Who would you say the ultimate Viking is? Would it be the King of Asgard, Odin, as seen on the Champions of Valhalla slot? Or perhaps his offspring, Thor, on Thunderstruck II? Or maybe that title can go to more than one epic Viking. Perhaps it goes to the main characters of NetENt’s Vikings slot, based on the hit TV show. With Raid Spins, Shield Walls and Ragnar and Lagertha, they certainly are true contenders.

Pros & Cons

  • Hyper realistic graphics.
  • Unique Hotspot feature.
  • Great for fans and non-fans alike.
  • Slow to land Free Spins (though Hotspot makes up for this).
  • Suited for long play, not short bursts.
  • Main wins only appear in bonus rounds.

How to Play

Vikings transports you to the fighting fields that the epic warriors used to battle on. You’ll see flags in the ground, shields laid to rest and blistery snowy backgrounds. Or you might see the lush green landscapes of Kattegat – the more you enjoy this slots play, the more different the scenery you’ll see. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll find all the buttons, including the spin button which looks like a Norse rune. The autoplay and max bet buttons are beside this. Your betting options and coin values are also clearly signposted and just need to be pressed to increase or decrease. Start spinning away and see the characters from the show come to life before your very eyes!

Symbols

The card values Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace appear as the low value symbols. But the high value symbols get true Viking treatment. These appear in the form of the main characters from the show – Ragnar, Lagertha, Bjorn and Floki. They can also appear stacked, to help create even more wins. And what else can give you more wins? The V symbol which gives you seven times your stake when it appears seven times across a payline.

Bonuses

Get ready to bang your sword against your shield (if you have one of course) and immerse yourself into the Vikings show by using the multiple bonus rounds this slot has to offer.

Bonus Name Bonus Explanation
Hotspot

The Viking characters can appear stacked, so they take up multiple spaces on the reels. If one of them is fully stacked on the third reel you trigger the Hotspot feature. Then, any other Viking character symbol transforms into the Hotspot Viking. So one big Ragnar turns all other characters to win-inducing Ragnars!

Shield Wall

“Shield Wall!” you’ll shout out when you trigger this round. It can be triggered in the base game and during Raid Spins – a Shield Wall appears as a cluster across the reels, transforming symbols into a random, higher value one.

Raid Spins

The Free Spins of the slot, is triggered when you get three Raid Spins symbols on the reels. This is where it heats up. All of a sudden, you’ll be playing on a seven reel, 78,125 Ways to Win reel set!

You get seven Raid Spins and three Hotspots on the third, fourth and fifth reels. Fully stacked Viking symbols can make other symbols appear fully stacked too, giving you the potential to win up to 10,000 times your stake on each spin!
