Try not to be dazzled and thrown out of your game by the cinematic intro welcoming you into a Viking’s shelter and through to one of the most beautiful views you will have ever encountered.
As it slowly starts to snow you are invited to adjust your game set-up, choose the bet level (from 1 to 10) and determine the coin value (€0.01 to €0.50). A Max Bet button will help you cut to the chase while you can also determine the number of automated spins (10, 25 or 50) if you want to sit back and enjoy this high-quality action.
Vikings pays for at least three matching symbols on any of the 243 winning lines. Chances of landing bigger wins become even higher when the actual playing set increases from 5×3 to 7×5 with an astonishing 78,125 winning ways. But more on that further below.
When it comes to game symbols, there are ten of them in total. Five low-value ones are represented through classic playing card symbols from 10 to A, whereas the remaining set of symbols is entirely branded. Different series characters – Floki, Bjorn, Lagertha and Ragnar himself – along with the notorious V sign which is the most rewarding symbol complete the offering.
NetEnt did its best to create the most fitting representation of the popular TV show and it’s fair to say the company did it. Coming from Sweden originally, NetEnt has surely been specially motivated to honour this popular programme through a brave wealth of exciting and rewarding features.
Hotspot Feature – the action starts when a fully stacked Viking – any of the brave four – appears fully stacked in a middle reel Hotspot. This will see all other Viking symbol transform into that same character to boost your chance of landing a win.
Shield Wall Feature – available both in the main game and during Raid Spins (more on those below), this particular feature appears as a cluster of hidden, mystery symbols. The cluster will appear in a randomly selected area to transform all symbols beneath the shields into a single symbol, thus boosting your win potential.
Raid Spins Feature – raid spins symbols can be considered Scatters. Three of these anywhere on reels will push the reel set from 5×3 to a whopping 7×5 with no less than 78,125 winning ways. What’s more, you will be given 7 raid spins (free spins, anybody?) but that’s not all. Reels 3, 4 and 5 will be fitted with three Hotspots where a fully stacked Viking will – as stated above – transform all other Vikings on reels into one and the same character. What you can hope to achieve in this particular feature is a whopping win worth 10,000x your stake on each raid spin. Insane, right?
A popular series such as Vikings got what it wholeheartedly deserves in this online slot rendition proudly presented by NetEnt. The company is not called the Swedish slot specialist for nothing as evident from the first moment you load the screen of this 5×3, medium to high variance game.
In addition to absolutely enchanting cinematic graphics and high-definition graphics that throw you straight into the snowy Norwegian fields, Vikings slot game bursts with adventure thanks to three engrossing features.
The action starts through game’s hotspots which turn all Vikings into one character. Shield Wall feature is there to throw clusters of randomly selected symbols to your reel, while Raid Spins combine both of these in an increased game set and an increased war chest worth mammoth 10,000x your bet.
