payers, the Celtic designs produce the mid-sized wins the remaining 4 regular symbols bring the top payouts.
There are special symbols to look out for and these all produce various modifiers. We’ll take a look at those in just a moment.
First, it's good to know that the row height is not set in stone and this will increase with each winning sequence. It can grow to 8 rows high and even 9 if a larger block of symbols lands towards the top.
Winning symbols are removed and new ones drop down into place. This could continue your winning sequence and accumulate decent wins.
There are a ton of modifiers in play and these are what make the game exciting and slightly complicated at the same time. Spike symbols will produce a run of matching symbols in the direction of the spike and hopefully, this will create a decent win at the same time. Almighty Thor is a 2x2 Wild symbol that stays in place while new symbols drop in. There are also Odin's ravens 2x1 symbols and these ordinarily act as a blocker unless 2 or more of them land at the same time—in this case, they become a Wild symbol.
There is another symbol called a Trickster Loki and this has the power to produce some of the above modifiers and others as well. It lands as a 2x2 symbol and is only triggered when on the reels at the same time a win occurs. You could receive a multiplier of up to x10, ignite the ability to produce wins from right to left, add random Spike symbols and upgrade symbols as well.
To trigger the bonus game, you’ll need at least 3 Scatter symbols to land on the reels and this will award you 10 free games. More spins are available with additional Scatter symbols rearing their heads. 25 free spins is the maximum.
One of the main benefits of the Bonus Game is that there’s a safety level that starts at row 5 and as the rows begin to expand, they won’t reset to below this level when you end a winning sequence.
Modifiers are in play thanks to Loki, so you’ll need to see the Trickster Loki symbol land and a win spark to its interests.
Achieving another win after a Loki Modifier is activated means it’s saved to the inventory and it becomes sticky for the remaining spins.
