Valley of the Gods developed by Yggdrasil
Valley of the Gods is for anyone who craves for Egypt? Not in the terms of an all-inclusive trip with free drinks. More of the movie “Mummy” if you have seen it. In that movie, you do not want to hang out with the beetles anyway, but in this slot, they will be your best friends who increase your life and your multiplier and open several expanding reels.
Yggdrasil has developed the slot Valley of the Gods, and we know they have spent a lot of time to get it perfect. Yggdrasil is known for quality and design, and it feels like they always offer excellent graphics and fun effects with innovative ideas.
The theme here is Egypt, Pharaoh, Pyramids, and all-around, including beetles and mysticism. You think directly about pyramids, secret rooms, and treasures. The whole slot looks like a mighty entrance to a pyramid guarded by each stone statue, The “Gods” called Horus and Anubis, one for the multiplier and one for extra life, and they are needed.
Valley of the Gods has expanding reels, and the slot constantly expands as you win. Beetles that unlock the blocks replace the number of winnings.
The volatility in this slot is medium-high; it is 67. For those of you who do not know how volatility works, we will explain it. It is a value to the extent to which a slot brings profit or how much and how often you can expect to win. Low volatility usually means winnings often and in smaller amounts. High volatility is thus the opposite. Not as often but winnings with higher sums. You can say that if you have money saved and want to win a little bigger, you should try slots with high volatility. Another term for volatility may also be variance.

What is it like playing Valley of the Gods?
Valley of the Gods is a real pleasure to spin, the game engine itself is well made and also the graphics. Immediately when you start spinning, the tension constantly increases to unlock more lines. You immediately feel that you have a clear goal (don’t you always have that?) To remove all locked places and reach the big profits. In slots of this type, it becomes obvious, and the design also makes the slot entertaining. The animations themselves are also nicely made, but you can expect nothing less when Yggdrasil releases new games because they are known for making well-detailed productions.
Introductory film and story
We like the intro film that gets you in a great mood with gold-colored beetles and typical Egyptian music.
At the entrance, these stone gods stand, and the slot conceals the portal itself. The reels and symbols have a detailed design with bright colors and gold symbols. The buttons on the slot have frames with gold, and purple background color makes everything look in excess.
The gods Horus and Anubis
Alongside the castle reels, you have the gods Horus and Anubis to help you get into the pyramid and get the big prize. Horus helps you get the high multiplier gain and Anubis gives you extra life. These deities eyes sometimes gleam in blue and red as a sign that they are ready to help you, but it is only when all the blocked playing boards on the expanded wheels are gone.
The framing is also nice where you see pyramids in the background. You should run the slot in full-screen mode and then at a casino where you can minimize the casino menu, so it does not interfere with your experience.
How does the bonus feature work?
When you start spinning in the Valley of the Gods, you see that some symbols are covered with golden beetles, to unlock these beetles and reach the bonus feature you have to get winning lines. Once you have unlocked all the beetles, the pyramid opens, and you have a chance to win all the symbols. Anubis also give you one extra life. Horus will reward you with a 2x multiplier. Now when the pyramid is open, you also have a whole 3125 ways to win and perfect conditions with an extra life and 2x multiples.
Multiplier and extra life
In addition to 3125 ways to win, the gods Horus and Anubis also come into the game, Horus has given power to the blue hieroglyphs and Anubis to the red.
When you win on the Horus hieroglyphs, you collect to get a higher multiplier. To achieve this, you need to get five blue hieroglyphs together, and you will get a higher multiplier. For example, if you win six hieroglyphs, the 6th will end up in Horus, and you will only need four more to get one more multiplier.
Similarly, it works when you win on Anubis hieroglyphs. If you get five red hieroglyphs, you get one extra life. To get the big win you need Horus help to get a high multiplier and Anubis is there to make sure you can get extra life ie. further spin if you do not win on existing ones.
So as the bonus feature works, you have to win to keep spinning. If you do not win in a spin, the bonus feature ends. If, on the other hand, you have extra lives to pick up from Anubis, you will have an extra chance until your extra lives disappear.
What we like about Valley of the Gods
We like the excitement of the Valley of the Gods, when you enter the slot, you see that some reels are covered and immediately become interested to know what secrets are hiding behind. We also like how well Yggdrasil has done the slot, everything flows well, and there are no interruptions when you play, click and instant action with every spin!
This slot is addictive; you can’t stop playing because you always want to succeed at opening the gates of the pyramid.
What could be better?
When you get extra life or multipliers from the Gods, we think Yggdrasil could have made the animations even better lik in their other successful slot Empire Fortune.
