A frozen hit
The title of the game very much sums up the game's chilled theme, and the symbols also remain consistent with the icy characteristics. If you had to compare the game to any other video graphics, it would most certainly have to be the incredible Disney hit, Frozen. With abundant icicles and and snowflakes filling your screen, you will feel like you have entered a fairytale kingdom of snow and ice. In place of the two female protagonists, though, is one incredible ice princess.
To add to the magical feel of this free slots game, the soothing Northern Lights also dance around in the sky, lighting up a banner of glistening stars. The reels feature some standard icons, such as the typical symbols from a deck of playing cards. However, in contrast, the ice kings and queens amongst you will be thrilled to see snowy owls and white snow leopards, as well as some very special diamond (or ice) encrusted jewellery fit for the ruler of this polar kingdom. It's great to see this cool-toned slot offering something new to the industry, which can often seem to be full of western, Egyptian or caveman slots.
Gaming in the snow
With 5 reels and a remarkable 50 paylines, IGT's Icy Wilds is a slick new release from this developer, with some great opportunities for satisfying wins. The game has some exciting features and bonuses, and a stack of symbols, including any of the Arctic creatures or iced jewels, can turn a reel into a wild in time for your next spin. Also, certain combinations on the reels can lead to free spins rolling in.
Wild symbols in turn replace all other symbols except for the bonus symbol. The most valuable icon and the one to look out for is the princess symbol, which pays out at a rate of 500x the stake you placed on that line. The coolest feature of all, however, has to be the Free Spins Bonus, which is triggered by finding three or more polar bears on the same number of separate reels. They may have a reputation for being fierce, but these big soft animals are your best ally!
Icy Wilds is available to play on mobile and tablet, as well as on desktop PC or Mac. It has been optimised for use across a range of platforms, which means that you benefit from top of the range graphics, no matter what your screen size is. To top this, you can choose your wager depending on how you feel. You don't even have to play with real money at all! The game offers enough excitement to give you goosebumps with or without the risk of playing with real cash.
