Icy Gems is a Microgaming / JFTW collaboration sporting 5-reels and 20 fixed paylines. It’s a festive-edition slot of simple appearance, the emphasis rather revolving around the Symbol Storage bonus feature, where you collect winning symbols and trigger respins and the Superspin that involves three stages – the final of which comes with guaranteed wins – up to 1000x your bet in a single spin!
- The Icy Gems logo plus the various coloured gems make up the higher value symbols.
- J, Q, K and A playing cards make up the lower values
- A big golden “W” is the wild, and substitutes for all other icons to help form winning combinations. Note that it cannot be collected in the Symbol Storage feature.
- Respins & Superspins
Respins and Superspins replace traditional free spins in this game. On the left-hand side of the reels you will notice the Symbol Storage feature. Whenever you land a winning spin, the winning symbol is moved to storage and a respin takes place. These respins can continue for as long as you land successive wins.
The Superspin is triggered once you have successfully stored three symbols and will take place after the respins. During this round, only the stored symbols will appear on the reels:
- If you collected 3 different types of symbols, you will trigger the Silver Stage Superspin
- If you collected 2 different types of symbols, you will trigger the Gold Stage Superspin
- If all three symbols are the same, you will trigger the Win Big Stage Superspin, and can expect guaranteed massive wins!
Icy Gems is a no-frills easy-to-play slot. The hero of the game is undoubtedly the Superspins feature that come with guaranteed wins, but that’s about it. We feel the lack of free spins and multiplier action makes the game less attractive compared to other Microgaming offerings out there. Icy Gems comes with an RTP of 69.03%
