This Winterberries mobile slot game is incredibly simple, with sticky wins, not all the winter berries on these reels will leave you fulfilled. Yet some are just plain delicious, leaving you wanting more.
The second of the Yggdrasil slot games ever released, we have to admit that it’s a little better than the Jokerizer, and we rated that game quite nicely as a first attempt – certainly better than some of the others on the market. It’s also a great Android tablet slot or iPad slot – that big screen just loves the detail in the design.
Yet, much like it’s predecessor, this is a one trick pony, so you’ll have to be after beautiful yet simple slots to enjoy this one. However, fear not, there is an upside.
And it’s not the theme. Look, it’s very pretty and all, with the northern lights cascading in the background and bright, vibrant berries all over the reels. When the symbols freeze, it does so beautifully glazing the fruits into convincing ice cubes. So the graphics are pretty.
It’s just a shame that it didn’t transport us anywhere. For that matter the annoying theme tune was reminiscent of a dark Caribbean jam that a pirate band put together. It didn’t quite fit or spark the imagination. But it’s certainly pretty.
This slot won’t be for everyone, but what it does hides is a x1250 your bet win. How are those numbers for you? Unlikely? Sure of course, what in game jackpot wouldn’t be. But the point is that Winterberries mobile slot is no lightweight.
This is where the sticky wins (much along the lines of Jack Hammer & Jack Hammer 2) are your best friends in the world. We explain what they are exactly on our bonus features section below, but needless to say, it’s a great feature.
Would we love to have had some free spin bonuses thrown in there? Of course. But if you had to only pick one feature to entertain, freezing the symbols on the reels and giving you free re-spins for as long as that symbol shows up on screen is… an acceptable choice. The addition of multipliers on the reels if you freeze whole reels is also brilliant, giving you hope for wins on every spin.
This slot machine is certainly for the more experienced gambler, who, in all honesty, can bet bigger and play through the dry spells. These will happen, where you might wonder why you are playing this game, but don’t forget that slot jackpot of getting all the symbols frozen across all the reels.
And if you are wondering how we know it’s there, it’s because we hit it once. Those yellow berries froze on our entire screen and it was a sweet, sweet moment. Will it happen ever again? Maybe. Maybe not. But it gave us enough of a rush that we’ll be back to try.

Sticky Wins: Hit three or more symbols on a winning payline and those symbols will freeze before your very eyes. Winterberries slot on mobile will spin it's reels one more time (for free), and if any of that same symbol shows up, it too will freeze. And so on. Until the reels are filled or the frozen symbol doesn't show. You'll then be paid for the winning combinations on show.
Multiplying reels: During the sticky winning symbols, if you fill consecutive reel columns with frozen symbols, from left to right, you can multiply your win. So if you fill reel one, it's just a x1 multiplier, or no multiplier. Fill reel 1 + 2 = 2x multiplier. Fill reel 1+2+3 = 3x multiplier... and so on, all the way to that jackpot bringing 5x multiplier if all your reels are filled with the same delicious berry popping symbol.
Despite the lack of free spins, the free re-spin on each sticky win made up for our usually favourite video slot feature.
Winterberries slot game is not for the faint of heart, and you'll need some cash to get you through the dry spells, but hit the right sticky win and these reels have plenty to offer - despite the strange pirate sounds in the background. Give it a go today.
