Wild Symbol – A gold W is your wild symbol and it can land anywhere on the reels. It will substitute for all other symbols except the bonus.
Bonus Symbol – Your bonus symbol in Hall of the Mountain King is a hammer. It will only land on reels 2, 3 and 4. You will need to land x3 or more anywhere on reels 2, 3 and 4 to trigger the bonus spins feature.
Other Symbols – Higher paying symbols in Hall of the Mountain King include the five troll characters. Each one has a different coloured background which matches in some way to the character it houses. Lower paying symbols are the A, K, Q, J and 10 found in playing cards, designed to look like wooden carvings.
Wild Multiplier Feature – Every time a wild symbol drops onto the reels it triggers the wild multiplier! For each wild symbol you land you step up one level on the multiplier, beginning at x1 the win and ending at x5 the win. This is increased during the bonus feature from x11 to x15 the win giving you much bigger wins.
Bonus Spins Feature – Quickspin like to change things up and as such have created a three stage bonus spins feature for Hall of the Mountain King. But first you need to trigger it by landing three or more of the hammer bonus symbol on reels 2, 3 and 4. When you have done this you will begin stage 1 of the bonus round, once stage 1 is complete you move to stage 2 and then to stage 3.
Spins are not awarded in bulk here, rather you will continue to spin the reels until you complete each stage requirement. However, in stage three you do only get x3 spins in that final stage. You may be wondering how you break the required blocks to move through the stages. As the reels spin a reel position will be chosen at random as the bonus block. When the symbols land on the reels this bonus block becomes the one that is smashed at the side of the reels. Once you have completed the required number of blocks you progress to the next level.
The explanation of each stage is below:
- Stage 1 – spins awarded until all low value blocks in the upgrade meter have been demolished. As each low value symbol is smashed a higher value troll symbol will replace it permanently on the reels for the remainder of the round. Once you have broken all of the low value blocks stage 2 will begin,
- Stage 2 – spins continue through stage two until it is completed. To complete this stage, you need to now reach the top of the meter which has now been switched to wild symbols. As you break each block the wilds inside are accumulated ready for stage 3.
- Stage 3 – here you are awarded x3 spins with all of the wild symbols you accumulated in stage 2 added to the reels. These wild symbols are called whirling wilds and will move at random on each of the three spins.
Hall of the Mountain King has a lot to offer players, from a great RTP to a three-stage feature that really pulls you into the game. There are lots of wins to be had in the main game thanks to the wild multiplier, which is always great to see. But what is even better for players is that the bonus game triggers quickly too. Thanks in part to that bonus hammer symbol landing more frequently than you would think. With insanely good graphics and an epic tune playing, it’s easy to see how people get lost in this game.
