Of late the news broke that the elite software developer was working on a Vikings slot, everyone was eager to see and play the game that NetEnt was about to come up with.

Of late the demand for this slot game has electrified in past weeks in anticipation of the release. NetEnt has released Vikings now and fans of the show will happy to enjoy it.
True To the Show
As the slot is inspired by the characters of the show in its iconography, it starts as a five-reel slot game, where you will have massive 243 ways to win. You just need to get three of the same symbols in one of the many pay lines to receive a payout. Card symbols are the low-paying symbols which you should be aware of.
Players need to aim to score for one of the four Vikings characters that are featured in the slot. Bjorn, Lagertha, Floki, and Ragnar are all depicted in the game. All four characters trigger the same payouts in the basic game. The best part is – the Vikings logo which is available – and it is the most prominent and valuable symbol that pays out 50 times the original stake if five logos turn up.
Apart from this, there are several interesting features in this NetEnt slot game and Hotspot bonus if just one of them. The game assigns one part of the reel towards the Hotspot zone. It means that if you get one of the top Viking symbols in the hotspot zone, all the remaining Viking symbols will automatically change into the higher symbols. The more symbols you will collect, the higher the payout will become going up to as much as 243x the original stake.
In addition to the Hotspot, the Shield Wall feature also happens occasionally. When it is stimulated, a part of the reels transforms into a single symbol and is then scored. Now combining that with automatic play and variable betting will give you a good chance at winning.
