Arctic Race only comes with one main bonus feature, a hold-and-spin-style respins game, along with a gamble mini-game.
When 3 or more trophy scatters appear on the reels, the grid will be vacated and a respins sequence will begin where you get 3 respins and only trophy symbols with values worth up to 100x your stake can appear. Every time a trophy appears, the respin count will reset to 3 and once you run out of respins, the total value of the trophies in view will be awarded to you.
When you land a winning spin, you have the chance to increase your prize by putting it on the line in a gamble mini-game. Guess correctly whether the face-down card on the screen will come up red or black and you will double your win. You can play again to double the value again, but remember that if you guess wrong, you will lose it all.
Playing the Game
Arctic Race prioritises simplicity when it comes to your user experience. The game controls are neatly laid out at the bottom of the screen. You can pick your bet level, activate Autoplay and check out the paytable and help sections with ease.
Arctic Race slot is squarely aimed at casual gamers, but the minimal features and potential won’t generate much excitement. This is a great-looking game despite its fairly simple visuals, with the snowy backdrop and golden reels providing an appealing contrast. While I was happy with how the game looked, I found it a bit lacking in the bonus features department.
The gamble feature feels like a blast from the past, but the game’s true potential is packed into the Trophy Respins bonus round where high-value bet multipliers combine for big prizes. The game’s top potential is $100 000, which is not bad, but titles like Blazing Mammoth and Arctic Enchantress offer icy fun with bigger payouts.
