Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win Slot Machine
Try Playson Slots
Vikings have always been fascinating online slots players, so Playson has decided to design a slot that would feature a Vikings theme but has boosted it with many special features that will take players to the highest of payouts. Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win is Playson’s newest slot release, an action-packed, feature-filled slot that will take you on a different level.
The game, as mentioned, is packed with features. The regular Wild presented in Vikings-style is the symbol that substitutes for all regular symbols, but not for the Bonus symbol and the Scattered Chest with Gold Coins. The Scatter, on the other hand, will help you trigger the Free Spins. Since the Scatter can appear on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reel only, you need to land it 3 times to trigger 8 Free Spins. Additionally, the Scatter will give you a payout. But, if you land 3 additional Scatters during the Free Spins, you can retrigger the Free Spins. The two Vikings, the Wolf and the Crow symbols appear as Colossal symbols during the Free Spins, meaning sized 2x2 or 3x3, boosting your chances for awesome wins.
3 or more Bonus Symbols, presented with Golden Coins, will trigger the Bonus Game. The Bonus symbols only pay during the Bonus Game. Payouts you get during the Bonus Game are indicated on the symbol, but they can go from 1x up to 24x the stake. The Bonus symbols get Sticky for the duration of the Bonus Game, and you’re granted 3 Re-Spins at the beginning of the feature. For each additional Bonus symbol you land, the number of Re-Spins resets to 3.
Additionally, Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win offers three jackpots. Random appearances of either the Major or Mini Bonus symbols trigger the corresponding prize. If you fill the reels with these symbols, you grab the Grand Jackpot of 1,000x the stake.
Theme & Design
As you load the game, you will see that the Vikings have settled in the mountains. There is a beautiful temple that can be seen on the left of the reels.
On the reels, you will see the four high-paying symbols, the Male and Female Vikings, the Wolf and the Crow, along with the lowest-paying symbols, the playing card Royals. The Scatter is presented with a chest filled with golden coins, one of them being the most valuable one, the Bonus Golden Coin.
As for the special effects, there is an eerie sound in the background, in low volume, and the graphics are spotless. When you form a win, you can see that the spots on the reels that contain the winning symbols get on fire with special visual effects. In all, the design of Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win is impeccable.
Wagering & Paylines
There are 25 paylines you can select to place your bets on. The minimum bet per line can be $0.01 while the maximum $4.00. This means that the minimum bet you can place per round is $0.25 while the maximum $100.00.
The highest-paying symbol is the Male Viking, which gives you $2,000.00 for a 5-of-a-kind combo. You get the same payout for landing 5 Wild symbols. The Female Viking is the next highest-paying symbol, giving you $1,200.00 for the highest bet. Hitting the Grand Jackpot, you can grab a 1,000x the stake payout, meaning you could get $100,000.00. These payouts are great and hitting most of them, you'll grab a rather huge total.
