Mr Green Casino has just added the latest slot from ELK Studios titled Ice Wolf which is an unusual 6×3 reel slot with an addtional 6×3 reels above it that are initially frozen solid but will also come into play after scoring wins on the regular base reels below.
The backstory to this slot is that you are climbing a mountain to reach the infamous Ice Wolf peak hence the frozen reels, chilly setting and of course wolves.
Whilst Ice Wolf doesn’t come with a regular triggerable bonus round there are a number of special features built into this slot that certainly makes it feel like a bonus round when they do occur.
The first point worth noting is that this slot is packed with insane win potential (up to 2500x stake!), as you spin the reels and start to land winning combination you will notice a variety of special modifiers above the reels being held in place, these can include wild symbols, multipliers up to 50x! and extra spins. However, all of these special features will only become active once the ice has been fully removed from that particular reel.
The regular hit frequency of this slot also seems quite low, so it’s worth taking note that you should expect lots of dead spins and adjust your bet size accordingly if you really want to give this slot a fair chance of seeing its full potential, ELK has pitched this as an 8/10 volatility rating and you really do need to be patient with the dead spins to fully appreciate this title.
As well as all of the unlockable bonuses on the top of the reels there is also a Wolfpack feature, which is triggered by the special wolf symbol landing in view, this will clear out a reel of ice fully and replace all symbols with wilds for that spin.
Ice Wolf really comes to life once you have started to chip away at the upper reel sets ice, increasing the number of winning ways on the reels, adding extra multipliers to your wins, extra wilds and even extra spins to help out too.
