The Viking Pays slot has 243 ways to win and a sudden death free spins bonus that will have you hoping the Vikings can go on a rampage on the reels.
With a classic Viking slot theme, this casino game has 5 reels full of runes and classic Norse memorabilia. From runes to battle axes, to the blonde viking man as the wild, this is everything you would expect. You have beautiful vistas in the background, with those Scandinavia airs adding a little cartoony flair.
It’s nice enough to look at, and as a 243 ways to win slot machine, it’s clear to see the wins as they land. All you need is to get 3 or more symbol on adjacent reels from left to right. The more symbols that land, the bigger your wins.
As with most real money slot games, but more so here as you wait to catch three scatter shields and trigger an infinite amount of free spins. That’s right, we said infinite.
What you have here is 3 coins or three lives. Every time you have a losing spin, you lose a life. Every time you have a win, you regain all your lives. So as long as you don’t have three losing spins in a row, these Viking Pays slot free spins could continue forever.
As a fun little bonus, if you get to your last coin, the centre reel turns into a massive wild Viking, adding to your odds of catching at least a 3 of a kind win.
It’s huge fun to watch, and the free spin bonus round comes easily enough that you don’t get a chance to miss them.
Part of the problem is that because the free spins come around quickly, you rarely get more than 5 to 10 spins in a round. It kills the excitement knowing that the Vikings Pays bonus spins last about as long as we would in an actual Viking battle.
Because of the pays are fairly middling. As a medium variance game, that’s no surprise, as the point is to give you just enough wins to keep going, but really to test your patience for bigger wins – not unlike the Clash of the Beasts slot or the Noble Sky game.
And there are huge wins here if you have luck on your side because on every win in the free spins the 2x multiplier increases by one, up to 50x multiplier. If you get 50 wins.
We’ve rarely seen a multiplier bigger than around 4 to 8, so don’t hold your breath, but if you have it in you to last the battle, this Vikings Pays slot has plenty to offer the patient northern pirate.

Wild: The Viking is the wild symbol and can substitute for all symbols except the Bonus scatter. It appears on all reels except 1.
Bonus Spins: 3 or more bonus scatters in view and triggers re-life spins. These are free spins, where you have 3 lives represented as coins.
Every time you have a losing spin, you lose a life. Once all lives are lost, the free spins end. However, on every winning spin, the lives are reset to 3. Just to add a little extra fun, every winning spin will increase the multiplier by one, up to x50.
On any spin where you only have 1 life remaining, the life saves spins will activate. This is when you have a wild reel on reel 3, giving you a bigger chance of getting a win and getting your 3 coins again.
Spin Chance: If your credit is reduced below the current price of play, yet it is still greater than zero. You then spin a wheel and gamble the rest of your budget. If you land on the green, the spin at the current bet is awarded and plays automatically. If the pointer stops on red segments, you lose all your remaining credits.
There's nothing particularly wrong with this Viking Pays slot on mobile, and yet we never quite got that back of our throat excitement from some of the other new video slots.
It's just that the wild is about the only thing keeping you company and the bonus spins, whilst they come often, can be a mixed bag of results.
Thank-fully the theme is fun enough, and the bonus spins have a great twist that keeps you wondering if you'll get a 3 spin losing streak or a wild reel of wins.
Fun enough game to play.
