In the Raid Spins feature, there are 3 Hotspots and you play on an expanded reel set with 7 reels and 78,125 ways to win. This increases your chances of forming bigger winning combinations.

Hotspot feature

Vikings comes with a Hotspot feature. This is triggered when a fully stacked Viking symbol (either Floki, Bjorn, Lagertha or Ragnar) lands fully in a Hotspot on reel 3. All other Viking symbols on the reels transform into that symbol For example, if Ragnar Lothbrok lands in the Hotspot, all other Vikings (Floki, Bjorn and Lagertha) will transform into Ragnar Lothbrok symbols.

What’s better is that it will pay scatter style meaning that you’ll get bigger wins. You’ll get a win for just 3 symbols right up to 27 with a top reward of 243 times your total stake!

Shield Wall feature

Vikings also comes with a Shield Wall feature which can be triggered in both the base game and Raid Spins feature (more on the latter below). The Shield Wall appears as a cluster of mystery symbols in a random area on the reels. These transform into a randomly chosen symbol.

Raid Spins feature

Finally, Vikings offers you the Raid Spins feature which is triggered when you get 3 Raid Spins symbols on the reels. You will then play on a 7 reel, 5 row, 78,125 ways to win reel set. You will be rewarded with 7 raid spins with 3 Hotspots on reels 3, 4 and 5.

If a fully stacked Viking symbol lands fully in 1 or more of the Hotspots, all other Viking symbols outside and inside the Hotspots transform into the same Viking symbol that triggered the Hotspot feature. This allows for lots of the same Viking symbol to appear on the reels for huge wins of up to 10,000 times your stake on each raid spin.

Vikings Slot RTP, Details & Wager Limits

The Vikings slot starts off on 5 reels, 3 rows and 243 ways to win. You can land a winning combination matching symbols on adjacent reels (next to each other) beginning from reel 1. In the Raid Spins feature, you play with 7 reels, 5 rows and 78,125 ways to win.

Playable from 20p to £100 per spin, there’s an Autoplay function where you can play anything up to 1,000 autospins. If you go to the Advanced Settings section, you can stop the Autoplay in a number of ways. This includes on any win, if the Raid Spins feature is triggered, if a single win exceeds a chosen amount if your balance increases or decreases by a chosen amount.

A high variance slot, the Vikings RTP is 96.05% which is average for an online slot. The hit frequency is 18.05% meaning less than 1 in 5 spins will result in a winning combination. The game may be branded but can lure you in and bleed your bankroll dry.
