The snow-capped peaks of the highest mountain range in the world are the location for this online slot from Barcrest; it’s called Himalayas Roof of the World and it combines that rarefied atmosphere with Buddhist spirituality and a side helping of free spins – check out our review below.
Himalayas Roof of the World is a five reel slot with ten rows and one hundred fixed paylines; those reels spin between red columns and beneath an ornate golden beam while in the background there are views of lofty mountain peaks overlooking what might be the famous Potala Palace.
The two highest value symbols are the monk and woman and they can both appear stacked on the reels; there’s also an eagle, some climbing gear, a tiger and a tent. Playing card symbols of yellow, blue, red and pink represent the lower values.
The wild is an icy ‘Wild’ which will replace all others to help make winning combos except for the mountain bonus symbol.
This can occur at any time in the base game or free spins and this avalanche will crash down over the reels, leaving up to fifty wild symbols on the reels.
This is triggered by landing three or more of the mountain bonus symbols anywhere in view for which you will receive 8, 12 or 20 free spins respectively; look out for a compass symbol landing on reel five because each one will make it more likely that spinning the wheel at the end of the round will result in a visit to a map of the Himalayas and some extra spins.
You’ll also see the Big Freeze symbol during free spins and if this it will expand to fill up all positions on its reel with wild symbols.
Big Bet Game
This is always good fun and it’s an optional extra bet which pays for five spins and some added extras:
- £20 Big Bet – the free spins can be triggered with just two bonus symbols.
- £30 Big Bet – the free spins can be triggered with just two bonus symbols and the low paying symbols are removed.
- £50 Big Bet – the free spins can be triggered with just two bonus symbols, low paying symbols are removed and one reel is always completely wild during free spins.
Himalayas is a slot we’ve enjoyed playing with its clever free spins round, Snow Slide and accurate recreation of the Tibetan landscape; playing the Big Bet is always a good option because the RTP increases from 94.00% to 97.75% for the £50 choice.
