Get your big coat out of the cupboard because it’s time to head north to a land where snow covers the ground all year long and the Aurora Borealis is visible in the night sky; welcome to Icy Wilds, an online slot machine from IGT with two separate bonus features and perhaps the first appearance of an ermine in a slot – check it out below.
Icy Wilds is a five reel slot with four rows and fifty fixed paylines; those reels spin within a chilly, snow-draped frame behind which there’s a multicoloured, star-filled sky above a tree-lined landscape.
The theme-related symbols include a princess, her regal accoutrements – a crown, a posh ring and a locket – along with a tiger, an owl and an ermine; 10, J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
We’ll explain how the wild symbols work in detail below but they substitute for all others to form winning combos except for the polar bear scatter icon.
All symbols can appear stacked on the reels and if any of the symbols shown to the right fill an entire reel they will act as full stack of wilds for the next spin. They will then return to their original form.
This is triggered by landing at least three of the polar bear scatter symbols anywhere in view and because these can also be stacked it’s possible for luckiest players to land up to twenty which will award the following:
- Three Bears – 10 spins
- Four Bears – 12 spins
- Five Bears – 14 spins
- Six Bears – 16 spins
- Seven Bears – 18 spins
- Eight Bears – 20 spins
- Nine Bears – 22 spins
- Ten Bears – 24 spins
- Eleven Bears – 26 spins
- Twelve Bears – 28 spins
- Thirteen Bears – 30 spins
- Fourteen Bears – 32 spins
- Fifteen Bears – 34 spins
- Sixteen Bears – 36 spins
- Seventeen Bears – 38 spins
- Eighteen Bears – 40 spins
- Nineteen Bears – 42 spins
- Twenty Bears – 45 spins
More wilds are added to the free spins reels and it’s possible to trigger more spins up to a maximum of 250.
Icy Wilds is not a hugely innovative slot but it’s good fun anyway and it’s nice to see an ermine getting involved; there are plenty of spins available and an RTP which ranges from 92.15% – 96.15%.
