Whether or not you’re a fan of the hit series Vikings, this slot based on the show has a lot going for it and provides a tremendous amount of entertainment. We’ve already carried out a raid of spins on this slot and in this review, you can find out exactly what features and highlights make this slot so special.
Vikings is a NetEnt powered 5 to 7 reel slot game, comes packed with in-between 243 and 78,125 ways to win. Playable from £0.20 to £100 per spin across, there’s plenty leeway between the amount you want to stake each spin. As with most other NetEnt games, you’re also able to adjust the level and coin value with which you want to play. This doesn’t have an effect on the spin outcomes, but rather gives you a chance to customise how much you want to bet.
Just like their other games such as Starburst and Gonzo’s Quest, this is a truly superb looking slot. Right from the moment Vikings launches and loads, it already feels like an extension to the series, with fantastic graphics being accompanied by an epic soundtrack. It might not be a real battle you’re lining up to fight, but the beating of the war drums certainly help to build the anticipation and energy, all before you’ve even spun. All this really helps to make this slot instantly stand out and helps capture your attention.
The symbols found in Vikings are what you’d most likely expect to see from the show. The characters Floki, Bjorn, Lagertha, and Ragnar all appear, with each taking up the size of a whole reel, if allowed to be selected in full during a spin. Other symbols include the blood splattered suits of cards, a bleeding Vikings symbol and the Raid Spins shields that will trigger a free spins round if enough of them appear in one spin.
In the main game, a Hotspot zone covers the entirety of the middle (3rd) reel. When a fully stacked Viking symbol lands completely in the Hotspot area, all other Viking symbols in the play area outside of the Hotspot are transformed into the Viking symbol that landed in the Hotspot area. Any of the 4 symbols with a face on it is a Viking symbol. Both single Viking symbols and stacked Viking symbols on the reels are transformed when the Hotspot Feature is activated.
When a fully stacked Viking symbol lands completely in the Hotspot, Scatter Pays is activated. After the characters have transformed into the same Viking symbol, the eventual amount won is then determined.
Every Raid Spin symbol that your land will provide some dramatic effects. Appearing as a shield, each one that appears will receive a barrage of arrows. The more of them you land, the more a blood effect starts to squirt from beneath the shield. If you manage to get 3 of the arrowed symbols in one spin, you enter the Raid Spins round.
In Raid Spins, the game transforms into a 7-reel, 5-row, and 78,125 betways playing area. Seven Raid Spins are awarded, with 3 Hotspots on reels 3, 4, and 5. When a fully stacked Viking symbol lands completely in one or more of the Hotspot areas, all other Viking symbols in the play area outside of the Hotspots and inside the Hotspots are transformed into the same Viking symbol that landed fully stacked in the Hotspot area.
Shield Wall Feature
In both the main game and in Raid Spins, the Shield Wall appears as a cluster of mystery symbols that appear on random areas of the reels. The wall then transforms into a randomly chosen symbol. The Shield Wall, not only helps to add extra drama to the game, but it also helps to keep more coins flowing your way whilst you’re waiting for another chance to go on a Raid Spins round.
