Hall of the Mountain King Slot Review
Adventure deep into the mountains and find the King of Trolls. Can you hear his sweet whispers, promising of riches and fortune? Of course you do. Why else are you here!
The latest medieval and fantasy themed game from the Quickspin folks. Drawing inspiration from the famous classical piece “In the Hall of the Mountain King” by Edvard Grieg and character inspiration from the World of Warcraft and Lord of the Rings, the game is a visual delight to watch. The magic and mind behind this game are just phenomenal. Musically the game is more of a piece of art than the usual slot music you get. You still get the usual slot sounds coming through but that’s to be expected, it is a slot game after all.
The music helps build the excitement and tension as you progress forward and venture further and further into this new and brilliant slot from the Quickspin team.
A 5×3 reel with a 20 pay-line set up the game is burst with features.
During the base game, there’s a multiplier stack to your left. Here, whenever you get a win in a spin it gets multiplied by the indicated multiplier on the stack. There are five different multiplier amounts and which one you get is determined by how many Wild symbols you land in your spin.
And then we get into the bonus round. That one that you have been putting the spins through, the one that you been waiting for! The music intensifies and everything gets a bit more interesting and things start to happen!
Get three hammers and you’re in.
Let’s start with the features. These are split over three levels.
- Symbol upgrades
- Whirling Wilds
- Whirling Wilds Drop
You also have the multiplier stack on the left. Unlike the base game, this also gets smashed (by the invisible Troll) increasing the multiplier through the round up to 15x. This will happen each time you win.
So let’s get into the rounds:
Level one starts with the Symbol upgrades. You want to try and collect as many high-value symbols as possible here through the Symbol upgrade feature. Each time, either randomly or through a winning combination, you will have a troll (who’s invisible) smash the stacked piece by piece on the right-hand side. Low-value symbols are removed and replaced with higher value ones. To get to the next stage all these blocks need to be destroyed.
Level two offers you, Whirling Wilds. When the invisible Troll breaks the stacks, same as before these unlock the Whirling Wilds that are trapped in there. Once unleashed these are held in suspense ready and waiting for the next round.
And then finally if you make it, you get into level three!
Here the suspended whirling wilds are dropped in three intense spins. A random number gets dropped to help you get the winning combinations you need.
This is another great game out this month and I honestly am loving every second of it.
Hall of the Mountain King is a truly beautifully designed slot, graphically, mechanically and musically. The story behind it, the progression through the bonus round. I really cannot fault it at all.
Play it, and get into that bonus round. It’s worth it!
