Erik The Red is an entertaining video slot by Relax Gaming and is one of their earlier releases

Relax Gaming is here to stay and has shown us they can develop unique competitive video slots. Just look at wonderful slots such as Money Train and Temple Tumble (one of our favourite Megaways slots).

Erik The Red gameplay and features

Everything in this video slot revolves around the tough-looking Viking, Erik The Red and his beloved Helga. Together they sail the rough seas in search of new villages to plunder and destroy. Isn’t that romantic?!

Slots about Vikings are enormously popular, especially in the Scandinavian countries. And because Swedes, Finns, Danes and Norwegians love to gamble at an online casino, there are a disproportionate number of online slots with a Viking theme.

Check it out: Vikings and Asgardian Stones by Netent, Viking Clash by Push Gaming, Viking Runecraft by Play’n Go and Vikings Go Wild by Yggdrasil.

And they are just the first ones to pop in our head.

Not that we mind: Vikings are tough and mysterious; the perfect premise for an exciting online slot.

Paylines  and betting levels: play from as little as $€ 0.10

Erik The Red is played on 5 reels with 4 rows of symbols. There are 25 fixed paylines, and the graphics look fabulous.

You can start placing bets as low as $€ 0.10, which goes all the way up to a maximum of $€ 100.

Variance and payout rate of Erik The Red

The theoretical payout rate of Erik The Red is very high: 96.95%

The variance is somewhere between low and medium. You won’t be getting rich with this slot, but it is all very entertaining, that’s for sure.

Symbols and payouts

Erik The Red and his wife Helga are the two premium symbols and are worth 4 x and 2.5 x the bet respectively with a 5-of-a-kind.

The medium value symbols consist of typical Viking attributes: a helmet, an axe and a horn. These will pay out between 1 x and 1.5 x the bet with five of the same ones on an active payline.

The low-value symbols consist of 3 coloured shields and are good for a maximum of anywhere between 0.5 x and 0.8 x the total bet.

The wild symbol replaces all other symbols (except the scatters). The wild also has the highest value: 5 x the total bet for every 5-of-a-kind.

Free spin bonus with sticky expanded wilds

Three or more scatters will get you 8 free spins.

The aim is to collect scatter symbols during the free spins.

Every scatter fills in part of the word “Wild” that is placed atop every reel. Did you complete the word “Wild”? Then the entire reel becomes an expanded wild, for the remainder of the free spins.

Scatters also bring you extra free spins, leading to some very nice results in the bonus round.

The maximum achievable is a screen full of wilds, which will get you 125 x the total bet per spin.

Stacked symbols

For every spin, there is one designated stacked symbol. This symbol can now occur in stacks on the reels. This setup regularly leads to an (almost) full screen of identical symbols.

Our verdict on the Erik The Red video slot

Erik The Red is a beautiful video slot. It looks sweet, has a fun bonus feature and a very high payout rate of almost 97%.

A slightly higher variance would have been nice as far as we are concerned, but that does not change the fact that we were very impressed with this online slot.

Do give the reels of Erik the Red some spins and see for yourself.

3.8 out of 5 stars.
