Where to play?
The Northern Hemisphere is heading into Winter now, as such the release of Microgaming’s newest slots Frozen Diamonds gets things off to an icy start. If you fancy a trip to the polar ice cap then this 20 payline, 5 reel slots machine with its tumbling reel feature and superb game mechanics is a must. The slots with its multi-faceted game play locks in on a scintillating free spins bonus feature interspersed with wilds and multiplier wins.
Symbols that appear on the reels remain true to the theme since they look like miniature ice blocks. The moment a winning combination is hit the ice blocks explode. The remainder of the symbols are blasted away and replaced by the ones above them. The game can be played in the download or instant play on mobile phones or desktops for real cash or for free.
Aside from the game’s arresting graphics that will rope you in from the very first spin it offers a top non-progressive jackpot of 1,000 times your stake. The higher your average bet per spin the higher the cash amount you’ll win-it’s a no brainer really. Frozen Diamonds offers an average return to player (RTP) payout percentage of 96.7% to the player or an edge to the house of 3.3%. The wild symbol is the colourful star symbol which I’ll discuss later on.
Bets can be made from £0.20 up to £40 making Frozen Diamonds suitable to players with different bankrolls. The animations that play off across the reels have that ”icy look and feel” about them. Customization options like Auto Play, Max Bet and Audio settings allows you to adjust the game that suits your style of play.
The scatter icon is the symbol blast win, 3 or more of them awards you anything from 5 to 10 free spins. When the wild symbol pitches during the free spins mode, 2 or 3 of them appear on the centre reel. You’ll receive an extra spin if you hit a winning combination on the second fall. The biggest win I managed during the free spins was 60x my stake, taking the size of my average bet per spin (£0.25) into account I was impressed.
The total amount of wilds that appear on the middle reel is 3, any wild that rocks up during the free spins comes with a multiplier win of 2x. Well, I can’t say that I’m impressed with the multiplier wins during the free spins mode-it’s a tad low to my liking. Here’s why, NetEnt’s Gonzo’s Quest offers multiplier wins of up to 15x during the free spins-get my drift? The pace picks up nicely during the free spins and it’s also the feature that’s responsible for the biggest wins. Especially if the wilds along with those multipliers kick in.
Frozen Diamonds slots with its symbol drop innovative streak chugs along at a briskly pace. All wins are practically doubled during the free spins mode, it would have been nice if Microgaming increased the multiplier wins (2x) to say 5x. The game’s audio adds another dynamic to it by giving it a slightly mysterious feel. Triggering the free spins is not easy: if you plan on activating it lower your average bet and patience is needed. The game pays out on average ever 5 to 6 spins, if a couple of icy diamonds pop up on the reels you’ll it will put a smile on your face.
