Viking’s Treasure Slot from NetEnt
Viking’s Treasure is a slot machine game which takes you back to the days when the Scandinavian warriors would create terror across much of Northern Europe. On the reels you’ll find a fearsome Viking warrior, a longboat, battle armor and equipment and a young Viking girl, while various shaped runes also appear.
This NetEnt designed game features a wild symbol with an outsized payout and a free spins bonus round where you’ll get 15 free spins and a 3x multiplier is applied to your wins.
How to Win on Viking’s Treasure
The Viking warrior is the wild symbol and will substitute for every other symbol on the reels apart from the scatter (treasure) symbol. Every time you land a win using this wild, you’ll find a 2x multiplier in place. Land five of these wilds in a row and you’ll receive a generous 10,000 coins as a payout. In fact, even 4 wilds in a row pays 2,500 coins, which still far outweighs any prize triggered by the other symbols.
The highest paying standard symbol is the Viking longboat, worth 1,000 coins for five in a row, while the Viking helmet pays 750 coins. The shield pays 500 coins, while the Viking girl and the Viking girl and the double sided axe are both worth 250 coins. The standard symbols are completed by the runes, each set against a shining white background, these pay between 150 and 100 coins for 5.
Viking’s Treasure Free Spins Feature
The word ‘treasure’ is in the title for a reason, as a handful of treasure acts as the bonus symbol, promising entry to the feature, where even more treasure is available. Before you even enter the feature, you’ll receive a win when landing two or more scatter symbols across any of the reels, starting at 2x your total stake for just 2 scatters, rising all the way to 500x your total stake for the maximum 5.
Three or more scatters also sees immediate entry into the free spins feature. You’ll have fifteen free spins in total and each win will see a 3x multiplier applied – giving you a lot of potentially big wins (the top prize for 5 wilds is now a huge 30,000 coins). As an added bonus, you’ll re-trigger the feature if you land another 3 or more scatters, the 15 additional spins are simply added to the current total.
Cartoon Nordic Design
Despite the somewhat serious war-like theme, the game is designed in a cartoon style, although not with the same humorous approach you might find at other NetEnt games. The only animation comes when you land a win with the wild symbol, the Viking’s head moving back as lightning pierces the sky. The rune symbols stand out, while the spinning of the reels is really high speed, the symbols passing by in a blur. The accompanying soundtrack is an eerie affair, with the creaking of the wood of the long boat giving the game a slightly haunting feel.
You’ll find 15 colorful win line indicators either side of the reels, these 15 win lines therefore coming at a minimum spin cost of 15 credits. To set the stake you’ll choose both the bet level (ranging between 1 and 5) and the coin value (ranging between 2c and 50c). Options available are sound settings, where you can turn both the sound effects and the ambient sound on and off and the auto play, where you can set the slot to play automatically for between 10 and 1,000 spins.
Viking’s Treasure is an entertaining game that doesn’t really reach the heights of many of the other slots in the NetEnt range. This is mainly due to the fact that the slot offers no real originality – the single wild and the free spins feature being almost standard across a many NetEnt slots. Nevertheless, Viking’s Treasure will appeal to those who enjoy solid historical themed slots and the free spins feature is one which could potentially act as a boost to your bankroll.
