Did the Legend of the Ice Dragon Slot Give Us the Chills or Did We Have An "Icy Blast"?

The Legend of the Ice Dragon is a 7x7 grid cascading slot game. A forthcoming release from Play'n GO,  due for official release on the 4th of November 2021.

If there is one style of slot Play'n GO do consistently well, then it's the grid-based tumbling reels ones, with an almost puzzle-game feel to them. In reality, it is still a slot where you press spin and hope for the best from a multitude of special features occurring on the screen.

The Ice Dragon slot has a very familiar feel to it. Look back at their previous release, Wild Frames. You can see that this slot shares most of the same gameplay and features. The Wild Frames feature has been renamed to Ice Frames here.

That said, the graphics, soundtrack, voiceovers, and general polish have all been improved, with an entirely different mythical dragon theme and suitably themed wintery, chilling, frozen set of special features.

Legend of the Ice Dragon - Base Gameplay

The basic gameplay of Legend of the Ice Dragon involves landing a succession of wins. Wins occur when a cluster of 5 or more symbols is on the grid. The biggest clusters of high paying symbols awards wins of 500x.

Wins can be multiplied by the Ice Frames wilds up to 8x, awarding single wins of 4000x and a capped maximum win of 6000x.

When wins occur, these symbols are removed and collected into the collection meter, the reels cascade and new symbols drop in from the top. The cascading or tumbling reels feature continues until no further wins can be created.

Reaching various checkpoints on this collection meter unleashes a whole host of unique features, which will assist you in collecting other symbols unlocking more powerful special features and helping in the collection process.

Ice Frames

The Wild symbols are of particular importance in this slot. Not only do they do the obvious of helping create wins on the grid.

When the Wilds form part of a winning cluster, they leave a sticky Ice Frame on the reel further. If this process is repeated with other wilds, then the Ice Frame with gain a multiplier value.

The Multiplier value on the Ice Frames increases by 1x each time and can reach a maximum value of 8x. They are persistent on the reels during a game round.

Freezing Features

Three unique Freezing features can be triggered randomly during play, and these will only occur on a non-winning spin. Think of it almost like a second chance of gaining a win when these mini-features do trigger.

  • Hailstorm - One symbol type on the grid is chosen. 3 of the selected symbols each have five random symbols adjacent to them either transformed into Wilds or destroyed. 1-3 Wilds can be revealed per cluster, with 3-9 Wilds in total
  • Avalanche - 2 symbol types are selected randomly, all instances of those symbols on the grid are removed. 3-7 Wilds appear where symbols were removed
  • Blizzard - 2-5 symbols in the pattern formed can transform into Wilds.

Legend of the Ice Dragon Special Features

Whilst there is no main bonus feature as such on this slot, there are a lot of unique features. During play, the key aims are to collect many successive wins to fill up the collection meter, create lots of Ice Frames, and hopefully multiplier values on these frames.

Finally reaching the Dragon Blast feature (with Overcharged extra symbols) and hoping for a large stack of connected wilds on the grid with multipliers in play and hopefully come premium connected symbols.

While this sounds confusing, the gameplay is quite simple once you understand the Ice Frames, Multipliers and Collection Meter and how they all interact.

Collection Meter

The Collection Meter is a key feature to the Legend of the Ice Dragon slot, it stores up all of the symbols that have been collected from wins, at certain colour coded thresholds 20, 40, 60, 80 symbols will unleash the most powerful special features on this slot.

These features all help to create further wins and Ice frames, fill up the meter further with the aim of reaching the most powerful Dragon Blast feature at the end.

Wild Symbols

The Wild symbols appear naturally on the grid but can also be added from the base game features and the more powerful features from filling up the collection meter.

Their primary role is to help create wins, but possibly even more important when they do this they leave behind the Icy Frames. As noted earlier Icy Frames can gain multiplier values up to 8x from successive wins and these are sticky or persistent while the game round is playing out.

Treasure Chest Wild Symbol

The special Treasure Chest wild symbol only comes into play during the Dragon Blast feature (80+ Symbols collected) and is added to every single Icy Frame that has been created up to this point, the multipliers created are also activated at this time.

This special symbol is like the grand finale feature of this slot, signified by the treasure chest symbol, reaching this point is pretty much like completing the bonus round on a regular slot.

Ice Crystal Features

This slot's most powerful special features are triggered by filling up the Ice Crystal Charger (collection meter). Winning symbols fill the Ice Crystal Charger with colour-coded checkpoints at 20, 40, 60 and 80 charges that trigger the Tail Lash, Ice Scorch Destruction, and Dragon Blast features.

  • TAIL LASH turns all high-paying symbols into one type of high-paying symbol.
  • ICE SCORCH transforms 3 to 6 random symbols into Wilds.
  • DESTRUCTION removes all low-paying symbols on the grid.
  • DRAGON BLAST turns all the symbols with Ice Frames on the grid into Wilds and activates all Ice Frame Multipliers.


The key to the most significant wins comes from overcharging the Ice Crystal Charger. Every additional 10 charges after 80 overcharges the meter and adds an extra two ice frames when the Dragon Blast feature finally triggers.


The paytable displayed below shows the premium win symbol payouts based on a €5 stake size. These cluster pays for connected symbols on the grid and does not include any possible multiplier values gained from the Icy Frames.

Factor in that the maximum win cap on this slot is 6000x stake, which is well below what this slot could achieve if a win cap weren't in place, especially with 8x multipliers in play being applied to multiple symbols and wilds.

Legend of the Ice Dragon Slot Final Opinions

As a standalone release, Legend of the Ice Dragon is a perfectly acceptable slot. The main issue is that it is pretty much a clone of the Wild Frames slot in terms of gameplay and features. There are a few subtle differences in the mini features and a lot more graphical polish and slickness to this release, but it’s a very similar slot at the core.

The overall theme of Legend of the Ice Dragon is superb, with lots of ice and wintery special features such as Blizzard, Hailstorm and Avalanche all working very nicely in the base game to keep things intereting.

In our playtests, we did manage some excellent wins, particularly from the final Dragon Blast feature, which becomes even more potent when the collection meter is Overcharged, adding further treasure chests onto the grid for this grand finale feature.

Overall it boils down to firstly, if you enjoy playing these grid-based slots. Whether Ice Frame Multipliers appeal to you, the theme of an Icy Dragon and well themed special features certainly beat the generic Wild Frame theme, so if the gameplay on the previous release was enjoyable, it’s more of the same here with an added visual polish!

If you haven’t played the previous version, this may well be worth checking out. One thing Play’n Go do very well is the grid style slots! For seasoned players, it’s more of the same with a few minor changes!
