The Vikings go Berzerk Online Slot by Yggdrasil
Vikings go Berzerk is a Scandinavian-themed slot with 5 reels and 25 paylines. The game by Yggdrasil features both progressive and standard free spins, special chest symbols with prizes to choose from and quest elements during the main game and free spins.
Vikings go Berzerk Free Spins
A free spins session is started when 3 or more Scatter symbols with the phrase Free Spins appear anywhere on the screen. These symbols award 7, 14 or 21 spins for 3, 4 or 5 identical symbols respectively. Before the bonus round is started, a bonus feature is chosen at random and will be active during the round of free spins. They are:
- Ragnarök Free Spins - all Vikings are Berzerk
- Free Spins - 1 to 3 extra Free Spins
- Starting Wild - as the round starts, a Sticky Wild symbol appears anywhere on the reels
- Starting Wild Reel - at the beginning of each spin 1 of the 5 reels is filled with Wild symbols

- 1 Wild Reel
- 2 Extra Wilds
A series of free spins cannot be re-triggered during the bonus round, although you can keep the series going if you receive them in the bonus feature awarded at the beginning of the round or obtain them as a prize from the chests.
Vikings Go Berzerk Quest Feature
The slot Vikings go Berzerk offers another way of starting bonus free spins if you complete an extra task (quest). Just below the reels, a bit above the control panel you can see 4 portraits of the Vikings that are the same as the characters that appear on the reels.
Around each portrait you will find the fury scale which is a semi-circle with a shield edging. When a winning combo with one of the Viking symbols lands on the screen, part of the fury scale fills with red light. As soon as the light fills the whole semi-circle, a series of 7 bonus free spins will be triggered. During free spins the Viking who had the full fury scale, will go berserk (which is a specific feeling of fury among the Scandinavian warriors) and fight against the Siren (mermaid).
According to the rules of the free spins feature, if the Viking beats the Siren (mermaid), this icon turns into the extra Wild symbol. As the berserk guarantees the win (this is mentioned in the rules), two Wild symbols and the portrait of the chosen warrior with the word Wild, are active during the free spins round.
Symbols and Payouts of the Slot
All winning combinations are created when identical symbols land on neighbouring reels, along an active payline and start on the leftmost reel.
There are 8 regular symbols whose only function is to form combinations. They are iron, copper, silver and gold coins and the portraits of the Vikings. There is a man with a white beard, a man with an eye patch, a man with a tattoo and a lady with face paint.
You can find out the payline patterns and the multipliers for the winning combinations in the pay table which opens by clicking the i icon in the additional line of the menu.
The Vikings go Berzerk slot by Yggdrasil features 4 special icons. These symbols perform an additional function, play by irregular rules and enable bonus features, they are:
- The Wild symbol - an icon with the word Wild that completes the combinations of regular symbols by replacing the missing symbol in a combination
- The Scatter symbol - a Siren (mermaid) icon with the words Free Spins, when it lands in 3, 4 or 5 random fields of the game screen, it activates a series of 7, 14 or 21 free spins
- A treasure chest - only lands on reel 4 and gives an instant bonus, you should choose one of the two awards
- bonus coin amount 50 - 1,000
- 7 - 21 free spins
- A golden chest with jewellery - only lands on reel 5 and expands the choice of potential prizes:
- An instant bonus payout of 25-10,000 coins
- 7 - 21 Free Spins
- Rage Boost
- Activating Ragnarök Free Spins
The bonus features activated by the bonus symbols are often more lucrative than combinations formed in the main game. This is why experienced players prefer the Autoplay mode so the landing of these special symbols occurs quicker. Please note that the mode does not affect the chances of the required icons appearing. It just helps make the gameplay faster.
