Icy Wilds Slot Review, RTP & Free Play

Icy Wilds Slot Review

If you are a fan of the recent Disney movie, Frozen, then there is a good chance you will be enamoured with what IGT has done with Icy Wilds and they have created an aesthetically beautiful game that takes players to a cold and icy region, far away. The setting for this game is beautiful but there is a chilling and eerie vibe that it brings with it. The game is available on the mobile platform, meaning that players who wish to enjoy this title from their iPhone or Android system will be able to do so. What’s more is that the game is optimised to work from your web browser, so you don’t need to go ahead and download any additional software to play his gem of a title.

Looks & Feel:

The Northern Lights appear overhead of the slots in this title, as well as plenty of interesting symbols that pop up and stay true to this rather niche genre. The main colour theme throughout are combinations of cold colours that, as you would expect, really help with the overall tone and mood of this title.

This slot is a 5-reel that has 4 rows and 50 different ways in which players can form winning combinations, across paylines. The symbols for Icy Wilds also do a great job of using the theme to its advantage and players will find lower value symbols like the 10, J, Q, K and A. The higher ranked symbols are a princess, a crown, a tiger, a locket, a small ermine and an owl.

Instead of having conventional wild and bonus symbols, we must commend IGT for bringing something a little bit different to the table. This manages to keep things interesting and allows the game to play out differently to other slots that you’ve seen before.

Bonus Features:

Wild Rule: The higher value symbols can all appear stacked anywhere on the reels and if they do manage to take up the entire reel and fill it, this will stay stacked for an extra spin. Once the spin has finished, the symbols will return to their old positions.

Free Spins: This bonus round commences when you land on 3 or more of the polar bear symbols, anywhere on the reels. Because these symbols can appear stacked, this can accrue players up to a massive 45 free spins for the maximum of 20 bear icons. The minimum is 10 free spins, which is awarded for 3 bear icons.

Icy Wilds RTP %:

This game comes with a return to player rate of 96%. This is reasonable, especially when you factor in how the stacked reels work.

Verdict:

Although this game doesn’t bring anything particularly innovative to the table, it manages to bring a couple of features together which really make the gameplay fun. Despite having only 2 bonus features, they can both activate together and when this happens, players can receive a massive number of free spins that can prove to profitable. The animations and illustrations aren’t the most detailed, nor do they use the latest 3D graphics but still manage to do the job.
