Ready to head out into the arctic with Polar Explorer, a 5-reel, 25 payline game from the team at RTG? Get your parka and gloves on as you prepare to brave the elements as you go for the jackpot in this game that also offers up a whole slew of cool and unusual features.
Polar Explorer information
It may seem like a bit of departure from other slot games, but Polar Explorer actually offers up just a ton of features. There are three different bonus rounds, and the key to triggering them is to line up the middle three reels so that the background behind the symbols makes a complete snowflake pattern. If you manage that, the game will randomly award you with one of the bonus rounds. The Explorer feature is 5 free spins, during which the 4th and 5th reels are completely wild. You can re-trigger another 5 free spins if 3 or more scatter ship symbols come up. The Discovery feature however awards 8 free spins, during which there is always at least one wild somewhere on the reels. That's just the tip of the iceberg. The Hidden Treasure feature has you picking treasure chests inside an ice cave. They can reveal game symbols that are then replaced with wilds during the following 8 free spins.
There are also a couple more unconventional things going on here. First, if you look up in the upper right-hand corner then you will see a percentage meter. After every spin it will fill up a little bit. It fills up more with the more money that you put on the line. Once it fills up, you automatically enter one of the randomly picked aforementioned bonuses. You can also take a gamble as the feature guarantee meter shows you your chance of winning an immediate bonus round if you choose to do so. Whether you succeed or fail, the meter will be reset to 0 after your gamble.
