The Viking Forge slot lets you hammer out some real money spins from 0.20 per spin as you try and land 8 or more symbols anywhere across the reels in this Scatter Pays slot.
The Viking Forge mobile slot from Pragmatic Play is a high volatility, 6×5 reel machine where you’ll find Scatter Pays, Tumbling Reels, Free Spins and a Coin Collection Feature, which can help boost your base game and free spins wins.
The 96.05% RTP offers some frequent returns as you line up 8 or more of the lower-paying A – 10 symbols or higher-paying Jugs of Beer, Swords, Hammers and Vikings.
There are no Wilds here; instead, it’s the Tumbling Reels and Coin Collection Feature which helps create more wins, which could land you up to 10,000x your bet maximum win.
Much like the Forge Of Olympus slot, Pragmatic Play has chosen to use Scatter Pays with Tumbling Reels to help create more wins across the six reels.
The Tumbling Reels provide extra chances to find more scatter pay combinations, with the addition of the Coin Collection helping to add some instant wins from 0.1x up to 20x your bet.
How? Well, any coin symbols attached to winning symbols are collected and paid out at the end of a tumble. This handily helps to keep your casino balance a little topped up while you ultimately wait for the free spin bonus round, which is where this Coin Collection feature takes it up a notch.
This is a high-volatility slot game, so you’ll need to have the patience to land 3, 4 or 5 scatter to trigger the free spins, as it can take over 400 base game spins to land.
You could, if you can afford it, buy the free spins for 100x your current bet, but that’s a risky call as you could win close to the 10,000x max win or as little as 5x your bet.
It’s the addition of the accumulative Coin Collection feature in the base game, which can help get you some bigger wins in the free spins. These don’t pay after every winning series of tumbles; instead, they pay at the end of the bonus games.
This bigger multiplier could help boost your wins, but getting the top win is a 1 in 4 million chance. With getting over 1,000x, your bet has more approachable odds of around 1 in 45,000 spins.
It’s a fun feature but one that takes a while to hit and doesn’t always pay out.

Scatter Pays: All paying symbols pay for finding 8 or more of the same symbol anywhere across the 5 reels.
Tumbling Reels: On a win, the winning symbols disappear, and the remaining symbols fall down, with new symbols tumbling in to fill the empty space. This continues until no more wins occur.
Coin Collection: Coin symbols can come attached to paying symbols. When they do and are part of a winning combination, their multiplier value is added to a meter at the top of the reels. This value is then paid out at the end of all tumbles, multiplying itself by the current bet. Coin symbols can have values of 0.1x, 0.25x, 0.5x, 1x, 2x, 3x, 8x, 10x, 12x, 15x or 20x.
Free Spins: 4, 5 or 6 Scatter symbols trigger 10, 20 or 30 free spins. During the free spins, the Coin Collection meter doesn't reset growing until it's paid at the end of the free spins.
Ante Bet: For 25% extra on your base bet, you can turn on the Ante Bet, which increases the chance of triggering the free spins bonus.
Buy Free Spins: For 100x your current bet, you can trigger the free spins. 4, 5 or 6 scatters will randomly land, triggering 10, 20 or 30 free spins, respectively.
The Viking Forge slot on mobile comes with a great-looking Viking theme and some entertaining features but often lacks the punch of a high volatility slot game.
Free Spins are hard to trigger, and the Coin Collection feature isn't even as hard-hitting as we'd like, often rewarding you with just 0.2x your bet or more and nowhere close to the 20x max reward.
The Tumbling Reels with Scatter Pays adds action to your spins, but even these can sometimes fall flat.
Overall, the top win has better odds than most Pragmatic Play slots online, but it still feels out of reach, with anything over 100x your bet being a good round before taking a spin on some other mobile slots like Infective Wild or Rainbow Reels.
