 Golden Yak slot from Microgaming

Golden Yak slot from MicrogamingThe Yak is an essential animal for the life and economic affairs of the population from the vast, desolated, and inhospitable surrounding of some Asian mountainous areas. From the earliest of times, the Yak has been utterly correlated with the culture, social life, and religion of the herders and their clans in Qinghai-Tibetan plateau, China, Mongolia, Nepal, and Central Asia.

What makes the yak exceptional for the climate and overall environmental conditions in which it lives? 

The animal is adapted:

  • to cold and frostiness (heat is conserved via thick outer hair plus thick skin),
  • to low oxygen at elevated altitudes (large lungs and very rapid breathing),
  • to a lack of feed for up to seven months of the year (imposed by the shortly available grazing lands),
  • to steep terrains and jeopardy from wolves and other predators.

In 2020 the Lightning Box Studio was developed and released via Microgaming’s platform, an online game revolving around this sturdy animal. Golden Yak slot machine has an unusual theme with beautiful design, graphics, and attuned to topic Asian sound motives. From a technical point of view, this is a game with a 5x4 grid, 1024 win ways, Medium Variance, and under the industry average RTP of 95.52%. Here you can win the hefty maximum prize of over 3600x the bet (according to the provider) inside the multi-level Free Spins bonus round with a potential of 100x multiplier for combinations with Wild symbols.
