Pragmatic Play – Book of Vikings – Free Slot Game

It’s quite refreshing not to have to take another long walk in the desert, and visually the Viking theme in Book of Vikings is quite well done. You’ll see some nice animations when the bonus round starts, and the soundtrack is more than epic enough to be suitable. It doesn’t bring anything new to the table, but the mathematical model is compelling.

Everything plays out on the standard 5 reels, 3 rows and 10 ways to win, and you can place bets between 10p and £100 per spin. The lack of any twist in the tale is a bit disappointing from our point of view, but forgivable due to the generous RTP. However, we doubt it will be enough to be a big hit, but it’s certainly an interesting alternative.

Bonus features on Book of Vikings slot

As you would expect, the book symbol plays a very central role in this game. The book serves as both the wild and scatter of the game. This means that it can substitute for all regular symbols to form winning combinations. Landing at least 3 book scatters anywhere will trigger the bonus round.

However, before the free spins feature is executed, you will get a scatter win of either 2x, 20x or 200x. This win comes from 3, 4 or 5 book scatters and you will get 10 free spins no matter how many scatters you land. Before the bonus round is played, the book is opened and a random symbol is selected.

If you land anywhere at least 3 of the selected symbol, it will be expanded to the entire reel after the regular win calculation is completed. This means that you don’t have to land the expanded selected symbol on adjacent reels to win. You can retrigger the feature with 10 new spins as many times as you manage to land 3+ scatters with the same free spin.

In our test session, we had some decent wins in the bonus round, but they were somewhat limited due to the low value symbol selected. Anyway, you can see how everything went and how much we won in the edited highlight video below.

Rating Conclusion

For those who are familiar with the book series and who aren’t these days, there’s nothing new to see here, except for the Viking theme. The potential is a bit higher than usual at 5,500 times your bet. The RTP of 96.5% is also a bit more generous than in the original Book of Dead. In other words, a slightly improved mathematical model is what you get here, combined with a well-done Viking theme that might be enough to appeal to some players.
