Combining sub zero underground caverns with Norse mythology is Ice Cave, the latest pokie from game makers Playtech. With 5 reels and 20 paylines, this chilly pokie offers sticky wilds and the chance to win big. Read our full review below.
What is it about?
The opening screen for this pokie takes you to a vast underground cave which emits a cool blue glow from its frozen walls. You can just make out the tiny silhouettes of two explorers which gives you an idea of the scale of the cave. You are introduced to the Ice Wild and Hammer Wild symbols, the two features which make this pokie what it is...but more on those later.
Once you click to continue, you are taken to the grey stone reels. Within these reels are the snarling wolf Fenrir, a raven, longship, and two figures from Norse mythology; the chief Jarl and the Valkyrie warrior. The other symbols, often depicted as playing card symbols, are shown as ancient symbols, each with its own special meaning. You will find wealth, joy, protection, victory and power as the low win symbols, whilst the main picture symbols give you higher wins.
Choosing your options
If you want to dive right in there, the spin icon is obvious to the right side of the screen, but you may want to look at your betting options first. You can select to play either 10 or 20 lines which can make your total bet between $0.10 and $20.00. If you like to play fast, you can select the Turbo Mode option, which will make the reels spin at a super speed. You also have the option to let the reels spin automatically for a predetermined set of spins or until you trigger a feature, which is handy for those who prefer to sit back and relax.
This Playtech pokie features not one, but two wilds. The first is the Ice Wild, a sticky wild which will stay on screen throughout the spins. The aim is to try and fill the reels with as many Ice Wilds as possible, especially as they act as a 3x multiplier. However, it’s only a matter of time before you spin a Hammer Wild, which will remove all Ice Wilds whilst giving you another 3x multiplier. The Ice Wilds only appear on reels 3 and 4, but you are able to increase this to reel 5 by selecting the Feature Bet option. If you decide to up your chances, you will also be increasing your stake by 1.5.
Ice Cave is a cool pokie that immediately draws you in. The Ice Wilds feature entices you to keep spinning to see how many you can get to stick, and even when the Hammer Wild gets rid of them all, you are still rewarded with a multiplier. It’s even better that you can play it on desktop, tablet and mobile, all whilst being completely free to play too. It's well worth a spin, and there are plenty of of other free pokies available to play too, at Online Pokies 4U.
