Vikings Go Berzerk Reloaded (Yggdrasil)

Vikings Go Berzerk Reloaded (Yggdrasil)Yggdrasil is regularly creating slot games, and 2021 has been a great year for this developer.

They have a new addition to their popular online slots, under the title, Vikings Go Berzerk Reloaded. The original Vikings Go Berzerk hit the market back in 2016, and there have been other releases thereafter, like Vikings Go Wild, and Vikings Go To Hell.

There is a notable improvement from the original slot, and I love the potential in this new release where the jackpot has shot from the original 4,000x to 25,000x the stake.

Below is what I found out as a real money punter on the new Vikings title:

Game Set-Up

On the game are 5x4 reels with 25 active lines. There is a long list of features as well, and among them are scatters, regular and multiplier wilds (up to 8x), sticky wilds, free spins, Ragnarok Spins, Treasure Chests, and random Berzerks.

Betting and Prizes

The betting options are pretty fair, and you get to work with the 25 fixed lines. Yggdrasil allows coins of between $0.01 and $2 per line, and this is how I was able to place bets ranging between $0.25 and $50 per spin.

One of the most notable improvements about this Reloaded version, is the sharp increase in the top payout. The original release paid a maximum of 4,000x the stake, while Vikings Go Berzerk Reloaded goes to as high as 25,000x the stake.

The original had medium volatility, but with the massive potential in this reloaded version, expect very high volatility.

Vikings Go Berzerk Reloaded Features

A Golden Wild logo is a feature to watch out for. As it serves as the substitute whenever it appears in regular form. The multiplier version serves as a replacement as well, in addition to boosting your wins by 2x, 4x, or even 8x.

To access the free spins, I had to land between 3 and 5 scattered Free Spin symbols, and there is the option to get the paid version.

These are the possible outcomes, and they all depend on the number of scattered symbols landed:

3 scatters give you 7 free spins;

4 scatters give you 8 free spins plus 1 Berzerk Viking;

5 scatters will deliver 9 free spins, plus 2 Berzerk Vikings.

The wild symbols will also give access to the multiplier which can go all the way to 8x. While in the free spins mode, you may be lucky to get the 5th reel to bring over some Treasure Chest icons. If this happened, you will get one of the following:

3 extra free spins;

2 sticky wilds;

1 extra Berzerker Viking plus 1 extra free spin;

A double to the multiplier wilds (for one spin), can get to 8x.

Finally, there is a random opportunity to get a Ragnarok Spin. With this, all 4 Viking characters will be transformed into Berzerkers. They will now be strong enough to win all fights against the Sirens, and will eventually become wilds.

Theme & Design

Vikings Go Berzerk Reloaded has maintained most of the graphics from its predecessor, but I noticed that the location has changed.

In the original title, they were in a longboat, getting ready for battle. Here, we see them in an ice cave.

While some of the graphics may have been changed, the symbols remain the same, and they include four Viking warriors that serve as premium symbols and four-coin versions for the low-paying ones. The feature symbols are the Siren scatter and the Wild.

Conclusion

Vikings Go Berzerk Reloaded appears to be an upgrade over the predecessor in many aspects. although some features have been dropped and the volatility increased, we now receive far higher payouts, up to 25,000x the stake.

It appears to be a version that would largely attract seasoned players who are comfortable with the added risk, whereas, casual players would likely prefer the original slot.
