Valley of the Gods arrived in August 2017 making a worthy addition to Yggdrasil’s portfolio. Mighty Gods of ancient Egypt, Horus and Anubis, guard the entrance to riches unimaginable to mortals. Dare to set foot on the scorching sands of the desert and Gods will help you win Extra Lives, Win Multipliers, Respins and wins going as high as 580,000 coins.
Meticulously designed with crisp visuals, sensational animations and a soothing soundtrack with a hint of mystique, Valley of the Gods truly has a lot to offer.
Play Valley of the Gods
All high-paying symbols are representations of Egyptian Gods. Horus and Anubis offer payouts of 500 coins when 5 appear on a payline. Landing 5 Bastet or Isis symbols will present you with a 250 coins prize. 6 low-value symbols are depicted with Egyptian hieroglyphics providing payouts from 25 to 40 coins for 5 matching icons.
The game doesn’t offer Scatter or Wild symbols which is a drawback of this slot.
How to Play
Once the game loads, you will face a 5-reel, 5-row layout, soon realizing that some positions are covered with imprinted Scarabs on golden plates. Initially, the slot offers 45 winlines and their number increases significantly, up to 3125, depending on how many blockers are present. These blockers are destroyed by winning symbols that release Scarabs which unlock them.
To land wins, align 3 or more identical symbols on adjacent reels, starting from the leftmost position.
However, before winning, you should take care of your wager by setting the coin size, ranging from $0.004 to $4.00. Set the reels in motion by pressing Spin, Max Bet or activating Autoplay with a set number of automatic rounds.
Strategy & Tips
The lack of Scatters and Wilds is compensated by a Respin on every winning spin.
Each time you land a winning combo you will activate a Respin and unlock more ways to win. Respins continue as long as wins occur.
Since there are 12 blocked positions, it takes 12 winning symbols to destroy them. When all blockers are destroyed, win symbols turn into Red or Blue Scarabs collected for Multipliers and Extra Lives features.
Once activated, these collections will provide you with Multipliers and Respins on losing spins.
