Play’n GO tend to produce very exciting, innovative, and enjoyable arcade style games, and Viking Runecraft is certainly no exception. Viking Runecraft is a welcome break away from regular 5-reel video slots, instead, the game features a 7×7 grid with a cluster pays system.
The game has many inventive features, such as cascading reels, which means you can win multiple times on each spin! The game is multi-leveled and filled with superb bonus features and huge wins. The game has a Norse mythology/Viking theme and the Gods/Goddesses: Thor, Odin, Freya or Heimdall are the game’s mascots.
As is the case with pretty much all video slots, you have to select your bets before you start to play.
The higher value symbols are all based on Norse mythology. The highest paying is Thor’s hammer, which rewards you with 1500 coins if you land 15 in a single cluster.
♦ Wild: Norse Gods/Goddesses

Viking Runecraft is not a progressive jackpot slot but that doesn’t mean there aren’t big prizes up for grabs. You can win huge amounts in the base game alone, and the special features are especially generous. The game has a medium volatility and the RTP currently stands at 96.70%.
Viking Runecraft is packed with exciting bonus features, all of which feature a different Viking God or Goddess. Behind the reels is a meter which is charged with every winning spin. When the meter is fully charged, it activates one of the 4 ‘Destruction’ modes:
Viking Runecraft features 4 different Norse Gods; Thor, Odin, Freya, and Heimdall, and each God provides a different bonus. To activate these bonuses the pattern of each god must first be cleared. To clear a pattern you need to form wins along a specified grid positions. Each time a pattern is cleared you’ll advance to the next level and you’ll meet another Norse god, until you eventually reach the ‘Level of the Gods’. If you don’t win anything for several rounds, one of the Gods will randomly appear and grant you one of the following:
When a pattern is cleared you will also get to play the Runes of Valhalla bonus mini- game. This bonus game contains a Wheel of Fortune which awards different cash prizes. The cash prize that you win can be increased during the gameplay if you complete winning combos which contain each of the five coloured runes.
The graphic display is fantastic, the reels are adorned with fearsome Viking Gods and warriors, and the animations and cascading reels are a great extra. The soundtrack is great and it really helps develop the Norse theme.
Viking Runecraft is a brilliant new slot. The levels and many bonus features means that something is always happening on the reels and the Norse mythology theme and an element of thrill and excitement. This slot is perfect for all slots fans who like dynamic, action-packed video slots.
