The overarching theme of Dungeons and Dragons: Treasures of Icewind Dale is that of a snowbound adventure, and the atmospheric sound affects really add to the sparseness and the isolation of the tundra. Orchestral music plays out in the background too, and even the spin button is accompanied by a chiming church bell like sound.
This is truly one of the most immersive fairy tale slot experiences around, and you will find yourself engrossed in the action – which naturally ensures a fantastic replay value.
The reels are manned by a selection of warriors and their weaponry. These fearless heroes are known as Bruenor, Catti-Brie, Drizzt and Wulfgar, although to be honest when you are in the middle of some hectic spinning action these become a bit of a blur (pun intended).
Swords, axes, hammers and bows and arrows make up the rest of the main symbols, while the famed D&D logo acts as the wild, and this will substitute for all other symbols to help you to create those paying combinations.
Stacked to the Rafters
One of the great things about Treasures of Icewind Dale is that it features a fantastic collection of bonus rounds and special features.
Dynamic Stacks – so often overlooked in slot gaming today – offer genuinely good returns if you are lucky enough to get involved. Here a symbol is chosen at random to completely fill a reel: hence, Dynamic Stacks REALLY increases your chances of winning.
There’s a Free Spins bonus feature too, during which you can earn up to an incredible 225 free turns! Hit three of the Bonus symbol on the middle reels and you will trigger this round with 15 freebies, and you will then enter the ice queen’s lair for plenty of chances to win without spending a penny. If you manage to spin another three bonus symbols on the middle reels, you will receive another 15 free spins, and so on and so forth.
On the fifth reel, every once in a while you will come across a dice symbol. If these appear three times then a warrior symbol will be turned wild, and if you then hit 12 wilds then all four of the warrior symbols will go wild and present you with a humongous opportunity to win stacks of cash.
Treasured Slot Action
With its aesthetic good looks and atmospheric sound effects, Dungeons and Dragons: Treasures of Icewind Dale is just sheer good fun to play – and that’s before we’ve even considered the generosity and regularity of the bonus rounds and special features on offer.
With a trademark IGT Free Spins bonus round, Dynamic Stacks and the Dice feature to look out for, these are three brilliant ways to scoop some extra cash aside from the main game. And with a maximum win of 2,500,000 coins, this is a medium to high variance game that offers a fantastic opportunity to scoop some good-sized, regular payouts.
There are few downsides to mention when it comes to Treasures of Icewind Dale, although of course you will need to be aware of the 60p minimum spin should you be betting on a budget or are new to slots and want to try a few games without a big investment.
But all in all, this is a slot game to be treasured and enjoyed. IGT have done it again!
