We’re back in the days of the vikings for this video slots game from Microgaming. For over two decades they’ve been continually coming up with some great games and this is no exception. If you fancy a slots game that has a bit of viking adventure and giant spiders thrown in, then this is definitely for you.
This is a five-reel, non-progressive slots game with 1024 different ways to win. You don’t have to choose how many paylines to play in each spin of the game but you do have to make a decision over how much you stake and how many coins you play on each spin. The coin bet range is £0.01 to £0.20 with a maximum of ten coins per line. The maximum stake is £500 but only go for that if you can truly afford to lose it.
With 1024 different ways to win on this game that means that you’ll be able to get plenty of small wins along the way. There’s actually a statistics button down the bottom of the screen that you can press. This shows how long you’ve been playing and details of your three biggest wins. It can be reset at any time you want it to.
Your chances of winning are boosted by the fact that there are scatter and wild symbols in the game plus the chance to earn free spins and multipliers.
The symbols in this game are all theme-related which is always a bonus in my book. Also earning my praise is the fact that they are all beautifully designed. These viking inspired symbols include white wolves, a female viking warrior complete with spear so don’t argue with her, a Longship travelling through an icy sea, a viking warrior with shield, an appetizing plate of food and a chest full of treasure from their latest successful campaign.
There’s also the Arctic Fortune logo which is the wild symbol in this game. This can help you get some tidy wins by substituting for other symbols. Keep an eye out for it because this wild only crops up on the second and fourth reels. The scatter symbol here is a map and this plays its part in the bonus round.
If three or more of the map scatter symbols appear on the reels then this gets you into the free spins bonus game. Now this is no normal free spins round because it starts off with a viking facing an almighty adventure against some slightly large spiders. You have to shoot them to earn free spins, cash prizes and multipliers. Once that’s done though a spider that looks as if it’s a relation of King Kong appears. Again you have to shoot it to earn for more prizes and then ensure the door comes down crushing the monster.
Then it’s onto the free spins that you’ve earned and you can really win some decent prizes here with a maximum 6x multiplier and 40 free spins to be earned with a maximum of £9000 to be won.
This is a really enjoyable game to play and the bonus game is a delight to play. A real adventure to be had and you’re sure to give this Arctic Adventure a warm welcome.
