Playtech Releases Call Of The Valkyries SlotHarry Coulter | 28 Aug 2018
Despite having faced tough times in everything from a loss of shareholders’ confidence to losing more than half of its value over the last year, Playtech, creator of online casino software and content, is obviously not ready to give up or let up. The company has pushing forward with relentless drive and has just released a brand new slot to boot.
The new Call of the Valkyries slot is rooted in Norse mythology, a theme that is every bit as popular among players as Egyptian-themed games. Three female players are engrossed in a quest to reach and enter the notorious Asgard-situated grand hall of Valhalla, and the journey is a rewarding one for players.
Keeping Up The Good Work
As is typical of Playtech’s titles, players are treated to everything from wilds to multipliers to impressive bonus features. The game contains all of the usual suspects that are the making of an entertaining title. A pick-me bonus round offering instant cash prizes, staked wild symbols, a double your money function – it’s all part of the superb mix of exciting in-game features.
Good News For A Change
The slot is compatible with all desktop and mobile operating systems and is perfect for that on-the-go bit of fun. The game was without a doubt designed in keeping with the quality that we have come to expect of the top-class developer.
It’s refreshing to see Playtech releasing new material, especially on the back of the many ups and downs experienced by the company in the global gaming market. Controversy has in many ways been the name of the game during the last couple of months, with the company making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
News pages have been reporting on everything from the fact that Playtech has lost half of its value over the last year, to the latest highly controversial act of having afforded CEO Alan Jackson a raise to the tune of €66,000 a year. Many analysts have described this as a gamble in itself, especially considering the fact that Jackson has been at the helm since 2013, and not much has been achieved in the way of turning the struggling ship around.
All things considered, the release of new quality content is a move in the right direction and may be just what the doctor ordered in terms of abolishing negative news headlines.
