Playtech took a somewhat different approach to the Viking theme when they created the Viking Mania online slot. Everywhere you come across a Viking or any Viking theme, you always expect them to be portrayed as tough conquerors, but this time round these Vikings has been created in a cartoon like manner, with a funny and entertaining tone.
Viking Mania is a 3D online slot that boasts with immersive display focus and well designed 3D characters.
Viking Mania Interface
This slot is not only eye candy in the sense that the 3D animations are so well designed, but the interface and layout was also well thought through and all players find it easy to navigate around the game.
There is an information tab where you can familiarise yourself with the Viking Mania slot and how to play it. You can also view the paytable to familiarise yourself with winning combinations and more to maximise winnings and strategize on how to play the game. You can also use the auto play function where you preselect the quantity of active lines, and set the amount of automatic spins.
Viking Playtime Bonus Round
If you want to experience the full wrath of Viking Mania, aim to activate the Viking Playtime Bonus round. If you manage to land the war hammer on each of the 5 reels, during the course of the game, every time you find a hammer, one letter of the word “BONUS” jumps out. If you manage to spell the whole word, by triggering a hammer on every reel throughout the game, you will have awakened a beast of a bonus game.
This Viking Mania bonus round will open up in another screen, with one of the Vikings strapped to a target board, outlined with multipliers from 1 to 3.
You now have 6 artilleries and 10 throws to choose from. You can through with menial weapons like chickens, tomatoes, eggs and pottery, or with heavier weaponry like axes and hammers. Your aim is to hit a target with each of the 10 throws. Each of the multipliers you strike will multiply your bet amount, and if you play this right, this bonus round can turn out to be very lucrative indeed.
Free Spin Rounds
One would think that Viking Mania would only have one bonus round, seeing that it is so lucrative, but it surely surprises with more. If you land 3 or more of the Viking Map symbols over any reel on one screen, you will have activated the free spin round where you will be rewarded with 10 free spins, and over and over and above that, all free spin winnings will be multiplied by 3. If you think you have seen all of the fun, keep a look out for the Wild symbol in this bonus round. Viking Mania’s Wild symbol, the Viking chief, will also make random appearances in the free spin rounds in order to replace other symbols to complete winning combinations.
Keep in mind that the Wild symbol can replace any other symbol except for the Viking Mania Scatter symbol.
The Scatter symbol dishes out multipliers, so if you manage to land 2 to 5 of these Scatters on any of your active lines’ reels, you could win 1,5,25 or as much as 100 times your original bet amount.
