The NetEnt Icy Wonders slot if reviewed in some detail on this page. Below you will find information on the basics of the game. This includes big and small wins, bet amounts and the special symbols. The bonus feature and jackpots are covered in the section below that. At the end of the page, you’ll find a summary and my closing thoughts on this popular game.
How to Play the Icy Wonders Slot Game
The reels in this slot all have symbols which are winter related animals or characters and the barriers between reels are made up of icicles. The low paying symbols in Icy Wonders slot are made up of the playing card icons Jack through Ace. These are all frozen in icebergs. The highest payout is with 5 Aces and will get you 125 coins. Higher value symbols are made up of typical animals and natives from the icy regions of the North and South poles. On the reels you will see a Polar bear, a Husky dog, a Walrus and an igloo. If you are lucky enough to land 5 Polar bears you can pick up 1000 coins.
Icy Wonders slot has thirty adjustable pay lines on 5 reels, with 4 bet levels. I recommend you stick with the full 30 lines, as this maximizes your wins when you have a wild on the reels. If necessary you can reduce the number of coins bet to give yourself a comfortable total spin cost. The minimum coin value per line is on $0.01c and the max at $0.50c. The minimum bet per spin is $0.30 and the maximum is $60.
The Wild symbol in this slot is represented by a rather comical looking shark, which will substitute for all symbols except for except for jackpot, scatter and bonus symbols to complete a winning combination. Only the highest win per active pay line is paid. If you manage to land 5 Wild symbols it will pay a healthy 7500 coins.
If you land 3 or more Scatter symbols (depicted by an arctic native girl) you will trigger the free spins game. The Scatter wins will pay your total bet plus multiplier which can be up to 400x if you are lucky enough to land 5. If you land 2 Scatter symbols in the main game your winning line pays out 2x. These multipliers, along with the jackpots, make up for the relatively small regular wins you’ll get from the reels in this game.
Icy Wonders Bonus Features
Icy Wonder slot includes a Bonus symbol which is a penguin wearing a woolly hat, which if three or more land in succession from left to right on an active win line activates the bonus game. In the Bonus game you are presented with 12 of penguins to pick from, and each will reveal a prize if they are holding a fish. If you choose a penguin that is holding a fish’s skeleton the game will end. While this is a basic (if entertaining) pick-em type game, you will benefit from some reasonably big wins when you catch the best penguins.
Win The Jackpot
During game play in Icy Wonders slot you will notice that symbols will often appear on the reels with a gold star on them. These stars are what you need to get to win one of the progressive jackpots. If you land 4 stars you win the Wonder Jackpot and if you are lucky enough to land 5 stars you win the Mega Wonder Jackpot. Check your favorite NetEnt casino to see the current levels of these jackpots, which can often rise to six or even seven figures.
The NetEnt Icy Wonder Slot Summary
Icy Wonder slot is a very simple game to play without too many complicated extra features. There is one very simple interactive bonus round and a free spins scatter round. There were a lot of small wins given out during the normal game-play. At the same time there is a contribution from every spin towards the progressive jackpot pools. I would rate this as a medium-variance slot. It is an entertaining enough game, though could certainly benefit with one or two more features to bring it up to date with the more recently released titles.
Overall, this is a solid and nicely designed slot from NetEnt, and worth checking out next time you have the opportunity.
