9k Yeti slot review
We always love seeing new online slots, and particularly Yggdrasil’s new releases. This snowy new slot comes in collaboration with London-based studio 4ThePlayer, and it may not have the complete look and feel of Yggdrasil’s usual eye-catching slots, but it’s certainly got the thrills to keep players engaged. The slot itself is quite minimal in features, however, the free spins round is one of the most enticing we’ve played, with the potential to reach up to a whopping 880 spins in total.
Have a read of our review of this high volatility slot to learn more about its functions and why it’s definitely one to look out for.

9k Yeti bonus features
While Yggdrasil’s slots do tend to be on the heavier side when it comes to features, we found 9k Yeti to be quite limited. But then we started playing and discovered the free spins round, where things get really exciting… and we didn’t mind so much. We’ll go through all the features now to give you a better idea of how it all works.
There’s up to a massive 880 free spins that can be struck in this game, and considering the free spins round has the additional Snowstorm feature, this can make the game quite lucrative. The round is triggered by landing three, four, five or six scatter symbols, which in turn will trigger eight, 15, 40 or 88 spins. Already, we’re off to a good start.
The free spins round can be retriggered by finding more scatter symbols, and each time you’ll trigger up to an additional 50 spins. This can keep going and going up to a maximum of 880 spins in total.
During the free spins round, the Snowstorm feature can kick into effect. During this feature, on any losing spin that you see both a yeti and wild land, a snowstorm will appear on the reels and shuffle all the symbols. This act will always guarantee a prize, so you’re sure to come out of the free spins round with a win either way.
The Mount Everest symbol serves as a wild, and will substitute for all symbols except scatters to help complete winning paylines.
9k Yeti jackpot
There may not be a jackpot to play for in 9k Yeti, but there are maximum payouts of 9,012x (hence the name of the slot), giving you plenty of winning potential.
RTP and volatility
9k Yeti actually has quite a high return to player at 97% – it’s one of the highest returns we’ve seen lately. It’s a high volatility slot which means you might have to play for a while before you see any big wins land, but when they do it’ll be well worth the wait.
9k Yeti on mobile
The cool thing about this slot is that it implements the Big Reel Portrait Mode, so you can actually play the slot on your mobile the right way up, with 60% of the screen in use. This mode can be toggled on and off, so if you prefer playing in landscape mode, you’ll also have the option to do so.
