Head back to the glory days of Viking rule with the ‘Vikings Go…’ slots games trilogy. Produced by Yggdrasil Gaming Casinos, the triology includes ‘Vikings Go Wild’, ‘Vikings Go Bezerk’ and ‘Vikings Go To Hell’. These online slot machines feature 5 reels and 25 paylines, and are playable from 10p per spin on mobile and computer devices.
Vikings and Norse mythology are currently widely popular, following on from a range of TV shows such as ‘Game of Thrones’ and movies like ‘How to Train Your Dragon’. Yggdrasil Gaming’s online slots don’t disappoint fans of the genre. Filled with rich Viking-related imagery with long ships and brightly coloured sails, the games are great fun and the images an effective touch.
How to play the slots online
Players – or should it be Vikings? – will be prompted to place bets before boarding the ship and heading off for adventure. A few simple options will allow you to do this:
- Clicking +/- next to Coin Value will allow you to set the coins size, with different ranges offered for each game
- You can set a Maximum Bet allowed and the reels will spin automatically at that bet
- To speed up your gameplay, the Autoplay option can be used to keep the reels turning automatically up to a selected number of spins, with no interruptions
- Once you’ve made your bets, click ‘Spin’ to start the reels moving
Extra online slot features
Show up 3 or more scatter symbols on your reels, and you’ll trigger off the free spins feature of the game. The number of spins grows exponentially depending on the number of scatter symbols you land, and there are a few variations depending on the game. ‘Vikings Go To Hell’ will score you 7, 12 or 16 free spins for 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols respectively. ‘Vikings Go Bezerk’ is a bit more generous with 7, 14 or 21 free spins on offer.
In ‘Vikings Go Bezerk’ there is a ‘standard’ Treasure Chest which will always appear on reel 4. If you land this symbol, you can select one of the five prizes offered. The Golden Treasure Chest is set to land on reel 5, and again you can choose one of the five prizes offered to you.
Both these Treasure Chests can land in both the base game and in Free Spins mode, however you’ll get much more generous prizes in the Free Spin option. For the Treasure Chest, Free Spins prizes can include up to 100 coins, a Wild reel or an extra 2-4 spins. The Golden Treasure Chest in the Free Spins mode offers massive prizes of up to 10,000 coins alongside Wild reels or extra Wilds.
Every time you win on a Viking, they collect rage. Extra rage is a great boost to help you achieve bigger wins. In a nice link to the Nordic Theme and title of one of the trilogy, a Viking goes into ‘Bezerk’ mode when its rage meter gets full, as well as offering you 7 free spins.
Great imagery for fans of online casinos
The games make a great nod to the Norse theme with imagery of Viking battle ships and sails. In ‘Vikings Go Wild’, two wooden dragon heads indicative of Viking long ships make an appearance, with the reels set against an olive green background. ‘Vikings Go Bezerk’ continues the ship theme with a red sail forming the backdrop to the reels, surrounded by a blue sky. The third in the online slot series, ‘Vikings Go To Hell’ steps away from this imagery with fiery red flames in the background to reflect the title, however it still features Norse symbols on the reels and many of the other features players have grown to love.
Differences of the slot games
As well as the appearances there are some differences between the three games, with a different range of playing options available in each.
- ‘Vikings Go Wild’ has a range of coin sizes from 0.01 to 2, alongside a jackpot of 250.
- ‘Vikings Go Bezerk’ expands this range slightly, with coin size ranging from 0.01 to 5, and keeping the same jackpot of 250.
- ‘Vikings Go To Hell’ steps it up another gear, with the coin size range running from 0.1 to 100, and the jackpot increased to 500. This game also includes 5 bonus rounds.
Verdict of these online slot games
The Vikings trilogy are popular as being an easy to learn, simple and highly entertaining game from Yggdrasil Gaming. There are some great features adding plenty of fun to the game, and the graphics on offer are brilliant and add a great deal to the gameplay, giving players a great deal of satisfaction.
