Vikings Go Wild has already established itself as one of the go-to games in the Yggdrasil mobile slots range and, as slots development tradition would dictate, when you have a hit on your hands, you go back for more while the going is good. If the Vikings were a bit wild before, they are well and truly furious now, and some angry Norse warriors are of course the stars of the show right here on Vikings Go Berzerk. As a sequel, we can expect to see a few elements of the first game and some notable improvements too. Given how good that first game was, some improvements sound like music to our ears!
What to Expect
The game kicks things off in a large enough fashion, with four rows of symbols in play. Generally, this would mean around forty win lines as a minimum, but that is not the case here as Yggdrasil has plumped instead for just 25 of them – not that this is by any means a bad thing. The wins still tick around nicely, especially with the assistance of the wild card, although we have to say that the features are clearly the stars of the show here.
The first one that players will notice is the Rage Meter, mainly because it is always in view. It depicts all of the Vikings that can appear on the board and basically tracks just how angry they are at any given time – the more you use them for wins, the angrier they get and the more their meter fills. You are working towards getting them as riled up as possible before the free spins hit, as a full meter ensures that the Viking will be in Berzerk mode when that happens.
The free spins themselves are triggered in a standard enough manner, with players looking to land three, four or five scatters for seven, fourteen or 21 free spins respectively. One of five features are selected at random prior to the spins playing out, with players potentially starting with a sticky wild or reel or with between one and three more spins being tacked on to their starting total, waiting to be played through as normal. When a Viking lands on the board, it will start to do battle with the siren, much like on the first game, and if it wins the battle, it will then stick in place as a wild card for the rest of the round. This is where the Rage Meter makes its mark, as a Berzerk Viking will always win this battle, guaranteeing that it will be a sticky wild when it all comes down to it.
Finally, players can also aim to land treasure chests over the course of both standard and free spins, with a regular one on the fourth reel and a golden one on the fifth. On reel four, players can grab a coin win or potentially trigger the free spins immediately. A reel five chest can contain both of the above, as well as the potential to add a quarter of a meter to every Viking and also to grant instant access to Ragnarok free spins. When free spins are active, both chests can contain coin wins, between two and four additional spins and also wild reels.
The MobileCasino.net Verdict
Vikings Go Wild was a favourite of ours, but Vikings Go Berzerk is even better. It is quite possibly the best mobile slot in the Yggdrasil range right now and that probably tells you all that you need to know about whether you should be playing it or not! It always feels like something is happening on the game, even with 25 lines being on the low side for this layout, and to say it is both interesting and exciting would be an understatement!
