Bonus Rounds and Payouts
Viking Mania has 2 Bonus Rounds on offer apart from the base game. Both these Bonus Rounds give you the chance to make some extra cash without having to pay a bet.
- Viking Playtime Bonus Round
This Round is activated by the Hammer Bonus symbol. You need to land 5 consecutively in the centre of every reel so that the Hammers spell out 'Bonus'. The bonus round takes place in a separate setting, where a Viking is tied to a large target board. You are given a choice of items to throw at him, which includes a tomato, a hammer, an axe, a chicken and an egg. You get 10 shots, for each shot that hits the target you get a multiplier which is added to your stake. This is not a game of skill, rather it is automated but you should get several hits on the target.
- Free Spins Round
Landing 3 or more of the Map Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels unlocks the Free Spins Round. In this round, you are awarded 10 free spins that come with an attached 3x multiplier to boost your winnings. During these free spins, the Wild symbol becomes expanded to give you even more winning potential. The Map Scatter also acts as a stand-alone symbol and awards you for landing just 2 or more anywhere on the reels.
Additional Game Features
The Wild in Viking Mania is an image of the blonde Viking King. He is powerful enough to replace all the other symbols, thus contributing to wins. He appears on the middlemost reels of 2, 3 and 4. During the Free Games, he becomes expanded to cover entire reels.
The AutoPlay feature is a favored one in the world of online slots. It allows you to greatly speed up the game by spinning the reels automatically at your chosen bet level for a predetermined amount of spins.
9, 10, J, Q, K, A, Wild Boar, Horn, Female Viking, Male Viking.
The Scatter symbol is an image of a Map and it awards you with free spins and multipliers.
The Wild symbol is the Viking King and he can substitute for all other symbols except for the Bonus and the Scatter.

This is not the first Viking-themed game we have seen from Playtech but it is definitely the best. In terms of graphics, it doesn't get much better and there are more than enough bonus features to around. The earning potential is boosted by the free spins, bonus round as well as the more than decent RTP of 97%.
To sum it up, Viking Mania is easy to play, easy to look at and easy on the pocket.
