What is this mobile slot about?

Played on a 7×7 grid and 10,000 levels, this Viking Runecraft mobile slot is like few others and worth a spin, even if you think you won’t like it.

We’ve got a lot to get through, so let’s make a couple of things really clear:

  1. This is a Play’n GO mobile slot; it sounds, looks, and plays beautifully. The theme is exactly what you expect from a game called ‘Viking Runecraft’.
  2. If you loved the Gemix slot machine, you’ll love Viking Runecraft. Don’t stop to read this game review, just play.

Still here? Right, let’s get into the details of what godly wonders you’ll find here.

Multi-level gameplay with a host of bonuses

Don’t assume, that because there’s 10,000 levels to get through, starting from journeyman, leading to viking warrior, and ending in Valhalla, that this is a particularly complicated game.

In fact, the real charm here is that it’s got some very simple mechanics – much simpler than other grid slots like Cloud Quest, for example.

Essentially, every cluster of 5 or more symbols will get you a win. These winning symbols will then explode, and more will topple from above.

There are 4 bonus wild features that keep you occupied through your Viking Runecraft slot travels, plus an in-game jackpot that you can trigger every time you go up a level, and a further 4 bonus features triggered if you get enough chain reactions of wins.

All details compared to the Ragnarok bonus

All of the above keep you playing. It’s so easy to get lost in the company of these great norse gods, that it’s good to remind yourself, every once in a while, that the wins aren’t actually that impressive in the base game.

Yet, this high volatility slot machine impressed us by the fact that not only didn’t we care, but just when we were thinking of leaving, it gave us such a blazing win (of over 100 times our bet) that we were back to loving every spin.

You’ll keep coming back to the Viking Runecraft slot

The Viking Runecraft slot game is a hard beast to quit, especially as it keeps your progress. So you can’t help but try a few spins to get Thor, Odin, or Loki back on your side everytime you log in to your favourite online casino.

Another instant hit by Play’n GO, in our opinion. And this is coming from the guys who only sorta liked their now famous Energoonz grid slot.

Turns out, we just needed some bad ass Vikings to convert us.

In-game bonus features

Go Up Levels: There are a total of 10,000 levels in this Viking Runecraft online slot.

However, all that means is that you get a different Gift of the Gods feature on each changing level, and trigger the Runes of Valhalla bonus.

You go up a level by getting wins over pre-set patterns on the grid.

Not quite as clever as the Cleopatra Plus slot, but a lot more fun in our opinion.

Gift of the Gods Features: There are four gods in total, each with their own special random feature that trigger after any spin.

The gods change every time you go up a level:

  • God of Thunder: Lightning strikes creating 5 to 9 wilds
  • God of Wisdom: 4 wilds are created in groups of 2
  • Goddess of Beauty: She creates wild symbols in four clusters until at least one win is achieved
  • God of Guarding: One wild symbol is created on each row

You can win up to 5,000 times your bet if you clear enough of the board with these features.

Runes of Valhalla: As you play each level, you'll get wins on any of the 5 different rune symbols.

These collects them on the top left hand corner, and these will have a little mini in-game jackpot.

When you go up a level, a bonus wheel will show up, and spaces will light up, depending on how many runes you collected.

Hit the light up spaces and you win a cash bonus.

The higher the levels you go, the better the mini in-game jackpot, as it grows by 12x of symbol win amounts.

Charge of Destruction: The wheel on the left hand side will charge up on every win you get on this Viking Runecraft phone slot.

Get a win on 20 symbols (whether at once, or on consecutive wins) and you'll trigger one of 4 special features:

  • Fury of Fenrir: Four diagonal lines of symbols are selected. Two are removed and the other two are transformed to the same symbol.
  • Judgement of Jörmungandr: A chain of symbols on the grid are selected. Most are destroyed, but some are transformed to the same symbol.
  • Scorching of Surtr: Three different symbols are selected. Surrounding symbols are destroyed and the selected symbols are duplicated.
  • Lure of Loki: All of two different symbols are selected. One group is destroyed and the other transformed to the same symbol.

Ragnarök free spins: Get a win on 40 symbols (at once, or as a chain reaction) and you'll a free round.

Whenever no more wins are achieved during this free spins, a charge of destruction feature will trigger.

Each feature only triggers once, and the Ragnarok feature ends when all four charges have triggered.

The charge of Destruction wheel now turns into a multiplier wheel, multiplying all your wins - starting from 2x up to 15x, depending on how many wins you get in a row.

By far the most ludicrous bonus game in this Viking Runecraft video slot.


Closing thoughts

The Play'n GO grid slots are famous for trying to do things a little differently; namely provide you with a mobile slot machine that is as much game as spinning reels.

As far as we are concerned, this Viking Runecraft slot on mobile is the best of the lot, thanks to putting together everything we love, and supercharging it.

However, the journey to reach the gods is not an easy one, and despite what might seem easy wins, you'll need staying power in order to hit multiple features and big wins.

If you want a video slot with a little less commitment, and more classic in style, you'll probably want to play on something like Dragon Ship by Play'n GO instead.
