Vikings NetEnt Slot Review
The TV series Vikings is the latest hit show to undergo the slots treatment. Net Entertainment have taken inspiration from the tales of Ragnar Lothbrok to create an exciting 5 reel, 3 row, 243 betways slot. With Raid Spins and a Hotspot Feature there's plenty to enjoy on this stunning looking game.
Vikings kicks off with an epic introduction featuring characters from the show. These include Ragnar Lothbrok (Travis Fimmel) and Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick). Both also feature on the reels alongside other characters from the show, Viking symbols, shields and playing cards. The Viking symbol is the top paying at x50 for five of a kind.
The reels themselves are set on the shores of an atmposhperic Norwegian fjord. Snow is falling and a longboat is setting sale for a raid. Wagering on Vikings starts at just 20p a spin. However, by adjusting the level and coin value options you can increase the wager to a maximum of £100. Autoplay options are available and advanced settings allow you to determine when the autoplay stops. These settings include if raid spins are won.
Raid Spins is the big feature of the Vikings Slot. Get 3, 4 or 5 shields in the main game to activate the feature. Players receive 7 free spins during Raid Spins - plus the slot converts to a 7 reel, 5 row, 78,125 betways reel area. A hotspot area also is activated and a stacked symbol falling in this section converts other symbols on the reels.
A hotspot area also features in the base game. When a fully stacked Viking lands completely in this this area then all Viking symbols in the play area are transformed. Scatter Pays is also activated and this can lead to some big wins! The game's other feature - Shield Wall - occurs randomly and reveals mystery symbols on the reels.
A bet way slot has different win lines from a standard 20 or 25 payline game. Bet ways win when matching symbols appear anywhere on adjacent reels from left to right. The symbols don't have to touch! Because of this it increases the number of winning opportunities on a slot.
NetEnt have quite possibly come up with the slot of the year. The graphics are stunning and you don't need to be a Vikings fanboy to enjoy what's on offer. The slot is medium to high variance with the potential for big wins coming during the Raid Spins round. You'll just need to be patient for it to materialise!
