- A great medium-variance slot that’s fun to play
- A common concept that’s expanded on well
- Won’t appeal to everyone, but very well made all the same
Tiki Vikings slot from JustForTheWin is a simple slot that takes a fairly common feature seen in other slots and adds something that makes it kind of special. I’ll go into more detail on the features and exactly how they work shortly though, for now let’s talk about the basics.
When it comes to the design, it’s quite a fun one and a more original take on the Viking theme. The colours and nice and fun, and the layout is clean and appealing with good graphics. There are 5 reels here with 3 rows, giving you 20 paylines to work with. You need to get a winning combination from left to right along these to get a payout. You do this using the base symbols which are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Jack or Queen (lowest value)
- King or Ace
- Blue Viking
- Green Viking
- Red Viking
- Tiki Vikings Logo (highest value)

Symbol Lock Respin. Whenever the higher value symbols (those above ace) form a winning combination, they will lock into spin and a respin will commence. Additional symbols that are the same as these ones will also lock in place for the respin. If more of the same symbols land, then they will lock into place and another respin will start. For every respin that leads to at least 1 symbol locking in place, the upgrade meter will start to increase. Obviously, when no more respins are to be had, the feature ends, or this happens when there are no more unlocked symbols. Payouts are made at the end of the feature.
Symbol Upgrade. So what’s the significance of the symbol upgrade meter I hear you ask. When, once you fill it up, all of the locked symbols will then upgrade to the next highest value symbol up, resetting the meter. Note that the highest value symbol in the game, the logo, cannot be upgrade.
Tiki Vikings slot from JustForTheWin has only one feature really, but it can be a very useful one and lead to decent payouts. The whole aim of the game here is to get a winning combination using the higher value symbols, i.e the Vikings or the logo, to trigger respins by locking the symbols in place. This in itself can be quite valuable, although it is something that quite a few other slots have done already. What’s interesting here though is that by filling the meter you can upgrade the symbols, helping you get some much bigger wins. The meter fills up relatively quickly which is nice, and wins are quite frequent making this a medium variance slot. It’s quite fun and a nice idea, but I think another feature would be nice, or even a free spins bonus. However, I can certainly see the appeal for players looking at lower variance slots than those like megaways and if that’s you, you should probably check it out.
