A trip back in time and far to the north awaits us now as we check this viking-themed online slot from Relax Gaming; it’s called Erik the Red and it’s based on the life and exploits of this famous Norse explorer – find out how it all works below.
Erik the Red is a five reel slot with four rows and twenty fixed paylines; the sails of his longboat are where those reels spin while more boats bob around in the background, dodging the giant icebergs and floating ice.
The higher value symbols include Erik, Helga, a helmet, an axe and a Viking horn; three shields of varying colours represent the lower values.
The wild is a flaming sword which will substitute for all others to help form winning combos except for the knotted silver scatter symbol.
On each spin one of the symbols will be chosen to appear stacked on the reels to give players a bit of help with some bigger wins.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the silver scatter symbols anywhere in view for which you will receive an initial eight free spins. Above each reel is the word ‘Wild’ which will be filled up one letter at a time when a scatter lands on that particular reel (each reel which contained a triggering symbol will start off with two space already filled).
Each filled ‘Wild’ will lock that reel in place for the rest of the spins, make it completely wild and award one additional free spin. Happy Days!
Erik the Red is a very enjoyable slot with some crisp, cartoonish graphics, some dramatic background music and an enhanced free spins round which will be very lucrative for the luckier players. It comes with a nice high RTP of 96.95%.
