What we recommend instead
Viking Slots Verdict
Viking Slots has a very strong theme and lovers of Vikings will certainly appreciate the artwork here. The site is not perfect, due to a slightly clunky software lobby, but there is a good set of slot games and instants. Though there are not many default promotions here, it’s worth keeping an eye out for developments, especially on the Viking Slots social media pages.
Design & Usability
Take an umbrella and a broad axe to Viking Slots, as this site really embraces the theme. You’ll see a very nice piece of original art for the background, showing a longship in a stormy sea, with a Viking warrior looking on. The site isn’t all serious, however- check out the Valkyrie manning the support area with her big grin! Everything from the site fonts to backgrounds for the panels reinforces this strong theme- there’s even a link in the About area telling you about gambling in the Viking world.
The site itself is pretty easy to use, though it’s a little squashed in. You have your usual top navigation area, with account settings, language and site areas. You won’t have to search around for anything, plus most areas have some sidebar links too. This site has a full set of current social media accounts and help is never far away. The downside here is that you occasionally get shunted into a software lobby, which really just gets in the way.
Software & Gameplay
The slots are listed on site with a simple category tree, showing slots, casino and other categories, with number of lines and game types as sub-options. You can also read more about each game before choosing it. However, this is something of a pre-lobby. There’s also a software lobby with more search options and various quick links. This works fine, but so does the main site, really.
The slots appear in a nice, large window and load very quickly. You have the usual site background, but faded down a little to avoid being distracting. There are some quick controls for cashier, help and so on, but no resizing option.
Safety & Security
The site is licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. The games are tested for fairness by the iTech Labs. These raiders are actually very well behaved!
There’s a good responsible gaming area on the site, with controls to help you limit your spending. Your data is protected by SSL encryption provided by the trusted GoDaddy brand.
Payments & Withdrawals
There is a deposit section built into the software lobby at Viking Slots, with methods on the left and the form in the middle. Everything is nice and big, so it’s easy to complete in a few moments. Withdrawal times appear to be around the standard 3-5 working days for cards, faster for e-wallets.
This site accepts Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, or you can use Neteller, Skrill and PaySafeCard, which is more or less the standard setup.
There’s a link to the support area on the sidebar of the main page, where you can see all contacts available. Viking Slots offers phone, email, live chat and even fax. There are some simple FAQs here too, with a larger section for detailed answers.
Support is open 24/7 and the team seem to be very welcoming and knowledgeable. The setup works well.
Bonuses & Promotions
Viking Slots has a nice welcome bonus to get you hopping onto the longboat. Firstly, you get 20 free spins just for registering. You can claim a 100% deposit match up to £200 on your first deposit, then if you deposit the next day you get 40 more free spins. Deposit again two days after to get another 40. Nice rewards, but a little deposit heavy in a short space of time! The deposit bonuses come with a 35x wagering requirement.
Unfortunately, the site doesn’t offer much more in terms of site promotions. You have a nice little Facebook promotion where you can get £10 free for uploading a shot of your winnings and competitions do appear, but semi-regularly.
Visit the mobile section on site to learn more about what Viking Slots offers. There’s plenty of useful information here. Though the site does not have apps, most devices will be able to access the mobile version of the main site.
The game catalogue is limited to 53 games on mobile, but you also have some mobile-only exclusives, such as Bloodsuckers and Piggy Riches. The setup is a little unusual but it works fine; the site itself is easy to use and should provide a little extra fun when you’re away from the PC or laptop.
Variety & Originality
Viking Slots packs a fair mix of slot providers, including Play ‘N Go, Micgrogaming, NetEnt and Amaya among others. Watch out for Fruity Friends, Game of Thrones, Reel Bandits and Spin Sorceress. There are over 15 jackpot games for those big prizes.
This site could use a few more table games, as you just have a handful of roulette, poker and blackjack titles. There are no live dealer games here. However, Viking Slots does have an unusually large scratchcard section that may appeal to fans of instant games.
Loyalty & Rewards
You can earn loyalty points on this site and redeem them for credit later. Viking Slots also has a seven tier VIP programme, though you’ll move to the second level almost immediately. This gives you a welcome package, better reward point redemption rate, free games on Sundays and exclusive VIP tournaments.
Higher levels get more free games and special offers, plus a personal account manager, monthly cashback and more. The top two tiers are invite-only. The rewards are nice, but not quite high roller luxury.
