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.
