Vikings Go Berzerk Slot Review

Vikings Go Berzerk is a video pokie from Yggdrasil. It’s a game that’s packed with free spins and bonus rounds. The graphics are fresh and exciting, featuring – well, you guessed it - some angry Vikings. It’s a 5 reel, 4 row, 25 payline game with an RTP of 96.1%, so there’s plenty of opportunity to win some coins. This is a perfect game for players looking for a wild adventure!

How to play

To get started on your Viking adventure, begin with setting your coin value. That’s really simple – just click on the Plus and Minus buttons under the button called “Coin Value”. Values range from just $0.01 to $5. As all 25 paylines  are always active, this means that minimum bet per spin is $0.25. We also appreciate that the game gives you a warning when you set the Coin Value to the maximum of $5, because it then comes up to $125 per spin! All fine for loaded high rollers, but probably a tad expensive for the rest of us. Conveniently, your bet per spin is shown in “Cash Bet” which is right next to the “Coin Value” button, so you know exactly how much you have at stake with each spin. Once you’re cool, then you can press that spin button in the middle of the screen.

Autoplay is found to the right side of the Spin button. Via the Settings button, which is the orange button with a cogwheel, you can fine tune spin speed, the audio, and other niceties like the option to press your Spacebar to Spin. Sometimes the Settings button is hidden, but you can access it by pressing the pink Plus button on the left side of the screen.

There are tons of special features including the famous Rage meter, which we’ll cover in the Special Features section.

The symbols in Vikings Go Berzerk are as follows, from highest to lowest value:

  • Viking with half his face painted

Graphics and Sounds

Yggdrasil has delivered a top pokie with Vikings Go Berzerk. The game is set on the Vikings’ boat against a clear blue sky that changes as you enter different modes. The angry, but still somehow cute, Vikings are well animated in 3D, and their eyes glow with rage when they go Berzerk. Wins light up fiery paylines and the soundtrack brings you straight to the magnificence of these old Scandinavians.
