If there’s one thing that could be more powerful than an angry horde of Vikings, it must be the allure of big wins. In Viking Wilds online slot the Norsemen are not the bad guys, not by any means. Their job is in fact to serve you up a treat of high payouts and magnificent bonus features. However, these aren’t the only horned hat bruisers around, as various other Viking themed slots currently exist on the market. So, how does this rendition of a Viking slot fare to the others?
The brains behind this title is Iron Dog Studio, a fairly new brand with only a handful of titles to their name. You might recognise their parent company 1×2 Network, however, let’s rather focus on the game. Free spins, multipliers, exotic wilds – they’re all here in Viking Wilds. The graphics aren’t too bad for a newer studio with well crafted characters and superb attention to detail. There isn’t much point to playing with the sound on as you’ll probably hit the mute button once the theme music starts wearing thin. To the right of the reels you’ll notice changing Viking characters, a sultry female warrior in particular. To the left of the reels lie 3 mysterious viking symbols.
All the action plays out over 5 reels, and the initial payline amount starts at 1024. These can increase to 3125 lines, the details of which we’ll go into later. The maximum you’ll be able to win in Viking Wilds is a hammer crushing £300,000.00. We doubt even Thor would be able to keep his knees from shaking should this jackpot be won. To be in with a shout of reaching this amount you’ll need to be playing the max bet of £50, while players starting at the minimum wager of £0.20 will be winning considerably lower amounts.
Whether you’re playing on mobile or desktop you’ll find the same fantastic experience. It also serves as a comfort having a 96% RTP ratio to ensure that you don’t lose Valhalla loads of money.
The symbols are quite thrilling compared to what we’ve seen in myriad online slots before this one. Most titles carry with them only 1 wild symbol, however Viking Wilds has 3, which is where the game draws its title. Each wild has a different function but the core purpose is to substitute regular symbols to create winning paylines.
The regular symbols are divided into higher paying and lower paying. The higher paying icons start with an axe, a shield, a helmet and a hammer, and then move on to 3 symbols unique to Viking culture, with the red backgrounded symbol the highest paying at 100x your bet for landing 5 of a kind. The lower paying symbols are as basic as it gets, consisting of playing cards J, Q, K and A.
Bonuses and Jackpots
The wilds have 3 different functions. They start with the regular wild which is quite tame compared to the other 2. This wild will simply substitute all regular symbols to create a winning payline. The next wild is the sticky wild, which only appears on reel 3. You’ll notice that every time you land a winning combination the winning symbols will explode resulting in existing symbols falling into their place with new symbols falling into the reels to fill the empty spaces. The sticky wild will remain on the reels throughout winning combinations of the tumbling sequence. The last wild is the expanding wild, which when it falls fills an entire reel to form winning combinations.
You can trigger free spins in Viking Wilds, and this is done by landing all 3 wild symbols during the tumbling sequence upon which 12+ free spins will be awarded. During the free spins you will also receive an increased multiplier for ever wild that lands. You can randomly receive an expanded reel, or even 3 expanded reels. This is where your payline number will increase to boost your winning potential.
