Viking Wilds is one more new game that aims to explore the mythology and history behind the Norse civilization, with the Viking warriors being one of the more popular topics that slot machines have been covering over the years. Obviously, as the title reveals, there will be a certain focus on wild features inside, but that’s not all that you’re going to get from this new Iron Dog slot.
Viking Wilds delivers a decent-sized game area, with 1024 to 3125 active ways to win, over 5 reels. There are free spins, along with regular, sticky and expanding wilds, so quite a few options are available to the player, to hopefully keep him entertained. With an RTP of 96% and a maximum payout of 6,000x the stake ($300,000), it’s a slot which can deliver some very nice surprises.
Betting and Prizes
You might be getting thousands of ways to win, particularly for some features, but your wagers are quite low, going from $0.20 to $50. You set up that bet for all ways to win involved.
As for the rewards, the game’s free spins appear to have the highest potential, paying as much as 6,000x the stake in a single round, with multipliers there to help out. The maximum value of such a prize can reach $300,000. You can also count on the game having a good RTP, of 96%, while the volatility is rated as a 4 out of 5 (medium to high).
Viking Wilds Slot Features
You might’ve guessed yourself, but it’s worth pointing out the Wild part of the game’s name, which tells us a bit about what it’s got to offer before it even loads. Once inside, you will get access to three types of wild symbols.
The regular wilds will appear on the last four reels, and will be used as substitutes which take the place of other symbols, of the regular kind.
The 3rd reel may host sticky wilds, which even after a symbol drop, will move one position down, rather than go away.
Also reserved for the last four reels, the expanding wild will turn entire reels into wilds.
A symbol drop mechanic is available, which means that winning symbols get replaced with others, and this can result in new wins happening during the same paid spin.
Access to the free spins can be obtained by landing all three types of wilds during a single paid spin. This gives you three keys to collect, and once you have them all, you trigger 12 free spins. Depending on how many expanded reels you got, the number of free spins and the multiplier can go up. At most, the game will deliver 18 free spins and a multiplier which starts at 4x, and may go as high as 10x if you get additional expanding wilds. The reels can expand to have up to 3125 ways to win.
Theme & Design
The Viking theme is incredibly popular, even with all the other slot machines which have already been released for it. You get exciting graphics here, Iron Dog does have the talent required for it, and symbols will range from Royals, to runes, hammers, helmets, shields and an axe. The action appears to be happening in some ice cave, and there are beautifully designed Viking warriors next to the reels. It’s just too bad that we don’t see them as symbols.
Viking Wilds has some excellent features, big potential rewards and a medium to high volatility which is much appreciated by players these days.
