Everest Slot Review 2023
Relax Gaming partner Four Leaf Gaming takes us to the roof of the world in their Dueling Jokers-inspired slot, Everest.
Mount Everest stands at a whopping 8848 meters tall, which makes it just below the cruising height of a commercial airliner. Few are brave enough to make the climb in real life, but thankfully Four Leaf Gaming is bringing Nepal to us in their exciting new instalment.
Personal achievement aside, there’s a case to be made for making the climb with Four Leaf Gaming instead of a Sherpa. Climbing Mount Everest can cost between £25,000 – £70,000, yet here you can win up to 28,600x.
Those lucky enough to win such a sum could use the money to climb it for real, but personally, we’re quite content down here at sea level. Nevertheless, we’ll throw on some thermals and check out this exciting and diverse-looking slot.
Everest Slot Base Game and Features
Everest is a 5-reel slot with up to 100,000 ways to win. Winning combinations are formed when 3 or more of the same symbols (or 2 or more of the highest-paying symbol) land from left to right, starting from the leftmost reel.
The minimum bet available here is £.€0.10 per spin and the maximum bet available is £.€30 per spin, with plenty of other options in between the two. Everest has a theoretical RTP of 95.00% and a max win cap of 28,600x.
In terms of symbols, the highest-paying regular symbol here is the Purple Mask, followed by the Red, Yellow, Blue, and Green Masks. Low-paying symbols are standard Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and Ten.
Each time a winning combination forms, all winning symbols will be removed from the reels, and new symbols will drop down via a Cascade, possibly forming more winning combinations. Each win will automatically expand the reel set by +1 row.
Climbing Wilds & Avalanche Wilds
Also present across the reels are Climbing Wilds and Avalanche Wilds, both substituting for all other symbols except Scatters. Any win involving a Climbing Wild will automatically increase the reel height by 2 or 3 (depending on the number visible on it).
Avalanche Wilds will appear above any of the reels with a random Multiplier value attached to it. Each time a winning combination occurs, the Avalanche Wild will drop down and increase its Multiplier value according to the number of positions it falls.
If there are no Winning combinations below it, the entire reel will shift down 1 position and increment the Avalanche Wild Multiplier by x1.
During gameplay, a number of special Fortune Coins can land with any of the symbols in the paytable across the reels. Each Fortune Coin that is collected may trigger the Super Spinner feature.
Fortune Coins are stored in the Game & Fortune panel in the top left corner of the screen. These Coins can be used to activate or reduce the cost of the Bonus Buy features across all Four Leaf Gaming slots.
Once the Super Spinner feature is activated, you will get 1 spin on a Wheel with coloured segments that offer the following Prizes.
- Cash Prizes of 80x, 120x, 500x, and 5,000x your bet.
- 8, 10, 12, and 14 Free Spins.
- A Fortune Maker prize of 10x, 15x, 20x, and 25x your bet.
- 10, 15, 20, and 25 Nitro Spins.
Alternatively, the Super Spinner feature can be purchased for a total cost of 60x your bet via the Game & Fortune panel.
Accessing Nitro Spins can be done so through the Game & Fortune panel in the top left corner of the screen. The Game & Fortune panel will reveal a number of Bonus Buy options for those with access to it.
Activating Nitro Spins will increase your current bet by 50%, but with that comes certain benefits. Once active, Climbing Wilds, Avalanche Wilds, Scatters, and Fortune Coins will appear more frequently. In addition to this, there is a higher chance of triggering the Super Spinner feature.
When activating Nitro Spins, you will also be able to use your collected Fortune Coins to cover the cost. Nitro Spins will deduct 4 Fortune Coins per spin.
Everest Slot Free Spins
Landing 3, 4, or 5 Scatters across the reels triggers the Free Spins round, awarding 10, 12, and 14 Free Spins respectively.
Alternatively, if the reel heights reach a max height of 10, the Free Spins round is automatically awarded. All wins after the reel heights reach 10 will award an additional +1 Free Spin.
During Free Spins, the round is played with the max number of reel heights active. With each Free Spin, an Avalanche Wild will be added above one of the reels.
Avalanche Wilds will increase their Multiplier value as seen in the base game but will change the Avalance Wild Multiplier for the entire reel, which does not reset between Free Spins. Subsequent Avalanche Wilds will start with the current reels Multiplier value.
During the Free Spins round, you will be given the option to Gamble all or some of your Free Spins for a chance to win +1, +2, or +3 additional Free Spins. Simply use the slider to adjust the number of Free Spins you wish to Gamble.
The more Free Spins you gamble, the higher the chances of the Gamble being successful. A winning Gamble will add an additional +1, +2, or +3 Free Spins to your total, depending on where the Bonus Booster landed.
If you fancy it, you can gamble over and over again, for a chance to win up to 22 Free Spins. When you’re done with the Gamble, you can collect your number of Free Spins at any time to begin the Free Spins round.
At the end of the Free Spins round, you will also be able to gamble your total winnings for a chance to replay them. Landing the cursor on a Green segment will award a new Free Spins round, but landing on a Red segment will return you to the base game without any winnings.
Winning over a certain threshold during Free Spins will gain you access to the Fortune Maker feature. Here you will be able to choose how much of your total winnings you wish to gamble with.
During the Fortune Maker feature, you will need to release a ball and land it in a Winning Cart in order to climb up the Prize Ladder. There are a total of 16 Carts in play, 12 of which will win and the remaining 4 will lose.
- Round 1 – Awards 1.3x your bet.
- Round 2 – Awards 1.8x your bet.
- Round 3 – Awards 2.5x your bet.
- Round 4 – Awards 3.6x your bet.
- Round 5 – Awards 5.4x your bet.
- Round 6 – Awards 8.5x your bet.
- Round 7 – Awards 14.2x your bet.
- Round 8 – Awards 25.6x your bet.
- Round 9 – Awards 51.2x your bet.
- Round 10 – Awards 119.5x your bet.
- Round 11 – Awards 335x your bet.
- Round 12 – Awards 1,800x your bet.
Landing a ball in a Lose Cart will end the Fortune Maker feature, and return you back to the base game with No Prize. If you’re not one to risk it all, you can walk away with the current Prize on the Ladder by clicking the collect button at any time.

- Free Spins – Triggers the Free Spins round for a total cost of 60x your current bet.
- Super Spinner – Triggers 1 Spin on the Super Spinner wheel for a total cost of 60x your current bet.
Everest Slot: Our Verdict
Everest Slot is as diverse and interesting as Dueling Jokers Dream Drop with a lot to experience.
Climbing Wilds, Avalanche Wilds, Free Spins, Bonus Booster Fortune Maker, Bonus Booster, Super Spinner, and Nitro Spins make it a game with more replay value than perhaps most other games out there.
It’s interesting and capable which makes you want another go, yet your second or even third experience with the game may be totally different with such a range of features to experience. The potential is great too with a maximum win cap of 28,600x, making it formidable compared to many other slots out there.
Overall, if you’re looking for a game with suspense, thrills, diversity and potential then making the ascent to the summit of Everest proves worth it.
