Get Ready To raid with Tiki Vikings Slot
A real Viking must have been terrifying to encounter, assuming you were tucked away in your village and the Viking was trying to hack his way in through the wall. But now, imagine putting a few flowers in his hair, or bananas in his ears, and the scary stops being so overbearing. This seems to have been the idea behind the brand new Tiki Vikings slot. This soon-to-be-released online casino game features a curious cartoon theme, sure to get a chuckle. But don’t let that fool you; the gameplay is fun and engaging, featuring a truly unique set of bonuses.
Tiki Vikings is due out on the 7th of August 2019 and you can join in the fun at 7Sultans Casino on desktop or mobile!

It seems to have been the developer’s intention to blow players away, and leave them dazzled with a one of a kind experience. In that regard they achieved their goal. Visit 7Sultans for yourself on release day, and enjoy what these talented studios put so much time and effort into creating.
A Visual Feast
Designing a slots theme is a tricky business. The symbols must be easily distinguishable, letting players clearly know when they have won. But they must also be entertaining, engaging players and drawing them into the game. But what about having a group of Vikings that appear to have landed up in a tropical Hawaiian paradise, and adopted the local culture? A bearded man with floral glasses, or a fierce warrior with a half a pineapple on his head is what we land up with. To call it charming is an understatement. These silly characters are joined by a more traditional slot game staples; A, K, Q, and J, but given a wooden makeover and a few flower decorations of their own. There are no Scatter or Bonus Symbols, which is part of what sets this game apart. Read on to learn how the system works.
The Nitty Gritty
Let’s learn more about the specifications that make this 5 reel, 20 payline game work. It is a medium volatility title, with a 96.01% return to player ratio. The hit rate is 20.97%, which means that wins may be less frequent, but are big when they do arrive. Betting limits are set at 0.10 to 250.00 coins per spin.
As is expected with an online slot, the objective is to place a wager, and spin the reels. Symbols land in the play area, with the objective being to create winning combinations. A winning combination will be when matching symbols land beside one another, with the same symbols matching with themselves. Different symbols result in higher or lower payouts, depending on their value. You can check the pay table to see which are the most valuable. A new wager must be made before each spin, with the value of the wager determining the value of the payout. You can raise or lower your wager between spins, as you see fit.
Big Paying Bonuses
These days it is commonplace to see Scatter and Wild symbols in a game, and this is where Tiki Vikings really stands apart. They have been done away with in favour of a new system that is unlike other slots. It is called the Symbol Lock Re-Spin system, and is easy to understand. It activates when valuable symbols land on the reels. These symbols are locked into place, and a free re-spin is awarded. But the fun doesn’t stop there…
If an additional win is achieved after the first re-spin, the second winning combination is also locked into place, and another re-spin is granted. Each time this feature is activated, a gauge, called the Symbol Upgrade Meter fills up a little. If the gauge reaches the top, all the locked combinations on the reels are transformed, becoming a more valuable combination. Big payouts are awarded, putting a smile on your face, and Viking loot in your pockets.
Some may be surprised to not see the expected Wild and Bonus symbols, but this unique angle more than makes up for their absence. Give it a try for yourself, and you might just discover you have a new favourite slot that will keep you coming back again and again.
