Vikings Go Berzerk
Vikings go Berzerk is the second slot in the iconic Vikings Go series developed by renowned slot studio Yggdrasil. This epic 5-reel, 25 payline slot really propelled this epic series into the stratosphere thanks to its stunning graphics and innovative and truly exciting bonus features and mechanics.
This slot opens with a dramatic cinematic introductory video that sees a horde of angry Vikings turned to stone in the midst of a fierce battle at sea against evil Sirens. This sets the tone wonderfully for what's set to be a wild ride as players spin the reels in hope of collecting rage, defeating enemies and most importantly, winning big cash.
Once into the game itself, you'll see that the reels are set upon the sails of a beautifully crafted Viking longship. Sat in front of the ship are beautiful sirens that might look harmless, but in reality, are nothing but trouble.
High-paying symbols are the four main Viking characters, whilst low-paying symbols are four different minted coins that are each made from different materials, with gold being the most valuable.
When players trigger a bonus the sirens jump off their rocks in front of the longship, the sky changes colour to ominous red and the eyes of the longship light up to match, the mood immediately changes as the Vikings go into battle with the Sirens.
Vikings Go Berzerk plays like most Yggdrasil slots, the interface is simple and laid out across the bottom of the game screen. On the left-hand side of the screen is a + button that opens up a sub-menu which allows players to read the game info and change vital gameplay settings including game speed, autoplay settings and sound settings.
Players can change the coin value of each spin (from 0.10 to 125.00) by pressing the arrows either side of the value. The only other two buttons players should be aware of can be found either side of the spin button in the centre, these are 'Max Bet' button and 'Autospin' button (that allows players to automate spins infinitely).
Above the main buttons and below the reels sit four portraits of the game's main Viking characters. Every time players form a winning combination with any of the four Viking symbols showing up then the portraits will be filled with 'rage' on a meter, when this meter is full the Vikings go 'Berzerk' which sees free spins trigger and their symbol appears as a sticky wild.
Whilst this slot is wonderfully designed with a lot going for it in terms of bonus features and mechanics, it is distinctly average with regards to win potential. Vikings Go Berzerk has a decent RTP of 96.10% and a below-par maximum win of 4,000x players initial stake.
Vikings Go Berzerk is a pretty solid game full of incredible features and gameplay. That mixed with the outstanding design make this a Viking themed slot to check out. Sadly the max payout is a lot lower than we'd like, but as long as you know that going in you'll love this online slot.
