Vikings Slot

Every online casino software provider creates online slots on a range of themes and some of the most appealing slots around are the ones that are themed on blockbuster movies and TV series from Hollywood. 

NetEnt’s latest release, Vikings, is a very good example of the Hollywood slots you get in the market today. NetEnt is known for putting out movie and TV series-themed slots, and Vikings is probably one of its finest in this category.

The game has everything that players crave for – a great theme, high quality graphics and animations that are almost real life, a sound track to die for and some amazing bonuses to help you win more often and bigger. The game has 5 reels and 20 paylines, and offers 243 different ways to win.

Vikings is a brand new slot – it was released just 3 days ago on 22nd November, 2018 – and already there are South African online casinos offering it to their players. These include casinos like Yako Casino and Yeti Casino. You also get to play this game at casinos like Sloty Casino.

Vikings has all the ingredients of a blockbuster, much like the hit HBO TV series it is based on. The graphics and animations are of the highest quality and the background is of a typical nightscape in Norway, the land of the Vikings. The main symbols are from the TV series – you get to see Ragnar Lothbrok, Lagertha, Floki and Bjorn. The other symbols include the Raid Spins symbol, the V symbol and 10 to Ace from a regular deck of cards.

There are a number of cool bonus features in Vikings. The first is the Hotspot feature, which appears on Reel 3 in the base game. When a fully stacked Viking symbol lands on the Hotspot area, it converts all other Viking symbols across the reels to itself, giving you a good shot at some amazing wins.

The Scatter Pays feature is activated during the Hotspot feature when a fully stacked wild lands on a Hotspot during the base game. The Viking symbols across the reels are transformed into the stacked Viking symbol, as mentioned earlier. Based on the symbols and the number landed, Scatter Pays are offered, anywhere between 6 and 200,000 coins depending on the number of Viking symbols on the reels, anywhere between 3 and 27 symbols.

Another exciting bonus feature is the Shield Wall feature. It is triggered at random in the bonus game and also the base game. A clutch of symbols appear on the reels at random and group together. You get paid depending on the number of symbols and the symbol positions.

The most interesting of them all is the Raid Spins feature. It is activated when you land 3 Raid Spins symbols on reels 3, 4 and 5. You get 7 Raid Spins when that happens. That is just the regular part of this amazing bonus: the game itself metamorphoses into a 7-reel affair with the symbols arranged in 5 rows and gives you 78,125 different ways to win.

To add to the excitement, should you land a fully stacked Viking symbols on one of the hotspot areas on reels 3, 4 and 5 during the Raid Spins feature the Hotspot feature gets activated. All the Viking symbols get converted to the fully stacked Viking symbol to give you more chances at wins.

Playing Vikings is simple and a whole different level of fun. Once the game loads on your screen, choose your coin size to determine your bet. The coin size varies between 0.01 and 5.00, which gives you a bet size of 0.20 to 100.00, given that you can place bets up to 10 levels. To increase the bet size click the ‘+’ to the right of the coin value. To decrease it click the ‘-‘ button to the left of the coin value.

You can use the Autoplay button to the left of the Spin button to play in automatic mode, from 10 spins to 1000 spins. The Max Bet button to the right of the Spin button allows you to place the maximum bet directly at one go.
