The Ice Wolf slot game can be found at casinos offering Elk Studios software. Elk Studios are a small but quickly growing casino software developer primarily focusing on the mobile market. At the present time they only offer slots games. Players should be aware that this software provider includes ‘betting strategies’ as an automated feature. These should be avoided. They offer no mathematical gain to the player and increase the risk of large losses in comparison to your bankroll. As a standard Elk Studios do publish the RTP/House Edge information for their slots games within their game paytable. As such we can say that the House Edge of Ice Wolf is 3.9%.
Ice Wolf is a 6-reel slot that is 3 symbols high. You form wins by landing 3 or more matching symbols across adjacent reels, starting from the left-most reel. Each time you form a win you will be granted a respin and the frozen reels above the standard reels will thaw, but only across the those reels that landed your winning combination.
Re-spins – Each time you land a winning combination you will be granted a re-spin and a set of frozen reels will thaw, releasing more winways. You will continue to trigger re-spins as long as you form winning combinations. Once all the ice has thawed on a reel multipliers, wilds or additional re-spin symbols may be added to the top of the reels.
Wild – The Wild symbol can only be added at the top of the reels, once a reel is fully thawed. They will stick in place at the top of reel when they are added until the series of re-spins ends and a new spin takes place.
Wolf – If a Wolf symbol appears on the reels it will clear all the ice in that column, leaving a trail of Wilds in its wake.
Multipliers – Multipliers can appear at the top of the reels once the ice has thawed and will contribute to wins that are formed, regardless of what columns they land on. Mulipliers begin at x2 the bet, all the way up to x50 the bet.
+1 Spin – If the “+1 Spin” symbol lands at the top of the reels then you will be granted an additional respin.
The Ice Wolf slot comes along just in time for the onset of winter. The slot looks as good as any Elk slot you will have played before, which is pretty high praise given how good their designs are. The central feature is a really good one, which has the potential to trigger on every turn, adding a sense of drama to each and every spin. You get Wilds and multipliers, but they are all part of the one main feature. The thawing ice is a great touch as are the respins and the Ice Wolf symbols. You get Free Spins or a bonus but what you do have is one excellent feature. However, Elk insist on including betting strategies in their games, which offer no advantage and could be construed as dangerous inclusion in a game that is based entirely on random chance. For this reason we cannot Ice Wolf a positive review.
