Vikings Online Slot UK

If you've been keeping your eye on what's hot in theming for online slot games over the past couple of years, you might have noticed a sudden spike in the number of online slots coming out that are either based on Vikings or Norse mythology. That's not a coincidence - they're happening because of the huge success of the TV series ‘Vikings.' The show started in 2013 and will soon begin its sixth season, and has captured the public's imagination in a way no show has managed since ‘Game of Thrones.' We have several Viking themed slots available at Rose Slots, but this one from Net Ent has the official license, and so features characters and visuals that come directly from the show.

Viewers of the show will recognize the mean and moody style immediately, but it's all window dressing for a standard set of five reels and three rows. Vikings has 243 paylines available thanks to an unconventional structure which allows for wins to be counted so long as matching symbols appear on adjacent reels. The reels are transparent, allowing us a clear view of the snowy terrain beyond them, with snow continuing to fall as you play. That makes for a frosty but authentic atmosphere backed up by the show's iconic soundtrack.

Even the traditional playing card symbols which account for the slot's least valuable offerings have been dressed up to suit the theme - they're silver and splattered with blood as if they were battle weapons. Above them are the show's main characters - Rollo, Floki, Lagertha, and Ragnar, all of whom stack when they appear. The most valuable basic symbol of all is the ‘V' of the show's logo.

While there isn't a ‘traditional' wild symbol in the slot, there's a ‘Hot Spot' bonus feature which works in largely the same way. We'll get to that in a moment. There's also a scatter symbol called ‘Raid Spins.' You can probably guess from the title that it also has a role to play in the bonus features, and so it's high time we took a look at them.

Vikings Developer - NetEnt

It seems only right that Net Ent was granted the official license to create the Vikings slot; they're Swedish, and so they have the closest geographical claim to the theme of any major online slots developer out there! They're also a solid and trustworthy company, having opened in 1996 and stood the test of time. They started out by making physical casino products but quickly realized that the world was heading in a different direction and focused on creating online slot games and other virtual casino products instead.

Gaining access to the huge UK online slots market is critical for any developer with intentions on making it big, so Net Ent opened a second set of offices in Malta to fulfill that need. Since then they've continued to go from strength to strength, with their products now available in over twenty different languages, and customer service available around the clock.

To date, Net Ent have overseen the development and release of more than one hundred online slots. They're generally associated with the more traditional end of the market, so to see them making sleek and sophisticated video slots like Vikings is something of a surprise. That's not an insult to the standard of their usual output though; Starburst and Dazzle Me, in particular, is as pretty and playable a traditional slot as you could ever hope to find.

Vikings Slot Slot Bonus Features

There are three bonus features in Vikings, one of which occurs randomly. We’ve already mentioned the ‘Hotspots’ bonus game though, and so we’ll start off by looking at that.

Hotspots are all about the third reel. As we've already said, the characters from the show arrive as stacked symbols, and can sometimes fill a whole reel. If they manage to fill the third reel, hotspot mode is activated, and every other Viking character symbol elsewhere on the reels transforms into the same one which is stacked in the third reel. The transformed symbols - along with all of those on reel three - are they counted and paid as scatter symbols. If every single symbol on the reel now matches - which is only possible if you had reels full of Viking characters on the original spin - the payout is 200,000x your line bet. This is very unlikely, so don't hold your breath for it! The lower payouts are still very nice.

Shield Wall is a mystery symbol that modifies the reels. On any spin, you may find that several warriors’ shields land on the reels in place of the usual symbols. When the spin ends, the shields will be lifted to reveal a set of matching symbols, which are then evaluated for wins.

The third and final bonus feature is Raid Spins, and it's a huge one. Landing three of the Raid Spins symbols on reels two to five will trigger the feature and give you seven free spins. These free spins take place on a new set of reels, which are 7x5, and contain 78,125 potential ways to win. Not only that, but while the free spins are active, the hotspot bonus is valid on the third, fourth and fifth reel, trebling your chances of a big win.

With a property as valued and loved as ‘Vikings,' which has such a huge fan base, Net Ent would have been under pressure to come up with a great slot to justify the license. They've achieved that. The hotspots feature is particularly exciting; you know the chances of you landing the gigantic jackpot are slim, but the joy is in the trying!
