Bob the Epic Viking Quest Slot from NetEnt
You’ll see from the title of this slot that it’s all about a Viking named Bob. However, it’s clear that Bob is no normal Viking, as Bob is an ‘epic’ Viking, which really sets him apart from your average Norseman.
Bob himself makes an appearance on the reels alongside Viking paraphernalia such as his helmet, his doubled sided axe and his shield. Bob himself acts as a bonus symbol, which activates a pick-me round, while a golden longboat is another scatter symbol where you’ll gain free spins which see the addition of a very nice multiplier.
How to Win on Bob the Epic Viking Slot
The highest paying symbol of all is the wild, which is easily identifiable due to the symbol simply comprising of the word ‘wild’. If you manage to land five of these symbols in a row you’ll win an impressive 7,500 coins, while even four in a row is worth the second highest payout of 2,000 coins. This wild, will of course, also substitute for any other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter.
The Viking helmet is next on the pay table and pays 500 coins for the maximum five, while both the axe and the shield have a top payout of 250 coins. The standard symbols are completed by the playing cards A, K, Q, J and 10, which pay between 125 and 75 for the maximum five in a row.
Bob the Epic Viking Slot Features
To activate the first bonus game you’ll need to land three Bob symbols from left to right on a win line. You’ll now head to a different screen showing a chamber with a series of symbols adorning the walls. You’ll now pick each of these to hopefully reveal a sword, as each sword picked will uncover a credit amount. Keep picking those swords and the win amount will continue to increase, however eventually you’ll reveal an intertwining symbol which means the feature is now over. At this point, all of your preceding wins will be added together and head towards your bankroll.
The golden Viking longboat is a scatter symbol. You’ll receive an immediate payout when two or more of these scatters appear on the reels, starting at just 2x your total stake for the minimum two, up to 100x your total stake for the maximum five. As well as this scatter payout, you’ll also receive 10 free spins when three or more scatters appear on the reels. These free spins are much more profitable than the spins in the base game, as every win is subject to a 3x multiplier. As well as this, if you manage to land three scatters throughout the free spins, you’ll re-trigger an additional ten free spins.
Cartoon Viking Design and Setup
The game has an appealing cartoon style design, Bob the Epic Viking himself the standout character, looking a little like he might have made an appearance directly from the famous Asterix comics. The game is set against the backdrop of the sky, with Viking dwellings on craggy hillsides to the left, while Valhalla hangs down from the sky to the right. Graphically, the game is at its best when you enter the bonus feature. The game is accompanied by a resounding background theme tune throughout, doing a great job of adding atmosphere to the game.
This NetEnt designed game has the very familiar 5×3 configuration found in the majority of online slots. You’ll find a total of 25 win lines and you’ll have the opportunity to play each spin for 25, 50, 75 or 100 credits. Options at the slot include an auto play feature, where you can set the slot to spin for between 10 and 1,000 spins without interruption, a mute button and a feature preview option, where you can see exactly how the pick me feature plays out before you land it.
Bob the Epic Viking is an enjoyable game from the very start. The bright graphics give the slot a fresh appeal, while Bob himself adds a nice level of humor to the game. With two separate features, the gameplay is engaging throughout, with some good win amounts certain to head your way when entering either of these bonus games. The game may not quite live up to the ‘epic’ status, however it will be ideal for a slot session or two.
