Two really good special features
We mentioned that Vikings have good special functions. Here is little more info about them:
- Shield Wall: At any time, after you spin the reels without winning, shields may appear on the board. They give winnings in clusters and the more you see, the more you win. They appear as either 3×2 clusters, or as 5×2.
- Hotspot Feature: In the basic game you see a frame around the reel in the middle. If one of the Vikings fills this reel completely, all other Vikings on the playing field will be changed to the same Viking. You will then receive a scatter win. This means that they do not have to be on a payline to give you cash.
Raid Spins - Viking Freespins
You start free spins by getting at least 3 shields with “Raid Spins” on. You then get 7 free spins in Vikings where you now get to see a completely different slot. The reels expand and you now have 78 125 pay lines. In addition, you have three hotspots instead of one. This means that you can win a lot of money here in a single spin. You only need one hotspot filled for all other Vikings to change shape and with so many symbols in place, it can literally pour money over you.
Graphics & Sound
When Vikings launches, you see that this is much more than just a regular slot machine online. The intro film sets a mood directly and you feel right away that it is a world filled of war and darkness. The symbols, consisting of 10, J, Q, K, and A for the low winnings and different Vikings for higher wins, are incredibly neatly made.
Also the sound is well done and together with the graphics, and the mechanics behind the game, it gives us a slot that impresses. Vikings is very well made and it is no wonder that many players give it a top score after they have tested it.
NetEnt is one of the best software providers on the market and it is clear that they know what they are doing. Vikings is a well-made game that contains both good features, a great atmosphere and lots of entertainment. RTP is 96.05% which is quite normal for a slot, and volatility is low to medium-high. Vikings is suited for all players who love the series on TV, everyone who likes Vikings in general and everyone who likes slots where things happen often.
