As the slot’s name suggests, it has a Norse theme; all of the action takes place on a Viking longboat that is sailing through the ocean and the reels themselves are set in an elaborate carved frame. Accompanying the game is a rousing soundtrack and enjoyable sound effects that help to create atmosphere.
All of the slot’s high value symbols are thematic. They are four Viking warriors, one with a spear, one with a helmet, a female, and a sorcerer. The lower value symbols are the royals 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. There is a golden ‘Wild’ symbol, while the scatter symbol is a helmet. The hammer is a mystery symbol.
Vikings Unleashed is packed with bonus features. Every time that you land a winning combination, the cascading reels activate. The winning symbols are removed from the reels to allow more symbols to fall from above. With a bit of luck, this will form another win, and the process can then repeat itself. This way you can land numerous wins from a single spin.
Thor’s hammer is the mystery symbol. When they land, they will randomly transform into matching symbols (any symbol other than the wild or the scatter) to help and form more win.
The main bonus is the free spins round. Landing four scatters will award 12 free spins and each additional scatter awards 5 extra spins. Once you have triggered the feature, there is an optional gamble game. You can choose to gamble your free spins or multiplier by spinning one of two wheels. If you are successful, you can win up to 27 free spins or a 10x multiplier. During the free spins, each winning cascade will increase the payout multiplier, and there is no upper limit.
In jurisdictions where it is allowed, it is also possible to buy the free spins. You can purchase 5, 8, 10 or 12 free spins for 25, 50, 75, or 100 times your bet respectively. When you buy free spins, they will always start with a x1 multiplier.
Vikings Unleashed Megaways is a medium to high volatility slot and it has an RTP of 96.50%, which is in line with the average for online slots. 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.
All of the slot’s payouts are multiples of the total bet. There is a top payout of 50x for landing six of the warrior symbols across the reels. The Viking in a helmet can payout up to 7.5x, the female can payout up to 2x, and the sorcerer can payout up to 2x. A and K can payout up to 1.75, while Q and J can payout up to 1x, 10 up to 0.9x and 9 up to 0.8x.
