This slot by 1×2 Gaming was released at the end of November 2019. It lets you combine up to 5 maidens’ boosters during free spins. You will win from sticky and expanding wilds. There are transformations of other symbols into wilds. Extra free spins and an increase of the multiplier are also rewards from the five brave Viking fighters.
This is a video slot with 5 reels and 4 rows. There are 1,024 ways to win when matching 3 to 5 symbols landed from the leftmost reel to the right. Choose a wager from 0.20 to 20 credits to spin the reels on all kinds of devices. Each of the maiden warriors in the game has a special power.
When they combine, this can lead to up to 1,250x stake per spin or £25 000, which is the jackpot in the game. The game has an RTP of 96% and medium volatility. Players have the option to buy the bonus round if they wish to.
Then, you can choose 3 of the 5 maidens and will win from their special powers. These include a progressively increasing multiplier, expanding and sticky wilds. Others are wild transformations and extra free spins.
On the background, there a Viking ship and a church. The colours on the screen are dark and muted in the brown and purple colour tones. On both sides of the grid, you will see a thin dragon. The reels are semi-transparent and framed.
On the playing area, you will see card symbols, helmets, axes, swords and horns. The most attractively designed and colourful symbols are the 5 female Vikings. The free spins you will play over a wooden bridge in a different setting. The design of the slot is in Norse style that looks good.
The low-value symbols are the J to A cards and they return from 2x to 4x stake for 5 identical in a winning combination. The helmet, horn and 2 battle axes have the same values – up to 25x stake for 5 of a kind. You will receive more from the golden shield. Land 5 of it on adjacent positions from left to right to pocket 50 times your stake. The red shield will reward you with a 75x stake for 5 symbols.
The top-paying of all is the blue shield and sword – land 5 to get 250 times your stake. The Viking warriors are all scatters, while the game logo is the wild. The latter plays the role of all others and appears on reels 2 to 5 only.
The 5 battle maidens are all scatters and each one lands on its reel only. Having Norse names, these are Hellevi on reel 1, Eldfrid on reel 2, Alfhild on reel 3, Snefrid on reel 4 and Solvej on reel 5. You have to land 3 or more of these scatters in one spin to trigger 10 free spins. During them, the triggering scatters and any extra ones apply their modifying powers. This happens as follows:
If you don’t want to wait to activate the free spins yourself, you can use the buy feature. You will choose 3 of the maidens to benefit from their boosting powers. The price of the buy bonus depends on the maidens you choose. Snefrid gives you very good chances for massive wins!
The Viking theme is used in slots frequently but in Battle Maidens, the theme is somehow fresh and unique. The female battle warriors stand out as they can combine their powers. This ensures you much better chances for wins. This medium volatile slot offers a top payout of 1,250x stake per spin, which is not bad.
