What is this mobile slot about?

Full of winter wonderland promises, this NextGen Snowflakes mobile slot gives you a flutter of big win hope thanks to it’s bonus feature.

Set on a dark winters night, this Snowflakes slot provides you with 5 reels and 25 fixed paylines of wild action that… actually sounds more impressive than it really is.

Why? The graphics feel a little dated, and the base game wins are lacklustre; mostly less than your bet, up to a couple of times your bet, at the most.

But not all is lost, as this NextGen slot game has a few base game features that can help the action of this medium to high variance slot heat things up.

Plus the free spins feature can impress, like a snowflake gathering speed into an avalanche. Beautiful, but mostly deadly.

Wilds are your key to success

Two random bonus features can show up at any time, the first is the Wild Wind Feature where wilds are added before the reels stop spinning, the other is the Icy Wild Feature where the wilds are added after a spin.

Both can show up at any time; so whats the difference? Really it’s a matter of show:

The first is there to help build anticipation and excitement, whilst the second can help provide you with potentially bigger wins turning a non winning spin in to a winning one.

It’s the only way to get decent returns during the base game, so enjoy them, as this Snowflake mobile game has a tendency to give you the icy shoulder till the free spins.

Snowflakes wilds get frozen for your biggest wins

Occurring every 50 – 100 base game spins or so, the free games show up more regularly than they usually do in most other mobile slots with bonus games.

And we are glad they do, as for us this is the only part of the Snowflake game that we actually found exciting, thanks to the fact that any wilds that show up during the course of your free spins will be frozen in place.

Much like you’d find in the NetEnt Dead or Alive slot or NextGen’s very own Glorious Empire slot.

It’s always a great feature, and usually pays enough to keep you going till the next bonus games.

In-game bonus features

Wilds: The wild symbol is wild and substitutes for all other symbols except scatters.

Scatters: The glowing snowball is the scatter where 3 or more trigger the free spins.

Icy Wild Feature: Randomly occurring after any spin, up to 5 symbols may change into extra wilds with a maximum of 1 per reel.

Wild Wind Feature: Also randomly occurring, but this time before a spin finishes up to 5 wilds can be placed on the reels with a maximum of 1 per reel.

Frozen Wild Free Spins: Find 3, 4, or 5 scatter symbols and you'll trigger 7, 10 or 15 free spins respectively.

Any wild that shows up during your free games will be frozen in place for the remainder of your spins, creating more and bigger winning combinations.

Plus you can also re-trigger the free spins by finding 3 or more scatters as an added bonus.


Closing thoughts

Unfortunately, for us, the wintery snow theme to this mobile Snowflakes slot machine lacked finesse.

We've seen it done much better before in other games like Yggdrasil's Winterberries or IGT's Siberian Storm.

With a betting range of 0.30 up to 600 per bet, this game will appeal to all types of casino budgets, along with those looking to win big thanks to those frozen wild free spins.

However with a maximum win of 12,500 per spin available, we think you can get those kind of win, and more, in fare better looking video slots like NextGen's own Great White Elk or WolfPack Pays slot.

A fun enough game, if you like your wintery slot themes, but not one of NextGen Gaming's best.
