Based on the hit TV show of the same name, NetEnt presents you with the official Vikings slot, featuring fully licensed visuals of all your favourite characters. As seen on the History Channel and Amazon Prime Video, this highly popular series has now turned its hand to the world of online slots, with a standard 3x5 reel set-up that can expand into seven if you’re lucky enough. The Vikings slot RTP is 96.05% and you can spin from as little as 20p.
Visually, as you would expect from a NetEnt game, this is a beautiful looking video slot, not to mention it is complete with the likenesses of all the main characters from the show. Your symbols revolve primarily around these main characters: Floki, Bjorn, Lagertha & Ragnar; however, you do have the standard card values, finished like the blood-stained steel the characters use in the show, as well as your shield scatters and other bonus symbols to fill out the board.
As well as each having crisp and clean animations, with highly realistic graphics and artwork, one of the standout aspects is the impressive lighting.
Another aspect worth noting is the deeply layered gameplay, showcasing plenty of bonus features, including one that potentially offers up to 78,125 ways to win, thanks to the additional reels that can be opened up. As mentioned, the standard board starts with three rows and five reels, which themselves offer a healthy 243 betways; however, should you trigger the correct bonus feature, you will unlock a new board where you can capitalise on all those extra paylines.
This, among other fantastic features, makes Vikings a hugely exciting and varied slot that is worth coming back to – not to mention it is well optimised for mobile gameplay as well, meaning you can embark on your next Viking adventure even whilst you’re on the go.
You have three main bonuses in this game and each one packs a punch. Here's how they work…
This feature is triggered when one of the main character symbols is fully stacked/fills the hotspot: reel three. Once triggered it turns all the other Viking symbols into that character, meaning you can increase your winnings.
As mentioned, your scatter symbols for this slot are wooden shields, which can also trigger a random feature where a cluster of mystery symbols appear somewhere on the reels. These will all then transform into one symbol, so finger crossed it’s a valuable one!
Lastly, you have the most fruitful feature, Raid Spins, which is what expands the game over seven reels and five rows. These additional betways increase the total amount of payline to a whopping 78,125 and is triggered by landing 3 of the Raid symbols, earning you seven spins and activating three hotspots. In addition to this, the Shield Wall feature can also be accessed during these spins as well, hence why there are so many wins up for grabs.
So, how do you play this thing? Like any other 3x5 slot, the aim is simple: many three or more symbols to create a winning combination – this is the same in 7-reel setup too, which is why there are so many possible ways to win.
In terms of interface, NetEnt is always a reliable provider: all of your controls are located along the bottom of the screen and are clearly displayed. To left, you have your buttons for adjusting your bet level; to the right, you will find the same for adjusting your coin value. Your main spin button is located in the centre and you will find your max bet and autoplay functions on either side.
Lastly, the only other icon you may need is the information button, which will provide you with a full paytable and a full list of rules should you need them. Other than that, once you are happy with your total stake, you should be about ready to play. So, ready the longboats and let’s prepare to set sail!
