When it comes to Vikings and Norse mythology you wouldn’t think of laid back and cartoonish. Well, developer Relax Gaming has decided to take up the challenge and create a relaxed Viking experience. For true, hardcore Viking fans out there this might not be for you but if you’re looking for a fun little title with old Norse elements to it then this is a title that’s worth checking out.
Match runes to score some wins or go even further beyond and earn the favour of the gods by landing matching totems. These will bring you the most fortune, you’ll know you’ve made a big enough offering and matched enough symbols when you hear the hum of the god in question.
Join us as we embark on our journey to the frozen lands of the Vikings! We’ll make sure to keep you up to date with all the relevant information you’ll need when making an offering to the gods!
Theme & Symbols
You’ll feel the chill of the frozen lake you find yourself in from the moment you load up this title. The longship to the left hand side of the grid should instantly tell you where you are.
As snow falls across the landscape you start to appreciate the environmental animations that are on display. The longship bobs in the water and the sails dance in the wind all while snow blankets the surrounding area.
The tune that plays while you are in the game is impactful without being overbearing. It’s a song that you’d expect to hear from a game with a theme such as this one. Sound effects are also great, they do a good job of informing you of winning spins and help build up hype when a potential win might land.
While you might start shivering when you start examining the background to this game, the moment you trigger the bonus feature all of that will change. Flaming arrows rain down and manage to set the frozen plane ablaze! It’s a great way to get you excited for the bonus round.
While the art work might be a little simplisic, it’s full of detail that shines when you look at it closely. For example, the totem that represents Odin has a ‘x’ carved over his one eye.
Overall, developer Relax Gaming has done a good job constructing this video slot title. Let’s find out how it plays.
To start, we’ll describe the low-paying symbols. These are all represented by different coloured runes with different engravings. Get ready to see Blue, Purple, Yellow and Red runes appearing quite often as you drop the symbols in this title.
Next up we have the high-paying icons. These are all represented by the totems of the gods. Keep an eye out for totems representing Freya, Odin, Thor, Loki and a red Dragon. Combinations made using these symbols will pay out the highest.
Occasionally you’ll land some multiplier symbols on your reels as you play the game. These multipliers have three tiers. In the bronze tier are the x1 – x5 multipliers. Silver tier consists of x7, x10 and x20 and Gold tier has x50 and a massive x100 multiplier. In order to use these multipliers you need to unlock them. Each multiplier symbol has a counter in red on it, the counter will decrease with each winning cascade. When the counter hits 0 the multiplier is activated and all adjacent symbols surrounding it will be destroyed making room for new symbols to fall in. When the spin comes to an end, all collected multipliers will be added together and applied to the winnings.
By landing enough “Bonus” symbols during a single drop, you’ll activate a special bonus feature.
