Viking Runecraft is a 7-reel Viking inspired slot, bought to us by Play’n Go. Wins are awarded from clusters of matching symbols, and bets start from just 10p a spin. There are levels to be climbed with winning cluster combos, alongside a fantastic variety of bonuses. With super-charged wild features, runestone bonus wheels and rewards every so many symbols collected, there is certainly never a dull moment when you play the Viking Runecraft slot.
Inspired by the Norse gods and their epic stories, the Viking Runecraft slot takes players on a trip to Valhalla that they won’t be forgetting anytime soon. The game itself has fantastic scenery, set upon some snowy mountains. It’s the little bits in the design which make this game fantastic. The snow coming down and we can even see the chap to the side of the reels breathe. His body moves in a cinematic way, it is great. For more insight into the game, read on through our Viking Runecraft slot review.
If you enjoyed the cluster wins style of Legend of Shangri-La or Gemix, then you will be familiar with the style in the Viking Runecraft slot.
Set the Stake
It couldn’t be easier to set the bet amount to play the Viking Runecraft slot. All of the potential options are displayed below the reels. They range from 10p a spin up to £100, so there is an opportunity for players of all kinds.
To explore all of the bet value options, use the + and – arrows either side of the values. Then, all you need to do is click on the amount you want to stake, and then you’re ready to play.
With cluster pays, you will need to land 5 or more identical symbols grouped together on the reels to win. The highest prizes come when you can land a match of 15 or more adjacent symbols!
The hammer holds the most value in the Viking Runecraft slot. The maximum payout for a mega group of these could reach up to 1000 times your bet!
A cluster of 15 or more helmets could have the potential to land you 250 times your stake, and top prize potential for the axe is a whopping 100 times the bet. A mega cluster of necklaces could win you up to 80 times the stake, so there is lots of potential for big prizes with these symbols.
It all depends how big the clusters get on your reels!
The lower value symbols are rune stones which are carved with different letters. Top prizes for these can vary between 10 and 50 times the stake; check the paytable for exact details.
Now, there is quite a selection of special features in the Viking Runecraft slot, so bear with us.
Gift of the Gods
On non-winning rounds in the main game, there is the potential for this feature to be triggered. There are four gods, so there are four gifts:
Thor – lightning strikes the grid creating 5 to 9 wilds
Odin – four wilds are created in pairs
Freya – four clusters of wilds appear until a win is made
Heimdall – one wild is created on each row
On each level of the game, you will be graced with the presence of one of the gods. Patterns are shown on the reels and when a pattern is cleared with winning symbols, a new level can be reached.
The question is, how many levels can you make it through?
Runes of Valhalla
The low-value symbols are the rune stones. Win on all five of them to collect them. Collect at least one rune stone and clear the current pattern to trigger the bonus game.
Once collected, these rune stones will activate winning spaces on a bonus wheel.
Whichever section of the wheel the pointer lands on, the prize is yours. The bonus amount won will be displayed on the bonus display.
Charge of Destruction
You will notice a meter to the left of the reels of the Viking Runecraft slot.
The meter charges up when winning, and one of the four features can be activated after winning 20 symbols.
After triggering the Charge of Destruction feature, if you win another 20 symbols, you can trigger the Ragnarök feature where the features from charge of destruction can run again and you may get a free spin.
All winning symbols in the Ragnarök feature increase the multiplier up to a staggering 15 times.
A Viking Adventure
There is plenty to take in with the Viking Runecraft slot. Once you start playing, the ways in which things work will become clearer. The scope of bonus features and variations of them is great; if you enjoy variety in your gameplay then you are likely to enjoy this game.
We enjoy the cluster pays games, and this one has an RTP of 96.71%.
