Icy Wonders Overview
Icy Wonders by Net Entertainment is a 5 reel, 3 row, 30 bet line slot machine. It offers scatter wins, wild substitutes, free spins, a bonus game, and two progressive jackpots. It has a maximum jackpot of 60,000 coins on a single bet line, with a return to player frequency of 93.5%. Icy Wonders’ theme is a mixture of arctic and Antarctic. NetEnt has melded penguins with Eskimos, sperm whales, huskies, frozen playing cards, polar bears, and walruses into the game play. The penguins are important for the bonus round, which leads to a pick and choose game versus the free spins and wild substitutes.
Game Controls The game has a video display area, which shows the main game, free spins, and bonus games. There is a paytable with a feature preview, as well as the game panel that provides the menu, game rules, autoplay, and betting options. The bet lines determine the number of paylines you want to play, while the bet level can be increased by one. The coin value sets a specific bet, while the maximum bet is the highest bet. With 30 bet lines, it is possible to win on a horizontal line, as well as with staggered symbols.
Icy Wonders Game Play Icy Wonders has several bonus features including the wild substitution symbol. The wild is a Sperm Whale, which substitutes all icons except the bonus and scatter symbols. To help you, NetEnt has labeled it wild.
Scatters provide multiplied winnings, as well as access to the free spins. If you have 3 or more Eskimo Girl symbols on an active payline you earn 10, 20, or 30 free spins. The free spins are based on 3, 4, or 5 symbols, respectively. In free spin mode the wins are multiplied 2 times.
The two progressive jackpots are Mega Wonder and Wonder. The mega wonder jackpot pays out up to $250,000. The second jackpot has a cap at $10,000. The jackpots are randomly won. The more a player wagers the greater the chance of winning the jackpot will be. The jackpot is based on stars, where small stars will overlay the symbols on the reels, becoming larger and animated to reveal which jackpot has been won.
Outside of the jackpot, the highest payout is for 5 polar bears holding a fish. Five of these symbols earns 1,000 coins.
Icy Wonders also has a Penguin Bonus Game. Three or more penguin bonus symbols on an active payline will reveal the game. A penguin colony will fill the screen, where players get to pick a penguin. Each one will reveal a bonus amount. The penguin with a fish pays a bonus, while the penguins with a fish-bone will end the bonus round.
