Flushed with the popularity of the excellent Raging Rhino Slot WMS have released another 6-reeler game with a difference. Instead of the 4096-way format, Viking Vanguard has a mere 60 lines on the same 6-reel 4-row screen.
A slightly darker theme here with a twist - all spins in the base game have a random reel turn wild. There are stacked symbols and stacked wilds on the rest too giving the potential for some large wins. Small wins are more frequent than on our old horned friend the Rhino so the variance is clearly lower here and of course the horns are on the Viking's helmet instead...
You get 8 free spins for the 3 scatters and 100 if you manage 5. Unlike Rhino you can't ever get 6 due to the constant appearance of the wild reel. In the bonus round again 1 reel is wild but one random symbol is stacked in bigger columns (similar in size to the reels found on the Red Flag Fleet and Zeus 3 slots) on the rest of the reels. So yes! it can be the wild and you can get a full-screen of wilds although this won't pay the huge multiples of stake possible on som eo fthe other WMS slots you can play online to be honest.
The Viking Vanguard slot free spins feature can be re-triggered but only with 3 or more scatters, awarding another 8 spins. Overall, like most WMS games, pretty decent and worth giving the runes and ravens a slice of your time if you haven't already and in my opinion!
