Vikings Unleashed: Megaways Slot review
One of the Blueprint Gaming titles to offer the Megaways system, Vikings Unleashed has a superb design to offer as well.
Vikings Unleashed: Megaways is part of an increasingly bigger collection of slot machines that use a system which was acquired by Blueprint Gaming from Big Time Gaming. Megaways were all the rage in 2018, and so several companies jumped onboard this train, getting the rights to use them. Blueprint Gaming has released several slots with this system already. Luckily, they look great as well, which is something BTG never did get right. You have the regular Viking theme here, but with awesome graphics and with several warriors and maidens appearing on the reels. You can add some decent-looking Royals to that list, along with hammers or logos. The action takes place on a longboat, with the ocean’s waves splashing against its side. A very well done design overall, definitely one more reason to check out this game.
As many other slots of this type, it’s hugely volatile and it could pay off in a major way for the luckiest players. The unlimited win multipliers which are offered during free spins will help, as will wilds, scatters and mystery symbols. There are 6 reels here, with as many as 117,649 Megaways available on them. Finally, we know that the RTP is at 96.5%, so the game does pay back a decent amount to its players, over the course of its entire life though.
The wagers are going to cover all the megaways, no matter how many you get. You only select the total amount, from a limited range of $0.20 to $10. The option to buy free spins is available, and it costs 25x to 100x the usual stake, depending on how many you want.
The game is unpredictable, and that’s obviously a result of the Megaways system. You’re getting a lot of ways to win some rounds, and they can result in big payouts, even though you win only 50x the stake from the best combinations. The unlimited win multipliers will go up after each reaction you trigger during free spins, so that’s where the big potential is.
Other features have the wild symbol, or the scatter which triggers 12 free spins when it lands four times. On top of that, there is also the option of the Mystery Symbol, which transforms into most symbols, the scatter trigger being the exception.
Expect a game with a lot to offer, from its huge potential payouts, to cute graphics and a long list of features.
