Viking Voyage Game Characteristics
Viking Voyage has a partitioned, brown-framed 5X3 grid that is embedded on the transparent sail of one of the four longships in a wavy sea. There are 243 left-to-right winning ways, eleven lowly total bets, (buyable) free games, bonus game, a win multiplier, locked reel-long wild Norse king, free re-spin, side game, and regularly pays from $0.02 to $1000.00.
Viking Voyage has fourteen runic symbols. Three special symbols: substitute is a turquoise-embedded golden “wild” Norse king in a horned helmet (prompts the free re-spin); free games-triggering encircled “bonus” longship with a white-and-gray mast; and the scatter is a runic encircled raven god Odin in flight.
There are eleven ordinary symbols. Three high-paying, horned helmet-wearing Vikings with plaited beards: ax-carrying, redhead Viking; blindfolded, brown-haired Viking Elgrim; and spear-wielding, eye patched elderly Viking Erik.
Three average symbols: ruby-embedded golden urn; golden-horned iron helmet; Viking ax. Five low-paying gray card values: A, K, Q, J, and 10.
The Viking Voyage bet sizes: $0.10 (minimum bet), $0.20, $0.30, $0.40, $0.50, $1.00, $1.50, $2.00, $2.50, $5.00, and $10.00 (maximum bet).
The $10.00 bet has these highest Viking Voyage payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations. Ax-carrying Viking pays $100.00, $200.00, and $1000.00. Blindfolded Viking Elgrim, or white-haired Viking Erik pays $20.00, $50.00, and $400.00. Scattered raven god Odin pays $4.00, $40.00, and $400.00.
Urn, or helmet pays $20.00, $40.00, and $200.00. Viking ax pays $4.00, $20.00, and $40.00. A pays $2.00, $10.00, and $30.00. K pays $2.00, $6.00, and $30.00. Q pays $2.00, $6.00, and $20.00. And J, or 10 pays $2.00, $4.00, and $20.00.
Three piled Norse kings transform into a reel-long, full-bodied king (with a sword and shield) who is stuck for the ensuing one free re-spin. The “bonus” longship may land on the corner reels concurrently, thereby prompting ten wins-tripling free games.
The twelve buyable “free” games cost X70 the bet. Accessed via the green “buy feature” cart at top right, these “free” games cost $7.00, $14.00, $21.00, $28.00, $35.00, $70.00, $105.00, $140.00, $175.00, $350.00, and $700.00. Note: a landed “$” golden coin is hurled to the cart, progressively decreasing the “free” games’ cost.
In the side game, the collectible current win can be gambled; players predict a coin’s sides—heads (bust) or tails (mountain peak). The outcome is a nullified payout (for a wrong prediction) or a doubled payout (for a correct prediction). Viking Voyage’s non-progressive jackpot is X473.3, which (473.3X10) is $4733.00.
The god Viking Voyage software: icons on a longship; desktop and mobile versions; quick spin; and 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, and 100 autospins. Ambient background: Norse music. Sound effects: war cry, jingling, and chinking. The animated 3D graphics include dolly zoom, glow, glitter effect, bobbing longships.
