With a name like Viking Fire, we were expecting a slot title that replicates a Viking ship sailing the seven seas – but the slot game is based in the heart of the countryside with lush green grass, blue skies and mountainous areas. The reels of the game are bound with wood and rope and have Viking armour hanging from them. On the reels you will find a hammer, fire bonus symbol, Viking, cute puppy, female Viking, wizard and card values 9, 10, J, Q, K and A. As you spin the reels, it will pump out a jolly tune and when winning paylines are created, the symbol on those paylines will come alive.
There are 5 reels and 40 fixed paylines to Viking Fire slot game, allowing you to bet a minimum of 0.50 a spin or as much as 1,250. Now, if you like to conserve your bankroll, you will want to play low stakes in the hope of triggering decent wins and maximising your time playing and your chances of winning. High rollers are in for a treat however, with a 2,000 multiplier non-progressive jackpot up for grabs – you can make some serious dough.
Hot Slot Features
You’ll find many slot features to this game, but one of the most important is the wild hammer symbol. If you are lucky enough to complete a winning combination with a hammer wild symbol – that win will be doubled, an example of this is if you spin in four Viking symbols with a hammer wild, you won’t get the 750x multiplier as stated – you will get a 1,500x multiplier.
The bonus symbol is what triggers the free spins, 3 or more of these on your paylines will allow you to pick targets from your screen. There will be various targets (Viking ships) that you can pick (sink them) and these can reveal extra wilds and free games.
Picking two of the ‘x’ symbols will end the picking game and your free spins will commence. Five free spins are initially awarded but more will be added with every new wild and extra free games symbols that you pick. All new wild symbols picked will become gold and will substitute for all symbols except the hammer and bonus to help form bigger wins on your paylines.
Gamble is offered and allows you to gamble any win on the reels for more. This 50/50 game of chance is based on the colour of the next card drawn from a face-down pack of cards. Guess right and you double you cash, but one incorrect guess will result in you losing the lot.
Is It Worth It?
Well, Lightning Box have created a slot game that’s completely different to what they are known for – but that’s not a bad thing. Viking Wild may only offer three features but they can allow you to accumulate some huge wins, especially when you trigger the free spins with the golden symbols. The graphics and soundtrack are superb and allow for some effortless gameplay. When we played the game, we managed to win over 500x our stake, which is pretty impressive.
The return to player (RTP) percentage of Viking Fire slot game is 95.47%.
