Hainan Ice Theme/Symbols

Hainan Ice takes place on a tropical island paradise with a beautiful beach and palm trees in the backdrop – the reels are encased in a tiki style hut. With symbols within ice cubes, you’ll see low value A, K, Q, J and 10 royals – there’s also higher value lychees, grapes, starfruit, oranges and pineapples. The latter pays 1, 2 or 8 times your stake for 3, 4 or 5 in combination.

The Hainan Ice slot comes with a lychee wild symbol – it substitutes for all symbols. 5 wilds on a payline will give you 8 times your stake. Winning combinations are formed by getting matching symbols on adjacent reels beginning from reel 1.

Winning Cascades feature

Hainan Ice comes with a Winning Cascades feature – after you get a win, contributing symbols disappear with the empty spaces filled from symbols from above. The new vacated spaces will be filled with new symbols – this gives you the chance to win again and again from each spin. Furthermore, a multiplier is applied after each cascade:

  • After 1st cascade/win: 2x multiplier
  • After 2nd cascade/win: 3x multiplier
  • After 3rd cascade/win: 5x multiplier
  • After 4th cascade/win: 7x multiplier
  • After 5th cascade/win: 10x multiplier

Mega Blocks feature

When 4 or 9 identical wild, orange, starfruit, grape or lychee symbols appear in a grid of 2x2 or 2x2 symbols, the Mega Blocks feature is triggered with a Mega Block created. When at least 3 of a kind fruits have been collected, the corresponding bonus feature will be activated.

Peach Wild feature

The Peach Wild feature is played when at least 3 wild fruits are collected. During each active spin, a roaming reel with wilds will land to cover 1 of the 5 reels. Each spin consumes 1 collect wild fruit.

Orange feature

The Orange feature is triggered when at least 3 orange fruits are collected. The multipliers for winning cascades are doubled meaning potential 20x multipliers! Each spin consumes 1 collected orange fruit.

Starfruit feature

The Starfruit feature is activated when at least 3 starfruit symbols are collected. Here, you will benefit from a 5 reel, 243 ways to win reel set meaning you can form winning combinations by getting matching symbols on adjacent reels but in any position. Every spin consumes 1 collected starfruit symbol.

Grape feature

Collecting 3 grape fruits will trigger the Grape feature – all low value royals (A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols) are removed from the reels completely. Each spin consumes 1 collect grape fruit.

Lychee Wild feature

The Lychee Wild feature is played when you collect 3 lychee fruits. All lychee symbols are then replaced with lychee wild symbols which are more valuable. Every spin consumes 1 collect lychee fruit.

Hainan Ice thoughts

The Hainan Ice slot is colourful and well designed – you’ll want to jump on a plane to a tropical island no doubt. There’s a wide range of bonus features and the cascades can give you big multipliers throughout. The best of the features is the Orange feature as the double multipliers can lead to a 20x multiplier and potential wins of up to 4,000 times your stake on each spin.

With an RTP of 96.82%, the medium to high variance Hainan Ice slot game may be simple but can be highly rewarding if the multipliers work their magic. If you like the tropical feel, Yggdrasil Gaming’s Spiña Colada is recommended.
