Viking & Striking is a slot game with something of an erratic history. This title was first released in 2010 by the casino software developers at Top Game, only to be yanked from active distribution within about 18 months, thanks to certain difficulties the company was experiencing in terms of reputation and such. Top Game then retreated a bit out of the casino business, deciding instead to concentrate on merely creating the games, with a particular new emphasis on tablet and mobile gaming.
After a long dry run in which the company produced nothing, Top Game has pumped out its second top-notch online slot in two months: This one’s a 5-reel 25-payliner called Viking & Striking slot was re-released with the mobile format in mind.
Today, the Scandinavian looters of the past (and here we mean both the early 2010s and late 1000s) are back to (hopefully) bring you online slots loot, but playing slots is a fair sight more fun, with no awaiting of the raids necessary.
The Viking & Striking slot is (still) a 5-reel 25-payline game loaded with cartoony, Asterix- and Obelix-looking Vikings – except for the obligatory bra-busting Viking babe, of course. A battle axe, sword, mace and hammer complete the (literal) arsenal.
The wilds are marked WILD, and the scatters are represented by the classic Viking longbow ships; with three, four of five or the latter in a single spin, the player wins a big 10, 20 or 30 free spins, respectively. On top of this are the BONUS symbols; there are a sort-of half-scatter, for landing three or more of these launches one of two video bonus rounds under the “Shields of Fortune” rubric.
Essentially, both are “pick ‘em” rounds with a lot of luck required, but definitely sizable awards also waiting for the winning. In short, cross your fingers (or whatever the Vikings did for luck) and seek out the “Rune of Luck” to bag the biggest jackpot.
Across the 25 paylines, bet between 1¢ and $5 per payline; top jackpot payout is 5,000 coins on a single-payline win.
Sorry football fans, no Purple People Eaters included. On the other hand, look at it this way: At least your winnings won’t be choked away on a missed field goal or a subpar game by your overpaid wide receiver…
