Vikings Unleashed Reloaded Slot Review 2024

Skol! Vikings Unleashed Reloaded from Blueprint Gaming brings back an old classic, and it’s bigger and better than ever before.

Vikings Unleashed Megaways was rather unique in that it let you gamble your spins and multiplier for the chance of a starting configuration that could propel the wins to astronomical heights. The ‘max max’ was always exciting, and to crank things up a notch comes the reloaded version, which lets players gamble the starting Megaways for even greater potential.

Aesthetically, Vikings Unleashed Reloaded looks just like we remember it. You’d be hard-pressed to tell the difference if you don’t pay attention to the logo, but Vikings Unleashed Reloaded certainly feels like a different game when the Viking raid begins.

Without further ado, let’s hop on the longboats for an unforgettable journey with our favourite Vikings.

Vikings Unleashed Reloaded Base Game

Vikings Unleashed Reloaded Base Game and Features

Vikings Unleashed Reloaded is a 6-reel Video Slot with up to 117,649 ways to win. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols (or 2 or more of the Highest-paying symbol) land from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.

The minimum bet available here is £.€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £.€10 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two.

Vikings Unleashed Reloaded brings back some familiar faces, with High-paying symbols falling to the Viking with the Gold Frame, Wizard, Viking Lady, and the Viking with the Purple Background. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten, and Nine. Wilds substitute for all High and Low-paying symbols in the paytable.

Each time a winning combination forms, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels, making room for new symbols to drop in from above via a Cascade feature.

In addition to this, there is also an additional Sliding Reel above the main reel set that holds up to 4 High and Low-paying symbols. Symbols from this reel that are part of a winning combination will also be removed, and all remaining symbols will move over to the left in order to fill the empty positions.

Mystery Symbols

During any random spin in both the base game and Free Spins round, Mystery symbols in the form of Hammers can randomly appear across the reels. Once in view, they will reveal the same High or Low-paying symbol from the paytable in order to improve or create a winning combination.

Vikings Unleashed Reloaded: Free Spins

Landing 4 or more Scatter symbols across the reels in the base game automatically triggers the Free Spins round.

Before the Free Spins round can begin, you will be given the option to Gamble your Free Spins for more and give yourselves a head start by gambling for a higher Multiplier and a minimum number of Megaways.

  • Free Spins Wheel – Gamble your Free Spins up to a maximum of 30.
  • Megaways Wheel – Gamble the minimum number of Megaways up to a maximum of 117,649.
  • Multiplier Wheel – Gamble the starting Multiplier value up to a maximum of x10.

Each Gamble Wheel is represented by a Green and Red segment. Landing the cursor on the Green segment means the Gamble has been successful and the new number of Free Spins, Multiplier, or Megaways is awarded.

If you happen to land on the Red segment, the Gamble has been lost and you will return to the base game empty-handed. You can also use the arrows provided to alter your Gamble, but this will change the size of the Green and Red segments.

If you’re not one to take risks or are happy with your Gamble setup so far, simply click the Collect button at the bottom of the screen and the Free Spins round will begin.

During Free Spins, with your original or new setup equipped, the current Global Win Multiplier will increase by +x1 each time a winning combination forms and a Cascade occurs. This does not reset in between spins and is applied to future wins during this time.

Landing 3 or more Scatter symbols in the top Sliding Reel during this time will award additional Free Spins.

Vikings Unleashed Reloaded: Our Verdict

Vikings Unleashed Reloaded feels very similar to how it did, but the new gamble option can make all the difference. Vikings Unleashed and Vikings Unleashed Reloaded stand out as games that can do incredible things, provided you’ve got the bottle required to gamble, and you need some serious bottle to make it all the way.

Even in demo mode, we sat on the edge of our seats wondering if we should take a great config or gamble for a great one. The pain of losing it all was inexpressible, and with real money, you’d be inconsolable. Very rarely do we encounter games that make us advise caution, but Vikings Unleashed Reloaded certainly feels like one of those beasts.

With a standard configuration, Vikings Unleashed Reloaded is still capable enough to wow Megaways fans, but the extra spins, Megaways and Multiplier make an unbelievable difference. In our testing, we got the maximum configuration on a 20p stake, and it paid £4,000. Of course, the gamble to the top won’t be easy, and the Megaways gamble wheel is particularly brutal.

Overall, Vikings Unleashed Reloaded was a game we never knew we needed a sequel to, but we’re glad it’s here. It’s an unforgiving monster, but it can be as tame as you like if you prefer to stay away from gambles.
