Play’n GO Viking Runecraft Debuts Next Week.
Whether you see it as unwavering faith in the quality of their product or plain old overconfidence, there can be no denying that Play’n GO turned a few heads earlier this month when they announced the impending release of their “next big hit” – Play’n GO Viking Runecraft debuts.
Well, the good news for those intrigued by the self-assuredness of the software company’s words is that they won’t have to wait much longer to see if the new video slot title will live up to the hype, as Viking Runecraft will officially make its online debut at all Play’n GO-supporting mobile casinos on Thursday.
As you’ve probably already guessed from the name, Viking Runecraft sees Play’n GO make their first foray into Norse mythology since Dragon Ship – a game so old that many of our readers probably won’t even be aware of it. Nevertheless, it is a theme that they tackle with gusto, and the beautiful symbols in Viking Runecraft and the 3D animations that bring them to life are truly a sight to behold.
Of course, pretty visuals are all well and good, but if the game doesn’t have the substance to back it up, it’s still a bit of a waste of time. Fortunately, Viking Runecraft looks as though it will deliver on that front as well thanks to its huge 7×7 grid and anyway pays betting engine – both features that Play’no GO fans will have already experienced in the company’s hugely successful Gemix video slot.
Just as in that game, in Viking Runecraft every winning combination players land will explode and leave vacant spaces on the reels, with new symbols then tumbling down to fill them. Consecutive wins that are created in this manner will then fill a charge metre, with bigger and better bonus features being triggered depending on the charge level that players have collected during their spin.
What’s more, the game also offers players a decent amount of longevity given that they will be able to explore four differently-themed worlds as they continue to spin. With that in mind, Play’n GO Viking Runecraft looks to be a more grown-up version of Gemix that improves on the popular game in virtually every respect – for that reason, we’re not surprised Play’n GO are already calling it a hit!
