Vikings Go Berzerk is the sequel to Yggdrasil Gaming’s Vikings Go Wild. Any players who had a whale of a time with that original slot machine game will feel quite at home with this second title in the series since many of the original features are carried over into this game.
Vikings Go Berzerk is a powerful successor slot and one which improves on the graphics and gameplay of its predecessor.
Look and feel
Nothing much has changed since the original release. Vikings Go Berzerk still offers a host of special features, although its gaming structure has been expanded and improved. Yggdrasil knows what worked with the original Vikings Go Wild game, and they are sticking to their guns with this one.
Graphically, Vikings Go Berzerk is a step up, with top quality 3D graphics and animations spread throughout the reels and features. Four Viking characters lead the way as high paying symbols in this slot, followed by four different metallic coins which offer the lower paying prizes.
Vikings Go Berzerk is played over 5 reels, upon which sit a total of 25 lines. Four symbols are present on each reel, giving players ample chances to win big. Paylines are non-adjustable, but players are at liberty to adjust their coin values from 1p up to £5. Wagers stretch from a base minimum of 25p a spin, up to a capped maximum stake of £125 per spin.
In the base game, it is possible to win up to 10,000 coins with the Golden Treasure Chest bonus prize, and that also corresponds to the slot’s non-progressive jackpot.
There is a lot to get through in terms of special features. Vikings Go Berzerk is brimming over with them, and they can be a little overwhelming. There is certainly no shortage of them, and players will get the hang of them in time.
There is a treasure chest symbol which can appear on the fourth reel.
When it does, it can offer instant cash prizes, or trigger a free spins bonus round. Either 7, 14 or 21 free games are handed out to the player with this feature. The free games feature can also be triggered by landing scatters 3 or more times on the reels. Should the golden treasure chest appear on the fifth reel, players will pocket a larger instant cash prize, the free spins bonus, a Rage Boost, or the Ragnarök free games feature.
During the standard free games feature, players will also pocket either a wild, a wild reel, 5 treasure chests, 5 golden treasure chests, or 3 additional free games. Chests offer up additional prizes. During the feature, players can also do battle with a siren, and if they overcome her, those Vikings will become sticky wilds.
In the base game, Viking’s Rage Meter can become filled with wins which feature Viking symbols. When a Rage Meter is filled, a Rage Bonus is offered. This Rage Bonus guarantees that one particular Viking will also be able to defeat the siren and remain wild in the bonus game.
The final feature is the Ragnarök free games bonus. In this bonus, all Vikings will go berserk and become wilds. It can only be triggered via the golden treasure chests, or as a random present prior to the start of the standard free spins bonus.
