Slot Review: Tiki Vikings from JFTW and MicrogamingPublished December 1, 2019 by Elana K
Tiki Vikings from Just for the Win (JFTW) and Microgaming has one of the most interesting slot themes we’ve seen, along with great visuals and music. You can win up to $75,000 per spin when you play at Microgaming online casinos.
Tiki Vikings from Just for the Win (JFTW) and Microgaming has one of the most interesting slot themes we’ve seen — a combination of Tiki, which comes from the South Pacific region, and Vikings, who hail from across the Atlantic — but the developers make it work. Besides, we’re used to seeing innovation and creativity from JFTW, one of Microgaming's most entertaining partners. You can play Tiki Vikings at Microgaming casinos, online and on mobile.
Tiki Vikings is a 5-reel, 20-payline slot that’s playable across all devices with bets ranging between $.10 and $250. Reel symbols include card suits A, K, Q, and J in Polynesian-style, along with higher-paying Viking symbols, looking quite fierce with flowers in their hair. The Tiki Vikings logo is the highest-paying symbol and will award you 2, 4, or 15x your stake when 3, 4, or 5 land in combination.
Symbol Lock Respin
When a winning combination is formed with one of the higher-value symbols, the Symbol Lock Respin is triggered. During this feature, the triggering symbol(s) get locked into position, and you’ll get a respin. If additional symbols get added to the original combination to form another win, they get locked into place and you get another re-spin. There’s a meter that can be used for symbol upgrades — filling the meter can also trigger this feature; in this case, the locked symbols are upgraded so you get a bigger payout.
Visually, Tiki Vikings is a fun slot, and it’s especially entertaining to see the Vikings with flowers in their hair. But it disappoints in terms of features — there’s pretty much only the respins. It’s also a low-variance slot, which means you shouldn’t expect big payouts — the most you can win is a little more than 300x your stake, a total of $75,000. The slot’s mellow pace and fun visuals make it a great game for beginners and for players who appreciate fun themes.
