Hall of the Mountain King Slot Review
Based on Edvard Grieg’s famous classical piece, Hall of the Mountain King is Quickspin’s latest five-reel, 20-payline video slot that will take you in front of the cave where the King of Trolls lives. Rumour has it that the King hides vast riches in his caves and it will be up to you to discover the treasure. Spin the reels and enjoy stacked Wilds, multipliers and a Free Spins feature that offers 3 different stages. Visually impressive, the 2019 release is playable from £0.20 per spin and offers a maximum possible payout of 7,326 times the bet.
You probably know the story about Trolls, that they can turn into stone if they stay out on the sun. That is probably why the reels of the Quickspin title are made from stone and low-paying playing card symbols are also carved into stone. There is the King of Trolls, which is the highest-paying regular symbol. He is accompanied by two female Trolls, and two Warrior Trolls, which are probably his personal guards. The Wild symbol tends to land in stacks and substitutes for all regular symbols. The King’s Hammer is the Scatter that triggers the Free Spins feature.
The rules of the game are quite easy and the Trolls will give you no problems as you spin the reels. The 2019 release features a standard 5×3 reel grid and benefits from 20 fixed paylines, which pay left to right, beginning from the far left reel. To start winning payouts, gamers need to land at least three matching symbols on a payline. Betting starts at £0.20 and the biggest possible wager is set at £100 per single spin. The control panel is pretty standard, offering all the usual options, like, Bet, Fast Forward, Spin and the Paytables.
Wilds tend to land in stacks and they are important for the multiplier meter placed on the left side of the screen. Land 1-5 Wilds to increase the win multiplier. At least 1 Wild needs to be a part of the winning combo in order for the multipliers to be activated.
Land three Hammer Scatters on three central reels and you will trigger the Free Spins feature with three stages. In Stage 1, you get the Symbol Upgrade feature, where the Troll King swings his Hammer to break one of the blocks in the upgrade meter and removes low-paying symbols every time you land a winning combination. The Troll King can also break the multiplier meter to boost the multiplier, which can go up to 15x during free spins. Stage 2 is triggered when the top block is smashed and comes with the Whirling Wilds feature. Whirling Wilds from the block are collected and up to 6 Wilds can be taken. Also, the multiplier in this stage can go up to 15x. Smash the top block in Stage 2 and you will reach the final stage – Whirling Wild Drop. All collected Wilds are dropped on the reels during three freebies.
All of you who dare to enter the cave and visit the King of Trolls can win up to 7, 326 times the bet in a single spin. The Free Spins feature is where you can expect tasty wins, thanks to Symbol Upgrade, multiplier that can go up to 15x and Whirling Wilds. The Troll King pays the most, offering 40 times the bet for five of a kind. Hall of the Mountain King’s RTP is 96.29%.
