Winter Wonders slot - Free Play - Game Review
Winter Wonders is a winter-themed video slot from Red Tiger Gaming, for most of us this is a new provider of slot machine games around today! Unlike most of their titles, Winter Wonders use a slightly different build, and instead of using 5 reels, and 20-pay-lines, you’ll instead, see 5 reels, and 40 pay lines!
First off, you’ll see there’s two types of symbols, as with most Red Tiger Gaming games. The low-paying symbols are depicted using traditional playing card symbols, including 10, J (Jack), Q (Queen), K (King), and A (Ace), and the higher-value symbols are game specific symbols, and include a Medallion, a Necklace, a Crown, and a Fairy.
The Fairy is a Wild Symbol, and replaces for all symbols, aside from the scatter symbols.
Like most Red Tiger Gaming games, there’s a selection of random, in-game features, and on any spin, before the reels have landed, the Fairy can fly onto your screen, and award one of the following mini features:
Random Big Wilds Bonus – If this lands, the Fairy will turn 1, 2, 3, or 4 reels completely wild.
Special Reels Bonus – Land this, and the Fairy will remove all the classic lower-value playing card symbols, such as Ace, King, Queen, Jack, and Ten for one spin, giving you a huge chance to win big!
Magic Reels Bonus – Land this, and one, or more reels will morph together, ensuring they land exactly the same symbols.
Magic Nudge Bonus – The Magic Nudge feature is much like the nudge feature on a fruit machine – you’ll see the reels “nudge” up and down in order to reveal a better symbol combination.
There’s also a classic free-spins round, and this is triggered by landing three of the gemstone scatter symbols anywhere in view on the reels. Once you manage to land them, you’ll then get to pick one of them, and the one you pick reveals the amount of free-spins you’ve won. You can win between 9 and 15.
During the free-spins, you’ll notice the Fairy flies out a LOT more, so many of your free-spins will have one of the four special mini-features… and this makes playing a LOT more profitable!
