Throughout 2018 Blueprint Gaming slots have just got better and better particularly with them launching their MegaWays slots which offer spectacular graphics and design coupled with a seriously good soundtrack that is reminiscent of a film or television series, just think Vikings! The slot is set aboard a long ship and players can expect to see Norse styled symbols on their reels which include the usual playing card symbols Ace through to 9, a male and female Viking, Berzerker and a sorcerer. The male Viking symbol is most rewarding and rewards players with x50 of their stake when they land 6 on any single pay line. There is also a wild that can substitute for all other symbols with the exception of the scatter to create winning combinations. Thanks to the MegaWays engine the number of ways players can win varies on each and every spin up to a whopping 117,649!
The mystery symbol is represented by Thor’s hammer and this morphs a symbol that is chosen at random excluding the scatter and wild top provide even more potential for winning, and this is what is known as the Mystery Symbol feature. Players will soon realize that Vikings Unleashed MegaWays really comes down to the Battle of the Seas Free Spins feature which players can launch by landing four scatters, for which they are awarded 12 free spins. For every extra scatter they then land they are rewarded with an additional 5 free spins. As soon as the feature becomes active, the Gamble feature also comes into play and players can then make the choice whether they gamble their multiplier or free spins.
Landing a successful gamble will see either the multiplier or free spins increase by 1 to a maximum of 27 free spins or x10 multiplier, lose the gamble and they are immediately taken back to the base game. Once players are in the feature, they are awarded 1x multiplier and every time they land a win the symbols that have created the wins disappear and are replaced by new ones. Further wins and the multiplier increases by 1 with no limit on how high the multiplier can reach, better still the feature can be reactivated with unlimited free spins available. The final feature is the Free Spins Unleashed Bet feature, which sees players able to buy into the Battle of the Seas Free Spins feature. Once in the feature players have four options to choose from.
The first choice is 5 free spins and a start of x1 multiplier for the cost of x25 of their stake, or players can choose 8 free spins and a start of x1 multiplier for the cost of x50 of their stake, the third choice is 10 free spins and a start of x1 multiplier for the cost of x75 of their stake and finally 12 free spins and a start of x1 multiplier for the cost of x100 of their stake. Players will not be surprised to find out that Vikings Unleashed MegaWays is a high variance slot, particularly as there are maximum winnings on offer of x10,000 times their stake with each and every free spin. I really enjoyed playing this slot, it offers stunning visuals and the mystery symbols in the base game provided a great additional extra. There is no doubt that the most attractive feature is the Battle of the Seas Free Spins feature as this is where the big wins are made.
