Viking Clash is a fun cartoonish slot game by Push Gaming that features two reel sets with a total of 50 paylines. There's a very rewarding free spins game which doesn't get triggered often but offers extra Wilds and multipliers. The game was released in August 2018.
There are two 5x3 reel sets, one above another, subtly shaded red (top) and green (bottom). Each reel set pays individually and has 25 paylines, for a total of 50, and the player can only choose his total bet size which can be between €0.25 and €100.00.
The way to trigger the free spins game is interesting, as the symbols from top and bottom reel sets can be combined. It is only necessary to land three Scatters, and they can be either Red Catapult or Green Cannon Scatters, or any mix of the two. When the free spins game is triggered, for each Red Catapult a Wild Shield symbol will be launched to the bottom reel, and for each Green Cannon a Wild Shield is launched to the top reel. If a Wild Shield is launched to an existing Wild Shield, a multiplier will be added to the existing symbol.
There are six Viking characters in the game and all pay generously, Hammer and Axe are the medium-paying symbols, and three Runes are worthless. Most of the time, wins in the base game will not be significant and will only cover the bet. It's the bonus features that can award a bigger win.
Apart from the free spins game, there's one more bonus feature and it's totally random. After any spin, a wave may cover the reels, leaving behind some Wild Ship symbols which will then travel across the board to generate some more wins.
Theoretical return to player (RTP) is 96.67%, indicating a quality game, and there's nothing not to like about Viking Clash. It's a game that pays well although wins are very rare, especially the big ones. This is a high variance game, but any player could be fooled into thinking he's playing a casual slot game because of the theme. That's not the case.
Right from the start it's obvious this game has high production value, and graphics are well drawn in high resolution, making the game very enjoyable to play. A large portion of the screen has nothing important on it as two reel sets had to fit somehow, and the symbols on them are a bit small. But it all combines into a theme that's good enough and that gives this game flavour.
There are a few dozen casinos that host Push Gaming slots, and some of the best-known brands are SlotsMillion, Videoslots, Unibet Casino, Slotty Vegas Casino and LadyLucks Casino. It's worth tracking down a casino that has Push Gaming slots as all are of high quality, and Viking Clash is a good slot game and is worth trying out.
