Viking Forge Slot

Viking Forge

A fiery world of Viking might and iron met me when I played Viking Forge Slot by Pragmatic Play. Set against a glowing backdrop of molten rock, the game’s 5-row high reels are encased in a carved stone frame with gold accents. Items like hammers, daggers, and tankards of ale appear as symbols, while unique coin icons boost your winnings. The top possible win of $1 million from a single spin got my pulse racing, with the graphics and sound effects also adding their share of excitement. This title shares some DNA with Gates of Olympus, released in June 2023.

RTP and Variance

This is a high-volatility game, so you can expect larger payouts less often. The 96.05% RTP is slightly above the industry average, meaning your bets should theoretically give you a fair return.

How to Play

How to Play This game’s controls are easy to pick up. The spin and Autoplay buttons are in the bottom right corner, while the betting controls and paytable, audio, and menu buttons are on the bottom left.

For a winning spin, you must land at least eight matching symbols on the same spin. After a win, the Tumble mechanic will remove the winning symbols from the reels and allow a new set to fall in place. This means you can get several wins from a single spin. If you turn on the Ante Bet option, your bet will be increased by 1.25x, and in exchange, your chances of triggering free spins are doubled.

Bonus Features

Coin Collection

Coin icons with multiplier values of up to 10x can randomly appear over the game’s symbols. If a symbol with a coin attached to it is part of a winning combo, the multiplier will be added to a meter above the reels. Once a winning tumble sequence is over, the combined values of all the collected multipliers will be applied to your win amount. Symbol overlays can produce exciting effects, like the ones in Paws of Fury that launch a jackpot mini-game.

Free Spins

When you land 4, 5, or 6 scatter symbols, you will get 10, 20, or 30 free spins, respectively. Landing six scatters will also pay you 100 of your stake.

During free spins, the coin multiplier does not reset between spins and landing three scatters will reward you with an extra five free spins.

Game Symbols

10 pays x your stake for 12 or more symbols, J pays 4x, Q pays 5x, K pays 6x, and A pays 8x. The beer mug pays 10x your stake for 12 or more symbols, the dagger pays 15x, the hammer pays 20x, and the Viking pays 100x.

Free Play or Demo Play

It’s hard to know exactly how your first time on an online slot will go. Playing a free demo gives you the double benefit of exploring the game at your leisure with free credits while not risking any of your money.


Viking Forge may have a weaker theme-to-gameplay link, but I was still entertained by nail-biting moments and thrilled by the prospect of the top prize. This is a good-looking game with impressive graphics and animations, although no straightforward story exists. The multiplier coins give you plenty of chances to get bigger prizes, and they are instrumental in landing the maximum $1 million prize once you trigger free spins.
