The slot has a Norse theme and the game takes place against a stunning backdrop of a temple, mountains, longboats and ornate statues. The theme is brought to life with the aid of a dramatic soundtrack and exciting sound effects on every spin.
The game’s high value symbols are thematic. They include a male warrior, a female warrior, a wolf and a raven. The lower value symbols are the royals J, Q, K and A. There is a shield wild symbol while the scatter symbol is a chest full of gold coins and the bonus symbol is a gold coin.
There are plenty of bonus features in Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win. To begin with, landing three scatter symbols triggers the free spins. During the free spins, the bonus gold coins and the four high value symbols can appear in colossal versions that will occupy 2x2 or 3x3 reel positions, making high value wins that much easier to land. Better yet, the free spins can be retriggered indefinitely.
Landing five or more of the gold coin bonus symbols at the same time will trigger the bonus game. You win three respins on a set of reels that only contain the coin symbols and blanks. If you land an additional coin during the respins then the counter is reset to three. This way the respins can continue until the reels are entirely full of coins or until there are no spins left. Each coin will land with a value worth between 1 and 24 times your bet and you win the total of all the coins when the spins end.
There are also three jackpot prizes that can be won during the bonus game. If a coin labelled with the Mini Jackpot lands you will win 30 times your bet and the Major Jackpot coin will award 100 times your bet. If all positions are filled with gold coins then you will win the Grand Jackpot, which is worth 1000 times your bet.
Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win is a medium to high volatility slot and it has an RTP of 95.20%, which is slightly below average, but not by a great deal. A high volatility slot will payout large amounts but not very frequently while a low volatility slot will payout small amounts regularly. This game leans towards the higher end of the spectrum.
Both the wild symbol and the Viking man offer the slot’s standard top payout of 500x when five land along a payline. The woman can payout up to 300x, the wolf up to 200x, and the raven up to 150x. All of the royal symbols can payout up to 50x. However, the biggest wins are likely to come through the game’s Hold and Win bonus feature.
