Have you ever wanted to get close to brave warriors of the past who had to fight enemies to carve out territory for their family, kin and clan? Vikings: Frozen Gods is an epic journey into gloomy and cold Scandinavian lands, and we’ll explore them in amazing slot machine game from AGames.

This is a 5х3 slot with 25 lines where coin value varies from 0.01 up to 10.0. The highest payout belongs to the symbols of four hero Vikings followed by images of swords, axes and magic Scandinavian runes.

Frozen Gods Meter

One of the main peculiarities of the slot is a Frozen Gods Meter. There are four gods which require three prey points to fill up their indicators. One prey point is added to the Gods Meter at the end of every non-winning spin. As soon as you make three spins in a row with no win, the indicator of the lower God will be filled up and give you an x2 multiplier bonus. Giving prey to an upper God becomes available only when a lower God’s indicator is totally completed.

There are also x3, x5, and x10 Gods Meter multipliers.

Such a bonus system makes possible to be rewarded even when your bet is’t successful and often allows to earn even more than after a winning spin. The progress on the Meter, however, disappears after you get any winning spin or change your bet.

Loki bonus

What a Norse-related game can be without the most famous mythological trickster Loki. No surprise we meet him here, in “Vikings: Frozen Gods” slot.

Loki symbol is sly but can be really profitable if appear in the right place. It can take a shape of any God on the God Meter and absorb their prey points. When Loki gets three prey points on a single God indicator, Loki Wild symbol immediately reveals itself on the reels.

Loki Wild substitutes for other symbols, except for the Scatter, and also moves randomly on the reels after every spin. The best thing here is that numerous Loki Wilds can appear on the reels simultaneously.

Free Spins

The Scatter symbol is what usually triggers free spin bonuses in video slots, and “Vikings: Frozen Gods” by Agames offers the same rewards.. The Scatter symbol reveals a Goddess who can activate 5, 10, or 15 Free Spins if appear on the reels 3-5 times at once.

As a player, you’ll be happy to know that no God Meter bonuses, neither Loki Wilds are removed from the area during the free spin round. Moreover, a non-winning free spin increases the indicator on the God Meter, while a winning free spin never resets it and lets the score grow up, unlike in the main game.

Such a mechanics makes “Vikings: Frozen Gods” a unique slot game, with numerous chances to get a big win.

Impact of COVID-19 on Virtual Gambling Sector: ConnectPay Calls to Fortify Payment Security as Industry Fraud on Rise
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Online gambling has increased during the pandemic. Evidently, so did the illegal activity related to the industry. Scammers are abusing the vulnerability of the circumstances, which is reflected by the rise in financial fraud and exploitation schemes. ConnectPay, an online banking service provider, encourages businesses, especially the ones considered to be higher-risk, to make the security of payment transactions their top priority in order to build trust with new and existing clients, and protect them from falling victim to fraudulent payments.

Illicit activity concerning monetary transactions has been a long-standing issue for the virtual gaming industry even prior to the pandemic, with financial crime estimated to be at $2.1 trillion per annum. That said, the COVID-19 crisis has brought new challenges as new fraud schemes started to plague various markets. This has influenced some countries, fearing an increase of illicit activity in online gambling, to issue tighter measures for the vendors to protect consumers during the lockdown.

“The increased online gambling sessions correlate with the noticeable jump in payment transactions”, explained Liutauras Varanavičius, Head of Business Development at ConnectPay. “When comparing data from January with the stats from April, we have noticed a 30% increase in gambling-related transactions. Even though it’s hard to predict how prolonged will the aftermath of the pandemic be, the necessity of instating more precautionary measures to support secure payments is too apparent to be left unaddressed.”

The surge of online gambling activity has greatly increased the public’s exposure to digital risks. While others are capitalizing on the crisis, businesses have to face the conundrum on how to disassociate from the perpetrators, remain credible and retain their target audience.

“The spike in fraudulent financial activity could hit the sector even harder than others: it’s already under a magnifying glass due to the nature of acquired revenue, thus any association with financial fraud could be leveraged as a pretext to revoke acquired licenses and restrict business”, said L. Varanavičius.

As the global health crisis continues, the need for reliable security measures and prevention of illicit financial flows will only continue to grow. Implementing timely and adequately prepared safeguards to combat arising threats is paramount, as, until brick-and-mortar casinos are once again operational, gambling industry relies on digital-only vendors.

Preserving secure payment transactions could be the difference between remaining operational or having to close up shop. The pandemic has already hampered AML supervision and presented new threats that could aid criminals in avoiding customer due diligence. However, having acknowledged current obstacles enables businesses to evaluate measures that would help avoid being juxtaposed with illicit activity and choose partnerships accordingly.

To keep the scammers at bay, ConnectPay continuously invests in innovative fraud prevention solutions, latest AML safeguards and other smart tools, helping companies in underserved markets to maintain credibility and keep the associated risks to the bare minimum. Furthermore, the company places high emphasis on a thorough screening process: this prevents taking on clients involved in unethical business practices, limiting the grounds for financial fraud. In 2020, ConnectPay is planning to invest additional 750 thousand euros in Anti Money Laundering and Counter-Financing of Terrorism compliance solutions.
