Norse mythology is a tried-and-tested slot theme, so it is hardly a surprise to see GONG Gaming Technologies decided to use it. The up-and-coming young studio, which is part of Microgaming’s stable, joins the history of Norse slots with its Viking Queen game. Players are invited to take to the seas and spin the reels on this icy adventure that boasts exciting features and a jackpot worth 2,000x your bet!
Once the game loaded, we were instantly put on board the Viking ship to set sail across the seas of Scandinavia. The Viking Queen slot has a 5x3 configuration allowing for 25 fixed paylines. This standard reel setup sits atop an animated backdrop showing seas and Drakkar boats. Sure, it is pretty standard stuff for Norse themes, but GONG Gaming has done an excellent job. Animations are smooth, and the overall design is classy and appealing.
Following the standard approach to slot gameplay, the 11 regular symbols on Viking Queen are split into low and high-value groups. Lower cards are traditional A-9 card symbols. High-value cards take inspiration from Viking culture. From lowest to the highest value, the symbols are goblets, eyeteeth, panthers, wolves, and bears.
While the Viking Queen free spins round makes up the bulk of big wins on this game, we were never bored in the base game. That’s because a multiplier makes hanging around in the base game worthwhile. The Map feature is sitting on the left of the reels, which shows the multiplier (up to 10x) that is accumulating for when the free spins round triggers.
The Viking Queen slot relies heavily on the Free Spins feature, where most wins come from. However, unlike in most games, you'll surely want to stay in the base game for as long as possible to collect multipliers and get a much more rewarding bonus round.
As you advance with collecting shields, the symbols become Free Spins symbols, effectively starting the free spins round (you need at least three symbols). The game starts with ten initial free spins with the Map multiplier attached to each spin. Each new shield symbol that lands during this round reward you with one extra free spin, with up to 50 spins available in total.
Thanks to the Viking Queen RTP of 96.92% and medium volatility, this math model provides frequent returns. With that in mind, it is a perfect slot for most players, although high rollers may find the 2,000x bet jackpot too low. We strongly recommend finding out for yourself by setting sail on the Viking Queen slot today.
