Play Snowflakes Slot Machine For Free

Snowflakes may have been released at the back end of winter, but there is enough in this slot to make it popular all-year-round. Snowflakes has been developed by NextGen Gaming and focuses on frosty, frozen images as its central theme.

Aside from the various ornate snowflake symbols which appear in this slot, there is a snowy animated backdrop, frozen orbs, and icy wild symbols to keep you going. In many ways, Snowflakes has a lot in common with the gem-themed slots which are all the rage at the moment.

Developers

The wonderfully simple slot machine comes with a blizzard of nifty features – far more than you’d expect to find in a typical NextGen Gaming developed slot machine.

Ordinarily, we’d see wilds and scatters, and a free spins bonus round in such a slot. NextGen Gaming have gone above and beyond to ensure that there is much more to Snowflakes than that, so even if the bitter winter theme doesn’t do it for you, the surplus of features will help you warm to their Snowflakes slot machine.

How to play

Snowflakes contains just 25 paylines spread over its 5 reels, but you aren’t going to be able to alter any of those paylines. Players can, however, alter their bets via the up and down arrows, in true NextGen Gaming fashion. Wagers range from a floor of $0.30 per spin (which is unusual given that there are only 25 lines), up to a ceiling of $600 per spin, which is perhaps a little extreme for most players.

Features

Wild symbols: As is the case with all NextGen Gaming developed slots, there is a wild present here. Wild symbols appear as ice squares and can substitute for all other symbols in the slot, save for scatters.

Icy Wild and Wild Wind features: At any point in the base game, the Icy Wild feature may be triggered at random. When it is, up to 5 random symbols can be turned into wild symbols. Another randomly triggered event is the Wild Wind feature. This can do roughly the same thing, so you effectively have two chances of landing random wilds in the base game. No complaints there, then.

Scatter symbols: Scatters appear as frozen orbs, and as well as dishing out scattered cash prizes, they can trigger a free spins bonus when 3 or more appear anywhere on the reels at the same time. Scattered cash prizes include 5x, 20x, or 100x your total bet for landing 3, 4 or 5 such symbols on the reels.

Free spins bonus: Players who land a total of 3, 4 or 5 scatters will pocket 7, 10, or 15 free spins. During the free spins bonus round, any wild symbols which appear will become frozen wilds, and thus remain in place for the duration of the bonus. You can retrigger the feature by landing more scatters on the reels whilst the bonus is in play.

Maximum pay-outs

Remember the wild symbols? Those symbols happen to be the best paying symbols in the slot machine. Landing 5 of them on any payline in the game will see you walk away with the non-progressive jackpot of 500 coins. It is a petite non-progressive, but still a welcome one. Failing that, the 8-point snowflake can still see you land 400 coins if it lands 5 times on any line.

Summary

Snowflakes is a calm slot machine game. There isn’t a lot of adrenaline pumping action to be had, but the features make it worth a shot even for the average slot junkie.

Some will only find Snowflakes appealing during winter, but the truth of the matter is that there is nothing inherently Christmassy about its theme, so there isn’t really any reason why you might limit yourself as to when you wish to play this slot.
