I’ve played Ice and Fire slot for a few hours and liked it, so I’ll give you my honest opinion about this slot and about its pros and cons. Even if this game does things a bit differently, it’s actually good for you, as, for example, you get to play 120 paylines while paying only for 40. Some players will also enjoy the fact that they’re playing two huge 5×5 boards with 50 total symbols on them. Anyway, let’s go through the details of this game.
Main game and paytable
This game is out of the ordinary, and that’s noticeable as soon as you start the game. You’ll see two 5×5 boards side by side, the blue one on the left representing Ice and the red one on the right representing Fire. Each board has 60 paylines, so that’s a total of 120 across these two boards, but you only pay 40 coins to play those 120 paylines.
Also, whenever you land a winning combination, the symbols involved will explode and new symbols will fall from above, helping you win again. These cascades or re-spins can go on and on, for as long as you form at least one new winning combination on the board. Ice and Fire boards act separately, but Wilds will always be copied from one board to another, helping you win more.
The paytable itself is very skinny, as you might have suspected, and there are a lot of symbols, too. There are five card symbols which all pay only 5 coins for three-of-a-kind, which means you’re getting 1/8 of your total bet. For five-of-a-kind you can win up to 20 coins, which is half your bet. Of five high-win symbols, only the best one even has the potential of paying more than your bet, and in this case you’ll get 80 coins or 2x your total bet. All other winning combinations either just give you your stake back or a fraction of it. But this is expected, as this game usually delivers multiple winning combinations on the same spin. This game has a way of delivering enough wins to keep your balance positive, and is therefore a low variance game you can play with little risk.
When you land three or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the two boards, you’ll trigger the free spins game with 10 free spins. The free spins are almost identical to the main game, and the only difference – an important one – is that the reel strips contain more Wilds, which means it’s more likely you’ll form a winning combination or more than one.
