Play’n GO, the leading Swedish-based iGaming supplier, has launched Viking Runecraft 100, the sequel to the smashing hits Viking Runecraft: Apocalypse and Viking Runecraft and at the same time another part of the 100 series. In this sequel, players have the opportunity to once again meet 3 powerful gods and plunge into another outstanding adventure with them.
In addition, the provider’s previous similar hits that are part of the 100 series include Moon Princess 100, Rise of Olympus 100 and Honey Rush 100.
This exquisite Norse mythology-themed slot beckons players to re-enter Asgard to help Freya, Heimdall and Thor fight against the dark forces that seek the all-powerful Run Stone. The game take place in the mountains where players may see Northern lights in the distance.
To make a winning combination and of course protect Asgard, players must form a combination of 3 or more matching symbols that are next to each other horizontally or vertically on a dynamic 5×5 grid that offers 3 paylines. In addition, the game has high volatility, an RTP of 96.2% and a maximum win of 15,000x a player’s bet.
In terms of features, there is the Tumble feature, where the aforementioned winning combinations vanish from the grid after they are accumulated, causing new symbols to fall to potentially create new winning combinations. As soon as a winning combination that contains 3 symbols disappear from the grid, the Rune Wild symbol will land in the place of the middle symbol, causing the Win Multiplier to grow at every new fall.
Next, there is the God Power, which may be activated randomly throughout non-winning spins. As soon as it’s triggered, the God shown on the screen executes its characteristic ability to produce a win. These powers are: Magic – adds 1 or 2 Wilds, Vision – removes two sets of symbols and Thunder – modifies one set of symbols. Additionally, a random god is selected at the beginning, and the order goes to Thor, Freya, and Heimdall without change, with the next replacing the previous one as soon as the power is used.
To activate the Ragnarök feature, players have to charge the on-screen meter. The meter may just be filled with wins that hold fixed Wilds or God symbols. However, the meter consists of 3 parts that add the extra excitement to the game and make the adventure even more entertaining for the players.
Free Spins as the cherry on top:
Clearing the grid during Ragnarök triggers the Free Spins and rewards players with x50 of the player’s overall wager. As soon as the Free Spins are triggered, players have to choose which of the 3 powers mentioned above to use. Also, throughout this, the Win Multiplier is transferred from the aforementioned Ragnarök feature and may go up to x100, increasing the winning potential of the game.
Moreover, the aforementioned God Power that players have chosen is activated on each non-winning spin throughout the feature. However, if players completely fill the meter, they may receive extra spins.
Expressing pride for this new release, Magnus Wallentin, Games Ambassador at Play’n GO, commented: “Viking Runecraft is so popular – we had to bring the series back for a second time this year. We’re proud to induct this title into the ‘100 Slot’ series alongside some other great titles. With that x100 max win in the Ragnarök feature is awesome, and we think players will love it. Same with all of the bespoke God powers: giving players unique outcomes based on whether they land Heimdall, Freya or Thor is really immersive.”
