Microgaming Goes Into Winter Mode With New Icy Gems Slot

By: Russell Potvin, December 14, 2018

Travel to the north pole this festive season and enjoy the latest slot from Microgaming and Just For The Win where players will be showered with glamorous gems.

The latest slot release from the creative partnership between Just For The Win and Microgaming is called Icy Gems and it comes equipped with a Christmas theme where players will be transported to the north pole to search for precious gemstones that have been left in the snow for way too long. These precious gems will provide plenty of hefty payouts along with loads of lucrative rewards while players try their best to stay warm in this snow-covered slot.

The new Icy Gems slot from Just For The Win and Microgaming casino software comes with five reels, three rows, and 20 non-adjustable paylines. Players will also be pleased to discover that the slot impresses with an exciting range of slot features, including an innovative Superspin feature, re-spins, and wild symbols along with a 1,000-coin jackpot prize. The new Icy Gems slot can be enjoyed on tablets, mobile devices, and desktop computers, adding an extra layer of flexibility and convenience to all players this festive season.

Icy Gems Slot Features

Due to the fact that the new Icy Gems slot does not feature any bonus symbols or scatter symbols, the wild symbol, represented by a huge, yellow 'W', will stand in for all symbols on the reels to form a winning combination. Even though the slot doesn't feature any special symbols, apart from the wild symbol, players will still be in for a treat thanks to re-spins and the exclusive Superspin feature that can only be enjoyed on slots developed by Just For The Win.

The main attraction in the new Icy Gems slot is the Superspin feature. Players will instantly notice the storage box located on the left-hand side of the reel set which will play a significant role to activate the Superspin feature. Players can fill the storage box by collecting winning combinations and each time a winning symbol is added to the storage box a re-spin is awarded. This will continue until no more winning combinations are formed on the reels. The only way to occupy all three spaces within the storage box is by landing three consecutive winning combinations in a row through the respin feature. There is a total of three Superspin features to unlock which will greatly depend on the winning symbols collected in the storage box.

To unlock the Silver Stage One Superspin feature, players will need to fill the storage box with three different winning symbols. To unlock the Gold Stage Two Superspin feature, players will be required to fill the storage box with two different winning symbols, and to unlock the Win Big Stage Three Superspin feature, players will need to fill the storage box with one winning symbol. Winning opportunities are likely to increase with every stage that is unlocked. However, the third stage will always guarantee an enormous win as only one symbol will be present on the reel set.

Betting Options and Symbols

The new Icy Gems slot also comes with a vast selection of betting options even though the slot is restricted by 20 non-adjustable paylines. Players will have the convenience of choosing between several coin values, ranging from a mere $0.005 up to a maximum of $5.00 which means players can set the reels in motion from a minimum bet of $0.10 up to a maximum bet of $100.00.

Although the overall presentation is simplistic in appearance, it does offer several valuable and shiny gemstones to assist players informing winning combinations. The symbols embedded in the slot include the Icy Gems game logo along with numerous gemstones, such as Emeralds, Amethysts, and Diamonds. Players can also form wins by using the lower-valued symbols, including four card symbol in various colours.
