If there's one thing you can't say about Yggdrasil Gaming's Vikings Go to Hell slot, it's that it lacks personality. The game is brooding, giving players a dark look and feel that mixes well with the old Norse lifestyle that dominated Europe about 1200 years ago. This is one dark slot, but it delivers with it a ton of fun features, and should be right up the alley of someone who enjoys all things viking.
Vikings Go to Hell is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot that is set on the shores of a rocky land full of mystery. The game has a lot of stone-faced edges to it, and players have their own battle squad of warriors. Game symbols include bows and arrows, axes, hammers, swords, a female warrior, grey bearded warrior, bald warrior, and red bearded warrior.
The game's features are pretty rich, and include free spins, wilds, a pick'em game, stacked symbols, and sticky wilds. These all combine to give Vikings Go to Hell a posted return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.1%, which is the average number we typically see from Yggdrasil slots. One interesting aspect of the feature set is the ability to build rage in the warriors, which sees you fighting demons and always winning when the rage meter is full.
Yggdrasil designed Vikings Go to Hell with both desktop and mobile devices in mind. Playing this on my laptop seemed to bog my system down a bit, even though it shouldn't. I wasn't running anything else, so I know that the issue was somewhere in the browser with this game. With that said, the mobile version of the game played just fine, and was easy to navigate, even with my fat fingers.
When compared to a lot of other Yggdrasil slots, Vikings Go to Hell is a very dark game. I found the theme to be something that isn't really appealing to me, but I know there are segments of punters out there that will definitely enjoy the theme. This game certainly is advanced well past the original titles that Yggdrasil put out, and while it's not my cup of tea, it's still a lot better than those original games.
If you're a fan of old Norse history and don't mind going to hell to duke it out with demons for cash prizes, then Vikings Go to Hell is probably a great game for you. If the theme doesn't appeal to you, I'd recommend you check out another great Yggdrasil slot like Easter Island.
