Viking Runes

About the Game

Viking Runes is a video slot with cluster pays. The game includes:

  • 9 regular symbols (3 low pay symbols, 4 med pay symbols, and 2 high pay symbols);
  • A Wild symbol that substitutes all symbols, except Lightning Wild;
  • 4 Lightning Wild symbols.

Cascading Clusters

6 or more identical symbols in a cluster form a winning combination.

Clusters can’t consist of Wilds only.

Multiple clusters can land at the same time, then all clusters award wins.

Winning clusters are removed from the reels and new symbols drop down to fill the empty positions.

Cascades continue until no more winning clusters appear.

Lightning Wilds

Each cascade increases the number of active Lightning Wilds (up to 4).

All Lightning Wilds randomly change their positions with each cascade.

All 4 Lightning Wilds are active during Free Spins.

Runic Shuffle

All symbols randomly change their position to guarantee a winning cluster.

Runic Shuffle can be triggered in the base game and Free Spins.

Runic Shuffle can be triggered if there are no winning clusters and there weren’t any cascades, during this spin.

Spell of Ancestors

Transforms all low symbols into red rune.

Spell of Ancestors can be triggered only once per cascade.

Spell of Ancestors can’t be triggered if there weren’t any cascades in the spin.

Spell of Ancestors can be triggered in the regular game and Free Spins.

Only one feature can be triggered per cascade.

Viking Sorcery

From 3 to 9 Wild symbols are randomly placed onto the field.

These wilds can be placed only on regular symbols.

Viking Sorcery can be triggered only once per cascade.

Viking Sorcery can’t be triggered if there weren’t any cascades in the spin.

Viking Sorcery can be triggered in the regular game and Free Spins.

Only one feature can be triggered per cascade.

Free Spins

The amount of Free Spins is always 6.

Lightning Wilds have multiplicative progressive multipliers, during Free Spins.

Multipliers are increased for each cascade with respective Lightning Wild (maximum +1 per cascade).

Multipliers are saved between the spins.

Free Spins are played at the same bet as the round activating them.

Free Spins can’t be retriggered.
