The latest Cluster Pays slot from TrueLab Games continues to pay out big prizes to the luckiest vikings. On March 29, a slot enthusiast was playing the Viking Runes slot with a bet of $0.8 per spin, and with the help of many in-game features, managed to win a 2,272.6x prize, which makes $17,818.
Thanks to Runic Shuffle and two Viking Sorcery modifiers that popped up on a single spin, the player won $11 and triggered 6 Free Spins.
As the bonus started, Lightning Wilds immediately started accumulating Multipliers by taking part in winning combos. The player made only 7 more dollars on the first spin, though, Wilds increased their Multipliers to 2x, 3x, 4x, and 4x respectively.
Free Spins went pretty unfruitful until the 6th spin, bringing only $138, but the last spin showed what's the slot is capable of. During the last cascade, all 4 Lightning Wilds took part in a single win of $4.48, which paired with their Multipliers turned into an unbelievable $17,418 gain.
In some weird synchronicity, there are only 9 9x9 slots in our 19,000+ slots catalog at the time of writing. That gives you an idea of just how rare a massive grid like what TrueLab has come up with in Viking Runes really is. It’s 81 symbols per spin, which is almost twice of what you get in the somewhat similar 7x7 Play’n Go title, Viking Runecraft.
It’s not only the size that sets the 2 Norse-themed grid slots apart however, as Viking Runes comes with 5 times the potential and simplified gameplay. The visual presentation is more cartoonish, and not quite at the same level, and the base game is all about unlocking Lightning Wilds via consecutive cascading wins. 3 random modifiers can come in handy at times, and the bonus round is all about building massive wild multipliers.
You have 2 wilds that help you form winning clusters in this game. The regular wild steps in for all symbols, except for the Lightning Wilds we’ll take a closer look at below. Winning clusters are removed from the grid via the Cascading Reels feature, and replaced by new winning chances dropping from above. This goes on as long as you keep winning.
The Lightning Wilds are at the core of this game, and there are 4 of them on display in the right-hand side meter. One Lightning Wild will fly off the meter and land in a random position on the grid per winning cascade, starting with the green one at the bottom. The wilds remain in place for the duration of the cascade, but are removed on new paid spins.
You also have 3 randomly triggered modifiers in this game, and they can manifest both in the base game and during free spins. Only 1 will trigger within one cascading sequence however, and they play out as follows:
You need at least 5 cascading wins in a row to trigger the Bonus Round, and this gives you 6 free spins. You’ll benefit from all 4 Lightning Wilds at the same time on each free spin, and they move to new random positions after each cascading win. Every time a Lightning Wild is part of a winning combo, its multiplier will increase by +1 with no upper limit. There are no extra spins or retriggers, so lengthy cascades is your best hope.
With such a massive 9x9 grid, a single wild will many times not make that much of an impact. However, we landed some smaller wins in the base game due to the randomly triggered modifiers. The bonus round starts at 1:34 into the 2-and-half-minute highlights video, but the build-up to it is well worth a peak too.
Finally a developer that does things right when it comes to “copycatting”. Clearly inspired by Play’n Go’s Viking Runecraft, TrueLab has simplified the concept in Viking Runes (even down to the name). At the same time, they have significantly beefed up both the grid and the math model. Visually, it’s not as pleasing perhaps, but that’s hardly a dealbreaker.
The 6-spins bonus round can be a short-lived affair when you don’t hit much. However, when the Lightning Wild multipliers are cranked up to a decent level, and cascades keep piling up, massive payouts up to 25,000x are possible. In fact, more so than in many similar games, as the max win was hit a solid 1 in 664,000 spins during testing.
Viking Runecraft - is a powerful and visually stunning title from Play’n Go, and clearly a source of inspiration for the game at hand. It plays out on a 7x7 grid, and you land winning cascades to trigger 4 Charge of Destruction features via the bonus meter. Payouts up to 5,000x can be landed in the Ragnarök bonus round.
Asgardian Stones - is a NetEnt norse mythology slot, and it plays out on 5 reels with 20 win ways. You will benefit from colossal symbol blocks that can crush their way down the grid, and the bonus round comes with colossal wilds for payouts up to 2,000x your stake.
Vikings Unleashed Megaways - is a Blueprint title about the brave norse warriors, and it comes with up to 117,649 win ways. You’ll benefit from mystery symbols in the base game, and the unlimited multiplier bonus round can lead to payouts up to 10,000x your stake.
