Travel to the northern European lands, witness the Viking raids, and gamble in the slot for your share in Vikings Ransom.
As the name hints, Vikings Ransom is one of the games that is set up on a Viking theme. Usual warrior elements are present throughout the game right from the background to the symbols. It can be safely said that there is some extent of action in the game for everyone.
The background shows snow-clad mountain peaks with an icy water body in the center. The mobile slot game contains 6 reels and 4 rows, a format that is not quite regular to come across. Along with that, 40 paylines are also a part of the game. A combination of at least 3 matching symbols in a row is required in order to trigger a payout.
The highest potential of the game stops at 200X, which places it on the lower end of the volatile scale. The design and idea of all the icons seem to be inspired by the Norse mythology as a touch of their elements can be found in the symbols.
Gracing the slot are the symbols of card suits that include – spades, clubs, hearts, and diamonds in bright, lively colours.
Along with them, theme-based symbols such as axes, longboats, warriors, Valkyries, hammers, and horns are present on the reels. Among the premium symbols, the warrior or the male Viking is the highest paying one as it gives 5X the stake when a combination of 6 of its kind is formed. The payout is not high but apt for a low-profile game.
A Berserker wild exists in this game, and just like any other game, the Wild card here, does the work of replacing the regular symbols on the slot (except the scatter). It is available in multiple formats, such as a 1X1 regular icon to a larger 2X4 size.
Apart from the wild, a special Reel Link feature exists in the game, which can be activated randomly. The colossal symbols appear on the linked reels next to each other, which can either be the first-second, third-fourth, or fifth-sixth ones. Once the two reels are linked, only then does the landing of colossal symbols can be achieved.
If a lightning bolt appears and strikes the current linked reel, it gets converted into a mega reel, which only hosts the colossal wild cards.
The Scatter symbols feature the classic Viking longboats. Those ship scatters must be present on at least 3 reels on the slot in order to grant the player access to the Berserker Bonus spins as well as the related wild cards. The number of spins per scatter symbol is as follows:
- 3 scatter symbols – 8 free spins
- 4 scatter symbols – 12 free spins
- 5 scatter symbols – 15 free spins
- 6 scatter symbols – 20 free spins
At the end of each such spin, if a wild card is present, it is turned into a Berserker wild, whereas if a colossal symbol is present, it is turned into a Berserker colossal wild. This can be extremely helpful to the player in securing better symbol sets.
Thus, Vikings Ransom is a game that falls in the low variance range and is apt for casual players who enjoy less risky slots with a classic design.
