ELK Studios has sent their resident explorer Kane off on another adventure. This time, he’s scaling the Himalayan mountains to find ancient gold.

As you accompany him on this adventure in Katmandu Gold, you’re in for an exciting experience with up to 531,441 winning ways, colossal symbols, free spins, transforming symbols and expanding symbols.

An Adventure in the Himalayas

Katmandu Gold from ELK Studios is another game that stars that brave adventurer Kane. Like Ecuador Gold and Voodoo Gold, Kane heads off on yet another thrill expedition as he climbs the Himalayas in search of treasure.

The slot features the same semi-realistic, semi-comic book style art design as the other games in the Gold series. It also has a very atmospheric soundtrack that would be great accompaniment in a tense movie scene.

Ice Climber and Expanding Win Features

There are two smaller bonus features that you can trigger during the base game and free spins round of Katmandu Gold.

Ice Climber

The first is the Ice Climber, which is triggered when you land two ice climber symbols. Here, all of the symbols above will be turned into high-paying symbols, and an additional row of symbols will be added to the game.

Expanding Win

Whenever a symbol with one or two arrows appears on the reels, they can trigger the Expanding Win feature. If it is involved in a winning combination, the symbol will expand in that direction, replacing all of the symbols in its path.  

Multiplier Free Drops

When you land three or more bonus symbols, you’ll trigger the free spins round – Multiplier Free Drops. The number of scatters that trigger the round will determine how many drops you get:

  • 3 symbols: 10 drops
  • 4 symbols: 15 drops
  • 5 symbols 20 drops
  • 6 symbols 25 drops

During this bonus, every bonus symbol that appears will increase the game’s win multiplier. This has the potential to trigger some amazing awards; however, it also means that you can’t retrigger the round.

Overall Review

The Gold series from ELK Studios is always good fun, and we’ve enjoyed every installment that we’ve played so far. Katmandu Gold is really no exception.

Like all of the games that have come before it, Katmandu Gold is just as exciting with loads of great features and bonuses that keep you entertained as you spin the reels.

There’s nothing that we can find fault with in Katmandu Gold. There’s lots going on, but it doesn’t make for confusing gameplay and big wins are available but you don’t end up waiting a long time in between wins. So, it’s a great balance of gameplay that really keeps you entertained as you spin the reels.
