Net Entertainment’s Icy Wonders
Icy Wonders is a video slots game designed and developed by software giants Net Entertainment (NetEnt). The game is part of a trilogy of ‘Wonders’ games and shares a progressive jackpot with the other two games in the series.
This Icy Wonders video slots game takes players on a journey into arctic lands, where they are greeted by five reels, thirty pay lines, and multiple coin denominations and bet levels. Players will also encounter scatter symbols, wild symbols, free spins, and a ‘Pick Penguins’ bonus game.
The Icy Wonders video slots game is compatible with a range of operating systems and will run on Windows, Linux, and Mac computers.
The Icy Wonders Theme
The world of ice and snow is represented throughout the Icy Wonders video slots game, bringing the arctic theme to life. Players will encounter lots of blue and white ice in the background, and symbols are also representative of the theme.
The lower paying symbols are comprised of standard poker value symbols and include the jack, queen, king, and aces. These appear as colourful letters frozen in a cube of ice. The higher paying symbols are comprised of elements that fit into the arctic landscape, such as an igloo, a chubby walrus, a Siberian husky, and a polar bear who has just caught a fish. The polar bear is the highest paying symbol.
The Icy Wonders Wild Symbol
The wild symbol in the Icy Wonders video slots game is represented by the icon of the whale. The whale wild symbol can substitute any of the other symbols in the game, except for the jackpot, scatter, and bonus symbols. Once the whale wild symbol comes into play, the figure will become animated, spinning around and spraying mist from his blowhole.
The Icy Wonders Progressive Jackpot
The Icy Wonders video slots game offers players two progressive jackpots. The first is the Mega Wonder Jackpot. Players will require five jackpot symbols in order to win this. The next is the Wonder Jackpot. Players will require four jackpot symbols to win this.
Since the progressive jackpot is built by taking a small part of each bet and adding it the jackpot, players will have a higher chance of winning the jackpot if they bet more.
The jackpot symbol is represented by a flashing yellow star that will appear in one corner of other symbols while they are being spun.
The Icy Wonders Scatter Symbol
The scatter symbol in the Icy Wonders video slots game is represented by a young Eskimo girl. Landing three of the Eskimo scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will activate the game’s free spins feature.
The number of scatter symbols landed is directly proportional to the number of free spins that will be rewarded. Landing three scatter symbols will reward players with ten free spins. Landing four scatter symbols will reward players with twenty free spins. Finally, landing five scatter symbols will reward players with thirty free spins.
All free spins come with a two-time multiplier. Free spins can also be re-triggered.
