Have you ever wondered what life must have been like back in the day? No technology, no transport and none of the things we take for granted every day – it must have been dreadful. But wonder no more! Vikings Unleashed Megaways aims to throw you headfirst into battle; swords and all and from as little as 20p a spin! Packed into the 6 reel slot is an impressive piece of tech known as Megaways – a Big Time Gaming slot mechanic which delivers a staggering number of ways to win in every spin. Unlike traditional slots, players will be treated to as many as 177,649 ways to win and more impressive is the ability to win up to 50,000x your stake!
Set upon the bow of a Viking ship, Vikings Unleashed Megaways is taking you on one hell of a voyage – you may need some sickness tablets because the oceans are positively stirring and it’s not only the winds that are whipping up, the bonus features are too, but if you’re not a fan of the chase, you have the option to buy-in – at a cost. There are many options on screen to help steer you in the right direction, but the pleasant user-interface will do nothing to distract you from your mission, should you wish to accept. Vikings Unleashed Megaways can be played across all devices instantly with no downloads required. Bets will suit players at both ends of the scale; low stakes and high rollers. Minimum bets will set you back just 20p whilst max bets come in at a pretty reasonable £10 a spin, but when playing max stakes, the buy0in option can cost a pretty penny, depending on the bonus feature that appeals to you the most.
Sailing onto the bonus features now and you’ll find cascading symbols, multipliers, free spins, scatter pays, mystery symbols, wilds and that buy-in option. Details on all of these and how to benefit from them can be found on this page.

To launch Vikings Unleashed Megaways on mobile or tablet, simply rotate your device to landscape mode and swipe up to play. Regardless of the device used, the slot machine will load to fit your screen. On the loading screen there will be a brief insight into the bonus features and what to expect; press continue when you have read these, and the slot machine will appear. Navigating the slot is identical to playing on desktop, the only difference is how you’re playing it.
Auto play is a handy feature for those who like to do more than press spin after spin. Ensure your bets have been set before acceding this feature, or you may find the reels spinning at a bet level which doesn’t suit your style of play. As many as 100 spins can play automatically, plus you have the ability to add a session loss limit and a single win limit too.
Ten symbols provide winning combinations ranging in value from 0.8x to 50x your stake and whilst the max stated seems a little mean for a slot machine, it is in fact nothing in comparison to the maximum win achievable of 50,000x your stake! Based on a combination of 6 matching symbols, here’s what you can expect to win:
Bear in mind there could be as many as 7 symbols on each of the 6 reels, which means you could have wins where there are more than 6 matching symbols. The key to big wins is the free spins bonus, which we explain in the next section.
All winning symbols in Vikings Unleashed Megaways will cause a chain reaction known as cascading symbols (or reels). This magnificent feature sees all winning symbols removed from the reels with new ones falling into their place; a process which can deliver more than one win in a single spin. If you find more wins, the cascading continues until there are no new winning combinations found.
Wilds are represented by the ‘wild’ block and it appears on all reels bar reel 1. The wild symbol can be used to help form wins by substituting for other symbols excluding scatter symbols. Mystery symbols are the hammer and can appear in any position. All hammer symbols will reveal themselves to be the same randomly chosen symbol (except scatters).
Scatter symbols are the ‘free spin’ symbols and they can appear in any of the reels but not in the positions above reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. Four scatter symbols in view awards 12 free spins. Every additional scatter symbol adds an extra 5 free spins. During the free spins feature there is an unlimited win multiplier active which starts at 1x and is increased by 1x after every cascade – this is the key to mega multiplier wins. During your free games, the positions above reels 2, 3, 4 and 5 can reveal free spins scatters and will award extra free spins; 3 symbols awards five extra free spins and 4 symbols awards ten extra free spins.
To add a little more thrills, you can control how you play your free spins, well, in other words you have the ability to gamble. Before the free spins start you can choose to gamble the number of spins you’ve been granted and/or the starting multiplier. 'Press to Gamble' on either pie to spin the corresponding wheel. A winning outcome of the pie will update both gamble pies for the next gamble. Any losing gamble will return the player back to the base game. The gamble will be capped at 27 spins and a 10x multiplier.
The big bet option – aka buy-in, allows you to eliminate the time it takes to land the free spins with one set amount of your choosing. Based on max stakes of £10 a spin, the buy in options are as follows:
