Booongo – a not very popular provider released Vikings Winter on 25th July 2019 as an unusual video slot. It has an interesting grid layout. It progressively increases the number of symbols from left to right. They start from 2 and gradually reach to 5 symbols per reel. This set is flipped on the opposite direction during free spins. Here, double wild reels and 100 pay-lines will help you increase your bankroll.
In Vikings Winter there are 100 fixed pay-lines in the base game and the free spins. They form from symbols landing from left to right. When there are wins from more than one pay-line they will be added together. You will receive the highest cash reward per pay-line. You can play the video slot on desktop and mobile devices of any kind with wagers from 0.20 to £60 per round. The grid consists of a very unusual and original pyramid layout.
On the left, there is one reel with 2 symbols, next to it there are 2 more reels with 3 symbols each. The 4th reel holds 4 symbols, the 5th, and 6th one land 5 symbols each. This way the 2-3-3-4-5-5 layout is formed. The six reels start from 2 and reach to 5 symbols from the left to right in the base game. They are in the opposite position during the free games. There is a random feature when you cover a whole reel with wilds. It doubles the wild reels by adding another reel with wilds only.
From the free spins, you can initially win 15 rounds. If you re-trigger them with a maximum of 5 more scatters, you can add another 15 free spins. This way you can play 30 free spins in the game. The best-paying symbol is the wild which rewards 5x stake for 6 symbols. The largest cash reward you can add to your account is 500 times your stake and win £30,000 if you play with a £60 stake.
The slot is set with a dark bluish winter landscape as the background. You will be listening to a melodic and epic musical soundtrack. The distant howling of wolves and roaring of crows will include in the musical accompaniment from time to time. Each landing of the longboat scatter will be indicated with the sounds of swords.
On the grid, you will see 3 wild animals: a crow, a wolf, and a brown bear and the two main characters: the Viking woman and the man. Also in play are the cards styled in different colours each one. The overall layout, design, and musical soundtrack are nice. They ensure pleasant and different from the other slots gaming sensation. Vikings Winter has low volatility.
The symbols include a Viking warrior, a woman, a bear, a wolf, and a crow. The low-value symbols are the A, K, Q, J, and 10 playing cards. There is a wild and a scatter. The female and male Vikings are the top-paying symbols. Landing from 3 to 6 identical of each on any of the 100 fixed pay-lines gives you from 0.25 or 0.50 to 3.75 times your stake. Next in value are the three wild animals: the brown bear, the wolf, and the crow. Matching from 3 to 6 identical of any of these on a line gives you from 0.25 to 2.50 times your stake.
The A, K, Q, and J pay equally: from 0.10 to 1.25 when hitting 3 to 6 identical symbols on a win line. The 10 pays the smallest amount – from 0.10 to 1 times your stake for 3 to 6 symbols on a line. The wild symbol is silver framed and ornamented with a golden ‘WILD’ written inside. It substitutes all symbols except the scatter and pays from 0.50 to 5 times your stake when landing 3 to 6 of it on the reels. The scatter is the longboat with white and red stripes sailing in the sea.
During the main game and the free spins, there is feature boosting your play. It is called Double Wild Reel. It becomes active when the Special Reel becomes fully covered with wild symbols only. As a result, another of the reels at random will be covered with wilds too. This way landing one wild reel may reward you double as much.
Hit 3 or more scatters of the longboat symbols during the main game to activate the Free Spins. If you land 3 scatters you will win 5 free spins, 4 of them will give you 10 free rounds, 5 scatters grant you 15 free spins. During them, you can re-trigger the feature with 2 to 5 longboat symbol landed in a spin. Landing 2 more scatters gives you 2 extra free spin. 3 scatters are equal to 5 more free rounds, 4 scatters give you 10 more free rounds.
If you have the luck to land 5 more longboat symbols you will add 15 extra free spins to those you already won. During free spins, the reels will flip to the other side. In the base game, you will play them in the 2-3-3-4-5-5 layout. But while you are in the free spins the set will be in the opposite direction. This gives you much higher chances for wins as they form via symbols landing from left to right. The left side will be with the largest number of symbols on the reels – 5. Thus, forming paying combinations will be easier.

Its low volatility and the 500 times your stake max win makes it suitable for casual players. The graphics and features are intriguing, with the strange layout and double wild reel feature active at all times. Play from mobiles or desktops for a truly authentic Nordic experience!
