A new release that’s coming via Pragmatic Play, Vikings vs Trolls will mix fantasy with history, using trolls from one and the Viking warriors from the other. The mix is not a standard one, and I haven’t seen many slots that would do this in the past, but I like what the end result is like.
You’re looking at a game with 4096 ways to win, coming from 6x4 reels, so it’s not a standard setup either. You will encounter along the way some wilds, free spins or up to 4x multipliers. The rewards have the potential to be huge, but for now suffice it to say that each way to win can pay as much as $8,000 during the free spins.
Betting and Prizes
You are going to set up the wager, in such a way that you’re going to get 4096 ways to win active. This will require the use of 50 coins, but you may increase the wager to have as many as 500 coins, while denominations will only go from $0.01 to $0.50. The $5 line bet will automatically decide that the wager is set to $250. The game is played with as little as $0.50 as well though.
The potential of the game appears to be huge, each of the 4096 ways to win being capable of paying 8x the stake for the right combo, and that’s before you even get to the free spins, where up to 4x multipliers are applied. It looks like an impressive game, though I suspect there is some kind of limit in place inside.
The RTP that’s announced in Vikings vs Trolls is 96.01%, which is decent, but not great. They’re giving it a 4 out of 5 score for volatility, so it should be Highly Volatile.
Vikings vs Trolls Slot Features
One of the first things to notice about this game is that it has 6 reels, rather than the usual 5. You form your wins through matching symbols on consecutive reels, which start from either side, either left or right.
The Wild Logo, in gold and red, will be a substitute that’s available on the reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. You can only have it as a replacement for regular symbols.
Other than that, your other major feature in this game will be the scattered Viking Shield, the one with arrows sticking out of it. You get these scatters stacked on the reels, which is slightly unusual. They can appear on all reels, and if there are 10 or more present, you gain access to free spins. To get the maximum of 250 free spins, you need these scatters in at least 20 positions. Add to this huge number of free spins a multiplier that’s chosen at random for each round, between 2x and 4x, and you can see why the slot is considered highly volatile.
Theme & Design
It’s a unique theme, the kind that will mix two common topics and come out with an exciting story. Vikings will face against dangerous trolls in this cartoon-style design. You have male and female Viking warriors, helmets or drinking horns, while from the other side you get the troll and his club. Shields and logos are your feature symbols. I found it an enjoyable enough game, and visually it does its job.
Vikings vs Trolls should be a fun slot machine for many, not just because of its theme or graphics, but in terms of payout potential as well.
