Polar Explorar is a game from Real Time Gaming software I've been playing for a while. It was one of the first slots I played that had feature guaranteed feature. I play this game once in a while and I still have mixed feelings about it for several reasons.

This slot is one of the rare nordic themed slots RTG has, it is nice to see something with snow that isn't related to Christmas. It has 5 reels and 25 paylines, but since it has feature guaranteed, it adds an extra cost for each spin. From one side it's nice to know that you will definitely get one of the three features after 125 spins, but then again you can't know if it will be worth it. I think that the way you trigger one of the features on base game is really interesting as you need to get a snowflake on the middle reels. At first it was hard for me to notice that but now I've used to it. What I like about the feature guaranteed is the fact that you can try to trigger it even before the meter is 100% full, I like to risk and try when I'm at 30% or 40% meter and most of the times I've got the feature.

I have to say I am not a big fan of the features this slot offers. There are 3 different features and when you enter the feature, you get one of them randomly. Mostly I get the Hidden treasure bonus and Discovery treasure features. All of the features consists of free spins. But the reason I dislike them is because none of them have multipliers, yes, features have some sort of wild symbol (added to the usual wild symol), but it is hard to get winnings above 50x bet. My favorite is the Discovery treasure because there you get at least one wild on each spin and it can be stacked. So those are the times when I've had over 60x bet winnings.

Overall I would recommend to try this game and I think it is a good option for wagering purposes, for me it's hard to get winnings over 100x bet, I've had them only few times and not in any recent sessions, but the paytable itself is decent. I like the design, I like that you can try to trigger the feature before the meter is full, I like that the base game gives frequent winnings that way I don't lose a lot, but at the same time in the base game my winnings haven't exceeded 50x bet.

Polar Explorer is a game I like to play from time to time in RTG. This game for a theme has the polar explorations like the name says and all of the symbols here remind us of the icy cold terrains. Here you can see symbols like the seal, polar bear, compass, whale and an explorer.

This slot has 25 paylines and 5 reels so the minimum bet to play it is 25 cents which is standard to most RTG slots. The explorer is the wild symbol here and during base play he can come on all reels. The scatter symbol is the ship and 5 of them award a win of 200 x bet. The symbols paytable here is a bit better and the highest paying symbol the polar bear has a win of 2500 coins for 5 of them on a winning payline.

The first time I played this game I was surprised when I got 3 scatters and nothing happened. When I went through the rules I saw that the bonus feature here is triggered if you get a full snowflake on the central reels. If you manage to trigger it you get one of the 3 bonus rounds. You can win the Explorer Feature, Discovery or Hidden treasure feature. The first 2 feature are OK but I think the best is the Hidden cave feature. Here you shoot at chests to reveal bonus symbols which are then wilds in the 8 free spins you get. You get a maximum of 3 bonus symbols and if you manage to hit 3 scattered ships during the free spins you get an extra 5 free spins.

This can be a very good bonus round if you get the max number of bonus symbols and manage to retrigger the feature. My biggest win in this feature was over 350 x bet while in the other features I usually get 30 – 50 x bet wins.

Polar Explorer is not so new video slot from Real Time Gaming software and it has really interesting theme, explore the North Pole and all the animals that live there. The slot has 5 reels with 25 pay line and as you know the minimum bet is from 0.25$. This is game from Real Time Gaming which I liked because I like the theme, looks and graphics in this game so it’s a bit different from the other RTG games.

The symbols on this game are the Polar explorer which he acts a wild, the discovery feature, feature guarantee. Feature trigger, explorer and hidden features, which you will come across them while you play and trigger the free spins. The free spins will be triggered when catching up to 3 scatters anywhere on the reels. The Explorer feature will give you free spins and wild reels, during the spin if you trigger on reel 4 and 5 the explorer feature you will be rewarded with 5 free spins, The Discovery feature will award you with only free spins and that would be 8 free spins and The Hidden feature will award you with 8 free spins and wild symbols.

Polar Explorer its really interesting game, but have to admit didn't play this game for a while, like I am just forgetting to play it, because I am always focused to play Count Spectacular slot, which in the moment is my favorite video slot from Real Time Gaming provider. The last time I played this game was in Intertops Red casino given as a free spins with deposit bonus match. Well that day didn't have any luck so from those free spins I only got 6.50 euros, well that’s pretty low for this game, but planning to play it very soon. I do recommend this game, because I like the slot and like the free spins round. Good Luck!

