After the wild success of its slot Vikings Go Wild, Yggdrasil Gaming has returned with the perfect sequel, Vikings Go Berserk. From the moment a player gets a glimpse of the most exquisite intro video, they know they are in for an exciting adventure as they sail the high seas with an assortment of vikings in search of the many prizes that await.
About Vikings Go Berserk
Loyal Yggdrasil fans will immediately recognize the vikings and viking ship that serves as the games backdrop. Once again, the graphics and video features are of such high quality that players will sometimes forget they are playing a game. When they come back to reality and get back into the game, they are sure to encounter a feature-rich slot that gives them plenty of opportunities to win big prizes. Only out since November of 2016, this slot is destined to become a classic.
The Vikings Berserk Game=Play Format
Viking Go Berserk is played with a gaming format that includes 5 reels, 4 rows and only 25 pay lines. The wagering format allows the player to select a coin value of between €.01 and €5.00 for a cash wagering range of €0.25 or as much as €125 per spin. With a maximum jackpot of 100,000 coins, it gives the player a chance at a robust jackpot of €500,000, which is more than suitable for players at all levels.
Symbols and Bonus Features
The standard, low paying symbols are represented by a series of precious coins (ore, bronze, silver and gold) and four fantastic caricatures of menacing looking vikings. The game comes with a bonus symbol (treasure chest), which only appears on reels 4-5 and offers one of five prizes when it hits. The “wild” icon serves as the game’s wild symbol. It is used as a sub symbol for winning combinations involving any of the game’s standard high and low paying symbols. The Damsel serves as the game’s scatter.
From the base game, each of the four vikings has a rage meter. Every time one appears on the reels, the meter increases. When a particular meter is filled, the player gets 7 free spins with that viking in “berserk” wild mode. If the player lands 3, 4 or 5 scatters on the same spin, they are rewarded with 7, 14 or 21 free spins+bonus, respectively. During free spins, the player may encounter Bagnarok free spins where all four vikings are going berserk, sticky wilds, extra treasure chests or expanded wilds, covering an entire reel.
Verdict: Like its prequel, Vikings Go Berserk offers the player much fun and excitement. The free spin mode provides much of the excitement as most any of the aforementioned features may come into play. As if that’s not enough to entice players to play, that €500,000 jackpot opportunity should be enough to seal the deal.
