It’s only recently that I started to watch the History Channel’s series Vikings, but I’m happy that I did. Besides the series being absolutely incredible with a great storyline and even greater characters, it also comes in handy now NetEnt published the first content regarding the Vikings™ video slot which was already announced during ICE 2018. Keep your shields and axes ready!
Rumour has it that NetEnt’s third branded slot this year will be launched on 22nd November, bringing one of the most popular TV series to the reels! All Vikings and NetEnt slot fans, it’s time to get ready for the biggest slot spectacle brought to the online casinos this year! In no time, you’ll find your favourite Vikings characters on the reels with, obviously, Ragnar Lothbrok in the spotlights!
The next new branded NetEnt video slot will be inspired by the popular TV series Vikings from the creator and Executive Producer Michael Hirst which airs on HISTORY®. The series follows the exploits of a famous Norse clan from the dark ages in Scandinavia as they aim to successfully invade England and France.
In this highly-anticipated video slot, you’ll find Ragnar Lothbrok on the reels as one of the best-known legendary Norse heroes. It’s this former farmer that rises to fame by the successful raids into England and France. He eventually becomes a Scandinavian king with the support of his family and fellow warriors.
This family saga, just as the upcoming Vikings™ video slot, tells the remarkable tales of the lives and epic adventures of the raiders and explorers of the Dark Ages and thanks to the series, the world of the Vikings is brought back to life! Follow Ragnar Lothbrok as the greatest hero of his age and experience how the fearless warrior himself, as well as Ragnar’s band of Viking brothers and his family, rise to become King of the Viking tribes.
Henrik Fagerlund, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, said: “To be able to provide our players with a different genre of branded game, showcases the hard work we’re putting in behind the scenes to create such high-quality content and further expand our portfolio. Vikings has quickly become a TV favourite since the first season in 2013 and appeals to a vast audience worldwide. It’s a classic and historical theme packed with action and we’re sure the players will be looking forward to the launch later this year.”
What the Vikings™ video slot will look like
Rumour has it that NetEnt’s third branded slot this year will be launched at the NetEnt Casinos on 22nd November, bringing one of the most popular TV series to the reels! All Vikings and NetEnt slot fans, it’s time to get ready for the biggest slot spectacle brought to the online casinos this year! In no time, you’ll find your favourite Vikings characters on the reels with, obviously, Ragnar Lothbrok in the spotlights!
But before you get to the main game, we’ll see The Seer welcoming you to the game as a curious visitor. And curious you should be when a great series as Vikings is brought to the reels. Even though you’re being welcomed by the Viking’s most handsome character, the Oracle of Kattegat, who can communicate with the gods and answer questions about the future and one’s fate in life, your video slot future remains unknown! The only message you’ll get is “Stones and Bones”, whatever that may mean!
For the Vikings™ video slot’s gameplay, we need no fortune teller. And if we do, there’s no better fortune teller than myself! All I need is the video slot preview available on NetEnt’s YouTube channel to tell you what to expect from the Vikings™ video slot as soon as it will be available at the NetEnt Casinos from the 22nd of November.
I know that the Vikings™ video slot won’t offer any bet lines, for example, as there will be 243 ways to win! I’ve seen a Hot Spot Win feature in the Joker Pro™ slot, but the Vikings™ video slot will bring the Hotspot Feature. The “opening scene” relates the Hot Spots to the Scatter Pays and that’s where my search for the Vikings™ video slot’s future starts. The Hotspot feature is exactly what it says that it is, a video slot feature with a Hotspot. I can see one win with a Hotspot in the middle, but I can’t figure out if this Hotspot continues to change or that the middle reel is the standard Hotspot. “Seer, what is your idea here?” The answer: “Stones and Bones”. Thanks Seer!
What about the Shield Wall feature? That’s a piece of cake as it looks obvious that this video slot feature is going to be completely random and when activated, a shield wall will appear. Having a better look, the reason this shield wall appears might be because the only type of symbols that appeared were letters and numbers. These offer the lowest payouts and during both, no winnings combinations were formed until the shield wall appeared. However, this wasn’t the case during the Raid Spins mode, so random after all? “Seer, what is your idea here?” The answer: “Stones and Bones”. Thanks Seer!
This Raid Spins mode, what is this all about? “Seer, what is your idea here?” The answer is “Stones and Bones”. Thanks Seer! I better figure this one out by myself as well. It’s not long after we see the Vikings™ video slot being replaced by the Vikings Touch®, the mobile version, that three Raid Spins symbols appear on reel 3,4, and 5 that the Raid Spins mode is activated. We don’t need The Seer to predict that this Raid Spins mode is offering three Hotspots as the preview video’s description did this already.
During the Raid Spins mode, the excitement gets ramped up even more with the game changing to a 7-reel, 5-row, and a dazzling 78 125 ways to win! Again I can’t figure out where these three Hotspots are located. Seer….ah never mind! Let’s just wait for the Vikings™ video slot to appear at the NetEnt Casinos to find out what it is exactly that makes the Raid Spins mode such a slot spectacle! It won’t be ages before it’s time to join your favourite Vikings character to plunder the reels for your own fortune! Seers? Ahhh never mind!
