Icy Wonders is one of Net Entertainment’s “Wonders Games”, of which there are three. All three share in a progressive jackpot, which gives players an amazing opportunity to win a huge jackpot. In Icy Wonders, you will be frolicking in the snow all your arctic buddies. This is a 5-reel, 30-payline video slot game with multiple bet and coin levels. There is a very entertaining off-the-reel Bonus Game called “Pick Penguins” to enjoy, a Wild symbol plus a Scatter that hands out Free Spins, all making Icy Wonders a whimsical fun and exciting adventure for players of all skill levels, as long as they don’t mind the icy cold temperatures!
You’ll get the feeling of ice cold weather when you see your screen, which appears to be fully engulfed with cool white and blue ice, so there is no doubt about the theme of the game. The lower-valued symbols are the usual playing card symbols of Jack, Queen, King and Ace, all seen as vividly coloured letters inside a frozen block of ice. The higher-valued symbols start with an Igloo, which is the lowest of the higher ones, and then comes a cute Chubby Walrus, then a lively Siberian Husky, with the highest-valued symbol being a cheerful looking Polar Bear with a nice big fish he just caught.
A Whale symbolises the Wild and he can replace all the other symbols, apart from the Jackpot, or the Scatter or the Bonus symbols. When this Whale is triggered, he turns animated, spins around twice while spraying a mist from his blowhole at the top of his rearing head.
The best features in Icy Wonders are the two Progressive Jackpots, which are pooled with the other two “Wonders Games”. If you get 5 Jackpots popping up on your reels you can win the Mega Wonder Jackpot. If you get lucky and have 4 Jackpots popping up you could win the Wonder Jackpot. These progressive jackpots grow by getting a portion of every bet placed and putting it into the total for the jackpot. The more you wager, the better your chances are of a jackpot win. The Flashing Yellow Star is the symbol for the Jackpot and it shows up on a corner of the other symbols during a spin.
A young pretty Eskimo Girl is the Scatter symbol and if you have 3 popping up anyplace on your reels simultaneously this will set off the Free Spins. With 3 Scatters you will get 10 Free Spins, 4 wins you 20 Free Spins, 5 Scatters and you get a whopping 30 Free Spins, and they all come with a 2X multiplier. During the Free Spins mode, you can also win more Free Spins.
Bonuses Included in Icy Wonders Slot
A Penguin wearing a Little Red Hat is the Bonus symbol in Icy Wonders. When you get 3 Penguins popping up on an activated bet line, you enter the “Pick Penguin” Bonus Game. There is a colony of 12 adorable penguins all dressed up in their wintry best. You will poke each of them, one after the other, with your pointer, which is a mitten. Each little penguin will then bring out a fish he’s been holding behind his back to reveal a number over his head, which tells you how many bonus coins you've just won. The game comes to an end when a penguin shows up displaying a fish skeleton.
