Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win Online Slot UK

Hot off the press comes this Viking-themed online slot from Playson, which joins the bevy of Viking-themed online slot games which have hit the market during the past year. The popularity of the genre is at least partially down to the success of the television show ‘Vikings,' which enjoys a viewership of millions of people all around the globe. We have the official ‘Vikings' slot by Net Ent here at Rose Slots for you to enjoy as well, but you can rarely have too much of a good thing, and that's why we're also happy to bring you the best of the online slots from elsewhere which share the theme.

Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win Bonus Round 1

Play Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win Mobile Slot

Playson is better known for their traditional-themed slots than they are anything else, so they're breaking with their usual habit with Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win. The presentation of the slot is atmospheric, with the reels appearing to be hanging in the air at the brow of a Viking longboat. In the background is a temple, with a foreboding wintry mist partially covering the hills and the mountains in the distance. In terms of layout, this slot works with a 5x3 set of reels and rows which is the standard in online slots. Gameplay is livened up with some clever bonus features and a series of jackpots which we'll address later on in the review, but before we get to that, we'll explain what you can expect to see on the reels.

Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win Bonus Round 2

Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win has eight standard symbols. The least valuable four are the tried-and-tested playing cards, represented here by J through to A. Above them are a crow, a wolf, a female Viking with a sword over her shoulder and a fierce-looking male Viking warrior in a helmet. A wild symbol which is simply marked ‘wild' will replace every other symbol apart from the slot's additional two special symbols to complete winning combinations for you. The scatter, represented by an overflowing treasure chest, is confined to the first, third and fifth reel, and can potentially unlock one of the slot's bonus features. The other bonus feature is, appropriately enough, unlocked by the bonus symbol which is a golden coin. You may find the coins have cash values printed on them, which will make sense when it comes to the bonus feature they provide access to. As we've referred to the bonus features a couple of times now, this is the appropriate place to take a closer look at them.

Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win Developer - Playson

Maltese online slot games developer Playson opened their doors in 2012, but they were mostly unknown within the UK online slots scene until 2015 when they were approved for a license to operate within the UK. Ever since then they’ve been making up for lost time, employing hundreds of people all over the world and serving every major gaming market. As we said a little earlier on, they’re strongly associated with their traditional slots, with a range of titles to serve that market including Burning Wins, Imperial Fruits: 5 Lines and Fruits and Jokers. Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win isn’t their only step outside of their usual comfort zone, though - when they made Legend of Cleopatra they pushed the standard format of an online slot to its limits, so they’re far more than just a one-trick pony. In less than ten years they’ve established themselves as a big name company in the casino world. Another ten years from now they might be one of the very biggest.

Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win Slot Bonus Features

There are three bonus features to play for in this slot, although one of them can only be accessed from within another. The first and easiest to explain is the slot's version of Free Spins. It’s triggered by landing three scatter symbols during the base game, and you start the feature with eight spins at zero cost. While free spins are active, all four of the higher-value symbols will become colossal symbols of either 2x2 or 3x3, which makes winning combinations much easier to find. You can re-trigger this feature if you’re able to land another three scatters while the feature is active - although with so many colossal symbols there isn’t much room for them!

Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win Bonus Feature

The second bonus feature is imaginatively entitled Bonus Game, but we won't hold the unoriginal title against Playson because it's a good addition to the slot. This is where the ‘hold and win' aspect of the title comes from. You need five of the golden coins on your reels to trigger the round, which will take you to a fresh set of reels. Only one symbol can appear on the reels during this feature, and that's the golden coin. Each coin will have a different cash value printed on it. You'll start the round off with three free spins, and the reels will either come up blank, or there will be a new bonus symbol after you spin.

Every time you find a new bonus symbol, you’re awarded another three spins, and all the bonus symbols you’ve acquired stick in place. This carries on until you’re out of spins, at which point the combined value of all bonus coins on screen is added up and awarded to you as a cash prize. We also mentioned that Viking Fortune: Hold and Win has a Jackpot Feature. You can only get access to it through the bonus game, so you need to trigger that first! Three jackpots are available; mini, major and grand.

The Mini Jackpot is awarded if a bonus coin with ‘mini’ printed on it appears during the bonus round, and is worth 30x your stake. The Major Jackpot is awarded if a bonus coin with ‘major’ printed on it appears during the bonus round, and is worth 100x your stake. To get the Grand Jackpot you need to strike it very lucky during the bonus feature, and completely fill the reels with coins. That gets you a payout of 1000x your stake! You have to be playing with a stake of at least 45p for the jackpot features to be active, so there’s no obligation to go for them, but you’ll be glad if they turn up. Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win isn’t as advanced as some of the other online slots which share its theme, but it’s more than capable of holding its own and almost guarantees at least a small series of wins when you trigger the bonus features.

Vikings Fortune Hold And Win 2021

Playson’s “Viking Fortune: Hold and Win” slot is barely even two years old, and yet it’s already become a fast favorite among our members here at It’s among the top 100 “most played” slots (a list that includes well over 800 slots and grows every week), and for many people, it’s their favorite of all the slots that we offer. Even by Playson’s high standards, the slot has been a success. Given that we’ve reached the two-year mark, we thought this would be a good time to look at the slot again with fresh eyes and find out what makes it such a winner with players in 2021.

“Vikings Fortune Hold and Win” wasn’t the first time that Playson had tried on the Viking theme for size. You could almost say they had a practice run in 2017 with “Viking Gods Thor and Loki,” which wasn’t as big a success despite having some good ideas. We’ve come to think of “Vikings Fortune Hold and Win” as its better-looking, better-built brother. The coin-collector bonus adds a nice edge to every spin, and the presence of colossal symbols is always welcome - especially when they’re as good-looking as those that land on the reels of this slot. We’re still in the dark about why the slot is called “Hold and Win” when you can’t manually hold any of the reels at any stage, but we’ve learned to live with that!

The continued success of this slot is all the more surprising when you consider what it's up against. We hesitate to call Yggdrasil the masters of the Viking theme, but we're sure they'd like to think of themselves in such terms. They have every right to, considering the company's Scandinavian origins. They also work very hard to support the idea, with "Vikings Go Berzerk," "Vikings Go to Hell," and "Vikings Go Wild" all scoring big hits for the provider. We have all three of those slots here at (because who doesn't love Vikings?), and they're all popular. For Playson to hold its own with this slot is a similar achievement to anyone who's able to go toe to toe with Barcrest's "Rainbow Riches" within the Irish genre. It's not easy, and only someone brave or stupid would try!

If you were to go searching for Viking-themed slots in the collection, you'd find the other key reason for the wild popularity of "Vikings Fortune Hold and Win" - and indeed the entire Viking genre of online slots. It's a slot called "Vikings," and it's made by NetEnt. It just so happens to be the official online slots game of the globally-popular television show of the same name, which came to an end after a seven-year run in 2020. It was always popular right from the start, but it experienced a second wave of popularity when viewers migrated to it after the end of "Game of Thrones." Vikings have rarely been as "cool" as they have for the past few years, and that's led to a surge in demand for Viking-themed slots. Now that the TV show is over, we're about to find out whether all of these slots can keep hold of their players! We think "Vikings Fortune Hold and Win" is a great slot, and it deserves to have the audience it has. Whether it still will without the tangential backing of a hit television show remains to be seen. We have our fingers crossed for it!
