Now, this slot has 40 paylines and you must pay a stake of one credit per line, 40 in total per spin, and the main problem I personally see in this slot is its tiny payouts during the base game, which are mainly the result of weak prices stipulated on the paytable for practically all standard symbols; I've even come to count more than 30 turns in a row all of them with payouts less than my total bet; and in fact, I only remember having heard the horn announcing big wins only about 3 or 4 times during a session of over an hour and a half, and only one of them, at the time, was decent enough to just recover losses, nothing else; others were not even enough as to achieving that; finally it became impossible for me to prevent these small Vikings go away with their booty.
In addition, the three rounds of free spins that I could trigger, they finished it with a winning of just 15x my total bet and the other two with a profit of $0, and I had the impression that larger mega icons seem to pass by when there is a matching symbol on reel 1.
My luck also didn’t appear to improve in the pond while fishing nor when I had the chance to open one of the treasure chests, in general, bonus rounds were not very generous with me.
At this point, I think I'd rather keep playing the slots “Temple Quest” and “Faeries Fortune” which were the first games where Big Time Gaming used Mega Icons, and which seem to have a fairer paytable and even a better hit average that this one. In short, I think “Viking Quest” is an extremely attractive slot, but in practice it offers less chance of winning than its predecessors.
