Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure slot game is produced by Ash Gaming, and is a sequel to the popular Wild Gambler slot game, which is about an African safari.
This slot takes place in the Arctic, so there is a polar background of ice and snow, and a freezing northern sea. Even the lower value symbols, the standard playing cards from ten to the ace, have been carved out of blocks of ice.
This game has five reels and twenty pay lines. The symbols with the highest value are the Penguin, a White Wolf, a Walrus and a Deer, and the sharp toothed Polar Bear. The Polar Bear is the Wild symbol, and as such can substitute for any other symbol in the game to complete a winning combination, apart from the Scatter. The Scatter symbol is a Silver Coin, and this symbol will trigger the free spins bonus game. The top reward in the Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure slot is one thousand coins, and this is the award for finding five Polar Bears on an active pay line.
Ash Gaming’s Innovative Lock and Spin Function
The Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure slot offers players a novel feature that Ash Gaming introduced in the previous Wild gambler slot game. This is the Lock and Spin feature. If you find the Polar Bear wild anywhere on the reels, you have the option of locking it on to the reels, by clicking on the appropriate button in the bottom corner of the screen. You can also increase the multiplier by clicking on the small arrows on the Wild itself. If you find a Polar Bear on a Wild that is already frozen, the multiplier will be increased by one. You have the chance to multiply your line wins up to five times. With every Wild that you freeze, however, your bet cost will also increase. Of course, the higher the bet, the better chance of a payout you will have, and also the higher will be that payout.
There is also a feature called Play Your Way, and this is an extension of the Lock and Spin option, and in this feature you can click on a symbol at any point in the game, and turn it into a Wild. This will increase your multiplier again, but also will be at an increased price. Every symbol can be turned into a Wild, if you wish, but that does increase your bet cost again.
A Lucrative Free Spins Round
The Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure slot offers players a free spins round as well. This is triggered by landing three or more Scatters. Three Scatters appearing will win you seven free spins, and four Scatters will give you twelve free spins. If you manage to find five Scatters on the reels, you will be given twenty free spins. All multipliers and frozen Wilds will remain in place throughout this bonus round, and if more Wilds appear during a spin, they will also remain locked in place for the duration of the free spins round.
The strategy in the Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure slot revolves around the locking Wilds. When you decide to use this feature, remember that Wilds in the first couple of reels are more useful than if they appear on reel five. As in many games at pokies casinos NZ, graphics and sound are top quality in this game, and the level of interaction makes it unique.
