Wins of Winter Review
There is no doubt that when Fantasma Games created Wins of Winter, they had fun and adventure in mind. The game is bright, vibrant and has so full of special features that it's impossible not to have a good time.
We love the wintery theme and cute, cartoon graphics. But don't be fooled by this game's sweet, Disney-like appearance. With a grid formation giving you 20 paylines, and a stack of unique special features, Wins of Winter has the potential to land you some fantastic cash prizes.
And with a top prize of 5,000x your stake, it's time to wrap up warm and take a trip to the magical wonderland that is Wins of Winter!
If we're honest, we were a little sceptical when we launched this game. The wintery theme has been done to death, and the animations on this game are fun but can make it look a little juvenile. However, we were forced to eat our words within a minute of playing Wins of Winter.
The design works really well with the fun grid formation, and the blue and white colour scheme create a great atmosphere, especially when it comes to those shimmering frosty frames and blue snowflake symbols.
The background of an Alpine forest and icy lake also add to the mythical vibe of this game. And while the animated symbols are largely mediocre, with a lively soundtrack and fast gameplay, you can't help but fall in love with this silly yet dynamic winter slot.
With its cartoon looks, you might think that Wins of Winter will be a standard slot game with no real uniqueness or special features. But luckily, that's where you'd be wrong! This game has so many features that it's hard to keep up. But you'll get the hang of everything after a short while.
Unlike most slot games, Wins of Winter operates a grid with 5 rows and between 3 and 5 reels, giving you an impressive 20 paylines to work with. As usual, your job is to match symbols across the reels in order to make winning combos.
And with the chance to enter into the Christmas gifts bonus game, collect snowflakes in the Progression Meter and activate the awesome Mirror Feature, there are many chances to multiply your winnings in this fast-paced and energetic slot.
We especially love the Chest Feature, whereby if you're lucky enough to find a chest symbol on a reel 5, you can receive either snowflakes that go into your Progression Meter, or activate Frozen Frames that give you better chances of landing wilds.
These innovative touches all add to the eclectic experience of Wins of Winter, and the mechanics of this game are far more sophisticated than its goofy animations would initially have you believe.
The Wins of Winter game offers some excellent chances to walk away from this frosty little wonderland as a big winner. A top prize of 5,000x your stake, and a ton of bonus features to help you on your way, should be enough to grab your attention.
But the fact that this game comes with medium volatility also means that your chances of winning a generous amount are far greater than if you play some of the extremely highly volatile slots that have become popular of late.
The snowflake symbols will help you to trigger wilds, which help you to create paylines. Plus, the Frozen Frames give you more opportunity to lock special symbols in place across the reels. And the addition of the Chest Feature, Progression Meter and Mirror Feature all provide multiple avenues with which to make those all-important winning combinations.
If we had one negative thing to say, it's that the RTP is quite low on Wins of Winter. At just 94.30%, this game falls quite heavily below the 96% average for a slot title. However, with all those special features, a generous 20 paylines and medium volatility, there's still plenty of opportunity to win big with Wins of Winter.
We were so pleasantly surprised by Wins of Winter. When we heard that this was a winter-themed slot, there was a bit of a collective groan in the office. And while this title from Fantasma doesn't exactly blow away the competition in terms of graphics, theme or animations, it more than makes up for its flaws with some incredibly varied and energetic gameplay and more special features than you can shake a frosted stick at!
We love all the added touches to this game, including the Frosty Frames and Progression Meter, all of which come together to create a fun, quirky adventure that has the potential for some seriously big wins.
