In late November 2018, NetEnt released the hugely popular Vikings slot game, based on the TV series Vikings. It's based on the Vikings series, which is well-known in South Africa and has been on TV since 2013.
The TV series (and the slot) focuses on the life of a Viking named Ragnar Lothbrok. At the beginning of the series, he is a farmer and father of two. However, his mind and heart are drawn to raiding expeditions to England. He recently becomes king and the series follows the lives of other Vikings.
The story is based on real life and a real historical figure. Of course, a lot of liberties have been taken in the series, as the exact details of the issues and the story are of course not clear. However, the Viking raids in England and France are real events from history books.

How to play at
The slot has five reels and three rows. Coins are awarded whenever the same symbol appears on at least three adjacent reels, viewed from the left. There are up to 243 ways to win in total.
The minimum bet is just €0.20 and the maximum bet is up to €100, with coin values ranging from €0.10 to €0.50. The game has a 96.05% payback percentage, which is a typical percentage for NetEnt games. So there are really nice wins to be had.
Vikings theme and graphics
As this is a game based on a TV series, it features the main characters from the series. The game is set in a snowy landscape where it is slowly snowing. The atmosphere is quite peaceful - at least at first.
The reels have familiar faces from the series, and the symbols fit the series and the Viking theme. Even the bloody trails are present in the game to add detail to the game. Overall, the graphics are really excellent and detailed, as is typical of NetEnt games.
The symbols include the familiar 10, J, Q, K and A. These symbols can be used to grab yourself some small wins. The more valuable symbols, however, are the familiar characters from the series, all of which are of equal value.
On the reels are Ragnat, Lagertha, Björn and Loki. These symbols can also appear on the reels in full reel sizes. The biggest wins of all can be grabbed with a big V, which of course symbolises the word "Vikings". There's also a scatter, which you can use to activate the free spins.
Vikings special features
There are many special features included in Vikings. One of them is the Hot Spot, where symbols can change in the middle of a spin to bring you more wins. During the base game, the hot spot reel is the middle one.
If a three-pattern high pattern snaps into the hotspot, the other Viking symbols on the reel will change to this symbol. You will usually get more wins for this.
Another special feature is the Race Wall, which is a randomly triggered feature. It runs during both the base game and the free spins. Mystery symbols are revealed under the shields and it can hit anywhere on the reels.
Loots, on the other hand, mean free spins. These are triggered by three scatters that say "Raid Spins". These symbols appear during the base game on reels 3-5. During spins, there are 7 reels and up to 5 rows. Instead, there are 78,125 ways to win!
The Hotspot feature is also present during the free spins. It looks a little different during the free spins though. The hotspot is still in the middle, but during free spins, the hotspot, the size of three symbols, is in the middle of the first three reels. If a scythe symbol lands on this spot, you'll be in for a big payout.
All in all, Vikings slot is a really fun game to enjoy on a small or large stake. The special features are very entertaining and you can win big with the right symbols.
Vikings is one of NetEnt's most popular slot games. The reason for this is not only the popularity of the TV series, but also the fact that it is a really high-quality game. NetEnt has done a great job and the game is sure to bring glory to the series.
