Online slot review: Hyper Viking
2021 was far too serious for our liking. In 2022 we’re ready to have some fun – and that’s where Hyper Viking comes in! New from Microgaming in partnership with Gameburger Studios, Hyper Viking takes the classic slots layout and adds some Nordic warrior flair for extra excitement. It’s all about pure enjoyment and traditional jackpot gaming, and that’s a combination we’re here for.
While Hyper Viking does make use of the hugely popular Viking theme, it blends it with retro slots elements like cherries, bar logos, sevens and more, combining old-school symbols with entertaining features like free spins, multipliers, scatters and wilds.
If you’re ready to go looting and pillaging for jackpots with Hyper Viking, you’ll have a 5×3 reel game area to play in, along with 20 active paylines, an RTP of 96.24%, a top payout of 2,000 your original bet, and non-stop slots adrenaline with every spin. Just the kind of rewards we like to see!
Before you set off on your Viking adventure of course, you’ll need to choose your bet size first – which you can do with a minimum bet of $0.20, a max bet of $60, or a bet of your choice anywhere in between. Once that’s taken care of, it’s time to go marauding!
Start the reels spinning, and keep an eye out for the wild as they come to a stop. That’s because this versatile symbol will act as a substitute for other symbols in the game (other than the scatters) helping to complete winning combinations on the way. Not only that, the wild is a valuable commodity on its own, paying out up to 125x your stake for up to 5 wilds on a payline.
The excitement doesn’t stop there though. As soon as the Viking warrior scatter appears anywhere from 3 to 9 times on the reels, it’ll trigger an automatic prize win for you – anywhere up to 2,000 times your original bet. Check the jackpot ladder on the left-hand side of the game area to see how many scatters you need for each available prize, then cross your fingers that they land!
While you’re waiting for that to happen though, you could stumble across some free spins in the meantime, which could mean even more winnings coming your way. Get 3 Hyper Viking logo scatters and you’ll trigger the bonus round for yourself, with a wheel spinning to bring free spins and multipliers your way. If Lady Luck is on your side, you could win the maximum of 30 free spins and a 3x multiplier for yourself. Additionally, 3 more scatters on the reels will instantly retrigger the feature for you, giving you the same number of free spins that the wheel originally awarded you at the beginning of the round.
2022 has barely begun but already we’re kicking into hyper drive with Hyper Viking, looking for the ultimate in slots play and jackpot winnings too. If that’s the same journey you’re on, then come join us in our quest, and look forward to action-packed gaming and riches worthy of a Viking warrior!
Happy Spinning 🙂
