9K Yeti slot review (Yggdrasil)
We learnt at school that Mount Everest, with a height of 8,848 metres, is the highest mountain on earth
We’ve never tried to climb it before and never will: we already get scared of heights (and short of breath) when we climb two flights of stairs.
But high in the mountains, far above the eternal snowline, is where the Yetis live. And they’re not only good at hiding, but they are also scary and, more importantly, generate some sky-high wins.
It is possible to bag wins up to just over 9,000x the bet. This explains the name 9K Yeti of the game provider 4ThePlayer. Or is it because Mount Everest is almost 9,000 meters high?
In any case, 4ThePlayer is a studio that aims to get slots enthusiast to play their video slots. They do this with the help of the Yggdrasil game platform.
The setting of 9K Yeti is on top of the imposing mountain, where mountaineers, sherpa’s and terrible snowmen take turns in forming massive payouts.
What is the theoretical RTP, the variance and the maximum win of the 9k Yeti Slot?
The theoretical payout percentage is excellent: 97%.
With an RTP like that, it is one of the best-paying slots in the world.
The variance is medium to high. Yggdrasil classifies the volatility as “high” and gives it a score of “99”. This corresponds to medium-high variance.
The maximum win amounts to 9,012x the bet. Chances of getting this win are extremely marginal though.
We expect that most top wins are in the 500x to 1,000x the bet range.
Gameplay and features of the 9k Yeti slot
9K Yeti has 6 reels with 4 symbols per reel. The slot works according to the win all ways mechanism. There are 4,096 ways to win (calculated as 4x4x4x4x4x4).
When playing this slot on a mobile device, you can choose to play in the Big Reel Portrait Mode: this way a larger part of the screen is used.
The minimum bet is a $€ 0.10 per spin and that goes up to $€ 25 per spin.
Symbols and payouts
As expected, the Yeti symbol is the most lucrative premium symbol. If you get a 6-of-a-kind, you gain a win of 8.8x the total bet. The Yeti symbols can appear in stacks and, if you manage to (almost) fill the entire screen, you get 1,024 winning combinations of 6-of-a-kind of Yetis, yielding the maximum win of 9,012x the total bet.
The mountaineers and sherpas are the other premium symbols and popular and useful. You get a payout of 6x the bet if you manage to spin six identical symbols on a payline.
You can identify the wild symbol by a picture of the famous Mount Everest. It replaces all symbols except the scatters.
Free Spins Bonus with Snowstorm Feature
Three or more scatters (the footsteps) give you instant access to the free spins bonus. On average, this happens once every 142 spins.
Depending on the number of scatters (between 3 and 6) you get a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 88 free spins.
The most appealing feature, active in the free spins is the so-called “Snowstorm Feature”.
This feature is activated, if you don’t get a winning combination, but do get the wild symbol and the Yeti symbol.
Now, the symbols on the reels are shuffled. It is done, in such a way that (in the end) you get a winning combination.
It is also possible to retrigger the free spins if you get at least 3 scatter symbols (up to 6 scatter symbols). If you do, you activate another 5 to 50 free spins.
If you are on a roll, you can get up to 880 (!) free spins. We suspect that this does not happen too often. If you do, get yourself a shower, breakfast and go shopping in the meantime. It will take a long, long while until your free spins session has ended in that case!
As the bonus frequency is pretty high, you will soon notice that the free spins wins are modest (in most cases). Besides, it is possible to get sizeable wins in the base game, leaving insufficient room for the real massive payouts in the free spins.
Our verdict on the 9K Yeti slot?
9K Yeti is a funny and beautifully crafted slot. Animations and sounds are top-notch. Especially the Yeti’s look fabulous (and scary), when these are part of a winning combination.
Unfortunately, the slot misses depth and substance, as the number of features is limited (actually only the Snowstorm feature).
It’s typically a slot that you enjoy playing for half an hour until you have won one or two bonus features. Then you will probably think: fun but let’s do something else now.
The developer of this slot, 4ThePlayer, has the potential to deliver. We are looking forward to upcoming releases from this London-based online casino games maker.
In this slot, winning prizes of 500x to 1,000x the bet is possible. The dream of bagging a win of 9,012x the bet is also there! Not bad at all.
3.5 out of 5 stars.
