If you’re like us, then you’ll love a slot game that centres around the Vikings. And, of course, this offering from Lightning Box certainly does that. So, if you’re ready to head back in time to the age, then Viking Fire could be just the slot for you. You’ll not only get to play this game on a graphically superior layout, but you’ll also find that one of your trusty Viking comrades is on hand to give you assistance. He’s standing by on the left hand side of the reels. Meanwhile, the village that your tribe has managed to pillage is seen smouldering in the background. Everything in this game features cartoonish graphics and a very thematically relevant piece of music in the background. And don’t forget about the special features of the game either. We’ll get to these a little bit later on.
Grab Your Hammer and Helmet!
As a game, you’ll find that this one offers up a five reel and four row interface. This is slightly larger than the regular slot game interface, but provides more opportunities for winning combinations. It’s upon these reels that you will find various different icons. The first of them exist as the regularly seen J, K, Q, 10 and 9 symbols. Joining these symbols you will find various different strange offerings of icons. These include the genie-like man, the Viking warrior woman, a dog with spots on it and finally, a warrior man. These have all been given a thoroughly entertaining and fun look to them, as only Lightning Box know how to do.
Alongside the game’s reels, rows and icons, you will find that there are 40 separate pay lines. You cannot adjust this particular feature in any way, so you’ll always be placing bets on this amount. In addition, you’ll find that there’s the possibility of changing the value of your bet per round. This is done by using the coins on display at the bottom left hand side of the screen. These begin from the minimum value of £0.01 and you can increase the amount up to £25. This is the maximum overall wager that you’re able to play per spin across all 40 lines. There’s also the addition of an ‘Autoplay’ button which allows you the chance to spin the reels up to 100 consecutive times at the same wager level.
Go on Your Own Pillaging Adventure
The base game is entertaining enough in itself, but the developer has also made sure to insert some impressive specialities as well. For example, the golden hammer icon represents this game’s wild offering. As such, it will substitute for all other symbols on the reels, with the exception of the scatter icon. Any wins which feature this icon will also provide a double pay out. Should you manage to spin five of them on to a winning pay line, you’ll receive a maximum pay out of 1,500 coins.
As far as the scatter symbol goes, this is the icon which is the image of the word ‘Bonus’. These pay out in any location that they show up on. Any scatter win of three or more icons will also trigger the game’s bonus round. This presents you with a sea of ships which you need to sink. Simply pick targets to reveal extra wilds and freespins. Revealing two ‘X’ symbols will bring the round to an end.
There’s also a gamble round in the game as well. Any winning combination will ensure that you are able to access such. Your winnings receive a multiplier of times two if you select the correct colour of playing card. Otherwise, it is given a multiplier of times four if you select the correct playing card suit. Winnings may be gambled up to five times.
The Final Word
Viking Fire is definitely one of the more impressive games within the Viking slots genre. It features high quality graphics, entertaining special bonus rounds and an overall impressive base game round too. Being on offer from Lightning Box, the game might not be as well-known as many other Viking options. However, it should receive plenty of praise for all of the features that we have written about here.
