The Tropicool 2 slot is a 6×6 reel game with avalanching wins and a Cool Reel filled with bonus symbols, such as locked wilds, row swaps, mystery symbols and bonus games.
The first Tropicool slot took you on an arctic adventure where two tropical birds head in the wrong direction on holiday. We are back in the topics, but the reception is just as cool with one grumpy sloth doing his best to get rid of our avian duo.
The Tropicool 2 slot game keeps the same role set with 46,659 ways to win and cool ice cube the smash open with a win, with 3 Cool Reels dropping down mystery bonus features.
This is mid to high-variance Elk Studio game, with a low RTP of 94% but a high top win of 25,000x your bet. It has a high hit rate, meaning plenty of small wins as you wait for the free spins to hit.
The Toucan and the Flamingo, both high-paying symbols last time, return, but this time as scatters. Like normal scatters – they pay regardless of where they land, and they can come up to 6 symbols stacked high.
However, they don’t show up very often, maybe in pairs at the most. But that’s ok because the grumpy sloth Elmo is trying to get rid of them, and you want to let him.
When he shows up, he sets off a series of respins where every bird will be turned into a wild as he walks from left to right, one spin at a time.
It’s a fun feature that pops up often enough to make you smile.
But you’ll win big in this Tropicool 2 mobile slot by either finding mega symbols that are 3×3 in size on the reels or getting three or more scatters and triggering the bonus game.
The Free Drops add multipliers onto the cool reel, which are added together as you play, and make this paytable pop even more than the pink Flamingo.
We wish the RTP was a little higher, but much like the Nitropolis 4 slot, there’s enough action on these give reels for us to recommend you take a spin at your favourite online casinos.

Wild: The Wild symbol will substitute for all other symbols except the birds. A winning combo of only wild symbols pays as the highest-paid symbol.
Mega Symbols: All symbols can appears as 1x1, 2x2 or 3x3 in size except the birds and Elmo.
Scatter Mega Birds: 3 or more birds anywhere on the screen will pay like scatters. The bids can come 1x1 all the way to 1x6 rows high.
The Cool Reel and Avalanching Reels: On the top of the reels you have 3 rows where you only get feature symbols, empty ice cubes and empty cells. These are the Cool Reels and they change every spin.
During a spin, any wins will explode and be filled with symbols from the Cool Reels. New wins continue the avalanche for as long as you get them.
The Symbols on the Cool Reels include:
Any mega symbols that fall from the cool reels above will crush any underlying paying symbols and falls down to the bottom, giving you more space for more symbols.
Elmo Redrops: Elmo, the sloth, can randomly drop onto the main grid and triggers a series of respins as he walks from left to right and out of the screen.
If any Bird symbols land on the screen, he scares the birds away and turns them into wild and locked wild symbols.
Any Bonus or Locked Wild symbols remained during the redrops.
Mystery Symbols: Reveal the same paying symbols each time, except the scatter birds.
Scatter and Free Spins: 3 or more bonus symbols anywhere on the trigger the bonus drop.
During the free spins you can get +1, +2, or +3 spins, or you can add x1, x2 or x3 win multiplier to all wins.
If you love the original, you will enjoy this follow-up, which keeps everything you love but adds some extra ways to win, all under a hot tropical sun.
With fun characters and icy blocks that keep you guessing, almost everything is an improvement - from the bigger top win to the mega symbols to the two stacked scatter pay symbols.
It's a shame that it has a much lower RTP of 94%; we can't give the Tropicool 2 slot review more than 4 stars. For a mid-to-high variance machine, you really have no excuse to set your game at less than 95%.
But it won't stop us from playing on this great addition to the Elk slots collection, mostly because it makes up for that low RTP with a huge top win.
You win some, you lose some.
