You’ve surely heard of the Christmas song that features the lyrics, “Jack Frost nipping at your nose”? It’s a reference to an age old mythical figure of the same name, but over time he has had many reincarnations and even Hollywood films. Rival Gaming have taken their turn at developing Jack Frost into a slot game, yet the developer has given it a bit of a twist. The Jack Frost slot game incorporates some delightful graphics affording you a visually exciting product to play, and it brings both the winter season and summer seasons into play on its reels. That’s quite the intriguing theme overall, right?
Jack Frost takes place upon a setup of five reels and three rows in total, so anyone who is a regular slot player will recognise this standard video slot interface. Rival Gaming has also added a total of 25 pay lines into the game, but you can still customise those using the plus and minus buttons on either side of the reels. Then you can pick out a specific coin value between 1p and 25p before choosing how many of those coins you’d like in play per line; between one and ten. This means that Jack Frost has a maximum wager possibility of £62.50 per spin.
The background of the slot depicts a truly wintry festive scene, and initially the symbols upon the five reels are all winter-themed, too. They begin with wreath-wrapped playing card suits; hearts, spades, clubs and diamonds. There’s also a pair of winter goggles for skiers to wear, while a perfectly wrapped gift box is also on the reels as a symbol. A Christmas bauble makes up another symbol, while the ice skates are also visible in the game. You’ll see a candy cane and a winter hat, while the symbol of blue-coloured men is the slot’s highest paying standard addition, providing maximum rewards of 500x your bet.
During base gameplay, you’ll see the Drop Icons feature come into effect. As soon as you form one or more wins, the icons incorporated in that win will be engulfed in flames and melted away. This will leave gaps for new symbols to fall into and potentially create additional winning combinations.
The inbuilt special features in this game start with the wild symbol, which is simply the word ‘wild’.
The wild will substitute for all other symbols on the reels, assisting you with the creation of winning combinations. The only symbols it won’t substitute for are scatters and other wilds.
The fiery, angry-looking man represents this game’s free spins-triggering symbol. He has the ability to reward you with up to 20 free spins of the reels, but you need to ensure that at least three of him appear on the reels in any position. You’ll get five free spins for three free spins scatters, ten for four appearing and the full twenty for five scatters coming into view.
During free spins, an alternative set of symbols are used, taking you to a hotter climate. So, instead of the winter options you’ll get to see sunglasses, a cocktail in a coconut shell, flip flops, a baseball cap and more of the like.
Sticky Wild – What’s more, during the free spins feature, the standard wild is replaced by a sticky wild. This means that whenever they appear on the reels they will first substitute for other symbols and then remain stuck in the same place before a single re-spin is activated, with any additional sticky wilds coming into play triggering the whole process again.
Make sure you’re also on guard for the arrival of the close up of Jack Frost himself. It is this symbol which will activate the slot’s bonus round. You’ll need to spin at least three of this symbol into view anywhere in order for the Ice Block Bonus feature to begin.
In the bonus round, you’re simply required to melt ice blocks in order to win coins or free spins.
Jack Frost is just completely compelling from the very start and right the way through to the finish. It’s not only got a set of impressive graphics and animations running through it, but it also has some exceptional special features, too. These all add to the overall theme and make it one of Rival’s best slot games to date.
