Overall, we were blown away by this game and can’t recommend it enough. Read the rest of the review to find out more details.
Graphics and Theme
Just like the first Valley of the Gods game, the graphics and theme represent ancient Egypt and the deities that they used to worship. Either side of the reels you will see tall stone pillars with decorative, colourful hieroglyphs. The foreground is a sandy desert floor, and you can just make out the outline of the pyramids in the background which lets you know you are definitely in ancient Egypt. The reels are surrounded with a golden border, and the blocked reel positions are blocked with golden stones featuring a scarab emblem.
The soundtrack is a slow, repetitive middle eastern tune that will help you achieve a trance-like focus as you hit spin. It features traditional middle eastern instruments like the Oud, Nay, Qanun, and the Riq. It will make you feel like you’ve been transported back to ancient Egypt. When you hit spin, the music intensifies, and the reels rotate with a mechanical spinning noise. When you land a winning combination, there’s a wonderful celebration noise, and you’ll hear the coins clinking against each other as your winnings are added up.
Valley of the Gods 2 symbols
The low paying symbols in the game include the playing card symbols 9, 10, J, Q, K, and A. Six of a kind aces are worth 4x your stake and will pay out a maximum of £400. The high paying symbols are animal characters dressed as Egyptian gods. In order of value, these include a dog, an eagle, an alligator, and a cat. Six of a kind cat symbols will pay out a maximum of £1600 or 16x your stake. There is also a wild symbol that can substitute for any of the symbols. The unique thing about the wild symbol in this game is that it will always cover an entire reel.
Valley of the Gods 2 respins
Every symbol in a winning combination will release a scarab that destroys the stone blockers and creates more ways to win. So, if you create a winning combo with five symbols, five blockers will be destroyed to create five new reel positions. Once the blockers are removed, the reels will respin. This process continues until you no longer land a winning combo. When that happens, all blockers are put back in place.
Respins additional features- blue, red & gold scarabs
Once you have removed all the blocker stones, the scarabs released from winning combinations will be blue, red, or gold. These colours relate to the three power bars that sit to the left of the reels. If you collect five coloured scarabs, the corresponding power bar charges one level and gives you a bonus. Each power bar has five levels.
Blue Scarabs – Collect five blue scarabs to unlock an x2 multiplier that is applied to every consecutive win. For every additional five blue scarabs you collect on the consecutive wins you will get a +1 multiplier, up to a maximum of x6.
Red Scarabs – Collect five red scarabs to get an extra life. Lives will trigger an extra respin when you don’t land a winning combo. For every additional five red scarabs you collect, you will get +1 life, up to a maximum of five.
Gold Scarabs – Collect five golden scarabs to have the wild symbol take over one reel. Each additional five golden scarabs will give you an additional wild reel. The wilds stay with you on the respins until they are involved in a win.
