Which is better Fire or Ice? That might sound like a question posed by Alan Partridge on North Norfolk Digital but Fire vs Ice is in fact a 5 reel, 25 payline slot from Pariplay. Extras on offer here include sticky and spreading wilds, a picks round that awards multiplier prizes and a free spins feature. Brave the elements, on all devices, from between 25p and £25 per spin.

The design in Fire vs Ice has an industrial feel – heavy machinery forms the backdrop to the reels. There you’ll see a collection of objects that are frozen in ice or flanked by flames. The best of them are the frozen diamond and the flaming ball, both of which offer awards of 40, 100 or 1,600 coins if you land 3, 4 or 5 on a payline.

There are frozen and flaming wilds too – both award 5,000 coins if you land 5 in combination. Both wilds can offer something extra too. The flaming wild can spread and turn up to 3 surrounding symbols wild too. The frozen wild can expand 1 position and will freeze in place for the spin that follows. There are 2 main bonus features on offer in Fire vs Ice:

Free Games feature – land 3, 4 or 5 of the flaming scatter and you’ll receive 5, 10 or 15 free spins. Land 3 or more scatters or the flaming wild on reel 5 to re-trigger more free spins (to give you up to 30).

Ice Bonus feature – this is triggered by landing 3, 4 or 5 ice bonus symbols on the same spin. You’ll then be shown an ice pyramid. Pick from the ice blocks to reveal multiplier prizes. Keep picking until you land 1 that explodes. You’ll get 1, 2 or 3 rounds of picks depending on how many bonus symbols triggered the feature.

You’ll notice a laser type device above the reels. Land a fire win and it moves 1 place to the fire side. An ice symbol win moves it to the cold side. Reach the fire side and you’ll get 5 free spins. Make it to the ice side and you’ll get 1 round of picks on the ice pyramid.

The industrial setting works well here and there’s an atmospheric score playing in the backdrop which gives it a slightly sinister sci-fi feel. There’s a nice range of extras on offer here too making it a good choice if you like plenty of variety in your play.

We don’t think you’ll break the bank here but the unusual theme, solid design and good selection of extras make Fire vs Ice a playable slot. I recommend you play WMS’ Fire Queen or Playtech’s Ice Cave if you like the fire and ice themes.
