Hall Of The Mountain King Slot Review – Quickspin
Quickspin has gone quiet for a while with slot releases, we had ‘Ticket To The Stars‘ release in February. Then ‘Durian Dynamite‘ recently released in April which I reviewed in its early stages. But nothing has shocked or surprised the casino community in a while. Could their next release titled ‘Hall Of The Mountain King‘, bring something new from the provider. This slot is set to release ‘May 14th‘ on all sites.
This slot is themed around a king of trolls who lives deep inside the mountains, he isn’t the nicest king and likes to give promises to lure you. The whole adventure and storytelling vibe reminds me of ‘Ivan And The Immortal King‘ a previous Quickspin release. When loading this slot I loved listening to the soundtrack, it reminds me of something you would hear in a movie like Lord Of The Rings. Then when spinning the slot the soundtrack completely changes to a soundtrack which will sound familiar to many people, it is ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ by Grieg. Which what a coincidence is the slot name, amazing choice of music as this soundtrack is very famous and goes very well with the slots sound effects.
The slots visuals are very well made with great detail, Quickspin has some very talented artists which can be seen even in older releases. In the background there is scenery with cloud animations and the mountain can be seen. The main attraction is the slot itself of course. The setup is 5 reels by 3 rows, which includes 20 pay lines. The set RTP is 96.29% and Quickspin has rated this game 5/5 based on volatility. Which I can agree with due to the max win capped at 7,326x.

In the base game, you will benefit from the additional wild reel on the left side of the reel. The multipliers are awarded when 1+ wild lands on reels, this will award the multiplier the reel has landed on. The multipliers are 1x-5x.
Landing 3 scatters on reels 2,3 and 4. This will activate the free spins feature, this is not just a regular free spins feature as instead there are 3 different stages incorporated into the spins.

Progression to Level 2 will trigger when the top block has been smashed. Also, the troll king can upgrade the multiplier values on the additional reel.

Overall, This slot was so much fun to test out. Quickspin has done a great job creating this release. The slot has great volatility with fun gameplay. The free spins feature is tense and very fun. The levels can be confusing at first but easy to learn thanks to the information displayed when triggered. I love the art style and soundtrack used.
