Erik The Red Slot Review

Join Erik and his crew as they travel through the Norwegian Sea searching for a new place to settle. Will you be of help to Erik the Red and his wife Helga or just a burden? Spin the reels and find out if you have what it takes to take a piece of the gold you find on the new settlement.

Visual-wise, the game is very simple yet beautifully made. In the background, you can see icebergs floating on the cold sea as two Viking ships have made their way past them. In the middle of the screen, there is the only ship with red sails on top of which the reels are found. Last, the logo of the game is located right above the sails in what appears to be some type of red ribbon or flag.

The reels spin altogether and stop individually in successive order. Winning symbols become animated and trigger their associated sound effect.

The Viking theme and some of the gameplay mechanics reminded us of NetEnt’s “Hall of Gods”, a slot we recommend you try out if Erik the Red sounds fun to you.

How to Play Erik The Red

The game consists of 4 rows and 5 reels with 20 fixed paylines. The main controls are located below the reels. There you can adjust the bet size or enable the autoplay and quickspin features as well as tweak a few other options. Further customization is available via the in-game menu. Bets start at just $0.10 and can go as high as $100.

Erik the Red is a medium volatility slot which makes it a great and affordable gambling option for all players. You can expect to get regular wins of varying payouts and the most you can win in a single spin is around $10,000.

The game features 3 low-paying and 5 high-paying symbols. The first are represented by blue, white-green, and white-red shields while the most rewarding ones come in the form of a blowing horn, a battle-ax, a helmet, Erik and his wife, Helga. All these can appear stacked.

The slot’s special symbols are:

  • Wild – The slot’s wild is the handle of a sword which transforms to the whole sword if it appears stacked. It can appear on all reels and substitutes for any other symbol excluding the scatter to form winning combinations and boost wins.
  • Scatter – The slot’s scatter appears as a Viking culture-inspired pattern. Getting 3 of them in any position will award 8 free spins.

Game Rules

Erik The Red Features

This particular Relax Gaming slot doesn’t have much to offer in the sense of bonus features. That said, big wins mostly hinge on the free spins so you must understand how these play out. Let’s take a look at them.

Mystery Stack Feature

This feature is triggered at the beginning of each spin. A randomly selected symbol will appear stacked on all 5 reels during that spin. This only happens if that symbol lands on each reel though. For example, there can be only 2 reels the stacked symbol lands on.

Mystery Stack Feature
Free Spin

Getting 3, 4, or 5 scatters anywhere on the reels will award 8 free spins. Upon entering the feature the word “WILD” will be placed on top of each reel.

Each time you get a scatter on a reel during the free spins, one letter of the word “WILD” will light up. Once the whole word is lit the according reel will transform into a fully stacked wild reel and remain active until the end of the feature. You will also be awarded one extra free spin.

The reels on which the scatter symbols that activated the feature appeared will already have the first two letters of the word “WILD” lit.

If one of the two character symbols occupies the entire reel then they will also transform into a fully stacked symbol for that spin only.

The feature isn’t that difficult to trigger and based on our test it awarded as with 82x our total bet.
