The Ice Wolf mobile slot is not like any other casino game but is far simpler than you might think once you break the ice.
When you open up this Wintery slot machine, you know from the moment you see those 6 reels and 3 sets of rows, that this is not like any of the other Elk Studios slots or slot machines out there.
The theme is cute enough – think Viking wolves, set in the far north, where ice covers your ship and you have to do all you can to break through and continue on your journey.
Because if you hit the summit, you’re in for a surprise – from wild wolves to huge multipliers and lots and lots of actions. This Vikings themed slot can hit big.
You start by playing on 3 rows, giving you a total of 729 ways to win. Any win will give you a free re-spin of the reels, plus you’ll see the ice break above the reels.
That opens up the second set of reels and symbols. Every single win will keep breaking the ice, and the bigger the win, the more ice you break.
In fact, if you open up all 6 reels and 7 rows of symbols you’ll end up with 74,088 ways to win. This all has to happen on free re-spins, based on getting win after win. Not easy, by any means, but there are so many little wins that it has a wonderful momentum.
Which is all amazing, but not as amazing as the top reel.
When you manage to break to the top of the Ice, you’ll notice that there’s a special reel that doesn’t seem to have many symbols.
In fact, the only symbols it has is wilds, multipliers and re-spins of the reels. You only get them once that reel has popped open from the ice with wins. And if you get a win using one of those wilds or multipliers, they stay sticky for the whole set of re-spins and wins.
And these aren’t small multipliers. They are up to 50x the paytable amount. Which, if we are honest is where you get the biggest wins.
The problem, of course, is that because you need those big multipliers, the paytable to start with is fairly low – allowing you to get all those little wins and re-spins.
So on one hand, you do get lots of wins, but on the other hand you need to get a lot of little wins to get to the ways to wins that really count. It’s hard, but much like the Hit It Big slot, you have to be a little patience to tame these wolves.

Ice Wolf Reel: There are three sections of this slot. The top row which only shows wilds, +1 spins, and multipliers. The middle section covered in Ice. The bottom section that you play on to start with.
A three of a kind win will start breaking the Ice, increasing the ways to win. The bigger the win, the more ice you break. Every win gives you a free re-spin of the reels to try and get another win and break more Ice. If you don't get a win, the Ice is recovered and you have to pay for the next spin.
If you continue to get wins, however, and break all the way up to that top row, things get interesting. Because if you get a win with a wild or a multiplier, that wild or multiplier stays sticky until you lose. A +1 spin will give you an extra re-spin if you have a loss.
You can uncover all the Ice and play with all 7 rows open, and a maximum of 74,088 ways to win.
Multipliers: You can catch 2x, 3x, 5x, 10x, 50x multipliers on the top reel. These stay sticky when used in a win during the Ice Wolf Reel.
Wolfpack: Randomly, a pack of wolves may run across the screen, break through the ice of one reel all the way to the top reel. They also leave behind a trail of wild symbols. That means that the top reel is now active for wilds and multipliers, and you automatically get more ways to win.
Betting Strategies: You can pick from several betting strategies which will automatically change your bet according to how aggressively you want to bet. For more information, read our tricks to winning on slot machines post.
Ice Wolf is a 6 reel 3-row slot machine with 729 ways to win, which increases as you break the ice above the reels, and open up the reels, giving you added wilds and multipliers.
There's something wonderfully fun about watching that ice break, and it doesn't matter if you get free spin bonus, because you have so many re-spins. More re-spins that you can count.
Which sure, means you need multipliers in order to make the paytable worthwhile, but it gives this Ice Wolf slot an energy that is hard to beat - maybe by the increasing reels in the Ecuador Gold slot. Maybe.
