Best Viking Blogs 2021

by lucy on

As a highly civilised monkey, I’m not a huge fan of the Vikings or their Gods – far too much wrath and pillaging for my liking. But the doctor of anthropology inside me can’t help but find them a fascinating bunch!.

And I’m not alone… Haven’t you noticed the whole of Slotland is obsessed with these Nordic brutes? In fact, there are countless Viking themed games out there.

But which are the best? Well, here are my personal favourites.

Odin’s Riches (Just For The Win)

Odin is Thor’s father and God of War just in case you were wondering, whereas Odin’s Riches slot is a 7 x 7 cascade drop game that comes with medium volatility.

I love the graphics in this slot. They are first rate with an ancient scroll framing the reels and all manner of HD Norse-related icons on the reels.

But best of all are the bonuses; the Odin Wilds sees the generous God drop up to 9x wild symbols onto the reels randomly, while mini-features Dragon Riches, Wolf’s Hunger, Serpent’s Wisdom and Raven’s Flight will remove, upgrade and add wilds to your grid.

There is also an unlimited win multiplier in the Free Spins bonus… I say!

Asgardian Stones (NetEnt)

Back in 2018, NetEnt jumped on the Valhalla bandwagon with Asgardian Stones. This rather excellent slot is cut above your standard Viking game, as it features colossal icons and a rather cool bonus wheel side game. The reels are also made of stone tablets which rumble as they spin, and the soundtrack is an epic ditty fit for the gods!

The colossal 3×3 symbols can set off the Colossal Crush Feature that will demolish all symbols below it, awarding a win multiplier, but it’s the bonus wheel feature that gets my tail twitching.

Set it off by hitting a bonus wheel symbol on reels three, four or five. Now you’ll take a spin for cash prizes of 5x your bet or entry into the free spins round.

Base game extras and top notch design? What’s not to like?


Thunderstruck II (Microgaming)

The original Viking-god game, most of you will already know this slot monolith. Created back in 2009 by Microgaming, it is still one of their most popular games to date thanks to the level up game-play and 4x Free Spins features that come with 5x multipliers, random wilds and Rolling Reels.

Yes, the graphics are a little outdated – but the combination of medium volatility and a 8000x top win keeps slot fans coming back!

My favourite feature is the Loki Free Spins that transforms symbols into extra wilds. It can really bring some excellent payouts


Viking Fire (Lightning Box)

It may not be quite as well known as some of the other slots in this list, but I’m a firm fan of this comedy viking slot. Lightning Box have gone for a cartoon approach here, so it feels a bit more like Asterix than an episode of HBO’s Vikings.

It also comes with a wide bet range which means it’s a good game for all kinds of players – starting at 0.50 per spin and going all the way up to 1250.00! High rollers will approve!

The top win is only 2000x your bet, but you don’t have to have a Phd Game Theory (like me ) to know there are some massive wins to be made thanks to that huge betting margin.


Tiki Vikings (Just for The Win)

Now, Hawaii might not be the first thing you think of when I mention Vikings… But that’s exactly what you get in Tiki Vikings, brought to you by Just for the Win. Take your spins on a tropical beach with a grass-roofed hut – the design is impeccable and the unusual theme will put a smile on your face

You can look forward to Symbol Lock Re-spins that provide some decent base game pays, but it’s collecting wins in the Tiki meter that will really up the ante. Fill it completely and you’ll trigger a symbol upgrade; now all winning icons on that spin will become sticky and transform to the next most valuable symbol – boosting your wins in the process.

This game is highly entertaining, my dear chums


Viking Runecraft (Play ‘N GO)

Fans of cascading reel and Viking-themed slots will love Viking Runecraft, and with Play ‘N GO at the helm of this longship, you can expect great things.

Set on a 7×7 reel grid it features a cluster pay mechanic that sees your winning icons cover the reels both vertically and horizontally.

Your Viking quest is to fill up the collection meter. Manage this and one of four ‘Charge of Destruction’ bonus extras will trigger – named after 4 Norse Gods.

The Fury of Fenrir will remove one kind of symbols, The Judgement of Jormungand will transform icons into a random one, The Scorching of Surtr will burn symbols and destroy nearby ones, and in The Lure of Loki: you must pick 2x symbols. One will disappear from the grid and the other will be transformed into the other choice.

An immensely fun and lucrative game.

Viking Wilds (Iron Dog)

A Valkyrie warrior is your guide in this slot with up to 3,125 ways to win and randomly expanding reels. You’ll need to wade through the treacherous waters collecting keys to the Free Spins bonus where wins of 18 spins with x4 win multiplier are waiting!

As you may have ascertained, Wilds are central to the game play in Viking Wild and you’ll find 3 of them in the base game: standard, sticky and expanding.

But best of all, whenever you land an expanding wild during the base game and bonus, the reels will increase in size and a win multiplier will also increase by x1.

Vikings Wilds is an impressive low variance slot, and is a must-spin for new slots players.
