Off the coast of Antarctica, there’s a frozen paradise that will have you drinking icy coconuts, strawberries and plums in this Tropicool slot game by Elk Studios.
We love a good slot with a fun theme, and this certainly tickled our eyeballs. You have Tony Toucano & Fiona Flamingo as the high-paying symbols that come stacked 3 high. They got tired of migrating and spend the winter in a snow paradise drinking cocktails in the sun.
The Tropicool mobile slot is a 6 columns, 6 rows game with 46,656 ways to win left to right and avalanching reels. When symbols explode, more symbols tumble from above, including special symbols spinning in the reel above, like wilds with multipliers.
A little like in the Eggomatic slot, only based on wins instead of wilds. And the symbols do help bring together wins, mostly because you have wilds with multiplier, locked wilds that stay on screen for 3 turns, and more interestingly the row swap.
This special feature will pick one symbol and cover the whole row, giving you a guaranteed 6 of a kind win, but hopefully a lot more.
This is a medium to high variance slot machine. So bear that in mind as you spin and win little wins here and there over so many ways to win – in fact, Tropicool works really well with the Elk advanced slot strategies that you can play automatically in the backend with the auto-play function.
Get your bet to go higher or lower depending on the wins because you’ll want to go big when those features show up, especially the row swap. Mostly because the two high-paying symbols are rare and you need that lucky row swap symbol to give you multiple ways to win with that Flamingo or Toucan.
But we have to admit that we love the mechanics of a constant flow of changing features and avalanching wins. Will this have worked equally (if not better) as a grid slot? Maybe. Some Cluster Pays would have made this even more exciting, but thankfully there’s still one great feature we haven’t talked about.
The way to win those high amounts is to hit the Tropicool slot free spins. Why? Because the top reel has two new feature symbols – one adds extra free spins and the other increases the total win multiplier in the free spins.
And it doesn’t go up one by one like in the Megaways slot games, instead, you could increase it by 1 or by 3 or even jump in 5s. So three multiplier symbols could see you get wins with a 15x multiplier, all in 10 free spins or less.
Plus with those avalanching wins, you get value for money because a single win doesn’t mean a single win, it means multiple wins in a row.

Feature Reel and Avalanching Wins: On a win, the symbols explode and more will drop down from above. But above the reel is the special feature reel of ice, which will break according to how many reels you've gotten wins. These trigger special symbols to fall on the reels to cover the open spaces, as well as normal symbols.
The feature symbol includes:
In the free spins:
Bonus Games: 3 or more bonus symbols trigger the free drop bonus game. Two additional feature symbols appear in the feature reel that either adds more spins or increases the win multiplier.
Stacked Symbols: Tony Toucano & Fiona Flamingo are the highest paying symbols and come stacked 3 symbols high.
This Tropicool slot on mobile certainly lives up to its name, giving us plenty of cool moments and even some tropical thrills as we spun a 46,656 ways to win slot machine.
Will it frustrate some? Sure. Especially if those icy blocks for all the features above don't fall nicely into the reels to give you satisfying wins. And yes the stacked high-paying symbols are conspicuously rare.
But the features do fall, and you do get wins using the high-paying symbols, and the free spins almost always give you a satisfying multiplier that gives this icy fruit cocktail its flavour and huge top win of 1 million in cash.
All in all, another brilliant insight into Elk Studio slots that won't disappoint, even if you may have to lower your expectation and walk away if you win anything close to 1,000x your bet.
Go give it try at one of our best Elk Studios casinos and see if you can find the Tropicool wins.
