Head off on an epic Everest adventure without leaving home! 9k Yeti is a new offering from Yggdrasil Gaming together with independent developer 4theplayer, incorporating free spins and a unique snowstorm feature.
It’s played on six reels over four rows, and you’ll love the truly gorgeous design of this slot, complete with the majestic Himalaya in the background. It’s inspired by the elusive Yeti, or ‘Incredible Snowman’ said to dwell on the slopes of the world’s highest mountain. Will you reach peak playing performance?
If so, you could find yourself winning more than 9,000 times your stake in 9k Yeti. What’s more, if you enjoy gaming on the go, it’s playable across a range of devices.
How to play
With stakes from 10p to £25 a spin available, this game was released in November 2019 and suits all budgets and attitudes to risk. Create winning combos by landing matching icons on neighbouring reels, beginning from Reel 1.
The angry Yeti is the game’s highest-paying icon – land up to six on a Payline for rewards of nearly 9x stake. Medium-value symbols include a climber, Sherpa and items of climbing kit such as an ice pick, rope and a tent.
You’ll also find the A, K, Q, J and 10 card icons among the lower-paying symbols.
9k Yeti Special Features
Everest itself is the Wild, replacing all icons apart from the footprint Scatter symbol.
Trigger this on landing a minimum of three footprint Scatters with a single spin. Land three, four, five or six Scatters to win eight, 15, 40 or 88 free spins respectively.
Bagging the sane number of Scatters during the feature gives you eight, 15 or as many as 50 fresh spins. Retrigger the round multiple times, and enjoy up to a maximum total of 880 free spins.
Snowstorm Bonus Feature
Trigger this when you get a Yeti and Mount Everest on the same free spin but no winning combination. The storm swirls over the reels, whipping up at least one Yeti and one footprint Wild before they’re shuffled with other symbols. A win is guaranteed, effectively converting a losing spin into a nice little earner.
Big Reel Portrait Mode
This isn’t a bonus feature, but when you decide to play in this mode on a smartphone, reels are stacked to take up 60% of your screen, compared with the 20% which has been the norm until now. This seriously enhances your playing experience and is a nice feature in 9k Yeti.
Return to Player (RTP)
RTP or Return to Player in 9k Yeti is a little above average, at 97%. However, the high volatility of this game does also mean you may have some fairly lengthy gaps between the bigger wins.
The design is definitely one of the most appealing aspects of this game, alongside its innovative theme. 9k Yeti is also potentially highly lucrative.
One reviewer said they’d like to see another couple of further bonus features here, but you should find enough here to retain your interest. And there’s an arcade-game feel here you should enjoy, too.
So grab a pick-axe and let the quest to find the Yeti begin!
