NETENT VIKINGS SLOT OVERVIEW
You know them, you love them and now you have the chance to play them in a unique reinterpretation of your favorite History Channel drama. The Vikings slot game was released on November 22nd, 2018 by NetEnt and uses HTML5 as the main technology. So whether you’ve been a long-time Vikings fan or you’re just getting started, you now have the opportunity to fight alongside your favorite characters in this video slot that features engaging footage and themes from the well-known TV drama.
HOW TO PLAY THE VIKINGS SLOT
The Vikings slot is playable on all devices, including mobile and has an RTP of 96.05%. Before you engage in your next raid, you have to keep in mind that you can bet anywhere between 0.2 to 200 coins (that makes €0.20 to €200) per spin, the game offering five rows, three reels and 243 ways to win. It also comes with an autoplay feature. That means you can just kick your shoes off, sit back and enjoy a hot cup of coffee while the game basically plays itself. That does not mean you can’t stop the reels at any given time, though, in case you have a secret winning strategy you might want to try.
The NetEnt’s Vikings slot features a free demo version that offers you a taste of the real experience without having to pay real money, register an account or download the software. You can either play it here or find the full version in SlotsMates.com’s Real Money Slots section.
VIKINGS SLOT FEATURES
- Raid Spins. Whenever you get three raid symbols on reels three, four and five, you will trigger the Raid Spins feature. What does this mean? It means that you will then play in a 7 reel, 5 row and 78.125 ways to win set. This will reward you with 3 hotspots on reels 3, 4 and 5 in 7 raid spins. During the Raid Spins feature, you can also trigger the special Shield Wall feature, the next one on our list.
- Shield Wall. This feature isn’t specific to the Raid Spins, which means you can also trigger it in the base game. You will know you triggered this when an array of mysterious symbols appear on the reels, in one random area. During the Raid Spins mode, this feature can only be triggered when you have an active Hot Spot, increasing the size of the shield wall to 4x2, 5x2 or 5x3.
- Hotspot. Available in both the Vikings base game and Raid Spins mode, the hotspot feature can and will be triggered at the moment when one of the main characters (Ragnar, Lagertha, Bjorn or Floki) lands in the hot spot area, fully stacked. All non-triggering characters on the reels will turn into the winning one, awarding the pay based on the number of symbols on the reels.
- Authentic Vikings Theme. This Norse adventure-themed slot game has all the details nailed down, from the gloomy atmosphere to the music and graphics. You can see the care and attention to detail from the very first time you lay eyes on the title screen, the cabin of The Seer. A black hooded figure will then greet you in his familiar tone: “So, you desire a prophecy, my curious visitor.” The Vikings slot game comes with a set of 10 symbols made of numbers, letters and, of course, characters from the show. They are all designed in the classic rugged Norse style so if you’ve been a long-time Vikings fan, you will feel right at home.
In conclusion, if you enjoy both Vikings and gaming, this is an experience you must try at least once. The graphics, audio cues and atmosphere will make you feel like a mighty Viking and, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want to feel like that? Give it a spin and join Ragnar in his greatest conquest yet!
