Theme & Symbols
As you can imagine from the title alone, this game is themed around vikings and viking mythology. If you’ve played any other viking based video slot games before then you should have more or less of an idea as to what this title looks like.
There’s no real definitive structure to the grid, the tiles are just sort of suspended in the air. This isn’t too much of an issue, at worst it just makes the tiles look a little bit goofy. The background is pretty impressive, while everything is snowed over you can still make out distinctive landmarks like the boat that’s resting in the bay and intimidating statues that flank the grid on either side that look cold to the touch.
Music and sound effects are what you might expect from a slot like this, they’re a nice added bonus to make the time you spend with the game more enjoyable.
The animations that are on display are fine, the reels spin and cascade without issue and a few symbols come to life on a winning spin.
Overall, while the presentation of this title isn’t bad by any means, there could’ve been a bit more added to it to make it feel more like the theme it’s going for.
Let’s start off with the low-paying icons, these are represented by playing card values presented on runic stones. Expect to see symbols like J, Q, K and A appear quite often while you play.
Next up are the high-paying symbols. These ones are represented by iconic Nordic imagery, things like Bears, Odin, Freya, Thor and so on. These are the ones you’ll want to keep an eye out for (Odin pun intended) while you play.
In order to unlock this game’s bonus features you need to land a specific number of bonus symbols. We’ll go into what exactly that bonus feature is further down.
