Theme, Soundtrack and Symbols
With graphics based on the TV show created by Michael Hirst, you don't have to be a fan of the show to enjoy playing the game with echos of that Scandanavian winter wonderland. The thematic tune and graphics suggesting dead opponents are lying hidden in the tall grass will aid in you losing yourself in the moment, as you do battle with the slot machine.
The beautiful animation in muted tones and chilling score bring you spine-tingling wins. Wins can happen frequently and will defrost the heart of even the most hardened gamer.
Thanks to a wide range of settings in Auto Play, you find yourself sitting back to watch the screen like its a money-making screensaver. But, more about that, later.
You can set the value of your coins from 0.01 to 0.50 (in increments of 0.01, 0.02, 0.05, 0.10, 0.20, and 0.50). When your coin value is set to 0.01, your max bet is €2. But when your coin value is set to 0.50, your max bet becomes €100. The minimum bet is 20 cents, though new gamers should test out the slot before they play with the big bucks.
Like with most online slot games, the more you bet, the more you win, but there is nothing wrong with building your confidence before you do so.
There is a handy Auto Play feature where you can set your bet and number of spins, but, in advanced settings, you can also set AutoPlay to stop on any win, or if a Raid Spin is won, as well as a few other variables related to the amount of cash won or bet.
This handy feature lets you really enjoy your wins. Of course, you can also hit the stop button at any time to take over the reins again, should you feel inclined.
Understanding the Pay Table helps you to come to grips with which images you are keeping your fingers crossed for, as you click to spin and win.
Let's start with the basics and dive into Raid symbols. Three Raid symbols in reels 3, 4 and 5 in the main game, will activate Raid spins.
Raid Spins will then turn the playing area into a 7 reel, 5 rows. And seven Raid Spins award will score you three Hot Spots that need to display in reels 3, 4 and 5 for big wins.
When a fully stacked Viking symbol lands completely in one or more Hotspot areas, all other symbols both inside and outside the playing areas, are transformed into the same fully stacked Viking symbol that landed in the Hot Spot area.
The Hot Spot feature will turn reel 3 into well, a Hot Spot. When a fully stacked Viking symbol lands fully in the play area, all symbols will replicate into the Viking symbol that landed in the Hot Spot area.
If any of the 4 symbols has a face on it, then you have yourself a Viking symbol.
Both single and fully stacked Viking symbols transform when the Hot Spot feature activates.
Scatter Pays to activate when the fully stacked Viking symbol lands completely in the Hot Spot. It doesn't only bring the big wins, but you get to enjoy a beautifully animated eagle while the cash adds up.
Shield Wall feature comes into play when mystery symbols appear on random areas of the reels in both the main game in Raid Spins. When the mystery symbols appear, all wins can payout big.
