Head to the high seas as you battle the Kraken for monster wins as your Vikings go very wild.
Embark on a True Nordic Adventure in the most iconic Yggdrasil slot Vikings Go Wild.
This Vikings Go Wild slot is one of the ‘fastest-paced’ slots released by the team from Yggdrasil Gaming. It doesn’t quite boast the cutesy look that Yggdrasil slots have become known for, but we are sure that you will find the style of the game easy on the eye.
Vikings Go Wild is a Nordic slot themed game and you will quickly be whisked away to times gone by. Here you will team up with the Viking clan to do battle against monsters on the high seas.
It has a slightly more ‘realistic’ look to it than other slots from Yggdrasil. Sure, there is nothing realistic about monsters in the sea (as far as we know!), but it’s darker than games like Gem Rocks slot or the colourful Golden Fish Tank.
Every so often, an animation will occur which will have a kraken pop out and drag the Vikings to ‘Davey Jones’ Locker’. Yes. It comes complete with their anguished screams. No, it is probably not as traumatising as you think it may be.
We must say that we are fans of the music in this action packed slot. Yes. It repeats. It repeats a lot, but it just sounds so…fierce. This is not a game that you will be muting any time soon.
Our biggest complaint is that whilst there are some tremendous features, however, you will need to spend a substantial amount of cash to see them.
Just before we put this Vikings Go Wild slot review together, we had about 50 spins on the game and no special features came up.
Wins are frequent during the base game, well as frequent as a high volatility slot can get, but we do wish that there was more free spins or bonuses being thrown in our direction.
There is one feature that can occur during the base game. This is a Treasure Chest bonus. If it appears on reel 5, you will be given a bonus like in Lucky Little Gods by Microgaming.
In most cases, this is going to be some cash, but we ever so often it also dishes out those fantastic free spins bonus games.
If you score yourself three Viking ships, then you will trigger free spins. The number of Viking ships will dictate how many free spins you get:
It is in this game mode that the Vikings will start to do battle with the creatures of the deep.
During your free spins, every time a Viking symbol pops up, a monster will attack the Viking. If the Viking wins, the symbol becomes a sticky wild for the rest of your free spins.
If the monster wins, nothing changes. Sadly, you should not expect the Viking to win as much as you might like, which doesn’t change much in other Norse slots like Viking Runecraft by Play’n GO.
Even the ‘trailer’ from Yggdrasil had the Viking losing about 90% of the time. If you are lucky enough to earn 24 free spins then sure, it is likely that you will have more than a few sticky wilds on the reels.
If you have just 8 free spins then you better pray for lady luck to look after each one of your Vikings.
For a 5 reel, 25 payline slot Vikings Go Wild is a great game; and whilst it has a low minimum bet of 0.25 a spin, the max bet here is only $50 a spin.
So high limit gamblers might want to look for a high variance slot with a bigger limit like the Isis slot machine.
We don’t think that Yggdrasil have ever let us down when it comes to the theming of their games. We just wish that this casino slot was not quite so high when it comes to volatility as it would be more welcoming for all.
Still, you can’t deny that those wild wins in the free spins keep you coming back time and again.
