- A fun new game with lots of features and great payouts
- One of Iron Dog Studio’s best with stunning graphics too
- A great theme and an all-around excellent choice
Viking Wilds slot from Iron Dog Studios is a new game that’s here to offer you some impressive payouts along with a popular theme of Norse mythology. We’ve seen plenty of slots with this type of theme and it remains popular so expect to see plenty more. You have 1024 ways to win to start off with on the 5 reels, but don’t worry as this can increase as we’ll see. You need to spin the reels to get going and try to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Jack, Queen, King or Ace (lowest value)
- Blue Symbol
- Purple Symbol
- Red Symbol (highest value)
These base symbols in Viking Wilds slot just give you a cash reward, but there are some other symbols to look out for. The first of these is the Wild symbol which substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination. Bare in mind that in only appears on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. This symbol also has a better chance of appearing on tumbles, as I’ll explain shortly. Then there’s the Sticky Wild symbol which also substitutes for all other symbols. As you might expect, this one, when it lands, will stay in place but only when it’s part of a winning combination. It appears only on reel 3, and will tumble down is the symbols below it are destroyed as part of a winning combination. You also have the special keys which are used to unclog the Free Spins Bonus.
Viking Wilds Slot Bonuses and Features
Expanding Wild. This symbol substitutes for all other symbols and will expand to fill the entire reel, even it it’s extended. I can appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 but only as a tumble and during the Free Spins Bonus. You can also only land 1 at a time.
Free Tumble. By this point, you’re probably wondering what a tumble is. Well, whenever a win way pays out, the symbols are destroyed such that all the symbols left fall down. New ones then fall in from above with a better chance of a Wild appearing than usual. If the new symbols then form a win, the same will happen and they’ll be destroyed, forcing new symbols to fall down. There’s no limit to how many times this can happen and each tumble does not count as a new bet.
Free Spins Bonus. If you collect all 3 of the keys during successive tumbles, you’ll activate this Bonus. It’s a nice change from the usual way of triggering a Free Spins Bonus. You’ll be given 12 free spins to begin with. If you have expanded reels on the triggering spin, then you’ll start instead with the following:
- 1 expanded reel gives you 14 free spins with a 2x multiplier.
- 3 expanded reels gives you 16 free spins with a 3x multiplier.
- 5 expanded reels gives you 18 free spins with a 4x multiplier.
Every sticky Wild, expanding Wild or expanded reel will increase the multiplier by 1x. In total, you can have 3125 ways to win compared to 1024 ways to win.
Viking Wilds slot from Iron Dog Studio is actually pretty impressive. First of all, it looks very good. The graphics are excellent and the design is nice and detailed. The features are equally impressive. Having symbols tumble down makes things interesting, and it’s great that this is used to trigger the Free Spins Bonus which can provide some nice multipliers and ultimately offer up to 6,000x your total stake on a single spin. Tot top it all off, there are lots of ways to win which can increase too. I think it’s fun, rewarding and great-looking so I highly recommend checking it out and leaving a comment down below to let us know what you think.
