Game of the Week – IC Wins
Winter is officially here and that means most of us will have some icy times again. IC Wins is the latest 6-Reel, 4096 ways to win slot game from Real Time Gaming. The game features a fun theme that reminds you of certain Disney movies along with a pair of bonus features with multipliers. Learn more about this game, including the two awesome bonus features available in the game.
IC Wins Offers Some Cool Wins
IC Wins is a 6-Reel, 4096 Ways to win online slot game from RTG. The game features a fun polar theme that reminds us a lot of Ice Age. The pay symbols are what you’d expect to see from this type of game. You have Royals as the lowest paying symbols. The snow leopard and wolf are medium paying symbols.
The highest paying symbols are the polar bear and the ice hunter. The hunter will pay anytime two or more symbols are on a payline and he pays up to 250 credits.
The W campfire is the wild symbol in this game. It only appears on Reels 2 through 6 and substitutes for everything except for the scatter.
Like most RTG games, you have to make multi-line wins to turn a profit on most spins. The limits for this game are low to middle stakes. You can play from .50 per spin up to $5 per spin.
The game also has a pair of bonus features that can help you score some big wins.
Guaranteed Re-Spin Win With Multiplier
After some non-winning spins, the board will start shaking and the Guaranteed Re-Spin With Multiplier will trigger. During this spin, a multiplier bar will appear to the left and will spin. It will select a multiplier from 1x to 7x. If there is a winner on the board, it will be paid via this multiplier.
Notice that this says guaranteed re-spin. This means that if you don’t win during the re-spin, you’ll get another spin. The feature continues until you land a winner.
This feature triggers much more frequently than I expected. I’d say every 10 non-winning spins you’ll trigger this feature. That doesn’t seem like a lot, but the speed at which this game plays will make it seem frequent.
IC Wins Free Games
The IC Wins symbols are the scatter for this game. If you land three or more symbols on board, you will trigger the free spins feature. You’ll get 8, 12, or 16 free spins. During each free spin, a random multiplier from 1x to 7x will be awarded. This changes with each spin. Free spins cannot be retriggered and the guaranteed re-spin feature is disabled during free spins.
I was only able to trigger this once and was extremely disappointed with the results. I ended up winning less than 3x my initial bet. This is one of the worst payouts I’ve ever experienced from a free spins bonus.
Fun Game But Super High Variance
IC Wins is similar to many RTG slot games. It has a lot of lower-paying symbols and multiple bonus features that can result in big wins. However, this game seems to have a higher variance than most RTG slot games.
I do like how frequently the re-spin feature triggers but the free spins game was extremely disappointing. The best part of the game is the design and background music. You’ll feel like you’re playing in a Disney movie. Unfortunately, the high variance of the game will make you feel like you just paid for a trip to Disney World.
