Northern Lights is situated in the furthest point of the North Pole. Ice mountains reach up and almost touch the sky, an igloo sits chillingly on the snow and an Eskimo and a white polar bear live in harmony with each other. The top of the slot machine is where you will find the beautiful sky with various mystical colours of pinks, purples and blues.
Players with a small bankroll can stake as little as 0.25 a spin, whilst those with a high rolling account can stake up to a maximum of 250.00 a turn. In terms of features, you will encounter scatters, wilds and a bonus game whilst playing – but not only that, there’s a 6,000-coin non-progressive jackpot waiting to be triggered.
To adjust your bets, you simply use the controls on the panel to the lower of the reels. Symbols that you will find on the reels are; polar bear, Aurora Borealis, Eskimo, killer whale, igloo, seal and card values of 9, 10, J, Q, K and A.
Ice Cool Winnings
Five of a kind of the polar bear symbols on any of your win lines, will trigger that 6,000-coin jackpot. Depending on the amount of cash your stake per spin, will determine the amount of cash you receive in return, so those playing maximum stakes will return a bigger cash sum than those playing minimum stakes.
Eskimo will reward your bankroll with 3,000 coins for a payline full whilst the killer whale will splash a decent 1,000 coins into your bankroll when you land five of a kind.
Simple Slot Features
You won’t find a great deal of slot features to the Northern Lights slot machine, but what you do have are:
- Wild: the polar bear is your wild. Polar bears can substitute for all other symbols (except for scatter) to complete winning combinations where they otherwise may have been missed.
- Scatter: Aurora Borealis is your scatter symbol. You only need to get at least two in view to receive a cash prize – the more you have in view, the more cash your bankroll will receive.
- Bonus game: Land 3 or more scatter symbols on your reels to activate the bonus game. Choose one of the icebergs for your polar bear to leap onto. For every successful leap that the polar bear makes, you will receive a cash prize. The bonus game will end when the polar bear misjudges the leap and lands in the water. You can win up to 2,000x your stake for every successful jump you make.
Chillingly Good Slots
There are just a handful of online slot machines that offer a winter-themed design and Polar Bash slot game from Microgaming will leave you shivering with the amount of cash on offer. The 5 reel, 20 payline slot dishes out free spins, a bonus feature and a maximum non-progressive jackpot of 240,000 coins. There’s a col party taking place on the reels and you’re invited to join the snowman and the gang as they celebrate the winning features on offer.
Is It Cool?
We found Northern Lights slot machine to be a relatively basic online slot game with limited features. Aside from wilds and scatter, you have a bonus round – but this only requires you to pick an item – there’s no skill involved and it can be over as soon as it’s triggered.
This medium variance slot game will offer plenty of base game wins to keep your bankroll topped up, but the bonus game is much harder to get your hands on. The maximum cash will fall during the bonus game – thanks to the 2,000x multiplier that can be awarded on each jump.
