9k Yeti is a nice change when it comes to themes. In the spirit of heading up to Mount Everest, it’s a game based on adventure. Your background gives you the feeling that you’re high in the mountains. There are prayer flags in the scene and peaks of snow-capped mountains.
Do be wary that the game is high volatility but with that, it means there’s big potential for some high winnings. It helps that the RTP is higher than average. There are a lot of ways to win as well, 4,096 in total.
There are a few high paying symbols that work well with the theme of the game. An adventurous trek up to the famous Mount Everest. Of course you are going to have Sherpas that help the climbers reach their destination. There are symbols that you would of course need to go on such a quest. This includes: Ropes for climbing, Ice picks, Tents.
The Yeti is your meal ticket, being worth the most of any of the symbols. If he shows up on reels 2 to 6 (on a pay line), you can get some big gains. Wins from 1 – x8.8 your stake.
There is also a symbol of Mountain Everest that acts as your wild.
- Free Spins
Yes, there is a fantastic relationship to free spins in 9k Yeti. If you get at least three scatters on reels 3 – 6, you can get at least 8 free spins. Get this though, you have the potential of winning, 15, 40 or even 88 spins. If you have more scatters land on the reels, you can get additional free spins on top of your already generous spins. They can be anywhere from 5 – 50 extra spins. Retriggers are totally possible too, potentially leading to a whopping 880 spins. I mean, that’s unheard of.
While you’re in the free spin feature if the Yeti and Mount Everest show up at the same time, you trigger a snowstorm. This makes sense as let’s face it, snowstorms are what causes most people to have to give up their trek to the top of Everest. Anyway, the feature during the snowstorm will lift your Yeti or Everest symbols and switch them around with other symbols. This is going to get you a certain win.
- Mount Everest Symbol
The symbol of the mountain represents your wild in 9k Yeti. It does what wilds do and subs out symbols (minus the scatter, which is a Yeti footprint). To win, combinations need to be on reels 1 -4).
This Everest expedition is a volatile one though – expect the average win in the free spins to be just over 40 times your stake. However, if you get lucky, you could win a whopping 9,012 times your stake on every spin or free spin! 9k Yeti also has a Return to Player % (RTP) of 97% which is good.
Lots of potential in this game for some avalanche sized wins. Great theme and a cool option for those who are playing on your phones. You can play 9k Yeti in portrait mode. There is a super high RTP of 97% and with so many ways to win, you’ll likely experience some thrilling moments in this debut for developers 4ThePlayer.
9k Yeti does offer a lot of ways to win but it is also high volatility, which means you stand to lose a lot. With that said, you could also win a lot. The graphics aren’t that sharp sadly so it takes away from the feeling of mystique and adventure that they probably intended for players. If you can look past that though, you’ll enjoy 9k Yeti for the thrill and risk with potential big rewards.
