Two of the industry’s powerful game developers are releasing their new video slots as soon as this week. Yggdrasil Gaming is coming out with its new Norse mythology themed Vikings Go Berzerk slot, while the Stockholm-based ELK Studios is presenting its Christmassy Taco Brothers sequel called Taco Brothers Saving Christmas.
About Yggdrasil Gaming’s Vikings Go Berzerk Slot
Yggdrasil’s new slot, Vikings Go Berzerk, is based on the blockbusting Vikings Go Wild slot, which went online in August 2015, featuring the same core mechanics but a set of new mad features, like free spins, Extra Wilds, Wild Reels and the Berzerk mode. The game is available in HTML5, along with the studio’s unique marketing features like BOOST™ and BRAG, which allows players to post replays of their big wins on social channels or share them with their fellow players.
Here’s what product Owner for Games at Yggdrasil Gaming, Jonas Strandman had to say about the fresh game that’s being launched across the casinos this week: “Vikings Go Wild was a phenomenal success, so we wanted to continue their story. Vikings Go Berzerk takes things up a gear, and features the most mesmerizing graphics we have ever produced.”
“By sticking to the same maths model, we know players will enjoy the flow of the game, with new features adding to the excitement. Sequels tend to boost the performance of prequels, so we are expecting to see both titles receive some major traffic in the coming months.”
Taco Brothers Saving Christmas Slot Features
Meanwhile, Swedish ELK Studios is excited to release the Christmas version of their highly successful Taco Brothers slot. Having one of their slots – Poltava — nominated for this year’s EGR’s Best Game of the Year award, this small but ambitious company doesn’t fail to surprise.
Like the rest of the ELK Studio’s games, Taco Brothers Saving Christmas has been designed with the mobile-first mindset, making it accessible from practically any device. It features a jackpot of 150,000 coins, which can be won on its 5 festive reels and the 243 Ways engine.
The action still happens in the beautiful village of Santa Maria, in Mexico, along with the three Taco Brothers: Paso, Pepe and Pico. This time, however, the cacti are decorated with Christmas lights and instead of dust it’s the snowflakes that set the vibe.
That said, players will still enjoy a high variance gameplay, boosted with Wild re-spins and bonus games, including free spins and multipliers. Finally, Taco Brothers Saving Christmas also features the studio’s unique betting features, designed for all types of players and betting strategies. With that in mind, the game should be available for play from 23rd November.
