Vikings Go Berzerk is a slot by software developer Yggdrasil that has five reels, four rows, and 25 pay lines. The theme of the slot is, as the title gives away already, Vikings. The setting of the slot is a Viking ship and you will encounter one mermaid on either side, plus four Viking rage meters right below the reels. And these meters will prove important once one of them is filled up completely.
How to play Vikings Go Berzerk?
All settings can get configured very easily on Vikings Go Berzerk as all you need to use can be found at the bottom of the slot. Completely to the left, you will find the number of active pay lines, which is fixed at 25. To the right of that, you can find the coin value, which starts out at 0.10 per pay line, a value which would translate into a total bet of 2.50 per spin. And as said before, you can alter the coin value. Minimally, you can play with 0.01, and maximally with 5. In the latter situation, your total bet would amount to 125 euros per spin.
Free spins on Vikings Go Berzerk
In order to unlock free spins, you will need the mermaids to land your reels. Three times this symbol leads to 7 free spins and a bonus, which can be two extra free spins or a multiplier. Four scatters lead to 14 free spins plus the bonus, and five scatters lead to 21 free spins and the bonus. Whilst spinning for free, all Vikings that land your reels will fight a mermaid. If the Viking wins the battle, the Viking will stay put on the reels as a sticky wild for the remainder of free spins.
Other features on Vikings Go Berzerk
Something that immediately stands out is the rage meters you find on the ship. Each time one of the Vikings lands on an active pay line, the rage meter increases. And once one of the meters is full, you will receive seven free spins in Berzerk mode.
More specifically, during these free spins, the Viking whose meter filled up completely will be going berzerk and therefore always defeat the sea creatures, thus also always turn into a sticky wild. So, that means that you will be playing with many sticky wilds during the free spins feature. And, ideally, you would enter free spins with multiple Vikings going berzerk at the same time. When you open the slot, you might notice that one of the Vikings has already a slightly filled up meter – this starts you on your way to big wins.
Besides this rage feature, the game also has treasure chests that lead to instant prizes. These chests can show up on your reels both during the base game and free spins feature, but only will they lead to multiple prizes during free spins. These chests could lead to a coin win but can, during the base game, also lead to 7 to 21 free spins. During free spins, they lead to a coin win or additional free spins. Also, during free spins, you can win an entirely wild reel, one extra wild, or two extra wilds. Do note that there are two different types of treasure chests and that the golden one leads to larger prizes than the ordinary chests.
Vikings Go Berzerk might resemble Vikings Go Wild, but it still very much is a unique game with a unique vibe.
