Boasting a unique 4×5 reel format where any five adjacent matching symbols award an instant win, Icy Cool introduces players to a posse of fun-loving penguins who, when grouped together, have the power to award some of the game’s biggest payouts. Of course, due to Boldplay’s popular cascading wins mechanic, players’ initial prize will be kept on ice as the winning symbols shatter and disappear from view, with new ones dropping down to take their place and potentially boost the cumulative win.
Any number of symbol cascades can take place during each round – with the current spin only ending when no new wins are created – and to help players on their way to an avalanche of frozen prizes, the Icy Cool logo also acts as a wild that can substitute for any regular symbol to complete potential clusters. Not only that, but at the start of each spin one reel space will be highlighted at random and, if a wild lands in this position, all icons on adjacent reels also have the chance to transform into wilds.
Speaking of this frosty new addition to the Boldplay line-up, head of design Marcus Taylor said: “With the combination of cluster pays and cascading wins having already proved incredibly popular with players, we’re delighted to be able to make a new Antarctic addition to the genre with our latest slot, Icy Cool.
“In the game, matching any four adjacent symbols will result in an instant win as the icons shatter and disappear from view, with new ones dropping down from above to take their place. In this manner, players can unlock an avalanche of cascading wins on any given spin, with the presence of special squares that add further wilds to the reels also helping them on their way to a flurry of frozen prizes.”
