The name of that first game, coming from Crazy Tooth Studio and designed exclusively for Microgaming, is Arctic Valor. This is a 6-reel game, one which incorporates a total of 4096 ways to win. In this game, there are four Valkyries being summoned, so as you can guess, the theme is one with a mythology angle to it. You follow these warriors as they go into battle, with frozen tundras as a setting and with blizzards going on all around them.
A combination of snowflakes which come in different colors, along with powerful weapons, are the game’s symbols. There are depictions of the Valkyries as well, and if you get them stacked, there are some cool animations as well.
The ice-like feel comes from the features as well, one example being Falling Icicle, which has icicles at the top of the reels. One or more may drop on the reels at any point, so this is a randomly occurring feature, with up to three symbols covered as a result. As you shatter these icicles, you find out what kind of prizes are hidden underneath. Wilds may also be offered this way.
The game has Bonus Free Spins to give as well, and the access to these is obtained via 3+ scatters. Icicles are going to trigger often in this feature, coming on the reels during every single free spin (there are 7 rounds available). Should a stacked Valkyrie symbol be fully visible, the icicles above them can become bigger.
Arctic Valor has become available to operators of Microgaming’s platform, since February 20, and it can be played on mobile and desktop platforms.
Ben Hoffman, speaking as the President of Crazy Tooth Studio, mentioned that the company is excited about working together with Microgaming. The company already has an excellent game portfolio and a big position in the market, and thanks to their long list of operators, Crazy Tooth will be able to diversify their capabilities and deliver games to a larger audience.
From Microgaming, David Reynolds mentioned some of the pros of Arctic Valor, such as the stunning graphics, the Nordic atmosphere or the use of 4096 ways to win.
