The increasingly popular MegaWays system has now been implemented in a Viking themed online slot, thanks to Blueprint Gaming. The developer obtained the rights to this system from Big Time Gaming, and they’ve quickly launched several slot machines in this space, to try and take advantage. Vikings Unleashed has a lot to offer, so keep reading and find out what you can get from it.
Thanks to its use of 6 reels which can change size to include as many as 7 symbols, the slot will deliver up to117,649 MegaWays, or ways to win as most will call them. You have the option to buy the main feature, which is impressive, but the free spins may be triggered the usual way as well. Other big features which are mentioned will include increasing multipliers, cascading symbols and others.
Betting and Prizes
Your bets will have to be in a rather narrow range, of $0.20 to $10, which allows the casino to keep their exposure limited in a slot machine which delivers huge potential wins. If you want to risk more at a time, you can go for the Feature Buy option, which will cost as much as 100x the stake.
When it comes to the game rewards, there is a cap which the developer has placed, so you can either win up to $250,000, or 50,000x the total stake, depending on which one you reach. Even so, it’s a huge amount to win. The slot’s best paying combinations will offer 50x the stake for each way that they form on.
Another major aspect to discuss in this game is the RTP. It’s going to be at 96.50% usually, which is a good amount already. It goes up if you decide to rely on Feature Buy options though. The RTP will be 96.75% for the option with 5 free spins which costs 25x the stake, 96.89% for the one with 8 spins/50x the stake cost, 96.90% for 10 free spins which cost 75x the stake, and 96.91% for 12 free spins which cost 100x the stake to trigger.
Vikings Unleashed: MegaWays Slot Features
The Megaways system is a known quantity at this point. You get 2 to 7 symbols on each of the 6 reels, at random, and so the number of Megaways varies from a couple of dozen, to more than 117,000.
Wilds and scatters may appear at the top of the middle four reels, which will decide whether you trigger the free spins eventually.
Hammer icons are mystery positions, which are usable when they turn into one random icon.
The best part about the game is the free spins option. You can get it with 4 scatters which appear anywhere in view, and this triggers 12 free spins. You win 5 extra rounds for each scatter that appears on top of that. There is also the Feature Buy option, to get you inside. A Gamble feature can then be used, to give you more free spins and up to 10x multipliers to start with.
Theme & Design
Theme wise, they went with something they knew will get the attention of players. Slowly but surely, I expect most popular themes to be available in slots with Megaways in them. You have the usual mix of warriors, mages and shield maidens, but also Nordic style Royals and other icons. I think you will find it an extremely enjoyable game, visually.
Vikings Unleashed Megaways should be an excellent slot machine for you to check out, if you’re into games using this popular system, or into highly volatile titles.
