How do you fancy your chances in a battle with a yeti? It’s quite a random scenario, however Thunderkick seem to believe this theme is worthy of its own slot game. Introducing Yeti Battle of Greenhat Peak; their latest online and mobile slot, set in yeti territory (the Himalayas?) and featuring wild attack spins and a sticky wild bonus game. The reels appear in 5×3 format with 11 fixed paylines. The theme, bizarre as it may be, is certainly entertaining enough!
The highest value symbol is the wild, which also substitutes all other symbols except for the bonus. Then there’s the distinctive white yeti, a watermelon, a lemon and some cherries, with playing card symbols as the low win icons. The bonus symbol is a special carrot (we aren’t quite sure how all this fruit and veg fits in – perhaps the yeti has a very healthy diet? We then realised it’s probably best not to ask too many theme-related questions and to just go with it). It’s the special carrot bonus that you really want, for 2 of them will trigger the Wild Attack feature, while 3 or more will trigger the free spins bonus.
Wild Attack Feature
Landing 2 or more carrot bonuses will activate Wild Attack. This occurs quite frequently, much to our delight, as a respin occurs with between 1 and 3 sticky wild symbols randomly placed on the reels. Also, any wild not featuring in a winning combination will become sticky. This can give you a great little win boost.
Free Spins Bonus
Three, four and five bonuses landing on the reels will trigger 10, 15 and 20 free spins respectively. As the reels spin, every 3 bonus symbols appearing award an extra random sticky wild; these remain on the reels until the end of the game and grants an additional 2 free spins until the wild attack meter (underneath the reels) is filled. A full meter will grant an extra 5 spins; thus giving a possible total of 31 free spins in Yeti Battle of Greenhat Peak!
Also, any wilds that land in the bonus game will stick in place either for the remainder of the game or until it helps to create a winning combination.
The Wild Attack feature and free spins bonus are what you’re really after in this bemusing slot game. The wild attack is a nice filler to keep you going until that bonus game hits. As a result, Yeti Battle is an enjoyable game, even if the theme is a little unusual – but hey, variety is the spice of life!
