Vikings Go Berzerk is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Yggdrasil Gaming that is playable on desktop, mobile and tablet devices from 25p to £125 per spin. The Vikings are back in this sequel with the original gameplay still intact – however, the Vikings can go berzerk in the sequel.
With an obvious Viking theme, it has similar graphics to the original, Vikings Go Wild, with 4 Viking symbols and 4 Coin symbols. Look out for the Treasure Chest symbol appearing on reel 4 as it will reward you with a coin win (or cash prize) of between 2 and 40 times your stake. It can also trigger the Free Spins feature and give you 7, 14 or 21 free spins.
Furthermore, look out for the Golden Treasure Chest symbol appearing on reel 5 – this gives you higher coin wins of between 10 and 400 times your stake, either 7, 14 or 21 free spins, a Rage Boost (more below) or access to the Ragnarök Free Spin feature.
In terms of the Free Spin feature, this can be played when you get 3 or more free spin symbols anywhere on the reels. You will get 7 free spins for 3 scatters, 14 free spins for 4 and 21 free spins for 5. Look out for wild symbols as these remain sticky throughout the entire feature.
Prior to the feature beginning, a random bonus (known as the Bonus Randomizer) is granted which will give you up to 3 extra free spins, a starting wild, a starting wild reel or 5 treasure chests and 5 Golden treasure chests. These gives you cash prizes, a wild reel or up to 4 additional free spins. Finally, you can get access to the Ragnarök Free Spin feature.
Anyway, back to the Free Spin feature, Vikings try to fight the sea creature – if the Viking manages to do so, it will transform into a wild symbol.
In the base game, there’s a Vikings Rage feature – whenever a Viking symbol is part of a win, the Viking’s rage meter increases. When the rage meter is filled, a Free Spin feature is awarded (by the Treasure Chest or via 3 free spin symbols) with the Viking in Berzerk mode – that Viking will always defeat the sea creature and turn wild. There is also a Welcome Rage feature which fills the rage meter to more than 50% the first time you play the game.
Now, the main attraction is the Ragnarök Free Spin feature where all Vikings are berzerk and will always turn into wild symbols. This feature is played in the Golden Treasure Chest and in the bonus randomizer before the normal Free Spin feature.
There might be a lot going on in Vikings Go Berzerk but it’s quite simple once you get going – you can get good wins in the base game via the Treasure Chest and Golden Treasure Chest but it’s all about the free spins features. Triggering the Free Spin feature with a Viking going Berzerk is key but the real big wins will come in the Ragnarök Free Spin feature where all Vikings are Berzerk. It’s a high variance slot with potential wins of up to 4,000 times your stake. Sequels normally don’t deliver like the originals but Yggdrasil Gaming has outdone itself here – a truly brilliant slot!
