Vikings Video Slot Review


Vikings is the slot developed by well known studio NetEnt. Released on 22.11.2018 it became a hit among players for its thrilling engine and fantastic artwork. This review explains all of its key characteristics that along with free demo mode available on our site give a complete idea of experience you’ll be getting.

The most anticipated slot from 2018, Vikings by NetEnt, was created using the plot of Vikings series based on historical events, which aired in 2013, causing delight among viewers.


On the technical part, the Vikings slot has 5 reels and 243 ways to form combinations during the main gameplay. The minimum bet in the slot is 0.20 dollars per spin. There are many bonus features in the slot, such as Hot Spots, Shield Wall, and Raid Spins, during which you will get a field with 7 reels and as many as 78,125 paylines.





The design of the slot is really great, as the developers were able to fully convey the gloomy atmosphere of the Middle Ages. The reels of the slot are located against the background of an icy lake, surrounded by huge hills covered with snow. You will see a crow to the right of the playing field, which will watch your every action during the game. Playing the Vikings slot for free, you will find the names of playing cards from 10 to A made of steel among the cheap symbols.

The high paying symbols are four characters from the series: the main character, the Viking leader Ragnar Lodbrog, known from the sagas for his cruel raids on France and England, his wife Langerta, their son Björn Ironside and an old friend of the main character Floki. The highest paying symbol is the V-shaped slot logo with traces of blood. All images in the slot are stackable and can completely fill the game reel.




Vikings Video slot – Gameplay and Features


In the main game, you have the classic setup with 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols.

The win-all-ways principle applies here, so there are 243 ways to win.

Furthermore, two mini-features give the main game some more body.

You have the Hot Spot feature where the middle reel is a hot spot.

If a Viking falls there, the entire reel is stacked with Viking symbols.

Then there is the Shield Wall feature.

Shields change into Vikings so that you can get higher combinations faster.









Free spins bonus round – stunning with as many as 7 reels and 3 hotspots

However, Vikings revolve around the free spins bonus, activated when you manage to spin three scatters.

Sometimes you have to wait a long time for it (on average once every 370 spins), but you usually are in for a treat!

You now get 7 free spins on an expanded grid with 7 reels and 5 rows of symbols.

Suddenly, you are playing with 78,125 ways (5x5x5x5x5x5) to win.

Besides that, you have three hotspots so that you can get a lot of stacked reels with Vikings.

So it can go very fast here.


Stakes and payout percentage

Minimum stake: $€0,20

Maximum stake: $€100

RTP (return to player): This is probably slightly on the low side, especially for Netent terms.

The payout rate of Vikings Video slot is 96.05%.





Vikings Video slot – the variance (volatility) is high

When it comes to the maximum prize, Netent is secretive about that.

According to experts, it’s possible to win a prize of 5,000x the bet at Vikings.

Vikings is, according to Netent, a high variance slot.

This means that it is indeed possible to win substantial prizes of say 2,000x to 5,000x the bet.

Of course, the odds of this are not very high, but it is certainly realistic.

We have seen prizes of 2,000x and even 3,000x the bet.

You can compare Vikings with other Netent slots like Jungle Spirit and Jack and the Beanstalk in terms of variance.





Vikings Video Slot (NetEnt): Verdict


Vikings Video Slot could very well turn out to be NetEnt's best game since the release of Jungle Spirit. Sure, it can be a bit frustrating to end up with dead spins and plenty of low paying bonus rounds despite a trillion win ways, although to be fair, there are providers that are far worse when it comes to this aspect.

Vikings is without a doubt a mega potential slot that is not nearly as brutal as Novomatic or Merkur slots tend to be just to make a comparison. Furthermore, Vikings appears to be well balanced with capacity to entertain and captivate players.
