Viking Fury Spinfinity Slot Review 2023
We’re Valhalla bound once more with Blueprint Gaming and their newest slot, Viking Fury Spinfinity!
Viking Fury Spinfinity stands out straight away with compelling vibrant graphics and nordic music to set the mood, but will Blueprint’s latest ‘raid’ prove to be a successful release? Rise of Atlantis certainly was, and the two may have more in common than meets the eye.
Viking Fury Spinfinity isn’t Blueprint’s first rodeo, with games like Viking Fall and the classic and beloved Vikings Unleashed Megaways as evidence of their previous nordic adventures. Could Viking Fury hold a candle to classics like these?
Join us in our longboat as we set sail on a potentially fruitful journey where we’ll pillage for riches, mead and glory.
Viking Fury Spinfinity – The Base Game and Features
Viking Fury is a 6-reel slot with a Scatter Pays mechanic. Forming a win requires at least 8 of any symbol in view anywhere on the reels.
The minimum bet is £/€0.20 per spin, and the highest bet is £/€20 per spin. An Extra Bet Feature is also available. This increases the stake by 25% but reduces the number of scatters needed to trigger the bonus by 1.
The Spinfinity Mechanic differentiates Viking Fury from other slots that share similar features. Instead of cascading reels, Viking Fury Spinfinity uses the Spinfinity mechanic to open up the game for further wins.
Any win will cause the symbols to step in the direction of the compass points, taking the reels left, right, up or down. The Spinfinity mechanic continues until no more wins are generated.
It certainly keeps things interesting, and you might be wondering what the point of varying directions is if you’re unsure of what each direction holds in terms of new symbols. It’s easy to think that each direction would hold an equal outcome, but depending on where the concentration of winning symbols is, it could be more strategic to move up than down, or left than right.
Viking Fury Multipliers
Viking Fury Multipliers enhances the game further with multipliers to up the ante.
Viking Fury Multipliers can be triggered randomly on any spin., The Multiplier will accumulate with every step the reel takes, and at the end of the spinfinity the accumulated multiplier is applied to the total win. In other words, the longer the reels walk, the bigger the multiplier, the bigger the wins.
The Wild Symbol doubles up as a bonus scatter symbol. Wilds substitute for any symbol, and collecting 4 or more (or 3 with extra bet) triggers Free Spins.
Viking Fury Spinfinity – Free Spins
The Viking Fury feature is awarded at the start of Free Spins to add multipliers to the reels. During Free Spins, Multipliers are accumulated until they pay. Collecting 4 bonus symbols within Free Spins will award an additional 3 Free Spins.
At the end of the initial Free Spins, if there is still a multiplier active then a Multiplier guarantee is awarded. During a multiplier guarantee, Free Spins are unlimited until a win is achieved.

Viking Fury Spinfinity – Our Verdict
Viking Fury Spinfinity is a fun game with simple, staple features and a few additions to make it even more intriguing.
At the start of our review, we compared it to Rise of Atlantis, but the Spinfinity mechanic does well to make them look quite different. Spinfinity as a trade-off for cascading reels is interestingly refreshing, and when Viking Fury Multipliers come into play it adds a very interesting level of depth and even greater potential.
If we had one complaint, it’s that it doesn’t seem evident from the game information if the Ultimate Fury mode is obtainable via organic means, i.e., no bonus buys. The regular Free Spins mode is impressively capable, but the thought of being locked out of an enhanced mode stings a little. Of course, jurisdictional hurdles aren’t Blueprint’s fault, but it would have been nice if there was a way to trigger such a mode organically.
Other than that, Viking Fury Spinfinity looks very appealing. Blueprint Gaming Slots hold a special place in the heart of many with classic games woven fondly in the memory of players everywhere, and Viking Fury feels like it could be just as endeared by players as many of the Blueprint greats that we still play years after their release.
