Based on the classic TV show Vikings; the Vikings slot game takes place on the high seas during a snow storm. The game includes the main characters, as they appear as both stacked and regular symbols on the reels.
The main game has 5 reels and 243 ways to win, although that increases during the Raid Spins feature. There are also randomly triggered features and a “Hotspot” that can transform all Vikings into matching symbols.

The jackpot in the main game is nothing to get too excited about. The blood splattered “V” is the highest valued symbol with a top payout of just 70 coins when you get 7 symbols along a winning payline.
However, during the Scatter Pays bonus feature, there is a top jackpot of 200,000 times your bet. To win this big jackpot you will need to have all symbols on the board matching a single Viking.
To get started playing Vikings you’ll first have to set your bet. In this casino game there are two things to consider. First, the coin size that you want to use, you’ll have the choice between 6 coins; 1p, 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p, or 50p. Then you can set a bet level, which is how many of those coins that you want to play with. One final thing to note, is that any bet requires a minimum of 20 coins, which means that the minimum bet is 20p, even when you use the 1p coin. The maximum bet, with the bet level set to 10 and using a 50p coin is £100.
Fans of the TV show will immediately recognize the high value symbols as the main characters in the Vikings show; Floki, Bjorn, Lagertha and Ragnar. They can all appear as stacked symbols or single symbols with just the characters face.
There are a few bonus features that not only add to the potential excitement with every spin, but can increase the odds of winning.
The middle reel is a “Hotspot” reel, and when a fully stacked Viking symbol lands there it will trigger Scatter Pays feature. This will transform any other Viking symbol on the board into the same Viking on the middle reel, and the payout will occur regardless of where the symbols are on the board.
The Shield Wall feature occurs at random; a cluster of shields protect the reels from enemy arrows. When the shields are removed, all symbols that were under them are transformed to matching mystery symbols, and then all wins are counted.
The final feature is the Raid Spins feature. This is triggered when there are Raid Spin symbols on reels 3, 4, and 5. You will receive 7 bonus spins and the reels expand to 7 reels and an amazing 78,125 ways to win. The Shield Wall and Scatter Pays features are both active, and with so many additional symbols on the reels the payouts increase as well.
