Welcome to the cinematic Vikings mobile slot by NetEnt that stays true to the TV show and is a pure joyous arduous battle. But in a good way.
Here’s the good news: if you’ve never heard of the Vikings TV Show by the History Channel, it doesn’t matter.
From the dark welcoming screen of the mysterious stranger prophesying your downfall to our four main characters coming stacked 3 high, anyone with just a little knowledge of Norse lore should be able to jump right in and enjoy this historic drama.
If you love the TV show, then NetEntertainment studios have really done justice both to the theme and characters of the show; so much so that, if we were being picky, we’d say that it lacks a little drama when played at mobile casinos.
This almost needs a full big screen, some headphones, and the sound on loud to appreciate the atmosphere and wins of the game.
When you open up this Vikings slot, you’ll find what is a pretty ordinary 5 reels, 3 row slot machine, with symbols paying left to right when adjacent to each other.
What isn’t ordinary is that 3 scatters trigger 7 free spins and the reels expand to cover 5 rows and 7 reels, giving you a massive 78,125 betways and transforming this into a monster of a game.
It’s like you go from raiding little villages off the coast of Scotland, to suddenly in full war with Norway, all in the trigger of one bonus game.
Unfortunately, because the Vikings free spins can pay out so well, they are not easy to come by.
But what makes it bearable through the long periods of no free spins is the Hot Spot. That’s reel three which when one of the main characters that stand 3 symbols high fall within, will then change all other character symbols to themselves.
This is double as effective because the characters now pay like scatters – so they don’t need to be next to each. It’s triple as effective during the bonus games where you get three of these special hot spots.
Don’t get us wrong – there’s going to be haters to this Vikings slot machine. It’s a little slow and these land pirates can steal more loot than give it, but if they get on your side, you’ll be glad to have them as your clan.

Stacked Symbols: All the High Paying symbols can come stacked 2 or 3 high.
Hotspot Feature: Reel three is highlighted and if a full stack of the high paying symbols lands to cover the reel, all the other Viking character symbols turn into that character.
Better yet, these pay like scatters rather than on any betways.
Shield Wall Feature: At any point, shields may form in clusters and cover all or part of the reels, even in the bonus free spin raid feature.
These are basically mystery symbols, as they all turn and reveal any one symbol.
Free spins or Raid Spins: 3 Raid Shield symbols trigger 7 free spins where you get 7 reels and 5 rows, giving you 78,125 ways to win.
You now have 3 hot spots in the middle that cover a 3x3 area, and works just like the hotspots in the base game.
It's not often we would recommend you play a gambling game online rather than on mobile but... yeah, this Vikings slot on mobile, whilst good, doesn't compare to the cinematic experience you get when you play at online casinos.
And to be fair, there are some games where you need to sit down and commit a half hour of gameplay to try and get good results, rather than a quick 10 minutes in between boring moments of TV.
The hotspot feature is the real star of this show as you get those scatter pays that are out of this world, up to 10,000 times your bet if you are really lucky.
It's not an easy game, by any means, and you may not come out of this raid alive, but isn't that the fun of playing on these Viking themed slot machines?
The Vikings slot is a 5x3 reel slot machine with no paylines and symbols pay adjacent to each other left to right. Based on the famous TV show, it features hot spots, scatters pays, free spins and reel expansions giving you as much as 78,125 ways to win.
