Megaways Jack Frost Features
It is good to know that fixed paylines are completely redundant in this game. Being a Megaways slot means that winning symbols only need to land on adjacent reels starting from the leftmost reel. Each reel can present up to 7 symbols and this means a whopping 117,649 paylines could be in play. Winning symbols are removed and new ones tumble down into place. If another win occurs, then the mechanic keeps on going.
Speaking of winning symbols, you are keeping your eyes peeled for 5 low-paying Royals plus 5 picture symbols that include a snowflake, a frozen apple, a robin, a reindeer and a young lad holding a snowball. 3 special symbols are doing the rounds and these are Wilds, Scatters and Jack Frost symbols.
Jack Frost Modifiers & Free Spins
Wild symbols will substitute for all regular paying symbols while Scatter symbols are needed to trigger the Free Spins Bonus. The Jack Frost symbol is a little different in that it brings about modifiers rather than anything else. In the base game, one of these symbols landing on the reels might guarantee a win by creating a combo of Wilds and regular symbols. It might also land on a Wild symbol and become an x2 Wild.
During the Free Spins Bonus game, Jack Frost can award extra spins, and an additional Multiplier and unlock one of the locked reels. You might see that higher-paying symbols replace lower-paying ones and if Jack Frost is still on the reels after a feature has occurred, then he will turn into a Wild as well.
The Free Spins Bonus requires 4 Scatter Symbols to appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. At the beginning, you are awarded a number of spins, multipliers and locked reels. As you know, you can unlock these reels by landing Jack Frost symbols during the Bonus game. Your possible values are up to 20 spins, an x8 Multiplier and a maximum of 6 locked reels.
