Quickspin Slot Release: Hall of the Mountain King

Quickspin - Hall of the Mountain King

At Vegas Casino, we hate holding back. We try to keep our gaming portfolio rich with options to keep our fine folk contented on our site. As such, we are quick to let you know when new games have landed for your enjoyment. 

May 2019 has seen the release of some fine slot games to this point, but the month is not over yet and another loaded feature has wangled its way onto our site and promises to be one of the best releases of the year. Quickspin has just released their Hall of the Mountain King Slot, which promises to overload your senses for the sheer volume of features offered therein. 

REVIEW 

Who rules the mountains and the high places? Be careful how you answer, as ignorance and naivety will come back to haunt you should you enter the halls of the mountainside without wariness.  

The trolls rule the lofty heights of this mountain, presided over by the volatile Mountain King. Will you follow his lure onto the reels to see if his promise of riches plays out for you, or will you be the next victim of his monstrous ways? 

Take advantage of the overloaded features to find your way to the top in this offering. Available to you are Stacked Wild Multipliers, Symbol Upgrades, and a 3 stage free spin bonus round that incorporated three distinct features to bolster winning ways. Win up to 7,326 times stake on a solitary spin. 

GAME THEME 

This slot offering promotes a fantasy theme, as otherworldly creatures inhabit this screen. Meet the mountain trolls and the treasures they guard, in an adventure slot that may take a while for you to make head or tail of on your own. Once you have read this review and played a round or two, you should be set for success. 

The adventure plays out before a mountainous peak on green grass out in the open wilderness. The blue sky presides over the scene and the chatter of birds provides a tranquil atmosphere in the background. We call this the still before the storm. Roll the reels and a familiar orchestral dirge will preside over the spins. The famous ‘Hall of the Mountain King’ score by Edvard Grieg aptly provides some drama to the gameplay. 

Each symbol and graphic is outstandingly produced to provide a premium quality 3D slot environment that mixes well with its soundtrack to offer the best sensual experience. 

The crisp, ornately designed reels include a host of troll characters to bring wins to your bankroll and to win over your heart at the same time. They include the Troll King, two lady trolls, and a further two male trolls. The lower paying symbols include card deck symbols (10 to A) arranged in Elvin Script to suit the theme. 

Special symbols include a Golden Medallion Wild, which substitutes for all standard symbols to bring wins, and can boost the win multiplier if landed in more than one instance on the reels. The hammer icon is the scatter symbol for the game, which is a key player in triggering the main feature. 

GAMEPLAY 

The game is played over 5 reels with 3 rows. Wins can be made over 20 fixed paylines, where at least 3 or more symbols must land from left to right to present a payout. Be lucky enough to land either 5 wilds over a payline or 5 troll kings, and you will win yourself 800 times your line stake in a flash. 

To get set for gameplay, you will need to set your ideal bet by toggling the arrows up and down next to the bet meter. Once this is done, you can either set the reels in motion by pressing the big ‘Spin’ button manually, or lock in the ‘Auto Play’ feature so the machine can spin the reels for you. 

GAME FEATURES 

This game is loaded with features. Those who enjoy a mass of bonuses in their gameplay should find this slot perfectly suitable. The features include: 

Multiplier Meter 

During the base game and the free spins, you will notice a multiplier meter next to the reels. Whatever multiplier is highlighted at the time of landing a win – that is the multiplier that will be applied to the win and allocated to your bankroll. The multiplier value is dependent on the number of Wilds on the screen at the time of the win. For every wild on the reels, the multiplier will increase by 1x. The maximum multiplier in the game is 15x. 

Free Spin Bonus Round 

3 hammer scatters on the screen at one time will trigger a 3 stage free spin bonus round. Each round offers a unique feature to rake in the wins. 

  • Stage 1: All lower value symbols will be represented on a meter next to the reels. Should a win be made with a smaller icon, the troll king will use his hammer to break the block representing the symbol on the meter and upgrade the symbol to one of the higher playing troll character icons. Should he break the bottom block on the meter, all of the symbols will automatically be upgraded for the feature. Once the top block is broken, you will progress to the next stage of the bonus round. 
  • Stage 2: Here, Whirly Wilds will start to arrive on the reels. Each time they do, they will be accumulated for use in the meter, after a corresponding block is smashed by the hammer. A maximum of 6 Wilds can be collected. Once the top block is once again smashed, you will be able to progress to the next stage. 
  • Stage 3: The Whirly Wilds that you managed to collect in Stage 2 will now be dropped onto the reels over the course of 3 free spins to boost your winning chances. 

VEGAS CASINO ROUNDUP 

Being one of Quickspin’s best and most feature-heavy slots to date, this game can simply not be missed out on. The volatility is rather high, which might make it a little risky for beginners and smaller bank roll players. Those who enjoy high stakes will, however, enjoy this offering.
