A harrowing forest scene with illuminated stone murals is the backdrop to an intricate game window. The three protectors feature prominently on the reels while a heroic soundtrack provides that extra suspense element. A horizontal reel on top of the game window will spin in each round a blank or either a white, a blue or a red moon into view.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card royals from 9 to A, paying 0.5x your stake for a five of a kind. On the medium level are fantasy mushrooms and blue flowers. Hit five across the reels to win 1x to 1.15x your bet. The premium symbols are the three protectors – the eagle warrior, the bear warrior and the female wolf warrior. A single five of a kind will award 1.25x to 1.5x your stake. There are no wilds on the reels, however, an intricate icon with a snowy mountain range acts as the scatter.

Electric Elephant is a little known studio based in London, UK, that was previously named Seven Deuce Gaming. While staying off the radar since their founding in 2015, recent partnerships with Microgaming, Leander and Relax has seen them supplying slot games to the respective platforms. Space Spins was the debut on Microgaming’s Quickfire platform while Völsunga is their first creation for Relax Gaming and is in our opinion the best what we have seen so far from the young studio. Decent graphics and some novelties in the gameplay coupled with big win potential should draw punters in for a spin.
