Viking Conquest is a 5 reel slot from Viaden gaming. It uses an entirely new reel casing which has been designed to look like a Viking Longship. The designers have combined this design with a number of features including a wild symbol and an archery themed bonus game which puts you in the shoes of Viking invaders.
As mentioned before the reel casing has been designed to look like a Nordic Longship with integral reel icons, line markers and buttons. This is accompanied by music and sound effects which can be easily muted using the buttons above the slot.
The shield shaped reel icons all include various artifacts and paraphernalia associated with Vikings. These bespoke reel icons include Norse ships, Goat Heads, red haired vikings, viking women, 10, J, Q, K, A, bonus and wild symbols. Each of these reel icons animates when a winning payout is made, some even include their own themed sound effects.
Bets are placed using the integral ‘lines’ and ‘line value’ buttons. Altering the number of lines (1 to 9) and coin value creates a betting range of 0.10 to £/$/€4.50. This makes it a relatively low stakes slot which packs a punch with a $4,500 top end jackpot.
When staking 0.50 or more you unlock the ability to gamble each win. This allows you to guess the colour of the next card to double your win or the suit to quadruple it.
The Viking Conquest Wild symbol can substitute for all other symbols excluding the bonus. It seems to be fairly active and offers the added ability of doubling any win.
Three to five bonus icons awards the Viking Conquest bonus game. You are presented with three targets. The sight moves around in a Wii like motion and you click your mouse to release the arrow with the largest prize awarded for a bullseye. This offers an interesting variation to other ‘pick me’ style games on other slots as it does require skill and concentration.
The interesting appearance of Viking Conquest combined with the other bonus features ensures you’ll not get bored easily. They’ve included a good range of low to mid risk bets which offer a god chance of receiving a return. All this with the added bonus of learning a little about the Vikings, sounds good to us!
