Valley of the Gods Slot Review
Ancient Egypt, possibly the most mysterious of all of the ancient civilizations - filled with mummies, cats, anthropomorphic gods and mystifying tales of the afterlife. The whole mummie thing freaks me out a little bit, but only because the idea of mummification spooks me in general. Ancient Egyptians knew how to live life to the fullest, probably because their lifespans were so short but let’s not overthink things. So, time to strap on your explorer's hat and head down into the belly of the pyramids, we’re gonna party it up with some long-deceased Pharaohs, and the relatives and pets they had killed so they could join them in the afterlife - yikes!
Valley of the Gods is a 5-reel, 45-payline, high volatility slot with 3125 ways to win. Powered by software from Yggdrasil, this game is not to be messed with. Symbols include different Hieroglyphics, images of various Ancient Egyptian gods and a rather stern looking Pharoah. There are also blue and red scarabs, both with different active features - but more on that later. The controls are easy to use and are all located below the reels ranging from left to right. I’ll run through them quickly: On the bottom left of the screen you’ll find your coin value, ranging from 0.04 to 4,00, and your cash bet, from 0.10 to 100. In the middle of the screen are your max bet, spin and Auto Play buttons and on the right are the displays for your wins and your total balance. Not too tricky to understand, unless you’ve had your brain scooped out with a long spoon (seriously, google it).
Yggdrasil often has their slots jam-packed with features and Valley of the Gods is no exception. By landing winning combos, you can expect to trigger Free Spin mode, which will unlock even more ways for you to play.
Man, the Egyptians really loved Scarab Beetles. There’s something about their sparkly bug butts that really got them going. The Scarab Collections feature is pretty damn nifty, but you’ll need to unlock both sets, red and blue, to activate it. Once you do so, you’ll earn a x2 multiplier as well as +1 extra life. However, for every 5 Blue Scarabs collected, you’ll win +1 multiplier. Unlocking 5 red Scarabs will earn you one additional life. If you don’t land a winning spin on this round, you’ll lose the life. Pretty brutal, amirite?
Valley of the Gods performs well. I’m not going to make a big song and dance of it because I don’t want to awake the mummies, but I was super impressed. The graphics are outrageously good, the game doesn’t lag, and it works well on all devices. 10/10, 5 stars - you get the point.
So, should you play this slot? I’d say yes. The graphics are superb, the game offers fantastic rewards, and you can play it, anywhere and anytime. So, unless you have an intense fear of Scarab beetles, I’d absolutely suggest giving it a go. Oh, and if you see Cleopatra, tell her I said hello - we go way back.
