Somewhat unconventionally, we’re starting off with the gamble option of this game, for it has a quirky quality about it that is exclusive to this title. Instead of merely shoving a staple card game into the mix and calling it quits, the brand has opted for a double or nothing related to the content. The general gist is that you have to guess what lurks inside the ice, a fish or a journal.
Gamers need only select the option they want and the result will appear as the block smashes into bits. Thereafter you either get taken back to the base game, or are allowed to play another round. All in all it’s quite basic, yet interactive enough for you to feel like the initial punt of 0.60 credits is worth the price; the more variance you get for your buck, the better.
End of the Rope
Returning to the base game for now, the only symbol worthy of mentioning is the rope icon, for it’s the scatter. Unlike in Heat Is On where the scatter brought 2-Way Play, this time round you get some free games, with 10 being the maximum you can win at any one time. We much prefer this feature, as it feels more immersive, however it’s not very original in terms of substance.
Once you trigger the feature, you’ll watch as the counter displays how many rounds you have left. As you’d expect with a short lived round such as this one, you can win even more extra games, allowing for a greater volume of free spins. All we can say is that we hope you get a lot of wilds showing up, otherwise no amount of extra games will make this feature stimulating enough.
Seeing as the diversity here isn’t that great, it won’t be long before you’re looking to try out a new real cash slot, and so we suggest Ice Run from Playtech for your next playthrough. Just like Ice World, it’s all about the coldest of elements, and so this is definitely one for those of you that are passionate about the theme first and foremost.
Brought to you by Playtech, you immediately know that you’re getting a high quality game, as well as some variation thanks to the bonus round and free games. However, the downside is that it isn’t mobile friendly, which of course limits when and where you can play. That being said, for a minimal pay-in of just 0.25 credits, we guess you can’t complain at having limited access when the cost is so friendly.
A Whole New World…?
Sadly, unlike Jasmine, we can’t say that Ice World is a new experience that we’re excited about. Initially it looks like it has potential, but then you delve a little deeper and notice that the variance is rather limited; only the gamble option is interactive. Therefore, we’d say this is great for those of you that prefer a hands free kind of experience, but terrible if you want to be fully engaged.
