Set Sails with Fearless Vikings in Latest Yggdrasil Release
Yggdrasil Gaming scheduled the release date of their latest slot called Vikings Go Berzerk for the end of November, and we can say with certainty that plenty of experienced sea-dogs are eager to join the crew of this Viking ship.
The 2016 release is the sequel to the Vikings Go Wild slot, and will take spinners on an epic adventure where they will fight the beautiful but deadly mermaids in order to claim the treasures guarded by these magnificent creatures.
Playable from $0.25 per spin, this five-reel slot with 25 fixed paylines boasts crisp graphics, excellent animations and a matching soundtrack, while gamers will be amazed with the number of additional features and possible prizes.
What We Love
The biggest question in this section is – where to start? There is so much we want to praise in the 2016 release, so we decided to skip the magnificent visuals and a cool soundtrack, because, let’s be honest, Yggdrasil newer failed in this department.
We love our slots packed with action, and there is so much to play for in the Vikings Go Berzerk, starting from the Viking’s Rage, loads of freebies, Sticky Wilds, Ragnarok Free Spins, instant coin prizes, etc.
Free Spins can be triggered in four different ways during the base game, which is simply excellent.
You can either win 7 freebies by filling the Rage Meter of one of the Vikings, or land at least three Mermaid Scatters and get up to 21 Free Spins, depending on the number of Scatters landed, or get up to 21 freebies from the Treasure Chest symbol that lands on reel 4, or the Golden Treasure Chest on reel 5.
Those Treasure Chests also carry other prizes, some more valuable than others, but they do offer plenty both during the base game and the Free Spins Feature.
Once you trigger the Free Spins feature, Yggdrasil prepared an extra Bonus prize for you, so you can win a Wild Reel, additional Free Spins, Extra Wilds, and, our personal favourite – Ragnarok Free Spins.
During the free spins each Viking that appears on the reels will fight a mermaid and if victorious he will turn into a Sticky Wild. With Ragnarok Free Spins, all Vikings go berserk, meaning that they will win every battle with the mermaids, guaranteeing plenty of Sticky Wilds and plenty of insane payouts!
What We Do Not Like
Even though the slot is as perfect as it could be, there are a couple of things that may get on your nerves. First, you will not be able to fill the Rage Meters that easily, so you won’t get plenty of berzerk Vikings during gameplay.
Also, you will have plenty of trouble landing those beautiful Mermaids on the reels, since they are not willing to let go of their treasures so easily.
Fans of Vikings Go Wild will definitely enjoy the sequel, because, in our humble opinion, it brings plenty of innovation. The essence of the original remains intact, but now we have much more opportunities for lucrative payouts and much more action.
The Viking’s Rage is a neat addition to the story, while the Free Spins feature offers plenty of chances for big wins, especially if you get the Ragnarok Free Spins for the Bonus prize.
