Swedish online casino games developer Play'n GO proudly announced its title Viking Runecraft has been nominated for prestigious 2017 EGR Game of the Year award.
The game, which hit the market back in April, comes with a vast selection of unique features, designed to enhance an already thrilling and dynamic gameplay.
Viking Runecraft brings an unusual seven-reel seven-row layout with symbols being refilled after each win. As the name suggests, the game draws its inspiration from the Scandinavian mythology. In this thrilling adventure, the players will embark on an unforgettable journey to Valhalla.
The game is level-based and to advance further, you'll need to clear out specific patterns of symbols on the reels.
Each level is connected to one of the Norse Gods (and one Goddess). Thor, Freya, Odin and Heimdall bring different superpowers to the game, and you expect their help on your way.
The list of the game's features includes the Charge of Destruction, Ragnarök free rounds, Runes of Valhall and Gift of the Gods bonuses, where you can win up to 5,000 times your wager.
Upon its release, the game has been very well received by players around the globe, becoming equally popular on both desktop and mobile devices. The recognition of its quality came with the nomination for the highly coveted award, which will be presented at a ceremony scheduled to take palce in London on October 26.
