As you might expect, the game itself takes place in a cave of ice. The artwork is outstanding, and the attention to detail is apparent from the outset. Instead of using playing card ranks for minor prize symbols, Ice Cave uses Nordic runes on slabs of granite, which is a very nice touch. Other symbols include a raven, a Viking ship, the Norse goddess Freya, a bearded Viking, and more.
Ice Wild symbols can be frozen across the reels, which is useful for achieving big combinations, and Hammer Wilds can thaw frozen Ice Wilds to triple payouts. Get five bearded Viking symbols in a row and you’ll win 250 times your line bet, which should be more than enough to fill your horn with a celebratory drink or two.
‘Ice Cave is a truly legendary title powered by a popular Viking theme and bursting with exciting features that are certain to keep players entertained,’ said James Frendo, who is Casino Director at Playtech. ‘We are committed to providing the most extensive and dynamic suite of best-performing casino slot games from tried and tested classics to new, innovative products, and we are confident that Ice Cave will not only be a big hit across the Nordic market, but also around the world.’
