Gameplay

Vikings slot game immediately sets the tone as it displays a harsh, frosty and ominous environment. The lower paying symbols appear on the reels as iron rune-like symbols with blood stains. As you would expect, the main characters of the series, Ragnar Lothbrok, Lagertha, Floki and Bjorn, can be seen on the reels, as well as the Vikings’ logo which is the highest-paying symbol. A few originally named special features give this slot game significant depth and plenty of chances to hit big winnings.

Special Features

Hotspot feature

This feature is located on the middle reel and draws your attention as its constantly emits a glowing light. When an icon of one of the main characters covers each row of the third reel as a stacked symbol, all other Vikings characters on the reels transform into that stacked symbol activating the Scatter Pays feature, which significantly increases your win.

Scatter Pays

The Scatter Pays feature is triggered when a stacked Viking symbol appears on the Hotspot reel. The stacked Viking symbol will transform all other Viking icons to the same character as the stacked symbol appearing on the Hotspot reel. This feature can award you up to 200,000 coins.

Shield Wall Bonus Game

The Shield Wall feature is taken directly from the TV show and is a historically accurate military tactic that was used in early Medieval warfare. This feature is randomly activated in the main game as well as in Free Spins mode and covers a 3×2 or 5×2 portion of the reels with Viking shields while arrows fly across the reels to pierce the shields. These Viking shield symbols function as expanding wilds as they substitute symbols to give you the highest paying win possible. The winning combination will be revealed once the shield wall breaks.

Raid Spins

Raid Spins are free spins Viking style and to activate this mode you need to play at least 3 Raid Spin symbols on the reels in one round. Once this mode is triggered you are transported to the Raid Reel, which has a 7×5 grid structure. You are awarded 7 Free Spins in this mode and the Raid Reels has hotspots on the third, fourth and fifth reels. If you play a stacked symbol on any of these centre reels you give your winnings a boost.
