With a brisk arctic theme and some of the largest payouts offered in the entire Rival video slot collection, Ice Picks is a game that any slot lover ought to take a look at. But before you try it yourself, make sure you take the time to learn all about what makes it unique.
A Crystalline Wonder
When you first load Ice Picks, you'll be presented with a short cinematic that sets the tone for the game. You've been assigned to delve into one of the coldest regions on the planet to find hidden treasures. Get your tools ready and prepare for the unexpected! From ancient tools to golden relics, there are plenty of lucrative items awaiting.
Although it features several innovative elements, Ice Picks relies upon a standard video slot layout to ensure that players can get in on the action immediately. The game is comprised of 20 different paylines that run along all 5 reels. Before spinning, you can adjust your bet by changing your coin denomination, the number of active paylines, or the number of coins you're wagering on each active payline.
The object of the base game in Ice Picks is to get matching combinations of symbols running from left-to-right along any of the active paylines. The Wild Crates appearing on reels 1, 3, and 5 make this task much easier by substituting for any regular symbol along any line.
Sure, you can stand a fair chance of getting a big payout from Ice Picks with just the main game. In fact, if you can get 5 Treasure Chests along a line, you'll win an impressive 9000x your line bet. However, the real fun and big prizes come from the game's special features.
By far the most unique thing about Ice Picks is its Ice Drop feature. Known as an "avalanche" style of feature, the Ice Drop gives players the chance to turn virtually any spin into a sizeable win. To activate it, you need to get 3 or matching symbols encased in ice (with or without wilds). All wins will be counted, then all ice wins will shatter. All remaining symbols will then fall, then new ones will drop in from the top. This process continues until no new ice or wild wins are attained. With the Ice Drop feature, you can accumulate a huge payout from even the simplest of wins.
What video slot would be complete without some kind of free spin reward? In order to activate Ice Picks's free spins, you'll need to get 3 or more scattered Devices anywhere on the reels. Three will award you 5 free spins, four grants you 10 spins, and five will get you the top amount of 25 free spins. With a 3x multiplier on all wins earned during the free spins, as well as Ice Drop on all eligible line wins, the free spins available in Ice Picks are some of the best available on the Rival platform.
