Bork the Berserker Slot Review
Meet one more unique 5-reel solution from Thunderkick that amuses the public with quick-witted slot themes, plots and designs. This time, the software company has based the game on the myths and folklore of Scandinavia, the region they are from. The brave Bork goes to the Nordic hell for treasure hunting – he will be helped by expanding wilds and bonus symbols that award a maximum of 20 free spins. The slot is poised to be a favorite for fans of monster and myth themes as well as for those who prefer low betting.
Bork is so courageous that he sets out to Hell (not the same-name village in Norway that gave rise to a pun “Hell frozen over”). In the afterworld the legendary warrior will fight all sorts of demons and monsters – all of them are included into the symbol set. There are also three pictogram symbols depicting with a few sketchy lines and dots what looks like a house, a horseshoe and some unidentifiable thing. Anyway, creepy monsters are higher-valued symbols that award up to x25 for five of a kind. Pictograms are of a lower value – they pay out x4 a total bet at the maximum. The most profitable symbol is a scared girl pursued by a violet-skinned monster that awards x50 a total bet. Note that ordinary play cards the most software use have gone out of the window in this slot.
Bet limits are typical for a Thunderkick’s five-reel game. Clicking a casino chip button opens a page with 14 available bet sizes from $0.10 to $100 per spin. No other bet adjustment opportunities are offered. That is why the winning values above are linked to a total bet, not a line bet. In view of the win sizes given above, the max cash win is equal to $5000.
Autospin settings are available in the slot. On pushing a related button you will be offered to choose the number of game rounds to be spun automatically (5 to 5000) and check/uncheck a Stop On Feature Won box.
Bork himself is a wild symbol with some lucrative properties. It substitutes for other symbols, save for a bonus symbol, and stretches out vertically to cover the whole three positions on the reel. Though very useful, the expanding wild as used in the slot has a positional limitation of being bound to the central reel only.
The slot would not have been that attractive without an array of free games that become active if you land three or more bonus symbols displaying a vampire-looking creature holding out his hands. The starting point for the bonus is 10 free spins as soon as three scatters are hit. Four and five scatters give 15 and 20 spins respectively. Free spins offer another undeniable source of big wins. In base game expanding wilds are on reel 3 only, but in the bonus part of the game, all free spins see the expanding wilds on reels 2, 3 and 4. And this will undoubtedly lead to very good profit.
Bork the Berserker is for those who prefer quirky slots with good features. Here you will find expanding wilds active on three reels, and free spins. The top win is $5000.
