Designed and developed by Gaming Right Media this game acts like a slot but in no way even resembles a slot machine. The format of the slot has been determined by the cold wintry theme with a festive feel-good element to it. Our winning combinations are made out of the five piles of ice blocks neatly stacked together to form 3 rows against snow covered slopes amidst the bare branches of the nearby trees. Each perfectly crafted ice block contains a symbol.
The graphics in this game are nothing short of what you would expect from this software provider who believes in innovation and modern technology. The images are detailed without overloading. The holiday tune and commentators voice can be turned on or off and the game speed has 3 settings for you to adjust to an enjoyable level.
As the game opens the dealer calls for bets to be placed. Before clicking on spin decide on the coin size by clicking the left and right arrows and click max bet to activate all paylines. This places a coin on each payline. All winning combinations are made by how many of the same symbols appear in a row on the same payline from left to right. Want to double the risk and double the payout? Simply activate the Two Ways Feature. For that extra coin Two Ways will pay out winning combinations from left to right and right to left.
The bet sizes are as small and consistent as the wins. For players that enjoy regular payouts this game is both fun and entertaining. The maximum bet is $42 - 42 chances to hit a winning combination on each spin.
The symbols are a variation of the holiday winter theme ranging from Christmas trees to hibernating polar bears. There is a pair of ice-skates, a sledding squirrel and the ice hockey champion. This symbol is the kicker and will pay the jackpot of 5000 coins for 5 of these on any payline.
The North Pole lamp post is the scatter symbol. As the reels spin the bulb at the top lights up and goes dim once the spin is over. The scatter pays no matter where on the reels they fall. A minimum of 2 scatters will open up the bonus round.
The wild symbol is the set of three 6-sides snowflakes which are also animated. The wild stands in for any other symbol and 5 of these on the same payline will pay out the highest prize on the paytable.
Just 2 North Pole lamp posts send you off to a frozen lake where the Pappa bear and baby bear are fishing through a hole in the ice for dinner. They are trying to fill the bucket with fish big enough to eat. On the left hand side are the multipliers. Starting off at 2 times you move up the scale with each successful round. Right off the bat the player is offered a prize or the chance to double that amount and play. Once selecting play Pappa bear casts off into the hole. If he catches a small fish, he has to throw it back for another shot at the prize. Fish out an old shoe and all the money is lost.
The bonus round is lots of fun, see how long you can last and how much cash you can add to your balance. With small bets and a large jackpot you cannot go wrong with this warm and fuzzy winter game. Play Winter Fest today for a shot at cool winnings.
