Cool as Ice

The name of this new casino slot game by Genesis Gaming is a dead giveaway about the theme. Cool as Ice is a game with a theme set amidst a cold and frozen habitat. You can expect to see icons and images that are aligned with this theme. The multiple bonus features wrapped in a special Wild and covered by a hidden surprise make this a red hot game, though. This game has five reels across three rows, and there are twenty-five fixed paylines. As expected, the ice-cold scenery is showcased with the help of crisp graphics. That is topped up with a peppy soundtrack playing in the background. All in all, we found the theme a little different from most of the other games, and the execution was nice too.

 

Cool As Ice - RTP and Maximum Win

The Cool as Ice casino slot has a standard base game that is topped up by several bonus features. You can start off at the minimum bet level and get an understanding of all the features first. The stakes can slowly be raised until you reach the maximum bet amount. If all that seems too much work, you can set your bet amount and turn on the autoplay feature. The base game provides reasonable returns, details of which are provided in the paytable for each symbol. But it is the bonus rounds which really jack up your maximum possible win amounts. This is the reason Cool as Ice provides an RTP rate of 95.92%, which is quite attractive.

 

Cool As Ice Symbols

We already told you the theme for this game, which is why most of the symbols are on expected lines. The usual polar animals are present, and also a set of Eskimos with funky sunglasses. Here is an indicative list of the base symbols, after which we will talk about some special symbols as well:

  • Card symbols - Ace, King, Queen, Jack, Ten, Nine
  • Penguin
  • Walrus
  • Polar Bear
  • Eskimo
  • Fishing hole - Wild symbol
  • Iceberg - Special Wild symbol
  • Frozen image - special surprise symbol
  • Cool as Ice image - Scatter
  • Husky dog - Additional bonus symbol
  • Sled - Additional bonus symbol

Now for the special symbols mentioned towards the end of the above list. The Wild can replace any other base symbol which is preventing a winning combination from being formed. The Special Wild appears only on the middle reel. When this happens, this symbol can expand to fill the whole reel. On some occasions, it might only spread to the two adjoining reels. Either way, the propensity to win increases when this happens. This is called the Iceberg Wild. The Wild icon also appears in a standalone manner and provides its own rewards, just like in other games. When the surprise icy icon appears, it does so only on the second or fourth reels. You will see an Eskimo walk across the icon when this happens. It will then break the ice, to reveal a matching symbol or a cash award. This is called Ice Fishing. The Scatter symbols open the doors for special bonus rounds.

 

Cool As Ice Bonus

We have given some idea of a few bonus rounds above, but for your convenience, they are listed together below as well:

  • Iceberg Wild: Not repeating, since it has been already detailed above.
  • Ice Fishing: Already detailed above.
  • Igloo Free Spins: Three Scatter (Cool as Ice logo) need to fall on the middle three reels for this round to be triggered. This opens up an igloo image inside which you seem to enter. Once inside, you need to choose from the different eye-shades displayed. Each one has a different number of free spins and multipliers associated with it.
  • Husky Racing: This feature gets triggered by the two additional Scatter symbols - the husky and the sled. For this to happen, the husky Scatter needs to land on the first reel, and the sled symbol needs to appear on the last reel of the same row. The husky and the sled will then race across that row, and leave behind random Wilds behind them.

Using a limited number of base symbols, Cool as Ice has an impressive lineup of these special symbols. These symbols bring you attractive bonus rounds as detailed above.
