We always assumed that an ascent to the summit of Everest would be quite lonely and hostile. It doesn't appear to be the case in the eyes of Four Leaf Gaming as there are myriad ways to keep yourself entertained on the way to the top.
Climbing & Avalanche Wilds
Wild symbols are open for everyone to experience and they come in two forms during this game. The first is a Climbing Wild and these are fairly regular except that any win involving one of these will increase the reel height by 2 or 3 rows.
Avalanche Wilds will only appear at the top of a reel and while acting as a regular substitute, they will also begin to cascade downwards and increase their multiplier value depending on the number of steps they fall. They can also remove an entire row if there are no winning symbols below.
Entry to the free spins game can come in various ways thanks to all the gizmos and gadgets that have been added to this slot.
Firstly, you can wait to land 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols to receive 10, 12 or 14 free spins.
Secondly, as the rows begin to grow during the base game and reach 10 high, you will also make your way there.
Finally, there is the Super Spinner that can be accessed to head straight to the bonus if you collect enough gold coins or are able to make a direct bonus purchase.
Free spins are played on the 5x10 reelset and spins can be retriggered by landing 3 more scatter symbols. An Avalanche Wild turns up at the top of a reel with every spin and increases the multiplier value for the entire reel and does not reset between spins.
Some players may be able to gamble all of some of their free spins to try and obtain more using the Bonus Booster wheel but bear in mind that you could end up losing the lot.
You might also be able to enjoy the Fortune Maker feature which can trigger after a certain amount of winnings has been accrued during the free spins game. This is a Plinko-style game that sees a ball falling into winning or losing carts to either produce bigger prizes or return you to the base game with no winnings at all.
The Super Spinner is the large bonus wheel that you see hiding behind a rock to the side of the reels. Some players can trigger this manually and purchase a spin while others can use the gold coins they collect throughout the game to subsidise the cost of a spin. It will take a long time to accrue enough coins to have a stab at this without adding your own cash to the sale price!
The Nitro Spins option increases your chances of seeing exciting features by using your gold coins. This can be accessed through the Game & Fortune Area—as with the other feature buy-ins.
