With a familiar design and mathematical setup, the Book of Vikings slot produced by Pragmatic Play doesn’t excel on novelty if you are a seasoned player. Even though it has a moderate payout potential (5,500 times the bet max win), the Nordic-inspired video slot tries to compensate with a “loose” hit ratio averaging 1 out of 3.
Book of Vikings Slot Details
Available in a 5-reel, 3-row grid setup with ten active pay lines, the game allows the players to wager from 10 p/c and up to £/$/€ 100 per spin. Compatible with any device, Book of Vikings is a highly volatile slot with a rating scoring 4.5 out of 5. Any winning combination pays from left to right according to the paytable.
An assortment of symbols including 10 to A card royals and Horn, Helmet, Female Viking and Male Viking appear along with the WILD and SCATTER symbols. Additionally, the WILD symbol appears anywhere on the reels and can substitute for anything except the SCATTER.
Pragmatic Play opted for a flexible RTP; therefore, the theoretical return to the player can range between 94.50% and 96.50%, depending on the online casino where the title is available.
Free Spins Feature
Punters with a trained eye will notice straight away how the bonus round plays out as Book of Vikings features special expanding symbols (similar to the “Book of” slot genre). The players must land at least three SCATTER anywhere on the reels to trigger the free spins feature.
Before the ten spin-cycle begins, the game will randomly pick a symbol to become expanding. Each time the expanding logo appears on the reels, it will occupy the entire reel and pay according to its paytable. The expanding symbols do not need to be connected to adjacent reels. Furthermore, the expanding process begins only when enough special symbols appear on the reels (at least two for top-paying symbols and at least three for lower-paying symbols).
The free spins feature can re-trigger without any limit whenever three or more SCATTERS appear on the screen. Should the players wish to skip the waiting and directly trigger the free spins feature, they will need to pay 100 times the bet fee. To conclude, the bonus buy option is not available in certain countries.

Slot Summary & Final Verdict
Although the repetitiveness is present, we still couldn’t tear ourselves away from playing it while testing, because after all, Book of Vikings is an attractive game in terms of graphics and sound effects. However, considering the lack of originality and the ever-modest max win capabilities Pragmatic Play continues to apply on most of their recent releases, a 3 out of 5 rating seems fair enough.
