Can you reach the throne room and catch 100x multipliers on every win? This Rise of the Mountain King slot is an epic adventure like few others.
You may or may not recognise the music softly playing in the background, but you’ll certainly understand the theme behind this Rise of the Mountain King slot.
This Norwegian folk tune will see you climb the mountain and find yourself along a mysterious path leading to golden gates. What will you find within? Will you escape the clutches of the Troll King as you tiptoe your way through to the riches within?
Or will the guards catch you, throw you in the dungeon, and leave you destitute and desolate? Anything can happen in this beautifully animated and scored game by NextGen.
Not to the confused by the Hall of the Mountain King slot by Quickspin, this beast is very different in nature, if not in theme or music.
Because here you spin 5 reels and 3 rows with 30 paylines full of trolls, weaponry and Ace to 10 symbols. It’s eye-catching, but no more so than the King who is the wild symbol.
If you get three Troll King symbols on the reels, you’ll get a free re-spin of the reels, with the wilds staying sticky on screen, and continuing to re-spin to try and get more wilds. This can lead to fairly explosive results, maybe 20x to 30x your bet.
Which, granted, doesn’t sound like much, but that’s why you have the gamble feature to add a little spice to the base game.
How do you do that if the wins in the base game of the Rise of the Mountain King slot aren’t as exciting as they could be?
Well, the reason the paytable seems a little low, is because during the free spins starts you off with a 5x multiplier on all wins. Getting a few multiple 4 or 5 of a kind wins will send you over the edge and building that treasure horse nicely.
But not as nice as when you keep catching scatters. For every 3 scatters you catch you increase the multiplier significantly (as well as how many free spins), jumping from x5, to x10, x15, x25, x50 all the way to x100!
Granted. Getting through these halls and into the throne room for that 100x multiplier is as elusive as winning on progressive slots. But it’s fun to try and meanwhile even a 5x multiplier can make a difference to your wins.
The Rise of the Mountain King online slot is one of those real money slots, much like the 300 Shields Extreme slot game, that should only be braved by those looking for big dangerous thrills. It won’t please everyone, but for a few adrenaline junkies, it will hit all the right notes.

Wild: The Mountain troll king is the wild symbol and replaces all symbols except scatter.
King's Re-spin Feature: 3 or more wild symbols on screen will award a free re-spin with held wilds. The re-spins will continue for as long as you keep to getting wild symbols on each re-spin. Any scatters that show up will turn into a wild symbol.
Scatters or Free Spins: 8, 9 or 10 free spins are triggered when you get 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols on the reels. Each scatter is then collected and added to collect meter. Every scatter that shows up during the free spins is also collected and adds a +1 free spin to the game.
Buy Pass: For 100x your bet, you can buy the free spins straight up. Or you can spin a wheel and for half the price, get a 50/50 chance of triggering the free spins. During the buy pass, the RTP of the game increases from 96.313% up to 96.848%.
Gamble Feature: After any win, you can gamble that win by playing a simple card game. Either guess if the next card in the pack is red or black, and get double your bet. Or guess the suit of the card, and you'll win quadruple your bet. If you guess wrong, you'll lose your initial win.
There's something wonderfully crazy about the multipliers within the Rise of the Mountain King slot game. It's hard not to love any machine that can give you up to 100x multiplier on any win.
Sure, it means it sacrifices some of the payable amounts during the base game, but even then you can still get the occasional rush whilst you wait for the free spins.
Use the buy pass feature lightly, it can be dangerous to enter the hall of this mountain king expecting treasure. Yes, there is 50,000x your bet to find, but trolls are not generous by nature. You'll have to prove your worthiness and willingness to sacrifice time and budget to infiltrate these NextGen Gaming slot halls.
