Tiki Vikings Slots Review: Beauty & Brawn?
Hawaiian style and viking ice - it's a strange combination. But one that works surprisingly well. Tiki totems are dusted with snow - and the three viking characters are adorned with tropical flowers. JFTW went all out in the visuals department.
As for the symbols, we have your usual collection of card suits forming the low pays. For the more lucrative wins, we have the three holiday vikings. And thanks to one of the bonus features, this barbaric bunch can appear more regularly.
As expected of a game with such a colourful theme, the soundtrack is unique. Ukuleles and blaring horns accompany every game spin. And as the features get going, so does the tempo of the music. Speaking of those features...
Tropical trouble awaits in the bonus features
Excited for the Tiki Vikings slots free spins? Well, there isn't a free spins feature to speak of. Instead, you get access to two features that activate when certain conditions are met in the base game.
First, we have the Symbol Lock Re-spin. Land a win with the high-value symbols, and those symbols will be locked into place. You will then be awarded a free re-spin. Land more of the same winning symbols and you will get more re-spins.
If you trigger enough re-spins, then you will unlock the Symbol Upgrade feature. When this feature activates, all locked symbols on the reel will be upgraded to the next most valuable symbol in the game. Symbols that have reached the max level will not be upgraded further.
The lack of free spins may be disappointing to some, but the re-spins feature does promise to activate more frequently. And there's no need to land random scatter symbols.
To keep you busy as you spin, there is also a list of achievements you can land as you play. Hit a Super Mega Win - or trigger the bonus a certain amount of times - then show off to your mates.
Tiki Vikings slots does the impossible and blends two opposing themes. The result is a slot that feels fresh and fun to play. This is set to be the game of the summer and will certainly titillate your tropical senses. Look out for this Microgaming slot when it launches in August.
