The 9K Yeti slots game is produced by Yggdrasil Gaming. Yggdrasil Gaming take their name from Norse mythology where Yggdrasil is a magical tree where dragons lived and Odin sacrificed himself. Yggdrasil Gaming are one of the smaller slot development companies on the market at the moment – primarily focusing on lottery and scratch card game – and do not offer a full casino platform. They lease their games out to casinos using other platforms as a bolt on package. Yggdrasil Gaming publish the Return to Player/House Edge of their slots games within the game help file. The House Edge of 9K Yeti is 3%.
9K Yeti is a 6 reel game that is 4 symbols high. Instead of paylines you form winning combinations of 2 or 3 matching symbols across matching reels.
Wild – The “Everest” symbol is the Wild symbol. Wild symbols substitute for paying symbols.
Free Spins – The Free Spins symbol is the “Footprints”. 3 or more Free Spins symbols on the reels will trigger the feature.
Valuable Symbol – The most valuable symbol in the slot is the Yeti.
Free Spins – 3, 4, 5 or 6 Free Spins symbols will award 8, 15, 40 or 88 Free Spins respectively. During the feature, if you land a Yeti and a Wild symbol on the reels then you are guaranteed a win. Essentially the symbols in a non-winning spin are reshuffled until you have a winning combination. If you land 3, 4, 5 or 6 of the Free Spins symbols during the feature then you will be awarded with 5, 8, 15 or 50 additional Spins respectively.
Big Reel Mode – If you are playing on a mobile you can switch to Big Reel Mode, which will change the shape of the reels from a 6x4 grid to a 4x6 grid, which will allow the screen to fit more comfortably into a smaller screen.
9k Yeti is a far cry from some of the truly spectacular looking slots that we have seen Yggdrasil release in the past. It is another one of their collaborations, which (with the exception of Nikola Tesla’s Incredible Machine) have proved to be a little on the underwhelming side. However, there are a few things that I do like about this slot. You get Free Spins, Wilds and you get a quality additional feature within the Free Spins and the Free Spins can be retriggered. It might not be the level of complex features that we have grown accustomed to but there are still elements to commend. The best part of this slot is the house edge. At 3% you are getting seriously good value for money, which almost forgives how underwhelming the slot is.
