ReelPlay partner Boomerang has teamed up with Yggdrasil to bring players one of the most unique slot releases of the year, Rise of the Valkyrie.
Inspired by Norse mythology, this 5-reel, 15,552 payline slot utilises Yggdrasil’s innovative Splitz mechanic which can see symbols split into four additional ones, significantly boosting the number of ways to win.
During normal gameplay, Splitz symbols can land on the reels over the course of nine spins leaving behind a marker. On the tenth spin, symbols that are bordered will split up to four times.
If six or more coin symbols appear, players will be awarded three re-spins. During this, all coin symbols are held and every other position on the reels is spun. Coin prizes can land on vacant positions and will hold a value between of 1x – 888x. If another coin appears, the re-spins remaining automatically reset to three.
Players can also place boomerang’s ‘Side Strike’ bets at every spin. Uniquely bringing an element of table game play to slots, red chips appear on symbols on reel one and green chips appear on symbols on reel five. Predicting the correct outcome offers additional rewards of up to 5x on top of the regular slots outcome.
Part of the YG Masters portfolio, Rise of the Valkyrie is powered by GATI, Yggdrasil’s state-of-the-art technology enabling partners to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardised development toolkit to produce consistently cutting-edge content followed by rapid distribution.
Stuart McCarthy, head of product & programs at Yggdrasil, said: “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, CEO at ReelPlay, said: “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.”
