Traditionally, game developers are in charge of designing and making the games, and casinos are established to provide these games to the general public. Both organisations are independent of each other; and that's where we think one of the biggest problems lie. As a result of this system, all the game developers are detached from its customers and gamers that actually play the games. More often than not, these developers wouldn't be able to receive feedback on their games and improve them.
It's about time that a casino did something about this situation, and we are glad that it is mFortune. A casino-come-software-developer, mFortune has put customer satisfaction as their priority and have made a spectacular slot called the Viking Storm.

For a casino operator, we are extremely amazed how mFortune has made such an exciting game. Just like games from other gaming giants such as Microgaming and NetEnt, mFortune has packed their slots with thrilling features. So, here are the lists of features that Viking Storm slot has:
Rainbow Road Mini Game –
When this feature is triggered, you will be redirected to a separate screen. Essentially, this mini game is pretty similar to snake and ladder, despite the fact that each spot that you land on have multipliers for your winnings and you wouldn't have to throw a dice. To us, this mini-game was the most exciting as you could multiply your winnings up to 100x its your initial wager. The image below is a brief example of what you can expect.
Wheel of Wealth –
This feature is a little harder to trigger, but if you do get it, you are in for a HUGE payout. You will get to spin a wheel that multiplies your winnings by 20x, 30x, 40x or 70x.
Finally, there is also a progressive jackpot and loads of free spins to be won in this game. The jackpot was launched at £2,000 when the game was launched, but we did expect it to rise to around £25,000 in no time.

The Viking theme that this game exhibits is very creative and the effects of this vibrant theme is further enhanced by its high-definition graphics. mFortune has thought of every minute detail in this game which makes the game very habitable.
From a couple of hours playing this game, we did not encounter a single glitch or lag on any of our mobile devices. The animations in this game is also spot on. All the transitions to the mini-games when they are triggered cannot be smoother than what you will find in Viking Storm.
As we already know, mFortune has been around since beginning of the mobile slots boom. With all these experience in the gaming industry, we are sure that they have all the knowledge and the capabilities of managing a great casino and making the best slot games in the world. With mFortune developing more games, we think that they might have just started a new breed of casinos; the hybrids.
There are many advantages to being a hybrid casino, both for us gamers and the casino itself. For starters, mFortune develops the game themselves, the save lots of money from not having to buy it from other developers. With those savings, they are able to give us loads of freebies, which we all absolutely love. At mFortune, you will receive a free £5 welcome bonus, no questions asked, and you will get to keep whatever you win. If that wasn't enough, you will also receive a massive 100% first deposit bonus when you decide to stay.
Another bright side to these hybrid casinos are that these casinos are way more connected to us, the gamers. They directly deal with us on a daily basis when we play in their casinos and from that they will be able to understand what we like and dislike. Based on that information, they would then be able to produce the perfect game for us, unlike other independent game developers.
In Viking Storm, the theme of the game matches the theme of the casino like no other. You would instantly be able to tell that both the casino and the game was designed by the same people. Everything seems to be perfectly in place, and that just makes the gaming experience way better for us.
With a more intimate understanding of their customers, mFortune has taken the opportunity to develop a great game that aligns with its company philosophy. Loaded with tonnes of freebies and exhilarating features, we are positive that your stay at mFortune's Viking Storm will be a pleasure.
