Vikings Slot Review – Chips Top Picks
Chipmonkz plays a big variety of games on his streams. There can be special stream days dedicated to low stakes, slot battles and even some singular provider only sessions. With so many games requested and new games being released it can be hard to choose what to play. So Chip has managed to compile a list of his favorite top 10 slot games. Number 8 was ‘Reactoonz‘ which is a love-hate relationship. Coming in at number 7 is ‘Vikings‘ by provider NetEnt. The provider recently released their festive game ‘Santa Vs Rudolf‘ for 2019 and sequel ‘Reel Rush 2‘.
The game Vikings is actually based on the tv show Vikings. The show first started in 2013 and is currently still running on season 6. This show can be watched on prime video. It has a 91% rating from rotten tomatoes and very popular in America. In the background are a snowy setting of the sea and surrounding mountains in the fog. On the left is a flag with a skull on top and a fence with a shield against it and a crow on top. There are simple animations of snow and the crow moving slightly. Overall I think the visuals for the game are superb and capture the series well.
Vikings has a classic setup of 5 reels by 3 rows, this includes 243 ways to win. This game is high variance due to the max win capped at 10,000x per spin and set RTP of 96.05%. You can bet from £0.20 – £100.
Vikings Slot Review Paytable & Symbols
This game has 12 symbols in total, this includes 5 low paying symbols. These are represented by 10, J, Q, K, and A. These symbols are silver with blood splatters. There are also 5 premium symbols, these are represented by 4 character symbols with a different vibrant colour. Also a golden Vikings logo symbol. Premium symbols appear as singular and 3 symbols down stacked on the reel set. This excludes the golden logo symbol. There is also a scatter symbol which is a shield. The highest paying symbol is the golden logo symbol, this symbol pays around 58x for 7.
Vikings Slot Review Features
There are two features in the base game to look out for. The first is ‘Shield Wall Feature‘, this is active in both the base game and raid spins feature. The shield wall appears as a cluster of mystery symbols and will trigger on any spin in any area on the reel set. Once it appears the shields will reveal the symbol and wins will be awarded.
The second feature is the ‘Hotspot Feature’, the hot spot is reel 3 in the base game. When a fully stacked Viking symbol lands in the hot spot area completely the feature will trigger. All other Vikings symbols on the reels will transform into the Viking symbol in the hot spot.
Vikings Raid Spins
Central to this game is the ‘Raid Spins’, this is activated when you land 3 scatters on reels 3,4 and 5. This will award 7 raid spins, this feature is played on a new 7 reels by 5-row reel set with 78,125 bet ways. There are 3 hot spots on this new reel set, on reels 3,4 and 5. The hot spot feature is active like in the base game. The feature will trigger when a fully stacked Viking symbols land completely in one of the hot spots. All other Viking symbols are transformed into the Viking symbol in the hot spot. You can win up to 10,000x per spin in this feature.
Overall, this game is also on my own top 10 list. This game is one of the most volatile slots to be released by NetEnt. The provider did a fantastic job creating this game and keeping it with the set theme for the show. The free spins are such an exciting experience no matter what stake it is on.
