Vikings Go Berzerk is a 5-reel slot with 4 rows and 25 fixed winning lines that award payouts for matching symbols that align from left to right. Released in November 2016 by Yggdrasil Gaming, the slot is a sequel to the studio’s massively popular Vikings Go Wild. This time around, the four quirky Vikings take on the high seas to battle the enchanting sirens, partly human creatures who tempt sailors to their death in mythology.
Paytable and Payouts
The 5 reels spin over a backdrop containing the sails of a Viking longship. The game is equipped with 8 regular symbols, with high-value payouts awarded for matching symbols with the main Viking characters.
The Vikings can earn you between 20x and 250x your line bet. Each character has their Rage Meter, which gets filled each time they form a winning combination. The bigger the win, the faster you fill the Rage Meter. A full Rage Meter awards 7 free spins with the respective Viking in berzerk mode. Low values are assigned to the symbols with coins in different colors.
Extra Features and Symbols of Interest
The shield with the word “wild” on the front is the substitution symbol in Vikings Go Berzerk. It can replace all other icons to create more winning combinations, the only exception being the siren scatter. There are also two special symbols with treasure chests which can appear only on the fourth and fifth reels.
The Free Spins feature is activated when three, four, or five siren scatters appear in any position on the reels. Players can receive 7, 14, or 21 bonus spins depending on the number of triggering scatters. Additionally, they get one of the following random bonuses for the duration of the free spins:
- All four Vikings turn berzerk
- Sticky wilds appear in a random position on the reels
- Sticky wilds appear on any of the five reels at random
- 1 to 3 additional bonus spins
- Up to 5 additional treasure chests on the reels
The four characters can all transform into sticky wilds during free spins by destroying the siren, which always happens when a Viking is in a berzerk mode. It is impossible to retrigger more bonus rounds within the free spins feature.
The wooden chest that appears only on the fourth reel can multiply your payline bet between 50x and 1,000x or activate 7 to 21 free spins in the base game. It awards bigger prizes when it appears within the bonus feature.
The golden treasure chest appears only on the fifth reel, awarding various prizes including 250 to 10,000 coins, a boost of the Rage Meter, a wild reel, two extra wilds, and the Ragnarök free spins.
This action-packed sequel to Yggdrasil’s Vikings Go Wild deserves to be given a try, especially if you are into 3D-rendered graphics and clever bonus features. If this one appeals to you, we recommend you try the other two games from the series, Vikings Go to Hell and Vikings Go Wild.
