The idea behind Ice Crystals from Slotland is a simple one, but it is also very effective. You will see various ice crystals of different colors on the screen, and your task, as always, is to try and find matching ones to win prizes on the lines included.
But does Ice Crystals offer anything else? Is this game good to pass the time for a short while or will it be a keeper?
The game offers a 5 x 4-reel format with 50 paylines.
Your bet amounts are given at the bottom of the game screen, so you merely need to choose which one you are happy with. Will you wager 50, 100, 200, 400 or 1,000 coins on each spin? You are therefore playing one coin minimum per line, with the coin value always set at a cent.
There are plenty of assorted crystals in play here, but you will also spot a frozen-looking W that indicates you have found a wild symbol. This is interesting because it doesn’t just act in the normal manner to replace other symbols in helping to create wins.
Remember that wild? It turns out you need one – yep, just one – to win yourself some free spins. When it appears, you are awarded some free spins according to the position the W appeared in. Basically, the higher it appears, the better – this is because the arrow behind the W will get one position longer with each free spin. When the arrow reaches the bottom of that reel, your free spins are over.
That means you won’t get many, but there is another feature to mention that enhances your free games. You also get a multiplier that begins at x1 and increases with each free spin, reaching a maximum of x4. But even that is not all – if extra wilds appear, their arrows will also progress to the bottom of their reels, giving you extra free spins to enjoy as well.
At first glance, Ice Crystals seems to be a basic slot. However, that single wild does a great job of enhancing the game to a level where you’ll want to give it a try.
