With a transparent grid consisting of 6 reels placed inside an ice cave, Arctic Valor oozes a Nordic fairytale feel. Tiny snowflakes add to the visual appeal, together with the Northern lights reflecting through the ice above. Graphics do need some polishing as they are not quite on par with top-notch slot games we get from big-name developers but we’re sure Crazy Tooth Studio will continue to learn and get better with every try.
It would appear we are giving this young studio a hard time but it’s not the case. That said, here comes the first thing we’re impressed with when it comes to Arctic Valor slot. This 6 reel game does not include a standard paying system (usually starting from the leftmost reel) but instead works on the Adjacent Pays mechanics. This basically allows you to get winning combinations for at least three matching symbols on any adjacent three reels. For example, getting same symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 equals a win!
Crazy Tooth Studio and Microgaming have made this slot a game for the masses with their betting range which starts at €0.15 and goes up to €15. It’s not an expensive game and as such will give a wide audience a good chance to test it properly.
Symbols in Arctic Valor game include four different ladies resembling some Norse forest fairies. Adding to the list of these high value symbols, there is a set of weaponry – including swords or bow and arrows – but also a red, purple and blue snowflake. Wild logo is substituting for all symbols while the Scatter triggers the special bonus.
Icicle Feature – triggered randomly on any given spin, this particular feature will see one or more icicles fall onto the reels. they will land on 1, 2 or three symbols eachach to reveal cash prizes of add Wild symbols to boost your chances of winning.
Arctic Valor Bonus – triggered by landing three or more Scatters, this bonus will reward you with bonus spins. Each of these bonus spins will trigger the icicle feature which will allow you to get fully stacked reels which will remain sticky throughout the bonus.
Arctic Valor can freely be considered a debut game by the Crazy Tooth Studio which is making its mark within the big boys’ league. It might not be the bow some of you would hope for as Arctic Valor slot is hardly a match for any game produced by industry’s giants such as NetEnt, Quickspin or Yggdrasil.
It still deserves a round of applause, together with Microgaming for constantly providing small(er) studios with an opportunity to make their big break. Arctic Valor is an interesting product featuring 6 reels and an innovative adjacent pays system which will see you land wins for at least three symbols next to each other anywhere on the grid.
As for the bonus features, this medium volatility game has two. Icicles dropping down to fill up to three spaces on a reel with Wilds or cash prizes and a bonus round during which you get complimentary spins and fully stacked – and sticky – reels for big wins.
