The Power to Burn vs the Power to Freeze
Frozen Inferno is a 4-row, 5-reel, 40-fixed payline, online slot set against either a fiery or frozen background depending on which game Mode is chosen. In Fire Mode, the symbols are red, the Wilds are flaming and the background is volcanic with bits of ash floating down. In Ice Mode, the symbols are blue, the Wilds are Frosty and the background is a frozen wasteland with bits of snow falling. The music creates a mood of mysticism and adventure. Play online from either desktop or mobile device!
WMS slots generally offer uncomplicated betting options, and Frozen Inferno is no exception. This online slot allows players to choose a Total Cash Bet ranging from 40p-£200 at LeoVegas by adjusting the Bet/Line (0.01-5.00). Frozen Inferno displays values for Balance, Total Bet and Win in cash along the bottom of the screen. Paytable values are also listed in cash. They change to reflect the Total Bet selected, so that players can view potential wins for their chosen Bet.
Frozen Inferno has 16 symbols total. There are 6 special symbols: Ice, Frozen Wild, Fire, Roving Wild, Ice Bonus and Fire Bonus. The Ice/Fire Bonus symbols are involved in triggering Free Spins. The Ice/Fire symbols can add additional Wilds to the reels during gameplay. Wilds can replace any other symbol, except for the other special symbols, and can form winning combinations. Frozen Inferno’s 10 regular symbols pretty much stay the same despite Ice/Fire Mode selection. The only significant difference is color – blue/red respectively. Listed in order of highest to lowest value, they include: Wizard, Castle, Potions, Crystal Ball, Scull, Wizard’s Staff, Ring, Rune Stones, Amulet and Scroll.
Frozen Inferno gameplay is left to right. So, get 3+ matching symbols, starting from reel 1, to form a winning combination. Single payline profits are quite low when compared with most other online slots. To profit along a single payline, get 4+ Wizard/Wild symbols or 5+ of any other symbol. Both multiple wins on differing paylines and the constant presence of 1-4 Wild symbols during gameplay work together to boost Total Wins.
The highest paying symbols of Frozen Inferno are the Wizard and Wild which pay (£2.50, 50p, 10p) for a Total Cash Bet selection of 40p. This gives Frozen Inferno the potential to award up to 6.25x the Total Bet on a single payline and up to 250x the Total Bet along all 40 paylines each spin. With Free Spins and the max Bet selected, this gives Frozen Inferno the potential to award up to £250,000 on a single Bet.
Frozen Inferno’s Autoplay allows for 10, 50, 100 or 200 consecutive spins. Set it to stop when: a loss/win exceeds a set amount. Game Settings include: adjust sound.
Bonus Features of Frozen Inferno
Persisting Bonus (Roving & Frozen Wilds): 1 Wild symbol is permanently present on the reels. Get up to 4 at a time. Free Spins activation resets the game back to 1 Wild.
Roving Wilds: At the start of Fire Mode, a single Roving Wild appears on reel 3. Fire symbols that appear will transform into additional Roving Wilds. This Wild moves constantly during gameplay.
Frozen Wilds: At the start of Ice Mode, a single Frozen Wild appears on reel 3 where it will remain during gameplay. Ice symbols transform into additional Frozen Wilds when they land on the reels.
Free Spins: After 4 Wilds are added to the reels, the appearance of Ice/Fire Bonus symbols triggers a round of Free Spins. Get an unlimited number of Free Spins until 5 wins are achieved. All Free Spins are played out on a new set of reels with both sets of Fire and Ice symbols. All matching symbols can form winning combinations despite difference in color. For example, a Free Spin yielding 3 Enchanters (2 blue & 1 red) along a payline would count as a winning combination. Get up to 4 Roving and 4 Ice Wilds on the reels at a time. This Feature cannot be re-triggered.

Which Power Will You Choose?
The animated symbols/background give Frozen Inferno a pleasing overall appearance that sets it apart from other WMS slots. While the difference in appearance between the 2 Modes is stark, Frozen Inferno doesn’t possess enough depth of game design to be truly intriguing. At least, not when compared with Betsoft’s Good Girl Bad Girl which has 2 Modes that offer differing volatility, Bonus Features, betting options and the ability to activate both Modes at once. Of course, fans of magic/adventure themed slots will still enjoy the overall experience delivered by Frozen Inferno’s graphics and music.
