VIKS was set up in 2016 by the software company EveryMatrix Software Ltd. It offers an impressive range of casino games, including video slots and video poker, and live casino games including roulette, blackjack, baccarat and "Ultimate Texas" and "Casino" versions of hold'em.
There are various treats for both fresh and veteran players at VIKS.
100% first deposit bonus up to £500
Claim up to 50 free spins on Starburst
Live casino challenges including live dealers
Games starring rock legends Motörhead
Tarzan stars in a 3D slot game with multipliers, free spins and more
Before the bonus money can be withdrawn, there is a minimum wagering requirement of 30, though this can be met simply by playing on slots.
It's easy to be impressed by the live casino offering at VIKS. Many different versions of roulette, blackjack, hold'em and baccarat can be played in this format. Evolution Gaming, one of the Internet's most esteemed purveyors of live casino games, works behind the scenes to provide wonderfully realistic environments and live dealers.

VIKS says that it waits for "official results to be declared" before a payout. One forum user has recalled getting paid within two hours following a pending period.
If you aren't interested in the live casino games previously mentioned, there are plenty of non-live alternatives to choose from at VIKS. There are hundreds of them, in fact - including over 500 slots games. Whether you want to play a traditional favourite like Starburst or a quirky alternative like the summery and Hawaii-themed Aloha! Cluster Pays, you're well catered-for.
VIKS has also picked up some attractive brands for its games, including the legendary rock band Motörhead and that iconic star of the jungle, Tarzan.
While VIKS does not offer a mobile app, its website has been nicely optimised for use on smartphones and tablets. One word of warning, though: the games rely heavily on Adobe Flash, which means that iPhone and iPad users should make sure they have a special browser that can account for this.
VIKS uses a wide range of software providers, including NetEnt, NYX Gaming, Pay'n GO, Microgaming and IGT - with the result that there are sophisticated graphics and soothing colour schemes to go with the smooth and intuitive controls. We are especially impressed by how vividly the dealers are brought to life in the live games.
The VIKS website has a comprehensive FAQ section - and if you have questions that are unanswered there, you can contact VIKS by phone or online form. Their support hours are lengthy, too; 9am to 10pm on weekdays and 11am to 8pm at the weekend.
Although we looked high and low, we couldn't find solid evidence that VIKS offers a VIP programme or loyalty system. It's possible that the casino provides, for loyal players, occasional bonuses at its own discretion - it'd be nice to see VIKS provide more clarity on this.
