Mount M – Overview
Let’s go back a couple of millions year for Play’n Go’s new online slot game, Mount M.
This game is set in the ice age with a list of extinct animals. Including a sabertooth tiger and of course the famous mammoth.
You will find 5 reels that start out 4 symbols high and uses 1024 ways. But the number of ways can be increased to 8.192 ways with the help of a bonus and the free spins feature.
Beside five different extinct animals as symbols, you will also find standard card symbols and wild and scatter symbols on all reels. The normal pay symbols can appear stacked on all reels.
Mount M comes with a maximum payout of 13.000 times your bet, which is a pretty high number.
Mount M Features
During the normal spins reels 2, 3 and 4 can randomly have a shining border. When this border is active and a wild symbol lands on these reels, you will trigger a Shatter Re-spin.
1, 2, 3 or 4 of the animal symbols will be upgraded into the mammoth symbol, which is the highest paying symbol. And for each animal that is upgraded reels 2, 3 and 4 will get an extra row of symbols and therefore increasing the total number of ways.
After this you will get a free re-spin.
If all 4 animals are upgraded into the mammoth symbol you are playing on the maximum number of 8.192 ways.
Evolution Free Spins
3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols will award 10, 15 and 20 free spins respectively.
During free spins the extra rows of symbols above reels 2, 3 and 4 are locked and need to be unlocked by collecting wild symbols. Each wild symbol appearing will fill a spot and when you fill all spots in a row you will upgrade a symbol into a mammoth, unlock more ways and get 1 extra free spin.
To unlock all the extra rows and upgrade the 4 lower animals into the mammoth symbol you need to collect 4, 10, 14 and 17 wild symbols in total.
2, 3, 4 or 5 scatter symbols during free spins will add 3, 5, 8 and 10 extra free spins.
As with most Play’n Go slots, the game looks good. Of course the ice age theme, or even mammoth theme, has been done before, but it does work and isn’t overdone yet.
The base game bonus is a nice addition and can even award some great wins when enough symbols upgrade. The free spins feature is a lot of fun. I’m always a big fan of bonus games where you can upgrade the game. In this case increase the number of ways and also get more and more of the same symbols.
And of course a maximum win of 13.000 times your bet is also great!
