Sneak previewed in February 2018 and officially released on May 24, 2018, Vikings Go To Hell is a casino game made by Yggdrasil Gaming. A slot game based on the historic Vikings and hailed as a blockbuster showcasing the Vikings’ ultimate fight, Vikings Go To Hell is the last game in the Vikings game trilogy. Vikings Go Wild (August 2015) and Vikings Go Berzerk (November 2016) are the first and second games in the serialized Vikings, respectively. Notable rivals are NetEnt’s 2013 game called Vikings and Blueprint Gaming’s Vikings Unleashed Megaways (2018).
Vikings is a term that refers to Scandinavian immigrants who, during the medieval era, were renowned for their trading, yet notorious for pirating. The Vikings Go To Hell’s game play shows the Vikings fighting with demons in a hellish battleground; basically, the players are rewarded after matching three, four, or five weapon-inspired coins and Vikings warriors.
Vikings Go To Hell Game Characteristics
Vikings Go To Hell has a volatility rating of 89, a 5X4 grid, 25 fixed pay lines, and fifteen symbols. The four “high wins” symbols are: a red-haired and wild bearded Viking with a Mohawk hairstyle; a clean-shaved and heavily bearded Viking with an eye patch; an elderly and slightly bearded Viking wearing a hairband; and a female Viking warrior.
The four “low wins” symbols are: a sword coin, a Thor’s hammer coin, a Dane axe coin, and a bow-and-arrows coin. The special symbols are: a blue “good” stone tablet; a golden “epic” stone tablet; a stone tablet-awarding golden treasure chest; two golden substituting Wilds (an ordinary “Wild” and sticky “Wild”); a demon-summoning/sticky wilds-awarding “Free Spin”; and a “Respin”.
The starting page highlights free spins, a demon versus Viking fight scene, and informs about standing a chance to win more than 3000X the stake. The second page half-fills the red-haired Viking’s rage meter as welcome bonus, and challenges players to fill the rest to unlock the seven Berzerk free spins by crushing demons or collecting treasure chests.

The Vikings Go To Hell’s respective payouts for three, four, and five winning combinations: the red-haired Viking pays X30, X75, and X150; the clean-shaved and eye-patched Viking gives X25, X60, and X125; the elderly Viking with a hairband has X20, X50, and X100; and the female Viking pays X15, X50, and X100.
Both the sword coin and Thor’s hammer coin pay X5, X30, and X60, while both the Dane axe and bow-and-arrow coin offer X5, X 25, and X 50. In the main game, the two meter rage-boosting stone tablets offer between seven and sixteen free spins, and from 150 to 1200 coins; in the three free spin modes, these stone tablets award two or three extra free spins and two random wilds. Two, three, four, and five “Free Spin” symbols offer: a re-spin, seven free spins, twelve free spins, and sixteen free spins, respectively.
In the two-level “Free Spins” mode, crushing the Lord of Chains (demon) in level one offers Wilds (two random and automatically Wild Vikings), before promoting players to level two, whereby crushing Lucifir (demon) offers both automatically Wild Vikings and a X3 winnings multiplier.
The Vikings Go To Hell software is good; the tension-filled sound effects and animated graphics relatably illustrate the mythical Valhalla (heavenly place for Vikings killed in action).
