The much feared and awe-inspiring Scandinavians return in an online slot titled Viking Voyage, released by Betsoft in April 2019. Choose your weapons of war and get ready to set sail on a sea adventure with fearless Vikings in search for a satisfying and intense playing experience. Your quest will be rewarded with Scatter Pays, Stacked Wilds and a Free Spins Game that could lead you to wins of up to ₹471,300. The slot provides a balanced gameplay due to a standard RTP of 96.12%.
The sturdy layout is set upon the restless seas with ships filled with Vikings surrounding it. There are 5 columns and 3 rows of symbols with merely 10 paylines across which punters can wager from ₹10 to ₹1,000, a betting range suitable mostly for modest gamblers. Obtaining icons on consecutive reels, starting from left to right on a winline will provide payouts. Theme-related symbols occupy the reels. Low-win icons are depicted with rune-like playing card symbols 10 through Ace, delivering ₹200.00 and ₹300.00, while mid-value symbols include Axes, Helmets and Goblets awarding ₹400.00 and ₹2.000 for 5 of a kind. Three intrepid Warriors stand as the game’s top-paying symbols issuing payouts of ₹4.000 and ₹100.000 when 5 appear on a payline.
Scatter appears in the form of Odin’s Raven, bringing hefty sums whenever a minimum of 3 hit anywhere on the grid. From 3 to 5 Scatters grant prizes between ₹400.00 and ₹400.000. The Golden King leads his band of skilled warriors, appearing Stacked on reels 2 to 4, prepared to step in and substitute any other icon, including Scatter, to complete winning combinations. The symbols Wild can’t replace are the Bonus and Coin icons. Activating Autoplay will get the reels spinning without interruption for a set number of times. The session can be stopped on a set win or loss limit.
Each time Wild lands fully stacked, he will cause that reel to remain in place while others spin again, granting chances of additional wins. Should the King appear stacked once again during this spin, he will freeze this reel as well and award another Respin. You will be in for a real treat if reels 2, 3 and 4 get filled with Wilds, for big wins will keep rolling in, making a great difference in your bankroll.
A Viking Longboat representing the Bonus symbol could appear on reels 1 and 5 to create opportunities of bagging up hefty prizes. If the Longboat hits both reel 1 and 5, it will initiate a Free Spins Round with 15 freebies to take advantage from. Triggering the Bonus won’t be an easy task, and this is why the game allows you to buy into this feature at any point. A predetermined price must be paid to receive 12 free spins. Collecting Coins will gradually reduce the cost of the Buy-In Feature. Once you reach zero, the Free Spins Round will be activated automatically. Put your luck in Odin’s hands and play the Double Up Game gambling half or all your winnings.
All needed elements that will make your gaming interesting and rewarding are present in the video slot Viking Voyage. Detailed graphics, stupendous animations and a suspenseful Nordic soundtrack will put you in the mood for winning. But, what gives this game the greatest appeal are the base game and Bonus Features that carry a great winning potential. Also, if you’re not too thrifty, the Free Spins Round is at your disposal at all times, making sure you do get a piece of that Bonus action.
