Viking Voyage Slots

Our history remembers individual explorers. Cristopher Columbus and Amerigo Vespucci are well known names, but they were very much the oddballs of their cultures. For the Vikings, meanwhile, sailing on a ship and exploring distant lands is a must! We embark on one such voyage with Betsoft in search of great prizes and eternal glory. Viking Voyage is played on a 5x3 board with 10 fixed paylines. This slot has two special features to keep an eye out for. First is Wild, which can substitute for any win; including Raven Scatter! When it appears fully stacked, a free re-spin is awarded. The second one is a Viking boat on the reels 1 and 5. It awards 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier!

How to Play

The thrill of adventure is strong in this game! You can see it in the background, with a Viking fleet sailing in open waters. We were also pleasantly surprised to see it animated! The waves move about, swaying the ships on top of them. Occasionally, you’ll see a few birds flying past and disappearing behind the reels. You play this release on a 5-reel board, where each reel is three symbols tall. To win, you have to collect three or more identical icons in adjacent positions, starting with the leftmost reel. All wins must follow one of the currently active paylines, or else the cash prize won’t be awarded.

Betting Options and Payout

Setting your total bet is done by tapping the plus and minus buttons. This allows you to sort through all available wagers to pick your favourite. There’s no need to bother with individual coin values or changing the number of active paylines. What you see is what you get! Players can stake between $0.10 and $10 on each spin. Viking Voyage has high volatility and an RTP of 96.12%, which is slightly above the current industry average. According to the software provider, the maximum prize you can win in this slot is $4,713.15. This comes out as just above 470x your total stake, which is an abysmal reward for a high variance game.

Symbols and Extra Features

Available symbols include playing card royals as standard value symbols. Viking axes, helmets and golden cups form the mid value icons. And three Viking explorers are the high value symbols! The Viking King is Wild, while the raven is a Scatter. The long boat is a bonus used to trigger free spins. If the ship appears on the first and fifth reel at the same time, it awards 10 free spins. During extra turns, all wins are multiplied by 3x, making each win super valuable! If you can afford to pay 70x your total bet, you can also buy 12 free spins directly. The price is brought down by finding golden coins on the board. You can bring down the price all the way to zero! Stacked Wild activates a free re-spin. If another stacked Wild appears during the first re-spin, another re-spin is awarded.

Our Verdict

It looks great and feels even better to play! Our only gripe is the low maximum prize, which doesn’t suit the volatility one bit. Until that’s fixed, we’re afraid Viking Voyage will be just shy of perfection.
