The design in Tiki Vikings is very well done. Flanked by a pair of totems the reels are set within a Polynesian-style beach hut. There you’ll find A, K, Q and J symbols as well 3 mighty Viking warriors garlanded by flowers. The Tiki Vikings logo is the best standard symbol, awarding 2, 4 or 15 times your stake if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a line.
The main feature on offer in Tiki Vikings is the Symbol Lock Re-Spin feature. These are triggered every time you land a winning combination made up of 1 of the 3 Viking symbols or the logo. Those winning symbols lock in position and the rest of the reels spin again.
If a new matching symbol joins the original winning cluster, then it too locks in position and the process is repeated. The re-spins keep on coming until no new matching symbol lands. A payout calculation then takes place with the final set of matching symbols on display.
Also in play here is the Symbol Upgrade feature. Every re-spin that results in a symbol lock adds 1 symbol to the meter to the side of the reels. When the meter is full, all the locked Viking symbols morph into the next most valuable symbol. The meter then resets.
Just For The Win has created a superbly designed slot game in Tiki Vikings. The bold, colourful imagery is terrific. The gameplay is good too. The streak re-spins round is one of our favourite features and you can expect to land it regularly as it triggers after every higher value symbol win.
These aren’t the choppiest water for your bankroll. The variance is in the medium range which is high enough to keep things interesting – you can win up to 313.8 times your stake from each spin or re-spin. This Hawaiian/Scandinavian mash up works better than we expected. If you fancy trying to pillage a jackpot or 2 Pacific-style, then set sail with the Tiki Vikings. If you like these Norsemen, Vikings by Net Entertainment (based on the television series) is highly recommended.
