The game’s theme is set in the pretty cold yet appealing Norwegian land. From the look of things, dusk has just fallen on the chilly seashore and misty hills hold plenty of menaces. But this is when things are getting heated for the Vikings. They creep under the mist and launch their offensive attacks on their enemies. And it’s up to you to help them win in order to receive those Super Big Wins!
NetEnt is a company to reckon with in the industry. This is evident in the immaculately designed graphics that will leave you stunned. Also, the sleek animation showcased in the game will make you want to step into the shoes of these Norse heroes and inflict pain into your enemies during the raid bonus game for more wins.
To ensure the game is as pleasing to the ears, just as it is to the eye, the Norsemen’s exploits are accompanied by the majestic music injected with a crow’s eerie croaks. It perfectly adds to the atmosphere and allows you to relive the Vikings raid in the present time.
As far as the symbols are concerned, unsurprisingly, you will come across the chieftain Ragnar Lothbrok himself and his beautiful wife Lagertha. These two legends are accompanied with other members of this renowned family, such as Floki and Bjorn. They all are the high-paying symbols which can appear stacked on the reels.
However, the symbol that carries the most weight in the game is the “V” logo. Land 5 “V” symbols on the reels to get a 2.5x multiplier on your bet.
In addition, absolutely fantastically, when the reels expand in the feature of raid freebies, you can achieve 7-of-a-kind combos. This results in astronomical wins. For instance, a 7 “V” symbols combination yields 3.5x your bet.
The Hotspot Feature
In NetEnt’s Vikings Slot, Reel 3 is the hot spot. This means that if you land any of the Norse heroes stacked on this reel, the rest of the Vikings on the reels turn into this particular hero. This results in bigger and better wins! What is more, when the raid spins round kicks in, the Hotspot feature covers not only reel 3, but also 4 and 5. This results in a chance to receive a 10,000x multiplier on your bet.
The Shield Wall Feature
Lagertha is the only person with the ability to call for a wall made of shields. It appears clustered and will be transformed into a prime symbol chosen randomly. This feature can spring to life during the base game and during the freebies session alike.
The Raid Freebies
As you long as you land at least three scatter symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5, you automatically trigger a 7 raid spins bonus game. Although the freebies cannot be retriggered, the free spins round is still equipped with huge winning potential.
During the game, reels expand to reach a 7×5 layout with 78125 exclusive ways of forming winning combinations. Moreover, 7 free spins come hand in hand with an upgraded hotspot feature. What we mean here is that 2 more hot spots are added – reels 4 and 5 (unlike the only hot spot in the main game – reel 3). As we have already mentioned, it translates into up to 10,000 your bet on a single spin!
The medium to high variance Vikings slot game is undoubtedly the cream of the crop in its class. It’s a game that gracefully straddles immaculacy of the visuals and faithfulness to the authenticity of the celebrated story. It also comes with the potential of forming massive winnings during the raid freebies and scatter-pay game. After all, 10,000x the wager is something each player could do with!
If Ragnar Lothbrok is your hero, if you like hot action, fascination, and myriad opportunities to fulfill your winning aspirations, this game is as right as rain for you!
