Everyone needs a vacation, even an abominable snowman. While the yeti might come from a snowy and frozen area that doesn’t mean it doesn’t like to kick back on a sunny and sandy beach, soaking up the rays and catching some radical waves.
If there’s any developer that knows how to make a yeti getaway it’s Play’n GO, they’ve created many different types of video slots before so their creativity is nearly endless. For us however, this doesn’t so much feel like a vacation but rather a nature documentary. We’ll follow the yeti as he surfs, scuba dives and bungee jumps.
Join us as we find out just how yetis like to relax and blow off some steam. Along the way we’ll let you know all about Hotel Yeti-Way so you know what to expect when you find yourself at the resort.
Theme & Symbols
Picture a tropical island getaway resort, that’s basically what this video slot channels. The only thing that might be off are the yeti guests, but that’s why we’re checking it out!
The moment you load up the game you’ll hear the David Attenborough-like narrator announce the title of the game. That won’t be the last you’ll be hearing of him so if you thought that it was a nice surprise then you’re in for a treat.
The background of the title is in an area of the hotel that keeps all the surfing, diving and jumping equipment. It’s fitting that it’s all here since the yeti will be using all of it. Plants sway gently in the breeze and there’s hardly a cloud in the sky.
While the grid might be fairly basic, it’s actually for the better. With a simpler grid it’s easier to focus on the symbols as they land, especially with everything that goes on in this slot.
The music is fantastic, the island tune that plays is perfect and fits the theme marvelously. The sound effects are soft, keeping you in the relaxed state of the game. In contrast, whenever the yeti is on screen it gets loud, showing just how bombastic he can be. Animations are also spot on, the video slot comes to life when everything starts moving.
In total, Play’n GO did a fantastic job creating this fun and light hearted video slot game.
We’ll start off by listing all the low-paying icons first, these are the ones that you’ll most likely see during your time with the game. These are represented by playing card values such as 10, J, Q, K and A.
The high-paying symbols are the ones you’ll want to keep an eye out for. They are represented by Sunscreen, Flops, Sunglasses, A Hat and a Shark.
A blue Wild symbol will substitute for all the common symbols in the game, helping you to build some amazing combos.
A Treasure Map is this title’s Scatter symbol. Land enough of these during a single spin, or even during bonus spins, and a special gameplay feature will trigger.
There are three different types of yeti activity that can land on the reels, Bungee Jumping, Surfing and Scuba Diving. The narrator will announce whenever the yeti might make an appearance on the reels. We’ll get into what each yeti does a little further on.
