Swintt set sail on an all-new Norse adventure in Viking Honour XtraWild™
Software provider’s Viking-themed slot challenges players to sharpen their blades and raid the reels armed with a fleet of Free Spins and epic expanding wilds
Swintt, the award-winning software provider behind action-packed slots Aloha Spirit XtraLock™ and Book of the East, is raising anchor and setting sail on an epic new adventure in Viking Honour XtraWildTM – the latest smash hit in the Swintt Select range.
Featuring five reels and 30 paylines, the brand new slot draws its inspiration from the Norse warriors of old and invites players to heed the battle call as they raid the reels for maximum multipliers of up to 6,261x their stake with the help of an exciting game mechanic that adds fresh wilds on every spin.
Dubbed the “Wild Selector”, this innovative extra will replace a random symbol with a wild at the start of each round, with the chosen symbol then substituting for any regular base game icon to complete winning paylines. Not only that, but once the spin is completed, any wilds that are present will move one space to right and remain locked for the next round, with this continuing until they leave the reels.
If the Norse gods are with them, players will also have the opportunity to trigger 8, 15 or 25 Free Spins by landing three, four or five scatter symbols respectively. Whenever this happens, the “Wild Selector” will retain the symbol that was chosen at the start of the triggering spin, only this time Odin will bestow his blessing on players by transforming it into an expanding wild that stretches to fill the entire column.
During the Free Spins, the expanded wilds will continue to move one reel to the right for the duration of the feature, with this potentially resulting in multiple columns being wild at once to trigger legendary prize combinations. With the help of this feature, it’s far easier for players to completely fill the reels with just one symbol and trigger the slot’s maximum five-of-a-kind win on all 30 paylines.
With these two lucrative additions and an engaging Norse theme that sees the reels decorated with unique symbols including axes, shields, helmets and horns, Viking Honour XtraWildTM promises to be an exciting new addition to the Swintt Select catalogue. Available now at all of the software provider’s partner casinos, Swintt is sure it will prove to be an epic voyage that players won’t forget in a hurry.
David Mann, Chief Commercial Officer at Swintt, said: “With its epic Norse theme and innovative “Wild Selector” feature, we’re proud to unveil Viking Honour XtraWildTM as the latest addition to our exciting collection of Swintt Select slots.
“Boasting a rewarding bonus feature that sees expanding wilds remain on the reels for up to five spins, the slot promises payouts that are sharper than a Viking’s axe and should prove to be a huge hit with any players who are brave enough to heed the battle call and take it for a spin this month.”
