In this mysterious game, you re-spin with every win and hit winning combinations to expand your game area while discovering ancient mysteries. Clear the whole area and you invoke ancient incantations, which grant you huge treasures and near immortality in the form of huge multipliers and extra lives.
Progressive Jackpot: No
Although players have repeatedly made the trip back to ancient Egypt for online slot games, there is always enough time for another one, this time for Valley of the Gods from Yggdrasil Gaming.
Valley of the Gods is a five-reel slot that has five rows and a whopping 3,125 paylines that means that winning combos can be formed as long as there are matching symbols in adjacent reels beginning from the left-hand side. The reels spin within two statues that have a purpose, which we will discuss later on in this article.
But before the slot takes you to Ancient Egypt, you must first adjust your bets. By clicking on “Coin Value,” you can set coins size, ranging from the 0.004 to 4. “Max Bet” is used to regulate the maximum bet that is allowed, whereas “Spin” gets the reels going. “Autoplay” is used to turn the reels automatically without any pause, for a pre-determined number of times.
The Valley of the Gods looks absolutely stunning, which is expected from this particular game developer and is hardly a surprise given what the company has delivered in the past. Players can expect to bear witness to the imagery that is based on Ancient Egypt, including large statues of gods on each side of the reels and a sandy, ancient look to the entire setting.
With unique features that are truly innovative, players should be thrilled to get a chance to play Valley of the Gods. There have been many of games that have used re-spins as a way to incentivize players, but the number of twists included in this specific offering looks to be beyond what punters have seen from most other versions.
The four high-value symbols include godly representations, which will be all too familiar to fans of this genre. The lower values are golden shapes inlaid with colored gems that are also related to the theme such as the Eye of Ra, an Egyptian cat, and an Ankh. There are no wild or bonus symbols in Valley of the Gods but there is a scarab “blocker” icon that we will be talking about in the section below.
Scarab Blockers and Free Spins
On your first spin, 2 of the scarab blocker symbols will be placed on the reels in outer positions but when you land a winning combo of three or more symbols, that number of blockers will be taken away. Each successive win will remove more blockers but a non-winning spin will replace them all.
If you manage to clear all the blockers out of the way, the feature will start and initially, the blue gems on the reels will fly to the statue on the left and fill up the multiplier meter. Meanwhile, the red gems will fill up the extra life meter on the right.
You’ll start this feature with one extra life and then the free spins will commence. Golden gem symbols in winning combos will add more multiplier or extra life gems to the meters but any non-winning spin will remove one life. When all lives are gone, the round is over and the blockers return to their positions.
