Slot tester's review: Gail Banavage

Slot tested

Vikings Go Berzerk is the sequel to the popular Vikings Go Wild slot game. You might have come across this slot at some point or another as some UK casinos tend to give away an assortment of free spins on this game in particular as a welcome offer.

What’s unique about this game when compared to its predecessor you might ask? It comes with a range of Treasure Chest symbols which can reward you with hefty cash prizes, free spins and much more.

Built over five reels and 25 paylines and flanked by stunning mermaids on each side of the reels, the set-up has been designed to give you maximum value as you sail the ocean in search of treasures.

Once you go below deck, you’ll learn that the RTP of this game is an average 96.1%. it’s the common standard. However, I would have loved to see a slightly higher RTP for this medium volatile slot game.

Who doesn’t want to trigger a bonus round which can reward you with up to 21 free spins with sticky wilds? I sure do. The game gets you into the spirit of things with combative music in the background that although it makes you feel brave and courageous as you embark on your mission, will quickly become tedious and annoying as the game wears on.

Some players might enjoy it, but I like a little peace and quiet in between spinning the reels.

Since it’s choc-a-block with features, these will be better discussed in the next section. Overall, the game boasts enough features and entertainment factor to have kept me pinned to my seat. Even if the features aren’t enough for some, once you ramp up the rage meter things pick up considerably.

Symbols & Features

In total, there are eight standard symbols, with the higher values reserved for the Vikings themselves while the others are coins of various colours and values.

The wild symbol is represented by a large shield with a massive Wild emblazoned across it. As usual, it will substitute for all other symbols to help create winning combos bar the Free Spins icons.

In terms of features, you can find a detailed description below:

  • Free Spins round: Land between three or five Free Spins scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, and you could earn yourself up to 21 free spins with a randomly assigned feature.

    Features can include sticky wilds in a random position, a sticky wild on a random reel, between 1 and free extra spins, five extra treasure or golden treasures chests added to the reels or all Vikings go Berzerk.

    Throughout this round, all Vikings can become sticky wilds by fighting off this Siren. This is most likely to happen in the Berzerk mode. The fights take place if a Viking lands on the reels. Unfortunately, the Vikings themselves rarely win in this game. However, you can retrigger more spins during this round.

  • Treasure Chests:

    The treasure chests can pop up on the reels without any riff-raff or grand entrances and reward you with a stunning cash prize.

    The Standard Chest on the fourth reel can reward you with a multiplier and up to 1000x your bet. Alternatively, it can trigger free spins.

    On the other hand, the Golden Chest can also reward you with a multiplier and up to a massive 10,000x your bet. It can otherwise provide you with free spins, boost a generous 25% to each rage meter or trigger the Ragnarök free spins.

  • Vikings Rage Just below the reels, you’ll find four meters corresponding to each of the four Vikings. Each time you hit up a winning combo, that character’s rage meter will fill up. Once it’s full, you’ll be awarded seven free spins with that specific Vikings in Berzerk mode. The Vikings Rage meter offers a rather unique touch to an otherwise spectacular game. The chance of landing more free spins and in Berzerk mode can make way for big wins.

Our Verdict

I am still on shaky grounds when it comes to Vikings Go Berzerk. As much as I love the innovative approach Yggdrasil has taken with this game, I found that wins didn’t come by as often as I would have loved them to.

Triggering any of the special features was also close to impossible. Since I was unable to hit as many wins, it took a considerably long time for me to fill up any of the Viking Rage meters, which frustrated me.

If you can live with the fact that this is a high volatile game and you are looking to feast your eyes on a seriously good-looking online slot, this can indeed be an exciting experience. The only way for you to generate any wins is by hitting up the free spins feature with the Vikings Go Berzerk mode.

If, on the other hand, you are looking to boost your bankroll, this might not be the game for you. High rollers will, however, lap this up!
