Yggdrasil and Jelly unleash electrifying hit Valhalla Saga: Thunder of Thor

| By Guy Parsons
New title is the second release from Jelly since joining the YG Masters programme.

Yggdrasil, the leading worldwide publisher of online gambling content, has partnered with Jelly for an epic Norse adventure, Valhalla Saga: Thunder of Thor.  Prepare for glory in this ultra-epic Viking series like no other! 

Set against the backdrop of a barren land, Thunder of Thor boasts iconic artwork, from runic symbols to fearsome axes, longboats and vikings.  

The first title in the Valhalla Saga trilogy features the legendary Thor in this 5×3, 20 payline video slot, and sees Jelly’s new PowerLinks-powered innovative free spins mechanic make its highly anticipated debut.  PowerLinks features award money-driven prizes in the free spins and will always guarantee a feature payout. 

On any spin, the Thunder of Thor modifier can trigger to create wild symbols with attached multipliers of x2, x5, x10, x50 or x100 to tantalise the potential for huge wins.  A bonus respin can trigger if the player has four scatter symbols in view; this will respin the remaining reels to give a second chance at landing the fifth scatter to get in to the free spins bonus.

Players can win up to 10,000x in the PowerLinks free spins round.  This feature is triggered by five or more scatters landing in view.  By triggering free spins, the player is awarded five free spins, with the triggering scatter symbols creating special reel zones.  If any additional scatter symbols land in the reel zones, the player can enjoy bigger prizes at the end of the free spins bonus.

Thunder of Thor is the second release from Jelly – hot on the heels of Savanna Roar – since joining the YG Masters programme.

The game is developed through Yggdrasil’s state-of-the-art GATI technology, which enables partners to employ the preconfigured, regulation-ready, standardised development toolkit to produce consistently cutting-edge content followed by rapid distribution.

Commenting on the new release, Stuart McCarthy, head of partner programs at Yggdrasil said: “Our latest collaboration with Jelly offers an exciting and immersive experience, steeped in Norse mythology. With the Thunder of Thor modifier offering huge win potential and a lucrative free spins mode, there’s plenty to look out for in this thrilling hit.” 

Victoria Newbolt, marketing lead at Jelly, said: “Through the YG Masters initiative we’re able to create bold, expressive games and deliver an electrifying experience.  Our latest game through the Masters program takes an iconic tale and we’ve added tonnes of fun on every spin.”
