Viking Quest might be a slot machine that is inspired by the Nord warriors of Medieval Europe, but thanks to its main characters you actually get the idea that it immortalizes some sort of school play, where young kids are playing the roles of warriors, jokers or fair maidens. The game’s design style is not one that I’m a fan of. The game includes huge symbols among the regular ones, plus features like free spins, a bonus game, scatters and wilds. You can win as much as $200,000, that amount being offered by one of the bonus games.
Betting and Prizes
Viking Quest slot lets you decide only on the stake per line, so you are working with 40 fixed paylines otherwise. You can modify the stake as needed though, starting at just $0.01 and being able to reach $10. The maximum bet possible in the game is worth $400.
The slot’s best reward is mentioned in a bonus game, which is capable of returning your stake per line up to 20,000 times, which should mean a maximum value of $200,000. Regular combinations offer 1,000x or less, so up to $10,000.
Viking Quest Slot Features
First of all, let’s take a look at the most common feature, the wild. It is used in this game as well, and as usual it will be capable of rewarding you with new combinations when it lands in just the right position. It also forms combinations directly, and pays up to 1,000x.
Viking Quest slot has something else that is special, which is a Mega Icon. Some of the symbols can appear in 2x2 sized variants, so you basically get blocks of 4 matching symbols, hopefully increasing the odds of getting you paid.
Mega Icons can be scatters as well, and if you get one showing then you will receive a feature with free spins. You can get up to 16 free spins, depending on how many scatter symbols are in place. The free spins get only mega icons on the last four reels, while the first one has regular icons.
Gone Fishing appears to be one the most rewarding features in use here, and to trigger it you will need a mega icon with the image of a salmon on it. Each icon position which is occupied by this scatter will bring you a cast of the fishing rod. You can get up to 16 casts this way, and you can win anywhere between 40x and 4,000x the stake per line.
Chest of Fortune is the feature that offers you the top jackpot, of 20,000x. You need a treasure chest mega icon, and you get to choose one of the chests that are showing. Inside, you will find your prize, which starts at 80x and can go up to 20,000x.
Theme & Design
The design style is not one that I love, or even enjoy. The way the kids are designed makes them look like characters in a low quality animation movie. Plus, a school play with Vikings in it is nowhere near as fun to look at as a real game with fierce warriors.
Viking Quest might not be a true Viking themed slot machine, but it can offer some good prizes in the right circumstances, plus the mega icons are kind of interesting.
