Vikings Unleashed MegaWays is powered by Blueprint Gaming and has 6 reels and up to 117,649 paylines. Playable from 20p to £100 per spin across all devices, this viking themed extravaganza comes with transforming mystery symbol and a Free Spins feature where the multiplier increases with each win. You can also buy your ways into the feature for a price if you cannot wait.
I must say that Blueprint Gaming has really upped their game in 2018 with the launch of multiple MegaWays titles – graphically superb, it comes with a thunderous soundtrack which is good enough for a feature film or TV series (hint: Vikings). Set on a longship, symbols on the reels Norse style A, K, Q, J, 10 and 9 royals as well as a sorcerer, female viking, Berzerker and male viking.
The latter is the most rewarding giving you 50 times your stake for 6 on a payline. There is also a wild symbol that substitutes for all symbols bar the scatter. Using the MegaWays game engine from Big Time Gaming, the number of ways to win varies with each spin – up to 117,649!
The game also comes with Thor’s hammer which is the mystery symbol – this transforms in a randomly chosen symbol bar the wild and scatter for bigger win potential. This is known as the Mystery Symbol feature.
Vikings Unleashed MegaWays is all about the Battle of the Seas Free Spins feature which is played when you get 4 scatters – this will give you 12 free spins. Every extra scatter will give you 5 more free spins. Once you trigger the feature, the Gamble feature comes into play – you can choose to gamble your free spins or multiplier. If successful, the number of free spins or multiplier will increase by 1 – up to 27 free spins or a 10x multiplier. If you lose your gamble, you will return to the base game.
Anyway, and once in the feature, you will begin with a 1x multiplier - each win will see the contributing symbols disappear to be replaced by new ones. If you win again, the multiplier increases by 1. There’s no limit to how high the multiplier can go. Furthermore, you can retrigger the feature with unlimited free spins on offer.
Lastly, there’s a Free Spins Unleashed Bet feature – this allows you to buy your ways into the Battle of the Seas Free Spins feature. You will be presented with 4 options:
- 5 free spins with a multiplier starting a 1x – price: 25 times your stake
- 8 free spins with a multiplier starting a 1x – price: 50 times your stake
- 10 free spins with a multiplier starting a 1x – price: 75 times your stake
- 12 free spins with a multiplier starting a 1x – price: 100 times your stake
As you’d expect, Vikings Unleashed MegaWays is a high variance slot with maximum wins of 10,000 times your stake on every free spin. Visually it’s superb and I quite like the mystery symbols in the base game. The main attraction is the Battle of the Seas Free Spins feature where the bigger wins will come from. Overall, another superb MegaWays title from Blueprint Gaming – I also suggest you try Primal MegaWays which is also brilliant.
