Tiki Vikings Slot Review
It seems that Vikings decided to take a break of plundering and to spend their summer holidays on a bit warmer place. Do not be surprised if you see a Viking ship on the shores of Hawaii, because this is their newest summer destination. Tiki Vikings is a five-reel, 20-payline video slot brought to us by the good people of Microgaming and Just For The Win. Playable from £0.10 per spin, the 2019 release will take you on a Hawaiian stage, where you will see how Vikings perform Symbol Lock Re-spins and Symbol Upgrades.
Due to the fact that Vikings got on the shores of Hawaii, it is no wonder that it is snowing there now. The group of Vikings that came on a summer vacation is not that big, only three of them are present on the stage. The Redbeard Viking is leading the group, followed by the Blonde Viking and a Viking that carries peculiar Sunglasses. There is also the Tiki Vikings logo, which is the highest-paying symbol of the 2019 release. Unfortunately, there are no Wilds on the offer, as well as Scatters that trigger bonus games.
By now you have probably realized that the Vikings are here simply to relax and they do not want any complicated adventures on their holiday. That is probably why Microgaming decided to keep the rules of the game as simple as possible. Tiki Vikings features five reels, three rows and benefits from 20 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. Land at least three matching symbols on a payline and you will start winning payouts. Betting starts at £0,10 per sin, and you cannot wager more than £250 per single spin.
The central attraction of the 2019 release is the Symbol Lock Re-spin feature. Land a winning combination containing high-value symbols and those symbols will lock, while other reels perform a respin. Respins continue until there are no more new winning symbols that appear on the reels, or until you fill all the cells with identical symbols.
Now, let us draw your attention to the Symbol Upgrade Meter, which appears during respins. Every winning combination will trigger the Meter and every new winning symbol that is locked on the reels will get you one step closer to the top. Once the Meter is full, the winning symbols will be upgraded. For example, the Redbeard Viking will be upgraded to the Tiki Vikings logo.
The Vikings are not here to steal and plunder, they are here to relax, so do not expect massive wins in the Microgaming title. The maximum possible payout is set somewhere around 300 times the bet. The Tiki Vikings logo is the symbol that pays the most, offering 15 times the bet for five of a kind. The Redbeard Viking will get you 7.5 times the bet for the maximum combination. Tiki Vikings’ RTP is 96.01%.
Tiki Vikings on Mobile
Not everybody can afford a trip to Hawaii and not every player will visit the Vikings and see how they enjoy themselves on the sandy beaches. Fortunately for us, the Microgaming title is playable across all devices so, if you feel that it is too hot outside, enjoy the 2019 release from the comforts of your homes, or experience Hawaii on the go.

Tiki Vikings is a visually impressive, easy-to-play video slot that offers no complicated additional features, only a relaxing Hawaiian soundtrack, lots of sun, sandy beaches and a satisfying max payout of 300 times the bet. If you thought that Vikings came here to plunder, then you should better look for action elsewhere. The Symbol Lock Re-spin feature and the Symbol Upgrade feature will keep you busy for a while. Unfortunately, there are no Wilds on the offer. Being action junkies ourselves, we could not spend much time on the island, but those of you looking for simplicity and relaxation should definitely visit Hawaii and see how the snow falls during summer.
