Tiki Vikings 908 x 624

Just when you thought you’d seen it all, Microgaming has teamed up with Just For The Win Studios to bring you a Polynesian-slash-Norse online slot experience that would have moved Thor Heyerdahl to tears.

The slot is designed to be lighthearted with volatility that sits somewhere between low and medium, and a slightly unimpressive RTP of 95%. A maximum payout potential of 300 x your bet immediately flags this slot as inappropriate for high rollers, but you could still walk away with a couple extra hundred in your pocket.

Now, I’m fairly certain the Vikings never attempted to conquer Hawaii, but let’s find out if we can persuade these warriors to bring home a win.

Tiki Vikings - Theme and Background

Tiki Vikings comes with a heavy dose of humor, starting with its rather ridiculous title. Loading up the slot you’ll be greeted by the beefy faces of several Norse vikings who appear to have run headfirst through tropical bushes. The usual scowls and unruly hair are still present, but their effect has been somewhat diminished by flowers nestled prettily in beards, and pineapples sprouting out above frowning brows. The designers did a great job of crafting the characters, and even if the theme isn’t your usual thing, you have to admire the creativity. The music is traditional luau, which is relaxing, overlaid by less relaxing snarls and grunts from the vikings.

As far as storylines go, the player can only assume that a set of Viking warriors succeeded in breaching the Pacific, landing on an island laden with fauna and flora. Keeping the different warriors company across the reels are A, K, Q, and J symbols which have been marked out on pieces of driftwood in colorful paint. For some reason these don’t feel like a lazy addition this time, I guess the combination just works. The remaining symbol is the slot’s game logo, which also happens to carry the highest value.

Tiki Vikings - Gameplay

I was initially fairly dismayed when I took a first look at the slot’s special features. There’s absolutely no sign of any Wilds, or even a Free Spins feature. So where is a player supposed to score their best wins? Read on to find out.

Tiki Vikings Symbol 1

Symbol Lock Re-Spins

Standing in for a free spins feature is a combination of locking symbols and re-spins. If any symbol except for the J, Q, K or A produce a win, those symbols will lock in place and a single Re-spin will be awarded. Any additional symbols that are identical to the winning symbols will also be locked once they land. If further matching symbols do land and lock, then another Re-spin is awarded.

With every spin that results in at least one symbol lock, the Symbol Upgrade meter on the left of the grid will increase by one notch. The Re-spin feature will end when no additional Re-spins are awarded, or when all symbols on the screen are locked. It’s during this feature that a player can unlock the top prize of 300 x your bet.

Tiki Vikings Symbol 2

Symbol Upgrades

This feature is run by a Symbol Upgrade Meter that’s constantly visible on the left of the screen, and works in tandem with the Re-spin feature. The goal is to fill the meter with symbols, triggering the feature one the meter has been filled to the top. The locked symbols you land during the Symbol Lock Re-spins are what fill the meter. As a result, it is possible to engage both features in a single spin.

When the Symbol Upgrade meter is full, all locked symbols will upgrade to the next more valuable symbol and the meter will reset. Unfortunately the highest value symbol can’t be upgraded, so this does limit your win potential.

Tiki Vikings - Payouts and Wagering Limits

With betting options starting at C$0.10 up to a maximum of C$250, the slot is unlikely to appeal to high rollers. The 20 active lines can only promise a top win of 300 x your bet, so smaller budget players are far more likely to want to engage. The top win can be unlocked in two ways; either through the re-spin special feature, or by collecting 5 of the game’s logo symbol. The lack of a huge variety of symbols is a good thing, because it increases player chances of making up winning combinations. And the wins do come fairly frequently, giving you a decent chance at walking away with a win.

The Tiki Vikings game logo is the most valuable symbol on the grid, paying out 15 x your bet for 5 of a kind. This is followed by the orange bearded viking at 7.5 x, the viking with a pineapple on his head at 5 x, and the viking with blue flowered shades for 3.5 x. The lowest value symbols are A, K, Q and J, each paying up to 3 x for 5 of the same on a winning payline. This is a lot more value than you usually get with card suits.

So let’s get one thing straight. If you’re the kind of player who chases down massive wins, you would be wasting your time with Tiki Vikings. This slot has been designed for players looking for an entertaining experience and a few nights of beer money. On those grounds, it’s an extremely satisfying option. I walked away with C$240 and a significantly improved mood, thanks to frequent wins and some enjoyable be-flowered viking action.
