If you liked playing Vikings Go Wild, you will be thrilled by the release of Vikings Go Berzerk, developed by Yggdrasil Gaming Company.
The story about the brave Vikings continues as they face a new challenge and conflict evil Sirens in their new pillaging quest for riches.
Things get even better than in the first part as the developers surprise us by adding treats such as Rage Meter and Ragnarök Free Spins.
The background depicts an infamous dragon-ship ready to set sales and the symbols are presented in the form of Viking warriors, Coins and special icons that activate bonus rounds and have sky high value.
What We Love
The abundance of bonus rounds is surreal. Free Spins unlocked by the Bonus Icon are just the beginning and depending on how many icons you manage to land, you will be awarded by 7, 14 or 21 free spins. The bonus mode comes with an extra edge.
Instead of simply ending when the number of spins is used up, an additional bonus is randomly triggered. The new feature can award more free spins, sticky Wild, Wild reels or extra Treasure Chests. We were particularly impressed by the generosity of Golden Treasure Chest feature, even if the player lands it in the main game.
If the same symbol appears on the screen in the Free Spins mode, it is far more profitable as it can award up to 10,000 coins plus extra Wilds and more free spins.
The slots also introduces the Rage meter, where every win accumulates rage. Filling the Rage meter awards more spins and increases the potential wins. Finally something good comes up from bottling up your feelings and holding on to your anger…
What We Do Not Like
It was not easy to find a serious drawback of Vikings Go Berzerk, but we have to mention that it was not really easy to fill the Rage Meter.
It will take quite a few spins before you do that, so you may not want to hold your breath for that to happen. You may accumulate some of your own feelings of rage in the process, but sadly, these will not activate any bonuses.
It does not occur very often that a slot incorporates everything that constitutes a great game. As it happens, Vikings Go Berzerk managed to successfully compete with its predecessor and even surpass the first part in certain aspects.
The innovative approach and theoretical return to player percentage (over 96%) are not the only things that recommend the slot. Free spins and special features around every corner are bound to make even the most demanding player happy.
Although matching Viking Go Wild was a task difficult enough, it seems that with this part, Yggdrasil went a step further – the expectations are even higher for their next release.
Still, we are not concerned; it seems that the company knows exactly what they are doing and we are certain they will have a few more tricks up their sleeve.
