Icy Gems Mobile Slot Review

While winter is slowly starting to fade away, we decided to re-visit a snowy wonderland one final time before springtime is in full swing and we are too busy basking in the sunlight. And while we have seen some superb winter based releases, we really cannot say that this Just For the Win title counts as one of them. It lacks imagination, both in terms of graphics and gameplay.

Icy Gems is a winter-themed video slot developed exclusively for Microgaming-powered online casinos which offers players a 5×3 playing field with 20 fixed paylines. That means gamblers cannot choose to turn off some paylines in order to lower their total bet. Payouts are granted for collecting three or more identical symbols in adjacent positions following one of 20 active paylines, from left to right only. The game has several special features such as Symbol Storage, re-spins and Super Spins, all of which are tied together.

How to play Icy Gems

Considering it was released around the same time as Reel Talent, we have to express our disappointment in how underwhelming this title is. The background is completely static and looks like the back of a Christmas card. The symbols themselves look bland and flat. We are used to playing card royals being a touch boring but they seem to be even more so in Icy Gems. When everything is said and done, this Just For the Win release fails to impress on every front.

Icons include playing card royals J, Q, K and A, which look like someone took a clothes iron and flattened them out, as well as several gems in different colours: green, red, purple and blue. Finally, we have the game’s logo as the highest paying icon and a golden W as the Wild symbol.

The title has high volatility and the gameplay that has been completely ripped off from Reel Talent. It offers the same bonuses, an identical RTP and a copy-pasted paytable. It is a perfect clone, except Icy Gems has worse graphics, making it a sub-par experience compared to the real thing. While cloning is, sadly, nothing new for the slots industry, being so blatantly obvious and releasing it so soon after the original came out was asking for trouble.

Jackpots & Progressives

There is no progressive jackpot in this game and the largest win you can get is worth 1,210.5x your total bet. The RTP for the title is worth 96.03%, which is the current industry average.

Bonus Games & Sign-ups

When a win is awarded on one or more lines, the winning icon for each line is added to the symbol storage. Once three icons have been deposited into symbol storage, a Super Spin is granted.

If there are empty positions in the symbol storage after a win occurred, a re-spin is played to fill up the vacant spaces. Re-spins end when no win lands, or if all positions in symbol storage have been filled.

During Super Spin, only icons that were collected in symbol storage can appear on the reels. A single spin is played, with different stages depending on the collected icons.

  • Stage one appears when all three symbols are different
  • Stage two occurs if you have two icons of the same type and any other symbol
  • Stage three only happens when all three icons are of the same type and is a guaranteed win.
