Everybody loves Vikings, right? Since the TV show became a huge success, their popularity, especially on slots, has rampaged. NetEnt’s Vikings slot based on the TV show is proof of this. Play N’ Go get in on the Viking action with its high octane, action packed Viking Runecraft slot.

How to Play

There’s a very runic feel to this slot. Which makes sense really when you consider the name. Similar to Asgardian Stones, there’s a big focus on icons and stones (especially as symbols) but there are lots of uniquely designed Viking characters too. It’s easy to get started on this slot, with all the buttons laid out clearly at the bottom of the screen, including betting options and the play button. As you see the symbols spin away and match each other they explode to make more space for new ones to fall in from above. You’ll also see meters and bonus information on the sides of the screen – but more on that later.

Symbols

As you might have guessed, there just has to be some symbols in the form of runes. And that’s what you get with the five lower value symbols. Meanwhile, the high payers take shape as an Axe, Hammer, Helmet and Necklace.  Then there are the four Wild symbols represented by the Norse gods, Heimdall, Freya, Thor and Odin.

Bonuses

Any gaming fan looking to play online slots will look out for hot bonus features, and the bonus setup on Viking Runecraft really sets this slot alight. In particular the ongoing Charge of Destruction feature, which is as epic as it sounds.

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Charge of Destruction

On the left of the screen you’ll see a meter which tracks your wins. Once it’s filled you’ll unlock the Charge of Destruction, which gives you one of four bonuses:

Fury of Fenrir – four diagonal lines are selected with two lines disappearing and the other two transformed into the same symbol.

Lure of Loki – two symbols are picked at random with one transformed into another symbol, while all symbols that match the other disappear.

Judgement of Jörmungand – a path is drawn across the screen and all symbols in its path disappear to be replaced with a randomly selected symbol.

Scorching of Surtr – three selected symbols light on fire, spread over to nearby symbols and destroy them. New symbols then appear in their place.

Ragnarok Free Spins

Fill the meter up twice or get 20 symbols added to the meter to start Ragnarok Free Spins. The meter changes to the End of the World Bonus meter, during which you can add Multipliers to your spins.

Gift of the Gods

A random feature triggered in the base game. Wild symbols appear, as depicted by the relevant gods on the right of the screen. They help to improve your winning chances, such as giving you two pairs of Wilds or Clusters of Wilds.

Runes of Valhalla

When you clear a pattern after a win, you trigger this bonus. You’ll see a Bonus Wheel on screen. Simply spin away for a cash prize.
