The Erik the Red mobile slot is a good middle of the range game by Relax Gaming that is worth taking a couple of spins.
With some games, it’s tough to write a casino slot review about, mostly because they are just ok. It’s not bad. It’s not amazing. It’s just good.
And this Erik the Red slot is good. It’s got some fantastic animations as you spin 5 reels and 4 rows full of Viking slot symbols set on the sail of a longship.
The sounds are authentic, the characters are pretty, and they stand out beautifully on a red sail, with the flotilla of ships getting ready for the invasion.
You can’t deny that there’s something very appealing about knowing that one symbol, before any turn, is chosen to come stacked on the reels.
It’s just one symbol before each spin, but we’ve seen a screen full of the same symbols to know that it can be very effective to bring a little thrill to the base game.
Usually, the lower paying symbols are picked, so it’s not always mind-blowing, but that’s the thing about mid variance slots. Sometimes they are huge, but mostly it’s just middle of the road wins.
Because during the free spins, each of the reels above will have the word “wild’ written. The reels where you got your three scatter triggers will start with the letter ‘w’ and ‘i’ already lit up.
Two more scatters in those reels will complete the words, give you another spin and turn that reel wild for the remainder of the free spins.
Technically you can turn all reels wild, but to be honest, getting just two reels wild will give you good results, three will give you great results and more is when you’ll fall in love with this Erik the Red slot game.
If you don’t, well, there’s always the Hall of Gods jackpots.

Wild: The Sword is the wild symbol and replaces all other symbols on the reels to create a win over the 20 paylines.
Mystery Stack Feature: Before any spin, one symbol will be chosen to appear stacked on all five reels.
Scatters: 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols on reels activate 8 free spins. At the top of each reel, you will see you need to collect four of these symbols.
When you do, that reel will now turn wild and stay wild for the duration of the free spin bonus round. The reels in which you land your triggering scatter will give you a head start by collecting 2 of the 4 symbols needed.
For every locked wild you get, you'll also get an additional free spin. You can, hypothetically, turn all five reels wild.
There's a lot to love about this Erik the Red slot on mobile. For one, you get one symbol to come stacked on every spin, for two you get locked wild reels during the free spins.
But if you like Norse legends, Viking warriors, and northern lands, Erik by Relax Gaming has plenty to offer and pretty enough graphics that makes spinning enjoyable.
It's not a casino game you'll be playing years in the future, but fun for the next couple of months.
