Viking Quest Online Slots Review
Viking Quest is another online slot celebrating the fun aspects of being a Viking. The Vikings were a race of Scandinavian warriors who sailed around the world discovering and conquering different lands. One such land was what is known today as Scotland. Viking Quest takes place in Scotland, with a whimsical and humorous view of the Viking invasion.
Viking Quest by Big Time Gaming has five reels and a large number of paylines. Each of the forty paylines can be played for between one and nine coins, but all forty lines are fixed which means that you have to play all of them. Coins can value between 0.01 and 10, giving this game quite a wide wager amount.
Fun Looking Slot
Viking Quest is a fun looking game with all characters being done in a cartoon style with big heads and tiny bodies. The reels are a pretty purple colour, and have a backdrop of a tree in first bloom in spring and a calm lake or loch. All in all Viking Quest is a very happy looking slot even though it is about conquering a land. The graphics are realistic, even though they are done in cartoon style. All of the symbols and the background have lots of detail which still looks good on a smaller screen.
Young Warriors And Pretty Maidens
Big time Gaming went out of their way in Viking Quest to make sure that all of the symbols are theme related. In many slots both online and brick and mortar we tend to find poker card symbols in place of owe raying icons. In Viking Quest there are no poker card symbols at all, only theme based icons. The lowest paying icons are the two Scottish maidens. One of the maidens seems to have stolen one of the Vikings helmets. Next up are the hammer and the shield, which represent both the Vikings religion as well as the weapons they would have used. From there we find a young Viking with green hair and for some reason a jester.
The games wild symbol is a red decorated square with the word wild on it. This will replace all other symbols in the game except for the various bonus icons. The wild is also the highest paying symbol and will award you with 1000 coins for five of a kind.
These are base game symbols that grow to cover a number of positions on the reels. They can cover more than one reel at once, in a block shape which takes up the space of four of the usually sized icons. This creates much more chances for a winning combination.
These are launched by the icon that very clearly says Free Spins on it. Each symbol found will give you one free spin, up to a total possible of sixteen. During these free spins reels two to five will have only mega icons.
Chest of Fortune
This round is triggered by one or more treasure chest icons. This is a simple pick me game where you just choose one of the chests to reveal a prize.
Gone Fishing Round
The gone fishing icon, which is a salmon scatter, will launch this round. These range between one and five, and the more you find the more attempts you get to catch a fish. The deeper the fish is that you catch, the higher the multiplier you will win.
