The end of the year is always a busy time for slots developers, who release plenty of new games to keep their players entertained over the holiday season. This year sees Yggdrasil Gaming contributing with a creative end of year release that focuses on the antics of a group of Vikings. Vikings Go Berzerk is the title of the new slot, which is set to be released this month by Yggdrasil.
The game contains 5 reels and 25 paylines, and has been optimised for a variety of desktop and mobile gaming channels. This new game is a sequel to the original Vikings Go Wild slot, which focussed on the Vikings exploring new terrain and searching for big treasures. The new slot instead sees them sailing across the high seas to pillage their loot.
Vikings Go Berzerk is set on the ocean, with sirens at each side of the reels. The symbols on the reels include a variety of Viking characters, as well as gold, silver and bronze coins. There is also a Scatter symbol, which is shown in the form of a beautiful blonde siren emerging from the sea. The Wild is a Wild logo, which fills in for other symbols to add extra wins to players’ bankrolls. Last but not least is the treasure chest Bonus symbol, which appears only on reels 2 and 4.
Yggdrasil has packed their new online slot full of bonus features as well. The treasure chest Bonus game is triggered randomly, offering players the chance to pick one of five treasure-filled vessels to win a cash prize of up to 10,000 coins – along with up to 21 free spins.
Free spins can also be triggered by landing 3 or more Scatter symbols on the reels, which will see players receiving a generous 7, 14 or 21 free spins. During the free spins game, the Vikings will also have to win battles against various monsters to add Sticky Wilds to the reels. The Ragnarok feature can also be won during the bonus games, turning every Viking character into Sticky Wilds to boost players’ chances of scoring cash.
To top it all off, filling up each of the main characters’ Rage Meters will trigger an additional 7 free spins, along with turning the character berserk and creating guaranteed Sticky Wilds. With a medium variance and an RTP of over 96%, big things are expected from Vikings Go Berzerk. Canadian players will soon be able to enjoy the game at select online and mobile casinos, so it waits to be seen whether the new slot will be as big a hit as its predecessor.
