Vikings Go Wild is brought to you by Yggdrasil Gaming and is a 5 reel, 25 payline game which can be played from 25p to £50 a spin. It has an obvious Viking theme where Vikings fight a sea monster. Graphically good, the style is cartoon like with an inspiring and grand soundtrack making you feel part of something epic. It’s also available to play on mobile and tablet devices.
There are 9 regular symbols including Vikings and 4 coins. If 3 or more of them are lined up in sequence on payline, you will make a winning combination. The most valuable one is worth 250 times your line bet or 10 times your stake which is a little disappointing.
However, look out for the ship Free Spin symbol as 3 or more will trigger the Free Spins feature – 3 will give you 8 free spins, 4 will give you 16 free spins and 5 will give you 24 free spins. What makes this feature interesting, and rewarding, are the wild and Viking symbols.
Each Viking that lands on the reels has a chance to turn into a sticky wild – the Viking symbols will try to fight off the sea creature when they land. If they succeed, it will become a sticky wild – if not, it remains a Viking symbol.
As for wild symbols, they are sticky until the end of the feature potentially giving you huge wins. On top of this, all wilds from the triggering spin to enter the feature become sticky too!
Look out for the Treasure Chest symbol during both the base game and free spins feature on the 5th and final reel. In the base game it can give you 8 to 12 free spins and up to 40 times your stake whereas in the feature it can give you an extra 2 to 4 free spins and up to 40 times your stake as a cash prize. It can even give you a wild reel!
Vikings Go Wild is a high variance slot and one of Yggdrasil’s best games in my opinion. The bigger wins will almost certainly come in the Free Spins feature with sticky wilds and the possibility of a wild reel. I’ve managed to win over 200 times my stake a couple times now. It reminds me a little of WMS’ Viking Vanguard which has a similar theme and is highly volatile too. If you like the look of Yggdrasil Gaming, Cazino Zeppelin is high recommended.
