Visit a magical frozen forest where an Ice Princess and her animal friends are waiting to meet you.

The animated Disney movie Frozen was such a big hit all over the world when it was released back in 2013 that its success is still being felt today as software developers continue to make games based on the magical fairytale theme of the film. This game is clearly inspired by Frozen as it is set in a cold wintery forest where an Ice Princess roams the land accompanied by some magical creatures. So get ready to wrap up warm and meet the Ice Princess and see if you can break the spell of the frozen forest.

It is a 5 reel slot game with 50 paylines that includes Stacked Symbols and Free Spins.

Special Features

The first thing to mention is that all of the symbols in this game can appear stacked on the reels. For example, if any of the crown, ring, heart necklace, snow leopard, snow owl, or ermine symbols fill an entire reel then they will act as a full stack of wilds for the next spin. Make sure to make each spin count when you have a stacked wild reel, the symbols will return to their original form on the next spin. The Wild symbol is illustrated by the word “Wild” in bright pink and purple colours. It substitutes for all other symbols in the game except the Free Spins symbol.

The highest paying symbol in the game is, of course, the Ice Princess and if you manage to land 5 of these symbols across the reels then you will be awarded a fantastic 500X your original wager. Be sure to keep an eye out for this symbol as you spin the reels,

You can trigger the Free Spins game by landing 3 or Free Spins symbols on at least 3 different reels. The Free Spins symbol is depicted by a beautiful white polar bear. It goes without saying, that the more Free Spins symbols you land, the more Free Spins you will be awarded. Landing 3 of these symbols will give you 10 Free Spins and for every additional Free Spins symbol after that, another 2 Free Spins will be added to your tally. Amazingly, it is possible to win up to 45 Free Spins in this game if you are lucky enough to land 20 Free Spins symbols.

Theme and Graphics

The graphics are wonderful to look at and really evoke a frozen chilly atmosphere as you play the game. The backdrop of the slot is the famous Northern Lights illuminating a crystal clear sky with a bunch of snow-capped trees in the distance. Symbols consist of the Ice Princess and a variety of animals and jewellery. The symbols are beautifully detailed and they animate superbly with some excellent 3D effects when you land a win along the reels.

The music is slow, easy to listen to and very enchanting. It is very reminiscent of old fairytale cartoons and it complements the theme of the game really well.

Our Verdict on Icy Wilds

Icy Wilds is created by IGT and it's a decent enough slot to play with a very clever theme. Although it does not contain too many features, the Free Spins game can be highly lucrative when triggered especially when you land some stacked Free Spins symbols which will lead to even more Free Spins for you to use. The game is of medium to high variance so patience and a large bankroll are key when it comes to landing a big payout across the reels.
