After Vikings Go Wild slot became celebrated to a great extent in the gaming community, Yggdrasil Gaming released a sequel which became just as popular. The follow-up is named Viking Go Berzerk and it features a company of fearless Viking warriors at sea, trying to resist the temptations of the Sirens and their enchanting song. The backdrop shows us a ship and in the forefront, on the side of the ship and below the reels, you can see several shields. Each shield is that Viking’s rage meter, the one whose portrait is in front of a given shield/meter. Animated fire appears when three or more symbols form a winning combo, but otherwise there are no animations. Viking Go Berzerk RTP is 96.1% and the top payout is capped at ₹50,000,000.
The game has 5 reels, 4 rows and 25 paylines. The lines are fixed and active on every spin, allowing combinations to form from left to right. The player clicks on the Spin button and the reels start to rotate. When they come to a stop, if three or more identical symbols line up on one of the active lines a corresponding payout is credited to the player’s balance. If not, the player loses the wager and gains the chance to bet on the next spin. The coin value can be adjusted, and as the coin value goes up and down so does the cash bet. The total bet per spin is in the range of 10 to 12,500 rupees.
Only 8 standard symbols participate in the base game, 4 character symbols representing two Vikings, a shield-maiden and wise man and 4 coins which bring lower payouts. The Wild symbol is a large shield with ‘Wild’ written on it, and it has the ability to substitute regular symbols. The Free Spin symbol and the treasure chest symbol cannot be replaced by the Wild.
The Free Spins round starts when three, four or five of the Free Spin Scatter symbols land anywhere in view. They award 7, 14 or 21 free spins, respectively. Aside from the freebies, the player also gets one additional feature from these five: all Vikings go Berzerk, a Sticky Wild is awarded on a randomly selected position, a Sticky Wild reel, 1-3 extra free spins and 5 extra treasure or golden chests added to the reels. More freebies can be retriggered, and the player can also witness a battle between the Vikings and the Sirens when the Vikings enter Berzerk mode.
Treasure chests will only appear on reel 4 and award 1 out of 5 available prizes. In Free Spins mode, the chest awards higher prizes (50-1,000 coins, 2 extra Wilds, Wild Reel, extra freebies etc.). he golden chest only lands on reel 5, awarding coin prizes, freebies and extra Wilds, as well. Never keep your eyes from the rage meters. Whenever a Viking’s rage meter is full, he/she will go in Berzerk mode and award the player with 7 free spins.
