Valkyrie Slot Review

Released December 2018

The Valkyrie game can be found at casinos offering Elk Studios software. Elk Studios are a small but quickly growing casino software developer primarily focusing on the mobile market. At the present time they only offer slots games. Players should be aware that this software provider includes ‘betting strategies’ as an automated feature. These should be avoided. They offer no mathematical gain to the player and increase the risk of large losses in comparison to your bankroll. As a standard Elk Studios do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game paytable. As such we can say that the House Edge of Valkyrie is 3.7%.

Valkyrie is made up of 5 reels, each one 3 symbols high. There are no traditional paylines, instead there are win ways, with 1024 in total.

Special Symbols

Wild – The “Gold Viking” is the Wild symbol, substituting for all symbols except the Free Spins and Bonus symbols.

Valhalla Free Spins – The Free Spins symbol is a gold, ruby encrusted, Viking symbol, that has the words Free Spins written across them. 3 or more Free Spins symbols will trigger the feature, with at least one Free Spin guaranteed and one randomly selected Valkyrie feature.

Bonus – The Bonus symbol is a series of Silver triangles, easy to spot because it conveniently has the word “Bonus” written across it. 3 or more Bonus symbols will award one respin in bonus mode with one randomly selected Valkyrie feature.

Bonus Features

Valkyrie Features – These features are only available during Valhalla Free Spins and Bonus respins. They are also selected at random.

Sword of Destiny – If this feature is selected at random a Wild Sword will fall on reels 2, 3 and 4, turning them completely wild.

Shield of Chance – If this feature is selected at random, a series of shields will fall to the reels and turn wild. The number of shield will be decided randomly.

Arrow of Fortune – If this feature is selected at random then arrows will be fired towards the reels and every arrow that is hit will generate a big symbol of the same type. The giant symbol will either be 2×2, 2×3 or 3×3 in size.


Is there a better medium to showcase random slices of luck than a Valkyrie? The legends of Norse mythology would choose who lived and died in battle, taking half of the chosen fallen with them to Valhalla, whilst the remaining dead made their way to Folkvagr, a kingdom ruled by the goddess Freyja. In this game there are plenty of random features to resemble the random nature of his particular section of Norse mythology. The game looks fantastic, with an amazing background and equally stunning symbols. It comes with Wilds, Free Spins and respins, although maybe not as many Free Spins as you might have hoped for. Additional features are always welcomed within Free Spins, with the 3 Valkyrie symbols adding a little bit of a random spin to proceedings. The house edge is reasonable, sitting at roughly what we would consider to be average. However, and this has been the case with all Elk games, we must score the game poorly because of the inclusion of betting strategies, that offer the player no advantage at all. The “Advanced Betting Strategies” that are built into this game are sold as an advantageous game feature, when these strategies offer the player no improvement over flat betting. The reality is that if you increase your bet, you’re more likely to lose money than you are to make any. This is poor practice, and it drags everything positive about the game down. We would be highly critical of any website offering bogus betting strategies so a game developer doing this is even more problematic for us. If this was not a feature in the game I would be scoring this much higher than I am.
