The inhospitable environment of the Frozen Land changes significantly during the warm summer months. As soon as the thermometer hits zero, the ice caps begin to melt, revealing a whole new landscape.
In Polar Heatwave™, this means unfreezing all sorts of amazing prizes. The more you heat up the surface, the bigger and better your rewards will be.
The game starts in the dead of winter, with cute Polar animals out and about in their winter coats. But once three or more suns (bonus symbols) appear on the reels, it means that summer is just around the corner.
Namely, 3, 4, and 5 bonus symbols unlock 10, 15, and 20 free spins, respectively. As new bonus symbols appear during the free spins game, the progress bar will move from -20C° toward 0C°. Each four progress points unlock a new level that comes with a special feature and adds more free spins to the count:
Level 1: Sticky wild reel + 1 free spin
Level 2: 2x multiplier + 1 free spin
Level 3: Second sticky wild reel + 2 free spins
Level 4: Win both ways + 2 free spins
Level 5: Third sticky wild reel + 2 free spins
As the temperature rises, the sun shines brighter, the glaciers melt, and the animals begin to take part in summer activities. Added features help you gain more wins and create massive combos that can make for a very profitable Polar adventure.
The game has four low-value symbols represented by card suites. Mid-value symbols are a seagull and a seal, while the highest-value symbol is a polar bear. The penguin is the game’s wild, replacing all other symbols in a winning combination bar the bonus symbol.
You’ll be playing on a 5×3 grid with ten fixed paylines paying left to right only, although one of the bonus features allows for paylines to pay both ways. The RTP of Polar Heatwave™ is 95.50%.
