The Valley of the Gods in Egypt is legendary for the different pyramids, sculptures, and other artifacts that were in place thousands of years ago. This has led to countless video slots being created with an Ancient Egyptian theme, but most of them are substandard, as they don't stand out. Thankfully, Yggdrasil Gaming's Valley of the Gods slot is different, bringing us a sharp looking game complete with a neat gameplay mechanic that makes it worth playing.
Valley of the Gods is a 5 reel slot that can get up to 3,125 ways to win. The game opens up the more you string together wins, with a bunch of extra wins then possible. The game's symbols are obviously themed toward Egypt and include, hieroglyphs, scarabs, Anubis, Tut, the cat god, and the eagle god. These symbols are all very sharp and colorful, matching up well with the theme. It should be noted that Valley of the Gods can be played on smartphones and tablets, and it's one of the better looking mobile slots that I've come across recently.
Features in the game seem simplistic, but they pop up enough to make it not an issue. The game has expanding reels that grow with each win. During a winning spin, players are treated to a re-spin, with more symbol slots unlocked. This gives you a chance to chain together impressive wins, which came more often than I expected. These bonus features give us a return to player percentage of 96.2%, which is just about in line with what we expect from a Yggdrasil slot.
If you're looking for a new game to play, then I highly recommend you check out Valley of the Gods. It looks great, plays great, and is one of the rare games with an Egyptian theme to stand out on its theme.
