Gates of Valhalla Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Gates of Valhalla Slot (Pragmatic Play)Pragmatic Play is among the most respected game developers, and often, this supplier of slots does not disappoint with their well thought out designs.

In this review, we will look at one of their latest Norse-themed slot machine that goes by the name Gates of Valhalla.

Here is my unbiased review of this modern designed slot with a large game area:

Game Set-Up

For this title, the developer has gone with a 5x5 reels design which is a fairly large game area.

On it are 10 paylines, plus a couple of features that include wilds, multipliers, scatters, and free spins.

Betting and Prizes

Gates of Valhalla costs as little as $0.10 for a spin. However, there are other options for higher bets, and the maximum that you can use is $50 per spin.

I love the potential that Gates of Valhalla has, and on a lucky day, you can walk away with bets of as much as 10,000x the stake.

Volatility here is at its highest, but as a real money gamer, you also get to work with a fair RTP of 96.46%. Pragmatic Play allows online casino operators to change this, and you may find RTP’s of between 95.50% and 94.47%.

Gates of Valhalla Slot Features

The Tumbling Reels feature is present here, and as usual, it removes the winning symbols and replaces them with new ones. This way, you get more opportunities to form more winning combos.

The Golden Shield & Sword is available on all the reels and it is what serves as the wild feature. As a wild, I could use it as a replacement for the regular icons, but not the scatter.

Another thing that I noticed is that if the wild is part of the Tumbles, it is not removed during Tumbles but moves to a different location next to it (but only if one is available).

You get a 1x multiplier boost that is applied after every such move. The highest that it can go is 5x. The values of the multiplier are added together and then applied to the overall prize.

The feature that I got to enjoy the most is the free spins bonus. To trigger it, I needed at least 3 scatter symbols landing on the reels.

Depending on the symbols available (3 to 5 are needed), you will be rewarded with 10 to 15 free spins. It’s possible to retrigger the feature for an extra 10 spins.

Theme & Design

Valhalla is a term used to refer to men “Hall of the Fallen”. It is a common word in Norse mythology referred to as Odin’s Hall. This is a place created with shafts of spears, with shields serving as its roof that served as a resting place for me injured in combat.

Pragmatic Play did a good thing with this theme, and I love the carved images of the deities that serve as the top symbols.

Four low-paying card symbols are present, while better-paying ones are those with Norse deities. The Free Spins logo and the Multiplier Wild serve as feature icons.


Gates of Valhalla has decent top prizes, a mix of special features, and a fair RTP. This is the combination that every modern gamer wants, and I can recommend the slot to all levels of players.
