Play Himalayas slots for free or real money - no pop-up ads, no spam
Marketed by SG Interactive, Himalayas Roof of the World was developed by Barcrest. This 5-reel, 100-payline slot is taking us way up high - to the snow-covered peaks of the highest mountain range in the world. The element of Buddhist spirituality elevates the atmosphere and plenty of free spins can easily cure anyone’s fear of heights.
Once you load Himalayas Roof of the World, you can’t help but feel astonished by the quality of the graphics and the game design. The colours are truly exquisite, vibrant and clean, and the backdrop of the cold mountain peaks looks more attractive than ever. A Buddhist temple can be seen behind the reels which are framed by red and gold pillars. The grid is 10 rows high and features 5 columns, offering payouts across 100 fixed paying lines.
The symbols are mostly related to the theme. The exceptions are the spade, heart, clubs and diamonds (they are attached to the lowest values). The paytable shows symbols of a tiger, an eagle, a camping tent, some climbing equipment, a woman and a monk. The two characters will pay out the most for combinations of three and more and will appear in stacks. The mountain icon is the Bonus symbol and an icy word WILD is the substitution symbol. The controls come down to a Paytable button, Spin button, +/- for the bet size and a BB button which stands for the optional Big Bet feature which we’ll explain soon enough.
Himalayas Roof of the World has a random Snow Slide feature. It occurs unannounced and takes form of an avalanche. Crashing down the reels, the avalanche will leave up to 50 Wild symbols on the grid and pay off any winning combos. Snow Slide can happen both in base game and free spins mode. To trigger free spins, the player needs to land three or more mountain Bonus icons. Three mountains activate 8 freebies; land four or five Bonus symbols and you will get credited with 12 and 20 free spins, respectively. In free spins mode, two new symbols appear: the compass and the Big Freeze symbol. The compass affects the spin of the wheel at the end of the round, adding extra spins. The Big Freeze symbol adds expanding Wilds.
The fun at the top of the world does not end here, because you can take advantage of the Big Bet Game. Activate the £20 Big Bet and you will be able to trigger free spin with only two Bonus symbols. If you go for the £30 Big Bet you will also trigger freebies with two Bonus symbols and there will be no low paying symbols on the reels. For the £50 Big Bet, you will get one reel completely Wild, alongside the two previously mentioned perks.
For a slot themed around the cold Himalayan conditions, Himalayas Roof of the World is an extremely enjoyable slot. The Tibetan influence gives it a different approach, and the features are cleverly devised. It is recommendable to use the Big Bet feature, because the RTP increases from 94.00% to 97.75% if you go all the way.
