Slot of the Day – Microgaming’s Tiki Vikings sets sail!

Tiki Vikings video slot

Sometimes it can be hard to imagine where some slot themes come from. Sure, you’ve got your popular Egyptian themed slots, the online slot game is based on Norse mythology and so on. But Tiki Vikings seems to have come out of the left field with a mashup theme that looks great!

Microgaming is in charge of distributing this game, made by JustForTheWin in the summer of 2019. These sorts of collaborations help smaller studios get the exposure they need to grow and Tiki Vikings is a JFTW slot, through and through.

Why play Tiki Vikings?

TIki Vikings feels like a daydream that became reality. Someone, possibly on a beach somewhere, thought, “Hey, I wonder what it would be like if Vikings went to Hawaii?”. Of course, this is just speculation from our part but how else would you explain this odd (but oddly great) combination of themes?

Tiki Vikings is built on a 5×3 reel set with 10 paylines. It has a low variance and it is clear that JFTW wanted to focus on making a pretty and relaxed slot game here and not some chaotic, bonus-packed title. For players after the former and for the ones looking to use online slots tips, this is a good place to start.

The visual design is on point, as you would expect from a JFTW slot. This studio has only gotten better over time and it continues to make visually exceptional games.

Tiki Vikings is all about the Vikings, three burly warriors with bright flowers woven into their beards. These guys are also the most valuable symbols and in the absence of Wilds or Free Spins, are as close to ‘features’ as we can get.

Landing three Vikings activates the respin element and the Symbol Upgrade meter then comes into play, slowly building up before converting low value symbols into higher value ones. And that’s really about it for Tiki Vikings in terms of features.

Players who enjoy triggering a multitude of bonus features will no doubt be disappointed with Tiki Vikings. But we found it a fun and relaxed slot to play, perfect for those lazy beach days this summer.
