Viking Runes is a 9x9 video slot with a cluster pays mechanic, powered by TrueLab Games. This game is their updated version as they have re-mastered the slot to now include a new Bonus-Buy feature. Winning clusters trigger a cascade to boost your chances of winning which can increase to 25,000x your total stake. You can now try the Viking Runes Slot for free at AskGamblers, or at any TrueLab Games Casino for real.
How to Play Viking Runes Slot
Because you can light up the reels, you’ll need to learn how to place your bets:
- Using the +/- values can increase your bet or decrease it. This will then form your total bet per spin
- Hitting spin will set the reels in motion
- If you select max bet this will increase your stake to the maximum allowed. A warning box will appear to let you know how much the bet is, before you hit spin
- If you get tired of spinning the reels you can select autoplay. You will be able to use advanced settings to set the auto spins to best suit you
Just like the older version you will enjoy features that include Cluster Pays, Cascading Reels, Lightning Wilds, Free Spns, a Runic Shuffle, Viking Sorcery, Spell of Ancestors and a new Bonus Buy feature. Let’s have a more detailed look at each of these features.
You will trigger a cluster pay when you connect at least 6 or more identical symbols. This will award a win according to the paytable and multiple clusters can land at the same time. Clusters cannot consist of only Wilds, they have to have at least one adjacent symbol to create the combination.
This popular feature can be huge, as potentially it gives you multiple chances to win from a single spin. The Cascading Runic symbols form winning clusters that disappear, triggering more cascades. These will then continue until there are no more winning combinations and the cascades stop. Five or more cascades in a row will trigger the game's free spins.
Each cascade you get will also increase the number of active Lightning Wilds, up to a maximum of 4 Lightning Wilds charge their positions with each cascade.
Once you have triggered at least five cascades, you will be awarded with 6 Free Spins. This comes with a multiplier that increases upon further sequences. Depending on which country you are playing from you may also use the Bonus Buy feature to buy into this game. This means if you get bored of waiting, you can stake an amount to immediately enter into this bonus round. The cost of Bonus Buy is always equal to 215 bets.
There is powerful magic that lies within the game. It changes the positions for all symbols on the field which then guarantees a cluster win. This is a randomly triggered feature that can happen at any time.
You may also experience more miracles as the Viking Sorcery can drop 3 - 9 Wild symbols anyway on the field to boost your chances of winning a cluster.
Spell of Ancestors
When this is triggered, a mighty father will transform all of your low-paying symbols into one to create a larger, more beneficial win.
TrueLabs' older Viking Runes was a hit so there’s no reason why this new, updated version won’t be. If your country is not restricted, you now have the option to trigger the Free Spins at a cost and could win up to 25,000x your total stake! If you like the original, you’ll enjoy this one too, so be sure to give it a shot.
