With a decidedly chilly theme, Arctic Adventure is a five reel 20 payline video slot from Ash Gaming. This slot clearly has a polar setting and the ice blue hues alongside igloos and frozen reels really bring the scene to life.
The main character symbols in this game take the form of a penguin, a white wolf, a deer, a walrus and a sharp-toothed polar bear. The others are classic playing card symbols carved from ice blocks. The polar bear is the Wild Symbol and the Scatter takes the form of a silver coin. This triggers the free spins feature.
Free Spins Feature
Getting three or more scatters across the reels on any one spin leads players into the free spins round. Get three scatters and you’ll receive seven free spins, four scatters earns you 12 free spins and if you’re lucky enough to get five scatters then you’ll be rewarded with 20 free spins. What sets this round apart is that any wilds that were on the reels in the base game remain there for the free spins and any that appear during the free spins will also stay frozen in place.
Lock and Spin Feature
The Lock and Spin feature is a button on the bottom corner that allows players to freeze the polar bear wild symbol in place whenever it appears on the reels. You can also increase the multiplier for that symbol by using the buttons beside the icon. However, it’s worth noting that the more locked wilds you have on the screen and the higher the multiplier, the more your next bet will cost.
Play Your Way
In addition to the Lock and Spin feature, Arctic Adventure offers players the chance to click on any symbol to turn it wild. You also have the option to change the multipliers. You can turn every symbol wild if you wish but bear in mind that the Return to Player mode remains the same.
Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure is a nicely animated game that is a pleasure to play. The Lock and Spin and Play Your Way features give the game a level of player interaction that isn’t always present in video slots and introduces an element of skill as well as luck.
