Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure is a 5-reel, 20-payline video slot by Ash Gaming. The game features wilds, scatters, and free spins. It also comes with a lock and spin feature that adds user interaction to this already exciting online slot game.
Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure features a cast of polar characters set in the icy surroundings of the Arctic. Mac-friendly, this slot is a great introductory slot for new slot players.
Serving as a sequel to the "wildly" popular Wild Gambler the original, which was set in an African savannah, Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure features rather a polar theme, set in the Arctic Sea, but is just as action-packed and filled with online slot adventure. The game also features the appropriate White Wolf, Penguin, Sharp-Toothed Polar Bear, and Walrus symbols. Playing card symbols are also present on the reels and appear to be carved out of ice. The skiing penguin may just enjoy the music more than any of the other animals and a fish skeleton may or may not startle you when increase or decrease the coin value. Every last detail has been polished in Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure, as is common in most Ash Gaming slots.
Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure comes with a convenient auto play button. With this feature, you can set between 5 and 50 automatic spins to spin automatically at a pre-set bet. Turbo Mode is also an option and sets the reels spinning at a much faster rate for more spins per hour.
The winter wonderful intro will tell you everything you need to know and exactly what to expect in the game, so make sure you watch it the first time you play. You can skip it thereafter. Also, you may wish to reduce the volume of the sound or completely mute it during play, and you can do this via the gaming screen.
The wild in the game is the Polar Bear, and it substitutes all other symbols on the reels except the scatter, which is represented by the Free Spins Coin. Five Polar Bear symbols will reward you with 1,000 coins, the top payout for Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure.
An innovative and interactive feature of this slot is the Lock & Spin option that was made popular in the original Wild Gambler slot game. If you get the wild Polar Bear anywhere on the reels, you have the option to lock it on the reels by clicking on the corresponding button in the bottom right corner of the screen. You also can increase the multiplier by clicking on the wild. If you get a Polar Bear on an already frozen wild, then the multiplier will be increased by 1X. You have the opportunity to multiply your line wins up to 5 times. However, with every wild you freeze (aka locked wild), your bet cost will increase, but the higher the bet, the higher the payout, and the better a chance of a payout you'll have.
An extension of the Lock & Spin feature, known as Play Your Way, can, at any point in the game, turn a symbol on the reels into a wild and increase your multiplier, but again, for a price.
Also like the original Wild Gambler, Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure features a Free Spins bonus round, which is triggered by 3 or more scatters. The more scatters you get the better. Three scatters will get you 7 free spins, 4 scatters will get you 12 free spins, and 5 scatters will get you 20 free spins. More so, all multipliers and frozen wilds will remain in place throughout the duration of any spins, and if you get more wilds during a spin then they too will remain locked on the reels for the remainder of the free spins.
The coin values in Wild Gambler Arctic Adventure start as low as 0.01 and go as high as 10, making this a versatile slot for any stakes gambler. The Polar Bear is the highest paying symbol and pays 1,000 coins when 5 of appear on an line amid a max bet spin. The game does not have a progressive jackpot, but you can win up to 1,000X your bet amount.
