Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure is a new online slot from Ash Gaming and slots aficionados out there won’t need telling that this is a sequel to the ever popular Wild Gambler, a game with an African safari theme. Arctic Adventure has a polar theme and it also includes manually lockable wilds which introduces some genuine strategy into the gameplay.
Arctic Adventure is a five reel and twenty payline slot which includes a cast of polar characters and an environment so icy you might need to turn the heating up. Behind the icy reels there’s a Arctic seascape and the minor symbols are blocks of ice carved into playing card letters.
The main character symbols are a penguin, a white wolf, a deer, a walrus and a sharp-toothed polar bear. The polar bear is wild and there’s a silver coin scatter symbol which triggers the free spins.
Lock & Spin
We’ll start by explaining what the Lock & Spin feature is then – there are two aspects to it as follows:
- Lock & Spin – every time you land a wild polar bear symbol you have the option to freeze it in place using the button in the bottom right hand corner. You can also increase the multiplier associated with that wild by clicking on the small arrows on the symbol itself.
- There’s always a ‘but’ of course and the more locked wilds you have and the greater the multiplier, the more the next bet will cost.
- Play Your Way – This is an extension of the Lock & Spin feature and essentially at any point you can click on a symbol and turn it wild, increasing the multiplier at the same time if you wish. Every symbol can be wild if you like but don’t forget that the RTP (Return To Player) always remains the same.
Three, four or five of the coin scatter symbols will reward you with 7, 12 or 20 free spins respectively. Wilds will remain in place and any new ones will freeze for the duration of the spins.
Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure Online Slot Playing Tips
All the strategy in the slot revolves around the locking wilds and we think the best piece of advice is to study the symbols and decide when best to use the feature. Don’t forget that a wild is always more useful in the first couple of reels than on reel five.
The Lock & Spin feature adds a level of user interaction to this slot which is missing from so many others and that makes it a compelling game to play. The graphics and animations are high quality so don’t miss out.
