Ice and Fire Theme/Symbols
The action in Ice and Fire takes place on 2 distinct sets of reels, both of which offer 5 reels and 60 paylines each (that’s 10 reels and 120 paylines in total). On the reels are A to 10 royals plus an assortment of fire or ice themed objects and animals. The Ice and Fire Queen are the most rewarding symbols. These pay up to 53.33 x stake if you land 5 on a payline.
The magical book of spells is the wild. Land one of these on 1 set of reels and it will duplicate so it appears on the equivalent position on the other set. This is known as the Shared Wilds feature.
After a winning combination strikes, the successful symbols are removed from play and new symbols replace them. A payout calculation then follows. The process is repeated as long as a new winner is formed. This is called the Cascading Symbols feature as can be found in many slot games.
Cascading Reel Free Spins
Get on a run of at least 4 successive cascading reel wins and you’ll trigger the Free Games feature. First choose either the fire or ice dragon. This will reveal 8, 10 or 15 free spins complete with 100 or 150 extra wilds that are added to the reels. The cascading reels are in play here too. Land 4 winning cascades in a row for a re-trigger meaning up to 30 free spins in total.
Multiplier Free Spins
The second round, the Multiplier feature, is triggered by landing 3 or more scatters across both the ice and fire reels on the same spin. You’ll then receive 10 free spins (with 5 more added for each scatter on the triggering spin) meaning up to 25 free spins initially. Boosting your winning chances here is a multiplier which increases by 1x with each cascade win – with no limits. Re-triggers are possible here too.
19,139 x stake wins
Yggdrasil Gaming has delivered another very playable fantasy-themed slot in Ice and Fire. The design is as classy as we’ve come to expect from this developer and there’s gameplay to match courtesy of the split reels, cascading wins, duplicating wilds and free spins with wild and multiplier extras.
Game of Thrones has a lot to answer for as far as dragon-themed slots go. Ice and Fire is one of the better ones and certainly worth a look if you like the theme. You can win up to 19,139 x stake on each multiplier free spin too which is superb – the RTP stands at 96.64% which is high.
