Few people have had the ability to both frighten and inspire awe in historians like Vikings. From their phenomenal past all the way through to today, their stories are known for making even the most cynical believer shake with fear.
Iron Dog Studio have attempted to capture the ferocity of the Vikings and put it into a game in their Viking Wid slot, but will they be successful or pillaged by axe-wielding raiders in longboats? Lets have a look.
We enter the Norse world of mythology and take a trip deep into snowy fjords with the end goal being simple – to reach Asgard. This gorgeous slot invites us on an immersive journey from start to finish, with a meaningful storyline that one could not ‘fluke’. This slot will have you coming back for more at first glance. The animation is crisp, the theming sticks throughout with a soundtrack that builds up tension as time goes on and it’s not just about to stop.
The tumbling reels feature give this game a mind-blowing up to 3,125 ways for players to receive a win, with a 5-reel, 3-row set up there is a lot for players to get excited about here. The symbols that appear on these reels are perfectly in sync with he game setting including the shield, axe, hammer and helmet as high value symbols with your standard 9 – A representing the low paying symbols.
The RTP (Return to Player) of the Viking Wilds slot game is a respectable 96%, just above average for slots of this type. Put this together with a fairly high variance offering games up to 6,000x their original stake which could vary between £/€/$00.20 all the way up to £/€/$50 suggesting the possibility of high payouts if players are willing to risk it.
As well as the tumbling reels already mentioned that remove winning symbols and fill the space with new ones thus leading to more possible wins, Viking Wilds also offer a Standard, Sticky and Expanding Wild, hence the name. The Standard Wild can land in nay reel except for the 1st and substitute for any standard symbol. The Sticky Wild can only be found on reel 3 and does the same as the Standard Wild however does not disappear after first use, instead it will drop down a row. Finally the Expanding Wild can land on nay reel apart from 1 and when it lands it turn the entire reel wild providing great payouts.
The number of ways in which players can win on Viking Wilds is unbelievable, just like the Vikings themselves. The slot is beautifully put together with an immersive narrative and decent payouts in the main game and through the use of Wilds.
