These Norsemen have found their way to the island of Hawaii and they’ve brought a taste of the tropical to the cold frozen lands… and we like it.
The Tiki Vikings mobile slot has a little bit of a strange theme. On one hand, these 5×3 reels and 20 paylines are framed around a tiki hut, with colourful lights, flowers, coconuts and totems.
Yes, we know, there are electric lights and it’s Viking times. As we said, it’s a little strange but strangely fun.
The low paying symbols are fairly standard Ace to Jack, but you have 3 high paying fruit wearing Viking symbols and the Tiki Vikings slot logo as the highest-paid of the lot.
Just For The Win Studios (JFTW), exclusive creator for Microgaming Games, have really made something a little bit special here
Unlike sticky win games like you might read in the Jack Hammer 2 slot review, here only wins using the three Vikings will trigger the symbol lock re-spin.
What that means is that on a win, the Viking symbol will freeze and you get a free re-spin of the rest of the reels and symbols. If you catch more Vikings, they hold into place and you get another re-spin until no more Vikings are found.
So far, that sounds exactly the same as every other sticky win machine right? But isn’t it annoying that it’s only on 3 of the 8 symbols?
A little bit. But JFTW makes up for it in one significant way.
Every time you get 3 respins in a row, the Viking symbol upgrades to the next one on the paytable until you get to the highest Tiki Vikings of the lot.
Hence why the re-spins are only on the highest paying symbols, because of this upgrade, which keeps things interesting when you see those frozen symbols lock into place. We like it when JFTW keep things simple, like the Shogun of Time slot game for example.
And whilst you may not win much more than a few hundred times your bet on a very good spin, as long as you keep having fun, this tiki Vikings slot is a nice easy low variance game to pass away the time – whether to cool off in the summer or dream of the exotic in the winter.

Symbol Lock Re-Spin: If any of the high paying symbols produce a win, those symbols will now freeze into place, and you'll get free re-spins of the rest of the symbols and reels to catch more.
Symbol Upgrade: For every 3 frozen re-spins, the symbol will upgrade to the next high paying one on the paytable.
This may be a strange mashup of a theme, but we like it. This Tiki Vikings slot is a whole load of fun thanks to a simple game mechanic that keeps you wondering which of these Vikings will show up on the reels.
Don't expect massive wins. If you manage to get anything close to 50x your starting budget, you may want to move on to another JFTW mobile game - the Reel Splitter slot maybe? or their Rainbrew game even?
But we have to admit that there was something here that kept us coming back. From some quick easy wins to wonderful fun graphics and animations, we think you'll enjoy some great easy win spins.
Tiki Vikings is a 5x3 reel slot with 20 paylines and sticky win symbols on high paying symbols with symbol upgrades after 3 re-spins.
