Vikings Go Berzerk Slot Review
Vikings Go Berzerk is a five-reel video slot that offers 25 fixed paylnes. This is a sequel of the popular Yggdrasil title, called Vikings Go Wild. In the 2016 release, a crew of Vikings is sailing through the seas packed with beautiful but deadly mermaids and your task will be to help them survive this dangerous mission. Help Vikings collect rage to turn them in the Berzerk mode, land three or more Mermaid Scatters to trigger the Free Spins mode and benefit from up to 21 freebies, which come with tasty bonuses. Land Treasure Chest or Golden Treasure Chests to collect various prizes.
If you had the pleasure of playing the Vikings Go Wild video slot, then you will recognize the fearless crew, led by Red Warrior. His faithful sidekick, the One-eyed Viking is also there, as well as the Witchdoctor and the Shieldmaiden. Four kinds of Coins are used for low-paying symbols – Gold, Silver, Copper and Iron. The Wild will substitute for all symbols but the Mermaid Scatter, which triggers the Free Spins Mode. The Treasure Chest lands only on reel 4 and awards prizes, while the Golden Treasure Chest lands only on reel 5 and also awards prizes.
If you want to be a part of the fearless crew, there are several simple but important rules you need to obey. The reels of the 2016 release are set on the deck of the Viking ship. The Yggdrasil title features five reels, three rows and benefits from 25 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. Three of a kind is the minimum for landing payouts. Betting starts at £0.25 and the maximum bet is set at £125 per single spin. Land winning combinations with Vikings symbols to collect rage and turn them in the Berzerk mode.
Once one of the Viking symbols collects enough rage, the Free Spins feature is triggered, with the Viking in question in the Berzerk mode. This mode will enable the Viking to defeat each of the Mermaids that attack him, once he appears on the reels, and to transform into a sticky Wild, which will be locked in the position for the remainder of the feature.
The Free Spins feature is also triggered by three or more Mermaid Scatters on the reels. Gamers can get 7, 14 or 21 freebies, depending on the number of Scatters landed. Before the feature starts, gamers will get one of the following bonuses: the Ragnarok Free Spins, where all Viking symbols are berserk and all of them will turn into sticky Wilds once they appear on the reels; a starting Wild, which will become a sticky Wild straight away; a sticky Wild Reel; 1-3 extra freebies; 5 extra Treasure Chests and Golden Treasure Chests added on the reels.
The Treasure Chest appears on reels 4 only and can be landed both during the Free Spins feature and the base game. Gamers can get coin prizes and up to 21 free spins in base game, and coin prizes, extra free spins, Wild reels and up to 2 extra Wilds during the Free Spins feature. The Golden Treasure Chest appears only on reel 5 and can award gamers with the same bonuses as the Treasure Chest, the only difference is the Ragnarok feature and the Rage Boost in the base game.
If our sources are correct, gamers can land up to 4,000 times the bet in a single spin. The Red Warrior is the symbol that pays the most, offering 250 coins for five of a kind. The Ragnarok feature is where you can expect massive wins, due to the fact that all Vikings symbols will turn into sticky Wilds once they appear on the reels. Vikings Go Berzerk’s RTP is 96.1%.
