It is time for you to venture high into the Arctic circle and take up residence with the local Eskimo tribes as you spin the reels on Playtech's Ice Run slot machine, which brings with it a lot of cool reel symbols and features that can heat things up a bit.
Ice Run is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot that adopts a frozen polar tundra theme. It is presented in a cartoonish style that makes a bleak area of the world seem a lot more hospitable than it is in reality. The game's symbols are as follows (from low to high): 9, 10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace, jumping fish, bonfire, seal, Eskimo woman, sled dogs, an igloo, and an Eskimo man. These symbols are overlaid over frigid ocean water that includes a couple of distant icebergs.
Feature wise, Ice Run includes free spins, wild symbols, expanding wilds, and a pick'em game. The pick'em game is set off when the sled dogs are unveiled on reels 1 and 5, and players can select snowmen for cash prizes and igloos for win multipliers. The free spins round is triggered when three or more igloo symbols are unveiled on the reels. The last feature present is that expanding wild icebreaker, which comes into play when the male Eskimo character is unveiled on the third reel. This expanding wild can actually expand horizontally as well if there are other male Eskimo symbols on reels 2 and 4, making for some potentially big wins.
Playing Ice Run, I thought that the slot's features were a bit sparse and that they didn't come up often enough for my liking. Because of that, Ice Run isn't my favourite slot from Playtech, but it certainly isn't the worse I have seen either.
