Paddy Power's Viking Mania is a 5-reel, 20-payline game with a clever concept. Your job is to trigger the bonus round so you can throw things at a hapless Viking. In order to trigger the bonus round, you have to play long enough to get a Viking hammer on each reel, but not all at the same time. When you get a Viking hammer for the first time on a reel, you get a little cartoon video of a Viking picking up the hammer and busting open a rock. The rock turns into one of the letters from "BONUS" and falls to the bottom of the screen.
For example, if you get a hammer on the third reel, you get "N" in bonus. Once you get the "N", the hammer on the third wheel doesn't trigger anymore.
One you get all five letters in "BONUS," the bonus round begins, and you start throwing things at the Viking strapped to a target. You get 10 throws, and the closer your throws are to center of the target, the bigger your multiplier is.
Be warned, it take some work -- and wagering -- to get to the bonus round. But once you do, there's plenty of fun to be had.
