Vikings vs Sea Monsters
Vikings Go Wild opens with a stunning animated 3D movie clip that transitions smoothly into a 4-row, 5-reel slot setup with twin dragons carved in wood to the right and left. This online slot has 25 fixed paylines for 25 possible ways to win each spin. On a win, flames lick the edges of the winning combinations. During Free Spins Mode, Vikings fight the tentacles of a sea creature. The music is low key, yet holds an element of anticipation and adventure.
Vikings Go Wild offers the option to display values for Bet, Total Win, and Balance in either cash or coins, though the default setting is cash. Select a Cash Bet by adjusting the Coin Value ranging from 0.01-4.00. Bet as low as 25p or as high as £100 each spin at Mr. Green. Vikings Go Wild paytable values are listed in coins only and remain fixed despite changes in Bet. When set to display Wins in cash, the slot auto-calculates wins to currency by multiplying the Coin Win x Coin Value. The Cash Win is then displayed in the Win window.
Vikings Go Wild features 12 symbols that reflect the Viking adventure theme. The 4 special symbols include a Free Spin Viking Ship, Wild, Sticky Wild and Treasure Chest. The Wilds can replace any regular symbol, the Ship triggers Free Spins and the Treasure Chest awards a special prize. The 8 Vikings Go Wild regular symbols, listed in order of highest to lowest value, include 4 Vikings: Blue, Red, Green, Purple, and 4 Coins: Gold, Silver, Bronze and Green.
Gameplay is left to right only, so get 3+ symbols starting from reel 1 to win. For a single payline profit, get 3+ or the Blue or Red Viking, 4+ of the Silver Coin-Blue Viking or 5+ of anything. Vikings Go Wild allows multiple wins on different Lines to be added together in the Total Win. Get up to 25 combos in one spin!
The highest paying symbol of the slot is the Blue Viking symbol which shows a coin value of (250, 100, 30) giving the Main Game the potential to award up to 10x the Bet per Line. Taking into account the fact that there could be wins along all 25 Lines at once, the Main Game has the potential to award up to 250x the Bet per spin.
Vikings Go Wild’s Autoplay ranges from 10-infinity (common amongst Yggdrasil online slots). Advanced options allow players to set it to stop automatically if cash increases/decreases by a set amount, on a set minimum win or Free Spin activation. Stop reels faster by hitting spin during Autoplay or regular play.
Vikings Go Wild online slot settings allow adjustment of sound effects/background music, set spacebar to spin and adjust spin speed.
Vikings Go Wild Bonus Features
Free Spin Mode with Sticky Wilds: Spin 3+ Free Spin symbols to trigger a number of Free Spins relative to the number of symbols that activated it. Spin 3 Free Spin symbols to get 8 Free Spins, 4 for 16, or 5 for 24 Free Spins. Prepare to witness an epic battle between the Viking symbols and the monster. The monster becomes a Sticky Wild and replaces the Viking that defeated it. If the Viking loses, there is no penalty. Unfortunately, Free Spins cannot be retriggered during Free Spin Mode. Win up to 6,000x your Bet with the activation of 24 Free Spins.
Treasure Chest Random Prize: The Treasure Chest symbol appears on reel 5 to randomly award 8-12 Free Spins, a Coin Prize of 50-1,000 or a Wild Reel (any of reels 1-4). Treasure Chests can potentially award a small Jackpot of 40x the Bet with a win of the 1,000 Coin Prize. That amounts to a Cash Win of £4,000 for a Bet selection of £100.

Go Wild for Cash
Vikings Go Wild is a decent play with the potential to award big cash wins through both the Main Game and the Free Spins & Treasure Chest Features. While testing the demo, we won about 3 of 10 spins or so. A third of those were profitable, and half included multiple wins along differing Lines. The Treasure Chest activated 2x in 100 spins and awarded Coin Prizes of 175 and 100. Free Spins Mode activated once. We got up to 7 Sticky Wilds and finished with 2,681 coins (107x our Bet). Overall, we came out ahead.
If slots which offer Treasure Chest prizes and Free Spin features are what you like, take a look at Yggdrasil’s recently released Monkey King. Like most other Yggdrasil slots, both Monkey King and Vikings Go Wild have big win potential, engaging Features and excellent graphics.
