What’s The Deal?
The Frozen Gems slot from Play’n GO (the team behind games such as the Rise of Athena slot and other classics) comes with ice-cool wins of up 10,000x your bet, plus some pretty unusual game play…
It’s cold out there (at least it looks chilly wherever this icy game is set), so grab your scarf and mittens and let’s spin.
Graphics & Theme
Your backdrop is a frozen wilderness, while the reels are full of icons made from icicles and some ornate-looking gems. I should think even our Spanish friend in the Gonzo’s Gold slot would be intrigued.
You’ll also see that above each frigid reel is a bonus feature hiding under ice but more on that later…
Throw in a calming soundtrack with the odd crackle of ice and you’ve got yourselves one good-looking slot! It´s not as colourful as something like the Sweet Bonanza slot but then it’s chilly out there!
There are 4 premium symbols and they are represented by sparkling gemstones in hues of amber, ruby, sapphire and emerald.
Your lower value icons are 10, J, Q, K and A playing cards. The elaborate golden ‘W’ is the wild symbol, while the diamond snowflake is the scatter.
Frozen Gems Slot Game Play
Frozen Gems slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 243 Ways to Win and you can spin with Play’n GO’s standard bet range from 0.20 to 100.00 per go.
This is a medium-high variance, which makes a nice change for Play’n GO, and the possible max win is around 10,000x your bet.
Frozen Gems Reel Modifiers
The base game play is a bit out of the ordinary, so you’ll need to listen carefully to this bit: Above the reels you’ll see x2, x3 and a W icons -fill the meter with 3x of the diamond symbols then you’ll activate these reel modifiers:
W – all symbols on the corresponding reel transform into Wilds
x2 – all symbols on that reel split into two giving you 6 matching symbols
X3 – all symbol splits on the reel split into three mini-symbols giving you 9 matching symbols.
Fully expanded, with all the reels split by 9, there can be 8,748 ways to win on offer. Which is pretty bonza…
Frozen Free Spins
Hit 3x of the snowflake scatter symbols on the same spin and you’ll be awarded 9 Free Spins. Next, each scatter that hits the reels during play will give you another free spin – and you can also re-trigger the bonus an unlimited number of times!
During play, the reel modifiers are still active, and best of all, you’ll be given a win multiplier that will increase by x1 on each winning cascade, with no upper limit.
Play’n GO’s Frozen Gems slot features some unique and varied gameplay, which is always a winner in our book. We love the x3 split symbols feature, especially if it’s activated in the Free Spins Bonus round.
Wombat score: 4.7/5
