Ice Joker: Slot Overview

Developer Play’n GO turn the heat down in Ice Joker, a Vegas style slot filled with classic symbols and gameplay. Well, Vegas during the next ice age since the studio went for an Arctic angle in an attempt to add a touch of novelty. It’s hard to get too excited about another one of these fruit-filled games, though there is a fair amount of sticky/spreading wild action going on and a bonus game that piles on free spins. Let’s hold judgement back till we’ve seen what the game is capable of.

Ice Joker uses a conventional 5-reel, 3-row grid, crossed by 20 fixed paylines. Play takes place on a frozen lake, surrounded by jagged mountain peaks, while above them, an Arora Borealis twinkles amongst stars in the night’s sky. Clearly, Ice Joker isn’t the escapism you want on a frigid winter night if you’re pining for a warm-weather break. It actually doesn’t come across as all that inviting full stop. The background’s a bit blurry, yet the shimmering reels add a little bit of magic. As does the ambient music which sounds like the comedown set at a warehouse party, and is possibly one of the most appealing parts of the game.

Playable on any device, punters start the thaw by selecting bets from 20 p/c to £/€100 per spin. A standard Play’n GO bet range is coupled with an equally dependable default RTP rating of 96.23%. Medium volatility and modest potential make the game less suited to the hardcore gamers out there while casual players are more likely to find comfort in the math model. Wins are quite frequent, but mostly paltry unless the lucky sevens come into play, which is a rare occurrence.


Winning combinations in Ice Joker play left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. At least three of the same symbol is needed to form a winning combination, with 7 clichéd icons to make use of. Lows consist of four fruits – cherries, lemons, grapes and plums, while the remaining three are bars, stars, and lucky sevens where five of a kind from the high pay lot is worth 5 to 50 times the stake.


Ice Joker: Slot Features
The range of features in Ice Joker isn’t massive. There are a couple of extras to note though. The Ice Joker wild is central to most of the best opportunities here, starting with the frozen free spins.

The Frozen Free Spins feature is triggered every time an Ice Joker symbol lands on reels 2, 3 or 4. You’ll then simply receive 3 free spins. The Ice Joker will expand will each free spin:

1st Free Spin: the triggering Ice Joker wild will be locked in its original position
2nd Free Spin: the wild expands by 1 position vertically
3rd Free Spin: the Ice Joker wild fills the whole of that reel


If you land a new Ice Joker wild on 1 of the other reels, you’ll get another round of 3 free spins, complete with the expanding wilds.

Winters Wild Wheel feature


Land the snowflake scatter symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 on the same spin to trigger the Winters Wild Wheel feature. You’ll then get a single spin of a bonus wheel. Depending on where the pointer lands, you’ll receive between 2 and 7 Ice Jokers. You’ll then play a single free spin.

If a new Ice Joker doesn’t land, you’ll use 1 of your Ice Jokers which activates the Frozen Free Spins feature. The expanding wilds and free spins are in play once the Ice Joker hits the reels.

The feature continues until you run out of collected Ice Jokers from the Winters Wild Wheel. In theory, you could play up to 51 free spins in this round.


Ice Joker: Slot Verdict
Well, there’s not a whole lot to say really. Ice Joker does its thing in an adequate manner without arousing much passion either way. Unfortunately, it’s not bad enough to tear shreds out of, nor interesting enough to elicit much more than a breathy ‘okay then’ once the gaming is done. It feels like shelf filler Play’n GO could have hammered out in their sleep.


A significant chunk of the RTP appears allocated to the base game Frozen Spins feature, making it that little bit harder to trigger the full bonus round. When snowflake scatters do eventually trigger, the main feature a ton of free spins can be awarded. If you win a high number of Ice Jokers from the Winters Wonder Wheel, the bonus can end up being pretty lengthy indeed. Almost too lengthy at times, the process occasionally descending into the kind of drag you just wish would end. Wins do add up over time, but it often amounts to a few pennies here, a few pennies there. Sure, luck is luck, and ours might not have been firing on this occasion.


Should a player’s good fortune be in when playing Ice Joker, full screens of lucky seven symbols are worth 1,000 times the bet which isn’t bad at all, building to a total potential of 3,000x when the snowflakes align. Not massive perhaps, though quite decent for this sort of light, fruity gaming.

Add it up, and Ice Joker is a so-so fruit slot set in a slightly different location than usual. If you’re not big on the style, then Ice Joker isn’t one you’ll hurry back to after a test run. Unless perhaps you fall for the flirty giggles of the Ice Joker when she lands, or the Arctic thing catches your fancy.
