Viking’s Treasure is an online video slot by NetEnt, which will take players on a venturesome journey with the Vikings in search of rich treasures. As the title indicates, the theme of this slot is centred on the sights, sounds, tools and people of the Viking age. The graphics are neat and simple, the game symbols are depicted in a cartoonish fashion and definitely stay true to ancient Nordic imagery.
The background sounds take you aboard some ancient Viking ship, with creaking wood sounds interspersed with the rattle of chains and a rather dark laughing sound.Winning combinations are accompanied by a burst of music and the slicing clang of a sword against a shield. A tribal-drumming sound ensues when you land 3 or more scatters triggering the Free Spins mode.
The slot features 5 reels and just 15 adjustable paylines, so it’s a brilliant choice for low rollers or beginners who can place bets from as little as 2 pence/cents. Despite the lack of a progressive jackpot, a massive fixed jackpot is available in the base game and the treasure of a lifetime can be collected in the free spins round where wins are trebled.
The Wild is represented by a Viking’s head and doubles the payouts when in use, resulting in even more rewarding prizes. You need this 5 of these symbols to obtain the maximum fixed jackpot. The Wild can replace all regular game symbols except for scatters to create high paying combinations. The hand holding golden coins represents the scatter. This is an important symbol awarding instant prizes of up to 500 times the total bet when 2 or more appear, but it will also trigger the free spin round when 3 or more appear on the reels.
The highest payout during the base game is a quite hefty 10,000 coins, which is awarded when 5 Wild symbols appear on a payline. Despite the lack of a progressive jackpot, triple winnings can be enjoyed in the free spin round, where one will have the chance to collect as many as 450,000 coins.
Not a bonus feature as such, but something that players will enjoy very much is in this game is the free spins round. Triggered by 3 or more scatters, it will grant at least 15 free spins. The most exciting aspect is that all payouts are triplicated, which means that the base game jackpot is now worth 30,000 coins. If this combination appears in every single free spin, one will walk away with the maximum prize of 450,000 coins. The Free Spins round can be retriggered round by landing another 3 scatters, which will add 15 more spins to the game.
