Casino Heroes has added the new Vikings Go Berzerk slot from Yggdrasil Gaming to their casino, this is the natural successor to the Vikings Go Wild slot, and features a very similar theme but with lots of great new and exciting features and bonus features.
The base game of Vikings Go Berzerk is a 5×4 reel slot with 25 fixed paylines, with the reels strips being made up from a selection of coins along with the much higher paying Viking symbols, new to this slot are the special “Rage Meters” across the bottom of the ship which once fully filled up will instantly trigger a special free spins round.
In addition to this new rage feature, there are special Treasure Chest symbols which are present on reel 4 and when these land on the reel you can win a coin value prize or even trigger the free spins bonus round with anywhere from 7 up to 21 free spins!
To make things even more interesting on reel 5 there is an even more potent Golden Treasure Chest with bigger coin wins, Rage Boost to all Characters, and the special Ragnarok Free Spins mode on offer.
These special treasure chests are also on offer during the bonus rounds and offer a whole different range of rewards during the free spins including extra free spins, extra sticky wilds and entire wild reels!
Given all of the extra random bonus features on this slot, there are actually multiple ways to trigger the free spins rounds, and thanks to a further random bonus enhancement before the free spins begin they all seem to play out slightly differently too.
If you are a fan of slot machines with sticky wild bonus rounds, simply go play it now!
Vikings Go Berzerk – Bonus Features
The regular method for triggering the main bonus round is by landing 3 or more of the “Free Spin Scatter symbols” on the reels, additional Scatters will grant more free spins as follows,
- 3 Scatters award 7 free spins.
- 4 Scatters award 14 free spins.
- 5 Scatters award 21 free spins.
Along with the standard method, players can also trigger the free spins from either the regular Treasure Chests and the Golden Treasure Chest found on reels 4 and 5.
The Golden Treasure Chest contains at times a special Ragnarok Free Spin Trigger, during this bonus round all 4 of the Vikings are enraged and will become sticky wilds when they land anywhere on the reels.
The final way of triggering the free spins is by filling up any of the special Rage meters across the bottom of the slot, this is done by scoring wins in the base game that include that particular Viking, the bigger the win the more rage is generated.
When the free spins play out there are a number of special random bonus features that can be added before the round begins, this includes things such as extra free spins, extra wilds, or even wild reels.
During the free spins any of the Vikings that land on the reels will fight the sea monster, if they win the battle they become Sticky Wilds for the rest of the bonus round, if the Vikings are in rage mode they will always beat the creature and become Sticky Wilds!
Rage Meter bonus rounds
Once you have filled up any of the rage meters in the base game by scoring wins featuring that particular Viking a special free spins bonus round is instantly triggered granting 7 Free Spins with that Viking being enraged for the entire round.
This means anytime they appear on the reels during the bonus you are guaranteed they will win the fight and become sticky wild symbols for the rest of the bonus.
The theoretical RTP (Return to Player) for Vikings Go Berserk is a very decent 96.1%.
Overall Thoughts on the Vikings Go Berserk slot
Vikings Go Berserk is an amazing release from Yggdrasil, since this is a newer version of an existing slot we weren’t expecting too much, but given the wealth and variety of all the new bonus features and the way that they interact together the bonus rounds can differ greatly, making for an exciting game with something always going on.
The Ragnarok Free Spins Mode, Golden Treasure Chests and Rage Free Spins all make for a very exciting slot machine, and given the bonus round uses the very popular Sticky Wilds feature it all adds up to make this a brilliant release from Yggdrasil.
