Vikings are a generous theme for many developers and we are quite surprised that the slot developers don’t use it more. After all, using the horned helmets, Drakkars and other unforgettable Viking things surely wouldn’t be bad. Kajot probably came to the realization that it has a chance to interest in this theme and it took their chance very well. Their Vikings game plays great and it looks very good.
The Game’s visuals
We’ve closed one eye over Kajot’s game several times before, because, let’s be honest, mainly their older models don’t really make the mark when it comes to graphics. But the Vikings game is a bit different. The northern warriors in this slot machine look very good. The graphics and music are well-made. It’s worth mentioning that when we first turned on the machine, we thought it was a competitor’s online slot from SYNOT Games. And those that know the visuals of their games will agree with us that it’s a very positive assumption. On top of the fact that it is a graphically very advanced slot, the Vikings kept all the good parts from the other Kajot slot machines. The only thing we could criticize about the visuals is the static appearance. A bit more dynamics would be nice.
Basic game properties
As we’ve mentioned before, Kajot's slot machine template is hard to miss. The authors got the maximum out of it and so the slot machine not only looks good but it also has pleasant controls and good gameplay. All of the control elements are exactly where you’re used to having them on Kajot slots and so don’t expect any frustration from not knowing your way around the new template and having to get used to a new menu layout and things like that. The basis is common. 5 reels, 3 rows, and up to 20 fixed winning lines. A nice average. But it’s more than enough to have fun.
Of course, there’s an option to set the maximum bet, the value of the coins being bet, selecting the height of your bet and if you don’t want to constantly be clicking, you can use the autoplay function. As part of autoplay, you can select the number of spins. There are several options available including never-ending spinning.
Bonus elements of the slot machine
The Vikings aren’t afraid of bonuses and there are quite a few of them. Kajot didn’t disappoint its reputation and so they’ve added a bit of creativity into the bonuses. Kajot can mainly play with the Wild symbols and this time is no exception. The Wild symbol takes the role of a joker and helps by substituting the missing symbols and finishing winning combinations. It can do other things as well. When the Wild is part of a winning combination, the win gets multiplied by 2-times. If you have two Wild symbols in a winning line, it multiplies the win by 4 and with three symbols it’s 8-times. If you get a winning line made up of four Wild symbols, your win will be multiplied up to 16-times. Amazing. This feature entertained us until the end of our review.
What kinda conquerors would the Vikings be if they were satisfied with just a little. That’s why the authors also integrated a Scatter symbol. Don't be afraid, it’s not just going to be an immediate win such as with the Joker Strong slot machine. Here, it’ll bring you free spins. And in order to take part in these, you need at least 3 Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels. If you manage that you’ll get 10 free spins. The creativity doesn’t end here either. You’ll be pleased to know that during the free spins, when you get a winning combination, it stays fixed on the reels until the next round. Respectively, until the round where no new winning combination shows up on the reels or the current one doesn’t get expanded. This is an interesting concept and it can get the heart running. Once again we’re giving a good pat on the helmet to the authors.
Summary of the Vikings slot
We really enjoyed the Viking adventures. In the beginning, we were a bit skeptical against this slot but it quickly showed us that we were wrong. It’s a refreshing machine full of clever bonuses, pleasant graphics, and fun. Spin the reels and let a bit of northern mystique breathe on you.
