«The Vikings» slot machine has five reels and twenty pay lines. It is allowed to use any number of active lines to play, but bet per each of them have to be equal. The slot accepts up to one hundred coins of value in range from one cent to five dollars per each of the lines.

Symbols are located in three rows at the main screen (there are fifteen elements totally). The range of available features includes basic and special symbols, the gambling feature and free spins with stacked Wilds.
The standard symbols bring wins forming combinations of several same icons at the active lines. The symbols have to be situated next to each other and these chains have to begin from the first left reel necessarily. As usually, only the most valuable combination at each of the lines is paid.
An amount of the win is calculated by multiplying the bet per line by the special index provided by the table for each of the possible combinations (from x5 to x1000). In case of several combinations formed at different lines by results of the same spin, all payoffs are summarized.
By the end of the round, you can take part in the gambling feature. Five cards appear at the screen in this round. One of them is laying face up. The aim is to pick a card higher than the open one among four face-down. If you manage to do it, your payoff is doubled up, if not - all money go to the casino. Both parties keep their positions in case of tie game. It is possible to play several times running.
