Yak, Yeti and Roll Review

Released December 2018

The Yak, Yeti and Roll slots game is produced by BetSoft. BetSoft are one of the smaller slot development companies on the market at the moment and have recently started offering their own casino platform. The company was founded in 2006, entering the slots market 4 years later. Betsoft do publish the Return to Player (RTP)/House Edge information for their slots games within the game help files. As such we know that the house edge for Yak, Yeti and Roll is 4.07%.

The Yak, Yeti and Roll game has 5 reels and each reel is 3 symbols high. This game uses 40 paylines, playing from left to right.

Special Symbols

Wild – The “Yeti” symbol is Wild, substituting for all symbols other than Scatters. Wilds only occur on reels 2, 3 and 4.

Scatters –The “Eskimo” symbol is the game’s Scatter symbol, paying out in combinations of 2 to 5 symbols anywhere on the reels, independent of paylines.

Bonus Features

Cascades – After a winning combination, the symbols that have formed that payline will disappear and new symbols will drop into place, giving you another chance to win on a single spin. These cascades can continue for a maximum of 17 wins.

Yak, Yeti and Roll Bonus Trail – At the bottom left-hand corner of the screen you will see Yak, Yeti and Roll on their snow mobile crushing icons that move along the bottom of the screen. The icons move to the left and under the wheels of the snow mobile when you manage a successful cascade. Each icon represents either free spins, multipliers or cash wins. The green icons are the cash wins, the browny yellow icons are the free spins, the red icons are cascade multipliers and the blue icons are free spin multipliers.

Multiple cascades will allow free spins and multipliers to build on top of each other, to make for bigger wins. The quality of the icons will improve as the cascades continue. If you can make it all the way to 17 cascades in a row then you will be awarded a win that is 200x your initial bet.

Free Spins – If you trigger Free Spins by crushing a brown coloured icon during a successful cascade then you will be awarded that number of Free Spins. During the Free Spins feature the same rules will apply as during the base game.

Double Up – After any win you can risk what you have earned by pressing the Double Up button. You bet 50% of your winnings and will win based on the toss of a coin. You can attempt to double up as often as you like.

Buy Feature – You can skip straight to the Free Spins feature and be awarded 18 free spins if you are willing to spend cash on the “Buy Feature”. The amount you will have to spend is displayed on the button.

Closing Thoughts

Yak, Yeti and Roll is a great looking game that sees you navigate your way through the artic wastes of the tundra. The characters are well-designed and add a sense of narrative to the game, making the whole experience feel relatively immersive. There aren’t a huge number of features, however, the central feature does play a huge part in the game. The inclusion of cascades is also a nice touch meaning there is something going on with just about every spin. The buy now feature is appearing more and more in slots games and as such you need to be prepared to decide if doing so is worth the gamble. For what it is worth, the RTP will increase if you buy the feature, but you do have to spend big to trigger it. The original RTP is a little lower than we would have wanted, and the game itself is very confusing at times, with a lot going at just about all times. Those two criticisms mean that Yak, Yeti and Roll won’t earn 10 from us but still a very respectable score in the end.
