Yak, yeti and Roll
Yak, Yeti and Roll is a cascading (symbols removed from the reels are replaced by new ones) 20 payline, 5 reel medium variance 3D slot machine from Betsoft that pays a non-progressive jackpot of 92,750 ($92,750) coins on a single spin.
The theme is about an eccentric Inuit (Eskimo) inventor and his faithful yeti companion forging a steady path across the icy Arctic planes. With a 5×3 cascading reel set the developer says that the ‘next win is just a snowdrift away‘, furthermore the slots is build around Betsoft’s proprietary system.
Why play the game? For one, the visuals are a delight and players are pampered with free spins, progressive multipliers, cascading wins, trails of treasures and an all-important ‘Buy Feature’. Yak, Yeti and Roll is playable on mobile phones from $0.20 to $20 per spin, players can also test the mechanics with 1,000 free credits. The RTP or theoretical return to player percentage is 96.54% that’s when the ‘Buy Feature’ is activated while the standard game’s RTP is slightly lower at 95.93%.
Symbols across the reels are the reindeer, husky, igloo, Eskimo (scatter), sledge, gloves and cards from 10 to Ace (low value). Hit 5 Wilds on the reels at the maximum bet you’ll score a neat win of 1,000 coins. Payouts ensue when you land 3 or more combinations, you can double your wins by using the Gamble Feature.
The yeti is the wild, winning combinations are completed by it when it substitutes adjacent symbols bar the Eskimo scatter.
Yak, Yeti and Roll Free Spins
(Free Spin Wins)
The free spins feature can be triggered in the conventional way when 3 or more scatters pitch or you can simply throw a bit of cash at it by clicking on the ‘Buy Feature’. Tired of waiting for the free spins to kick? The ‘Buy Feature’ displays the amount of coins that’s required to unlock it.
Either way you receive 18 free spins that’s replete with 4x multipliers, the potential for successive winnings spins and cascade triggers that transforms small wins into an earth-shaking avalanche! We opted for the ‘Buy Feature’ from the get go it cost us a bit but well worth it because not only did we manage a cool 18 free spins with multipliers, we managed to re-trigger the feature gaining another 22 free spins making it 40 in total.
(Big Win Free Spins)
Yak, Yeti and Roll Smash pleases two crowds successfully: those looking for entertainment and those chasing the big wins wins bolstered by a re-triggerable free spins feature with multipliers, a maximum of 17 cascades offerings wins of 200x your stake and wild substitutions.
Each and every other feature in between coexist beautifully. With two contrasting styles of play, Betsoft maintains a wonderful balance that refines and improves both sides without abandoning the other. If you have the cash to burn flick on the ‘Buy Feature’ but start with a high coin denomination because payouts can be excellent.
How many in-play bonus rounds does the slot have?
With a cascading mechanic it’s fitted with a free spins bonus that is initiated by 3 or more Eskimo scatters. If you don’t have the patience to wait for 3 scatters to pop you can throw a bit of cash at the game by clicking on the ‘Buy Feature’ that triggers anything from 8 to 18 free spins with 4x multipliers.
It is a re-triggerable free spins bonus round meaning extra free spins are gained when 3 or more scatters re-appear. The first time we used the Buy Feature it cost us 250 coins luckily we won 400 coins at the end of the free spins.
