Betsoft Gaming, which was named the Best Casino Supplier of the Year at the 2018 Malta iGaming Excellence Awards, is the maker of Viking Age slots. Betsoft Gaming, located in Malta, is a maker of 200 titles for desktops and mobiles used in the iGaming industry. Its games are powered by cutting-edge technology like true-3D, SLOTS3, itsToGo series, and the newShift environment, which drastically reduces file size and improvesonline streamlining integration.
These innovations deliver an excellent audio-visual environment that is more typical of movies and video games than slots, which leads to a more gratifying game play experience for the player. Similar to most Betsoft offerings, Viking Age is built on a 30 payline, 5-reel grid system. As usual, the visuals are cinematically clear and the graphical transitions are smooth and stable.
The characters represent the culture and life of the mythological Viking era and include a rune stone, a flag, a wheel, a long-haired redhead, a Viking helmet, an ax, the ubiquitous treasure lode, a Viking ship, a Viking hero and a battle-worn Viking captain. The Bonus symbol is the arm wrestling icon.
The Betsoft online casino’s platform is set up to allow gamers to play for real money or play for fun. Coins come in denominations of NZD150, NZD75, NZD0.50 and NZD0.02, with a maximum of 5 coins for each payline. The greatest payout possible is 7500 coins or NZD3750. The game comes equipped with several bonus features as well as a bonus game, but it lacks a multiplier symbol or Wild icon. Additionally, it lacks an auto play feature but does have a MaxBet button to load all your reels with the maximum amount of coins for the convenience of high rollers.
Viking Age contains three exceptional bonus features like a Bonus Game round, an arm wrestling contest, a Click Me round, and Free Spins, which are activated by getting three Amma (the redhead) icons on a single payline. The more Amma symbols you get the more free spins you get, plus a 1x to 5x multiplier. If you land at least three Viking helmet icons, you earn a Click Me bonus round.
During the Click Me bonus round, Amma will take you to three stone doors with runes carved on them, and you are prompted to select only one door. When you select your door of choice, it will open revealing your prize. The Arm Wrestling Bonus round is activated when you see at least 3 arm wrestling icons on the reels. The object is to choose which one of the two arm wrestlers will win the contest by picking heads or tails on a coin toss.
With additional coin tosses you will choose again and if you choose correctly you add power to your wrestler, thereby increasing the strength of your wrestler and his chances of winning the arm-wrestling match. If you do not choose correctly the opposing wrestler gains more power and so you stand to lose the arm wrestling match or at least reduce the amount of money you would have otherwise won. Triggering bonus rounds is always the best way to win big in a slots game but it is not that easy to trigger any of the bonus features in Viking Age.
As you can see, the Viking Age by Betsoft is an interesting and entertaining slots game to play. It has all the modern bells and whistles, yet it is not very complicated to play. The action is rather slow and there are no surprises, just straight slots fun.
