Most people know of the Vikings as that football team in Minnesota. Others know them as the white people who “discovered” America (take that, Christopher Columbus). For the folks at BetSoft, they are the fun theme of a slot game intended to get you to press that little spin button. And it works.
Viking Age is a slot with an ancient Norse theme. It features tough, burly Viking men with armor, fur coats, long beards, and battle axes, as well as Viking maidens with long, braided hair, armored corsets and great cartoon racks! If you like snow, axe-wielding madmen, and names like Bjorn, Viking Age is the slot game for you!
Found at online casino 7red.com, Viking Age is a 5-reel video slot featuring 3-D graphics. By that, I don’t mean you can put on glasses and have the images pop out of the screen at you. What I mean is that the characters all appear to be lifelike and three-dimensional, rather than stiff and flat. The game offers up to 30 paylines. There are no multipliers or wildcards, but the slot does have a scatter symbol and several bonus features.
What about the money? If you’re looking at online slots, you want to know about the money. Players can win up to 1500 coins by hitting the jackpot. You can bet between $0.02 and $1 on each line and up to a total of $150 on each spin.
As the Viking Age slot loads, you will see a picture of two big Viking men arm wrestling in an old pub. You get the feeling that the contest will end with blood. One of the coolest things about the game is the animations. Once the game loads and you see the reels before you, a Viking maiden will dart across the screen and stand next to the reels. If you take too long to spin, she will point at them impatiently or yawn. But enough about her.
In the background you see a jungle wilderness and engravings in runestone. On the reels, which seem to be carved into runestone of some kind, there are symbols of Viking ships, axes, helmets, shields, the arm-wrestling Vikings, a crown and other jewels, and more. Symbols become animated when you win.
The game has several cool bonus features. There are the standard free spins, the arm wrestling bonus round, and the runestone doors feature. In the arm wrestling bonus game, you have to choose which Viking will win, which gives you 50/50 odds. The runestone doors bonus game shows you various Viking symbols on the reels and you must choose one. Each symbol has a secret bonus associated with it. If you like Vikings, arm wrestling, online slots, axes, and beards, Viking Age is probably the best game out there for you. It would certainly be hard to top in any case.
