Viking Runecraft Slot
Play’n GO have created a whole new level of wonder with their latest Viking mythology slot, Viking Runecraft. Go beyond the veil and experience the wonder of harness the powers of the gods to traverse worlds, increase your power levels and stare unflinchingly into the destructive void that is Ragnarök!
Theme, Sounds and Symbols
Viking Runecraft is based on Norse mythology and magic. The gods are central to your success as each of them bends their powers to assist you in your quest to face Ragnarök and walk away with wealth and glory in this fantastic Play'n GO online slot!
The gods who come to your aid in Viking Runecraft are
Odin: he is Thor’s father and god of wisdom, war and death
Thor: he is the god of thunder and rain
Freya: she is Thor’s wife and the goddess of love and fertility
Heimdall: he is the god of foresight, and therefore a guardian of Asgard
Each of the gods is vividly depicted with a unique stance, colour palette and series of abilities.
The other side is the inclusion of runic magic. A substantial part of Viking culture was the impartation of power and protection through runes. Runes are hidden behind the slot symbols and uncovering them level up your character. They are also integral to bonus features, free rounds and increased win values.
The prime symbols that appear are on the reels are a Hammer, Viking Helm, Axe and Amulet. The lower value symbols are runes on red, yellow, blue, purple and green stones.
For its apparent complexity, Viking Runecraft is built on the popular Play’n GO cascading reels engine. The base game consists of spinning the slot and landing winning symbols combinations, of 5 or more matching symbols, on the 7x7 grid.
A successful combination will see those symbols disappear, and new symbols cascade into the grid from above, potentially creating new winning combos.
These winning paylines will add to your win balance, activate the required hidden runes on the grid to unlock the next level, highlight the rune stone types that were won to collect a Rune Stone and finally charge the Ragnarök meter on the left of the game grid.
With all the intricate interplay between player levels, various gods and several different bonus features including the Ragnarök Free Round you might want to consider a lower bet setting as a test when first playing Viking Runecraft. You can quickly and easily select a bet value ranging from € 0.10 - € 100.00 per spin from the stake slider below the reels.
It is never simple when the gods interfere with mortal men and women. However, the one thing that you can always trust is that their powers will benefit your quest for glory and gold!
Power of the gods
During any non-winning spin, the currently active god may choose to bestow upon a sign of their favour. Each god offers his unique blessing:
Thor calls forth lightning to strike the reels and create up to 9 Wild.
Odin sends his two ravens each creating a group of 4 Wilds.
Freya calls downlight that forms clusters of 4 Wilds until you have a winning combination.
Heimdall summons a single Wild for each of the 7 rows.
Runes of Valhalla
In order to level up and move onto a new god, you need to have completed the rune hidden behind the reels and also have had a winning combination containing each of the five basic rune stones. Upon attaining your new level, the Runes of Valhalla feature will activate. Each of the rune stones charges a slot on the wheel which spins and rewards you with a random prize based on which rune the wheel stopped on.
Charge of Destruction
Winning combinations provide the power needed to energise the Charge of Destruction feature! As the wheel cycles through various levels of charge, one of four spells will be cast on the reels:
Fury of Fenrir – two diagonal lines of symbols are destroyed while another two diagonal lines of the symbols are converted into matching symbols.
Judgement of Jörmungandr – a swathe of symbols are selected, most will be destroyed however random symbols are transformed into matching ones.
Scorching of Surtr – 3 different symbols are selected to be duplicated, the unfortunate symbols surrounding them are sacrificed.
Lure of Loki – all symbols of one type on the grid are destroyed, a second type is transformed into a new symbol type.
While the gods may take with one hand, they always give with the other!
Ragnarök Free Round
Overcharging the Charge of Destruction symbol will trigger the cataclysm, you will start Ragnarök itself. The Ragnarök Free Round sees the not one, but all four of the Charge of Destruction features applied to the reels! All winning combinations during Ragnarök may receive a win multiplier of up to 15x!
