Rise of the Valkyrie Slot (Yggdrasil)

Rise of the Valkyrie Slot (Yggdrasil)When it comes to Nordic-themed slot machines, those that feature the Valkyries as the main characters are usually the most aesthetically appealing.

Rise of the Valkyrie is more than just a pretty face, which is a plus for this new Yggdrasil Gaming slot. The slot is a joint release since Yggdrasil has partnered with Boomerang Studio to produce it.

This is what you can expect from the Rise of the Valkyries slot:

Game Set-Up

The slot comes with 243 ways that are held on its 5x3 reels set-up. The slot can offer as many as 15,552 ways to win, thanks to its Splitz mechanism.

It’s a slot with lots of interesting features that include the Splitz mechanic, respins, wild, and the collections feature.

Betting and Prizes

The betting range for real money spins is between $0.30 and $30 per round. Rise of the Valkyrie is a feature-rich slot, and with the help of some of its features, you may be lucky to hit the highest payout which is a 5,000x jackpot.

This is quite good considering that the slot offers relatively low volatility. The RTP is also decent, and at 96.51%, it is above average. However, with the Side Strike feature coming in, you can get an increased RTP of 98%.

Rise of the Valkyrie Slot Features

Rise of the Valkyrie is played in clusters of 10 paid spins, the last being the most likely time to win big. Your safest bet is to collect as many Valkyrie Splitz icons as you can, as this also implies their present position. The marked spots will all have Splitz symbols on them during the 10th spin.

The Splitz symbol, which portrays the Valkyrie, will be converted into a random type of symbol, with 2 to 4 of those stuffed into a single spot. As a result, you can get up to 4 wilds, regular symbols, or even scatters. This increases the number of symbols on that reel as well as the number of ways to win (up to 15,552).

There's also the wild symbol, which you'll use as a substitute. This allows you to form more winning combos, especially with the existing ways to win.

The rise of the Valkyrie's last feature is the respins, a Hold & Win style bonus which we've seen several times before. In this case, you will be required to land Coins at least 6 times so as to trigger it.

Theme & Design

The slot Rise of the Valkyrie seems to have been inspired by the mythology of Scandinavia. The developers have used a female figure as the main character.

Initially, we see the Splitz symbol that has the Valkyrie, after which the scatter Coin appears, while the Valkyrie on a horse comes in to serve as the wild.

For the major symbols, we get to see the gates of Valhalla, swords, ravines, shields, and arrows. There are four low-pay icons in the form of card suits.


With Rise of the Valkyrie, you get plenty to enjoy, especially given the slot’s low volatility.

I love the Splitz mechanic that brings in lots of goodies, not to forget the top payout. This is an excellent combination that makes the game suitable for all levels of players.
