Novomatic Ice Queen Slot Review and Free Play

Ice Queen: Demo

A magical wintry realm is the setting for Ice Queen, a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot from Novomatic. This winter wonderland comes with a wild that triggers 2 free spins with trebled payouts as well as an unusual jackpot round. Head to this frozen land from between 50p and £100 per spin.

The design in Ice Queen is simple but rather well done (not something we often say about Novomatic video slots). A deep blue, snowflake-filled backdrop features lower value A to 9 playing cards as well as a range of objects associated with the Ice Queen. You’ll see an ornately designed sledge, an ice flower and a gemstone. The best of the standard symbols is the wise old owl – finding 3, 4 or 5 of these on successive reels will get you a payout of 4, 20 or 40 times your total stake.

Appearing on the middle 3 reels only, the Ice Queen is the wild. As well as substituting for everything bar the scatter, she also awards 2 free spins whenever she lands. The payouts on those 2 free spins benefit from a 3x multiplier and are trebled. You can land more wilds to get you another 2 free spins.

The other symbol to look out for is the block of ice which is the scatter – land 3 or more of these on the same spin and you’ll trigger the Cubes of Fortune feature. You’ll be taken to a new screen and shown 5 blocks of ice. The 4 outer cubes will melt.

If they reveal a puddle of water, you’ll win nothing. Land a snowflake though and you’ll be in for a prize. 1 snowflake awards a payout equal to your total stake while 2 snowflakes gets you a payout equal to double your bet. 3 snowflakes triggers the Mini Jackpot with a full 4 getting the Maxi Jackpot. You’ll get 8 chances to win here. If all 4 cubes prove to be losers, the middle cube can reveal an extra 3 jackpot games.

Ice Queen is certainly a change of pace for Novomatic. The design is better than usual and the features offer a little something different. You’ll find plenty of free spins from the wild. The jackpot round is harder to come by. The pace of play in the jackpot round is really slow and there’s no interactivity to speak off. We did well as far as payouts go here so won’t be complaining too much.

Snowy realms are a regular setting for video slots. With its range of innovative extras and classy design, an audience with this Ice Queen is among the better of them and certainly worth a look. I also urge you to try Icy Wilds by IGT and Snowflakes by NextGen Gaming.
