Follow Amma for the Chance to Find Ancient Northern Treasure
Viking Age is 3-row, 5-reel, 30-adjustable payline slot powered by Betsoft’s Slots3 cinematic technology. It opens with a short movie clip that sets the stage and invites players to join in on the adventure. The reels are literally set in intricately carved stone and surrounded by forest. All of the game buttons are cleverly marked in boulders that rest beneath the reels. An animated Viking girl, Amma, stands to the right. She cheers on wins with a ‘Yeah!” and “Great!” When a winning combo occurs, the symbols become animated with short clips such as arrows striking a shield, Erik swinging his axe and Elgrim slamming back a pint. The music is just as high quality as the 3D graphics making for a very entertaining slot experience.
Viking Age shows values for Bet/Line, Total Bet, Balance and Win in both cash and credits beneath the reels. Choose a Total Bet ranging from 30 – 150 credits and 2p – £150 at Vera&John. Adjust the Bet/Line and # of Lines to change the Total Credit Bet. Adjust the Coin Value, Bet/Line and # of Lines to change the Total Cash Bet. This online slot’s pays are listed in credit values on the Paytable and remain fixed despite changes made to the Total Bet. All Viking Age wins are calculated by multiplying the pay by the Bet/Line.
This online slot has 11 symbols worthy of a Viking adventure. Viking Age offers 3 special symbols including Amma, Red Helmet Bonus and Arm Wrestling Bonus. All special symbols are involved in triggering the Bonus Features. Amma triggers a round of Free Spins, the Red Helmet triggers the Runestone Feature and the Arm Wrestling Bonus triggers a Bonus Round. Viking Age has 8 regular symbols. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Erik, Elgrim, Ship, Axe, Crown, Figurehead, Runestone and Shield. Gameplay is left to right. Viking Age awards wins for 2+ Crowns – Eriks and 3+ Shields – higher. The highest paying symbol is Erik which shows a value of (300, 150, 75, 25). Eric gives Viking Age the potential to award up to £1500 with a 5 of a kind match and up to 45,000 credits along all 30 paylines. That amounts to £45,000 at Vera&John.
Viking Age, like many Betsoft online slots, offers an Autoplay option ranging from 5 – 100 consecutive spins. Click the ‘autoplay’ button in the upper left corner of the screen, choose the number of spins, and select a bet option (Coin Value, Bet/Line, # of Lines). Manually end autoplay by clicking the ‘stop autoplay’ button. Unlike other Betsoft slots, Turbo Play is not offered. Viking Age Game Settings are limited to allowing players to toggle sound on/off.
Viking Age Bonus Features
Runestone Bonus: The appearance of 3+ Helmet Bonus symbols transforms Viking Age’s 5 reels into 5 Runestone Doors. Choose a rune for the chance to win a credit prize, a free pass to the Bonus Round or a round of Free Spins.
Multiplier Free Spins: The appearance of 3+ Amma symbols triggers a round of 6 Free Spins with 6 Multiplier Spinners: 3 to the right and 3 to the left of the reels (2x, 3x, 5x). Each time a winning combo occurs during Free Spins, a Win Multiplier is awarded if there are matching Win Multipliers on the first and last symbols of the winning combo. For example, if a win is awarded along payline 1 AND the spinner adjacent to the first and last symbols of that line shows a Win Multiplier of 2x, then the win is automatically doubled!
Arm Wrestling Bonus Round: The appearance of 3+ Arm Wrestling Bonus symbols triggers the start of a Bonus Round. Pick a Viking (Elgrim or Erik). There is a counter on each side of the table with 3 empty notches each. Correctly guess the outcome of a coin toss (heads or tails) to fill a notch on your chosen Viking’s side of the table and win a coin prize. An incorrect guess gives the point to the other Viking and awards a lesser coin prize. The Viking with all 3 notches filled wins the contest

Viking Age has everything a player could want in terms of eye candy with its top of the line, Slots3 technology. While the Bonuses seem adequate, the Free Spins round is a bit of a letdown. Viking Age holds the promise of potential Win Multipliers (up to 5x), but withholds them unless the stars (or in this case, spinners) are in alignment. Not to mention, while the RTP is adequate, it doesn’t stand out from competing slots that offer RTPs of 95% or higher. If eye catching graphics and animated gameplay are what you like best, have a look at other Betsoft slots.
