Vikings Go Wild
Vikings Go Wild slot game Review
This viking slot was one of the early successes for the creative online casino slot provider Yggdrasil. We are big fans of the possibility to trigger the rewarding Free Spin Bonus not only in one way but two!
This review will guide you through how this is done and what to look out for in this high paced slot.
Free Spins triggers (2!)
Vikings Go Wild has a Free Spin bonus with huge winning potential. It can be triggered two ways, either by getting at least 3 Free Spin symbols or with a bit of luck from the Treasure Chest that you can read more about below.
The Treasure chest is a unique symbol that can only appear on reel 5 and as with any hidden Treasure you won't know its content before it is opened, but rest assured it will always reward you with something sweet!
In the main game it can contain up to 1000 coins or 8-12 Free Spins, whilst if it appears during the Free Spin Bonus it contains a bit fewer Free Spins (2-4) in exchange for the chance of winning the Wild reel feature.
We tend to get a lot of coin wins in the main game, however it seem to be well worth the wait to grind for those juicy Free Spins if the bankroll allows us to.
Free Spin in Vikings Go Wild
This is where you have the chance to run really hot! And if you are keen on wild symbols, this should excite you more than enough.
With the appearance of an original viking boat the Free Spin symbol is a much sought after combination. 3 Free Spin symbol is the minimum requirement for activating the Free Spin bonus which awards you a total of 8 Free Spins. Each extra Free Spin symbol (maximum 5) awards an additional 8 Free Spins, up to a total of 24 Free Spins.
Wilds and Sticky Wilds
Wild substitutes the highest winning combination from left to right, for all the symbols except Free Spins. In the Free Spin Bonus mode each of the four viking symbols will fight an epic battle versus the notorious tentacle sea monster, if a Viking wins it will convert to a Sticky Wild and remain at that position on the reel until all Free Spins have been played.
Unfortunately the tentacle sea monster wins most battles, but a truly blessed slot player will end up with a full win line of Sticky Wilds and cash in one Mega win after another, until all Free Spins have been played!
Wild Reel Feature
Just like it sounds, the wild reel will randomly choose between the 5 reels and switch one of them to all wilds. And yes, it can be found in the Treasure chest more than once if you have the fortune on your side.
Is this slot for me?
This is far from the most volatile of slot machines, however it does for sure have the capacity to run you fairly dry in the base game until you hit a nice feature. We’d recommend you to start off with a secure bet level that you feel comfortable with and grind away for the bonus feature.
Should you be keen on wilds but feel like something a little bit less aggressive, you should check out the online slots Go Banana and Fisticuffs that both are available in the mobile casino as well as on desktop.
