Børk The Berzerker Slot Review
There are plenty of slots themed on old Norse legends but we’ve never come across one based on the Berzerkers before. These warriors would stir themselves into a trance like frenzy before taking on and ultimately destroying their enemies. One of their number is the star of Børk The Berzerker, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Scandinavian developer Thunderkick. It comes with expanding wilds and a free spins bonus round. Play from between 10p and £100 per spin.
The reels in Børk The Berzerker are filled with a motley assortment of cartoon-style monsters and sea creatures, a damsel in distress and our hero Bork who acts as the wild. Bork can appear on reels 2, 3 or 4 and when he does feature in a winning combination he will turn into an expanding wild, slicing up his opponents and filling up the entire reel. The expanding wild can appear on multiple reels which makes for some potentially epic payouts.
Børk The Berzerker also comes with a Free Spins feature which is triggered by the purple monster scatter. Find 3 on the reels to trigger 10 free spins. Four will offer 20 with five giving you an impressive 50 free spins. You can trigger up to 50 more free games during the bonus round so keep your fingers crossed for more scatters.
Thunderstruck has a reputation for producing beautifully designed games and Børk The Berzerker fills that brief. The cartoon-style graphics are typically well done, all complemented by a tension inducing soundtrack. They may not quite have the wow factor of the likes of 1429 Uncharted Seas or the innovative layout of Birds on a Wire. They’re just good, solid graphics and animations.
The same could be said about the features – there’s nothing very spectacular on show but what Børk The Berzerker does offer it does very well. This slot is relatively simple by Thunderstruck’s standards. The novel take on the Norse theme is refreshing and the visuals and gameplay are a smooth as you’d expect.
The free spins are the key to winning a longboat full of coins. Find the maximum 50 in combination with the expanding wild and there are chances to win some spectacular rewards. If you like Norse themed slots, Viking Vanguard by WMS is very good but graphically, it reminds me of Odobo’s Akaneiro.
