Tiki Vikings Is The Newest Slot From JFTW and Microgaming
A new slot machine has been designed for Microgaming by JFTW (Just For The Win), as an exclusive title. Its name is Tiki Vikings, obviously, and it comes from the same company that offered us Shogun of Time, Rockabilly Wolves or Ruby Casino Queen.
Coming from a land where palm trees and pineapples are the norm, these Tiki Vikings are going back to their home, and they offer you all the excitement you could need via 5 reels with 20 active lines. Those giving the slot a chance will experience features which include Symbol Upgrades and Symbol Lock Re-Spins.
The game has as high value symbols these Vikings, brothers and all of them bearded. From coconuts to flowers, the decorations you see around are not typical for a Viking themed slot machine, so you definitely get the tropical vibe from it.
Should you create a new win which involves one of the Viking high symbols, the game will deliver a feature called Symbol Lock Re-Spin. As the name suggests, the winning symbols get locked in their position, after which a re-spin will follow, and potentially more, if new symbols of that type appear.
At the same time, the game has a meter which will start filling up in time. Once you get three spins with locked symbols in consecutive order, a feature called Symbol Upgrade will trigger. The locked symbols are upgraded then, to the next high value icon on the paytable. Combining these two main features helps make Tiki Vikings a game with great potential.
Tiki Vikings is available at operators of Microgaming’s platform, starting from August 7th, 2019.
According to a Microgaming representative, this game is original and very entertaining, something that JFTW managed to offer in the past as well. Two themes which are very common were merged into one, for Tiki Vikings. The result is a game which is lots of fun, colorful and with excellent mechanics.
The JFTW CEO also commented at the game’s launch, calling it a wacky mashup, which those working on it loved. They had fun creating the characters and telling the story of these Vikings which are coming back from a tropical vacation.
