Within the base game, towers appearing on reels one, two and three, trigger a row expansion, with players offered a bonus feature for repeating the behaviour when they have progressed to grid. They will then have a choice to take the feature or reject it for a further offer later. 

Whenever at least one tower appears in the active grid, on each reel that has tower symbols, play progresses to the next stage. Each adds one additional two and 10 extra paylines. 

Stage progression continues in a similar fashion until there are five reels and eight rows in play. At the end of the free spins, or when a free spin feature is rejected, the Stage Play is reset. 

With four separate bonus game free spins modes – Valkyrie, Loki, Thor and Odin; there are numerous options for players to win big. In the most lucrative – Odin free spins, towers may appear on all reels offering huge win potential.

Within the Valkyrie free spins mode, the player is awarded seven free spins, during which a prize multiplier may occur on any win. In addition, one extra free spin is awarded whenever at least one tower appears in the active grid on each of reels one, two and three. 

Alternatively, in the Loki version, again, seven free spins are awarded yet a prize multiplier is guaranteed to occur on any win. Moreover, in the Thor variation towers may appear on reels one, two, three and four.

In certain jurisdictions free spins are also available to purchase, with players able to select their buy-in level for enhanced chances at triggering the optimal bonus mode.


Stuart McCarthy, head of product and programmes at Yggdrasil, said: “Towering Pays Valhalla sees a brand-new mechanic brought to our YG Masters program with an iconic theme beloved by slot players everywhere.

“The YG Masters program was devised to bring innovation and excitement to players from studios everywhere, and we’re thrilled to be able to launch this new hit.”

David Johnson, CEO of ReelPlay, explained: “We’re delighted to help bring to market Games Lab’s latest Towering Pays game with our partners at Yggdrasil. 

“Valhalla is a game that develops over spins with its increasing reel matrix and multiple feature offerings, and builds on Games Lab’s recent successful launches via YG Masters such as Royal Dragon Infinity Reels.”
