Yggdrasil’s Vikings Go Berzerk promises to cause ‘reel’ carnage
Branded as having an even more raw and destructive theme than its prequel ‘Vikings Go Wild’, ‘Vikings go Berserk’ features Viking warriors even more ferocious and ruthless than they were last time around. The clue is in the name. Going berserk is a few notches more out of control than just going wild.
What does that mean for you? Even more, chances to turn those symbols wild in free spins mode and loot the slot for riches, just like the Vikings themselves did all those centuries ago. Here’s what I can tell you about this upcoming release from my friends at Yggdrasil.
Play Vikings go Berzerk for Free
Yggdrasil’s video slot ‘Vikings go Berzerk’ is close to home…
It should perhaps come as no surprise that game providers Yggdrasil are masters at producing Viking-related online slots such as ‘Vikings go Berzerk’. They are after all a Swedish company, which was where many Vikings were originally from! Of course, it wasn’t called Sweden back then but that’s just splitting hairs.
I haven’t had a chance to play it yet so a lot of what I’m about to tell you comes straight from our insiders at Yggdrasil. So my first question was: can I play it on mobile? The answer was ‘yes’: it’s available on desktop, mobile and other devices, as is the case with all G2G free slots.
Vikings come in all shapes and sizes
Our insider at Yggdrasil assures me that the base game is practically identical to ‘Vikings go Wild’. In other words, this isn’t just a sequel building on the original theme as much as it’s very, very similar but just potentially a fair bit better, as I will discuss further on.
First things first, it’s a 5×3 reel slot with 25 pay lines.
Going by its ‘prequel’, my guess is that the game music is a bit similar to what you’d expect to appear just before a big car chase in a movie, creating suspense – a lot like our movies these days.
There was a cool variety of Viking symbols in its predecessor, so I am guessing it will be more of the same here. And remember that Vikings come in all shapes and sizes, including a young Viking girl.
Four further important symbols to talk about. The Wild (no explanation needed), the treasure chest (fourth reel only, I will come to it later), the Ragnarok treasure chest (fifth reel only) and the free spins symbol.
Regarding the volatility, you can expect the same volatility, if not even higher in Vikings Go berzerk compared to Vikings Go Wild. If you love Yggdrasil but want to play something less volatile you have the medium volatile slot game Beauty and the Beast or the low volatile slot game Sunny Shores.
The Vikings go Berzerk Ragnarok free spins feature is the stuff of legend
Other than decent wins in the base game secured with the help of Wilds, this video slot is all about the free spins.
How to get Free Spins
Two ways. Three or more free spins activates the bonus or you can get there via the treasure chest on reel four. When you get the treasure chest symbol it will activate a sort of ‘wheel of fortune’ where you’ll get a coin win prize or will activate the free spins.
Before spinning the spins
A random bonus is awarded to you just for activating the free spins: either a starting wild or a full starting wild reel.
It’s also possible for the random bonus to be that you activate the Ragnarok free spins (see below).
Types of free spins
- Free Spins
So if you’ve played ‘Vikings go Wild’, you’ll remember that after every free spin a Viking symbol went into battle against a sea monster. If the Viking won, it stayed on the reels as a Sticky Wild until the end of the free spins. Replace the sea monster for a siren this time and the concept is the same.
- Berserk Free Spins
What if I told you that on some occasions the Viking always wins when it battles the siren and therefore always becomes a Sticky Wild? That happens when the Viking is in Berserk mode and you can get him in that mode by activating Berserk via a treasure chest in free spins or by completing a Rage Meter.
What’s a Rage Meter? Every win you secure in the base game increases the Rage Meter. When you fill it, you get a free spin with that Viking in Berzerk mode. Here at G2G, I don’t recommend upsetting a Viking when he is in Berserk mode. That’s for your own safety, folks.
- Ragnarok Free Spins
This video slot doesn’t have a Jackpot as such but this is the closest you’ll get to one. The Ragnarok Free Spins can be won as a bonus from ‘before spinning the spins’ or from the Super Treasure Chest. I’ve mentioned that one already. Also known as the Ragnarok Treasure Chest, it’s on reel five and is like the regular treasure chest but has better coin wins, more chances of giving you free spins and is the only one of the two treasure chests that can activate the Ragnarok Free Spins. When you get those legendary free spins, all Vikings are berserk, meaning all Vikings will always turn into sticky wilds when they appear.
Time to enter Ragnarok
It’s pretty obvious that this is an improved version of the very impressive ‘Vikings go Wild’ with more features to look forward to. It’s also obvious the three types of free spins are what make this game and I just can’t wait to secure those Ragnarok Free Spins!
