NetEnt’s Vikings Slot Review

Vikings is a 5 to 7 reel, 243 ways to 78,125 ways to win slot from NetEnt that is based on the iconic TV series. With amazing graphics and playable from 20p a spin on all devices, you join Floki, Bjorn, Lagertha and Ragnar in this epic release. It comes with a Hotspot feature where Viking symbols transform into the triggering symbol for scatter pays. There’s a randomly triggered Shield Wall feature where mystery symbols transform into a symbol. It’s all about the Raid Spins feature where you get 7 Raid Spins on a 7 reel, 78,125 ways to win reel set with 3 Hotspots – this allows for up to 27 Viking symbols for payouts of up to 10,000 times your stake on every free spin!

Official game for TV series

Vikings is powered by Net Entertainment and comes with 5 to 7 reels and between 243 and 78,125 ways to win. Playable from 20p to £100 per spin across all devices, this is the official slot on the hit television series. It comes with a Hotspot feature where a fully stacked Vikings symbol lands in a Hotspot with other Viking symbols transforming into that symbol. There’s a Shield Wall feature where a cluster of mystery symbols appear randomly on the reels. Finally, there’s a Raid Spins feature which is played on a 7 reel, 78,125 ways to win reel set – skol!

Join Floki, Bjorn, Lagertha & Ragnar

Visually, Vikings is amazing – based on the very popular television series, you are taken to the Norwegian fields at night-time with weapons and the black crow in the backdrop. As well as A, K, Q, J and 10 royals, you join your favourite Vikings characters on the reels – you will see Floki, Bjorn, Lagertha and of course Ragnar Lothbrok. There’s also the Vikings ‘V’ symbol which is the most rewarding giving you 7 times your stake for 7 across a payline.

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!

10,000 x Stake Wins per free spin

Medium to high variance, you can win up to 607.5 times your stake on each base game spin. Both the Shield Wall feature and Hotspot feature can reward you with 243 times your stake in the base game whilst the bigger wins will come in the Raid Spins feature (up to 10,000 times your stake on every free spin).

Overall, NetEnt has released another superb branded slot in Vikings – graphically it’s amazing and it has the bonus features and win potential to match. I would go as far to say that Vikings is the best branded title released by NetEnt to date. Will the gods be kind to you? All that’s left for you to do is join Floki, Bjorn, Lagertha and Ragnar Lothbrok in the official Vikings slot.
