Vikings Go Wild from YggDrasil Gaming: Slot Review - get your helmet on

Hop aboard a Viking longboat and take to the high seas to seek out battle and treasure with these crazy Vikings!

This game is all about a bunch of no nonsense Vikings and their battles at sea. The first thing that struck me about this game was the introduction video. It was very polished indeed and gave us a glimpse into what these wild Vikings are up to at the moment.

From what I can gather, they seem to be fighting a gigantic octopus as well as each other!

It is a 5 reel slot game with 25 paylines and chockful of interesting features to keep you entertained for many hours!

Special Features

The first feature that I noticed while playing this game was that special symbols will trigger different bonuses. For instance, if you match 3 or more Free Spin symbols then the Free Spins mode is triggered. The number of free spins will be based on how many symbols land across the reels. It is possible to win up to 24 free spins. During this mode, Vikings can turn into sticky Wilds and if they fight off sea creatures successfully then they will be sticky throughout the round as well. There is huge potential for winning combinations here not to mention great to be had too!

The other nice feature of this game is the Treasure Chest symbol. This symbol offers free spins if it lands on reel 5. In the base game, it can award 8-12 free spins and up to 1000 coins whereas in the Free Spins mode, it can award 2-4 Free spins, 1000 coins but also the Wild Reel feature is added.

Theme and Graphics

The game is very polished and the vikings really come to life on the reels and as mentioned before, I really enjoyed the intro video when starting the game.

The graphics are nice and clean and the vikings have a cool 3D model shape.

The animations are excellent and I particularly enjoyed seeing the vikings fight off the octopus when the Free Spins mode was triggered.

The music has a real epic adventure movie feel to it and it does make you feel like you are standing on the deck of an ancient Viking ship at times.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots

The game has 5 reels, 25 paylines, an excellent RTP of 96.3% and a small jackpot of 1,000 coins.

Below is a summary taken from the PayOut Table from the game. The amount won for each combination depends on the value of the bet when you spin the reels.
