Icy Wilds Slot Machine

Icy Wilds has been a successful recent hit for US developer, IGT , in the land-based casinos. In fact, if you live and play slots in the UK you may have noticed it in some of the UK betting shop FOBTs. It was inevitable that the game has made a seamless transition to the online and mobile platforms and has swiftly become one of 2017's most-anticipated games.

And after the success of Disney's Frozen, no wonder it's proving to be a big hit; in fact, all we need is Queen Elsa belting out Let It Go to make the connection complete. The game is a veritable shimmer-fest of glittery graphics, twinkling twinkly things, and sound FX.

Hit 1000 A Spin Over 50 Paylines

But IGT's Icy Wilds is more than just a homage to The Snow Queen, Frozen, and Frosty the Snowman: it's actually packed with juicy bonuses and comes with a £1,000 top stake.

The game is played over five reels and four rows and has 50 paylines to bet on. It IS a little high on the variance scale, but that's because the bonus round - more of which later - is so cool when you trigger it.

Sticky Wilds The Big Draw

As you'd expect from an online slot to do with ice queens and magical kingdoms, the symbols are all jewellery-related or magical animals.

The basic 10, J, Q, K and A symbols are the low payers, with three 10s paying out just 1/25 of your stake. The animals pay a little higher, 2x your stake for 5OAK, moving up to the Princess. This beauty pays for just two on a winning payline (one-tenth your stake) but can pay 10x your stake if you hit 5OAK. She also appears as a stacked Scatter on the reels - which isn't completely clear in the paytable - so you can win wherever she lands.

The big bonus of Icy Wilds is that most symbols in the game (other than the poker letters 10-to-Ace and Wilds like the crown, ring, mirror, snowcat, owl, and fox) can appear stacked - if they do that they will then turn into stacked Wilds and "freeze" in place for a re-spin, becoming a 'FULL REEL WILD'.

The Wild substitutes for all regular icons except the Bonus Free Spins Scatter. A reel will also turn completely Wild at random for an extra spin.

Land Polar Bears For Free Spins

Three or more of the angry-looking polar bear Scatters triggers a free spins round that can reward up to 45 free spins. The Free Spins icons can appear stacked on the reels too, so they can be pretty good if you land them in the right places.

However, and this is the crucial thing, you have to land Scatters on at least three reels - just having Stacked Scatters doesn't count - to trigger the bonus.

The more Scatters that appear on the reels when you trigger the round the more spins you win. So, just three Scatters anywhere on three different reels awards 10 spins, four Scatters 12 spins, and 20 Scatters (a full set of reels) a maximum 45 spins.

The bonus can re-trigger, and don't forget that the reels can be enhanced with bonus symbols (even though the paytable doesn't spell this out).
