Now that we’ve all recovered from the series of cringe worthy puns, on to the main story, the gameplay. This is a five reel, nine pay line slot game that comes with a minimum bet of 20p, right up to a maximum of £180. The payoff frequency is on the high side, but smaller payoff amounts take the variance down to a medium, based on these facts we would call the variance a medium-high.
This is where Polar Slots takes the gameplay to a whole new level – Winning multipliers range from anything between 3x up to a staggering 2,000x. Even we couldn’t believe the 2,000x multiplier glaring at our faces in the game.
The Wild Cards symbol may replace any symbol on your reels except for the Penguin Dash mini-game and the Free Spin symbol. On the topic of free spins, three, four and five scatter symbols on a winning line will reward you with five, seven and nine free spins respectively. They also act as win multipliers, awarding you with up to a respectable 100 times your bet.

This game’s selling point is its Progressive Jackpot that can only be won by getting five Jackpot symbols on a payline. A mixture of wild and jackpot gives a ‘mere’ 300 times your spin wager, which is totally acceptable by our books.
Next up, we have the much awaited mini-game, which is triggered by having two or more of the Penguin Dash symbols in the winning line. The Penguin Dash feature is pretty innovative to be honest. You get to do anything and everything between rolling dices and walking on win multipliers.
Every time the penguin lands on a multiplier it will be added to the final multiplier, and landing on golden fishes will reward you with huge multipliers, filling the game up with more suspense that you did expect. Unfortunately, stepping on fish bones would get you knocked off the platform by a huge orca (not a dolphin!), and this ends the mini-game.
A mini-game that gives a theoretical maximum payoff of 116 times the entering bet is nothing short of extraordinary. It is worth noting that out of the four attempts at the mini-game, we got the golden fish twice, with an average payout multiplier of at least 10x and above; great odds if you ask us.
The last feature is the Auto Spin feature that can be set to stop only if:
- You get a win exceeding a set amount of money in one spin
- Your credits drop below a set threshold
- The number of spins you set were achieved
This game loads fast, is very reactive – every touch registers well, it has large buttons, a simple interface and fantastic graphics, some might find the colours a little on the dull side, but for us it does fit the ‘polar’ theme of the game well.
Animations are very interactive, we would like to see perhaps even livelier animals if we were to nitpick. Having said that, the audio more than makes up for it with every touch and poke registering as a satisfying sound effect as well as the goofy background music.

Another feature unique to this game is its simplicity, sometimes when our brain wants something easy, we give it something easy.
