Volatile Vikings is a new casino slot from Relax Gaming where we travel to Ragnarök and take part in their exciting creation. We recently got to take part in an exciting adventure from this game provider in the slot Dead Man's Trail, where we among pirates set out in search of the giant Trail Bonus that exists. This time we get to take part in an adventure among some other iconic seafarers, namely the Vikings, where we are introduced to a wonderful cocktail of features. It is a slot that contains Scatter Pay mechanic, where 8 of the same symbol type pay out regardless of whether they are in adjacent positions or not. Something we have seen before in Gates of Olympus among others. This is a gaming adventure where the rough and volatile seas can yield winnings of up to 20000X the bet.

In this gaming adventure among Vikings, we have a bunch of wonderful features to help us in the hunt for the big wins. The features are Cascade, Multiplier Reveal, Free Spins and Bonus Buy.
The game's design consists of a Viking theme, where in the background we can see an icy environment and a large Viking ship swinging on the water. It is certainly a cold environment, but where the slot contributes warmth to the surroundings. Where the various Viking symbols will sing as wins are created. You can play this slot on the device’s notepads, desktops and mobiles. It is a Scatter Pay mechanic, where you create a win by landing 8 or more of the same symbol types on the reels. These don’t have to be in adjacent positions, instead it is enough if the right amount of the symbol lands on the reels.
The lower paying symbols consist of gems with Viking symbols in the colors blue, purple, yellow and red. If you land 12 or more of the same symbol types, it gives between 3X to 6X the bet. The higher paying symbols consist of Viking totems in the colors blue, purple, green, yellow and red. If you land 12 or more of the same symbol types, it gives between 10X to 50X the bet. The symbol that shows a treasure chest is the game's scatter symbol and during the spins you can also land Multiplier Reveal symbols. Let's find out what the features do.
What is the max win in the slot Volatile Vikings?
You can win up to 20000X the bet.
What features are in the slot Volatile Vikings?
The features are Cascade, Multiplier Reveal, Free Spins and Bonus Buy.
When you spin the reels and create a winning combination, the Cascade feature is activated. Then all the symbols that were part of the win will disappear from the reels and then new symbols will fall down to cover the empty positions. This continues as long as new winning combinations are created.
When you spin the reels, 2 Multiplier Reveal symbols will be placed on the reels 3 and 4. On each of these two symbols there will be a counter, where this decreases by 1 for each winning cascade that occurs. When you have reached 0, the multiplier will be displayed and when both multipliers have been displayed, they will add up to each other. This total multiplier will then be applied to the total win. When the multiplier is revealed, all adjacent symbols will be destroyed, where there can be up to 8 adjacent symbols. The multipliers can display values of 1X, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X, 7X, 10X, 20X, 50X and 100X.
When you land 3 scatter symbols, the Free Spins feature is activated. You are then welcomed with 6 free spins and for every extra scatter you landed gives you 1 extra spin. If you land a scatter symbol during this feature, you will receive 1 extra spin per symbol.
Within this bonus feature you will also be able to take part in the Multiplier Reveal symbols. The big difference is that it is persistent and at the end of each spin the multiplier displayed will apply.
If you want to take advantage of the Free Spins feature directly, you can use the Bonus Buy feature. You then pay 100X the bet and then you will land at least 3 scatter symbols that activate the bonus feature. When you use the Bonus Buy feature, the RTP will increase to 97.00%.
Spending time with Vikings hardly feels like something risk-free and the fact that Relax Gaming names the slot Volatile Vikings confirms very quickly that high volatile spins await. But as always, a high volatility can result in big sudden wins and that is really true as we in this slot can win up to incredible 20000X the bet. It is a slot where we are introduced to their exciting Scatter Pay mechanic, where winnings are created by landing 8 or more of the same symbol type on the reels. Something that breaks the trend of having winning paylines that need to start from the reels on the far left. As a perfect touch to this mechanic, they have added a cascade feature that makes the winning combinations disappear from the reels and makes room for more symbols to fall down and thus make the winnings even bigger.
It is a slot where they don’t use wild symbols, but this isn’t something you think about when the game is running, instead you eagerly focus on the Multiplier Reveal symbols that land on the reels 3 and 4. These come with a counter on them, whereby creating profits you get these to count down. It's like Hellcatraz meeting Gates of Olympus. In Hellcatraz the idea is to open boxes, where each connection takes you one step closer to opening the box. In this version we have countdown multipliers instead. They can show multipliers of between 1X up to 100X which can generate big wins quickly as they are merged and applied to the total win.
But it is as always within the bonus feature that the mega wins can be created and here every multiplier obtained will be collected, which towards the end of the free spins may have become very large. The current multiplier you have will then be applied to any winnings that are created. Relax Gaming chooses a very elegant set of features that fit perfectly with each other. The Multiplier Reveal symbols create a constant thrill to the spins, where you get to see which multiplier that is expected to come and also see the countdown happen until you hopefully can take part in it. With multipliers of up to 100X, it can go very fast for the total multiplier to get really big in the free spins, but it is clearly a very volatile slot and the spins can sometimes end very quickly before any major win has been created. It is a slot where you certainly gotta risk it to get the biscuit, but where its winnings can be very tasty with its potential winnings of 20000X the bet.
Volatile Vikings is a slot that allows us to take part in a very volatile gaming adventure, where with the help of Multipliers, free spins and Scatter Pay mechanic you can get a very rewarding visit.
