Book of Vikings Slot (Pragmatic Play)

Book of Vikings Slot (Pragmatic Play)Book-style slot games have remained one of the most popular categories of slots. Developers don’t seem to get enough of them, and to date, there have been countless slots that borrow from this theme.

The latest to hit the market is Book of Vikings, a slot title that was developed by Pragmatic Play. This time, the developer has gone with a Nordic them, and I will share my findings about the title in the review below:

Game Set-Up

Book of Vikings uses a 5 reels design with up to 10 lines. It offers the usual features common with such games, and these include free spins (comes with expanding symbols), and wilds.

Betting and Prizes

The title is quite volatile, and I got started with as little as $0.10 per spin. However, as usual with Pragmatic Play, wagers can go to as much as $100 per spin.

I love the game’s potential despite the risk that is involved, and on a good day, Book of Vikings can pay 5,500x the stake. The RTP is at a decent 96.50%.

Book of Vikings Features

Just as I have seen on other book-inspired slots, the Book icon serves as both the wild and the scatter, and I can say it serves as the main symbol in the game.

As a wild, the Book icon assists in forming smaller wins, and this is because it serves as a substitute.

As a scatter the icon will bring wins of between 2x and 200x the stake, and trigger the free spins, when it lands 3 to 5 times in random locations. 10 free spins will be offered, and there is a possibility to retrigger the feature once inside.

The biggest feature, for this slot machine and for any other Book-style release, is going to be the free spins. In this mode, once you gain access to it, you will get a random expanding symbol.

One of the regulars will get this role, and will be able to expand and take over its reels, making it a lot easier to form winning combinations on all lines at the same time. It will pay even if the reels it occupies are not adjacent, you just need enough symbols on the same line.

Theme & Design

Pragmatic Play kept the same Book-style format for its main symbol and features, but it also changed some things up, and I’m grateful for that. Rather than using the standard Ancient Egypt theme, we’re getting one based on Norse mythology and Viking warriors.

We see beautiful fjords in the background, and a mix of beautifully crafted metal Royals on the reels, in the lower paying positions. High value symbols give us images of the Drinking Horn, Helmet, Viking Shield Maiden, along with a Viking Chief. Finally, there is the Book symbol.

Conclusion

Book of Vikings will do just fine, if all you want is a standard Book-style slot machine. It doesn’t claim to be anything other than that though, there is nothing unique or new about it, with the possible exception of the Viking theme.
