Viking Runecraft pretty much explains what it is in the title. We’ve spoken about cultural diversity in online slots before, and this cascading slot is representing the history behind Nordic European countries. Not to mention, let’s not forget that the Vikings even made it as far as Canada, which makes Christopher Colombus look like he was late to the party. Vikings worshiped the Norse gods, almighty in their power and size. It’s no wonder that Play’n GO finally modeled a slot after the godly likes of Thor, Odin, Freya and Heimdall. Who wouldn’t?
The design and graphics of Viking Runecraft perfectly reflect the setting and history we’re dealing with when we speak of Norse mythology. There are 13 symbols in total, and while they have different values, all of them are runes. Wilds are gold runes, high-paying symbols are runes with the weapons of the gods on them, and low-paying runes are old weather-beaten runes. The background of the slot seems to be of a treacherous looking mountain and a Norse god, probably Odin, is standing to the right of the slot screen.
The aesthetic of the symbols complements the rest of the slot’s background. The symbols are an important part of the overall gameplay and design given that the slot is a cascading slot. Thankfully, this game is definitely one of Play’n GO’s more sophisticated in terms of both graphics and gaming so the total effect really works well together.
