Bork the Berzerker bonus features
Thunderkick is no novice when it comes to making really eye-catching slots so Bork the Berzerker, (very) loosely based on the saga of Beowulf, looks amazing. With a fiery backdrop and engaging, unique character symbols, Bork’s adventure has its own animation style that we are certainly enjoying.
There are three rune-like symbols on the lower value end of the paytable. The more valuable symbols are made up of a menagerie of mystical creatures, with tentacles, gaping jaws and extra heads galore. The most rewarding symbol is the distressed damsel, which awards payouts of x50 the stake for five symbols on a payline.
Bork himself is the Wild symbol, which can only appear on reels 2 to 4. When it forms part of a winning combination, the Wild expands to cover the entire reel it has landed on. It can also substitute for any other symbol except the Bonus Scatter.
Bork the Berzerker Free Spins
The free spins feature is activated when 3 or more Bonus symbols appear, showing a creepy-looking purple fellow who clearly is up to no good.
Three bonus symbols award 10 free spins, four award 15 bonus spins and five award 20 free spins. If further bonus symbols land during free spins, additional rounds will be added to the tally, up to a maximum of 50 extra free spins.
