Once you find the sign with two curved white cursors, you are good to go. Click on the sign to trigger all 5 reels with 3 rows. At the bottom of the screen, you will find a Bet section that lets you adjust the total bet according to your needs. You can choose from 20 options that start with €0.25 and end with €75. You can increase the bet up to €150 with the Super Stake option, but more about later in this review.
On the left side, every user can choose from a few different options. For instance, they can activate automated spins. There’s also an option to turn the music on or off. You can modify your bet with the help of the casino chip sign too. Finally, click on the three lines to check the paytable and access settings.
Here, you will find a relatively high number of regular symbols – ten. The Viking Smash video slot has five playing card icons. They look like they were made of silver or metal and feature Viking ornaments. Like the rest of the regular symbols, you can make winning combos by landing three, four, or five playing card icons on consequent reels from left to right or from right to left. The prizes you can expect from these combinations go between 0.2 and 1.4 times your bet.
The epic Sword can help you win prizes worth between 0.48 and 1.6 times your total bet. We also have a special Bow with three arrows that pays between 0.6 and 2 times your bet. Players can get between 0.72 and 2.4 times the bet whenever they land between three and five Flails on adjacent reels. Thanks to the Bearded Axes, one should expect prizes between 0.8 and 4 times the total bet. In the end, there’s the Hammer which pays between 1 and 8 times your total bet. We should also mention that the Wild icons pay 40 times the total bet, but only if you hit five of these icons on adjacent reels.
This is one of the rare games where you can find two Wild icons. They are represented by a Red Viking and a Blue Viking. Their job is to replace all symbols in situations where users can create winning combos. Whenever Wild icons appear on the reels, they will end up on the first or last reel.
After that, they will begin “walking” in the opposite direction. Each move these icons make is a new Re-spin. You will run out of Re-spins once the Wild icons leave the matrix. If the Wild icons are one position apart on the row or next to each other, they will smash together and trigger 10 Viking Smash free spins. If there’s more than one pair of Wilds in positions like this, you will get four more Free Spins for each pair. During the special Free Spins round, the Wild icons can show up on any position, but they will still act as Walking Wilds.
As we said before, this game comes with a Super Stake mode. If you double your bet, you will get more chances of hitting big wins. Also, when this mode is activated, you can get between two and six Wild icons on the matrix after a non-winning spin.
With a Return to Player percentage of 95.6%, the Viking Smash RTP can be described as fair. This is also a medium volatility online slot.
