Play the Reels
There are 5 reels in this slot, making it one of the bigger creations from Magnet Gaming. Cartoonlike but quirky in appearance, there’s something quite hypnotic about the sleeting rain in the background and the occasional forks of lightening. Standing in a framework of timber, the reels contain 11 paylines which conversely makes it simultaneously one of the smaller games! You’ll need to set your bet but Magnet Gaming have a structure where you choose the overall bet rather than an amount per payline. Pick from levels 1-10 which offers a total min bet of 0.20 and a max bet of 10.00.
You can move to the paytable by clicking on the button on the top of the screen and this gives you the chance to see the prizes available for matching symbols. The paytable is interactive and responds to your current bet level so the payouts shown are what you could win with the stake you’re playing with. If you want to see how the prizes vary, change your bet and watch the amounts in the paytable instantly update. This can be a useful exercise if you can’t decide how much to bet and want to balance up the risk and reward.
Create Your Stash
Every self-respecting Viking needs a stash of gold and with the bonuses on the reels it’s now time to create yours as you add to any of the basic wins you’ve racked up. In the main game you’ll have a helping hand with both wilds and scatters on the reels. Regular slots players will be familiar with the actions of both of these functions which can help to boost wins. In addition, the wilds which can be found on reels 2 and 4 are expanding, filling the entire reel when they land.
As well as the two progressive jackpots which can be won, there are three bonus games: The Journey, Gold Plunder and The Dark Forest. In the first of these you’ll have to complete a series of challenges to try and beat the terrible sea monster and avoid being turned into fish food. In Gold Plunder, you’ll have to locate and grab as much as gold as possible, but if you uncover red crosses the feature will end. The Dark Forest, meanwhile, is a chilling game of strategy where you’ll need to plot a route through to reach the treasure chest on the other side.

A fun game which is well designed and thought out, like many titles from this developer the range of betting is fairly narrow which may limit its appeal, particularly to those chasing big wins. Nevertheless there are two progressive jackpots which may take some of the sting out of this drawback.
