Microgaming has released a brand new slot titled Tiki Vikings.
The popular slot provider, which is responsible for games such as Thunderstruck II and Immortal Romance, teamed up with fellow game provider JustForTheWin for the online slot.
Tiki Vikings is an unusual slot, combining the palm trees and pineapples of Hawaii and the cold snow and Vikings from Norse mythology.
The game uses a 5×3 layout with 20 paylines and boasts several exciting features such as the Symbol Lock Re-spin and the Symbol Upgrade, both of which can help you land bigger winning combinations.
After landing a winning combination, players trigger the Symbol Lock Re-spin feature where winning symbols are locked onto the reels during an extra spin, helping you to land more wins. Landing additional winning symbols will trigger the feature again.
Whenever players freeze symbols, the symbol upgrade meter at the side of the reels increases. Players fill the meter by landing three consecutive locked symbol re-spins. When the feature is triggered, players are rewarded with the Symbol Upgrade feature which transforms all locked symbols into the next highest-paying symbol.
Both features provide players with plenty of chances to make big winning combinations and numerous payouts, which is great.
James Buchanan, the Director of Global Operations at Microgaming, said in a statement: “JustForTheWin have delivered yet another entertaining and highly original slot game. Tiki Vikings merges two popular themes to great effect, providing players with a colourful and fun base game, boosted with excellent bonus mechanics.
“The symbol re-lock and symbol upgrade features add a tremendous sense of energy and momentum to the gameplay, offering the potential for huge rewards.”
Johan Persson, the CEO at JustForTheWin, added: “Tiki Vikings is a wacky mashup that’s particularly close to our hearts here at JustForTheWin. We’ve had a blast putting together a cast of grumpy but loveable Viking characters.
“They’re all fresh from an awesome tropical vacation, and they’ve brought the relaxed, sun-kissed Tiki vibes back home to the icy Scandinavian tundra. Naturally, our bearded friends’ Hawaiian party keeps freezing in the frosty climate – luckily for players, that means the potential for big wins!”
