Hainan Ice Review
Developed by Rare Stone, Hainan Ice is a tiki-themed slot that plays on 5-reels with 25 paylines. Of course, you can expand these paylines to 243 ways to win with the Starfruit feature. Ultimately, this slot focuses on collecting different fruits and gaining the bonuses attached to it. Players can win up to 2,000x their stake provided that they land lucky. So grab your drink and relax by the beach in Hainan Ice.
Sadly, there's not a lot to the background of this slot as it's quite generic and looks a little outdated. There is of course the ocean in the background with palm trees and sand nearby, but that's about it. It's nothing spectacular and doesn't even animate - which makes it feel quite lifeless.
The symbols themself look decent enough on the reels and the addition of ice surrounding them adds to the holiday aesthetic it's trying to put forward.
Unfortunately, there is no music and just ambient sounds. You can hear seagulls and ice falling but that's about it. It could've done with some tropical music or something to get you pumped for a holiday - no one is going to want to go to a resort with no character or excitement.
It should be noted that this slot doesn't use the traditional reels and instead uses cascading reels. Ultimately, this means that the reels fall onto the reels rather than spin and similarly, they fall off too. Anything else you could need is at the bottom with the payline details to the far left and the spin button in the middle.
With a high RTP of 96.82% and a low volatility level, Hainan Ice is perfect for newcomers to slots or people who prefer frequent low wins. You can win up to 200x your stake in the base game by landing 5 of the lychee wilds but can win up to 2,000x your stake by landing them with a x10 multiplier.
Whilst Hainan Ice won't blow anyone away with its creativity, the slot itself is fun enough to play. It's simple enough that newcomers can pick up and play, whilst having decent enough features for seasoned players to enjoy.
If you like tiki slots with a luxurious edge, then Hainain Ice is for you. However, if you are looking for a bigger payout, we suggest trying Drinks on the Beach.
