You would expect an icy theme to pop up in this game, and you’re correct in thinking along those lines. We cannot recall another game that has chosen ice climbing as a theme, so this is refreshing… if a little chilly!
You can expect to see all the trappings of the ice climbing pastime on the reels. Rival Gaming has added a few neat features too, so let’s find out more about this slot now.
There’s nothing much here you won’t have seen before, with five reels and 20 lines in action.
They’ve given us a one-cent minimum per coin here, along with numerous other coins for those with bigger budgets. More coins can be played on each line too if required, which gives more betting options to choose from too.
There is a crate that can appear on the reels as you play. You’ll know what this is for as it has the letters WILD on the side. Watch for the compass to appear too, as well as the treasure map. These are both scatters – yes, there are two in play here. They might just lead you to a surprise or two as well.
This game includes an Ice Drop feature that occurs whenever matching ice-encased icons trigger a win. Only the ice-encased icons can unlock the Ice Drop, removing themselves from the reels and allowing new ones to fall into their places.
You can secure five, 10, or 25 free games whenever three, four, or five of the compasses appear on the reels. Rival Gaming has been generous with a prize multiplier here too, increasing the value to 3x.
Finally, you can win an instant prize if you can find three treasure maps on the reels in a base game spin. Whenever this occurs, you are prompted to pick a map. It will reveal the prize you have won, before returning you to the main game.
There is a lot to look forward to in the Ice Picks slot game. The Ice Drop feature is made more unusual in that it doesn’t always occur, so you’ll be watching closely to see where those ice blocks appear.
