Free Katmandu Gold slot
Please be patient, some games take longer to load than others!
Katmandu Gold slot by Elk Studios is yet another tumbling reels game formed of stone blocks and reflecting the subject of an ancient civilization. Instead of South American as with Ecuador Gold slot by the same developer or their Tahiti Gold slot, here we get the Nepalese or Tibet Himalayan theme. In fact, if we take into account their presumably Haiti-located Voodoo Gold slot, this is the fourth in the series. So we get mountains as the backdrop, local music and icons reflected in the appearance and some decent potential by the look of things. So can our bankroll reach the highest peaks here, or will it be buried in an avalanche of bad luck?
You start with 6 columns of 4 rows each and 4096-ways but these can increase as you collect successive cascade wins to a maximum of 9 rows or 531,441 ways to win on Katmandu Gold slot. Each win adds a row. You can also get 2x2, 3x3 or 4x4 symbols including Wilds and if these land so they jut out above the rows in play, the rows will fill to the hei9ght of the top of the block symbol. Winning tiles are replaced from above and the 6-of-a-kind pays are 5x bet Mountaineer, 3x Dragon, 2.5x Tiger, 2x Eagle, 1x or 0.8x for the 4 Element tiles and 0.3 for the 4 card values. Wilds can appear anywhere except reel 1 and before we see the main bonus, there are a couple of modifiers you can get.
Wins can expand by pushing out in the directions up and/or down indicated by arrow(s) on one of the winning tiles.
Ice Climbers can appear randomly and when 2 appear all of the column above them will transform to winning symbols including Wilds.
Collect 3 or more bonus tiles in a play to be awarded 10 free falls, rising by 5 for each over the three. Retriggers can occur, but all bonus symbols in view in the free falls will add to the increasing multiplier for the round. The rows reset between spins and don't forget that both the Ice Climber and expanding win symbols can appear in colossal sizes too, as in the base game.
I'm not sure we needed a fourth slot with a broadly similar mechanic to the rest of the 'Gold' series from Elk Studios, but Katmandu Gold slot certainly is that. It looks and sounds jolly nice but it's rare to get big wins in the base game, these are more likely in the free falls but you may wait a while for those! Your RTP is 96.20% and there is a win cap of 10,000x bet for the game and good luck with getting near that in the bonus I say. You will have fun here, but it may be a mountain to climb for your precious bankroll...
