Viking Runecraft Slot Review

The old Norse gods have been featuring in a lot of movies and series as of late. Now they enter the reels in this Play’n GO game. Collect the runestones, form combinations and advance on your way towards the hall of gods on each spin. An exciting journey awaits, with plenty of surprises and chances to level up along the way.

This is a slot that puts an emphasis on graphics and animations. As you play the game the thunderous background can change around, with different Norse gods taking the centre-stage, of course fully animated. Simple and powerful sound effects make the game even more entertaining. 

Instead of reels, Viking Runecraft uses cluster pays. This is a system originally invented by NetEnt for their game Aloha! Cluster Pays. Countless others exist today, such as Sweet Bonanza or Wizzard. Don’t worry though, the bonus features add an extra layer of interest to the game.

Play’n GOs Viking Runecraft is a bit different from their other games, which are usually a bit easier to play. They also tend to use normal payline methods. If possible, the game does come with better graphics than normal. This is a nice change of pace from previous games, and definitely a must-try for anyone. The payouts can get pretty massive too.

How to Play Viking Runecraft

Viking Runecraft game uses cluster pays. This means that the game simply matches adjacent symbols into combinations. There are a total of 49 positions arrayed on a grid of 7×7. Between 5 and 15 matching symbols are needed for a win. When a win is formed the combinations disappear, and new ones drop to replace them.

Betting is very easy, as you don’t have to calculate how much is bet on each payline. Instead, you just have to set your total bet, and you’re good to go. Possible bets range from 0.10 to 100 coins per spin.

Simply set your total bet and press play to start. Alternatively, you can also select the autoplay function, and watch the game spin up a hundred rounds automatically. You can also set conditions, such as stopping on a win or if a bonus round begins.

On the reels, you will find runestones, the same things Vikings used for writing, as well as some familiar icons like axes, horned helmets or Thor’s hammer. Obviously, the runestones are the lower value symbols. Though the game is ripe with bonus features, these are not mostly activated via bonus symbols.

In fact, the game only comes with wilds:

  • Wild – acts as a normal wild would, substituting for other symbols on the reels. Each god has its own wild.

Game Rules

Viking Runecraft Slot Features

This isn’t quite like your normal slot. The different bonus features aren’t activated via wilds or scatters or bonus symbols during the spins. It’s a bit more complicated, and might get some getting used to. But once you’re comfortable with it, the spins runs smoothly and the features really feel special.

All of the features and bonus modes are tied together, so read carefully so understand what’s happening on the reels. Might be worth your while to try the this online slot for free first.

Gift of The Gods

Each of the four gods in the game have their own powers. All of them activate at random, on any non-winning spin and each has something to do with wilds. You get access to new powers by advancing your level in the game.

Thor – A lightning strike that adds between 5 and 9 wilds on the screen.
Odin – Four wilds are created in two groupings.
Freya – Wilds are placed on the reels in four clusters until at least one win is achieved.
Heimdall – One wild is added on each row. 

Levels

When you start the game a special pattern is laid on the background of the grid. Every time you score a winning combination what is on top the pattern, those positions turn blue. Turn all of them blue and you complete the pattern.

When that happens you advance a level, gaining access to new powers. Make sure to keep your bet the same, as changing the bet removes your progress in this slot.

Level
Charge of Destruction

There’s a second meter on the left-hand side as well. This charge of destruction collects wins on single rounds. Every time you score wins with a total of at least 20 symbols on a single round a random feature fires up. Possibilities are as following:

Fury of Fenrir – Four lines of symbols are chosen, two of these lines are removed, and two are transformed into matching symbols.
Judgement of Jörmungandr – A chain of symbols are selected, with some symbols destroyed and others transformed into matching ones.
Scorching of Surtr – Three different symbols are chosen, with all surrounding symbols destroyed and the chosen symbols doubled.
Lure of Loki – All of two different symbol types are chosen. One group is destroyed, another transformed.

Rune of Valhalla

In Viking Runecraft runestones are extra important, giving you wins every time enough of them form a combination. And every time you score such a win, a meter on the left-hand side of the screen keeps accumulating points. 

When you advance a level, these points are then used to spin the bonus wheel. The collected symbols activate different spaces, which offer different wins. The number of wins collected will also increase the possible wins.

Rune of Valhalla
Ragnarök

Take the above bonus, and add twenty more winning symbols to the mix. This activates the end of days, or Ragnarök as the Norse knew it. This triggers a free round in Viking Runecraft. Whenever no wins are scored, one of the effects above fires, giving a chance to win more. All four features are gone through this way.

At the same time, all winning combinations charge the multiplier meter. This can lead to wins 15 times bigger than normal!
