Viking Age Slot Features, Specials and Symbols
As you'd expect, the symbols that adorn the game's reels are all Viking themed. This means that, along with longboats, runestones and other Viking characters (Elgrim and Erik), you'll see things like axes, treasure, figureheads and flags spinning round at speed. It's important to note that there are no wild symbols on any of the Viking Age slot machine's reels. There are, however, three scatter symbols: a red Viking helmet, an arm wrestling symbol, and Amma herself.
If you land three or more red Viking helmets anywhere on the reels then you'll trigger the Runestone Doors feature. This isn't a Scandinavian Jim Morrison covers band but rather a quaint 'pick me' subgame where you help Amma choose from five symbols. The motif you select will yield a cash prize, free spins or afford direct access to the Bonus Round. The Bonus Round is activated whenever three or more of the arm wrestling symbols appear anywhere on the reels. Manage this and you'll be taken to a new screen displaying two Vikings about to have an arm wrestle. Your job here is to choose which wrestler to side with then help him win by picking the side of a coin toss – either heads or tails. Guessing the result of the coin flip correctly adds strength to your chosen wrestler thereby increasing his chances of winning. If your chosen Viking wins the arm wrestling contest then you'll pocket big bonus payouts. If three or more Amma symbols pop up anywhere on the reels then you'll get six free spins. Every payline is subject to a random win multiplier during this round.
