Take a Journey to the Arctic

We have reviewed many games and we must agree that Arctic Valor pokie is up there with the best. The game is themed around Valkyries, female warriors from Norse Mythology.  The game has beautifully presented graphics that include photo-real images of the heroic characters.

The backdrop to the game is a chilly landscape with animated snowflakes wandering down across the symbols. Gleaming icicles suspend perilously from the top of the game and these play an important role during the bonus games.  Colorful snowflakes have smaller awards, while the Valkyries and the weapons have higher rewards.

Chill Out with the Valkyries

The game offers you with plenty of betting and control options. Players can spin the reels from as little as 0.15 to as much as 15.00.  You win by landing on three or more matching symbols anywhere on adjacent reels. The sequence can start from the right side, left side or even across the center reels.

Arctic Valor has 4,096 possible ways to win which making it a medium volatility game where players can land frequent winning combos.  The game has an RTP of 96.7%, which is a long-term average, so punters can see lower or higher returns in a session.  Other options under your control include auto-spinning for up to 100 times. There is a Quickspin button that speeds up things for you.

Watch out for Icicles

While the three weapons and the snowflakes symbols will pay out some good prizes, you will find out that the Valkyrie symbols are the most rewarding. When any of the three Valkyrie lands on the reels, you can win up to 100 coins. They can also appear as stacked symbols, which makes it easier to collect wins from them. Nice animations change the Valkyries from mere images of their heads to full-length views when they are stacked as part of a winning combo.  You will also come across a wild symbol that acts like any other symbol top fill in the gaps in a sequence of matching symbols if need be.

The Icicles are key to some special features. These can drop down onto the reels during any phase of the game filling one, two, or three rows.  They then disclose either additional wilds symbols or cash prizes that are paid as multiples of the total bet.

The scatter symbol is represented by a blue and pink-tinged snowflake and activates the key Arctic Valor Feature. 3 or more scatter symbols will trigger 7 free spins. During the free spins the icicles will descend each time.  Any time a full stack of any Valkyrie symbol appear, the icicles extend to more reels, giving you more cash payouts or wilds.

Betting and Prizes

The betting range as mentioned is between $0.15 and $150 per spin. This means that up to $10 goes to each virtual bet line. Players will not get the 15 lines; it is the betting system’s way of covering 4096 ways to win.

The rewards of Arctic Valor are relatively low, reaching a top value of $100 per combination—10x your wager per line. This is a low jackpot, but the symbols appear stacked and pay multiple times so the wins tend to add up.  At most, the jackpot will go over $366,840. This is a good payout considering the fact that medium volatility of the game and the low maximum wager.  The payout can entice higher rollers back if the low maximum wager put them off in the first place.

Our Take

The visuals of Arctic Valor are some of the best around. Each symbol is designed to look like it has been made by a top animation studio. The art if of high quality and matches well with the game theme making sure that the players are immersed in the world of Arctic Valor from the instant they start playing.  In terms of gameplay, this pokie offers a traditional game with some minor variations to make it stand out.  The use of 6 reels that are higher than normal means that the main game has some extra excitement. That plus the 4096 paylines and the fact that winning combos can be created anywhere on the reels means that the base game has much to offer.  The icicle feature that can be activated randomly is a bonus, offering increased wilds or instant wins. Arctic Valor is an interesting game to play!
