Arctic Valor is a slot by a Crazy Tooth Studio that is powered by Microgaming’s software. Even though they are a small developing company, Crazy Tooth has done a fantastic job designing this video slot. However, I didn’t like the spinning of the reels; it looks glitchy and doesn’t fit the quality design of the slot. Arctic Valor has a Norse mythology theme and it is set in a cave where the crystalized icicles are eager to fall onto the floor and shatter to reveal your prize.
Arctic Valor RTP
Another thing that Arctic Valor has going on for itself is its RTP. It can boast with an RTP of 96.70%, which is just one of the reasons that motivate me to play; especially if you compare it to the industry’s average of 95%.
Arctic Valor Gameplay
Arctic Valor introduces a sleek user interface design and has straightforward gameplay – exactly what I want to see in a video slot! It features a playing grid of 6 reels and 4 rows of symbols, and a total of 4,096 fixed paylines. Make sure to adjust your initial bet before you spin the reels; the lowest you can bet is 0.15, while the maximum bet is 150.00 credits per spin. The slot also features both flavor-of-life features — the Turbo Spins and the AutoPlay feature. The former will speed up the gameplay while the latter will automatically spin the reels for you.
Arctic Valor Symbols and Bonus Features
There is a total of 11 basic symbols included in Arctic Valor: three differently-colored snowflakes, a shield, a helmet, a crossbow, a pair of swords and four Valkyrie portraits. When it comes to the special symbols, the game features both the Wild and the Scatter symbol. The Wild will substitute for every other symbol except the Scatter.
Icicle Feature can be triggered randomly on any spin. It will cause 1 or more icicles to fall onto the reels and land on 1, 2 or 3 symbols positions each. Icicles can reveal either the Wild symbol or cash prizes.
By landing 3 or more Scatter symbols, you will trigger the Arctic Valor Bonus feature that will award you with 7 Free Spins. During the feature, every Free Spin will trigger the Icicle feature. If you land one of the premium symbols fully stacked (Valkyrie portraits), the icicles will increase up to 3 positions. The rewards that icicles reveal also remain on the screen throughout the feature.
Arctic Valor doesn’t have a potential for crazy wins as the maximum payout is 2,700x your initial stake. However, you won’t have any difficulties triggering the bonus features which can lead to good payouts. On top of that, I love the design, so it has my thumb of approval. Give it a try and see for yourself!
