Playtech’s Viking-inspired Ice Cave slot set to raid online casinos

  • Playtech dips into Norse mythology for latest slot
  • Packed with characters from myth and legend

Playtech’s latest game is as cool as you like. Ice Cave is a 20-payline slot that draws its inspiration from Norse mythology, but there’s no need to be intimately familiar with Jarl, Valkyrie and all the rest to appreciate this 5-reel frolic.

Chip away at frozen bonuses

There are many ways to interpret the legacy of the Vikings, and Playtech have chosen to focus on the Arctic conditions the warriors stoically endured. Players have multiple ways to win in this action-packed slot which features Ice Wilds and the prospect of triple wild wins.

There are also Hammer Wilds to watch out for, symbols which will invade the board to smash and chip away at frozen wilds, boosting their power threefold in the process.

The Viking symbols are the game’s most valuable; five of these bearded warriors on a payline will be enough to earn you 250x your bet. Mobile and tablet-compatible, like all of Playtech’s new releases, Ice Cave can be played from as little as 0.10 to as much as 30.00 coins per spin, which is fairly modest.

Spin with the gods

For those who are into their Norse mythology, characters to look out for as the game develops include Jarl, who is the son of the god Rig, Fenrir the wolf, Raven, Longship and Valkyrie who possesses the power to decide who lives and dies in battle.

Other symbols correlate to such concepts as wealth, joy, victory, power and protection. Playtech is anticipating that Ice Cave will prove popular across the Nordic market, which is famed for its love of slots, as well as in sunnier climes that aren’t prone to sub-zero temperatures for half of the year.

The Ice Wilds which form an integral part of the game will freeze any time they land on reels three and four and will remain this way for subsequent spins until Hammer Wilds show up to chip way at them.

The game also comes with a feature bet, which requires increasing your stake by 50%. Do this and you’ll be eligible for Ice Wilds also appearing on reel five.

OUR VERDICT


There’s plenty of detail packed into this slot – so it’s worth looking at the paytable before you start and have a few spins on your online casino’s demo mode before playing.


It has a strong theme and we’re sure that it will have appeal broader than just Scandinavia.


This game should be broadly available, but doesn’t appear to be on online casinos just yet. Loads of them carry Playtech games, so check the likes of bgo Casino, and some of the big bookmaker casinos like Ladbrokes, Bet365 and Coral.