RTG’s Polar Explorer invites us to an expedition to the icy world and on the journey not just we can get to know the travel companion but also have a chance to meet some kind of animals. The interface of the slots is impressive and has a decent graphics and I like this game doesn’t illustrate a modern exploring team because the old style ship, the compass and even the explorer character gives a little sentimental feeling to the game. I also love the icy background images where silhouettes of nice snowflakes add their plus quality to the overall visual effects. But my personal favourites are the animal emblems. It’s not because they were so cute or funny but dolphins, polar bears and seals in their nice realizations fits very well to the game. So overall, we play here in an attractive and pleasant environment and that’s half of success of a slot in my book.

This 25-payline slots offers the common RTG’s features like different kind of Progressive Jackpots or the great Feature Guarantee service but those qualities doesn’t make special Polar Explorer just nice to have them here but the side games this slot owns do that. It’s not too common that the background image would have any business with the game feature but this is the case here and when a Snowflake emblem becomes fully visible in the back one of the three secondary games is awarded. Hidden Treasure Feature gives 8 free spins but before it we can move to a snow cave where we have to shoot at one of the 5 treasure chests with a spear gun and the chest reveals one symbol that will be replaced with Wild during free spins. 3 such symbol can be awarded but I haven’t got more than 2 and it happened just two or three times. With the Explorer Feature we get 5 free spins which are completed with both the 4th and the 5th reels are fully covered with Wilds and the last one is Discovery Feature where 8 free games are given again but this time with a guarantee feature, namely, in each and every spin there is at least one reel that contain at least one Wild symbol.
Because of the Substituting figure appears in stacked format that really can give a chance for a great return. Even though none of these kinds of free games are played with added win multiplier but they’re still great side games and might be rewarding ones.

Anyway, the already often mentioned Wild are represented by the Explorer character that can present the best paying 5 of a kind type win and give out a 5000 times of line bet prize if 5 of them form a good line (and even the Polar Bear icon can pay 2500 coins in such cases) and the Old Ship functions as Scatter and reward up to 200 times of total bet and during free games such appearing icons can add another set of free games.

Unfortunately, the slot hasn’t rewarded me yet as I think it should have and never won any noticeable price or very successful session but I’ve always felt the potential in it and still didn’t give up the hope that once I will see it too. Practically, it may seem to be an average RTG game and maybe the graphics proves that but in my opinion it’s a very good game at RTG’s level and definitely a recommended one if somebody hasn’t tried it yet.
Polar explorer is RTG slot that is all about snow ice and exploration. I don't like cold too much but I like slots that have feature guarantee option. I think it is a nice way to get some refund from free spins if you don't trigger them in 125 spins.The interface of this slot is RTG like which means it is not too fancy but not too bad either. Symbols that create winning combinations are several polar animals, explorer ship, compass as well as classic card symbols. Ship symbol is a scatter and wild that substitutes all except ship is explorer man.

When it comes to free spins I had really good luck in triggering them. There can be three different free spins features and my favorite is called hidden treasure feature. It is triggered when card symbols create a full snow flake on reels 2, 3 and 4. In hidden treasure you enter a snow cave and have to shoot at chests to reveal which of animal symbols will be bonus wilds during free spins. You can shoot until cave in occurs or a total of three bonus symbols are revealed. Then the 8 free spins are played and with 3 extra wilds they can be very rewarding. Biggest win I had with this feature is 150 dollars but I must say that free spins re triggered once when I got three ship scatters. When free spins re trigger you get additional 5 free spins. The other two free spins features are explorer and discovery features and I don't like them very much. In explorer feature you get five free spins with reels 4 and 5 made entirely of explorer symbols. In discovery feature you play 8 free spins with at least one explorer symbol on reels. The reason I prefer hidden treasure is that it always pays nice which is what I can't say for other two features.

For the most of my play sessions on this slot I had decent luck and almost never had to wait for the 125 spins to get the feature. I have to say that I played it mostly when I was wagering bonuses and for that purpose it served me well. This slot can be very rewarding if you have luck with free spins and for that I will rate it with 8 out of 10 stars.
