Viking Age is easily one of BetSoft Gaming’s most visually appealing video slots. What we have here is a slot machine which delivers unconditionally when it comes to 3D graphics and animation. Yes, certain aspects of the theme are very Asterix, but there can be no denying that Viking Age is its own story. The slot machine contains plenty of your usual Norsemen imagery, including axes, longboats, runes and shields, although they have never looked as good as they do in this non-progressive online slot.
The wagering buttons get a little lost in the backdrop of this slot, but if you look closely at the boulders before the gorgeous Viking shield maiden’s feet, you will see them. These allow you to alter the 30 lines in the game, as well as adjust your coin values and your line bet. Like most BetSoft Gaming slots, Viking Age is going to cost you between 60p per spin, and £150 per spin.
The Viking accessories can offer up cash prizes which range from 5 coins up to 200 coins. It is the Vikings themselves which are worth considerably more. The two Viking warrior symbols could see you pocket between 20x and 300x your total bet, depending on how many you land on a pay line, and which symbol that is. This is a non-progressive prize, of course.
The rune stone symbol is a pretty decent icon to land 3 or more times on the reels. Doing so will trigger the Rune stone Bonus. This feature takes us closer to the Viking shield maiden. Her name is Amma, and she will reward you with either instant cash prizes, free spins, or provide you access to the slot’s proper bonus feature.
Amma herself acts as a free spin symbol in this slot. Should player land 3 of her in any position on the screen at once, they will trigger a free spins feature. Multiplier Spinners can be added to the free spins bonus, which will provide players with a more than agreeable multiplier for their winnings. Remember, you can trigger this via the Rune stone Bonus, too.
The arm-locked Viking symbol can also trigger a bonus. Players will need to land at least 3 of these symbols on the reels to bag that bonus.
There are no wild symbols present in Viking Age. This is the only negative thing that can be picked up on in this BetSoft Gaming developed slot. That being said; BetSoft are not exactly known for their wilds.
Arm Wrestling Bonus
As we’ve said, the main bonus feature is triggered via the arm-locked Viking symbol. You can also trigger it via the Rune stone Bonus. Once this feature is activated, players will get to choose one of the two Vikings. An arm-wrestling competition will then begin, with the player picking up instant cash prizes based on the success of their competitor.
Viking Age is fun, and it looks terrific. We’re a bit bummed out that there are no wilds in this game, but at least you’re never very far away from a win when playing this slot.
