Overview Of Vikings Unleashed Megaways
Vikings Unleashed is another new offering from Blueprint utilising the licensed Megaways engine from BTG. Blueprint have been seriously raising the bar whilst simultaneously releasing more new slots than any other provider I can think of this year and that’s quite a feat, I honestly think Blueprint are making better use of BTG’s Megaways engine to date than BTG have so hats off to them.
Vikings Unleashed is an all ways pay slot and has a 6 reel by up to 7 row setup giving you up to 117,649 ways to win, basically exactly the same as Bonanza or Extra Chilli. During the base game there is no random feature apart from the hammers which can land on any reel and all explode to reveal the same symbol, think of the TNT symbols in Diamond Mine, it’s exactly the same.
To get the bonus you can wait till you land 4 or more scatters or you can also purchase 4 variations of the bonus as shown below, the first option is 25x your stake for 5 free spins, the second option is 50x your stake for 8, 10 spins is 75x your stake and to start with 12 its 100x your stake, should you get the bonus from 4 scatters you start with 12 free spins and get 5 extra spins for every additional scatter, once you make your choice your then taken to another screen to gamble!
The image below is where you’re taken after purchasing your spins or winning them with scatters, you have a double pie gamble that you can spin individually to build up your multiplier or spins to a maximum of 27 spins and 10x multiplier which you can see I achieved below. Looks easy aye, something to bear in mind is that there is no safety net at any stage of the gamble, you land in the red and you win nothing and go back to the base game empty handed, simple as that! It is however a very addictive gamble and could prove to be costly if you don’t set a target to actually collect, especially if you’ve just paid up to 100x for bonus in the first place!
During the feature you can re-trigger the bonus with 3 or more scatters but they only appear on the top middle reel, again this is identical to Extra Chilli and Bonanza. Each time you get a win during the bonus the multiplier increases by 1x, you can also get the random hammers during the bonus which all reveal the same mystery symbol and that’s basically your lot, you’re just hoping for a large multiplier and something to connect multiple ways across the whole board.
Vikings Unleashed Megaways Paytable
The paytable in Vikings Unleashed is straight forward and to the point, it simply tells you in multiples of your stake what each win is worth. Starting with 9’s they pay 0.8x your stake for a full way, 10’s pay 0.9x, J’s and Q’s pay a measly 1x and K’s and A’s pay 1.75x. The magician in the hood and the lady in yellow pay 2x for a full way, the ginger bearded viking pays 7.5x and the top symbol being the blonde bearded viking pays a huge premium of 50x for a full way!
Now some of these wins apart from the top 2 symbols may seem very poor but it’s worth noting the max win on this game is capped at a whopping 50’000x your total stake, it’s basically bonanza in a different dress with the addition of the feature gamble and just those two factors alone make it a very appealing slot to those in search of the monster wins.
Final Thoughts On Vikings Unleashed Megaways
Vikings Unleashed has an RTP of 96.5% and its safely in the super high variance category, this is an easy decision when you consider how hard it is to manually trigger the feature and how easy it is to then lose it on the very tempting pie gamble. The sounds and graphics are really good and I’d personally go as far to say Blueprint are going to be the new dominating force for online slots, they just seem to do everything smoother and cleaner than there competitors with these recent releases.
