If you love the thrilling and gripping story of Vikings, you will love playing every minute of this game! NetEnt brings the popular serious Vikings to your screens, focusing on the exploits of real-life Vikings Ragnar Lothbrok, his wife Lagertha, his son Bjorn, and his right-hand man Floki. From the moment you start playing, you will feel like you’re watching an episode of the television show, as the reels are set against a gloomy Norse landscape in the middle of winter, with the dark shadows of imposing mountains sloping down towards an icy lake. Of course, a watchful raven in on the side of your screen, watching your progression!
The Vikings slot is a fun and engaging game, with many chances to win because there are no pay lines! The setup of the game has a 5×3 reel, which means that there are 243 ways where you can win if 3 or more identical symbols fall upon the reels. However, if Odin smiles upon you and you’re lucky enough to hit the 30 free spins feature, the reels expand to a 7x 5 setup, which means that there are 78, 125 ways for you to win!
Since this is the official game sanctioned by HBO, you will love seeing the images of Ragnar and his Vikings playing across your screen, from the beautiful Lagertha to the wily and cunning Floki. It is available to play on all devices, so you can go on Viking raids anytime, whether you’re on your desktop, mobile, or tablet. The quality of the game is the same on all devices: smooth, fast, and fun to play!
The game itself has a rugged and exciting atmosphere where you’re not quite sure what will happen next, just like the television series! Vikings slot has a set of 10 symbols: 5 are high-value symbols (4 are characters from the show, and the 5th is the Vikings logo), while the other 5 are low-value symbols (represented by K, Q, J, 10, and A) and they are given a Viking look by being made from bloody steel. The high-value symbols come out as stacked in both the main game and the free spins feature. However, there is no Wild symbol in the game. The game has two interesting and fun extra features: hotspot and shield wall. The hotspot feature is symbolized by an electric current running through the third reel. When this feature is activated, if a stacked Viking symbol appears in the 3rd reel and fully covers it, it will transform all the other Viking symbols in the other reels into that particular symbol, giving a chance for a great payout. The other feature is the Shield wall, which is triggered randomly in both the main game and the free spins game. During the Shield wall feature, a cluster of 3×2 or 5×2 mystery shield symbols will appear on random areas of the reel, which will then reveal a premium Viking symbol to allow better chances of big wins! However, the shield wall feature will not activate during the hotspot feature.
The free spins feature on the Vikings slot game is pretty impressive: you will get seven free spins if you get scatter symbols on reels 3, 4, and 5. The reel expands to a 7×5 setup, allowing you to win in a massive 78, 125 ways! Should the Hotspot feature activate during this time, it covers the three middle reels! If you’re truly blessed by the gods, you can win as much as 10,000 times your bet during the 20 free bonus spins with the Hotspot feature.
When you consider how much time, attention to detail and care went into the development and making of this game, it’s not surprising to see why it’s fast becoming one of NetEnt’s most popular games! It gives you a great storyline, amazing graphics, and great gameplay, and the chances of getting a big payout with the main game and the additional features are significant.
