Team up with a group of fierce Viking warriors, arm yourself with a hammer and a lance, and get ready to have an epic adventure! The great fiery drake is guarding a legendary treasure of the Norse gods, and you just might be the hero that will wrestle the shiny gold from the clutches of the awe-inspiring beast. This is a review of the “Viking’s Gods Gold” video slot by Booongo.
The pantheon of Nordic gods is large and varied, a sort of big dysfunctional family. Everyone in it is related to everyone else, and the petty grudges, conflicts, and romance have been brewing for centuries, never to be fully resolved until Ragranök, the end of the world as we know it.
The Allfather, the ruler of gods and men, is the one-eyed Odin, a wise and fearsome ruler, the god of wisdom, death, poetry, and gallows. He is served by two wolves and two ravens and rides an eight-legged steed named Sleipnir. Odin is married to Frigg, the great goddess who knows the future.
The other very important god is Thor, the wielder of the magic hammer Mjollnir, the god of war and thunder, who relentlessly fights the forces of evil and protects Asgard, the city of the gods.
Freya is the goddess of love and beauty, the Norse equivalent of Venus. She is associated with riches, fertility, and magic. Her chariot is pulled by cats, and her cloak is made of falcon feathers.
The last but not the least to be mentioned here is Loki, the trickster, the mischief maker, the magician and the father of the most terrible monsters of the Norse world: the great serpent Jörmungandr that lies deep in the waters of the world ocean, the horrible wolf Fenrir who will devour the Sun and Moon at the end of days, and the goddess of death, Hel, who rules the icy underworld.
“Viking’s Gods Gold” is a medium-variance, 5-reel, 4-row video slot with 50 paylines.
The lower-level symbols are the four Viking shields with the symbols of Clubs, Spades, Diamonds, and Hearts. The higher-paying symbols are the six comical Viking characters and a large chest of gold.
The Wild symbol is the fearsome fire-breathing dragon that is guarding a pile of gold. This symbol can substitute for any other one except for the Scatter. The great beast can appear on any reel, so keep your eyes open!
Free Spins Feature
The Free Spins are activated when three scatter symbols appear on the first, third, and fifth reel. The magic Mjollnir, Thor’s hammer, gives you 10 free spins to start with. You can then win additional free spins if you manage to get yet another combination of three Scatters.
"Vikings God’s Gold" slot is fun, fast, and simple. The caricature Viking portraits that are in contrast with the most Viking-themed games that go for fierce, rugged, realistically depicted characters will surely put a smile on your face.
In terms of gameplay, however, this slot is not what you would call action packed. There is a number of classical special features: Wild symbols, Scatter symbols, and the Free Spins, but no extras on top of that.
