Tiki Vikings

Tiki Vikings

Tiki Vikings is arguably one of the most creative and inventive slots to debut in the online casino world for a very long time. It has been developed by Just For The Win (JFTW) and distributed by Microgaming on their Quickfire platform. The baffling slot is, precisely as it sounds, a game which works both Tiki island culture and Vikings into its theme. It shouldn’t work; it certainly doesn’t sound it would work. Oddly enough, though, it does. 

This slot debuted in late in the summer of 2019, and is, therefore, fully mobile-friendly. The game contains 20 paylines which span its 5 reels, and players can expect to find fair and reasonable wagers. A floor bet of 10p is present, so you’re already getting a two-for-one deal on paylines. At the upper end of the wagering spectrum, stakes are met with a ceiling bet of £250 a spin. With a little bit of luck (okay, perhaps a lot), players can walk away with a non-progressive jackpot worth 300x their bet in this game. That prize is only paid out if five of the Tiki Vikings logos appears on any payline. 

Special Features 

Ordinary gaming protocols seem to have gone out of the window with this release. For starters, there is a Symbol Lock feature in the game. This is a re-spin bonus which is triggered whenever three Viking or Tiki Viking icons appear in a winning combo. It will lock those symbols into place, while all other positions on the reels will re-spin. If further symbols can be added to the combination, then further re-spins are offered, until no new symbols appear in the win. 

Also included in this casino game is a symbol upgrade feature. Once you trigger the Symbol Lock round, it will start to fill up. The two columns are displayed to the left and right of the main reel set. Once they are filled, the feature will upgrade any symbols which appear in the Symbol Lock round to the next highest paying icon. As you can imagine, this is no bad thing to have included in the game. It ramps up a player’s chance of walking away with a considerable winning combo, and few will grumble at that. 

Bonus Features 

The two special features already mentioned are the only two to appear in this game. Unfortunately, Just For The Win and Microgaming didn’t consider it necessary to include any wild symbols or free spins in this release. To be fair, though, the original features in this game ensure that you won’t miss either of those not included in the game too much. 

Overview 

Tiki Vikings is something wholly different in terms of theme. It has clever and different features than what players are used to. Moreover, it is also a low-risk game, with a relatively low volatility level. To that end, it should be appealing to players on all budgets. This is a game which you may wish to check out.
