Viking’s Ransom, an online slot machine game available at Jackpot Paradise, is an engrossing mix of the popular Viking themed games and casino slot machine games. With a variety of symbols and bonus features, this game is fast becoming the favourites amongst many gamers. To win exciting prizes and bonuses, all you do is bet on spins and hope to make different combinations on the pay lines.
Layout, Symbols and the Game
As mentioned above, to win different bonuses and free spins, along with big payouts, you need to have the different kinds of symbols fall in certain combinations on the pay lines. You would see that the game is spread across 40 pay lines with 6 reels and 4 rows. The background is that of winter, with ice-capped mountains and Viking Longships which can later serve as bonus opportunities.
The various symbols seen in the game are Hearts, Spades, Clubs and Diamonds, hammers, helmets, horns, and axes, and finally, the Viking woman and male Viking. While the first four symbols are of the lowest value, the last one is the most lucrative. The male Viking can get you 2,3,4 or 5 times your bet.
Viking’s Ransom comes with different types of wilds and scatters as special symbols. The scatters symbol is the Viking Longship, and all the different types of wilds substitute for all other symbols except the scatters.
The Reel Link Bonus feature is one where lighting strikes the game and links 2 reels together. In this case, the same symbols can be displayed by reels 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and 6 being linked. You’d be able to form a winning combination when Colossal symbols appear on the linked reels. In fact, there could be a mega link if lightning were to strike yet again.
If you get 3 or more Longship spins, it means you have played the Berserker Free Spins Bonus; 3, 4, 5, or 6 scatters give 8, 12, 15 and 20 free spins. Extra free spins can be triggered by 3 or more scatters once more.
If there are any wild symbols during a bonus round, you get the Berserker Wild Bonus feature, which adds a number of wild symbols all across the reels. Furthermore, you get Colossal Wilds if the Reel Link feature is active.
Viking’s Ransom makes for a fun, and entertaining game for all those who thoroughly enjoy online slot machine games and also warrior themed games.
