Do you idolise the Viking way of life? Does eating and drinking heavily, arm-wrestling, fighting to the death with your opponents, pillaging then making off with scantily-clad, pigtailed ladies sound like your idea of a good time? Well, it probably does to most people, which perhaps is one reason why the people at Betsoft decided to create Viking Age, an excellent, 5-reel, 30 payline slot game.
Some games depict historical peoples or figures like Vikings very seriously. Viking Age does not do this, opting instead to present the proud people in a playfully comical manner. Yes, these Vikings are less concerned with discovering new worlds and conquering lands than they are with eating, drinking and cavorting. Frankly, though, who could blame them? Maybe you will also be able to live as grandiosely as the Vikings if you manage to win this game's jackpot prize.
As you probably would have guessed, Viking Age features a number of Viking-themed bonus features as well: The first of these is the Runestone Bonus. Three red helmets will trigger a game where you get to pick an ancient symbol to win the random prize it conceals. Meanwhile, three or more cute, pigtailed ladies on the reels will award you the multiplier free spins feature. This gives you a random number of free spins that could also benefit from a multiplier. Finally, if all of this is not enough, three locked hands will enable - you guessed it - an arm-wrestling combination. Pick one of the two Vikings and watch the two of them battle it out. If you pick the winner you'll win a prize.
Throw on that helmet and your fur and get out there with the other pillagers! Actually, the first thing you do in this game is figure out how much you want to put on the line. Bets range from as little as $.02 to as much $75.
