Viking Fire is a 40-payline slot game set in the milieu of our favorite second-millennium marauding raiders. This slot’s got a video bonus round to go with all the requisite wilds, scatters, free spins and such – and just to keep you in line, the blond warrior figure on the left side of the screen speaks softly and carries a big hammer. (Not to mention does a decent impression of Chris Hemsworth’s Thor; not that casino game software developers Lightning Box wants to evoke association with the multi-billion dollar franchise or anything…)
It’s kind of a weird batch, and we can’t help wondering if maybe the brain trust behind the Vikign Fire slots game wasn’t using that Viking Fire to stoke up a few bowls of creativity enhancer. Sure, the blonde warrior is typical, and he’s joined by yet another impossibly-built, red-haired, sword-weiling Viking warrior woman. Oddest among the high-paying symbols, though, is clearly the turbaned dude with the crystal ball. What gives here? When did the Vikings raid a Romani settlement?
Also included among the symbols set are the golden hammer – How do you say “You can’t touch this” in Old Norse? – serving as the wild, and a nice doggie. It must be Snert, and if you recognize that reference, you are a trivia master. And if you actually remember seeing Snert’s adventures when first published, you’re old.
On a single spin, you’ll want to hit five scatter symbols (the fireball; we’re not certain the Vikings had the technology to create such a phenomenon, but hey) anywhere on the screen for a 2,000-coin jackpot plus other pays, if any, won on the spin.
Naturally, hitting three or more scatters in the Viking Fire slot machines game will also trigger the bonus round.
Patience; I was just getting to that. After landing at least three scattered fireball symbols, the “Shoot the Ships” video bonus round is triggered; that’s not really the name of this bonus round, by the way, but we’re taking liberties for no such title was provided in-game.
In any case, the goal is simple: Fire the anachronistic cannon at the ships appearing on screen to collect prizes: free spins and/or extra bonus symbols to be enjoyed during the free spins. We can attest that scoring oneself three bonus wilds truly pays out in the free spins.
The Viking Fire slot’s 40 paylines are fixed, so you’ll be covering all of ‘em with a single-payline bet between 1¢ and $25 – that’s right: 40¢ to $1,000 per spin. Imagine landing $50,000 from a single payline win…
