Head to the highest peak where this Himalayas Roof of the World mobile slot promises an avalanche of wilds.
So let’s start where we always start with these Barcrest slots; this is a Big Bet Game.
Meaning that you will have the option to bet big to get extra advantages and a better house edge. And it’s a lot better.
This Himalayas slot has a high 6% edge if you play using the normal betting range of 0.10 to 500 a spin. But if you decide to play 5 spins for 50 in cash, that betting range will decrease to a low 2.5%.
Mostly because it’s far too tempting to try and bet more than you should to get more out of a slot machine. We prefer when it’s an even playing ground.
Still, the reason why we gave this Himalayas Roof of the World slot 3 instead of 2 stars is that you can actually play this game without the big bet options.
You have stacked high paying symbols over 5 reels and 10 rows, all set over a snowy mountain village just ripe for destruction.
Why destruction? Because at any point you might trigger an avalanche that gives you up to 50 wilds on the screen, or better yet, 3 bonus symbols that give you the awesome free spins.
The free spins are no doubt the crowning glory, namely because here you get expanding wild symbols that cover the reels.
Add those avalanches, and you can get some fantastic wins. You also have a compass that after every free spin rounds, can re-trigger extra free spins.
But, and here’s the problem: it won’t happen often. Again, that’s all down to that low return to player rate.
Your best bet is still to use the Big Bet button and try and get a few extra features: easier to trigger free spins, less low paying symbols, guaranteed wild reels during the bonus games and higher paying symbols.
So despite some redeemable qualities, we would still only recommend this Barcrest Scientific Games slot to those who like to bet big before heading home.
Take it from us; it’s easier to get larger wins on games like 2018 Kronos Unleashed game and Wacky Races slot if you want to bet less than $€£2 a spin.

Stacked Symbols: All symbols come stacked, but the two high paying one can cover all 10 rows of this Himalayas mobile slot.
Value of the symbol increase when playing in big bet mode.
Wilds: The frozen wild can replace any other symbol on the reel to create a win on a payline. It does not replace bonus symbols.
Snow Slide Bonus: During any spin, an avalanche may leave behind up to 50 wilds on screen. Usually, at least 8 or 10.
Free Spin Bonus: Get 3, 4, or 5 mountaintop scatters to trigger 8, 12, or 20 free spins bonuses. During this feature, you'll find big freeze wild symbols that will expand to cover the whole reel.
You will also collect compass symbols during the Himalayas bonus games. Each compass adds a 1/5th of a segment to the main mystery compass on the side of the reels which you then get to spin at the end of the bonus round.
If the cursor falls on the segment collected, you generally win around 4 to 7 extra spins. If it falls outside of that, the bonus round ends.
Big Bet Games: So not only is the value of the symbols higher but now you can trigger the bonus games using only 2 scatters.
So 2, 3, 4 or 5 scatters, will trigger 8, 12, 20 and 50 free spins respectively.
You will need to pay for 5 spins to the total amount of:
This Himalayas Roof Of The World game looks good for a 100 payline machine with 10 rows full of stacked symbols.
But so many symbols require a whole load of wilds to get any wins worth shouting about when you get to the top of the mountain.
Generally, this casino game does provide those wilds, but if you don't use the big bet options, you might get lost in the snow before you find those bonus features.
In short, a good game let down by a low return for casual gamblers. Whilst not impossible to play, this definitely favours high limit slot players who enjoy other similar games like Monopoly On the Money slot or Rainbow Riches Fortune Favours machine.
