Vikings have had their depictions in popular culture over the years. One depiction is the popular Sunday newspaper comic Hagar the horrible. This comic strip offers a light hearted take on a viking, his family, and various mishaps that occur on his raids. Another depiction is the History Channel series Vikings. This show portrays Ragnar Lothbrok and his family as he goes on raids and becomes a king in his own right. The show is gritty and bloody however it is the History Channel so it doesn't wade into HBO type territory.
The Vikings were one of the most feared groups in history, and for good reason. These Nordic seafarers were known for raiding and pillaging villages, meaning they would go into a village to kill people and make off with valuables like gold for example. There is a slot machine game that caters to this period from history. It is entitled Viking's Victory. This slot machine takes you on an epic voyage with these brutes, so be ready to siphon off some of their looted goods.
