Hall Of The Mountain King slot is a new game based on the popular piece by Grieg which offers a more unusual Free Spins Bonus along with some other features that you may enjoy. It’s nice to see them do something original and I suggest you keep reading to find out more.
Firstly, let’s talk about the design. There’s a really nice display on this slot. The colours are nice, the graphics are great and I like the background too, although some more animation here would be a nice extra touch. There are 5 reels and 3 rows offering 20 paylines in total. As with almost every other slot out there, you just need to get a win along one of these from left to right to win a cash reward. You do this using the base symbols which are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
There’s a Wild symbol as well which pays out the same as the Red Troll and will substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the Scatter symbol.
Multiplier Meter. You’ll notice on the side of the reels some slots which can contain multipliers. Every Wild symbol that appears activate a multiplier, with all wins multiplied by the highest multiplier. These can increase during the Free Spins Bonus up to a maximum of 15x.
Bonus Meter. The Bonus Meter is available during the Free Spins Bonus at stages 1 and 2. In stage 1 it contained Symbol Upgrade blocks, while stage 2 offers whirling Wild blocks.
Free Spins Bonus. To trigger this you need 3 Scatter symbols appearing at the same time. There are 3 stages to the Bonus. The first, as I mentioned, offers symbol upgrades, while stage 2 offers Whirling Wilds and stage 3 is the Whirling Wild Drop. So how do these work? The symbol upgrade blocks, when smashed, will remove the corresponding low value symbol from the reels, replacing it instead with the high value symbol. Once you’ve destroyed the top block, you’ll move on to stage 2. In order to destroy a block, you must get a win and the King will then smash the indicated block, which starts at the bottom. At random, the King will also smash the bottom multiplier block, increasing the multipliers. At stage 2, when you destroy a block, the Whirling Wild symbols inside will be collected above the reels, with a maximum of 6 available. Once again, you’ll move on to the next stage after you destroy the top block. In the final stage, stage 3, all of the Whirling Wilds you collected will drop into random positions and turn into Wild symbols, as you probably guessed. This stage ends after 3 spins, when all of the symbols have dropped onto the reels. This will end the Bonus.
Hall Of The Mountain King slot from Quickspin is a good-looking slot with nice graphics and an interesting Free Spins Bonus. Many Bonuses these days are very similar and also quite boring, but I applaud Quickspin for doing something original. It incorporates various elements into it like extra Wilds and removal of low value symbols, making it quite profitable most of the time and also fun. The meters also work well to keep the base game interesting. All in all, I really like this new slot. It has a lot of different features with a good theme and design and some nice rewards too.
