The immense success of the series virtually obligated Netent to dig deep into their creative chests and produce a spectacular slot, not just visually but one that brings to live the fearless characters and provides high win potential. The result does not disappoint. A typical battle field at dawn with wavering fog and a battle standard are the fitting background to a translucent reel set. The main pay symbols are authentic depictions of Ragnar Lothbrok and Lagertha and can appear stacked on all reels. A minutely synchronized soundtrack with battle noises and cries of the vikings completes a superb slot creation.
The graphics are extremely crisp and the animations stunning. The vulture appearing on big wins is mesmerizing to watch.
