Winter and summer both have their advantages and disadvantages. In the summer you can spend more time outdoors soaking up the sun and topping up your Vitamin D levels and your tan. You can enjoy holidays and BBQs and extra hours of daylight. The downside is the unbearable heat, sleepless nights, hay fever and of course the annual insect invasion. Winter offers us warm food in front of a roaring fire, snow and Christmas, but it also throws days of gloom, drizzle, icy nights and mornings, extended darkness and seasonal flu. However, when it comes to slot games, winter definitely has the edge over summer, for choice and general game quality – play at Slots Baby. Here are some winter themed slot games that ooze seasonal atmosphere.
Icy Wilds Slot
Winter is the perfect freezing setting for IGT’s Icy Wilds. It’s a 5-reel slot that has 50 paylines and lots of snow and ice. This slot is available to play on desktops Android and iOS devices. The star of this slot is the Ice Queen herself and she is the most valuable of all the symbols. When she lands on the reels she does so as a full-length stacked symbol. She also carries a 2x, 25x 100x and 500x multiplier, depending on how many of her fall on the reels. Five Ice Queen symbols come with a 500x multiplier. The low paying symbols here are the usual playing card ones. The higher valued symbols include the snowy owl and the snow leopard. Higher valued still are the symbols related to the Ice Queen’s possessions that include a ring, pendant and crown. The wilds from the title can drop anywhere and if you drop a stack of snow leopards, crowns, snow owls, the ermine, pendant or the ring, then the stack will turn wild for the next spin. To activate the free spins bonus round, you need 9 or more polar bears to land on the reels. Icy Wilds is an atmospheric slot set in the depths of the frozen north and well worth a spin.
