SlotBeats entered the battlefield to award Peter & Sons its SOTW award with its most recent release, Valkyries, in collaboration with Yggdrasil.
A re-telling of Richard Wagner’s renowned opera – Rise of the Valkyries – the new slot title is a 5×3, 10-payline Norse-themed slot that follows the story of the Valkyries welcoming fallen heroes to Valhalla.
Stuart McCarthy, head of product and programmes at Yggdrasil, stated: “Despite being a relatively new studio Peter & Sons have already carved out a solid reputation for themselves, creating some of the most memorable online slots we’ve ever seen.
“Their enthusiasm for developing beautifully-designed games with truly engaging features really shines through, and there’s no better example of this than Valkyries.”
During the main game, if the player lands three scatters on the reels it unlocks the free spins bonus mode, awarding players with 10 spins. Moreover, the power reel is unlocked during the whole session.
Dropping wilds from the base spin are carried forward to power reel respins and drop one position.
In the base game, each new dropping wild on a base spin walks one position downwards in the next spin until it leaves the panel. Dropping wild positions are stored per bet level. Changing a bet when a dropping wild is present in the panel will remove it from next spin.
When dropping wilds appear on the power reel, it moves to the top position of the corresponding vertical reel. Dropping wilds can include a random multiplier.
Furthermore, locking wilds only appear when the wild reel is active. When a locking wild appears on the wild reel, it moves to any position of the corresponding vertical reel and remains sticky on that position until the feature ends. Locking wilds can include a random multiplier.
“We constantly strive to create superior and unique gaming experiences for players, and we genuinely believe we’ve hit the high notes with Valkyries,” noted Yann Bautista, business development manager at Peter & Sons.
“With a unique theme, wonderful visuals and some really exciting features, which can see players win more than 20,000x their bet, what’s not to love?”
