About Vikings Go Wild Slots

Vikings are endlessly fascinating and so it is hardly surprising that there are plenty of Viking-themed slots. Yggdrasil Gaming’s contribution to the theme comes in form of their Vikings Go Wild slot. Whilst the layout of 5x4 is a little unusual, the slot’s graphics leave us oddly disappointed. But there is excitement to be had, especially with the Sticky Wilds during the Free Spins feature.

Screenshot of the Vikings Go Wild Slot

In Yggdrasil’s slot Vikings Go Wild we rather get the impression that they have gone smug. All four featured Vikings on the reels sport the same smug expression, inspiring little ferocity let alone fear. Accompanied are the four by various coins with runic letters on them. Whilst the slot does look good, we’re missing the detail to attention that we’ve seen in some of Yggdrasil’s other slots. The accompanying soundtrack is fierce and certainly meant to be epic. It goes well with the theme and doesn’t grind too much.

Winning combinations offer up a fiery display, which is nicely executed and it sure helps that symbols usually come stacked, which means a lot of reels can burst into flame at once when you do manage to score a winning combination. We do like the Free Spins symbol, because the ships sail has the Yggdrasil tree on it, which is also Yggdrasil Gaming’s logo.


Bonuses

Don’t think that we didn’t like Vikings Go Wild just because we’re underwhelmed with the look of it. The slot has plenty of excitement to offer, especially when the Free Spins are triggered.

When at least three ships sail onto your reels, you’ll get 8 free spins. Four ships will get you 16 free spins and 5 ships will come with 24 free spins.
What makes the Free Spin round interesting are the Sticky Wilds, but also the Sticky Vikings. All Wilds will automatically stick when the spin onto the reels. Better still, if you happened to have any Wilds on the reels when the Free Spins were triggered, they will carry over into the Free Spin Round.

On top of that, however, the Vikings can also become sticky. The Viking symbols will be trying to fend off a sea creature that appears during this bonus round. If they succeed, they’ll stick. If they don’t then they get spun along on the next spin. So you better hope those smug Vikings are as fierce as their reputation.

There’s also a Treasure Chest that can appear on reel 5 during the base game as well as the Free Spin feature. Should it show up in the base game, you’ll get anywhere between 8 and 12 free spins and can win up to 40 times your stake. In the Free Spin Round it will give you 2 to 4 free spins, though, and a cash prize worth up to 40 times your stake on top of that. It’s also possible to get a Wild Reel.

Summary

As usual, Vikings Go Wild is all about the Free Spin feature, but for once it doesn’t stop there, because the Treasure Chest can make things interesting in the base game as well. Whilst the graphics don’t impress us with their detail, the effects do manage to make up for it.

Since it’s a highly volatile slot, you will find yourself going long stretches without a win. But stacked symbols do work in your favour when winning combinations and Wilds work together. Vikings Go Wild isn’t Yggdrasil’s best slot, but it’s definitely worth a look, especially if you like Viking slots and want to know what their take on it is.
