The Vikings Go Wild!
Vikings Go Wild feature a big golden Wild that will replace all other symbols except the Free Spin Scatter symbol. Landing 3 or more of the ‘Free Spin’ Scatter symbols can award the following:
- 3 Scatter symbols award 8 Free spins
- 4 Scatter symbols award 16 Free spins
- 5 Scatter symbols award 24 Free spins
During the Free spins, each Viking character that lands on the reels is attacked by a sea creature. If they successfully defeat it, they become a Sticky Wild and remain in place during the remaining spins. Unfortunately most of the Vikings will succumb to the beast and get dragged underwater. The only way to retrigger additional Free spins during this round is to land the treasure chest.
The treasure chest appears solely on reel 5 in the base game during Free spins and can award in the following manner:
- If landed during base game, it can award up to 1000 coins or 8 to 12 Free spins
- If landed during Free spins, it can award up to 1000 coins, 2 to 4 Free spins, or the Wild Reel feature, which means the entire reel becomes Wild for the rest of the spins

This is one game that fully deserves its title and proudly carries it over the seas. Vikings Go Wild is an epic adventure that will take you for a wild ride on its stunning long ship and will eventually reward you with numerous bonus features that hold their own against the number of foes you face on sea.
