Earlier this year we were promised a groundbreaking blockbuster slot based on smashing hit TV Series the Vikings, and now the time has come to check if that really is the case and if NetEnt came through. Vikings slot is scheduled for release on November 22nd and anyone interested in seeing how this one turned out can check the slot out at any NetEnt Casino of their choice.
Enter the Valhalla
A little intro is due for those who are not ardent fans of this show. Namely, the Vikings are the HBO’s historical drama series that follows the life of Ragnar Lothbrok, the Viking ruler. The show became an instant hit and it is left to see if the slot will be just as successful.
NetEnt’s take on everyone’s favorite raiders is set on 5 reels and 243 paylines with a couple of interesting features that we’re sure you’ll love. The betting range is wide and it starts at 0.20 per spin which means it will suit to anyone’s betting preferences regardless whether you like to bet small or big.
Visually, the Vikings slot looks nothing short of great, but we’re not surprised as we never expected anything less since NetEnt slots never fail to please the eye. Although, admittedly, we were a bit caught off guard with the striking intro which really helped setting the right mood.
We have no doubts that fans of the show will feel right at home with this one, still it’s left to be seen if other departments will suit players’ palates the same way that the visual and audio effects do.
Raids, Pillages and Wage Wars
This game is packed with action, epic fights, raids and fierce Norse warriors. The lack of Wild symbol will not be felt as the game offers so many other features, and we’re about to give you a glimpse into what to expect if you decide to get these reels spinning.
Shields up, form a line, and let’s raid the reels!
The slot features 10 symbols in total, 5 out of which are low paying, and the other 5 are high-paying. Unlike the low paying ones, the high-paying symbols are represented as the show’s characters. The neat thing about them is the fact that all high-paying symbols can appear stacked on the reels during both the base game and the spins feature.
Vikings have an interesting Hotspot feature. Hotspots are basically spaces on the reels that will transform symbols into high paying ones. Reel 3 is illuminated with an electric flow that serves as an indicator of the hotspot in the game.
Let’s not forget to mention the random Shield Wall feature that appear in a cluster of shield mystery symbol. These shields will then go revealing a high paying symbol before evaluating the wins.
The looting and rampage will continue during the Raid Spins which will build up the excitement by increasing the playing field to 7 reels with a whopping 78,125 paylines and 3 hotspots. There’s no need to mention the odds of monstrous wins when this happens.
This long awaited adaptation comes with RTP of 96.05% and looks like it is going to be a real crowd-pleaser. Seems that this collaboration between A+E Networks and NetEnt was a great move, but let’s not make any haste conclusions. We’ll let you test the game yourself before we listen to what you think about it.
