Volatile Vikings by Relax Gaming is set for release on the 21/09/2021 and as its namesake suggest will be a highly volatile slot release with an RTP of 96.44% and a max win of 20,000x! Here we will take a look at the games many features and bonus round providing first look pictures and videos before giving our overall Genius Gambling Review and Rating.
Set across 6x5 reels Volatile Vikings is home to low paying symbols depicted here as different coloured runes with the higher paying symbols being characterised as Viking faces. The player will need to land at least 8 matching symbols across the game grid in order to unlock a win with the winning symbols being removed from the game and new symbols cascading from the top of the game grid to fill their space. Each spin starts with 2 multiplier reveal symbols, one on reel 3 and another on reel 4. Each of these symbols has a counter and a multiplier attached to them with the counter reducing by one after each successive win. Once the counter reaches zero the multiplier is activated and destroys all adjacent symbols making room for an additional cascade, upon no more wins being created the multiplier will be applied to the overall win generated so far.
Volatile Vikings Free Spins round is won by landing three scatter chests across the game grid, this will unlock 6 free spins for the player with any additional scatter symbols awarding an extra spin when landed prior or during the free spins round. Any multiplier reveal symbols unlocked during the free spins will add on top of each other and hold throughout the spins hopefully awarding a bigger multiplier come the end of the free spins round.
Genius Gambling Review
Volatile Vikings is a surprisingly simple slot release however this isn't necessarily a bad thing! Its easy to understand concept and guaranteed shot at two multipliers every spin in the base game are a great addition as the potential for a big win is ever present. Unfortunately the bonus round really doesn't do anything to differentiate itself from the base game, other than the multipliers being persistent throughout the spins there isn't anything else of note separating it from the base game which is a slight disappointment and something that really lets the overall game down. There is a solid yet simple concept here but with it being so heavily mirrored in both the base and bonus game it may become quite dull over an extended play session. We are sure regardless of this that the 20,000x max win will be a sure fire draw for a lot of player. Because of these reasons we award Relax Gaming's Volatile Vikings our Genius Gambling Rating of 7 out of 10! and look forward to its release on the 21/09/2021.
