Frost Bite Slots

Wrap up warm and brace the cold as you spin the 3 reels of Frost Bite, a retro style slot machine with an Arctic twist delivered to your computer screens by Microgaming software. Life in the Arctic tundra can be tough, and there are slim pickings in this game which only has 1 payline set over the reels, meaning that spinners will have to keep their eyes on the prize and make the most of every win that comes their way.

That said, Frost Bite will lend a bit of a helping hand to players with a wild symbol that has to potential to double and even quadruple the value of normal wins when it replaces them on the payline.

Cool Spins

We have to admit that this game presents a fairly unique theme with its snowy design and cold aspect. Let's face it, games which are set in hot and exotic locations such as the jungle or the desert present a much more welcoming theme! Nonetheless, players who want to get some spine-tingling shivers to go along with that spinning buzz will find that this 3-reel Microgaming slot machine is a perfectly good option.

The game screen is ice cold, with blue and white colours and some frosty reel symbols such as snowflakes and a cheeky little snow elf character. The game also includes some typical BAR icons, which are presented as big blocks of blue ice, just to ensure that players can experience some ice-cool retro spins in this novelty themed slot machine.

This game certainly does a good job at creating a frosty aesthetic, so much so that it would be perfect for some chilling spins on a hot summer's day. Having said that, the game's quality of graphics does suffer from being a little bit out of date when compared to some of the new slot machines that have come out in recent years. As such, the two-dimensional illustrations and basic artwork aren't going to captivate players on a visual level as opposed to more contemporary video slots such as Penguin Splash, which was designed by Rabcat and is distributed by Microgaming's Quickfire platform.

Nice and Easy Spinning Action

Of course, the benefit of playing a basic game such as Frost Bite can be found in the sheer simplicity of the spinning gameplay action. Wit this in mind, players simply have to determine their wagers by selection whether to play with 1 or 2 coins worth any of the following values: 0.25, 0.50, 1.00, 2.00 and 5.00 credits. That is all there is to it since there is only 1 payline involved, meaning that players won't have to fiddle around with any other options.

From looking at the slot machine's paytable which is presented next to the reels themselves, it would appear that playing with 2 coins is much more rewarding as opposed to the playing with just 1 coin. The reason that this seems to be the case is that the prize values highlighted in the second column are all double the value of those shown in the first column. Therefore, it would seem to be the worth the risk of playing with larger bets to receive more lucrative prize returns, right? Not so, because even if players place 2 coins on the reels, only 1 coin will be multiplied by the values shown in the paytable.

So, if one snowflake icon turns up on the payline in any position, players will receive a total bet multiplier that is worth 2x, irrespective of how many coins are in play. The wins keep on rising up to a maximum total bet multiplier of 800x which is given when three “Frost Bite” logo icons appear on the payline. You can see those wins and all of the other potential payouts in the following table:

Symbol
Total bet multiplier
1x Snowflake
2x
2x Snowflake
5x
3x Any BAR
5x
3x Snowflake
10x
3x Single BAR
10x
3x Double BAR
25x
3x Triple BAR
40x
3x Snow elf
80x
3x Frost Bite logo
800x

The Wilds of the Arctic

That Frost Bite logo is not just the game's most lucrative symbol in terms of prize paying potential. That is because this icon has wild characteristics, meaning that it will substitute for all other symbols on the paytable to complete line wins. What's more, when it comes into play, it will either double or quadruple the normal prize value depending on whether one or two appear on the payline.

Cool Classic

In terms of theme, Frost Bite offers up a very niche and unique slot machine for spinners who want to try out an ice-cool game with retro spinning action. Admittedly, the game far from being the most innovative when it comes to the quality of design and range of bonus elements. Nonetheless, with an 800x jackpot and the possibility of wild wins with 4x multipliers, this Microgaming slot machine is definitely worth a spin or two.
