Enter the ancient fantasy kingdoms guarded by two fiery dragons on the slot from Dreamtech Gaming, powered by Yggdrasil’s YGS Masters platform. Ice and Fire is pitting two queens and their fire-spewing creatures against each other in an intense clash on a dual reel set with cascading wins, shared wilds and two types of free spins that can lead to wins of up to 19,139 times your bet.
Ice and Fire is a video slot with a dual game window, each in a 5×5 format with 60 fixed pay lines, bringing the total to 120 pay lines. Wins are awarded separately for each grid for three to five matching symbols or in combination with a wild on a line from left to right only. You can face the fiery dragons on desktop or mobile from 0.12 to 30 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility with a generous RTP of 96.64%.
A dual reel set means usually a high game window when they are stacked or a rather wide grid when they are set side by side. Dreamtech went with the latter option creating to opposing game areas, each with its own colour scheme and high-value pay symbols. While on the one side it is all about ice with distant snow-capped rock formation the other side is all about fire with the reels ablaze and the air coloured red.
The pay symbols start on both grids with the card royals from 10 through to A, awarding across the board 0.66x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed on the Ice side by rings, owls, ice tigers, ice dragons and the ice queen while on the Fire grid you will find orbs, horses, wolves, fire dragons and the fire queens, each set in their respective colours schemes. Hit five on a line to win 1.33x to 26.4x your stake.
A magic book is the wild symbol, appearing on reels two, three and four on each grid only and substituting for all regular pay symbols. A golden dragon egg marked with the word itself acts as the scatter on this slot and can turn up on all reels on either side.
Ice And Fire Slot Features
Prepare for an intense reel clash when you load the game as the two dragons are fighting for supremacy across both kingdoms. Dreamtech, known for its fantasy-themed slots that often come with Asian-inspired characters, went to great length to express the spirit of the dragons throughout the gameplay.
Core to the action on the reels is the Cascading Wins mechanic, where at the start of a spin sequence 25 symbols fall from the top onto each game grid. Any winning combinations are removed while new symbols drop into place. The process is repeated as long as new winners land after a cascade. Wins are evaluated after each symbol drop and paid cumulatively once a sequence concludes.
A special role falls to the Shared Wilds, which can appear on the three centre reels on each game window. When they do, they will be mirrored on the same position on the opposite grid except if a scatter has landed in the same spot, providing extra potential to score a win. Should some go unused within on symbol drop, they will be copied again after a cascade as long as the spin sequence continues or until they become part of a winning combo.
The game comes with two free spin modes, each with a different trigger. For the first, keep an eye on the counter on top of the game window. Scoring a win will illuminate one diamond. You will need to hit four winning cascades within one spin sequence to trigger the Free Spins feature. The two dragons will appear, allowing you to pick one which will then reveal 8, 10 or 15 free spins as well as 100 or 100 extra wilds to be added to the reels for the duration of the round. You can retrigger the feature by scoring again four winning cascades in a free spin. The game will add the same number of free spins as initially awarded.
The second free spin mode has the bigger win potential and is triggered when you land three dragon egg scatters within one spin sequence. You will get 10 Multiplier Free Spins plus an extra +5 free spins for each additional scatter landing on the triggering spin, which can be indefinitely retriggered. The win multiplier will start at x1 and increase by x1 after each winning cascade, no limits.
The eternal battle of Ice and Fire on a dual reel set. What can possibly go wrong? Visually, the slot is a feast for the eyes with each side being presented in fitting colours and minute detail, e.g. the process of removing the symbols after a spin with crushing ice on the left and burning tiles on the right. The ambitious design is matched by an equally ambitious win potential just short of 20,000 times your bet. A full screen of the fantasy screen on both grids will yield roughly 1,500 times bet, which is a long way off the maximum mark and will need a high multiplier in the free spins, a combination that will be as rare as finding ice in the desert.
