Brave Viking is a 5 reel slots game that is 3 symbols high. The game uses standard paylines, with 9 in total, playing from left to right.
Wild – The Wild symbol is the “Viking”, which will substitute for all symbols other than Scatters and Bonus. Wild symbols will also double all wins that they help to form and they are also the game’s most valuable symbol, with 5 Wilds as part of a winning payline earning you 6000 coins.
Scatters/Free Spins – The “Viking Rune” symbol is the game’s Free Spins symbol, with 3 or more of them anywhere on the reels triggering the feature. 3 will earn you 5 free spins, 4 will earn you 15 free spins and 5 “Viking Rune” symbols will earn you 50 free spins.
Bonus – The “Viking Ship” is the game’s bonus symbol. Revealing 2 “Viking Ship” symbols on a single spin will trigger the game’s Bonus feature.
Bonus – Once you trigger the Bonus feature, before it begins you need to choose 1 out of 3 shields in order to begin a race between ships. If your ship wins your bet will be multiplied by 100. If your ship comes second your bet will be multiplied by 10 and if you come last your win will be the value of your bet.
Gamble – Any time you win you have the chance to try to double up your earnings. When you do this you have to guess the colour of card that is sitting face down. Guess correctly and you will double your earnings, guess incorrectly and you will lose everything. You can gamble as many times as you want to, but as soon as you lose you have to return to the main game.
