Behold the Faces of Freya
wed 3 mar 2021
Faces of Freya is a brand new slot
from Play'n GO
, which is based on the goddess Freyja of Norse mythology
. It's refreshing to see a Norse-inspired game that focuses on a female icon rather than on the more obvious male ones such as Odin, Thor and Loki. It's also very good to see that this slot isn't overtly feminine just because Freya takes the starring role. This is a slot that can be thoroughly enjoyed by anyone, and if you have an interest in Norse mythology, so much the better.
Faces of Freya: The Format
This is a five-reel slot with three rows. It gives you 20 ways to win
with each spin, and the game is set against a gorgeous natural landscape which is beautifully animated. Look carefully, and you'll see the grass swaying gently in the breeze, as well as flocks of birds flying across the lake in the distance. An orchestral soundtrack quickly establishes a suitably evocative atmosphere, so be sure to wear headphones when playing on mobile
for the best experience.
Regular symbols used on the semi-transparent reels include four Nordic patterns engraved in coloured pieces of rock, a Shield and Axe, a Wild Boar, a Large Cat and a Torc
. Freya herself is the most valuable symbol of all and also serves as a wild, whilst her Brisingamen necklace serves as a scatter. All of these symbols are very nicely detailed, and when any one of them helps you win, it will be highlighted with a smoothly animated flourish.
Spins of Sorcery, Love and War
Land three scatter symbols on the reels at the same time, and you will trigger a Spins of Sorcery, Love and War feature
. As the name suggests, these are three different Free Spins features, and the one you get will be determined at random.
will randomly select one symbol from the Shield and Axe, Wild Boar, Large Cat or Torc symbol. All symbols of a lower value will then be upgraded into the one that has just been selected.
will add anything from two to five wild symbols to the game at the rate of no more than one symbol per reel.
will give you a multiplier of x2, x3, x5 or x10 and apply it to all wins landed during the feature.
In all cases, you will enjoy six free spins, with an extra spin being awarded every time you land another scatter symbol on the reels.
Folkvang is the name of the battlefield over which Freya rules
, and this feature is triggered by getting four or five scatter symbols on the reels at the same time. Here you will get to enjoy special Folkvang versions of Sorcery, Love and War - one after the other - followed by a Finale round.
- Folkvang Sorcery will give you five free spins. Here the Shield and Axe symbol will be upgraded to the Wild Boar from the outset. Land three scatters, and the Wild Boars will be upgraded to Large Cats. Land five scatters, and the Large Cats will be upgraded to Torcs.
- Folkvang Love gives you another five free spins. Two wilds will be added to the game from the outset, and this will increase to 3, 4 and 5 when you get 3, 5 and 7 scatters, respectively.
- Folkvang War gives you yet another five free spins. The active win multiplier here will start at x2, and it will increase to x3, x5, x10 and x20 as you get 3, 5, 7 or 9 scatter symbols, respectively.
- Folkvang Finale will give you a final set of free spins. Here the progress made in the previous three stages - namely the symbol upgrades, wilds and multipliers - will all be in play at once.
This is an exciting multi-level feature which gives you a chance to win up to 5,000 times your stake
Variety Makes a Difference
'Variety is imperative in this industry because players need to be stimulated,' said Play'n GO CPO Martin Zettergen. There are so many options available to them nowadays, but many fall back on the same tropes and ideas. Variety in our themes and narratives, like basing this game on a lesser-known character, and variety in our features give players something different to look forward to in a medium that they love.'
Discover Freya's Feature-Packed Adventure
We know exactly what Martin Zettergen means. As slot reviewers, we have seen more than our fair share of games based on Norse mythology. Many of them are great, but they do tend to hammer out the same old stereotypes if you forgive the subtle Thor reference. Not only does Faces of Freya stand out from the crowd in that respect, but it's also a very impressive and feature-packed slot in its own right. See you on the field!
