Vikings is a popular theme for all kind of games, both for computer games and slots. The Vikings lived in areas like Sweden, Norway and Denmark from around A.D. 750 to the 11th century. The Vikings were not civilized and were looking for riches in other countries. For several decades Vikings made raids against coastal targets like Ireland and Scotland. An interesting fact we discovered after making research on Vikings was that, they didn’t have horn in their helmets, it’s a myth. Even if they didn’t wear horns, Vikings are still very fascinating.
The game provider Yggdrasil has had great success with the amusing Viking games, Vikings go Wild, Vikings go to Hell and Vikings go Berzerk. Of course, we were excited and glad when we heard that NetEnt finally creates a Viking game! Read our full Vikings Slot Review below.
The game is based on the popular TV series Vikings, written and created by Michael Hirst. The series are recorded on Ireland and are inspired by the stories of Ragnar Lodbok, one of the most notorious Vikings who visited France and Britain.
* We recommend you to see the TV- series VIKINGS.
About the symbols & more:
Vikings are 5×3 reel slot but have 7×5 reels during Freespins-mode. The game has no classical pay lines. If 3 or more identical symbols land anywhere on subsequent reels, you will get a win. Vikings consist of 10 symbols, 5 premium with higher value and 5 with a lower value. The premium symbols in the game are on characters from the tv-show.
The lower-valued symbols are like in many games A, K, Q, J and 10. These lower valued symbols are in silver color and have blood spots. We will take a look at the 3 features in the game, Hot Spots, Shield Wall and Raid Spins.
The third reel is surrounded by some kind of electric flow, it’s a Hotspot. When a stacked Viking symbol lands on and entirely cover the third reel, all the other Viking symbols will become that particular symbol. (All premium symbols will turn into the symbol on the Hotspot. The symbols don’t need to connect, it’s called scatter pays.)
In the main game and in Freespins-mode , a wall of Viking shields will randomly appear and on random areas on the reels. The shields will reveal a premium symbol and wins are given.
If you get a Raid Spin-shield on 3:rd, 4th and 5th reel you will get 7 Raid Spins (freespins). The game field will expand and instead of 1 Hotspot there will be three.

NetEntCasinoNoDepositBonus has tested the game. At first, it was slightly boring but it got more fun after playing it for a while. We were a bit unlucky and it took us forever to get the RAID SPINS. It was worth the effort. We really like that the game field increases when you receive your 7 free spins, it creates a special Bonus-feeling. The graphics are good. There are lovely Viking-items like shields, spears, and ravens in the game. The sound is nice and the sound-effects include some exciting and strange “Viking- roars”.
There are a lot of “Viking-gadgets” in the game but it could have been even more. A couple of nice footages with high NetEnt quality graphics would have been a great complement to the game. NetEnt’s Vikings are completely different from the Viking games from Yggdrasil, therefore we found it hard to tell if the Viking-games from Yggdrasil is better or worse.
Overall Vikings is an OKAY game, that we sometimes will play for shorter periods. We give it a weak 4-star rating. The game is available at most NetEnt Casinos. Plunder, have fun and enjoy your RAID SPINS!
