We don’t normally associate the Vikings with being mild-mannered and considerate but in fact they probably were in general; we tend to view them as violent invaders, pillagers and adventurers and that’s the theme behind this online slot from Yggdrasil Gaming. It’s called Vikings Go Wild, it sticks securely to the stereotypes and comes with two separate bonus features.
Vikings Go Wild is a five reel slot with four rows and twenty five fixed paylines; behind the reels we can just about make out wither end of the Viking longship rising and falling with the motion of the chilly sea.
The high value symbols are four characters from this adventure – three chaps and a lady, the lower value symbols are four coins – gold, silver, bronze and a greenish colour.
The wild symbol is a big gold ‘Wild’ and it will replace all others except the ‘Free Spin’ scatter icon.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the Free Spins scatter symbols anywhere in view and you will receive the following:
- Three Scatters – 8 free spins
- Four Scatters – 16 free spins
- Five Scatters – 24 free spins
When the spins are underway, each Viking character landing on the reels will be attacked by a large tentacled sea creature; if he or she successfully fights it off then they become a sticky wild which remains in place for the rest of the spins. Most will get dragged beneath the ocean waves though. No more spins can be retriggered from this round unless you land the treasure chest (described below).
This appears on reel five in the base game and free spins and will reward you in the following ways:
- Base Game – awards up to 1000 coins or 8-12 free spins
- Free Spins – awards up to 1000 coins, 2-4 free spins or the Wild Reel feature (entire reel is wild for the rest of the spins)
Vikings Go Wild is an apt title for a really enjoyable slot – the graphics are slightly quirky and the bonus features offer some welcome creativity. There’s an RTP of 96.30%.
