WILD VIKING Overview

WILD VIKING Overview
  WILD VIKING is an online casino game where your winnings are determined by the five cards drawn by the Dealer. The cards are drawn from a shuffled deck containing 52 cards and two Jokers.   The game features four different bettings types:   Roulette-type bets Poker bets Progressive bets WILD VIKING bet   Place multiple bets and increase your winning chances.   WILD VIKINGS Table Layout and Parts   To start playing WILD VIKING, you need to know what the different betting options are and to which betting area they belong. The game table is divided into three Betting Areas:   Center Betting Area Bottom Betting Area Top Betting Area     Center Betting Area   The center betting area includes various Roulette-type bets. Comparing WILD VIKING to Roulette, the value and suit of the 5th card drawn in WILD VIKING is the equivalent of the outcome number in Roulette.   All the 52-card betting options are vertically arranged by suit, and horizontally arranged by rank, starting with the Ace cards on the left on the table, up to the Kings on the right.   Just below the bottommost row of cards there is a line of non-suit specific card ranks. Bets placed here are equivalent to betting on all four cards of similar rank and different suits.   You can use the Center Betting Area to place split bets and various other adjoining bets, by placing the chips on the lines and corners between two or more betting areas. You may place multiple bets on multiple areas and thus increase your winning chances.   Bottom Betting Area   The Bottom Betting Area, just above your chips, includes more Roulette-type bets and the special WILD VIKING bet. The outcome for all Roulette-type bets is determined by the 5th card drawn by the Dealer.The outcome for the unique WILD VIKING bet is determined by the value of both the 1st and 5th card drawn   The Roulette-type bets in the Bottom Betting Area are all group bets, equivalent to betting on a group of cards. For example, the Odd/Even bet and the Black/Red bet.   An exception are the two Single Card bets, which are similar to betting on a single card, as in the Center Betting Area. These are the Joker bets. There are two types of Joker cards: The Red and the Green Joker. If the fifth card drawn by the Dealer is the Joker that you bet on, you win.   The special WILD VIKING bet similarly uses the Joker to get you a win. But it takes more than just the 5th card to win. Making a WILD VIKING bet means you’re betting that both the 1st and 5th drawn cards are Jokers. The WILD VIKING bet has the highest payout of 1250 to 1.   Top Betting Area   The Top betting Area is where you place your bets on Poker hands and the Progressive Jackpot. Unlike the Roulette-type Bets where the 5th card determines your win, it takes the entire 5-card hand to determine the outcomes for the Poker Bets and the Progressive Jackpot bets.   The Poker hands you may bet on are: Four of a kind or better, Full House or better, Flush or better, Straight or better, Three of a kind or better, Two Pairs or better, and a Pair of Sixes or better. You will win your bet when the five drawn cards will comprise the Poker hand that you placed a bet on, or a better Poker hand.   But betting on poker hands is not the last of WILD VIKING’s big prize bonanzas….Think you’re ready for the JACKPOT?   The Progressive Jackpot and how it works: To bet on the Progressive jackpot, click on the icon near the top left corner of the table that’s shaped like a chip slot with a blinking red light. Once the bet is placed, the light will become green.   The Progressive jackpot is a fixed $1 bet. A predetermined percentage of each $1 bet will go to the Progressive Jackpot prize pool, thus constantly increasing the Jackpot prize!   To win the Progressive bet, the 5-card poker hand comprised by the 5 drawn cards must be a Poker hand of 3 of a kind, or a better Poker hand. The better the Poker hand, the higher the prize.   if the 5-cards Poker hand drawn is a WILD VIKING Royal Flush, Then you win the Progressice jackpot. A WILD VIKING Royal Flush consists of the following: The 1st and 5th cards should be Jokers, while the 2nd, 3rd and 4th cards may be any three of the 10s, Jacks, Queens, Kinds or Aces, all of the same suit. Get these cards right and you’ve got a WILD VIKING Royal Flush – and the Progressice jackpot Prize!   WILD VIKING Table Buttons and Features   Please click here to take our multi-language video tutorial that explains the above article plus the Table Buttons and Features.    Release Date: 26 November 2008
