Join a fearsome band of Norse warriors in Vikings of Fortune, a 5 reel, 25 payline jackpot slot from Blueprint Gaming. It comes with superb sound and visuals as well as a bonus feature where you can win up to 100 streak spins. Start your quest, on all devices, from between 25p and £125 per spin.
The theme here is epic and that’s matched by the design which is excellent. Set against a rugged, mountainous backdrop, the reels include an assortment of swords, shields and axes, horns, helmets and longships as well as Norse gods and goddesses.
There’s also a wild which awards 4, 20 or 400 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline. Look out too for the second Thunder Streak wild – when this lands on reel 3, it expands to fill the reel. You’ll also be awarded a re-spin with any winning symbols held. The re-spins continue as long as a new matching symbol joins the cluster. These continue until no new matcher is lander or you fill the whole screen. The payout is then made. This is known as the Thunder Streak feature.
Land 3 or more Bonus symbols to trigger the Bonus Thunder feature – these symbols are then locked and a re-spin follows. Again, these continue as long as a new Bonus symbol lands. The more Bonus symbols, the more free spins awarded:
- 3 Bonus symbols – 8 Thunder Spins
- 4 Bonus symbols – 10 Thunder Spins
- 5 Bonus symbols – 12 Thunder Spins
- 6 Bonus symbols – 15 Thunder Spins
- 7 Bonus symbols – 20 Thunder Spins
- 8-9 Bonus symbols – 50 Thunder Spins
- 10+ Bonus symbols – 100 Thunder Spins
The Thunder Spins wild is locked on the middle reel during the free spins meaning the Thunder Streak feature is in play whenever you land a winner. Vikings of Fortune is also part of the Jackpot King network which means a progressive jackpot is up for grabs – to win this, you need to see the Jackpot King symbol on reels 1 through 5.
Vikings of Fortune is all about the streak spins. We went through some lengthy winless runs but managed to do well when we triggered the Thunder Streak feature and especially the Bonus Thunder feature. The visuals are top notch and the sweeping soundtrack certainly adds to the epic feel.
Combine the high spec design with a pair of cracking features and Vikings of Fortune becomes a playable and entertaining offering, especially if you manage to land the Bonus Thunder feature with a healthy number of free spins. I also recommend you try Blueprint Gaming’s Fortunes of Sparta which also have the same epic feel.
