Many casino slots like to journey through the ancient world. The Egyptians, the Greeks and the Romans are all popular, and as we can see from the Thirsty Vikings slot (made by Synot), the Norse warriors of Scandinavia also have their place.

Much of the imagery in this 5-reel slot is associated with drinking or fighting, and that theme continues into the free spins with their sticky wilds.

Theme and Graphics

Vikings have a reputation. They’re big and bearded and spend their time at war or in drinking halls. That’s what we see in the movies, and that’s what we see in slots. Whether it’s slightly exaggerated compared to the historical reality is another matter.

When you look at the setting of Thirsty Vikings, it’s no wonder they turned to violence and alcohol. The reels are set against towering, craggy mountains and under a discoloured sky. It’s a pretty inhospitable setting, so its residents have to be tough.

The theme becomes even more explicit on the reels. It starts with the actual Vikings: the axe-wielding, bearded warrior man, and the Viking ladies, each with a different colour scheme. The characters are portrayed as quite "sexy" - some may appreciate this aspect, while others will roll their eyes.

It’s not all about the characters, however. The symbols include tankards and barrels of mead, a horned helmet, a drinking horn, a shield and a whole roast pig.

If you want to eat, drink and make merry before or after the battle, you have everything you need. Plus, these symbols have mystical auras with little hazes of atmospheric colour.

How to Play Thirsty Vikings

Grab a tankard, pour yourself some mead and take a swig! Here’s how to get started playing:

  1. There are only so many ways slots can lay out their controls. Menu, bet adjustor, spin and volume are all there if you look.
  1. The menu includes the paytable and help page, which cover all the details we couldn’t fit in our Thirsty Vikings slot review.
  1. If you want to adjust the volume, clicking on the speaker allows you to choose loud, medium, quiet or mute.
  1. Adjust your bet with the plus and minus symbols or with the max bet button, but keep it in line with your balance and budget.
  1. Press spin to get playing.
  1. Stay in control and stick to your limits.

How to Win at Thirsty Vikings

Just like most slots have similar controls, the majority also use very similar win mechanisms.

To be precise, there are paylines - in the case of Thirsty Vikings, 40 of them - and whenever matching symbols land in combinations of 3 on one of those paylines, they’ll pay.

  • Remember that you need 5 matching symbols for the biggest possible wins.
  • Even then, card symbols aren’t worth as much as themed symbols. The win multiplier for the J and K at the bottom of the paytable maxes out at 2x your bet.
  • It’s the Viking warrior who has the greatest payout potential. His win multiplier for 5 matches increases your stake 10x.
  • Wilds and bonuses don’t pay in their own right, but their special functions may help your game.

Bonuses in slots can help your total win grow, but even when they don’t, they can add excitement to an otherwise straightforward base game. Thirsty Vikings bonus features can occur after every win with the gamble feature, but you need the right symbols to trigger free spins.

Free Spins

Most slots trigger their free spins by making you find a scatter symbol. Thirsty Vikings is a little different because its bonus symbols need to be on consecutive reels.

It takes 5 of them to earn you your first 5 spins, then 5 more spins for every additional bonus symbol.

Sticky Wilds

In addition to bonus symbols, there are sticky bonus symbols. When the free spins bonus starts, they’ll turn into sticky wilds. That means they stay on the reels, acting as substitutes for paying symbols.

More bonus symbols landing on the sticky wild mean it can even substitute for the bonus, potentially retriggering free spins.

Thirsty Vikings Review - Summary

Thirsty Vikings probably doesn’t look too different from other slots with a similar theme.

At first glance, the gamble and free spins features are fairly in keeping with those of other modern games.

However, there are some little tweaks and things that aren’t quite as familiar, like the way the sticky wilds combine with the free spins. It is tricky because you need bonus symbols to be consecutive.
