- but why not try one of these?
This cool-looking online slot kicks off with an intro movie showing some adventurer leap out of a helicopter into an icy landscape and it soon becomes clear that the theme of this game is ice climbing and it’s inherent danger. It’s called Ice Picks, it’s from Rival Gaming and it’s well worth checking out so read on to find out more.
Ice Pick plays out over five reels and up to twenty paylines and the game’s backdrop is an ice cave stretching away into the distance. The main symbols are split into two groups as follows:
- Climbing Equipment – ice axe & rope, helmet, spiked boots, goggles
- Frozen In Ice – stone hammer, skulls, vase, buddha statue. jewels
The special symbols include a wild crate and two scatters – a treasure map and a compass – which trigger separate features.
This is where the symbols frozen in ice are important; if you can make a winning combo with them they will collapse and more symbols will fall into their place, potentially creating another combo. It’s like getting a free spin!
The old manual compass is the scatter symbol which triggers the free spins and landing three or more anywhere in view will reward you with following:
- Three compasses – five free spins
- Four compasses – ten free spins
- Five compasses – twenty five free spins
All wins will be multiplied by 3x and it’s also possible to re-trigger the spins by landing three more scatters.
Three or more treasure map scatter symbols will trigger this mini-game and your task here is to pick from the displayed ice blocks to reveal a prize. Nice and simple.
Ice Picks Online Slot Playing Tips
You can play with up to twenty paylines but if you’re just after the features you may want to keep your stake to a minimum and use just one payline. The features are triggered by scatter symbols so your chances of activating them will be the same.
This is a really polished and entertaining slot with lots of bonus features (we like the Ice Drop) and background sounds reminiscent of Himalayan temples.
