Icy Wonders is a fun and friendly winter slot from NetEnt. Although it doesn’t have the film-clip intro or 3D graphics we’ve come to associate with some of NetEnt’s more recent creations, such as the adventure slot Gonzo’s Quest, its reel symbols are colorful and come with some entertaining animations.As a NetEnt slot, Icy Wonders boasts numerous special features to keep a Free Slots player amused. These include wilds, scatters, free spins, a bonus game and a jackpot feature. The reel symbols are a combination of high-value playing cards (encased in melting blocks of ice!) and wintery wildlife: wolves, walruses, penguins and polar bears.
How to Play
Icy Wonders is a 5-reel, 30 payline slot. The aim of the game is to spin the reels and land matching symbols on one of paylines you’ve activated. If you were playing for real money you’d win a cash prize, but here at Free Slots Pro we’re all about enjoying the reel animations and trying to get the right symbol combination to trigger one of the bonus rounds or special features. So, we recommend either clicking on the Bet Level button until you reach the maximum wager, and then hitting the Bet Lines button to activate all the paylines, or simply hitting the Max Bet button. In any case it costs you nothing here at Free Slots. Then – enjoy the spin!

Special Features and Ways to Win
Icy Wonders is a typical NetEnt slot in that it comes with no fewer than 5 fun special features for Free Slots players to enjoy:
- The Whale Wild Symbol – the Wild substitutes for most of the symbols on the reels and increases your chances of matching symbols on a payline. It adds a multiplier to the credits you receive for a winning spin. The more Wilds on the line, the bigger the multiplier. It comes with cute animations too.
- The Scatter – the Icy Wonders Scatter symbol has two exciting functions. Landing one or more Scatters anywhere on the reels (they don’t have to be on an activated payline) adds multipliers to your credits. Also, 3 or more Scatters on the reels launch the Free Spins Feature.
- Free Spins Feature – you’ll be given 10 Free Spins when this bonus game is triggered. Admittedly this kind of thing would be more exciting if you were playing for real money, but even Free Slots Pro players will have their credits from the Free Spins round doubled.
- The Penguin Bonus Game – this fun and frivolous interactive bonus game is triggered if you land 3 Penguin Bonus symbols on an activated payline.
- The Jackpot Feature – you’ll see as you spin that some of the reel symbols have yellow stars in the top corner. If your land 4 of these on an active payline you’ll bag the Wonder Jackpot. Not only that, 5 in a line will win the Mega Wonder Jackpot. (Of course, there’s no actual cash involved here, but it’s still fun to try!).
Music, Audio and Graphics
As mentioned above, this is not NetEnt’s most stunning creation in terms of audio and graphics, but Icy Wonders does the job. The symbols are colorful, crisp and cute, there’s a reasonable amount of animation and movement on screen.
