Tut's Twister Slot RTP and Review (Yggdrasil)
ALL ABOUT TUT’S TWISTER SLOT
It’s been a mixed bag for Yggdrasil this year. For us, Lucha Maniacs is a quality high variance title, and the upcoming Vikings Go To Hell is an incredible addition to that series. But we were less impressed with Ozwin’s Jackpots and the low variance freaky number, Easter Island.
And now we have Tut’s Twister, a strange slot with some confusing features, but not bad potential. It will take a fair few spins to figure this one out, but ultimately we think we might come to like it.
The game follows the well-trodden path of Ancient Egyptian-themed slot games. This one picks on the figure of King Tut (Tutankhamen), the teenage pharaoh king who died at the age of 19.
There are no traditional features in this game – no scatters or bonus rounds with free spins. Instead, the main features involve Twister Reels that are triggered by wilds. Once activated they trigger re-spins where wilds are pulled into the twister alongside an increasing multiplier.

Tut’s Twister Features
There are just 2 features in this game. They come up fairly frequently so it keeps things interesting. Here’s how they both work:
You need to land two of the King Tut Wild symbols on the reel in one spin to set off the Twister. Tut will get excited and indicate that one of the wilds it the Twister wild. The reel it’s on will become a full twister and re-spins are triggered!
During the re-spins any wilds that land on the reel become ‘walking wilds’ and are pulled into the twister’s vortex. Each walking wild that lands gets you another re-spin AND if you get 3 walking wilds active at once, a multiplier is triggered.
Your multiplier starts at 2x and increases by 1 with each additional 3 walking wilds on the reels.
Your twister will keep going until there are no more walking wilds. But when the last walking wild is gone you are granted ONE MORE re-spin to see if you can land another wild to keep the round going.
When the round ends, all the wilds that were sucked into the twister are re-distributed onto the reels to give you another win.
The other feature is Twister Collection and it’s all about the hieroglyphs that appear above the reels. There are 3, 4, 5, 4 and 3 hieroglyph symbols above reels 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 respectively.
If you can fill ALL the hieroglyphs above one of the reels then you trigger the Twister Collection feature.
To start filling the hieroglyphs you will need to land single wilds during a spin. They reveal symbols that may match a hieroglyph. When it does, it fills any empty space above them.
Once all positions are filled, the Twister starts up. When it does, all hieroglyphic symbols from the position that triggered it are thrown onto the reels to create win opportunities.
Wilds at the start of the spin count to the multiplier which begins at 2x and increases by 1 with every 3 walking wilds. And all wilds that land during the re-spins become walking wilds, just like the Twister Feature.
THE SLOT BUZZ VERDICT
Tut’s Twister is not an easy game to understand at first, but once you have a few spins it starts to make sense. It lacks the full feature overload of some Yggdrasil slots – it really is just about the Twisters and Wilds – but it’s kind of a grower. Or maybe a marmite slot – you’ll love it or hate it! The variance is not too high and with a 1,000x top payout it will please some for sure.
