Review of Vikings Go Wild
For a casino game developer called Yggdrasil, it was of course only a matter of time before the launch of a slot with a viking theme would come. So here it is. It is called Vikings Go Wild, and it takes us out on the sea in the middle of a storm. There is something lurking under the surface of the sea and the question is whether the three vikings can defend our dragon decorated ship or not.
The whole plot is simple, but well integrated into the gameplay. The main game is just an ordinary trip over the ocean for these three tough vikings. When the bonus round kicks in, the apparent peace is broken by giant tentacles that try to grab and drag the ship filled with crew and all, down into the depth of the sea.
The result is quite good, even if it isn’t exactly a innovative in plot, nor functions. We recommend you try the sequel Vikings Go Berzerk instead, which is everything Vikings Go Wild was aiming for, and more!

This is how you play Vikings Go Wild
Yggdrasil's slot Vikings Go Wild is played over five reels and four rows. The prizes are won when you get two or more identical symbols on one of the 25 fixed paylines, playing from left towards right. The coin value can be adjusted from a minimum bet of £0.25 to a maximum bet of £100.
The main game feels a bit bland and boring compared to the bonus game where it quite honestly feels like there is too much going on. This gives us a feeling that the game is slightly out of balance and perhaps even not completed. If Yggdrasil had put more action in the main game, this could really have turned out to be a killer slot.

Viking Go Wild symbols
The game has a total of 11 symbols. Four of the most valuable of those is represented by the ships crew. These are the followed by coins, that in descending order according to the value are: gold, silver, bronze and copper. The crew consists of a long haired and bearded savage looking viking whose symbol is the most valuable. He is followed by the bald and slightly more corpulent bearded viking. This one again is followed by the grey-haired older viking, who doesn’t seem to have shaved in a decade or so. And in true patriarchal spirit, the only female viking is the least valuable of the crew.
These are followed by the three special symbols:
- Free spins
- Treasure chest
The wild symbol works like a joker and will replace all symbols, apart from free spins or treasure chest. On the reel on the far right is where the treasure chest might appear. The chest may reward you with one of two prizes:
It could be a cash prize of 1000 coins or you can win between 8-12 free spins. Free spins is also the last of the special symbols and it is symbolized by a viking ship. Three of these will give you 8 free spins, four will give you 16 and five give you a total of 24 free spins.
