Yggdrasil is notorious for offering up highly detailed, exciting slots and Vikings Go Wild is no exception. Take to the seas and become one of a Viking raiding party as you spin the reels on this epic slot. Pillage your way across the seas in search of treasure, which is revealed to you through a series of innovative bonuses as well as a few that you’ll be familiar with. Covering five reels and offering up 25 playlines, Vikings Go Wild is right here ready to take you on an adventure!
Set upon a backdrop of a Viking ship at sea, this beautifully designed slot isn’t just about the looks. Once you get going you’ll reveal some pretty amazing in-game features too. There are free spins (more on that in a bit), wilds and even treasure chests to collect. Each of these gives you some serious winning chances. Those 25 paylines are fixed as well, so make sure you budget well for each spin and ensure that you have the cash to play this game to the bitter end!
There are nine symbols available on Vikings Go Wild. Each of these is carefully designed, following the Viking theme. The lowest of these are the four coins – green, copper, silver and gold. Green is the lowest payout, giving just 50 coins if you land three or more on the reels; gold is the highest at 80 coins. There are also four Vikings and these symbols payout significantly better. A blonde girl is the bottom of the pile at 175 coins with the brown-haired man at a massive 250.
Part of the fun of this slot is that the Vikings are going wild. With that in mind there’s a wild icon represented by the game logo and this can replace all other icons to create more winning combinations (although this excludes any of the additional bonus icons). The scatter icon is a ship and will award a series of free spins depending on how many land on the reels. Finally, there is a Treasure Chest, which only lands on the fifth reel and has some surprises up its sleeve.
Landing 3 to 5 Ship scatters will pay out 8, 16 or 24 spins, respectively. Now, what makes these spins extra special is the Sticky Wild feature that kicks in at the same time. Every time a Viking icon lands on the reels it can turn into a sticky wild. In order to make this transition the Viking will fight a sea monster. If they are successful they turn into a sticky wild and remain as such for the duration of the free spins. The wild symbols landing automatically turn sticky!
There’s no specific jackpot in place, but rather you can accrue huge wins through a mixture of the bonus features. If you’re lucky enough to land a Treasure Chest, then things can get even more exciting. This will only appear on the fifth reel and in the base game, once opened, can payout anything from 8 to 12 free spins or 40x your initial bet. If it lands during the Free Spins feature it will offer 2 to 4 extra spins, 40x your stake and even a wild reel!
Vikings Go Wild has 25 different paylines. However, these are fixed so you will have to play all of them at any one time. This is no bad thing though because the coin value and betting limits are low. This means that you can put as little as 0.01 on a single payline meaning that you’ll only be spending that minimum 0.25 per spin. Players that prefer to get some bigger wins under their belts can “go wild” and place the top bet of 50.00 per spin and see what treasure comes their way!
RTP or return to player rate is the amount that a game can be expected to return to a player when they have played a session. However, this value is theoretical and is calculated over thousands of spins, which means that it doesn’t necessarily hold true if you just play a couple of spins. Vikings Go Wild has a very decent RTP of 96.3%, which means that from every £100 spent you can expect £96.30 back. However, the RTP can be significantly lower if you only play for a short time.
Variance or volatility refers to the size and frequency of a win. Low volatility games will pay out very often, but the payout values will be small. High volatility games, on the other hand, such as Vikings Go Wild, will pay out huge wins, but these won’t come around very often. With Vikings Go Wild it’s therefore important to maintain your bankroll, paying what you can afford and waiting patiently for when those big wins hit for hit they will. If patience is not your thing, then maybe neither is Vikings Go Wild!
Vikings Go Wild is a stunningly designed game offering a more realistic look combined with a cartoony feel – think “How to Train Your Dragon”! Due to its high volatility, you will have to be patient, but those big wins will come around especially when you have triggered the Free Spins feature. This is where you can nab as much as 200x your initial bet, potentially walking away with some really serious cash. Why not have a look at it today and see how you fare as a Viking!
