Vikings is an extremely popular television show that has won a variety of awards. Net Entertainment's Vikings video slot is a licensed game that uses characters and symbols from the show itself to create a very immersive environment for players.

The visual side of licensed games always get a ton of attention because of the use of characters and other assets from the show itself like clips, names, concepts, etc. However, what stands out for this game in particular is the gameplay, which is very much feature-based and that uses an innovative style, and we can't remember having seen anything like it. Combine these factors, and you get a title that's up there with the best that the industry has ever had to offer.

Betting and Layout

The format for this title is about as straightforward as you can get with five reels, three rows and a total of 243 ways to win from left to right. This is the typical 243-ways layout, but the number of reels and rows can actually change, though it will continue to be an all-ways game regardless.

You're always going to be betting based on 20 coins per spin. You can pick coin sizes that range from $0.01 at the low end up to $0.50 at the upper end, and you can also change the multiple of coins that you'll be using with the "level" control to have a wager of 20 to 200 coins per turn. This lends itself to a minimum bet of $0.20 and a maximum bet of $100. You don't need us to tell you that this is a pretty strong betting spread.

Hot Spots

In the main game, the middle reel is a 3x1 hot spot. In the Raid Spins feature, there's a 3x3 grid in the center of the reels that consists of three 3x1 hot spots beside of each other. If you get a fully stacked viking symbol in one of the hot spots, every other viking symbol on the game board is transformed into the same symbol. This includes all four of the viking character symbols.

When these are activated in this way, you activate the scattered bonus payouts. In the regular game mode, you can get up to 15 of a kind with these scattered symbols (which show up stacked for even more value) for a payout of 4,860x. However, during the Raid Spins that we'll look at below, you can pick up as much as 200,000x, which is an absolutely huge payout.

Mystery Shield Wall Symbols

Shield wall symbols can appear in clusters. When this happens, they will all turn to a randomly selected symbol so that they all show the same thing. This makes it much easier to get winning combinations, especially with the all ways format in play.

Raid Spins Bonus Round

Raid Spins shield symbols in red and green appear on the middle three reels in the regular game. Getting all three anywhere on the game board at once activates the Raid Spins feature. This is a set of free spins where the game board expands to have five rows of symbols across seven rows for an overwhelming 78,125 ways to win. This allows for the better seven of a kind payouts and the larger scatter wins as a part of the hot spots feature.

Combinations and Prizes

The V symbol that's a logo for the Vikings franchise gets you 70x for seven of a kind. You can earn 28x for seven of any of the four viking symbols, which always appear stacked, as well. These stacked symbols allow for several wins all at the same time with the all ways format. At the bottom end, you get the stylized A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols that all give you 20x for seven of a kind. You can get plenty of other wins for these symbols, including multiples with the stacked symbols in particular.

Our Thoughts

Net Entertainment takes their branded slots extremely seriously, and you can see that in a big way with Vikings. They've cut no corners on any level with the gameplay or visuals in this title, and it's one of the best-looking slots we've ever seen. The gameplay is also great with the way the features come together, especially with the hot spots scatter wins worth up to 200,000x during the Raid Spins feature.

Vikings shows that a lot of features that make sense in the context of the theme and concept of an online slot can really drive the gameplay up a notch, and that's exactly what you get when you enjoy this game.
