Play’n GO has released a new slot machine called Faces of Freya, which is themed after the Norse goddess Freyja. The game’s focus on a female icon rather than the more stereotypical male ones like Odin, Thor, and Loki is a welcome change. It’s refreshing to see that the slot hasn’t been made excessively feminine because Freya is the lead character. Anyone may enjoy this slot game, and those with a penchant for Norse mythology will find even more to love.
Freya’s Many Masks: The Structure
This slot machine has five reels and three rows. It features a stunningly animated natural backdrop and offers 20 different opportunities to win on every spin. If you pay attention, you may see birds soaring over the lake in the distance and the grass moving in the breeze. Wearing headphones when playing on a mobile device improves the experience greatly, as the accompanying orchestral score rapidly develops an appropriately evocative mood.
Semitransparent reels feature regular symbols like a shield and an axe, a wild boar, a big cat, and a torc, as well as four Nordic motifs engraved in different colored chunks of rock. Freya acts as both a wild and a scatter, while her Brisingamen necklace is the most valuable sign of all. All of these icons are beautifully rendered, and when they contribute to a winning combination, they’ll be brought to the fore with a subtle but noticeable animation.
Magical, Romantic, and Military Spinning
If you are lucky enough to get three Spins of Sorcery, Love, and War scatter symbols anywhere on the reels at the same moment, the bonus round will begin. There are three possible variations on the Free Spins feature, as the name says; which one you get is entirely at chance.
The Shield and Axe, Wild Boar, Large Cat, or Torc are just few of the possible symbols that could be chosen at random by the sorcerer. The newly picked symbol will replace all lower-value symbols immediately.
For a maximum of one wild per reel, love can bring anywhere from two to five wilds to the game.
Every win you get during the War feature will be multiplied by 2, 3, 5, or 10 times.
You will receive six free games regardless of how many Scatters you get, with one additional free game added for each additional Scatter.
The Folkvang Highlight
Freya’s field of war is called Folkvang, and it is activated when you get four or five scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. Here, you’ll be treated to unique Folkvang renditions of Sorcery, Love, and War, all in quick succession, before wrapping things off with a Finale round.
This thrilling bonus game has multiple levels and the potential to award payouts of up to 5,000 times the initial wager.
Diversity Improves Performance
“Variety is imperative in this industry because players need to be stimulated,” stated Martin Zettergen, CPO of Play’n GO. Despite having a plethora of contemporary resources at their disposal, many nevertheless rely on outdated tropes and notions. We try to provide players a new experience in a medium they already enjoy by providing a wide range of tales and features, such as basing this game on a relatively obscure figure.
Explore Freya’s Action-Packed Odyssey
What Martin Zettergen means is not lost on us. Reviewers of slot machines have seen more than their fair share of Norse mythology-themed games. Forgive the Thor pun, but even though many of them are excellent, they often repeat the same tired tropes. Faces of Freya is not only unique in this regard, but it is also a very well-made and robust slot in its own right. Have fun out there!
