Icy Wonders is a cute Video Slot with 5 Reels, 30 Pay-Lines and 2 Progressive Jackpots. The progressive jackpots are pooled with the other games in the Wonders’ Series; Tiki Wonders and Geisha Wonders. The theme of Icy Wonders is very much as you’d expect; Polar Bears, Igloos and Inuits are the symbols you will see spinning in for winning combinations and the Penguin symbol is the one you want to see more of in order to unlock the Bonus Round.
With 30 Pay-lines, Icy Wonders offers you more may to win but will also cost more to play. Besides the Progressives, the highest jackpot pay-out is for spinning in 5 Wild symbols (Whale), which will pay out 7,500 credits per coin wagered. The highest paying of the standard reel symbols is the Polar Bear, which will pay-out 1,000 credits per coin wagered.
The Bonus Round is triggered when 3 or more penguins spin in successively on any active pay-line, starting on the leftmost reel. The Bonus Round consists of a simple but entertaining picking game. A number of penguins of different shapes and sizes will appear on screen, each hiding a fish behind their backs. Selecting a penguin will force him or her to reveal their fish, which will then win you a certain amount of credits. You can keep picking penguins and winning credits until you happen to click on one of the naughty penguins which have eaten the fish! This will end the Bonus Game and bring you back to the base game.
The Progressive Jackpots are won by spinning in Yellow Star symbols. 4 Stars will win you the Wonder Jackpot, which is typically 4 figures but which will often run into 5 figures. 5 stars will win you the Mega Wonders Jackpot, which is typically 5 figures but which can climb into 6 figures very often. Of course, the higher the stakes you are playing for, the more likely you are to hit one of these progressives.
The Inuit Scatter symbols can unlock Free Spins if you happen to spin 3 or more of them in, anywhere on screen, not just the active pay-lines. The Free Spins round has an X2 multiplier and you can, of course, unlock more Free Spins if you happen to spin in 3 more Scatter symbols during the Free Spins Round.
While Icy Wonders is cute and entertaining, it is worth noting that the theoretical RTP (Return to Player) for this game is only 93.5%. If you are thinking of spending money on it, perhaps avoid doing so at the maximum stake level, as this might erode your bankroll quicker than you may have hoped.
