Developer and game provider Yggdrasil has partnered with Boomerang Studios to release their new slot, Rise Of The Valkyrie Splitz.
The brand-new video slot is under license to ReelPlay, and it uses a 5×3 layout with 15,552 paylines and an RTP of 96.5%.
The game also has medium to high volatility, which means you’re more likely to make infrequent large wins over regular small ones.
It also requires a bet of between £0.30 and £30 per spin, and its symbols include the gates to Valhalla, a large bird, a gold sword, a red shield, flying daggers, and heart, club, spade, and diamond symbols too.
The Rise Of The Valkyrie slot is available with all Yggdrasil-partnered casino operators, including Videoslots, Casumo, PlayOJO, Miami Jackpots, PlayJango, and numerous other mobile casinos.
The Rise Of The Valkyrie slot has numerous special features. For example, the Wild symbol, represented by Valkyrie riding a winged horse, substitutes all symbols except the Collect, Coin, and Splitz symbols. Wild symbols also only appear on the second to fifth reels.
Splitz Valkyrie symbols split into two, three or four individual symbols when they land, but they only appear on the second, third, and fourth reels during the base game. All Splitz transform into the same symbol. During your first nine spins, all Splitz symbols leave behind a border. On your tenth spin, all borders turn into Splitz symbols as part of the Splitz Storm feature.
Three re-spins are awarded when six or more Coin symbols appear on the reels. All Coin symbols are held while other symbols are spun. Landing a Coin or Collect symbol resets the re-spin counter. Coin symbols award prizes of between 1x and 888x your bet, and Collect symbols immediately award all Coin prizes.
Finally, the Rise Of The Valkyrie slot has the Side Strike feature, which is only available in some jurisdictions. When available, the Red Chip appears on the first reel, and the Green Chip appears on the fifth reel. If your selection appears twice more than the other selection, a 5x Strike Bet is awarded. If your selection appears once more than the other selection, a 2x Strike Bet is awarded. If your and the other selection appears two times, a 1x Strike Bet is awarded.
Stuart McCarthy, the Head of Product and Programs at Yggdrasil, said in a statement: “Rise Of The Valkyrie looks like it’s going to be another huge hit, featuring our popular Splitz mechanic and a proven theme true to our roots.
“With truly unique game mechanics, engaging bonus features and lucrative side bets, what’s not to love about this title from Boomerang?”
David Johnson, the CEO at ReelPlay, added: “Boomerang’s Rise Of The Valkyrie comes packed with features, including their proprietary Side Strike, which allows players to up the ante at every spin, whilst Splitz provides the opportunity for increasing ways.
“The launch of the game is a real collaboration of our times – a super Boomerang game concept, combined with ReelPlay technology and delivered to market by Yggdrasil.”
The release of Rise Of The Valkyrie Splitz comes as Yggdrasil continues to partner with other developers under the YG Masters program to release new content. Recent releases include ReelPlay’s Bananaz 10K Ways, Peter & Sons’ Wild Duel, 4ThePlayer’s 60 Seconds Heist, Bang Bang Games’ Super Cash Drop Gigablox, Bulletproof Games’ Tiki Runner 2 DoubleMax, and more.
