Scandinavia’s boldest band of Vikings are set to return in one of Yggdrasil’s most epic releases to date, Vikings Go To Valhalla.
The narrative revolves around the Vikings protecting the hall of heroes as it is under attack in this sequel. The ruthless snake king Jörmungandr looms near, hellbent on destruction and players are asked to join Gunnar, a fearless Viking, and his army to protect Asgard.
Combatants look to bring great riches to players as they build rage points during base gameplay in order to trigger the highly lucrative berzerker mode.
Each winning combination that features a Viking symbol will see the player collect rage points, and if one of the Viking’s warrior’s meters is filled, then berzerk respins are triggered.
These respins see all Vikings that are present on the reels fight the villainous sea serpent Jörmungandr, every successful attack ensures they become sticky wilds. The Viking that triggered the respins is in berzerk mode and will always win their fight if they are present.
The respins mode ends when no fights are won after a spin. In addition, treasure chests can land on the last reel during all modes of the game, awarding a variety of prizes for lucky players.
Three or more scatter symbols will trigger the free spins, where a respins feature will take place to see what modifiers, such as wilds and wild reels, or a berzerk viking, will be present.
During the bonus, every Viking that lands on the reels will battle the fearsome midgard serpent, and if victorious they will become a sticky wild for the duration of spins.
At the end of a free spins session, the ragnarök wheel is triggered. If the reel stops on a golden segment, players progress to the next round. If players land on golden segments in all six rounds, ragnarök free spins are awarded.
During this mode, all Vikings are berzerk for massive win potential as they take the battle to Jörmungandr. In certain jurisdictions, players can purchase one of three bonus modes, the ragnarök wheel, free spins or ragnarök free spins.
Stuart McCarthy, head of product and programs at Yggdrasil, said: “We’re thrilled to see our band of fearsome warriors return in Vikings Go To Valhalla. The Vikings brand has been a driving force for Yggdrasil’s growth since our inception and they face their biggest battle yet in the end of days. Packing together respins, free spins, interactive features and possible giant wins in the ragnarök free spins, we’re immensely pleased with of the latest instalment of this franchise and hope fans of the Vikings saga are as happy as we are with the title.”
