An icy realm is the setting for Snow Queen Riches, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from 2×2 Gaming. This fairy tale adventure comes with frozen wild re-spins with multipliers of up to 4x, a bonus wheel that awards prizes of up to 100x as well as a high risk, high reward free spins feature. Play from between 25p and £25 per spin.

Overlooked by the Snow Queen’s castle, the reels include playing card symbols made from chunks of ice as well as flowers and a mirror, a reindeer and a pair of female characters. The most rewarding is the woman in the hat – land 5 of her on a payline for a payout of 32 times your total stake. Lookout for the trio of features in offer:

Frozen Wild feature – the Snow Queen is the wild, substituting for all other symbols bar the scatter when she appears on reels 2, 3 or 4. Whenever the wild lands, it will expand to fill the whole reel and you’ll be awarded a re-spin with the stacked wild frozen in place.

If you get a winner on the re-spin, the payout will be doubled and you’ll get another re-spin. The process is repeated with the stacked wild remaining frozen and the multiplier increasing by 1 on each re-spin. These continue until you have a spin without a winner or you reach the maximum 4x multiplier.

Land 3 of the castle scatter symbol on the middle 3 reels and you’ll trigger the Snow Queen Bonus feature – here you’ll be given the pick of 2 features.

Bonus Wheel feature – spin the wheel. Prizes of between 4 and 100 times your total stake will be awarded depending on where the pointer lands. This is a low to medium variance option.

Free Spins feature – if you’re feeling a little more fruity, you could opt for the free spins round. Here you’ll be given 10 free spins. The Frozen Wild feature occur more frequently here. The risks are higher than the Bonus Wheel feature though but the rewards are potentially greater with up to 3,200 times your stake on offer! Finally, it you get the scatter on the 3 middle reels, you’ll trigger another 10 free spins taking your total to 20.

Snow Queen Riches is a very well designed slot – the visuals are reminiscent of the hit movie Frozen with the action playing out to a jaunty orchestral soundtrack. It’s not just a pretty face though – the features offer plenty of action, especially the Free Spins feature.

If you enjoy well designed fairy tale themed slots, then it’s well worth paying homage to the Snow Queen. If you like the theme, I recommend you try Play ‘N Go’s Wild North. If it’s queens you’re after, Quickspin’s Crystal Queen is worth playing.
