Blueprint Gaming’s Vikings Unleashed Megaways is an exciting and beautiful Megaways slot.

But there is much more:

  • A Bonus Gamble Feature
  • Buy a Bonus
  • Mystery symbols
  • Beautiful graphics

The cooperation between Blueprint Gaming and Big Time Gaming, whereby the former may release Megaways slots under license, seems to be a “marriage made in heaven” so far.

Big Time Gaming delivers the technology, and Blueprint Gaming provides the ideas, the creativity and the new features.

Vikings Unleashed is Blueprint’s sixth Megaways™ slot of 2018.

Other successful releases in that year are Primal Megaways™ and Buffalo Rising Megaways™, amongst others.

Vikings Unleashed Megaways gameplay and features

The game mechanism is almost identical to that of the famous Bonanza slot, where the success story of the big-reeled slots all started.

There are two sets of reels: a fixed reel at the top with 1 row and 6 variable reels at the bottom.

Each spin changes the number of rows, giving you different ways to win each spin.

The maximum number of ways to win is 117,649.

Betting is done from $€ 0.20 per spin, which rises to $€ 10 per spin.

Variance and payout rate

In the bonus game, you can win unlimited free spins and infinite multipliers.

The variance is, therefore, enormously high.

So high that Blueprint Gaming has limited the maximum winnings.

You can win a maximum of $€ 250,000 or 50,000 x the total bet.

The theoretical payout percentage is 96.50%.

An excellent percentage, although this slot’s volatility will lead your balance through deep valleys and high mountain tops.

Symbols and payouts

The 4 Vikings are worth the most: between 2 x and 50 x the bet for every 6-of-a-kind.

The card symbols award you between 0.8 x and 1 x the bet for a 6-of-a-kind. However, don’t think these “low” symbols can’t make you rich.

All symbols appear in stacks, and together with the win-all-ways dynamic, wilds and multipliers (in the bonus round), astronomical wins can occur.

Winning combinations on the bottom set of 6 reels disappear and make way for new ones, which come falling.

The upper set of reels allows the symbols to move from right to left.

The wild symbol replaces all symbols except the scatters.

If you spin 4 scatters, you win 12 free spins.

Every extra scatter gives you +5 extra free spins.

Buy a Bonus

Don’t you feel like waiting for those 4 scatters? Just choose the Buy a Bonus option.

This buys you, as it were, an admission ticket to those possibly very lucrative bonuses.

The disadvantage?

It will cost you dearly:

  • 5 free spins with 1 x multiplier: 25 x the bet
  • 8 free spins with 1 x multiplier: 50 x the bet
  • 10 free spins with 1 x multiplier: 75 x the bet
  • 12 free spins with 1 x multiplier: 100 x the bet

Bonus Gamble Feature

Blueprint has come up with another cool idea. After you buy a bonus, you can choose to enhance its value with more free spins and extra multipliers.

Click on the left gamble button to attempt to win more free spins and on the right for extra multipliers.

Player beware! Although the chance you win (on green) is much higher than the possibility of losing (on red), you can lose everything in one spin.

Free spins bonus

The free spins bonus gives an extra multiplier after each winning spin.

You can profit from this feature until the very last turn, so it only goes up and never down.

With some luck, you hit a multiplier of 15 x – 25 x and then rewards can skyrocket.

Several of Thor’s hammer symbols may appear on the reels at any point in the game.

All of them change into the same symbol and can result in enormous rewards especially if you can spin a few wilds during the game.

The Vikings greet big wins with beautiful animations, so you too will feel a winner soon.

If you did not already.
