Where to play?
Developed by JustForTheWin, Tiki Vikings is an exciting new slot for 2019 you’ll definitely want to check out. What makes this slot appealing is the fact that it brings two different themes together: as its name suggests, it takes vikings and places them in a tropical Polynesian setting, albeit a rather snowy, wintry one. If you fancy seeing tough, seafaring vikings with flowers in their beards and pineapples for hats, this is the slot for you!
Tiki Vikings is played on a standard grid of three rows and five reels. There are 20 paylines in total, all of which run from left to right only. The slot has an RTP of 96.01%, which is about average compared with others. There are 32 betting options to choose from, ranging from 0.10 to 250 coins per spin. The slot’s paylines are fixed, so they’re all covered by all bets.
Symbols and Payouts
When spinning the reels of Tiki Vikings, there are eight symbols that can appear. The four low paying symbols are card ranks, each one represented as different-coloured wood carvings complete with flower adornments. These all offer payouts of 3x your stake for five on an active payline. Then there are three vikings: a blue-bearded one, a blonde one and a redhead, each one offering higher payouts than the one before it. The slot’s most valuable symbol, however, is the logo. Land five of these for a payout worth 15x your stake.
Most video slots these days have bonus symbols such as wilds and scatters. Tiki Vikings, however, doesn’t have bonus symbols of any kind. All of the slot’s symbols simply reward payouts for landing three or more on a payline and don’t have any additional effects.
There are two special features to look out for in Tiki Vikings that can help you bring in some big wins. The Symbol Lock Respin feature kicks in whenever you land a winning combination with a viking symbol or the logo symbol. Should this happen, all of the winning symbols will lock in place and you’ll get a respin. If any symbols matching the winning symbols land on the respin, these too will lock in place and you’ll get another respin. The feature comes to an end if you respin and no new winning symbols appear or if you manage to fill the screen with locked symbols.
The other special feature in Tiki Vikings is the Symbol Upgrade feature. The Symbol Upgrade metre increases by one whenever a respin results in a symbol getting locked in place. If you manage to fill the metre, all of the locked symbols currently on the reels are upgraded and become the next most valuable symbol according to the slot’s pay table. However, this won’t work if the locked symbol is the logo, as this is the slot’s highest paying symbol.
Tiki Vikings is a new slot for 2019 with quite an interesting theme. The design and presentation of the slot are both very impressive and as for the gameplay, it’s also pretty good. With this slot, you won’t find any wilds, scatters or free spins like you do in lots of other slots. However, the slot does have some good features. There’s a respins feature that launches whenever you win with one of the higher paying symbols. Plus, a metre upgrade feature gives you the chance to increase the value of respin wins. Overall, Tiki Vikings is on the simpler side thanks to the fact that there aren’t too many features. This slot is sure to appeal to anyone who enjoys creative themes and more straightforward gameplay.

Let’s hope the Tiki Vikings have some big wins lined up for you!
