9k Yeti is a 6 reel, 4,096 ways to win slot from 4ThePlayer. Playable from 10p to £25 per spin on desktop, mobile and tablet devices, this epic adventure game comes with a Free Spins feature where you can win up to 880 free spins – there’s also a Snowstorm feature where losing free spins are swept around to give you a win. It’s highly volatile too!
9k Yeti: Demo
Expedition to Mount Everest
I must say that 9k Yeti is a beautifully designed slot – with Mount Everest in the background, symbols include A, K, Q, J and 10 royals as well as climbing ropes, ice axes, tents, Sherpas and mountain climbers. Then you have the Yeti symbol which is the most lucrative – 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 on a payline will reward you with 1, 4, 5, 7 or 8.8 times your stake.
The Mount Everest symbol is the wild – it substitutes for all symbols bar the footprint scatter. Winning formations are created by getting matching symbols on adjacent reels starting from reel 1 (i.e. on reels 1, 2, 3 and 4).
Big Reel Portrait Mode
The good thing about new slot providers/developers is that you can take advantage of modern technologies to take their slots to the next level. 4ThePlayer offers the Big Reel Portrait Mode – when playing 9k Yeti on your smartphone device, you can opt for classic mode or Big Reel Portrait Mode. The latter sees the reels stacked to occupy 60% of the screen – this leads to a much better playing experience.
Snowstorm Free Spins Bonus feature
9k Yeti comes with a Snowstorm Free Spins Bonus feature – this is played when you get 3 or more footprint scatters on any reels. 3, 4, 5 or 6 footprint scatters will reward you with 8, 15, 40 or 88 free spins respectively. During the feature, you can land 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters to give you 5, 8, 15 or 50 additional free spins – in fact, you can retrigger the feature various times for a maximum of 880 free spins!
During the free spins, look out for the Yeti symbol and the Mount Everest wild symbol appearing on the reels on the same free spin. When this happens and you don’t get a winning combination, the Snowstorm feature is triggered. A snow storm will lift 1 or more Yeti and wild symbols and shuffle them with other symbols to guaranteed you a winning outcome. Basically, a losing free spin will change into a winning one.
Highly volatile – 9,012 x stake max win
9k Yeti is a great first slot from 4ThePlayer – in fact, it’s a superb slot by anyone’s standards. Beautifully designed, the 2 bonus features are good. I do like the fact you can retrigger the Snowstorm Free Spins Bonus feature multiple times for a huge number of potential free spins.
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.
Overall, the 9k Yeti slot is an engaging and brilliant first effort from 4ThePlayer – it looks great (especially in portrait mode on smartphone devices) and has the potential for some mountainous ways.
