Plunder on the high seas is the name of the game in Viking Clash, a superbly designed 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Push Gaming. Highlights here include the Wild Ship feature which adds extra wilds and the free spins bonus round where extra wilds and multipliers can boost your winning chances. Play on all devices from between 25p and £100 per spin.

The set up in Viking Clash is a little unusual. The action takes place on 2 separate 5 reel, 25 payline reel sets. On those reels you’ll see 3 lower value rune stones, axes and hammers as well as 6 cartoon Vikings. The best of these are the pair of red-bearded warriors who will get you 16 times your total stake if you land 5 across a payline. Viking Clash comes with 2 bonus features:

Wild Ship feature – this can trigger at random on any spin. A giant wave will rise from the bottom of the screen and drop a trio of wild sailing ships onto the reels. A new payout consideration is then made. The wild ships then move 1 position to the left and another payout is made. The process is then repeated until all the ships have sailed off past reel 1.

Viking Battle Free Games feature – this round is triggered by landing 3 or more red catapult and/or green cannon scatter symbols. Every green cannon fires a sticky wild onto the red reel set with every red catapult firing sticky wilds on the red reels. Hope to see the catapult or cannon fire a wild onto an already existing wild as this then turns into a multiplier wild. Subsequent cannon and catapult scatters also add extra free spins to your total.

Push Gaming has kept things nice and simple here, certainly as far as gameplay goes. You can expect to see the Wild Ship feature sail into view at regular intervals. We found the Viking Battle Free Games feature much trickier to land. The extra wilds and multipliers can quickly have an impact when you do though.

The design here is as good as you’ll find anywhere. The 3D cartoon imagery is superb and the soundtrack adds to the epic feel. We enjoyed Viking Clash. The lengthy spells between triggering the free spins can be frustrating. Get lucky with the extras on offer there and Viking Clash can deliver some decent seafaring thrills. If you like vikings, I strongly recommend you try the trio from Yggdrasil Gaming (Vikings Go Wild, Vikings Go Berzerk and Vikings Go To Hell).
