Microgaming, a world-wide popular producer of top-quality content teamed up with Just for the Win to roll out another game. The two studios proudly present Tiki Vikings™, where a group of adventurous Vikings brings a taste of Hawaii back to their native Norse homeland.
Prepare for a tropical party full of frost that comes in a 5x3 structure, offering 20 lines for potential winning combinations. The title is available exclusively to Microgaming operators from 7th August.
A Cocktail Made of Palms and Snowflakes
Upon accessing this funny mishmash…
… players are introduced to the bearded band of Viking brothers. Portrayed in quite a creative manner using the palette of vivid colors they take inspiration from their paradise vacation, stuffing the reels with a variety of vibrant décor, including flowers and coconuts.
Besides being visually appealing, the creation is packed with a set of actionable features, to correspond to the dynamic atmosphere. Landing a winning line of any of the top-paying symbols unleashes fine rewards via the Symbol Lock Re-spin feature. Our big colorful heroes remain frozen in place for an extra spin, where landing further high-paying symbols awards further re-spins.
As icons become frozen, the symbol upgrade meter at either side of the reels gradually fills. Achieving three consecutive spins of locked symbols triggers the incredible Symbol Upgrade feature, transforming each locked symbol into the next highest-paying symbol.
The combined potential of the Symbol Lock Re-spin and Symbol Upgrade features can truly get this party started, offering big wins for players aiming for a full reel blackout.
Frosty Hawaiian Party
The previous result of the partnership between two teams resulted in Ruby Casino Queen, a gem-themed video game with glamorous features. Commenting on the Vikings’ silly adventure, Johan Persson CEO at Just For The Win declared as follows:
“Tiki Vikings is a wacky mashup that’s particularly close to our hearts here at Just For The Win. We’ve had a blast putting together a cast of grumpy but loveable Viking characters. They’re all fresh from an awesome tropical vacation, and they’ve brought the relaxed, sun-kissed Tiki vibes back home to the icy Scandinavian tundra. Naturally, our bearded friends’ Hawaiian party keeps freezing in the frosty climate – luckily for players, that means the potential for big wins!”
Where Sun Meets the Ice
Microgaming, which has recently entered a strategic agreement to strengthen its presence in Italy, has quite positive expectations regarding the freshly-baked product. As James Buchanan, Director of Global Operations pointed out:
“Just For The Win have delivered yet another entertaining and highly original slot game. Tiki Vikings merges two popular themes to great effect, providing players with a colorful and fun base game, boosted with excellent bonus mechanics. The Symbol Lock Re-spin and Symbol Upgrade features add a tremendous sense of energy and momentum to the gameplay, offering the potential for huge rewards.”
