Nordic mythology in a hypermodern slot
Canadian casino players will want to keep their eyes open for the arrival of an exciting new slots title which has just been launched by one of the world’s leading online game developers, Microgaming, in partnership with Crazy Tooth Studio.
A Hot Game with an Icy Theme
The new title is called Arctic Valor, and it is based on the adventures of the Valkyries or Norse legend. For those who aren’t quite up to speed with Nordic mythology, the Valkyries were formidable female figures who determined who should live and who should die in battle. In this game the battle itself takes place across a frozen Arctic tundra, but despite that chilly backdrop the slots excitement here is as hot as it gets.
4,096 Ways to Win
Arctic Valor is a six-reel game with four rows, which gives the player 4,096 ways to win on any given spin. Game symbols include shields, weapons, snowflakes of various colours, the Valkyries themselves and more. All of the graphics are superbly detailed, and when the Valkyries are stacked they come to life very impressively thanks to some gorgeous animation work.
Falling Icicle Feature
Start playing the game and you will notice that there are several icicles hanging over the reels. These icicles grow as you play, and can randomly break off and crash down onto the reels themselves. When that happens, touch the icicles to smash them and reveal some pleasant – and potentially profitable – surprises, such as wild symbols or cash prizes.
Bonus Free Spins
Arctic Valor also features a Bonus Free Spins round which is triggered by getting three or more scatter symbols on the reels at the same time. When you enter this round, you get seven free spins and the icicles fall every time, which means that the number of wins you land can increase in line with the excitement.
Comments from the Creators
Ben Hoffman, who is President at Crazy Tooth Studio, said: ‘We are very excited to be working with Microgaming, whose extraordinary position in the market, diverse portfolio of excellent games and extensive list of operators will enable us to greatly diversify our capabilities and deliver our range of innovative slots and games to new audiences.

Over at Microgaming itself, Games Publisher David Reynolds said: ‘Arctic Valor provides a visually stunning journey into a land of ice and snow, complete with a fantastically vibrant, Norse-tinged atmosphere. With 4,096 ways to win, players can also look forward to smashing their way through to some truly epic rewards via the game’s unique and suspenseful icicle feature.’
Arctic Valor is a beautifully imagined and superbly executed game which will delight slots players everywhere. Launched on Wednesday 20 February for mobile as well as desktop formats (see our Microgaming page for pointers to the relevant casinos), this is a title that you can dip into as and when the opportunity arises.
