How to Win Big in Frozen Gems – Frozen Spins (free spins)
3 snowflake scatters landing trigger 9 Frozen Spins (the game’s free spins feature). Winning combos or scatters landing add a win multiplier to subsequent wins. During Frozen Spins, the attained win multiplier never resets but is increased by 1x with each winning spin.
Although the 9 free spins cannot be retriggered with 3 scatters, any scatter landing throughout the bonus round adds an additional free spin. Frozen Gems Bonus Symbols are also in play on every spin (see below for more details of the Bonus Symbols).
- Cascading Symbols with Reaction Wins
- Bonus Symbols
Symbols cascade onto the reels rather than spin. After a win is added to your balance, the winning symbols disappear to be replaced by symbols cascading from above. A winning combo caused by this cascade is often called a reaction win. Reaction wins continue until no new winning combo is formed, after which the spin ends. Each consecutive win increased the win multiplier for the next cascade by 1x. Unlike during the bonus round, once a winning streak ends, the win multiplier resets to x1.
A frozen horizontal reel above the 5 regular reels is also in play for each spin. Rather than regular symbols, it contains 5 symbols (one above each reel) comprising of x2 Splitting Scatters, x3 Splitting Scatters, and Wilds. When activated, the 2x and 3x Splitting Scatters split each symbol on the reel below into either 2 or 3 identical symbols, respectively. The Wild turns the reel below fully wild. The scatters appear in any order for each new spin but always contain one of the two following combinations:
Two x2 Splitting Scatters, two x3 Splitting Scatters and 1 Wild Two x 2 Splitting Scatters, one x 2 Splitting Scatter and 2 Wilds
Landing 3 symbols which form part of any consecutive winning combos on a reel is required to activate the Bonus Symbol above that reel. Snowflake Scatters also count.
As the combination of bonus symbols is always one of the two shown above, then based on the ‘ways to win’ mechanic the maximum number of ways to win is 8,748. For example, if two x3 splitters, the two x2 splitters and Wild bonus symbols all activated on the same spin the ways to win would be 9x9x6x6x3 = 8,748. See the graphic below for a visual representation of how this mechanic works.
Look and Feel of Frozen Gems
The design is suitably wintry, with flutters of snow in the background, the ice cave littered with frozen gems, and the frozen board and horizontal reel. However, as passable as the artwork is, it's not up to Play’n GO’s usual very high standards. Nevertheless, its not all about stunning visuals and animations, and it does the job just fine. In terms of symbols, the lows are the standard royals J-A with 4 gems as the highs. The highest value regular symbol is the amber gem worth 1x the bet size for a full payline. The Wild pays 2.5x the bet size for a full payline, and three scatters pays 5x the bet size. See the paytable below for all symbol pays (please note based on a €2 spin).
In terms of gameplay, Frozen Gems works together with some interesting features with fully wild reels, multi-splitting symbols, cascading symbols, and increasing win multipliers. All in all, it’s a fun, seasonal game with a potential 10,000x max win and plenty to keep you engaged.
