Ice Joker slot by Play'n Go is a seasonal game reflective of the Christmas period but at least it's not a silly cloned 'Christmas Edition' which many developers tend to make by re-imaging their existing slots. Ice makes for a cool looking slot usually (no pun!) as with Elk Studios' Ice Wolf slot and IGT's Icy Wilds slot also makes the mark although my favourite is Gamesys' Queen of Winter Wins slot. Here the game is pretty basic with an arctic background and a thermometer on the edge of the reels telling us it's between 0 and -3c. That's global warming for you as it should be a lot colder in this region, but maybe there's another meaning to those figures. So will this game be a joke for our bankroll or will it freeze us right out of the picture?
There are 20 pay lines on Ice Joker slot with symbols appearing in singles or double or triple-stacked. The 5-of-a-kind pays are 50x Red 7, 10x Star, 5x Bar, 2.5x Plum or Grapes and finally 1.5x Lemon or Cherries. The Ice Joker Wild can appear on the middle 3 reels and Snowflake scatters on reels 1, 3 and 5. There are no random modifiers but the Ice Joker Wild will freeze in place when landing and grant 3 re-spins. On the first it expands to 2 rows, the second 3 rows and the last one it disappears but you could retrigger it by landing another. This explains the thermometer which counts them down.
Landing the 3 Snowflake scatters will trigger unlimited free games. You spin a wheel which grants you from 2 to 7 Ice Joker Wilds. If one doesn't land on the reels in the first spin, one of the stored Wilds is added to the grid to get your bonus going. As soon as you run out of Wilds, the next Joker Wild is added to the reels and so-on until you run out of Wilds whether added from your store or appearing naturally. For a change, Play'n Go tell us we can win 3,000x bet as opposed to their usual 5,000x boast.
Ice Joker slot has a 96.205 RTP and is pretty mundane I must say. It's pretty tedious to watch with trite and annoying sounds and music although 2 or 3 Wilds in play at once (rarely) can award a few decent hits. The bonus is frustrating to watch as you are constantly hoping your store of Wilds doesn't get used too fast, and when they are used you are willing another one to come in on the reels too in order to produce some worthwhile hits. If ice is your thing, the joke may be on you if you play this slot...
